Avengers: Infinity War

What's it about: The official synopsis by Marvel reads, "As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain".

Who is in it: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Chadwick Boseman, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Tom Hiddleston, Peter Dinklage, Idris Elba and Karen Gillian.

Why it may work: Well, it is the third installment in the hugely successful Avengers franchise and fans have been waiting for it for a long time. With the previous movie raking in more than a billion dollars worldwide, Avengers: Infinity War is also expected to be a huge blockbuster.

Meri Nimmo

What's it about: Meri Nimmo is a coming-of-age story about an eight-year-old who is friends with Nimmo. After being egged on by his friend, he starts believing that he and Nimmo are in love. When Nimmo gets engaged, the eight-year-old lashes out and plans to woo Nimmo.

Who is in it: Newton actress Anjali Patil and child actor Karan Dave.

Why it may work: The movie has Anand L Rai attached as a producer and possesses a different storyline with talented actors. It is also only releasing on the streaming service Eros Now which may work in its favour, since it comes across as a niche romance.

Meri Nimmo has been directed by Rahul Shankalya.
