‘Dune 2’ Trailer

We are heading back to Arrakis, the land of spice and sand. Denis Villeneuve is whipping up a bonafide masterpiece, which will no doubt be one of the best science-fiction sequels of all time.

Dune 2 release date, casting, characters, and what we know so far - Polygon

Meet Feyd Rautha everyone, the new big baddie of Dune 2. Played by Elvis himself (Austin Butler), in what should be another career-defining performance. Now this is just the first trailer for a movie that is months and months away, but did this thing rock. Sequels are always bigger and pack more of a punch, well Dune 2 should be no different. Dune 2 will have a ton of action something that the first lacked, but that is because they were setting up the story and what’s to come. More action, higher stakes and more characters for us to hate.

The trailer is grandiose, epic and beautiful beyond measure. The visuals are simply stunning, allowing us to dive deeper into the mythology of spice, sandworms and the people of Arrakis. The cast is so damn loaded, we are evening getting the legendary Christopher Walken, in his first major role in almost a decade. Florence Pugh joins in the fun as well, and all the heavy hitters are back.

Dune fell at the very end of the pandemic and didn’t become a box-office success, something I see happening for the sequel. The opening weekend could be double of the original and I would love nothing more.

Just watch the trailer like 10 times, I did.


Most Anticipated Movies of 2023

With The Last of Us on the horizon, yes I know it’s a television show. It reminded me that 2023 is going to be one hell of a year for the movie industry and I’m here for it. I would say that movies are officially back. The pandemic is kind of in the rear view with movies and theatres being back in full force. So here are 15 movies that I cannot wait to see this upcoming year, in no particular order, I’m tired of ranking things.

Scream 6: Director: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett. Release Date: March 10th, 2023

See new Ghostface mask in Scream 6 photo |

In the next installment, the survivors of the Ghostface killings leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter in New York City.

New city, new rules. Ghostface is heading to NYC for the same old song and dance. Stalking the most recent survivors, no one is safe, no matter how far you run. Scream 5 was a massive success, it kind of reinvented the franchise, promoting a new slate of teens in the spotlight, while the legacy characters of Gale, Dewey and Sidney kind of took a back seat. In such a big way, that one of them bit the dust for good, won’t say who incase of spoilers, and what comes as the biggest shock for this newest entry. No Neve Campbell. According to sources and hell even Neve herself, she felt that she wasn’t getting the right amount of financial compensation for this role and she has every right to be pissed off. On the Mount Rushmore of Scream Queens, not having her be apart of this franchise is nonsense. Now, this could be one of the ultimate marketing ploys, and it turns out that Neve will be back (as the killer) or sets up the 7th installment with some sort of stinger at the end of the movie. Either way, I hope that issue can be resolved and we get her back. Scream isn’t the same without her.

Creed III: Director: Michael B Jordan. Release Date: March 3rd, 2023

Jonathan Majors' Creed 3 Bad Guy is Far More than a Mustache-Twirling Villain, Says Michael B. Jordan

Adonis has been thriving in both his career and family life, but when a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy resurfaces, the face-off is more than just a fight.

Much like the above post, this movie will be suffering from one of their legacy characters missing. The first movie in the Rocky universe that won’t have Sly Stallone. What is this world coming to? But there’s a lot to be grateful for and so much to look forward to. Jonathan Majors, yup. Michael B Jordan’s directorial debut, yup. Both of these two just looking like Greek Gods, yup. This could perhaps be the definitive installment in this franchise. Creed II had so much history and emotional baggage, that it almost overshadowed the movie. Drago Jr was a great villain, but Jonathan Majors is such an incredible and well-versed actor, that he will no doubt steal this entire movie. This could be the end of it all as well, who knows. Just something about boxing movies just puts a smile on my face.

Killers of The Flower Moon. Director: Martin Scorsese. Release Date: TBD

Killers of the Flower Moon' - The story of the Osage murders is in production - Alberta Native News

Members of the Osage tribe in the United States are murdered under mysterious circumstances in the 1920s sparking a major F.B.I. investigation involving J. Edgar Hoover.

Okay this movie has to come out this year. A movie people have been waiting for what seems like 3 years now, could 2023 finally be the year it happens? Leo’s next outing with his pal Marty, what more could you want? Toss in De Niro and Jesse Plemons, and you have yourself one heck of a cast. No trailer, no real new stills, nothing on the marketing campaign yet. This thing is shrouded in mystery. Wasn’t a huge fan of his last movie, and the world just needs a Leo movie every few years to keep us all sane.

Barbie. Director: Greta Gerwig. Release Date: July 21st, 2023

Barbie' teaser trailer turns the world pink and sparkly | CNN

To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you’re a Ken.

We got Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken. Like what else does one need to say about this movie? Like look at that photo, come on now, it’s perfect. All I can say is this, if at some point in this movie, “Barbie Girl” by Aqua doesn’t drop, Greta Gerwig has failed us all. Not really sure what this movie will be about exactly, maybe Margot’s Barbie gets kicked out of Barbie Land or something? Regardless, the cast is stacked beyond belief, an insanely talented director is at the helm, and I feel like this movie will be for everyone. I’m excited for it, because when talented and hard working people come together, that often results in success. This could go down as one of the best looking casts of all time and I just hope this doesn’t fall flat on its face. I want Barbie to be a success so maybe we get the BCU down the line.

Oppenheimer. Director: Christopher Nolan. Release Date: July 21st, 2023

Oppenheimer (2023) - IMDb

The story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb.

Nolan is back! We have one of the biggest movie battles in history going down July 21st. Could be one of the best double feature days in cinemas in recent memory. Greta Gerwig’s Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer are opening on the same day. I’m not sure the world is ready for this. Apparently Nolan build a real atomic bomb and detonated it for this movie, that’s how fucking committed this guy is. Doing something really cool as he always does, it appears that half the movie will be in colour, while the other half (assuming after the atomic bomb goes boom) will be in black in white. Much like it’s opening day counter-part, Oppenheimer has just a cast full of legends. A list too long to name, but few directors get the “event” status when they open a new movie, and Nolan is one of the select few. I expect this to be nothing short of extraordinary.

Air Jordan. Director: Ben Affleck. Release Date: TBD

Matt Damon Ben Affleck Nike Michael Jordan Movie |

Follows the history of shoe salesman Sonny Vaccaro, and how he led Nike in its pursuit of the greatest athlete in the history of sports: Michael Jordan.

The boys are back, the boys are back! The dynamic duo are back together again! Ben Affleck is back directing and Matt Damon is coming along for the ride. A movie about the rise of Nike shoes which involves Michael Jordan? That sounds so incredibly fun and awesome. Honestly, I’ve been waiting a while for these two to properly reunite. They did a little bit during The Last Duel, but this feels more like a homecoming for the pair. I hope this is like a mixture of Moneyball and The Big Short, obviously, I’m not even sure if this will get released this year, it’s suppose to, but nothing from this movie is available. So it’s extremely difficult to get a sense of the tone and vibe of the film. Doesn’t matter, Affleck is nearly perfect when it comes to directing, his only falter was his last outing, a time when he wasn’t in the right state and I have a feeling this is going to be his big comeback to the directors chair. Will forever root for these two, especially when they are working together.

The Super Mario Bros Movie. Director: Aaron Horvath & Michael Jelenic. Release Date: April 7th, 2023

Animated Super Mario movie official trailer: Watch now | SYFY WIRE

The story of The Super Mario Bros. on their journey through the Mushroom Kingdom

I’m not saying this is going to be the biggest movie of 2023, but it has potential to be the biggest movie of 2023. I’ve always considered myself a Luigi guy and getting Charlie Day to voice him is perfect. The only complaint about this movie really is Chris Pratt voicing Mario, but honestly, if it works 70% then the movie will be fine. Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach and Jack Black as Bowser, like are you kidding me? It’s so well done, the trailers have been incredible, the animation is top notch. This just looks like so much fun. Basically watching a video game played out on the big screen. All the little sights and sounds being used (Sonic franchise take note) makes this one of the more appealing video game movies ever made. Just look how happy these two guys are, you can’t tell me you don’t want to watch this. Yoshi is here and Seth Rogan is voicing Donkey Kong, which I’m sure will be some end credit stinger, ultimately setting up another MCU (Mario Cinematic Universe) I can’t wait. Like they are driving in go-carts down Rainbow Road, HOW ARE YOU NOT EXCITED.

Dune Part 2. Director: Dennis Villeneuve. Release Date: November 3rd, 2023.

Dune: Part 2' Wraps Filming, Timothée Chalamet Announces - Variety

A boy becomes the Messiah of nomads on a desert planet that has giant worms that protect a commodity called Spice. Spice changes people into travelers, mystics and madmen. What price will he pay to become the new ruler of their universe?

We cannot fail this movie. Plain and simple. As a society we need to band together to make Dune Part 2 a giant success. I think after Dune, and the great word of mouth and its successful life on streaming, Dune Part 2 has a great chance to no doubt be a bigger financial success. This will incorporate the second half of the novel, where things really pick up and the stakes are bigger, the action is louder and we get to see a ton of cool shit go down. The final 3rd of Dune the novel is tremendous and I can’t wait to see how it plays out on the big screen. Villeneuve does scale better than anyone working today and honestly Dune is one of the best IMAX experiences in the last decade. No doubt in my mind this will be his finest work to date and this movie is going to blow people away. Really excited for the role Dave Batista is going to play in this sequel.

Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1. Director: Christopher McQuarrie. Release Date: July 14th, 2023

Mission: Impossible 7: Tom Cruise's 'Dead Reckoning' Plot, Date, Cast - Variety

We don’t even have a blurb on IMDB yet, that’s how little is known about the upcoming Mission Impossible movie. What we do know is that Tom Cruise jumps off a cliff riding a motorcycle, one of his biggest stunts yet. The man is truly the greatest action star we have, and he’s just on a serious role. So dedicated to his craft and providing us, the audience with the best possible entertainment, it’s hard not to love the guy. This is only part 1, but I’m sure part 2 will serve as the finale to his tenor as Ethan Hunt and this franchise. Arguably one of the most thriller and best movie franchises we have right now, you know this is going to be a banger. Cruise is willing to die for the right shot, to pull off the stunt and he’s probably going to space in the next one. Hard not to be over the moon for this movie. There really isn’t a bad installment in the entire franchise.

Transformers: Rise of The Beasts. Director: Steven Caple Jr. Release Date: June 9th, 2023

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts' Trailer Introduces the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons! - Bloody Disgusting

We got Beast Wars coming to the Transformers universe! Honestly, this movie looks cool as hell. I loved the 90’s Beast Wars cartoon and all your favorites are present in this trailer. It looks like it’s piggybacking off the success of Bumblebee, one of the strongest Transformers films to date. If Hailee Steinfeld is involved in this movie, that’s a big plus for the franchise. Anthony Ramos takes the lead human role this time, and he looks the part. Happy they ventured away from Mark Wahlberg and taken the franchise to new heights. The Transformers have never looked better. These movies are always so big and grand, they just let the humans get in the way, but judging from the last little sneak peak, they are going to war. Epic battles, great designs and honestly some terrific voice acting is going to make this perhaps the best Transformers yet. Lets go to Cybertron!!!

John Wick: Chapter 4. Director: Chad Stahelski. Release Date: March 24th, 2023

John Wick: Chapter 4' Trailer: Keanu Reeves Back On The Attack – Deadline

John Wick uncovers a path to defeating The High Table. But before he can earn his freedom, Wick must face off against a new enemy with powerful alliances across the globe and forces that turn old friends into foes.

Donnie Yen and Bill Skarsgard being added to the list? I’m fairly certain Donnie Yen is playing a badass blind assassin and I’m here for it. The franchise that once again reinvented Keanu Reeves is back for the forth installment and it looks like it could be the final chapter. One of the best action franchises this century, the face paced, hard hitting, close combat flick is once again upping the ante for what is sure to be one of the best movies this year. Each movie gets elevated to new heights and the action is more bold, making John Wick a superhero of sorts. That’s all fine and dandy, I’ve loved how they have expanded the universe and made this feel like a really special franchise. I don’t think they envisioned a four movie run like this before the first one came out. I for one am not ready to see him die or leave.

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse: Director: Kemp Powers, Joaquim Santos & Justin K Thompson. Release Date: June 2nd, 2023.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023) - IMDb

Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar®-winning Spider-Verse saga, an epic adventure that will transport Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man across the Multiverse to join forces with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to face off with a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.

So this is just a juggernaut year for animation. Between this and Mario Bros. I don’t know which one I’m more excited for. My expectations weren’t low for the first Spider-Verse, I just didn’t really have much thought about it. Then I walked out of the theatre thinking it was one of the better animated films I’d ever seen. Now, we are getting the much anticipated sequel, and this movie is HUGE. One of the biggest animated features ever, with over 200 talking characters, which I believe is some sort of record. Spider-Man from all over, anything that’s ever had a Spider-Man in it, is popping up in this movie. This is also only part 1, so you know this will be ending on some sort of massive cliff hanger, that’s going to leave us wanting so much more. Miles Morales in just a fantastically fun character, and I can’t wait to see what they ultimately cooked up for this sequel.

The Flash. Director: Andy Muschietti. Release Date: June 16th, 2023

Ezra Miller's 'The Flash' Movie Gets New Teaser Trailer with a Michael Keaton Voiceover! | Ezra Miller, Michael Keaton, Sasha Calle, The Flash, The Flash (Movie) | Just Jared

DC’s last ditch effort? Do we even need this movie at this point? Is this going to piss off so many fans, yes. Honestly, I’m only putting this on my list because I want to see Ben Affleck back as Batman. Who knows what this movie has in store. Since it started production, star Ezra Miller has been a shit show, the higher ups over at DC films has changed twice, and I feel like this movie won’t even matter in 3 years time. None the less it’s finally coming out this year, and it could be really great. Something unique and hopefully puts a new spin on the speedster tale in the comic book world. I just have a feeling, it could bomb and everyone involved and everyone in this movie will be erased from the DC Universe, and just like that, all the hoop-la around this thing will have been for nothing. Just please don’t be a big pile of shit.

The Iron Claw. Director: Sean Durkin. Release Date: TBD

Zac Efron Bulks Up to the Extreme in A24's 'The Iron Claw' First Look - Variety

Follows the story of the Von Erichs, a dynasty of wrestlers who made a great impact on the sport from the 1960s to the present day.

Wrestling movies can be awesome. A movie about one of the most famous families in the entire industry sounds delightful. Besides, look how insanely jacked Zac Efron looks here. This cast is STACKED, Efron, Holy McCallany, Lily James, Jeremy Allen White (MY BOY) and Harris Dickinson. This is really the only piece of marketing that has hit the web so far. I have no idea if this movie will be terrible, or a masterpiece, but I do know that I love so many of the people involved in this project that it was hard to leave it off the list. The movie will make or break with Efron, has it usually does, but he’s kind of turned a new leaf lately and I’m excited to see what he brings to the table here. Could be one of the hidden gems of 2023.

Bernstein. Director: Bradley Cooper. Release Date: TBD

Bradley Cooper's first look as legendary composer Leonard Bernstein will leave you awestruck - Entertainment News

The complex love of Leonard and Felicia, from the time they met in 1946 at a party and continuing through two engagements, a 25 year marriage, and three children.

Last but not least. Have to shout out Bradley Cooper and this wicked hair style. Besides the last time he wrote and directed a movie, he made me cry each time I watched A Star Is Born. So maybe this love life tale of Leonard Bernstein will be no different. He’s all in for this role, perhaps Oscar hunting, but after you make a movie so powerful, it’s hard not to get excited for what’s next. A great ensemble cast next to him, this is one of the bigger what-if’s of 2023. With the success of Tar, and Cate Blanchet almost a mortal lock for the Oscar this year, can Bradley follow suit as back to back composers to win the gold.


First ‘Transformers: Rise of The Beasts’ Trailer Is Here!

The Autobots are back and this time they are bringing some animal friends with them. The Beast Wars are finally here!

One of my favourite cartoons growing up was none other than Beast Wars. I had all the toys and it was just a cartoon that felt like it wasn’t just for kids. It dealt with mature themes and to this day still holds up as a great piece of the Transformers universe.

Say what you want about these movies, mindless entertainment, feel good-bad movies, classic Hollywood troupes. This franchise has only good things going for it as of late. Bumblebee the latest outing was met with great reviews from critics and fans and this appears to be more of the same. Michael Bay has left the directors chair and this time it’s Steven Caple Jr (Creed II) filling in. Anthony Ramos is taking the reins has the human lead with possible cameos of both Hailee Steinfeld and Marc Wahlberg? Perhaps that’s how they bridge the gap between the franchises. Who knows. All I know is BEAST WARS BABY!

Great first trailer, the song choice elevates it. All the Beast Wars looks stunning and that last snippet we got makes me melt. We just need these sorts of movies every five years to keep us sane as a population. Bring it on.


‘Super Mario Bros’ Trailer is Fire

Mario has been apart of my life for 30 years. This first trailer looks just magical.

I’m not saying it’s about time they made a proper animated Nintendo movie but it’s about damn time. And who better to lead the charge of what will probably be the Nintendo Animated Universe than the best plumber the world has ever known, Mario. Voiced by Chris Pratt, because why not, the movie has plenty of star power (no pun intended). Charlie Day will voice is loveable brother Luigi, while Keegan Michael-Key will voice Toad. Princess Peach will be voiced by Anna Taylor Joy and none other than Jack Black will be voicing the films big baddie Bowser.

Smart of them to show off more of Bowser than Mario and the rest of the gang in the trailer, because he is one of video games greatest villains and I’m super excited to see this great cast go to work. Pratt does drag the trailer down a little bit, I think they could have gone with someone different but he puts butts in seats and this is primed to make the big bucks. This could honestly be one of the most successful animated movies ever if this turns out to be good. Mario one of the most recognizable faces in the world, he is known everywhere.

Such a fantastic kick off trailer and I’m so excited to see more from this going forward. WHO DOESNT LOVE MARIO?!


‘Shazam: Fury of The Gods’ Trailer

The Shazam family is back for what will be a bigger more entertaining sequel.

Growing up is hard for everyone, even when you’re a superhero. Billy Batson is getting older and his alter ego, Shazam are both feeling the pressures of growing older and not knowing where he belongs. With his family and how to be a proper hero.

Comparing himself to the legends of the DC Universe, Shazam is having a tough time deciding what the best use of his powers are. Trying to hold together the Shazam family, as they appear to all be heading in different directions in life, all he wants is to be part of a family. He’s got abandonment issues so it all makes sense.

It’s not until some Gods show up, Hespera (Helen Mirren) and Kalypso (Luci Liu) that Billy realizes it’s up to him to save the world.

This sequel looks like they got more money, so expect a larger movie in terms of scale and scope. More screen time for our heroes and probably twice the laughs.

I’m not entirely sure where the DC universe is heading but as a fan of the first Shazam, I’m excited for the sequel. Zachary Levi does a fantastic job and it would be really cool to see him interact with some of the other DC heroes and most importantly Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.


‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Trailer Hits

What an emotional, stunning teaser trailer that will surely be a movie to remember.

Well SDCC is in full effect, it’s been a day chalk full of news, promos and trailers. Disney and Marvel never disappoint in Hall H and they brought in the big guns tonight dropping the first official look at the sequel to one of the most successful films of all time, Black Panther.

We all know the tragedy that struck this franchise and fandom and everyone who knew and loved Chadwick Boseman. After his passing, it was unclear how the Black Panther franchise would be handled and carried on. Well, judging from this brief trailer, I can confidently say, it’s being handled with the upmost respect, and carefulness as you’d come to expect. Ryan Coogler is not shying away from making this an emotional ride and a tribute to the late great actor.

The trailer is simply stunning, something the MCU has severely been lacking as of late. Hitting some what of a standstill for someone like me, this certainly feels like a breath of fresh air and makes you wonder, why every MCU movie can’t look and feel this way. There is care behind the camera and visually speaking this is one of the better looking MCU trailers I can ever remember.

I’m sure people will be at a loss for words after watching this and there’s a time and place to talk about what happened in the trailer, but right now just sit back and experience what should be one of the strongest Marvel movies to ever grace the big screen.

Kudos to Ryan Coogler and the entire cast. They really pulled it off.


‘Bullet Train’ Trailer

Brad Pitt is on a high speed train confronting all sorts of deadly assassins in a game of cat and mouse. Count me all the way in.

Bullet Train (2022) - IMDb

Sometimes you watch a trailer and realize 30 seconds in that you’ll be there opening weekend. This movie kind of has it all. Star power, stylish action and a premise that certainly never fails in Hollywood. A group of assassins in close quarters fighting amongst one other is always a recipe for success.

Directed by the action heavy David Leitch who is always trying to one up himself with each new movie. He certainly is bringing in a star-studded cast to hunt each other down. Pitt seems perfect for this kind of movie, he’s a complete bad ass but also seems like a sweet heart. I’m going to kill you but I don’t want to do it kind of guy.

This is just a small taste of whats to come for Bullet Train, guns, fists and swords? It’s just going to be straight up cool, a unique movie in it’s own right. It shoots up the list of my most anticipated that’s for sure.

Miss seeing Brad Pitt in movies and the fact we will see him like never before is the only excuse I need to go see this movie.


‘Nope’ Trailer Hits

We are all the same page right? Nope means, Not. Of. Planet. Earth.


There are directors, and then there are film-makers. That craft things that entice and unite movie fans around the globe. Jordan Peele is one of those selected few now. He brought the world to its knees with Get Out, and promised us that he was just getting started. Now he’s telling an alien story? This is one of the better teaser trailers or recent memory. Can always count on him to blend comedy and horror with a little remixed hip-hop music in the background.

Without a doubt, this has the best ending shot from a trailer in recent memory. Keke Palmer getting sucked into the sky, but it some how just feels terrifying. Peele is also reuniting with Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya and this appears to be his most ambitious film yet. Steven Yeun is also joining the ranks, and he seems to be playing the ring leader at some crazy tourist attraction, which I’ll talk about in a few seconds.

You know nothing is ever as it seems with Peele and his movies, but from the look of things, either aliens are on earth living among us, and they have been turned into somewhat of a tourist attraction kind of thing. Think a circus but with alien lifeforms and their kind is coming to earth for either revenge or to bring their babies home. You can catch glimpses of weird things and people throughout the trailer, and maybe it’s them who’s opening this gigantic portal in the sky. That’s just my guess, and seeing how this is a Jordan Peele flick, I’m going to be way off, but that’s the feeling I’m getting from the first few watches of the trailer.

What a summer event this is going to be.


First Trailer For ‘Halo’ TV Series Hits

Move over Mandalorian there’s a new Chief in town.

Halo' TV series heads to Paramount+ on March 24th | Engadget

Okay, if you told someone a TV Series based on the widely popular video game series Halo was to come out. You wouldn’t ask for Master Chief to look much better than that. It’s a spitting mirror image of the iconic suit that has been in our lives for almost 20 years now.

This show feels very Mandalorian if you ask me. The quality of the show looks great, nothing cheap about it. From the little we saw, you couldn’t really ask for much else with footage that we got. Having never played a single Halo game, I’m not sure what this show will explore. The origins of Master Chief? Will it be based off the actual story lines of the first game? I’m not really sure. What I do know, is that this appears to be an interesting science fiction television series that promises action as well as intrigue.

He’s one of the coolest video game characters in recent memory, and played by the great Pablo Schreiber, and when I said it feels very Mandalorian, because even though they got this great actor to be behind the helmet, I don’t think we will actually get to see his face in the show. It’s just the vibe I’m getting and I think that’s a great concept.

The show is dropping soon, and let’s see how it goes. This could be a steaming pile of garbage. The track record for movies and television shows based off video games is not great. But this could be the start of a new trend. With The Last of Us dropping layer this year, 2022 could serve as the launching pad for a wave of great properties based off video games. I have faith!


My Most Anticipated Movies of 2022

If anything, 2022 promises to be one of the biggest years in the history of cinema. It’s primed to have arguably the biggest box-office year ever with some gigantic films on the horizon. So I’m running through the films that I can not wait to see this year.

2022 Movies: The 58 Biggest Movies We Can't Wait to See - IGN

We are going in chronological order here. Any movie that I didn’t do a little trailer post for I will attach the trailer with it! Over twenty movies on this list, so strap in, going to be one hell of a year!

Scream. Release Date: January 14th, 2022. Director: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillet.

Everything We Know About SCREAM (2022) - NerdistTwenty-five years after the original series of murders in Woodsboro, a new killer emerges, and Sidney Prescott must return to uncover the truth.

Any time Ghostface shows up on screen you can count me in. One of the best horror movie franchises returns this year and it’s shaping up to be the best sequel yet. From the trailers, this just feels like it’s heading back to its roots and very less meta. “It’s always someone you know.” That’s the tagline for the upcoming flick and fans and even the cast alike are wondering just who on earth is behind that mask? It could be anyone and there are all sorts of theories floating around, but I think it will be some of the new blood rather than one of the OG’s returning. A great way to kick off 2022, because Scream truly promises to be one of the best slashers in recent memory.

Morbius. Release Date: January 28th, 2022. Director: Daniel Espinosa.Morbius has 'some form of bat radar' in the first trailer in two years - The VergeBiochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.

2022 has an insane amount of comic book movies and I’m here for every single one. Okay, this might end up being the weakest of the bunch, but I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve seen so far from Morbius. One of the main reasons I’m excited and I’m sure others are, the fact that this is going to belong to some sort of shared universe. Whether he confronts Tom Hollands Spider-Man or perhaps Andrew Garfield, it’s complicated but I’m sure this movie will have one hell of a stinger at the end of the credits. Maybe Venom shows up? Who knows but that excitement is just enough to have me seeing Morbius opening weekend and why it’s on this list.

The Batman. Release Date: March 4th, 2022. Director: Matt Reeves.

In his second year of fighting crime, Batman uncovers corruption in Gotham City that connects to his own family while facing a serial killer known as the Riddler.

The Batman the granddaddy of them all. The best movie of 2022 is approaching fast. Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson the unlikely duo are about to deliver one of the best comic book movies of all time. Who would have guessed that, if you asked someone 5-6 years ago, someone would have laughed in your face. But here we are, a few short months away from the release and every single thing we have seen from this movie has been nothing short of amazing. From the tone, to the aesthetics of Gotham City, to the brilliant performances from both Pattison and Kravitz. This is my most anticipated movie in perhaps forever, I simply can not wait to watch this movie about 6 times in the first few days of its release. Masterpiece incoming folks.

Pixar’s Turning Red. Release Date: March 11th, 2022. Director: Domee Shi

Turning Red (2022) - IMDb

A 13-year-old girl named Mei Lee turns into a giant red panda whenever she gets too excited.

I’m not lying when I say that this movie has had some of the best trailers of the past year. This looks so cute and hilarious and well it takes place in my neighbourhood of Toronto. The whole premise is so funny and the animation is so stylish and awesome to look at. With some amazing voice casting work and beautiful animation, Pixar has once again got my interested in a movie. A unique premise and you can’t help but smile every time you see a photo of this giant red panda.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Release Date: April 8th, 2022. Director: Jeff Fowler.

Is Knuckles a Bad Guy in 'Sonic the Hedgehog 2'? Here's What We Know

Sequel to the 2020 live-action feature film ‘Sonic the Hedgehog

Sequels are always bigger, bolder and always up the ante. The first Sonic movie didn’t get off to the greatest of starts, but ever since the course correction of the actual look and design of Sonic, things have been going great. Now the sequel is upon us and they are introducing us to his pals. We get both Tails and Knuckles, voiced by none other than Idris Elba, like come on, we are all sold. The design for Knuckles is also incredible and this looks like so much fun. There is so much they can do in with this franchise and bringing in these two iconic and loveable characters is a fantastic start.

Ambulance. Release Date. April 8th, 2022. Director: Michael Bay.

Ambulance (2022) - IMDb

Two robbers steal an ambulance after their heist goes awry.

Michael Bay is back! So we know we are getting over the top explosions, performances and plot lines? Michael Bay is like that awful friend you have in your life that you have no idea why you hang out with them but every single time you do, you end up having an amazing time. Now we are tossing in Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Manteen and Eiza Gonzalez into the mix? I know Bay isn’t for everyone, but I certainly love to sit down and turn off my brain and enjoy his movies. I don’t know how he convinces some of the best working talent in Hollywood today to be in his movies, but here we are. This promises to be over the top, cheesy but in all the best ways imaginable. Definition of “Good times at the movies.”

The Northman. Release Date: April 22nd, 2022. Director: Robert Eggers.

The Northman Movie trailer |Teaser Trailer

From acclaimed director Robert Eggers, The Northman is an epic revenge thriller that explores how far a Viking prince will go to seek justice for his murdered father.

This just looks like pure cinema. The follow-up to The Lighthouse, which was one of my favourite movies a few years ago, Robert Eggers is one of the best new film-makers we have today. The scenery, the landscapes, the look and feel of this movie, screams EPIC. Not a single green screen in sight and this is just movie making at its finest. The Northman looks torturous and brutal, the combat looks barbaric and everyone involved is giving it their all. We have directors who can make fine blockbusters, you know a CGI-fest, but there is something about Eggers that lets you know, that true movie making is never going away. The Northman will be special.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Release Date: May 6th, 2022.

: Sam Raimi.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' Teaser Trailer Shows Evil Benedict Cumberbatch

Dr. Stephen Strange casts a forbidden spell that opens the door to the multiverse, including an alternate version of himself, whose threat to humanity is too great for the combined forces of Strange, Wong, and Wanda Maximoff.

Doctor Strange really screwed the pooch when he cast that spell for Peter Parker. The whole universe and multi-verse is all messed up because of that kid and now Strange needs to fix it before everything he knows goes to shit. With a bunch of reshoots and rewrites of the script, no one knows what or who to expect in this. Seeing Tobey and Andrew come back was so emotional and rewarding that I’m sure the MCU wants to cash in on that even more. I’m not saying they will be back for this movie, but some others may pop up who knows. I think this is going to be the true launching pad for Phase 4 of the MCU with the stakes the highest they have ever been and will cement Dr. Strange as the key focal point in the MCU going forward. He could very well be the new leader of the Avengers after this. What I love most about this flick? The OG Sam Raimi of the original Spider-Man trilogy is back. He’s a master of horror as well, so I expect this to be scary and a little suspenseful at times. Don’t forget he has a certain and strong connection with a certain someone……

Top Gun: Maverick. Release Date: May 27th, 2022. Director: Joseph Kosinski.Top Gun: Maverick (2022) - IMDbAfter more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.

FINALLY!!! This movie was suppose to come ago what feels like ages ago. This is the year we get to see Tom Cruise back as Maverick and what a strong young cast he is bringing along with him. Top Gun holds a special place in my heart, it’s a great male bonding movie and just an all around unorthodox action movie. Who knows how they will up the ante for the sequel, but I expect some more shirtless Volleyball and karaoke in the bar. We have had to wait what seems like forever, so I hope this doesn’t fall flat on its face, but from what we have seen so far, this seems like a worthy sequel.

Pixar’s Lightyear. Release Date: June 17th, 2022. Director: Angus MacLane.Pixar releases 'Lightyear' teaser trailer, and Chris Evans is over the moon about it - The Boston GlobeThe story of Buzz Lightyear and his adventures to infinity and beyond.

What people need to know, this isn’t about the toy Buzz Lightyear. This is about the man who the toy was based on! This could very well be the biggest movie of the year. Everyone in the world knows who Buzz Lightyear is and attach Chris Evans to voice him? That’s a recipe for success if you ask me. This is giving me First Man vibes, the Ryan Gosling movie that was released a few years ago, and Pixar is always creating emotional journeys and I’m sure this won’t be any different. The animation is a little more mature here, which I like, because this does give off the sense of a more mature animated film from Pixar. We are going to get the backstory to this beloved character and what made him so special they decided to make a toy based off him. We could very well have just an all time year from Pixar in 2022.

The Black Phone. Release Date: June 24th, 2022. Director: Scott Derrickson.

The Black Phone Poster Introduces a Terrifying Ethan Hawke

After being abducted by a child killer and locked in a soundproof basement, a 13-year-old boy starts receiving calls on a disconnected phone from the killer’s previous victims.

All you needed to show me for this movie is that image above. That’s Ethan Hawke rocking one of the coolest masks I’ve ever seen. One of the best actors playing an absolute psycho path serial killer? We don’t get that very often, so of course I’m excited. Horror movies are a dime a dozen, so when one comes along that truly catches your eye and looks unique and just not your typical hack and slash, I will be invested. The premise seems trippy to say the least, with all sorts of those classic horror elements at play. I’m here for Ethan Hawke, and it looks like he won’t disappoint.

Thor: Love & Thunder. Release Date: July 8th, 2022. Director: Taika Waititi

Thor 4 Merch Reveals Stylish New Love and Thunder Logo for Chris Hemsworth's SequelThe sequel to Thor: Ragnarok and the fourth movie in the Thor saga

This movie is going to pack a serious punch. Going forward, the MCU is going to feel like a mini party with each new outing. It’s just not a solo film anymore. Each movie is going to be like an Avengers Mini. This is a Thor movie, but the Guardians are going to be involved and they are bringing in the big guns, Christian Bale will be playing the films villain, Gorr The God Butcher. Even Natalie Portman is back and this time she’s going to be wielding the hammer and will eventually become the new God of Thunder. Thor Ragnarok is one of the best all around MCU movies, with what seems like the perfect blend of humour and action. They have found the ideal foundation for the character and surrounding Thor with more heroes and a bigger story has only upped his story arc. Crazy we haven’t gotten anything for this movie yet, not even a poster. Could this be the end of Chris Hemsworth’s run as the God of Thunder? Time will tell, but I certainly hope not. He’s one of the strongest parts of the MCU and with Natalie Portman coming back that only adds fuel to his fire, and makes his progression as a character even more intriguing.

Bullet Train. Release Date: July 15th, 2022. Director: David Leitch.

Bullet Train: Release Date for Brad Pitt Film Delayed Until Next SummerFive assassins aboard a fast moving bullet train find out their missions have something in common.

Bullet Train is about to be bonkers. From the man that reinvented the action genre in some sense with John Wick, Atomic Blonde and Deadpool. We now get a star-studded movie about assassins on a train that I’m sure will feature close quarters bat-shit crazy action sequences. Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Zazie Beetz and Michael Shannon, among so many others. This is the kind of movie that flies under the radar until that first trailer drops and it blows everyone away. There’s so much goodness, it seems like there’s something for everyone. The vast cast of characters, the director who knows how to shoot action and a premise that makes you drool upon reading it. This legit could have the best/coolest sequence of any movie this upcoming year – minus The Batman obviously.

Nope. Release Date: July 22nd, 2022. Director: Jordan Peele

Nope | Official Movie Site | July 22, 2022

Nobody and I mean nobody got us more excited to see white folks get killed than Jordan Peele. I can’t even put the plot blurb from IMDB above this paragraph because no one and I mean no one knows a single thing about this movie. Except that it stars the 3 people on the poster above. When Peele followed up Get Out with US the world was waiting for the news of his next project. Well, this is the year. More than likely it will be another psychological horror that will push the boundaries on the genre and Peele will once again try to reinvent this genre in some way shape or form. Can’t really say much, other than how can you not be pumped for another movie from Peele?

Black Adam. Release Date: July 29th, 2022. Director: Jaume Collet-Serra.

Black Adam Opening Scene Teased at DC FanDome by Dwayne Johnson | Entertainment NewsA spin-off from ‘Shazam!’ centering on the film’s anti-hero, Black Adam.

We heard it for years and years. That ‘the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe was about to change.” Dwayne Johnson has been saying it for what feels like a decade. Well, this year we will finally see his Black Adam in action. From the quick glimpse we got of this movie, it does seem it fits more of Zack Synder’s DC Universe than what we currently have been getting. That’s a good thing, because Black Adam is a darker character and I’m happy they are going that route. So much is at stake with this because if it’s successful I see Black Adam popping up in the Shazam sequel the following year, they would be stupid not to do that. But the bigger question will be, who will be Superman when they ultimately throw down? Not even DJ knows, which at this point is mind blowing, I have a good feeling about this movie.

Mission Impossible 7. Release Date: September 30th, 2022. Director: Christopher McQuarrie

The one franchise that some how keeps getting better. It’s like a fine wine, the older it gets the better it tastes. Coming off arguably the best in the entire series, M.I 7, code name still not known, will certainly have big shoes to fill. We know very little, but what we do know is that this franchise is going all the way back to the beginning, to its roots. None other than Henry Czerny who played  Eugene Kittridge in the original Mission Impossible is returning. That leaves a lot of doors to be opened and Ethan Hunt could be confronting something from his past that he certainly is not ready to handle. Cruise has a massive year ahead of himself and I can’t wait to see the just bat-shit crazy stunts he performs in his movies.

Spider-Man Across The Spider-Verse Part 1. Release Date: October 7th, 2022. Director: Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers & Justin K. Thompson

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse' First Trailer: Sony Reveals Part One of Animated SequelMiles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar®-winning Spider-Verse saga, an epic adventure that will transport Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man across the Multiverse to join forces with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to face off with a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.

Animation is not messing around in 2022. In fact it’s going to have some of the biggest and best movies of the entire year. This will be no exception. The follow-up to the ever growing in popularity of Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse, a movie that is so good, I can’t even fathom how they plan on topping it. What I do know, they will top it and this promises to truly be something unique, special and full of so much heart. Miles is a bit older, so I expect the maturity level of just not the characters but the material at hand to be upped a bit. Which I’m really looking forward to, the relationship between Miles and Gwen should feel a little more mature this time around. Recruiting even more star power to voice Spider-People, including Oscar Isaac, we have no idea just what is in store for our hero Miles. It could literally be anything, the realm of possibilities is actually endless and that’s what makes this movie so appealing and intriguing to audiences. You don’t know who is going to show up, it could be anyone and the emotional baggage that comes along with this movie is palpable. This is just Part 1 as well, so you know it’s finishing with an all time cliff hanger. I hope we get a really cool animated Venom or Carnage, that’s all I’m saying.

The Flash. Release Date: November 4th, 2022. Director: Andy Muschietti

The Flash' trailer: Ezra Miller teases the multiverse epic we've been waiting for

The Flash is without a doubt one of the bigger stories being told this year. There is a lot on the line for the future of the DCEU with its release. Some are saying it could erase everything Zack Snyder has built, I highly doubt that. Is this the last time we will see Ben Affleck suit up as Batman? We get the return of Michael Keaton. We all know how much nostalgia can bring people together and sell movie tickets. The Flash is a complex character that is bringing a lot to the table for his first ever solo movie. Adding in Sasha Calle as Supergirl and who knows what else, this movie promises to be bold and unpredictable. This could be a game changer for the DCEU and without a doubt the biggest movie to date for the franchise. I love the character and I’m really curious to see where Muschietti takes it. Coming off the IT movies, he proved he can do large ensembles but he lacks certain qualities to make an all around great blockbuster. Fans are certainly divided and only time will tell. WB needs a big box-office year from their movies and this needs to hit home and be a success or the future of the DCEU could go down in flames as we know it.

Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever. Release Date: November 11th, 2022. Director: Ryan CooglerBlack Panther 2 Receives Promising Letitia Wright Update

The most difficult 2022 movie to talk about. For multiple reasons. First and foremost the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman and the void that is felt with not only this character of Black Panther, but within the MCU. I think as things ramp up with marketing and promotion the weight of his absence will be felt so tremendously. Secondly, the movie itself has had its fair share of problems. Leititia Wright who plays Shuri who is the person who will most likely be filling in for Chadwick has been causing all sorts of problems on set due to vaccination problems. She is anti-vax and has been causing delays and even making the production to be switch to new locations. Not much is known about the plot or how they will handle the death of Chadwick, but I’m sure it will be handled with grace and care. The first one was revolutionary and I can’t wait to see what Coogler has in store for us next.

I want them to kick Wright to the curb and bring in Michael B Jordan.

Creed III. Release Date: November 23rd, 2022. Director: Michael B Jordan

Creed 3: Release Date, Story Details & News | Screen Rant

I’m not saying right now this is my most anticipated, but after The Batman comes out, I will need to latch onto another movie. I’m thinking it’s going to be Creed III. We have Michael B Jordan stepping into the directors chair, telling us another Adonis story. This time without Sly Stallone because he is officially stepping away from this franchise. Can you believe it? The torch has finally been passed and all eyes will be on MBJ when this movie is released. We all know he will make a great director, he’s been in the industry for so long and has worked with some of the most talented people in the business. Creed I and Creed II were both home runs and it feels like its been FOREVER since we got any Creed news. The only news we have gotten is a dozy, Jonathan Majors who is having himself a year or two is joining the Creed world. Probably playing the films villain, and we are all dying to know who is he. Maybe Clubber Lang has a son………….

Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom. Release Date: December 16th, 2022. Director: James WanAquaman 2: Next DC Film Casts New Villains - IGN

Aquaman is kind of a big deal now eh? Coming off a billion dollar first outing, the King of the Sea is back in action this year and James Wan promises more fun, bigger action, and wants to change the game once again. I can see this movie moving to 2023 because of a movie that I will be doing next, either one of them will move its release date, and it could just come down to a game of chicken. Remember how beautifully bonkers the 3rd act of Aquaman was? I expect nothing short of that this time around, and I feel like everyone involved as only grown as actors since and this will be such a wild ride. Again, we just don’t know what kind of state the DCEU will be in at this time. Does this movie course correct once again, or will they treat this very successful franchise as its own thing? All I know is Jason Momoa was born to play Aquaman and I can’t wait to see what James Wan cooks up next.

Avatar 2. Release Date: December 16th, 2022. Director: James Cameron.Avatar 2 (2022) - IMDb

Jake Sully lives with his newfound family formed on the planet of Pandora. Once a familiar threat returns to finish what was previously started, Jake must work with Neytiri and the army of the Na’vi race to protect their planet.

When you share a release date with James Cameron you move your fucking movie. It’s plain and simple. The man made a movie about a boat and it was the biggest thing this world had ever seen at the time. You can hear it now, people stating how they don’t care about the next Avatar, but sure enough everyone and their Mom will go see this movie. It’s James Cameron, the man is a legend and when he makes a movie, it’s just not a release date, it’s an event. Say what you want about Avatar, but it changed how we viewed movies and what could be done in a technological sense. He’s been working on these next few movies for over a decade, you don’t think this is going to shatter all expectations and blow our minds? Again, it’s James FUCKING Cameron, get on board folks! I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us and what this movie can be. It could literally change how we view movies once again, my god this year is going to be epic.

Looks like I’ll be breaking my record of 62 trips to the movies this year. Giddy up!
