TOP 5: (+3) films that promise to be blockbusters still in 2018


Have you ever had the feeling that every other year, cinema is not so favorable for viewers? Turn and move, catching a movie, sometimes, can be the real lifeline for tedious, rainy, hot days or even for a little relaxation. Who has never made that holiday schedule with the children, taking them to an afternoon at the cinema with popcorn, chocolates, soft drinks and everything else they are entitled to?

It seems that 2018 was a very promising year for lovers of the seventh art. Movies like Avengers: Infinity War, black Panther, Jurassic World: Threatened Kingdom, The Incredibles 2, Mission: Impossible - Fallout Effect and Deadpool 2, made the worldwide box office earn a few more dollars – considering that studios currently produce great films, on a large scale without losing quality.

Proof of this, are the heroes, who each day and launch, gain more fans worldwide. And it's not just going to the movies and watching the movie at previews, premieres or during the first week of release. Wearing the shirt of the favorite character has become a routine and companies that have licensed products (or not), profit more and more from the playful, despite the financial crisis in which the country is.

The year is not over yet and despite great debuts (and box office), 2018 still has great releases that promise to close the year with a flourish that for many, it was not a great year. Thinking about it, we prepared a TOP 5 of next box office that can be real blockbusters still in 2018 and as we are cool, it has +3 films to please all audiences.

This term is applied to some popular products, especially cinema films, but it is also used in other media.
