2017 has been a really big year for Hollywood and a similar fate is expected for 2018. There are a lot of big movies coming out in 2018 and most of these highly anticipated movies are sequels to previous movies. Here is a list of movie sequels that we are most looking forward to in 2018.
Even though the first Goosebumps movie did not do very well at the Box Office, it was still quite a fun ride and that enabled it to be renewed for a sequel with Jack Black and the previous cast on board once again for a new haunted fantasy adventure.
It is going to hit the theatres on September 21, 2018. So don’t forget to check out this one. It’s gonna be a wild ride.
Insidious Chapter 4
The third Chapter of the Insidious Franchise turned out to be a disaster, still, it did not just stop over there, a 4th chapter is going to hit the theatres on January 5, 2018.
It will be directed by Adam Robitel and it has been written by Leigh Whannell. It looks like it will be much better than Chapter 3 as it is going to feature an entirely new cast including actors like Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, etc. The director of first two blockbuster Insidious movies James Wan couldn’t come as he has his plate full.
Bad Boys 3
There have been talks for the 3rd installment in the Bad Boys franchise for quite a while now and finally, a date has been fixed for the movie. Not a lot is known about the movie till now but it is officially going into production at the end of this year.
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are going to reprise their roles and the movie is going to release on November 9, 2018. Well, expect the same racy, high-octane action laced with snappy dialogue which won the hearts of the audience last two times around. Can’t wait to see this one.
Maze Runner: Death Cure
The third and the final movie of the franchise is already under production and will hit the theatres on February 9, 2018. Even though the second movie was not that good, still it was good enough to allow the makers to finish the initially intended trilogy.
It is expected that the movie will be better than the second part and Dylan Obrien is going to reprise his role along with the previous cast. Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones, Fast And Furious) has been a great addition to the movie and will add value to the project.
The Equalizer 2
Denzel Washington did a remarkable job in the first movie and people have been desperately waiting for a sequel ever since. He is one of the best action heroes of our times but the fact that separates Denzel from the rest of the pack is he bring realism to his performances.
Well, get ready to watch Denzel’s class on September 14, 2018, and the sequel will probably be even better than the previous one.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2
The first Fantastic Beasts movie broke many records and lived up to the Harry Potter franchise as well, even though it was a prequel. At the end of the first movie, it was revealed that Johnny Depp is the real bad guy and he is going to reprise his role in the sequel. He is playing Gellert Grindelwald. The main cast includes Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone, Jude Law as young Dumbledore etc.

The sequel to the hit MCU movie Antman from 2015 is going to hit the theatres on July 6, 2018. Paul Rudd is going to reprise his role as Scott Lang/Antman and Evangeline Lilly will get to be the Wasp in the movie.
Along with these two, Michael Douglas and Michael Pena are going to reprise their roles of Dr. Hank Pym and Luis and just like the previous one Peyton Reed is directing the sequel as well.
Jurassic World 2
The first Jurassic World movie was a huge hit at the box office and it was very well acclaimed by the fans as well as the critics. It starred Chris Pratt as the main protagonist who looks after the genetically modified hybrid dinosaurs in the same Jurassic Park where the tragedy took place….guess what it happened again….duh
