Now that we’re officially in 2019, the /Film team wanted to take a look back at the year in film that was 2018, and that includes some of the best marketing we saw.

Not too long ago, we got our first look at Toy Story 4, which included a glimpse at some new toys coming to the franchise. The first teaser trailer introduced us to Forky, a craft-like “toy” made out of a spork, pipe cleaner and googly eyes.
