The King’s Man (February 12, 2021)
The popular British-American film franchise will release its third installment next year in February starring Harris Dickinson, Ralph Fiennes, and Matthew Goode. Set in the 1900s, this prequel will introduce the viewers to the origins of the formation of the spy agency guise as Kingsman tailors.
Antlers (February 19, 2021)
The supernatural thriller created a buzz last year when it released its official trailer starring Kerri Russel (teacher) and Jesse Plemons (police officer) as siblings from a small Oregon town who are convinced that a young student from Kerri’s class is fostering a terrifying creature in his attic. Scott Cooper’s horror-thriller is an adaptation of “The Quiet Boy”, a short story by Nick Antosca.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife (March 5, 2021)
The sequel to the superhit ‘Ghostbusters’ franchise was supposed to release in 2020 but got postponed for 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak. The ‘Afterlife’ edition is totally unrelated to the all-female prequel that released in 2016. The Jaison Reitman directed comedy film revolves around a family of three that moves to Summerville, Oklahoma, and discovers their family’s connection to the legacy of original Ghostbusters dating back to 1984.
Morbius (March 18, 2021)
Jared Leto may have failed to impress the audience with his portrayal of Joker in 2016 but his new look from the horror-fantasy ‘Morbius’ got him a fair share of praise. Leto plays a biochemist who suffers from a rare blood disease and accidentally turns himself into a vampire in quest of finding a cure for his abnormal condition.
No Time to Die (April 2, 2021)
Cary Fukunaga directed ‘No Time to Die’ is the 25th James Bond film that will hit the theatres next year in April. Daniel Craig will be back in action as James Bond for the fifth time and presumably his last. Lea Seydoux plays Bond’s love interest Dr. Swann while Rami Malek portrays a terrorist leader named Safin.
A Quiet Place Part 2 (April 23, 2021)
When Rolling Stone reviewed the first part as a horror classic that will fry your nerves to a frazzle, we knew fans would love to see a sequel to the blockbuster hit from 2018. The second part stars real-life couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski who struggle to survive with their three kids in a world occupied by monsters with super-sensitive hearing.
Black Widow (May 7, 2021)
Marvel studios prequel starring Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff aka the Black Widow will revolve around how she confronts the darker forces that tie her history of serving as a S.H.I.E.L.D agent to her present.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (June 4, 2021)
While ‘The Nun’ couldn’t gain widespread success like its predecessors, Michael Chaves’s horror sequel returns with Ed and Lorraine Warren in this third chapter of ‘The Conjuring’ franchise. The real-life paranormal investigators uncover the story of a murder suspect who claimed demonic possession behind the crime.
The Suicide Squad (August 6, 2021)
Harley Quinn and her mad pals will be back in action next year with Idris Elba joining the clan as the newest member. What’s anticipated as a sequel will actually be a total reboot starring James Gunn’s incredible characters in the 70s based war movie.
Avatar 2 (December 18, 2022) as an honourable mention
After redefining the sci-fi genre in 2009 with ‘Avatar’, James Cameron directed sequel was supposed to hit the theatres by the end of this year but has been postponed indefinitely for another year given the pandemic situation. Sam Worthington will be back in action playing Jake Sully and will share the screen with Zoe Saldana who plays his love interest Neytiri. Coronavirus may have pushed people into their homes and several movie blockbusters into a hole of tentative postponements and cancellations, but the movie line up of 2021 sets the record straight for the movie buffs all around the globe.
Everyone, from Disney lovers to Marvel fanatics, has something to look forward to as we stride to enter the new year which, hopefully, will be joyous and thrilling.
