Try to remain calm, but we're pretty sure we've already found 2019's best movie

We are trying not to get too excited. Trying, and failing.

Okay... look. We're willing to admit that when talking about The Meg - and how it was going to be the Greatest Film Of All Time - we may have jumped the gun a bit.

It couldn't be helped - it involved the set-up of Jason Statham fighting a giant shark, so how could we NOT think it was going to be the Greatest Film Of All Time?

So, we've learned our lesson, scaled back our expectations a bit, and are instead saying that Crawl will 100%, definitely, without doubt, be the best movie of 2019. With a possibility of all-time still on the table.

Here is the plot synopsis:

A young woman, while attempting to save her father during a Catagory 5 hurricane in Florida, finds herself trapped in a flooding house and must fight for her life against alligators.

Hurricanes. Floods. Alligators. Kids saving their fathers. Oscars? Maybe.

Signed up to play the young woman is Kaya Scodelario (Skins, The Maze Runner), while her dad will be played by Barry Pepper (Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile).

Behind the camera, it will be directed and co-written by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D), and is being produced by horror icon Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Don't Breathe).

After the huge success of low budget horror A Quiet Place ($333 million on a $17 million budget), Paramount Pictures have put the movie into fast-track development, which means we'll probably get to see it around the same release date as A Quite Place had in 2018, so we're going out on a guess to say it could be in cinemas by April 2019.

But do you know what isn't a guess?

The fact that it'll be the best movie of 2019.
