11 movies we can’t wait to watch this year
How about you? Which ones are you going to watch?
1. Halloween Kills:
A direct sequel to 2018’s Halloween reunites co-writers Danny McBride and David Gordon Green (who also directs). Jamie Lee Curtis once again plays Laurie Strode as the troubled yet resolute Laurie Strode. Final Girl (Judy Greer, Andi Matichak) prepares for a bloody battle with the legendary slasher with her daughter (Judy Greer) and granddaughter (Andi Matichak).
2. Dune :
The epidemic has delayed this ambitious film version of Frank Herbert’s beloved sci-fi novel for so long that it was included in our Fall Movie Preview last year. It’s about time director Denis Villeneuve took a risky approach. Beyond the enormous budget, impressive visual effects and the possibility of a follow-up, this film boasts led by Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson and Oscar Isaac and includes Hollywood’s brightest talents, including Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista and Zendaya.

3. The Harder They Fall :
When a ruthless bandit escapes from prison, he gathers his posse and heads off in search of a vengeful cowboy with whom he shares a grudge. There are some essential elements to the plot, but this is unlike any other Western you’ve watched before. Idris Elba, Regina King, Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, LaKeith Stanfield, and Delroy Lindo are among the ensemble cast led by co-writer/director Jaymes Samuel. There’s little doubt that the West will turn savage soon.
4. Last Night in Soho:
Edgar Wright wrote and directed by Shawn of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, and Baby Driver. But this time, he’s forgoing the pranks and shenanigans in favor of a stylish and sultry thriller. A young fashion designer named Thomasin McKenzie plays the role of a woman transported back in time to 1960s London and falls in love with a seductive singer (Anya Taylor-Joy). In the course of what begins as a sexual encounter, she finds herself embroiled in a murder investigation with only a limited amount of time to do so.
Nomadland, Chloé Zhao’s small yet stirring film, was nominated for two Academy Awards earlier this year. With a new cast of superheroes, she’s bringing her famed dramatic style and talent to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. An all-star cast led by newcomers Gemma Chan and Kumail Nanjiani joins Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie and Brian Tyree Henry in the epic journey of the Eternals—an eternal alien civilization determined to protect humankind from the terrible Deviants.

Our desire for a “dystopian dad movie” had not occurred to us before this point. Then, in a post-apocalyptic setting, director Miguel Sapochnik paired up America’s dad with a cute dog and a charming robot. Now, all we want to do is tag along on this dangerous yet ultimately heartwarming road journey. That, and to lavish plenty of belly massages on the sweetheart.
7. The Feast :
This outstanding Welsh film has received acclaim at film festivals worldwide for its particular brand of fright. A politician and his socialite wife throw a lavish dinner party for their guests, but they fail to see an unexpected guest until it’s too late. The Feast draws inspiration from folk horror traditions to bring scares, thrills, and plenty of gore. Those with weak stomachs should steer clear of this one.
8. Ghostbusters: Afterlife:
The Ghostbusters franchise’s fourth installment leaves Fresh York City and the iconic Ghostbusters firehouse in the past, favouring a new chapter with a Stranger Things feel (and not just because it co-stars Finn Wolfhard). Before embarking on their terrifying journey, the late Egon Spengler’s grandkids investigate his paranormal investigator background in an abandoned farmhouse in rural Oklahoma. Father-and-son team Jason and Ivan Reitman return to direct the sequel to the 1984 hit. Sigourney Weaver, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson are among the familiar faces he’s bringing along for the voyage.
9. House of Gucci:
Despite having actors like Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, and Adam Driver on board, director Ridley Scott is still taking some big chances with this project. First, he dresses up Jared Leto as an aged rapscallion in prosthetic make-up. Then he pushes Lady Gaga into her sassy femme fatale role to go full-on camp. This drama, based on a real-life incident, might be either fascinating or ridiculously over the top. Or maybe it’s both.
Nevertheless, despite these fascinating — and unexpectedly heartwarming — sequences, he has deftly crafted a humorous parody on religious faith and political corruption.
10. Spider-Man No Way Home:
Doctor Strange makes a triumphant comeback from the depths of darkness to help out the brave Peter Parker. The two Spidey movies directed by Jon Watts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe were spectacular (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-man: Far From Home). The trailer for his third film teases a lot of action, eccentric humour, and cameos galore. Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Benedict Cumberbatch feature a superhero film that the whole family will enjoy.
11. The Matrix Resurrections:
A much anticipated fourth feature picture is here for the action-sci-fi series that set the standard and left us speechless with its first three entries. After twenty years have passed since Neo and Trinity last fought against a totalitarian AI that imprisoned humanity in a dull simulation, director Lana Wachowski returns to direct Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in a fascinating new quest. But these brave souls who fell in love can’t seem to recall ever meeting?
