List: Top 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2019
This week on Episode 309 of the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed our Top 5 most anticipated films of 2019. It’s a new year and that means there are a lot of new movies for us to look forward to this year. 2018 was a spectacular year for film and it should be really exciting to see how or if that progression continues into 2019. In terms of mainstream entertainment, Disney will be (Lion) King this year. With films such as The Lion King, Aladdin, Toy Story 4, Star Wars: Episode IX, Avengers: End Game, Captain Marvel, and a few others, it’s going to be a huge year for the mouse house. The indie circuit looks quite appealing as well with films from new and promising directors and veterans alike. We had a lot to discuss here and it was fun talking about what the year has to offer.
