Officially, the meteorological winter begins on 1 December. However, the weather here in London indicates that the winter has come. What can you do during low temperatures and rain? Of course, go to the movies! After the summer ‘massacre’ on box-office results, Hollywood studios took their ‘gun’ and released movies such as "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" and "It." Especially the Warner Bros. and New Line horror film has grossed 558,050,110 dollars worldwide, a number which makes the film the top horror film of all time. You can sleep tight tonight, Hollywood industries are saved.

After the ‘cold’ summer results, and stars such as Mathew Machonagy ("The Dark Tower"), Charlize Theron ("Atomic Blonde"), Tom Cruise ("The Mummy"), and Scarlett Johansson ("Rough Night") failing to give the expected earnings, the studios have an extraordinary release schedule. Let’s have a look at the biggest and most promising coming-soon movies.

Buena Vista

The last year’s most profitable studio has some movies for you before 2018. The Hulk is angry and he will smash everything in his way on "Thor: Ragnarok." It could be argued that the cast (Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo, Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, Karl Urban) is like an Oscar nomination list. This is promising regarding the box-office results.

The release date for UK cinemas is on 24th of October. The next movie does not need any introduction. "Star Wars: The Last Jedi." Only one comment I can make here. I cannot wait for the Hans Solo spin-off. Last but not least there is the animation movie, called "Coco," which is Buena Vista’s favorite genre.

Warner Bros

This year’s most profitable studio expects a lot from the "Justice League" movie.

The cast –again- in this superhero movie is full of shiny names such as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, and J.K. Simmons. Apart from this movie, The Warner Brothers will give us "Blade Runner 2049" (5th of September is the premiere), and "Geostorm," a disaster movie with Gerard Butler and Ed Harris (release date: 20 October).


The used to be number one studio has some movies for you. The promising Jo Nesbo adaptation "The Snowman" with Michael Fassbender (13 October), the horror film "Happy Death Day" (20 October), the war drama "Thank You for Your Service" (10 November), and of course the third film of the successful franchise "Pitch Perfect" (22 December).

20th Century Fox

The studio’s effort to become the third most profitable in Hollywood this year, includes films such as the ‘cold’ adventure "The Mountain Between Us" (6 October) starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslet, "Murder on the Orient Express" (3 November) with an all-star cast (Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, and Willem Dafoe), and the animated movie "Ferdinand."

Sony / Columbia

After the disappointing box-office results of "The Dark Tower", the studio will release some movies to fix the problem.

The drama, based on true story, "Only the Brave" (10 November) starring Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges, and Taylor Kitsch. Denzel Washington's crime-drama movie "Roman J Israel, Esq." (1 December). The animation with animals, "The Star" (24 November), and the very promising "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" (20 December).

Other studios

The well-known animation "My Little Pony" (20 October) and the horror film "Jigsaw" (27 October) by Lionsgate. Paramount will release George Clooney's movie "Suburbicon" (24 November) with Matt Damon and Julianne Moore, and the comedy "Daddy's Home 2" (22 November). The horror film "Amityville: The Awakening" (12 October) by Weinstein Company, the drama "All I See Is You" (27 October) starring Blake Lively by Open Road Films. The comedy "A Bad Moms Christmas" (3 November) by STX Entertainment.

Three months full of movies, a variety of genres, and Hollywood stars in their best.
