10 Completely Original Movies To Look Out For In 2018

10. Bad Times At The El Royale


Release Date: October 12

At this point, not much is known about Bad Times At The El Royale, but everything we do know points to this being one of 2018's best offerings.

Drew Goddard (The Cabin In The Woods, Cloverfield, The Martian) is on writing-directing-producing duties, and reportedly, the film will be set in the 1960s at a dilapidated hotel called the El Royale.

A varied cast of characters will clash at this hotel, including a down-on-his-luck priest played by Jeff Bridges, an unknown character played by Chris Hemsworth, and a charming Southern girl played by newcomer Cailee Spaeny (who can first be seen in Pacific Rim: Uprising next March).

It sounds a little like Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (a kooky group of personalities all coming together in a removed location), and with the ever-reliable Goddard crafting this one from the ground up, the director and his cast have free reign to make something wild and memorable.

Let's hope they succeed.
