12 must-see movies of 2019 that you may not have heard of yet

2019 is shaping up to be a great year when it comes to movies with a lot of exciting films to look forward to. We pored over release calendars and scoured the internet to bring you a unique list of films that you just can't miss. We've picked one movie for each month of the year, and the list does NOT include reboots, spin-offs or superhero films. 

'Serenity' — January 

'Interstellar' co-stars Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway reunite for thriller 'Serenity'. McConaughey plays the role of a fishing boat captain who leads tours on the tropical Plymouth Island which, at first, seems like an idyllic place. However, his time in the sun is ruined when his ex-wife shows up on the island and makes him an offer to kill her new, violent rich husband.

'Serenity' is set to hit theaters on January 25, 2019.


'Isn't It Romantic' — February 

This Netflix Original revolves around Natalie, an architect, who has been warned as a child that love is not for her because she's no pretty woman like Julia Roberts. Years later, we see her as the girl who doesn't believe in romance. Here is the twist. She hits her head in an accident and the next day finds herself in an alternate universe where life is 'literally perfect' as if the Instagram beach filter has just been applied to it.

Natalie can't believe her luck and her worst fears have been confirmed as she finds herself trapped in a romantic comedy, rated PG-13, wherein she is playing the star. Her new life makes her wary of all the elements that come associated with a romantic film and the only way she can get out of this nightmare is if a man falls in love with her. 

This rom-com directed by Todd Strauss Schulson has Rebel Wilson as Natalie, her 'Pitch Perfect' co-star Adam DeVine as her friend, the handsome Liam Hemsworth as her love interest and Priyanka Chopra as a yoga ambassador.

It isn't every day that you get to see Liam woo a very wary-looking Rebel Wilson. And, as the trailer shows, somewhere in the middle, she does fall for his charm. Watch out for some light-hearted banter, some swoon-worthy moments from the 'stud-muffin' Liam, and New York City in Instagram mode.

'Isn’t It Romantic' opens in theaters on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2019.
