2020 is here and with the dawn of a new decade promises an amazing new batch of films to be excited about.
Check out of five most anticipated films of the new year below:
When it comes to filmmaking gods they don’t get more worshiped than the great Christopher Nolan and now this incredible cinematic force is ready to put his focus on an magnificent new feat of filmmaking in Tenet. Described as an ‘espionage thriller with a twist’, Tenet stunned audiences with its revolutionary first trailer which paired innovative ideas with breathtaking cinematography, a thumping score and a very intriguing performance from lead star John David Washington. Packed to the brim with innovative ideas and a narrative seen through the lens of spy film thrills while it explores themes including time travel and evolution, Tenet will seriously spin its audience for a loop.
Tenet will arrive in cinemas on July 16, 2020.
4. The Eternals
Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe lies ahead of us following the culmination of the Infinity Saga with Avengers: Endgame, and while I’m well pumped for some action packed spy thrills with Black Widow, it’s the cosmic set ensemble promise of The Eternals that has hooked my attention for 2020. When it comes to the MCU I’ve always found myself most attracted to its cosmic tales and this new film is really going to take audiences on a ride. Director Chloé Zhao is packing this one full of classic Jack Kirby pop and with an ensemble cast including the likes of Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Don Lee, Angelina Jolie, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, and Kumail Nanjiani you can expect a rush with this one. I can’t wait to take a trip to the very edge of the MCU with The Eternals, and I’m certain that this is really going to shake up the MCU as we know it.
The Eternals will arrive in cinemas on November 5, 2020.
3. Top Gun: Maverick
When you’re curating a list of the coolest movies of all time Top Gun fly’s high and now 34 years later, Tom Cruise is ready to step back into the danger zone with Top Gun: Maverick. High speed and some of the most amazing feats of aerial footage ever captured await here in Top Gun: Maverick. That quintessential masculine 1980s swagger that was an integral part to the success of Top Gun back in 1986 is once again captured here with Top Gun: Maverick and that bravado flair is now amped up to an even greater degree thanks to the film’s stunning visuals (seen in its latest action packed trailer), the promise of a highly competitive storyline and some brand new characters with a lot of history behind them. Audiences are in for an aggressive rush when Top Gun: Maverick, and will once again be taken back into the soaring heights of the skies, so buckle up and wrap on those aviators.
Top Gun: Maverick will arrive in cinemas on June 25, 2020.
2. No Time To Die
The name’s Bond. James Bond. And now Daniel Craig is ready to walk back into the gun barrel as he gives his final performance as the world’s greatest debonair secret agent with No Time To Die, which looks like awesome action-packed ride. Its first trailer got me amped and director Cary Joji Fukunaga appears to have captured the essence of what we’ve come to expect from a Bond film with great characters, exotic locations, beautiful women and breathtaking action scenes. Starring Craig, who once again is fully committed as secret agent 007, we’ll also see him going head to head against Rami Malek’s mysterious and vindictive uber villain Safin and this one is going to be a real mano-o-mano battle. Get ready to pull on that tux, sip a martini and enjoy the spectacle of No Time To Die because this one is going to be a blast!
No Time To Die will arrive in cinemas on April 9, 2020.
But when it comes down to our most anticipated film of 2020 it is undoubtedly the big-screen blockbuster adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fiction masterwork Dune and the visionary direction of filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. Often regarded as the greatest piece of science fiction ever written Dune is an incredible piece of literature and its setting, characters, ideas and style have long conjured amazing images in the theater of the mind. Now Villeneuve is ready to bring his considerable skill to play in realising this grand film and with a cast including Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem this one is sure to be an incredible watch. While we are yet to see any official images or trailer materials from Dune, the promise of this story, its director and cast and just the idea of what waits ahead is what has me fired up for this film and I’m very excited to see it up there on the big screen.
Dune will arrive in cinemas on December 18, 2020.
