Happy New Year! We hope you had a great night last night and aren’t too hungover today… It’s the start of an exciting new year so we’re going to have a look at some of the upcoming releases that are on our radar.

2017 was a great year for music. Gorillaz and Jamiroquai came back with new albums after a long-ish hiatuses and there’s strong rumours that Arctic Monkeys will return in a similar fashion in 2018. MGMT, Vampire Weekend and Major Lazer have also all got new stuff in the works. Major Lazer seem to be able to churn out hit after hit with the likes of ‘lean on’ and ‘cold water’ so it’s highly unlikely their new work will disappoint.

As well as the very much anticipated returns of Game of Thrones and Westworld, next year is already showing a lot of promise with brand new releases. Bodyguard, a 6-part thriller by the BBC, stars Richard Madden as a war veteran who is tasked with protecting the British home secretary, played by Keeley Hawes. Dogs of Berlin, the Netflix commissioned German drama, will unravel the Berlin underworld with two conflicting lawmen, battling against growing corruption. Both shows are predicted to carry on the rich vein of television that came out in 2017.

2018 is already looking like a top year for films too, especially sequels. The long-awaited follow up to the 2004 hit Incredibles will finally be hitting our screens in the summer. Creed 2 is also in the works, marking a reunion between Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren 33 years after the hard-hitting Rocky 4. There’s yet another Spiderman movie on the horizon too. The computer animated Spiderman: Into The Spider Verse is a bit different though, focusing on a new hero who has to fill the shoes of Spiderman.

That’s a brief round-up of what we’re looking forward to next year. And as always,  we’re really excited to create and source amazing opportunities for candidates and clients alike.
