FINAL NOTES: I want to thank everyone whom not only has taken a look at this list (and perhaps tried to predict what might end up on it) but has also read any of the reviews I have posted on this site and given me feedback. Having the site continue to grow and expand by adding reviews from Netflix originals as well as requests from you, the reader, will add even more depth to this website and none of it would be possible without you guys. It means a lot that you all read the reviews, most anticipated lists, Oscar predictions, etc. I want to keep this website running as long as I live and your support makes that possible. Please feel free to comment on this list if you think I left any anticipated films out or what you all are looking forward to in 2019. As always, I don’t think a year has gone by where every anticipated film/TV show has come out exactly on time. There are always delays in Hollywood so release dates of both films and shows will be subject to change and will be adjusted upon new, additional information being released. I hope you all have a wonderful 2019, go see one of the many exciting, new films coming out, enjoy the Golden Age of TV that we are experiencing and take care of yourselves. God bless and here is to 2019!
