I feel like those are the ones getting a big advances and the most hype and I hope this means we get to see more of them hit the big screen soon.
Agreed. Though I really, really hope diversity isn't treated like a trend that fades away after a while.

THE HATE U GIVE is doing incredibly well, has made a ton of money, and has a huge presence. The movie is currently being made. And the upcoming movie for SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA seems to be getting a lot of buzz.

I will be very surprised if CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE doesn't do super well. I think non-Western, non-white fantasy is going to be the next big trend.
