2018 Movie Releases I Can't Wait For!

Last year was the first time I did a post like this and I quite enjoyed it so I've decided to do it again this year. Of course, January is all but done with but I compiled this full list at the very start of the year so will still include what I had noted down for January too.
Due to the cinema situation in my town (which I have mentioned too many times to compute, so I'll not repeat the story yet again), many of these I won't get to see until quite a while after their release, some even not until they come out on DVD. I do try to see the majority of Disney releases on opening weekend if funds/life permits though.
So here are the movie releases from 2018 that I am looking forward to.
