And we are just two months away from the beginning of a new year and that is the year 2020. We are always excited for New Year as it gives the feel of a new and fresh beginning. Entering into the New Year has always been exhilarating for people. New Year comes up with everything new, for instance, new resolution list, new TV Shows and new movies. Where the current year has given us blockbusters like Avengers: Endgame, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the 3D version of all-time favorite The Lion King and of course, The Joker, the year 2020 is anticipating the release of some more super-hits from Hollywood.
So, here we are with the most highly anticipated upcoming movies for the year 2020.
1. The Grudge
I am sorry to get a scary start but the movie, The Grudge is ready to hit the cinema in January 2020. Nicolas Pesce’s directorial movie is the American remake of the Japanese horror film. A ghost with a long memory is readying to take revenge again. The lead cast includes Andrea Riseborough, Betty Gilpin, John Cho, DemianBichir, and Lin Shaye. This hair-raising horror flick should be on the ‘must-watch’ list of the movies.
2. Bad Boys for Life
Oh man, who isn’t in for Will Smith? He is coming again to hit your screens with his impeccable acting!
Directed by Adil El Arbi and BilallFallah, this movie is releasing in cinemas on 17th January 2020. Although the original director of the series, Michael Bay is not serving on the director’s seat for this one, but hopes are high from the new team.
The third movie on my list is Eternals. If you are into sci-fi then you should tick this one as well on your must-watch list. Directed by Chloe Zhao and having big wigs like Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden and Gemma Chan as star-cast, the movie is set to release next year. Currently, the movie is in Filming-phase.
Eternals movie is a saga of a race of immortal beings that have shaped the history of Earth and civilization by living on it for ages. Hmm, sounds interesting, and to know more we will have to wait until it hits the cinemas!
4. Godzilla vs. Kong
This movie would be a treat to watch as both the gigantic monsters will fight each other to become the King of Monsters. People expectations are high from Adam Wingard’s directorial film.
5. The New Mutants
The next-generation of X-Men is coming to meet you, of course on your screens. The director of The Fault in Our Stars has gathered fresh faces of Hollywood, such as Anya Taylor from Splits, Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones and Charlie Heaton from Strangers Things to play the next-generation role.
The New Mutants are imprisoned in a secret place and there they discover their hidden abilities which scare them to the core. The movie has some horror and thriller plot twisted together and people can expect to have some adrenaline rush while watching the movie.
I am ticking this one on my list, and you should do the same.
6. Black Widow
Scarlett Johansson is a treat to eyes. She looks so beautiful on-screen and off-screen too. You would be seeing her on your screens in her upcoming movie Black Widow alongside Florence Pugh, David Harbour and Rachel Weisz. Jeremy Renner is said to be making a special appearance in Cate Shortland’s directorial film.
The very well-known name of the film industry, Christopher Nolan who has many blockbusters on his credit is coming back with his new project called Tenet. Although much detail about the story of the movie is not available but fans, at least I am expecting something related to international espionage from this movie. Sounds intriguing!
Anyhow, the star cast of the film has some amazing actors such as John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Robert Pattison, Kenneth Branagh, Michael Caine and Himesh Patel. Okay! Now I am getting more excited to watch the movie but we have to wait until July 2020 to see what Nolan has for us all.
8. Top Gun: Maverick
Okay, so where are the 90s kids (they are no longer kids BTW)? Many of you would remember Tom Cruise’ movie Top Gun and after 31 years the team of Top Gun is coming back with the action-packed sequel. This time Joseph Kosinski, the director of the movie has gathered young and most-in-demand emerging stars of Hollywood. Tom Cruise will be playing the lead role of course, but young faces who are on board are Miles Teller and Thomasin McKenzie along with Val Kilmer. It is reported that Miles will be playing Goose’s son while Kilmer is hitting back as Iceman.
So, get ready as Tom Cruise will give you an adrenaline rush with some crazy actions and fights.
9. Death on the Nile
Kenneth Branagh is returning as detective HerculePoirot in his latest Agatha Christie adaptation. He is having the charge of director seat and will be playing the lead role as well. However, no further detail has been given on who else will be sharing the screen with him.
10. No Time to die
Another highly anticipated movie of the upcoming year is No Time To Die. Daniel Craig is returning to play 007 for the final time (nothing is confirmed though). Cary Fukunaga is the director of the movie. Rami Malek who has recently won the Best Actor award is rumored to be playing the villain. Well, if this turns out to be true then I am definitely heading to cinemas to watch it in April next year.
Movies have always been the ultimate source of entertainment. I hope you would include these movies in your watch-list if you haven’t done it yet.
