'The Dark Knight' was the last movie to enter the top 10 of IMDb Top 250 list. Which of these upcoming movies do you think has the best chance to enter the top 10 of IMDb Top 250?

Hi jonathan beckinsale,

I think you missed my question. I asked:

Which of these upcoming movies do you think has the best chance to enter the top 10 of IMDb Top 250?

Sure. Anything you want to say about the film as a 'note'?

About Ready Player One: I didn't know much about it other than Spielberg's involvement, but you could also say that it will have a score by John Williams and that it is based on a bestseller by Ernest Cline.

Pibby,

Thanks. i have added:

#10 Ready Player One (2018)

Directed by: Steven Spielberg
Note: Spielberg's upcoming movie, based on Ernest Cline's best selling novel of the same title. Spielberg has directed 31 movies so far, among them 7 are in the IMDb Top 250 and one ('Schindler's List') is in top 10.

Me too!!!

Among the film directors, at this time Nolan has the best Top 250 success rate. 7 out of 9 films, 77.78%.

Interesting question, though all have an extremely difficult chance I'll go with Dunkirk (2017).

I would agree, I don't see or know of anything that is a the horizon that I think would even have a shot. It is a tall task in the first place, but would require a movie that blows away audiences by firing on all cylinders. It would require near perfection in every facet from writing, stars, direction, effects, production quality, great source material, etc, I could see something maybe making the Top 250 from the list though.

I think looking at the titles in are currently in the IMDb top 15 might yield some clues though. It would either come from an iconic franchise or book that elevates it to a next level result or totally out of left field from a hot new talent writer/director with a fresh take that wows audiences.

LDP,

Thank you for your suggestion.

Can you please tell me why do you think 'Deadpool 2' has the chance to be among top 10?

Deadpool comic book character is not a popular.  First movie became #1 highest gross R-rated movie.  Considered for awards. No one wants to compete with Deadpool 2 opeing weekend. An interesting mix of great comic book characters.  Big stars and newbies actors, good action director etc.

My pick is Guardians of the Galaxy. Its just a suggestion, you don't have to add.

Maybe this one?

Probably not a Top 10 movie, but maybe a good one to add in your poll.

Thank you.

I need some time to think about this again. At this time, I can't find any link/possibility for this film to be a Top 250 contender. The director Alexander Payne hasn't created any film which is currently in Top 250 and his highest rated movie is 'Nebraska (2013)' which is rated 7.7.

I'm sure that some of these movies might be added in the Top 250 list, but can't think of any movie that powerful to enter the top 10.

Still, I would go with Dunkirk because most of Nolan's movies get higher ratings and it looks like it will be a big success.

LDP,

Thank you.

Unfortunately, none of the previous two 'Thor' movies have ever placed on IMDb Top 250.

1. Thor (2011) - 7/10 (568,973 Votes)
2. Thor: The Dark World (2013) - 7/10 (441,988 Votes)


Thor: Ragnarök (2017) is going to be the biggest box office bomb of the solo 'Thor' franchise. But the IMDb Top 250 placement is something different. Plus, the director's (Taika Waititi) films have never appeared in Top 250.
