2019 Blockbuster Season Preview: Introduction

With Disney now owning Fox and having a pact with Sony, all of the biggest potential box office hits this year will belong to them. From the likely biggest hit The Lion King to its other live-action remake Aladdin to its Pixar release Toy Story 4, that alone would be enough to be envious, but throw in Sony’s Spider-Man: Far from Home and Fox’s New Mutants and it could be an explosive year.

Looking at the rest of the season, there aren’t a lot of potential box office hits. Anne Hathaway comedy The Hustle, Toho (releasing the film in Japan) sequel Godzilla: King of the Monsters produced by Warner Bros., Octavia Spencer horror flick Ma, Sony reboot Men in Black International, horror sequel Annabelle Comes Home, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw are the best bets.

To introduce you to the upcoming films, there will be two preview articles every month and this introduction every four months. The Season Preview article will focus on one of three seasons Spring Season (January through April), Blockbuster Season (May through August) and Oscar Season (September through December). In these introductory articles, I will give you the current release schedule for the specified season, which may change as the release dates get closer.
