Kingsman: The Golden Circle
The first of Robert Pattinson’s upcoming movies is based on the popular video game of the same name. The film is set to premiere on May 17th, 2019. After being forced out of MI-6 by King T’serks, Eggsy (Pattinson) enlists in another secret society of spies, the Kingsman, led by Bill (Hugh Laurie).

Terminator: Dark Fate
The next film from director Tim Miller and producer Megan Ellison is also set for release on May 17th, 2019. The titular character is back, and this time he is even more badass than before. Dark Fate picks up right where Terminator: Salvation left off. Sarah Connor (played by Linda Hamilton) has lived long enough to see the end of human civilization as we know it. After being captured by Skynet and escaping, she takes refuge with a band of resistance fighters led by Alexander (Ariana Grande). Together, they plan to destroy the computer network that enslaves mankind.
The next film from director Annabel Jankel is also set for release on May 17th, 2019. In Hellbent, a disgraced priestess named Nola (Saoirse Ronan) travels to the Scottish Highlands to settle a debt that she feels she deserves. Once there, she aligns herself with a group of mercenaries led by a mysterious man named MacLeod (Pattinson) in order to finance the rest of her climb to power. Her goal is to use a dark artifact called the Cudgel to transform herself into the Goddess of War, thus ensuring her place in the afterworld. Of course, nothing is as it seems, and Nola must fight for survival amongst the mercenaries and the otherworldly creatures that roam the Scottish Highlands in search of treasure.
On May 24th, 2019, the Coen Brothers’ next film will be released. The plot of The Irishman follows the early 20th century adventures of American Prohibition agent James M. Haney (Al Pacino). After being forced out of the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, and Tobacco, Haney teams up with Irish mob boss Johnny Depp to hunt down members of the Black Hand, a group of Catholic paramilitaries who committed horrific acts of terror during the Irish War of Independence. The film also stars Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, and Robert de Niro. The Irishman marks the Hollywood pairing of Al Pacino and Joe Pesci for the first time since 1991’s Wild Bill.
