M3GAN (January 6)

Director: Gerald Johnstone

Cast: Allison Williams, Violet McGraw, Ronnie Chan and Brian Jordan Alvarez

Take Chucky and feminize him in the most ironic way possible, and you've got M3GAN. The film follows an inventor (Alison Williams) who gains custody of her newly orphaned niece (Violet McGraw). To cheer her up, she introduced her company's latest creation, M3GAN. Her niece soon begins bonding with the wide-eyed, Renesmee-like robot girl, and of course, things turn violent. Last time Akela Cooper and James Wan teamed up we got Malignant masterpiece and with M3GAN the team wants to give us another winner but we'll get a murderous robot instead of a murderous parasitic twin named Gabriel like Dolls that dance while killing their victims. The word on the street is that M3GAN lived up to the hype, and with a sequel already in early development, I think we have the first blockbuster of 2022. — Nate Richard

You People (January 27)

Director: Kenya Barris

Cast: Eddie Murphy, Jonah Hill, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lauren London, Lauren London, Molly Gordon, Mike Epps, Nia Long, Deon Cole, Rhea Perlman, and David Duchovny

You have serious Comedy descent. Eddie Murphy and Nia Long star Jonah Hill as a white guy who desperately — uncomfortably — seeks approval from the parents of his black girlfriend (Lauren London). Hilarity ensued, no doubt, especially when his parents — Julia Louis-Dreyfus and David Duchovny — joined in. Known for creating noir genres, Kenya Barris directs the feature, which he co-wrote with Hill. I'll be honest: As David Duchovny's resident expert, I was expecting this movie mostly because of him (plus, he sings in it), but judging by the trailer, it looks like it's going to be genuinely funny. — Alyse Wax

Infinity Pool (January 27)

Director: Brandon Cronenberg

Cast: Alexander Skarsgård, Mia Goth and Cleopatra Coleman

It's no surprise that Infinity Pool looks likely to be one of the most disturbing movies of the year. Starring current horror queen Mia Goss, who ruled the genre in 2022 with her performances in X and Pearl, the film is written and directed by Brendan Cronenberg, the man behind gems like Antiviral and Possessor. thought of. The premise is interestingly twisted, in keeping with the Cronenberg brand, as it sees Wealthy couple James (Alexander Skarsgård) and Em (Cleopatra Coleman) are on a luxurious vacation. However, the elusive Gabi (Goth) shows them another neighborhood outside the resort, full of indulgence and danger. When they're involved in a tragic accident - in a place with a zero-tolerance policy on crime - things get even more out of hand. The trailer alone is stylish and chilling, and the visuals of its twisted mask will stick in my head rent-free. – Taylor Gates

Knock at the Cabin (February 3)

Director: M. Night Shyamalan

Cast: Dave Bautista, Jonathon Groff, Ben Aldridge, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Kristen Cui, Abby Quinn and Rupert Grint

Look, you never know what you're going to get M. Night Shyamalan . You could get an exciting director who knows how to go deep and made The Sixth Sense, Unbroken or Split. Or, you could find the guy who took you to the beach to age you, or worse, the guy who made The Happening and After Earth. However, Knock on Log House, based on Paul G. Tremblay's book of the same name, looks like it might be the former, because A family of three is held hostage by four strangers who demand that one of them die to prevent the end of the world. This is an era of crazy concepts where Shyamalan can really work, and with a cast that includes Dave Bautista, Jonathan Groff, and Rupert Grint, that might be a sign of a good Shyamalan. — Ross Bonaime

Magic Mike's Last Dance (February 10)

Director: Steven Soderbergh

Cast: Channing Tatum and Salma Hayek Pinault

Not only will the final film of the Magic Mike story bring Steven Soderbergh back as director, but Channing Tatum's Mike Lane will be teaming up with Salma Hayek Pinault on Magic Mike's final a dance. Mike's story goes international in The Last Dance, as Hayek's character takes Mike to London for a theater performance. While the Magic Mike franchise has always combined a passion for passion with a passion for dance, "The Last Dance" seems to double down on that, now with Hayek's electric energy. If the trailer is any indication of what we have to expect, it looks like Last Dance will be filled with dance performances and a healthy dose of romance On the side, this sounds like the perfect Valentine's Day gift. — Therese Lacson

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (February 17)

Director: Peyton Reed

Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, Jonathan Majors, David Dastmalchian and Randall Park -Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be our first official meeting Kang the Conqueror of the Majors. While it's still unclear who will end up being the villain of the Multiverse Saga, Kang is definitely the frontrunner, making Quantumania a must-see for those of us still keeping an eye on the MCU. Ant-Man 3 will bring back Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, as well as Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer, but it will also introduce Katherine Newton as Scott's grown-up daughter Catherine, who is also known for her own Pick up the superhero mantle. And if all that wasn't enough to whet your appetite, Bill Murray also plays the enigmatic Krylar (who seems to have some kind of past relationship with Pfeiffer's Janet Van Dyne). — Therese Lacson

Director: Colin West

Linoleum (February 24)

Cast: Jim Gaffigan, Rhea Seehorn, Katelyn Nacon, Gabriel Rush and Tony Shalhoub

Linoleum was one of our favorite films from last year's SXSW, a new film from writer-director Colin Weiss Colin West's beautiful film, reminiscent of "American Beauty," "I'm Thinking of Ending It All" and "Magnolia" -- was highly praised. Jim Gaffigan stars as Cameron Edwin, host of an unpopular science show for kids who always dreams of greater things, especially one day go to space. Cameron has been through a lot, his father is aging and forgetful, his wife Irene (Rhiya Sehorn) wants a divorce, and his recent application to NASA was rejected. When the rocket crashes into Cameron's backyard, he decides to live out his dream and try to fix the rocket and go to space. Linoleum is an inventive, surprising and ultimately beautiful film, and it's great that it's finally out in 2023. — Ross Bonham^ Director: Elizabeth Banks^ Cast: Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Alden Ehrenreich, Christian Convery, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Brooklyn Prince, Isiah Whitlock Jr, Kristofer Hivju, Hannah Hoekstra, Aaron Holliday, Margo Martindale, and Matthew Rhys

I don't think I even need to explain why this movie is on the list. this is cocaine Bear. Cocaine Bear is loosely based on the true story of Pablo Escobear, an American black bear who overdosed on 34kg of stolen cocaine. Sadly, in real life, the bear died on the same day, but in Elizabeth Banks' new film, the drug-fueled woodland critter goes on a bloody rampage. It looks savage, cartoonishly violent, and it looks like it's going to hit the crowds. If you want to tell me this looks "bad" then don't start it because you're clearly not having fun and don't enjoy snorting cocaine like the rest of us. Get me a crunchy dollar bill, I'm smoking this. — Nate Richard

Cocaine Bear (February 24)

Director: Michael B. Jordan

Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Jonathan Majors, Wood Harris, Florian Munteanu, and Phylicia Rashad

No longer in the shadow of Rocky Balboa, the Creed franchise launches entirely on its own with Creed III, which not only brings back Michael B. Jordan's underdog boxer Adonis "Donny" Creed, but marks the actor's directorial debut. While the film will be the first Creed installment not to feature Sylvester Stallone in Rocky, it promises a game Hard to beat. Jordan's Creed will take on Damian "Dame" Anderson, a childhood friend who was recently out of prison and looking to resume his boxing career. (We're guessing he's also looking to resolve some of his unresolved grievances with Donnie.) The best part? Anderson is played by Jonathan Majors, which means Creed III will put two of our best 30-something actors on opposite corners of the ring. The first round of bells couldn't come quickly enough. – Robert Brian Taylor^ Director: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin^ Cast: Melissa Barrera, Jasmine Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jenna Alter Ga, Hayden Panettiere and Courteney Cox^ Hi Sid - Oh! The film will require a new line and for the first time in the franchise, which spans nearly 30 years, Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott will not appear. Yep, the iconic final girl who led the first five films won't be returning. This has this writer very worried about my next feature, which for many fans, Neve Campbell's Sidney is Scream. Campbell said of her decision: "I don't feel like the offers that were made to me were equal to my worth. Brought to the franchise. "To think that the actress behind one of the most enduring Final Girls of all time feels she has no worth to the franchise she helped build is incredibly sad not only for her, but for the Scream fanbase as well.

Creed III (March 3)

But, the show has to go on, I think. Scream VI will see Courteney Cox return as Gale Weathers and a new generation of victims in Scream 5. With Campbell gone, it's safe to say Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega's sisters, Sam and Tara Carpenter, will be the official new finalists, whose story is about being taunted again by Ghostface as they try to build a new life for themselves in New York City.Join Theirs is the traditional twins Mindy and Chad (Jasmine Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding) with Dermot Mulroney as a police officer. What hardcore Scream fans are really looking forward to, though, is Hayden Hayden Panettiere's fan favorite Kirby returns in Scream 4. No one knows Kirby survived until after the fifth film. You'll have to wait until March 10, 2023 Day to see if the franchise is available Survive without a queen. — Emma Kiely

Directors: Scott Beck and Bryan Woods

Cast: Adam Driver, Ariana Greenblatt and Chloe Coleman

Scream VI (March 10)

65 of the original title should have been kept under wraps, but apparently, the Sony marketing team didn't get the memo, or they changed their minds, because if you watch If you look at the trailer, it's pretty obvious what 65 refers to. Adam Driver plays an interplanetary pilot who crash-lands on an alien planet. He soon finds himself stranded on Earth...but Earth is Earth 65 million years ago, which means he must now fight dinosaurs while trying to find a way to get back to his own. It's scary, it's sci-fi, it's sounds like a delight! — Alyse Wax

Director: David F. Sandberg

Cast: Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Rachel Zegler, Adam Brody, Ross Butler, Meagan Good, Lucy Liu, Djimon Hounsou and Helen Mirren

It's been a rough year For DCU fans. The Snyderverse was turned upside down when control of DC Studios was handed over to James Gunn and Peter Safran, with many projects now on hold or pending. Luckily, Shazam! Wrath of Gods, the sequel to 2019's Shazam, has been biding its time, pushing its release date back multiple times. Better late than never, Wrath of the Gods brings back Billy Batson (Arthur Angel/Zachary Levi) and his adopted siblings to further explore the new powers of the Wizarding Council. This time, Atlas' daughters Hespera (Helen Mirren), Calypso (Lucy Liu), and Anthea (Rachel Ziegler) have come to gather power they believe they have stolen from the gods, This is a family duel. The question is, will we see more Mr. Mind? Where did that dragon come from? — Tamera Jones

65 (March 17)

Director: Chad Stahelski

Cast: Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, and Ian McShane

John Wick: The Ominous Marketing of Chapter 4 Already making the fourth installment in Chad Stahelski's shootout series one of the most anticipated films of 2023. Whether it's a poster with a bullet hourglass, or a trailer suggesting there's only "one way out" of Keanu Reeves' eponymous Wick movie - it looks like John Wick 4 could change the game for the franchise rule. The movie will see the return of Ian McShane stars as Winston, Lance Reddick as Charon, Laurence Fishburne as Bowery King, new bad boy Bill Skarsgård as villain The Marquis, Shamier Anderson as The Tracker and Clancy Brown as The Harbinger. Stahelski has been looking for ways to bring together the action of his own film, and with the promise that Ken (Donnie Yen) and Shimadzu (Hiroyuki Sanada) will face off in Chapter 4, the excitement reaches fever pitch!

Shazam! Fury of the Gods (March 17)

John Wick: Chapter 4 hits theaters March 24, 2023, but the question remains: Will John Wick emerge from his own film, or is this the final chapter? The trailer definitely hints that this could be a nerve-wracking installment. With the Ana de Armas-led ballerina movie (set between John Wick 3 and John Wick 4) in the works, and The Continental With the prequel series coming to TV screens, 2023 will be a bumper year for John Wick fans. — Maggie Lovitt

Directors: Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley

Cast: Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis and Hugh Grant The time has come, and we couldn't be more excited for the highly anticipated fantasy film to hit the big screen in March. Even those of us who have never played RPG D&D are excited for a movie that looks epic. Additionally, its cast includes Chris Pine, Hugh Grant, Michelle Rodriguez, Justice Smith, Sofia Lillis, and Regal Jean Page.

John Wick: Chapter 4 (March 24)

The storyline follows a ragtag group of thieves who, of course, consider themselves the best thieves in the world. However, they run afoul of a dark and dangerous group and must right their wrongs - and have the adventure of a lifetime along the way. The trailer promises some laughs, some action, some scary-looking creatures, and some cool-looking dragons -- plus Chris Pine playing the lute. It's clear that the film has franchise potential, so it will be interesting to see what doors to deeper worlds the film opens. Hopefully this is worth the hype. — Abby Cavenaugh

Director: George Tillman Jr.

Cast: Khris Davis, Sullivan Jones, Forest Whitaker and John Magaro

Considering its release date is only a few months away, Lionheart is It's amazing that we haven't seen much more from this tale of George Foreman's life and boxing career. What we do know is that Notorious and The Hate U Give director George Tillman Jr. Muhammad Ali. Between Lionheart and Tenet III, March will be a heavyweight fight between boxing movies. — Ross Bonaime

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (March 31)

Directors: Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic

Cast: Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day, Jack Black, Keegan-Michael Key, Seth Rogen and Fred Armisen

Bringing Mario to The Movie 30 Years Later Super Mario Bros., Nintendo is giving the plumber another shot on the big screen with the animated Super Mario Bros. movie. Aside from the internet's hatred for Chris Pratt playing Mario, it's hard not to get excited about this adventure in the Mushroom Kingdom. The first trailers for the Super Mario Bros. movie show off a vibrant world featuring voice actors including Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach (Princess Peach), Brilliantly, Jack Black plays Bowser. We've seen Donkey Kong and the rest of the DK team seem set to play a major role in this adventure, but who knows what other galaxies we might see in this highly anticipated video game adaptation. With Super Nintendo World coming to Universal Studios Hollywood and Mario returning to the movies in a matter of months, this could be Mario's greatest year yet. — Ross Bonaime

Director: Chris McKay

Heart of a Lion (March 31)

Cast: Nicholas Hoult, Nicolas Cage, Awkwafina and Ben Schwartz

Of course, Nicolas Cage has played vampires before, but when the first images of Cage in Renfield came out, the internet nearly collapsed. Who wouldn't be excited to see Cage play Count Dracula, especially with someone as impeccably dressed as this. But Renfield will instead focus on the main character, Dracula's various sidekicks, played by Nicholas Hoult, who realizes that life isn't just about helping you when he meets and falls in love with a traffic cop (played by Awkwafina) Vampire boss. If Nicolas Cage playing a vampire wasn't enough to interest you, may I add that Ben Schwartz is playing a gangster named Teddy Lobo? ? I mean, what else do you need to know? — Ross Bonaime

Director: Lee Cronin

The Super Mario Bros. Movie (April 7)

Cast: Alyssa Sutherland, Lily Sullivan, Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, Nell Fisher and Mia Challis

The Dead shall rise again! Evil Dead Rise has some significant history, starting out as a sequel to Sam Raimi's Dark Army or Fede Alvarez's 2013 remake of Evil Dead remake, but ultimately neither. Instead, Evil Dead Rise is a standalone Evil Dead story about a pair of sisters who discover the Necronomicon in their basement, and the children become fodder for the Deadites. Raimi, Robert Tappert, and Bruce Campbell are all back as executive producers, and the film is written and directed by Lee Cronin, whom Raimi picked directly for the job. — Alyse Wax

Director: Kelly Fremon Craig

Renfield (April 14)

Cast: Rachel McAdams, Abby Ryder Forston and Kathy Bates

Based on Judy Blume's 1970s novel, Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret is a coming-of-age comedy about a sixth grader who moves from New York City to New Jersey. Blume's book explores themes of religion, sexuality, and growing up in a raw and highly valued environment In related ways, the film adaptation is certainly no different with director Kelly Freemont Craig (the mind behind 2016's hit The Edge of Seventeen) at the helm. We can never get enough of the movie, which also stars big names like Rachel McAdams and Kathy Bates. The source material is a modern classic, and we wouldn't be surprised if this movie joins its ranks. – Taylor Gates^ Director: James Gunn^ Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff , Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Will Poulter, Elizabeth Debicki, Sylvester Stallone, Sean Gunn, Maria Bakalova and Chukwudi Iwuji

James Gunn already said Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will mark the end of this team's story, but that's before we know it's also likely to be Gunn's last movie before he signs on for Marvel to become co-CEO of DC Studios. Now, it remains to be seen whether these characters will live on in other ways, but GotG Vol. 3 looks sure to be saying goodbye to this group of Star Misfits. In theory, it's a farewell for both Gunn and the Guardians. also To explore the relationship between Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana), it looks like we'll also get an origin story for Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper). But roll. 3 will also introduce us to Will Poulter's Adam Warlock, a new villain teaming up with High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji) and, thankfully, space dog Cosmo (voiced by Maria Bakalova). If it was a farewell to Guardians and Gunn, it looked like it would be one hell of a farewell blast. — Ross Bonham^ Director: Louis Leterrier^ Cast: Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, John Cena, Jason Momoa, Bree Larson, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Blaze, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Song Kang, Scott East Wood, Michael Rooker, Daniela Melchior, Cardi B, Helen Mirren, Rita Moreno, and Charlize Theron

Evil Dead Rise (April 21)

First, let's talk about the elephant in the room: Why isn't Fast X called FasTen Your Seatbelts? Of all the absurdities about this franchise, this might be the most egregious pick yet. But let's move beyond that and look at that cast! In addition to seeing franchise mainstays like Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez, as well as the return of Jason Statham and John Cena, this Ridiculous packaging, even for a Fast and Furious movie. You've already won multiple Oscars when Brie Larson and Rita Moreno made their debuts, plus Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa and Suicide Squad's Daniela Melchior. It's still amazing to believe that Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron continue to be a part of the franchise. Fast X will also be the first film in the franchise for "Transporter 2" and "Psycho" director Louis Leterrier after Justin Lin stepped down as director. With a bigger cast than ever, and more ridiculous stunts sure to come, it's hard not to get excited about Fast X -- even with that disappointing name. — Ross Bonaime

Director: Rob Marshall

Cast: Halle Bailey, Daveed Diggs, Jacob Tremblay, Awkwafina, Javier Bardem and Melissa McCarthy

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret (April 28)

Just a few months ago, Disney released the first trailer for the highly anticipated live-action remake little mermaid. What makes this movie even more special than its counterparts like Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella is that we finally have an actor of color in the lead role. if you say you didn't cry Watching little girls react to the trailer and finally seeing live-action Disney princesses of color — you're lying. Halle Bailey will play the role of Ariel, and while the first trailer doesn't reveal much, it does show off Bailey's awesome singing voice, which will "be yours" Bring back those familiar notes from Part of Your World. She looks as sensational as Ariel, and The Little Mermaid could just be a live-action remake that would make even the most skeptical Disney critic smile. The film will also star British actors Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Javier Bardem as King Triton, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder and Daveed Diggs as Scat Well, Melissa McCartney plays our villain, Ursula. The Little Mermaid is set to hit theaters on May 26, 2023, and will undoubtedly smash the box office. — Emma Kiely

Directors: Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson

Cast: Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Jake Johnson, Issa Rae, Daniel Kaluuya, Jason Schwartzman, Brian Tyree Henry, Rachel Dratch, Jorma Taccone, Shea Whigham and Oscar Isaac

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (May 5)

After the beloved Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the follow-up to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse may be the most anticipated superhero Movies and animated films in 2023. The first trailer for Across the Spider-Verse reveals we haven't seen many Spider-Man yet, including Oscar Isaac as Spider-Man 2099 and Issa Rae as Spider-Woman . While there's no sign of Spider-Pig yet, the sequel focuses on Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) questing Friendship (maybe more) in this crazy Spider-Verse. Traveling through the Spider-Verse sounded more adventurous, both in terms of storyline and various animation styles, and it seemed like it would make the five years after the last movie worth the wait. — Ross Bonaime

Director: Steven Caple Jr.

Cast: Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, Luna Lauren Vélez, and Tobe Nwigwe

Fast X (May 19)

Years after Michael Bay's Transformers movie, 2018's Travis Knight's Bumblebee introduces us to the Transformers movie Can it actually be good? ? Following in the film's footsteps is Transformers: Rise of the Beast, which takes place in 1994 and sees a group of archaeologists discover a whole host of new Transformers factions in Brooklyn, such as the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons. In addition to the new machines, the actors also Features Anthony Ramos from Into the Heights and Dominique Fishback from Judas and the Black Messiah. After Bumblebee turns the series into a potential universe, we'll see if that was a fluke, or if there really is more to Rise of the Beast than we see. — Ross Bonaime

Director: Josh Greenbaum

Cast: Will Ferrell, Jamie Foxx, Will Forte, Isla Fisher, Randall Park, and Chris Miller team up to bring us a talking dog-centric film R-rated reality comedy. In other words, Hollywood read my mind and made a movie that felt like it was made just for me. Strays follows Reggie (Will Ferrell), a dog abandoned by his ruthless owner (Will Forte) who teams up with a pack of stray dogs, led by the dog voiced by Jamie Foxx, to seek revenge.

The Little Mermaid (May 26)

R-rated comedies built around gags can be flops, I love Seth MacFarlane's Ted Movies and Good Boys, but I can't say the same for Sausage Party and Happytime Murders. That being said, the amount of talent With Strays behind it, and a cast of characters who I think are mostly cute dogs, I can't help but be excited about it. — Nate Richard^ Director: Wes Anderson^ Cast: Tom Hanks, Steve Carell, Margot Robbie, Scarlett Johansson, Edward Norton, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Hong Zhou, Rupert Friend, Maya Hawke, Jeff Goldblum, Jeffrey Wright Liev Schreiber, Tony Revolori, Matt Dillon, Sophia Lillis, Fisher Stevens, Rita Wilson, Bryan Cranson and Willem Dafoe ^Take me to Asteroid City, where Wes Anderson pens quirky and witty characters. As Anderson's ambitions have risen with blockbuster releases like The Grand Budapest Hotel and The French Continent, so have his cast, but Asteroid City may be his craziest cast yet. In addition to old favorites like Jason Schwartzman, Jeff Goldblum, and Willem Dafoe, we've seen Anderson debuts like Tom Hanks, Steve Carell, Margot Robbie, Hong Chau, Maya Hawke, Matt Dillon, and more. Centered around parents and students attending the Young Stargazers convention in 1955, Asteroid City may be Anderson's largest project to date. — Ross Bonaime

Director: Peter Sohn

Cast: Leah Lewis and Mamoudou Athie

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (June 2)

Pixar is almost always at its best Whether it's bringing a toy to life or showing a young girl's emotions when they tackle high-concept topics. Elemental, from The Good Dinosaur director Peter Sohn, does sound like the right type for Pixar's ambitions, as it follows Ember Lumen (Leah Lewis) and Wade Ripple (Mamoudou Athie) Afterwards, they discovered how these seemingly disparate elements had a lot in common. The trailer is instantly captivating as we explore this elemental world, which seems to be the first time Ember and Wade have met, and the first reaction to the footage has been overwhelmingly positive. Elemental might just be another classic in Pixar productions. — Ross Bonaime

Director: Andy Muschietti

Cast: Ezra Miller, Ron Livingston, Michael Keaton, Kiersey Clemons, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Sasha Calle, and Ben Affleck

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts (June 9)

Wait, really? This is still happening? But after all... everything? Are they still The Flash? Even after the DC shakeup? OK, of course, why not.

Yes, it looks like The Flash is finally coming out in 2023 after multiple delays for various reasons. While we don't know what the future holds for the DC Universe, The Flash sure—well At least when it was first announced - it sounded like one of the most ambitious projects DC had ever attempted before. Not only is The Flash's first standalone film, but Michael Keaton returns as Bruce Wayne for the first time in over three decades. Of course, with everything changing, The Flash seems to be a part of the DC Universe that may not exist in the same form anymore, and who knows what The Flash will look like when he finally comes out, but it still seems like there's a lot to be excited about. Prospect Barry Allen returns to the screen. — Ross Bonham^ Director: James Mangold^ Cast: Harrison Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, and Mads Mikkelsen^ When Raiders of the Lost Ark and Spinner of Fortune hit theaters next year, it will be nearly thirty-four years since Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade hit the big screen years. In the wake of 2008's split blockbusters Raiders of the Lost Ark and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Indy fans were anxious about reuniting with the characters, and equally excited to see James Mangold could play for the most likely Harrison Ford's final appearance as the titular character. The fifth Raiders of the Lost Ark will also be the final film score composed by legendary master John Williams, ensuring that audiences will be dazzled not only by Ford, but by Williams as well.

Besides the excitement of seeing Ford don his fedora again, Wheel of Fortune has an impressive cast, including Phoebe Waller-Bridge as his goddaughter Helena, who seems to Exactly the same as Jones. Waller-Bridge's comedic timing and knack for playing compelling characters will undoubtedly set her apart, and hopefully, this may lead to more Helena-centric films. John Rhys-Davies will also reprise his role as Salah, along with Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, Antonio Banderas, Shawnette Renee Wilson , Thomas Kretschmann, Toby Jones, Olivier Richters and Ethan Isidore. Pack your favorite fedora, sturdy leather jacket, and bullwhip and get ready. — Maggie Lovitt

Strays (June 9)

Director: Patrick Wilson

The Insidious franchise will debut in 2023. Five years after Insidious: The Last Key, Insidious: Fear the Dark will be the fifth installment In the series, marks the directorial debut of actor and franchise star Patrick Wilson.

Director: Christopher McQuarrie

Asteroid City (June 16)

Cast: Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Hayley Atwell, Shea Whigham, Pom Klementieff, Rob Delaney, Henry Czerny and Cary Elwes

The Fast and the Furious and The John Wick franchise is also coming out in 2023 - exciting for both reasons! But when it comes to the cream of the action franchise crop, only one film series stands alone. or maybe not so much Stand perilously on a perilous hillside or hang dangerously below a runaway helicopter. That's right: After a brief detour to save movie theaters, Tom Cruise returns to Mission: Impossible as IMF agent Ethan Hunt in Top Gun: Maverick -- the dead reckoning first, which is The seventh (!) film in the most consistent action franchise in cinema. Returning writer/director Christopher McQuarrie is keeping most of the details under wraps, except that this is the first part of a two-film story, but We do know the new film will welcome expected team members Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson alongside an impressive array of newcomers to the franchise Sharing the screen, including Hayley Atwell, Shay Whigham and Pom Klementieff. Longtime fans are also in luck with the return of Henry Czerny's former IMF director, Eugene Kittridge. We haven't seen him since the movie. "Top Gun" may have saved movie theaters, but "Mission: Impossible" reminds us why we had them in the first place. Light the fuse. – Robert Brian Taylor^ Director: Christopher Nolan^ Cast: Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Rami Malek, Florence Pugh, Benny Safdie, Michael Angarano, Josh Hartnett and Kenneth Branagh

After years of supporting roles in nearly every Christopher Nolan film, Cillian Murphy will finally star in Oppenheimer's tale of the father of the atomic bomb story. Oppenheimer marks Nolan's return to WWII-era films after 2017's excellent Dunkirk, and Oppenheimer's cast is ridiculously large enough to dwarf Wes Anderson. Nolan — ever a hater of computer-generated special effects — even used real explosives to recreate a nuclear test. To be sure, with Nolan and the ridiculous cast behind the movie, Oppenheimer seems unlikely to be the bomb. — Ross Bornham^ Director: Greta Gerwig^ Cast: Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Simu Liu, America Ferrera , Michael Cera, Issa Rae, Kingsley Ben Adil, Rhea Pullman, and Kate McKinnon^ If you're not excited about Barbie, let's be honest, you probably don't have a soul. Every part of this project seems to be just the right amount of absurdity and hilarious fun. A trailer largely parodying 2001: A Space Odyssey? outstanding. Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken? A stroke of genius. director grita Gerwig, who has created two grim greats out of Lady Bird and Little Women? inspired! She wrote the screenplay with Noah Baumbach? ? ? let's start. Barbie has it all. Let's go ahead and claim it as the box office champ in 2023 and throw all the Oscars at it right now.

However, those who have watched the Disney+ series Ms. Marvel know that in the final episode's end credits scene, Carol somehow switched places with Kamala Khan (aka Ms. Marvel).

But when it’s announced in the summer of 2020 that there will be a sequel to the iconic 1973 horror film Gathering from the events of the first film, you can only hear fans exclaiming -- some excited, some worried, because sequels rarely do well.

While this could end up being Disney's awkward attempt at self-celebration, it could also be a fascinating look back at the history of the iconic company and the films that led to a century of extraordinary work. Rumor has it that this could be highly referential, considering how many characters make wishes to a star in Disney films, and the casting is already a positive sign as Ariana DeBose will play Asha, It's the latest Disney character to fulfill that key wish, alongside Disney animation mainstay Alan Tudyk.

If there weren't such a great cast and writer-director behind this, Timo The idea of ​​Timotheé Chalamet starring in a movie about a young Willy Wonka might seem like a joke. However, considering Wonka is from Paul King, he directed the first two Paddington films, and the cast is basically a who's who of great British actors, including Sally Hawkins, Olivia Colman, Jim Carter and Rowan Atkinson, it's hard not to get a little excited about Wonka's third big screen appearance.

Cast: Alexander Molony, Ever Anderson, Yara Shahidi, Jim Gaffigan, Alan Tudyk, Molly Parker, and Jude Law

Look, we're all tired of seeing live-action remakes of Disney animated movies, right? Most of them end up being pretty poor stand-ins for the original films, and don't really try anything new in their retellings. But one of the few exceptions was 2016's "Peter's Dragon," from "The Green Knight" and "Ghost Stories" director David Lowery. Pete's Dragon brings a fresh take on the Disney classic, and it seems like Lowery might be doing the same again with Peter Pan & Wendy. Granted, we've returned to Neverland multiple times in live-action, but Lowery has been developing the project for nearly a decade, and Lowery is certainly one of the more interesting directors to take on the story. Plus, who wouldn't want to see Jude Law play Captain Hook alongside Jim Gaffigan As Mr. Smee? A game in Neverland Paradise. — Ross Bonaime

But beyond that, the film also stars Annette Bening, Danny DeVito, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, among others, and has a string of cameos that audiences are sure to be surprised to see. Fans can also expect to see Pine's Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins named in the credits as the project's executive producer. Considering how cool this song sounds, we're looking forward to a summer 2023 release! — Tania Hussain

Considering Rebel Moon is called the dark version of Star Wars, who knows, maybe it will be? Rebel Moon focuses on Kora (Sofia Boutella), a young woman sent to various planets to find warriors to help bring down the evil Regent Balisarius (Ed Skrein). At the very least, as director, writer, producer, and even cinematographer, it'll be interesting to see what Snyder can do with absurdly ambitious projects he seems to have control over. This might be the Snyderverse you're looking for. — Ross Bonaime

Cast: Aaron Pierre, Don Johnson, James Badge Dale, James Cromwell, AnnaSophia Robb and Emory Cohen

Now, I know what you're thinking: who will play L block, and who Are you playing Rubik's Cube? In a year full of video game adaptations ranging from The Last of Us to Gran Turismo, Tetris sounds like the most unnecessary video game movie we could possibly need.

Social network? given. creator? obviously. Flashes of genius? Lesser known and more controversial, but I love it. So when they announced they were making a movie about the creation of Pop-Tarts, I was all for it - the cast and creative team were just icing on the cake. The movie will be a period piece, set in Michigan in the 60s, and sees Kellogg and post-consumer brands compete to see who can win the game of creating breakfast pastry. Jerry Seinfeld will direct, co-write, co-produce and star, along with a slew of iconic co-stars including Melissa McCarthy, Jim Gaffigan and Amy Schumer. – Taylor Gates^ Director: Terrence Malick^ Cast: Mark Rylance, Mathias Schoenaer, Geza Rohrig, Ben Kingsley, Taufik Ba Holm, Bjorn Tolles, Joseph Fiennes, Douglas Booth, Aidan Turner and Lorenzo Gioelli^ Terrence Malick's new film is coming Going out this time is always risky. It's entirely possible that Way of the Wind will be released this year, and it's also possible that Malick has dropped everything and started over. Who knew Malik! Way of the Wind will tell several stories about the life of Jesus, who will be played by Son of Saul star Géza Röhrig. The Way of the Wind will also star Aidan Turner as St. Andrew, Matthias Schonarz as St. Peter, and Mark Rylance as Satan for anyone who has seen Bones. A perfect casting. The gap between Malick's films is often unbearable (the director spent 20 years between "Days of Paradise" and "The Thin Red Line"), but hopefully we'll see The Way of the Wind in 2023. just maybe Don't hold your breath. — Ross Bornham^ Director: Wes Anderson^ Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Ralph Fiennes, Dev Patel, Ben Kingsley, Rupert Friend and Richard Ayod^ A new Wes Anderson movie doesn't come out very often, let alone two a year.

There's the aforementioned Asteroid City, and there's Henry Sugar's brilliant story, Anderson's second adaptation of Roald Dahl's novel, after his brilliant stop-motion masterpiece Fantastic Mr. Fox. You either like Wes Anderson and his wacky fantasies, or they're not for you at all, and as you can probably guess, I'm one of the former. A new Wes Anderson movie feels like an event to me, and while it will be the filmmaker's first movie for Netflix, you can bet I'll be making the trek to see it on the big screen Movie. — Nate Richard
