2020 is going to be a huge year for the entertainment industry! Music, fashion, TV, and of course, movies! The new year hasn’t even really started yet and we’ve already got an all-star line up of movies that are going to make the next year so memorable!
The Year Of Bad-Ass Women
They said: “Superhero movies but make it bad-ass women.”
Next year it seems we’re getting the dose of Femme Fatal that we crave because our favorite women are back and ready to kick some ass. The first movie to come out of this gorgeous tri-Fecta is Birds Of Prey on February 7th.
Birds Of Prey: And The Fabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn is set to follow Harley Quinn after her break-up with the Joker, which is where the subtitle comes from. This movie has been getting mixed reviews due to the Harley Quinn studded trailers but either way… We’ll be there for the first screening.
March 27th we get one of the most anticipated Disney live action movies, Mulan. Sure there’s no musical number, Shang, or Mushu. But we get to see a kick-ass woman bring honor to her family. We have high hopes.
Black Widow is next to come out on May 1st, and I think it’s safe to say that this is the movie we’ve been waiting for almost 10 years now. If anyone deserves their own stand alone-movie, it’s Natasha Romanoff. Marvel just wanted to twist the knife one more time. Oh and David Harbour is in it.
Wonder Woman 1984 comes out June 9th and we’re ready to see Gal Gadot in her element. She plays Diana with such elegant, poise, and edge, we cannot wait to see what else she brings. And her together with Chris Pine… *Chef’s Kiss*
Next year we’re getting our spooks in because we’re getting movie after movie. Starting January 3rd with The Grudge.
The Grudge that is set to release is a reboot of the original movies. It stars Harold and Kumar‘s, John Cho. However, this movie will be far from funny. As we can see from the trailer and poster it will feature the iconic shower scene… Which is unsettling enough.
Next, we have The Turning, which comes out January 24th. This movie is a modern take on the book and movie The Turning of The Screw. It stars our generations‘ price of darkness, Finn Wolfhard, along with Mackenzie Davis.
A Quiet Place 2 comes out March 20th, and we’re already holding in our screams. The first movie was a surprise box office smash, so naturally a second one had to be made.
Alas, Halloween Kills is set to release this year. It serves as a direct sequel to the 2018 Halloween movie. Of course, starring queen Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie as she yet again, battles Michael. This time around she gives no fear and is ready to protect her family at all costs. We stan.
There are so many family flicks coming to the big screen next year so get the kiddo’s ready!
RDJ is back in theaters January 17th but this time as Dr. Dolittle. Dolittle takes place in 19th-century England (so he has an accent), having Dolittle and his creature friends on a mission to get a cure for a sickness that the Queen has.
Sonic The Hedgehog is a movie that’s centered around quite the controversy. After being pushed back due to fan backlash to the original design, it’s back and ready for release on Valentines day. Though the new design is 1000% better, people are still hesitant. If you need a reason to go see it, here’s one: Jim Carrey.
Next for release is SCOOB!, which seems to be a quite animation of how Shaggy and Scooby became best friends to them being abducted by aliens. This looks like the cute family film it’s meant to be. We just have one small complaint, and that’s Matthew Lillard isn’t the voice of Shaggy… But we’ll still be there!
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the next installment in the OG Ghostbusters saga. Featuring (no surprise here) Finn Wolfhard, the amazing Paul Rudd, and up-and-coming star McKenna Grace. July 11th we’ll see Finn and McKenna vs Ghosts. Sign us up!
Action / Adventure
2020 is going to be action packed!
To start the year off right, we get a ‘sequel’ we’ve been waiting for, Bad Boys For Life. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have the ultimate comedic duo chemistry, which is why the first two films did so well. We’re ready for them to come back better and funnier than ever.
The Gentleman which comes out the 24th of January, features a star-studded cast. Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Jackman, Collin Ferrel, Henry Golding, Hugh Grant, and Charlie Hunnam. It’s the British vs Oklahoma of all places.
No Time To Die is the end of a brilliant saga. This is Daniel Craig‘s last go as 007 himself, James Bond. After 15 years, this James Bond story will be over. There’s already talks about the next 007, but let’s get through this hard break up in April first.
Godzilla VS Kong, another fun action-packed battle between 2 giant-sized monsters! Starring Millie Bobby Brown and Alexander Skarsgård, this film will crush it.
As you can tell from the beginning, this is another year for comics!
Morbius is personally one of our highest anticipated films. Jared Leto as a vampire… Yes, please. July 31st cannot come fast enough. All we can think is what if we get both Toms and Jared in one movie together… Wow… Magic.
Even though there are no details yet, according to IMDB the sequel to Venom is set to come out October 2nd! No plot or casting is confirmed yet, but we’re ready and waiting!
The Eternals. When Disney announced this during D23, it’s safe to say that the internet went crazy. With an all-star cast and highly anticipated characters coming to life… November 6th cannot come fast enough.
What’s a year without laughter! There’s some new movies coming our way and sequels to legendary movies that we’re not ready for.
April 24th Bad Trip hits theaters! This is basically Eric Andre‘s take on the Jackass movies… But not as intense… Unsuspecting public + pranks + hidden cameras can never go wrong.
Free Guy comes out July 3rd and honestly, just by the trailer we can tell we’ll see this movie like 3 times. This movie looks like a live-action GTA game mixed with Tron and Deadpool. That sounds pretty amazing ngl.
Coming to America, Eddie Murphy is back and we’re living. After his hosting gig at SNL and seeing Dolemite Is My Name, we are more than ready for this comeback August 7th!
On August 21st they’re back and more excellent than ever! Bill & Ted Face The Music is the movie we’ve been waiting 29 years for! The last Bill & Ted movie came out in 1991… So it’s safe to say we’re due for some more Keanu.
Which movies are you most excited for in 2020!? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter!
