Release Date: July 16
Why were excited: To be honest, Christopher Nolan can film a paper bag for two hours and I’d probably still be engrossed. Luckily, Tenet seems a lot more interesting than global conspiracies, shadowy organizations, and most importantly, screwy time-manipulation shenanigans all mucking about. Prime Nolan material if you ask me. We’ll be in the theater day one.
Release Date: March 20
Why we’re excited: A Quiet Place Part 2 picks up right after the events of the first cult-classic movie and will feature a more badass Emily Blunt staving of the noise-sensitive monsters of the apocalypse-something we’ve been wanting to see since the last movie.
Release Date: May 1
Why we’re excited: It’s the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie of Marvel Phase 4. It’s also the first Marvel movie to finally feature Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow despite having died in her previous appearance in Avengers Endgame. What’s not to love?
Release Date: February 5
Why we’re excited: Although the movie looks like its more of a Harley Quinn vehicle than anything else, there’s a lot to get excited about between the stylish visuals, over the top action, and overall zany quality of the movie. Here’s hoping the other Birds of Prey get some more play.
Release Date: June 5
Why we’re excited: It’s the sequel to the best film in the DC Extended Universe. We get to see Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman in a seemingly more mature light as she’s adapted to living in conventional society and accepting its beauty. Also, the 80’s synth-wave soundtrack is pretty amazing. and oh yeah, Steve Trevor pulls a Captain America and comes back from the dead. HOW?!
Release Date: Feb. 21
Why we’re excited: It’s Vin Diesel being Vin Diesel as a super-soldier. SOLD!
Release Date: April 3
Why we’re excited: It’s the first-ever superhero horror movie. That slant alone is enough to get us in the theater. It’s set in the X-men Universe post-Marvel-Fox merger? Hell Yeah!
Release Date: May 22
Why we’re excited: IT’S FAST AND THE FURIOUS. Cars! Explosions! Family! We’re in there!
Release Date: June 25
Why we’re excited: It’s the big-screen adaptation of Lin Manuel Miranda’s first Broadway hit musical about a Hispanic-American neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City. Yes. Yes. Yes. Here’s hoping a big screen Hamilton is in the works somewhere down the line as well.
Release Date: Summer 2020
Why we’re excited: Yes it’s a Scooby-Doo animated movie but this one actually looks like it’s got some heart to it. Add to that the fact that this might be the jumping-off point of the rumored Hanna Barbera Shared Universe courtesy of a cheeky appearance of The Blue Falcon (and maybe even Dynomutt). We’re definitely curious to see where this is going to go. Hopefully, the answer is SWAT Kats.
Release Date: April 8
Why we’re excited: Daniel Craig finally returns as James Bond! Between Bond coming out of retirement, the existence of a new female 00 agent and Christoph Waltz’ Blofeld makes an appearance referencing the events of Spectre, No Time To Die seems to have more continuity to it that most other Bond flicks and we’re really jazzed about that aspect.
Release Date: July 3
Why were excited: Ryan Gosling plays Guy, a non-playable character in a videogame that just has enough of the regular day in day out life of being in the background of the action. We’re watching just to see how meta Free Guy is going to get as a send-up of gaming and action movies alike.
Release Date: July 10
Why were excited: It’s a more grounded, Stranger Things/IT-esque small-town horror take on Ghostbusters. Interestingly enough it’s not pulling on too much of the nostalgia that’s associated with Ghost Busters and we think that’s a good thing. The world is ready for a new take on Ghostbusters we’re excited to see what it looks like.
Release Date: 2020
Why were excited: The King’s Man explores the secret history of the Kingsman universe and we’ll definitely be onboard with that. If it’s anything like the previous movies, we can count on there being insanely choreographed action and devilishly clever humor. That’s all we really need.
Release Date: Oct. 2
Why were excited: The sequel to the unwitting superhero buddy-cop/ romcom is definitely on our radar. The first one nailed the look and feel of our favorite anti-hero despite taking a few liberties with his origin story. All in all, it was an enjoyable experience for what it was. Here’s hoping it ties into the Spideyverse or the Marvel Cinematic Universe soon, despite the tiff between Sony and Marvel.
Release Date: Oct. 16
Why were excited: For a movie that’s supposed to be coming out this year, we’ve barely heard anything about the third G.I. Joe movie. It’s rumored to be kickstarting the Hasbro Shared Universe (yeah everyone’s still trying to get in the act) with possibly the new Transformers post Bumblebee reboot and the producers really really want Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to return. Those are basically the only two things we know about the movie but two things which, admittedly, we really want to see happen.
Release Date: Nov. 6
Why were excited: I admit even as a comics fan, Eternals marks my comics knowledge blindspot. I know next to nothing about the Eternals, their line-up, their powers and place in the universe. However, that might be a good thing, as the new post-Endgame MCU might find a need for new and exciting heroes and stories to care about and get invested with moving forward.
Release Date: September 3
Why were excited: The image above is basically all we know about the forthcoming Monster Hunter movie that’s slated to come out later this year. Queen of videogame movie incarnations, Milla Jovovich? Check. Oversized weapons? Check. Monster Armor? Check. Admittedly, we don’t have high hopes for this one but the overwhelming curiosity to find out how they’re going to adopt it is strong–like Nergigante strong.
Release Date: Dec. 18
Why were excited: Tom Holland playing a young Nathan Drake learning the adventuring ropes from mentor Sully played by Mark Wahlberg? SIGN US UP.
Release Date: Oct. 2
Why were excited: It’s the King of Monsters versus the King of The Apes! We REALLY don’t need to explain why that’s so hype. LET’S GO!
