2018 has been a huge year for movies so far, with Black Panther, Deadpool 2, A Quiet Place and Avengers: Infinity War just a few of the highlights in what has been a solid first six months at the multiplex.
But it's not just about what's currently on; each passing week also brings with it a number of announcements for movies that are two, three or even four years away, and while not everything is worth getting excited about, a select few projects are.
Having only recently been unveiled, details surrounding these movies can be scarce, but sometimes, all it takes is a director, a lead actor or the vaguest of concepts - or a combination of those three - to take a film from an "oh, okay" level to an "OMG MUST-SEE". And these ten definitely fall into the latter camp.
So, while 2018 still has a lot of goodies left to offer, let's look at some of the movies it's brought us that are still in the very early stages of development. Here's your basic watchlist for the next couple of years...
While last year's Kingsman: The Golden Circle managed to make a healthy amount of money for Fox, it was a big step down from the original in terms of quality, and it cast a little bit of doubt over the future of the series.
Well, scratch that, because there are currently a whole host of Kingsman projects in the works, including three movies and an 8-hour TV show. One of these movies has been dubbed Statesman, and will further explore the American, whiskey-chugging version of the Kingsman spies, first introduced in The Golden Circle.
Statesman - an organization that featured Channing Tatum as Tequila, Halle Berry as Ginger Ale and Jeff Bridges as Champ - were woefully underused in The Golden Circle, so it's only right that we get to spend more time with them, and their world is definitely rich enough (and those three actors prolific enough) to make a standalone movie worthwhile.
The Golden Circle was quite bloated, but a stripped-down, raucous Statesman adventure featuring the whimsical delights of Bridges and the wit of Tatum could be exactly what the series needs.
