While many people may be focused on the big fictional movies that will see release in 2018 — like Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ocean's 8 — others are more interested in discovering all of the amazing documentaries coming out in 2018, and luckily for them, there are a lot of them. From anticipated theatrical premieres to new efforts from Netflix, HBO, and others, the coming year will offer plenty of documentary content — with more ways than ever to consume it.
The subjects explored in 2018 docs will in many ways be a continuation of the conversations people were having in 2017. The #MeToo movement will surely be at the center of documentaries about Harvey Weinstein and Gloria Allred, the still perplexing (and frustrating) election of Donald Trump will be explored in Michael Moore's newest feature-length doc, and transgender issues are likely to be a significant part of a documentary about Chelsea Manning. There's also some lighter fare for people who need a break from heavy-hitting documentaries, including a fun Star Wars doc, a nostalgic look back at everyone's favorite neighbor, Mister Rogers, and a relaxed and rare conversation with Queen Elizabeth II. So take a look below at 19 documentaries coming out in 2018, and be sure your streaming service subscriptions are all up to date.
