10 blockbusters that are expected to earn big this year
1. Avengers: Endgame
Last year, "Avengers: Infinity War" achieved a huge turnover of $ 2.048 billion. Therefore, observers believe that "Avengers: Endgame" - the film that closes the third stage of MCU - will gain even more. Part 4 of the superhero series is expected to surpass box office legends like "Titanic" ($ 2.187 billion), "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" ($ 2.068 billion) with $ 2.15 billion.
2. The Lion King
This is a live action remade from the classic Disney animation work. The live action of "The Jungle Book" earned $ 1 billion for Disney, so there is no reason "The Lion King" would be left behind. Experts expect that when it comes to theaters this summer, "The Lion King" will earn about $ 1.7 billion in the global market.
3. Frozen 2
The success of "Frozen" in 2013 with a turnover of $ 1,276 billion caused a storm, turning this animated film into a mass cultural phenomenon. Therefore, the expectation for the new adventure of ice queen Elsa later this year is huge. "Frozen 2" is expected to be no less than its predecessor with a turnover of about 1.3 billion USD.
4. Star Wars: Episode IX
The Star Wars brand was hit hard with a heavy failure of "Solo: A Star Wars Story". However, "Episode IX" will definitely attract fans around the globe, as this is the ending of the story about the Skywalker family. This blockbuster is expected to hit $ 1.25 billion.
5. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
The series "Fast & Furious" has stormed the theater for years. That is the reason that experts expect that "Fast & furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" will join the club of blockbusters with sales of over $ 1 billion. From the positive audience feedback for the trailer, it is likely that the movie will hit this milestone when it is officially released in August.
6. Spider-Man: Far From Home
The superhero movie will show up in theaters in early July, after "Avengers: Endgame" confirms its strength at the global box office. The media has predicted that the film could hardly reach $ 1 billion. The high possibility is that "Far From Home" will leave theaters with revenue of $ 940 million.
7. Captain Marvel
As of this time, Captain Marvel's booking speed is only inferior to the other two blockbusters of MCU: "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Black Panther". The numbers of "Captain Marvel" are even better than DC's two huge products "Wonder Woman" and "Aquaman". Thus, "Captain Marvel" can earn about $ 920 million.
8. The Secret Life of Pets 2
The first part "The Secret Life of Pets" was unexpectedly successful with a total global revenue of $ 875.5 million in 2016. Therefore, there is no reason why the sequel cannot earn bigger numbers. "The Secret Life of Pets 2" coming to theaters this summer is expected to earn $ 910 million.
9. Toy Story 4
2019 is a booming year of Disney with a series of large-scale projects. "Toy Story 4" is one of the top blockbusters of the giant studio this year. Previously, "Toy Story 3" earned $ 1,064 billion. "Toy Story 4" promotion is not as noisy as the previous one, but the work is still expected to finish with $ 900 million.
10. Jumanji 3
In 2017, "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" caused a big surprise when it collected $ 962.1 million worldwide. Immediately, Sony planned to produce "Jumanji 3". The manufacturer hid the film information carefully with the expectation that it would be a project that brought about $ 1 billion in revenue. However, it is possible that the third part will not explode like its predecessor did. The media predicted that the movie would only reach about $ 860 million.
