If you think 2018 was big in terms of movie releases, then you will be shocked by what 2019 has in store for you. A number of epic movies will surely satisfy your entertainment needs over the next few months.
Familiarity is propping up a number of tentpole releases in 2019 thanks to another 12 months of prequels, sequels and reboots. Of course, while we might scoff at Hollywood’s lack of ideas, the dusting off of old movies isn’t always a guarantee of rubbish. Creed, for one, showed how a sequel could bring something fresh to a sequel.
2019’s crop of sequels will include John Wick: Chapter 3, a ne-noir movie franchise that began in 2014. Remakes this year will include The Lion King and Pokémon: Detective Pikachu while we’ll get a pseudo prequel in the form of 1995-set Captain Marvel (the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe).
With that said, you need a plan to ensure you get the best value for your money. If you can’t make it to a cinema near you, then you can invest in a good subscription service provider such as Netflix to enable you to stream your favourite hits from the comfort of your home.
However, despite the fact that Netflix is a giant when it comes to online movie and TV show streaming, the service offers a different movie library in different countries. One way around this is to use a reliable Virtual Private Network since some VPN have been blocked by Netflix.

A remake of the original 1994 movie, Lion King is definitely one of the biggest movies to be released this year as on July 19.

Some of Disney’s fans view the movie as nostalgic, bringing back memories from the original 1994 movie by the same name. However, critics say the movie seems to have focused more on showing off recent advancements in motion-capture tech and CGI.
