New movies are always something to get excited about, but especially after so many delays in 2020 the new year holds a plethora of new movies for fans around the world to get pumped for. In fact there are so many big movies set to release this year that it’s hard to decide what to be the most excited about, so I made a list. Here’s 10 new movies releasing in 2021 to get ready for…
No Time to Die (October 8th)
The newest release in the Bond series was actually set to come out in April however was postponed to October due to Covid-19 disruptions. The movie is still coming out in 2021 though and even after everyone thought Daniel Craig may have been finished in his most famous role he will return to the screens once again for ‘No Time to Die’.
The King’s Man (Expected August)
Going back in time to the origins of the independent intelligence agency ‘The King’s Man’ was hit hard by pandemic pushbacks, but it would be fair to say that even if not in August the film should hit the screens at some point in 2021.
Black Widow (April 29th)
Scarlett Johansson will return to the big screen once again as Black Widow in the standalone piece which as of right now is set to come out on April 29th. Marvel fans have a lot to look forward to in the upcoming release of ‘Black Widow’ and after a promising and well received trailer no doubt this will be a hit at the box office.
Cherry (February 26th)
‘Cherry’ is one of those films that I just can’t help but be excited for, a Russo brothers film starring Tom Holland in a role that really puts him outside his comfort zone is something that could either be top notch or highly underwhelming and given what we know about the movie thus far it shows some serious promise. Set to release on February 26th hopefully ‘Cherry’ can pull a top performance from Tom Holland to please fans around the world.
Godzilla vs. Kong (March 25th)
Yes ladies and gentlemen, Gozilla vs. Kong. Whoever came up with this idea is nothing short of a genius because it almost sounds too good to be true. Set to release on March 25th the battle of the titans that is ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ is not going to provoke anything meaningful but good lord it is set to be one hell of a ride.
Free Guy (May 21st)
I feel like I’ve known about this movie for so long yet ‘Free Guy’ isn’t set for release until May 21st of this year. Based of the story of a bank teller (Ryan Reynolds) becoming self-aware that he is a background character in a video game the blockbuster (although nothing groundbreaking) looks promising and Reynolds rarely does a bad job in these types of roles.
Top Gun: Maverick (July 1st)
Supposed to hit the screens back in December of 2020 ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ was pushed back to July 1st but will no doubt be one of the bigger releases of the year and with a big budget of 152 Million USD along with Tom Cruise returning to the Top Gun sequel, fans should be excited to see him return to the role after more than three decades.
Dune (October 1st)
Based off the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert ‘Dune’ is another big budget film coming out as of right now on October 1st. There are plenty of reasons to be concerned for this film especially considering the fact that it has actually been tried and failed before in the form of a 1984 Dune movie, however there are also plenty of reasons to be excited too. With an on the rise Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Jason Mamoa, Oscar Isaac and Rebecca Ferguson all in lead roles backed by a big budget ‘Dune’ certainly looks to be promising.
Spider Man Sequel (December 17th)
Marvel have confirmed that there is to be a new spider man movie releasing in 2021 and although untitled as of right now (To the public that is) the movie has a release date of December 17th. Perhaps the most exciting thing about this sequel is the fact that there has been confirmation of a return of both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in some way shape or form, news that only makes the new Spider Man even more anticipating though it won’t come until the end of the year.
The Father (April 1st)
‘The Father’ is maybe one of the smaller movies on this list but following the story of a defiant yet aging father whom begins to question the fabric of his own existence in an attempt to make sense of his changing scenery is just destined to be a hit amongst many who decide watch it. With a release date set on April 1st I won’t have any hesitation in going to see this one the first chance I get.
2021 is shaping up to be e big year for the industry, let me know if there are any other movies you’re excited for down in the comments below!
