Wrinkle in Time is set for 9th March 2018, Avengers Infinity War is on for 5th April 2018.
The Han Solo movie is set for 25th May next year, expect to movie but I sure as hell hope not.

These are all US release date so expect some UK juggling, check out the full list below.
Although the anticipation for the new Disney film Moana is quite high its not enough to knock off the three time champion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Fantastic Beast stays put at the top of the Uk box office for its third straight week with an amazing weekend gross of £4.4 million, this brings the films total gross to £37.8 million.
There should be one more weekend at the top for Beast before the Galaxy Far Far Away comes blasting in, but that should be enough to cement the film as one of the years top films.
The film still has a way to go before beating the lowest grossing Potter film which was 2004's Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban which made £45.6 million.
Highest new film of the week then come in at 2, Moana from Disney makes £2.2 million on its UK debut.
Compared to Frozen from Disney which came out at the same time of year in 2013 this is half its debut gross of £4.7 million hence we probably wont see this scaling those heights.
Also new this week is Sully at number 3 with £1.7 million, Pitbull. Niebezpieczne Kobiety at number 5 with £0.4 million, The Edge of Seventeen at 9 with £0.27 million and Bleed For This at number 10 with £0.25 million.
Highest total grossing movie this week is Fantastic beasts and longest run on the box office is Trolls which has been around now for 7 weeks.
A year ago
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 stayed at the top for a third weekend while the top new film was Christmas With The Coopers at number 5.
Five years ago
Arthur Christmas went to the top of the box office for the first time on its fourth week of release while Happy Feet Two was the top new film.
Ten years ago
Bond stayed at the top for a third week in Casino Royale while the top new film was Flushed Away at number 2.
Fifteen years ago
Spending a third week at the top was Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone while top new film was Zoolander at number 2.
Twenty years ago
The Long Kiss Goodnight was at the top on its debut weekend, it knocked The First Wives Club down to number 2.
Twenty five years ago
Point Break made it 2 weeks at the top while top new film was Hot Shots! at number 3.
A very quiet weekend in the hangover after Thanksgiving and Black Friday which has Moana from Disney stay firmly at the top while horror Incarnate is the only new film landing at 9.
Moana has now taken a total of $119 million in the US with a second weekend take of $28 million, in such a low grossing weekend not a bad take.
The film wont scale the heights of Frozen but it will be yet another sizeable hit and it fills the gap while we wait for the next Pixar film.
With the rest of the top 10 more or less staying the same as last week the top new film landed right down at number 9 in the shape of Incarnate.
Incarnate took $2.6 million for the weekend and with this showing will most likely fall out of cinemas this week.
Disney threw their latest film hoping to hit the heights of Frozen at US audiences this weekend in the shape of Moana, they are hoping that the long holiday weekend would give it a boost.
With a debut weekend of $55 million over the Friday to Sunday they can't complain, and the long weekend from Wednesday night saw the film gain over $80 million.
With many families out shopping on the big retail weekend that includes black Friday this isn't such a bad debut, and with good reviews this could well go on and on for Disney.
Next weekend will be the big test, no new child friendly film are set for a release in the coming weeks which is good for Moana but then they get the Galaxy Far Far away to deal with, but who from, yes Disney, the Mouse House should have a good holiday.
Last weeks top film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, fell to number 2 this weekend and gained $45 million, this brings the films US total to $156 million, not the heights of Harry Potter.
Also new this week is America is Allied starring Brad Pitt at number 4 with $13 million and Bad Santa 2 at number 7 with $6 million and very bad reviews.
Longest stay on the US box office is split between 3 films, Doctor Strange, Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge all on 4 weeks, although the highest total grossing by a long margin is Doctor Strange with $205 million.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens wont be shifted from the top of the video charts and is still outselling for the third week in a row all in its path.
The last time we saw this king of dominance of video charts was back in 2013 when Disney released Frozen for sale, they sure are hitting the right note.
Highest new film of the week is new at 2, Daddys Home which was released at UK cinemas on 25th December last year.
The film was a relatively big hit considering it was up agains The Force Awakens and manages an acceptable 7 week run on the box office.
In that time it grossed a nice £16.3 million which in terms of stars Ferrell and Wahlberg isn't bad.
For Farrell it is his 3rd biggest film and for Wahlberg it is his 4th biggest film in the UK.
Also new this week is In The Heart of The Sea which lands at number 3.
Still at the top for a third week is Disney's Zootopia which is on track to becoming the next toon to take over $1 billion and the top animated movie! Frozen had staying power and a killer song which kids loved, Zootopia may not beat the Let It Go movie but its become another massive hit for the mouse house with an excellent $102.8 million third week from 50 countries.
The films total now sits at an excellent $591 million with no sign of letup yet, and with the spring holiday looming and no real competition who know where that could go?
A fairly quiet week on the film front with nothing wanting to open so close to the expected massive opening of Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice.
The highest new film of the week on a global platform is Kapoor and Sons, and Indian movie opened in 12 countries and takes $.6.8 million and opens at number 10.
Here is the full top 10 world grossing movies this week:
The UK video chart this week has the yellow creatures from Despicable Me, the Minions, make their home video debut at the top.
Minions was release as one of the tentpole film releases of the summer on 26th June 2015 and on its debut weekend took £11.5 million, and of course debuted at the top.
The film spent an incredible 16 on the box office and has only really just left cinemas, its last appearance being October 30th.
Over the course of its 16 weeks in the UK Minions grossed a total of £47 million, it is the fourth highest grossing film of 2015 and the 31st highest grossing in the UK ever.
Across the globe it also did really well grossing $1.1 billion and is only the third animated film to go over the billion mark after Frozen and Toy Story 3.
Spy which was the top film last week falls down to number 3 this week.
With such a strong selling film released this week there were no other films on home video to his the chart.
Achieving something which hasn't been done in a fair while this week The Divergent Series Insurgent holds onto the top spot for a third week in a row.
The last film to achieve this was Disney Frozen well over a year ago, that film went on the spend most of 2014 inside the top 3 and made many trips to the top.
Highest new film of the week if The Duff which enters the Uk video chart at number 2.
The Duff was released at UK cinemas on 10th April of this year where it made its debut at number 4 of that week, although it was the highest new film.
A 4 week run saw it gross a total of £1.9 million at the UK box office.
There is only one other new film this week in the shape of Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 which enters at number 4.
This has another change at the top of the UK video chart with Dracula Untold being the biggest selling film on its debut week of release.
Dracula Untold was released at the UK box office on 3rd October of 2014 and entered at number 2 that week with a debut weekend gross of £1.7 million.
The film was a relatively small hit and hung around the chart for 4 weeks raking in a total gross of £4.7 million during that time.
New at number 2 this week is The Maze Runner which was a bigger hit at the box office than Dracula Untold, released on the 10th October 2014 it's total gross was £8.6 million over 6 weeks.
Also new this week is The Best of Me at number 5.
Worthy of a mention this week, this is the first week since it's video release that Disney's frozen has not featured on the video chart top 20, it's at number 31.
All change at the top this week as Disney take over with their animated blockbuster Big Hero 6 making it's debut.
Like it's predecessor from the Mouse House Big Hero 6 makes it's debut at the top of the box office, and like Frozen which debuted with £4.7 million Big Hero 6 takes takes £4.2.
The release is just before the Uk school half term holiday which will see a massive boost in it's takings, and although it will do well it wont do as well as the juggernaut that has been Frozen.
Falling from the top spot this week is American Sniper which is this week at 3 and a total gross just shy of £10 million.
Making it's debut at 2, and only why of the top spot by £50,000, is Kingsman The Secret Service.
Other new films this week are: Inherent Vice at 9 and Les Contes Dhoffmann Met Opera 2015 at 10.
A year ago
The Wolf of Wall Street was holding onto the top spot for another week while the highest new film was That Awkward Moment which came in at 3.
Five years ago
There was still no move for Avatar as it held onto the top spot while the highest new film was Mel Gibsons try at a comeback movie in Edge of Darkness at 3.
Ten years ago
Meet The Fockers was the highest new film which debuted at the top of the box office knocking Closer down to the runner up spot.
Fifteen years ago
Double Jeopardy made it's debut at the top of the chart knocking Angelas Ashes down to the number 2 spot.
This week a new release takes over at the top of the chart in the shape of the Luc Besson directed Lucy.
Starring Scarlett Johansson the film was released at UK cinemas in August of 2014 where it entered the box office chart at number 1 and stayed there for 2 weeks.
It took £ 3.07 million on it's debut week of release and stuck around the box office chart for 7 weeks in the top 15 and then another 3 outside.
During it's release it made a total gross of £14.6 million making it the 292nd highest grossing film of all time in the UK.
Last weeks top film, Left Behind, falls to number 3 this week after a single week at the top.
Also new this week is Before I Go to Sleep at 2.
Worthy of a mention also, for another week, is Frozen which this week slips down from number 2 to number 7, after 42 weeks inside the top 5 this is it's first time this low.
Clearly there were no no releases of not this week as entering at the top of the video chart is Nicholas Cage in a film called Left Behind.
Left Behind was badly received by critics in the US when released on October 3rd and made only $2 million at the box office so the distributers decided not to give it a UK theatrical release.
That decision may have paid off as it sells well on video in the UK, although it is on one of the quietest periods of sale in the UK, the test will be where it is next week.
Last weeks top sale falls to number 2 this week, Frozen from Disney spending yet another week high on the chart.
Other new videos this week are:
Deliver Us From Evil at number 7
The Rover at number 17
After the festive buying season is over and done with and we get into the January sales the video chart usually sees little movement except for the big discounted films making moves up.
Frozen from Disney retains it's hold on the chart and seems at the moment unmovable, it's now 40 weeks after it's debut and has been a mainstay of the top end ever since.
Little more to mention really, the highest new film is right down at number 18, The Guest stars Dan Stevens and is directed by Adam Wingard.
The Guest had a cinema release from 5th September 2014 making number 8 on it's debut with £313,003 and lasted 2 weeks at the box office, it's final UK gross being £832,147.
It's that time of year when we look back at the most this and that of a year.
One of the more interesting lists is that of the most pirated movies of the year.
2014 is the year where The Wolf of Wall Street has been pirate downloaded more than any other.
With Frozen at number two, both films selling really well on home video it does beg the question about piracy ruining sales!
Here is the top 10
The Hobbit series of movies has never quite been the box office kings that The Lord of the Rings Series was, but The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies this week flies in as the top film of the weekend.
Taking a very respectable £9.8 million the third and last film in The Hobbit, and The Middle Earth saga manages to beat everything else with ease, and it also beats the second of The Hobbit films but not the first.
The new number one film takes over from last weeks top film Paddington which falls a single place after two weeks at the top, it's total gross so far is £14.3 million.
Also new this week is Tinker Bell and The Legend of The Neverbeast at 7.

The Expendables 3 was release in UK cinemas on 15th August where it debuted at number 3. It had a short UK box office run of just 3 weeks.
During that time it grossed £3.7 million never climbing highest than 3. It is by far the lowest grossing of the franchise to date.

The inbetweeners 2 takes hold of the video chart number 1 spot on it's debut week of release pushing Guardians of The Galaxy fro the top to third.
The second Inbetweeners movie was released in cinemas on 8th August this year when it broke records by having the highest first day gross for a comedy, it took £12.5 million over it's debut weekend.
It saw a couple of weeks at the top, but had a very front loaded audience as the film only spent 6 weeks on the chart, but it grossed £34.6 million in the process.
In comparison the first movie of the series was on the box office for 9 weeks and took £45 million.
The Inbetweeners 2 is the 56th highest grossing film in the UK, it's not been released in the US yet.

In the end the winner is Big Hero 6 which takes $56.2 million for the weekend, small in comparison to Frozen which was Disney's last film, but still good and the film has had good reviews.
Coming into second place is the Christopher Nolan film, his first since his outing with the Batman franchise, which takes $50 million for the weekend.
Going down to fourth this week is Ouija, the hangover fro the Halloween weekend keeping it going, but it will most probably sink next week.

Never one to milk a franchise, Disney are to release a short film based on Frozen, their smash hit film from 2013, called Frozen Fever.
To be fair after making over a billion dollars at the box office, and having every girl under 12 watching, and singing, on a daily bases the fan need for this is far too great and Disney are just answering their needs.
Due for release in spring 2015 read more about Frozen Fever at the Disney Blog.

Unsurprising this week that the comedy smash The Inbetweeners 2 stays at the top of the UK box office for another week, also no strong new releases helped it's cause.
Proving to be as popular as the original, The Inbetweeners stayed at the top of the tree with a weekend take of £3.4 million which brings its 10 day total gross to £22.3 million.
The first movie had taken £25 million by this point in it's run so this movie is a tiny bit behind but should end up at about the same figure by the end of it's cinema run.
Holding steady at 2 is Guardians of the Galaxy which means that the highest new film is The Expendables 3 at number 3.
This is the lowest grossing film in the (current) trilogy with the first film taking £3 million on it's opening and the followup taking £2 million.
Also worth mentioning this week is Disneys frozen which despite having had a few months on home video now makes a re-appearance on the box office at number 15 with a nearly £100,000 take.
Back to the Future keeps it's appearance in the top 10 due to it's Secret Cinema event showings in London.

Other new film on video this week
The Legend of Hercules at 5
Starred Up at 6
With a membership that is getting ever longer by each year the latest Transformers movie has now taken over $1 Billion in global box office takings.
Transformers Age of Extinction has performed well in Europe and America where most of the films on the list make their money, but where it has really shone is in China where it has become the biggest film ever.
There are now 18 films that have made over a billion but still only 2 that have taken over $2 Billion, the James Cameron duo of Avatar and Titanic.
Of the other 16 most notable are Frozen which is the top animated movie Batman which has 2 films on the list, Middle earth which has 2, one of the Lord of the Rings films and the first Hobbit film, Skyfall which the is top British film, unless you count Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Possibly by the end of the year we'll have a top 20 of $1 Billion grossing movies, although the films with the best possibilities, The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 could miss the mark and we'll have to wait for Avengers Age of Ultron and Jurassic World next year?
In this weeks video charts in the UK The Lego Movie takes over at the top of the pile from Disney's Frozen.

This week Disney prove their sales force by taking the top two slots on the video charts with Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy debuting at the top and Frozen hiding still at 2 for another week inside the top 3.

Frozen continues it run on the video chart with a 13th week none of them being lower than 3.
Last weeks top film, Robocop falls to 3 this week.
This week there is very little to talk about on the DVD/Blu-ray chart. Last weeks top film Robocop is still the top film of the week and the highest new entry is right down the chart at number 16.

Dallas Buyers Club
That Awkward Moment
Out of The Furnace
Frozen from Disney has scaled heights that the Mouse House could have in no way imagined on it's release at the back end of last year, and now it's the 3rd highest grossing film of all time.
All that stands in it's way is the two James Cameron Juggernaut's of Avatar and Titanic which with over $2 billion in world takings will be hard to shift.
Frozen has to date done $1.8 Billion of business across the globe and with Titanic on $2.2 Billion it'll find it hard to match that.
Still for an animated film it's just toppled Iron Man 3 from the number 3 spot with ease and Disney have their biggest film for a number of years on their hands, with merchandise takings as well this has been massive.
The Wolf of Wall Street retains it's lead at the top of the DVD/Blu-ray charts this week as there were no big new releases to challenge the top.
Despite no new releases the film at number 2 could have re-taken the top for a 3rd time, Disney monster smash Frozen moves back up the chart this week.
Highest new film of the week is I, Frankenstein from director Stuart Beattie and starring Aaron Eckhart.
The film was released at UK cinemas on 31st January this year, making a small ripple on the charts at number 4 where it took £811,365 on it's debut.

Starring and directed by Ben Stiller the film was released at UK cinemas at the very end of last year. During a very short cinematic run of just 4 weeks it debuted at number 4 but grossed a reasonable £6.5 million in box office takings.
There were no other new films that charted this week.
With only a single week as the top selling disk in the country Frozen surrenders the crown to another Christmas blockbuster in the shape of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
The second in the Hobbit trilogy from Peter Jackson was released at cinemas on December 8th last year. it Debuted at number 1 where it stayed for 3 weeks, it was around for 8 week and made a collective UK gross of £42.6 million.
Although the film didn't perform as well as the previous film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, it was still a huge hit, it is currently the 33rd highest grossing film in the UK and the 23rd in the world having grossed nearly $950 million.
Frozen falls to second place this week despite it being the Easter Holidays, although the sales figures were still very high.
There were no other new releases this week.
Frozen hits the top spot on it's debut week of release knocking Philomena down to number 4. Frozen was released in UK cinema's on December 6th last year and became an instant hit for Disney.
The film to date has made nearly £40 million at the UK box office and is still in cinemas and this week is number 14 having spent 16 weeks on the box office chart. The film has grossed nearly $1.1 billion world wide and is the 10th highest grossing movie.

This week Disney had a double dip on the UK box office with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Muppets Most Wanted hitting at one and two.
Captain America, the latest from the Marvel Avengers (Avengers Assemble as it's called in the UK) universe of films, was by far and away the better grossing film taking £6 million. The film is a sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger which took £3 million on it's July debut.
Muppets Most Wanted is the follow up to 2012 The Muppets. That film took £2.6 million on it's debut, this one took a very similar £2.2 million.

Muppets Most Wanted

Also worth a mention is that after 2 weeks off the top 15, Frozen has returned at number 15.
This time last year The Croods held onto the top spot holding off G.I. Joe: Retaliation which entered at two.
Five years ago Nicolas Cage starred in the number one films Knowing which also debuted there nocking Marley and Me to number two.
Ten years ago The Passion of Christ stayed at the top keeping Dawn of the Dead at bay debuting at number two.
Fifteen years ago The Rugrats Movie took the number one spot on it's debut knocking Waking Ned Devine down to three with Payback entering at two.
Frozen has been an unprecedented success for Disney, only the second cartoon to ever go over $1 billion at the world box office joining Disney/Pixars Toy Story 3 earlier this yeah.
Now Frozen has beaten the third Toy Story film to become the highest grossing animation ever with a world gross currently stinging at about $1.7 billion (and rising) compared to Toy Story 3's $1.6 billion.
Animation has accounted for some of the highest grossers of recent times, domestically and across the globe, last years in the UK Despicable Me 2 (from Dreamworks) was the highest grossing film of the year and fell just short of $1 billion worldwide.
Disney themselves have always down done well with The Lion King being the highest grossing animation from 1994 until Toy Story3's release in 2010, and The Lion King benefited greatly from it's 3D re-release a couple of years ago.
And to add to this, if you adjust ticket prices for inflation, according to many sources Snow While and the Seven Dwarfs is the most watched film at cinemas of all time, and guess what, thats Disney as well.
There is a new number one on the US box office this week in the shape of Lone Survivor, it tops the box office as it goes on wide release across America.
The films stars Mark Wahlberg and is based on a true story set during the war in Afghanistan about a group of Navy SEALS.
The film replaces Disney's Frozen at the top.
UK release date: 6th December 2013
