Oh, the smell of popcorn. It’s always there when you’re going to the movies to see the latest blockbuster.

This year over forty movies are set to hit theaters across the world, bringing large audiences.

Many action movies are being released this year, and students will be anticipating the day they hit theaters.

One of the highest anticipated films of 2019 is Marvel Studio’s Captain Marvel. The movie follows Carol Danvers, who while warring against the Kree, struggles to piece together memories to find out who she truly was in her past.

“I liked how it went back in time,” said sixth grader Kyle C., who is looking forward to Avengers: Endgame to see the aftermath of the snaps that occurred in Avengers: Infinity War.

Marvel is releasing several other movies this year, including Avengers: Endgame and Spiderman: Far From Home.

“I like actions movies, and I’m looking forward to Avengers: Endgame,” said seventh grader Cole D.

DC has also released a batch of superhero films, with Aquaman coming out in December of 2018.

Aquaman is about Arthur Curry, the heir to the throne of Atlantis. He must fall into his role, or Orm, his half brother, will take over and try to conquer the surface world.

“It was a new DC character, and I thought we needed more variety,” said Jaia A., a seventh grader.

“My favorite genre of movie is action, but I also like comedy,” said Jaia.

Some comedy movies of 2019 are What Men Want, Shazam, and A Madea Family Funeral.

Eighth graderMyles K. also enjoys comedies. “I liked A Madea Family Funeral. I’ve been following the series since I was young,” he said.

Elle M., an eighth grader, is looking forward to Shazam!, which comes out in April.

“There’s a Frozen 2 coming out, so that’s pretty cool,” said Jaia.

Not only is Disney coming out with Frozen 2 this year, but they’re also coming out with more re-adapted live action movies. This year Dumbo, The Lion King, and Alladin are all being remade.

A very popular genre is romantic comedies. A movie coming out this year is Five Feet Apart, starring Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson.

Sixth grader Chloe C. said, “I’m looking forward to it because they’re in love with each other’s souls, and I think that’s the sweetest thing ever.”

Though Streaming Services like Netflix and Hulu do provide hundreds of movies to viewers, theaters aren’t going anywhere. According to the Washington Post, movie ticket revenues rose eight percent in 2018.

Movie admissions have dropped since 2016 by one percent but with movies like Avengers: Endgame coming next month the rates are expected to rise back up.

As long as producers keep making movies, students of Westminster will continue to drop by theaters to see the latest blockbusters.
