The year 2017 is very quickly coming to an end, and with that, film fans are closing the book on all their favorite films, and are looking forward to the blockbusters of the future — namely 2018.

While 2017 had a good amount of blockbusters hit theaters, 2018 will be no slouch. In addition to three Marvel Studios films, it’ll also have the likes of Jurassic World, Pacific Rim Uprising, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Tomb Raider to rub elbows with. Franchises both new and old will be present and accounted for.

But with all these big franchises around, what are the most anticipated films? IMDb has you covered, and based on the number of page views for next year’s movies, here are the most anticipated films of next year:

1. Avengers: Infinity War (May 4, 2018)
2. Black Panther (Feb. 16, 2018)
3. Deadpool 2 (June 1, 2018)
4. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (June 22, 2018)
5. Tomb Raider (March 16, 2018)
6. Pacific Rim Uprising ( March 23, 2018)
7. The Predator (Aug. 3, 2018)
8. Ocean’s Eight (June 8, 2018)
9. Mission: Impossible 6 (July 27, 2018)
10. Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25, 2018)

Not a bad list, though one thing that is surprising is Solo: A Star Wars Story being relegated to the very bottom of the list. You’d think that a film mired in as much controversy as Solo would actually bring a lot more folks to the IMDb page than not. That’s apparently not the case.

Also of note is Ocean’s Eight. While it is a part of a bigger franchise, it’s definitely a much smaller scale movie than the others. Perhaps it’s the ensemble cast that had people visiting the IMDb page to see who would be joining this female-focused reboot.

Which of these films are you looking forward to most? Let us know your thoughts down below!
