Why Go: Two artists who have consistently released hits over the past ten years are teaming up for a joint tour. It’s gonna be the best music.
After some delay, former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello has confirmed a new name and new date for her debut solo album. Titled Camila, the solo album will drop in January and feature the singer’s huge singles, including “Havana” and “Crying In The Club” as well as the new tracks “Never Be The Same” and “Real Friends.”
Charlie Puth has consistently been releasing strong singles, including “We Don’t Talk Anymore” with Selena Gomez and the massive “See You Again” with Wiz Khalifa. But the singer and songwriter has yet to become a household name. We’ll see if that changes with his upcoming album.
It’s been six years and a second album since Awolnation released their debut single “Sail” and took over the airwaves. With the band’s upcoming third studio album due out in February, the political and social climate is prime for another gritty, scream at the top of your lungs and thrash around follow-up.
We’d be amazed that Ariana Grande is already reportedly back in the studio so soon after the tragic events that took place at her 2017 Manchester concert, but after watching the singer return to the city for a concert so soon after the event, her resolve and determination goes without question. Whether we’re going to hear a changed Ariana after Manchester or one that still deliver chart-friendly pop hits is to be seen.
Selena Gomez has been releasing singles here and there since taking a self-imposed exit from the public eye in 2016, but since then the singer has undergone more life changes. A life-saving kidney operation, a public relationship with The Weeknd, and a reconciliation with ex-Justin Bieber will all hopefully make for an album that gives fans a more personal look at the famous singer.
The park is dead, but the dinosaurs are not. At least, not yet. With the dinosaurs now roaming freely on the island, their existence is once again comprised thanks to an impending volcano eruption. Time to save the creatures who want to kill us.
In Theatres: June 22
It was a day that felt like it would never arrive, but super hero audiences are finally getting a leading character of colour. With director Ryan Coolger’s Black Panther poised to make history with casting alone, the stunning visual effects and world of Wakanda have us counting down the days until February 16.
In Theatres: February 16
From Wakanda to the dream world created by Ava DuVernay in A Wrinkle In Time, there will likely be a spike in IMAX tickets in 2018. We want to see these magical worlds on the big, big screen. Plus, Oprah, Reese and Mindy. Take all our money, Disney.
In Theatres: March 9
From finally getting a super hero of colour to finally getting a mainstream teen love story featuring a gay leading character, 2018 is looking good at the movies. Based on the YA novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, the film stars Nick Robinson (Everything Everything) as a closeted high school student who is about to be outed. But mostly, it’s giving a mainstream voice to people who are usually pushed into the underground cult film world.
In Theatres: March 16
Sandra. Rihanna. Mindy. Cate. Sarah. Helena. Anne. Awkwafina. Finally, a heist film featuring an all-female cast. Grab your black trench and dark sunglasses, we have a movie to see.
In Theatres: June 8
Sunglasses. Coats. And eight fabulous female stars. Warner Bros. has released the first poster for #Oceans8, introducing the eight master thieves as they prepare to pull off a top-secret heist. The sequel to Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Ocean’s trilogy stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, and Helena Bonham Carter.
