Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies 2021
Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies 2021: Here are the movie releases we’re most looking forward to in 2021. With reshoots becoming increasingly common practice and studios constantly adapting to the streaming market, most would’ve anticipated some of those movies being subjected to delays.
The industry continues to struggle with closures and blockbuster delays. Production remains impacted also, causing a bottleneck at the front of the process and the distribution end. Few would dare guess what 2021 has in store, but as far as the cinematic landscape is concerned.
These are the movies that could make 2021 a much better year.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage (June 25)
2018’s Venom (starring Tom Hardy as the titular symbiote) was a curious proposition in that the supervillain effort took an impressive box office haul, despite being almost unanimously panned by critics. Nevertheless, a sequel was inevitable, especially with Woody Harrelson set up as Carnage.
Space Jam: A New Legacy (July 16)
A New Legacy sees James trying to escape a digital world by winning a basketball match with his animated companions. Time will tell whether Space Jam’s sequel is a much-needed slice of fun or a retro movie nostalgia trip too far.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife (November 11)
Afterlife promises a return to the continuity of the original movies. New stars such as Paul Rudd and Finn Wolfhard collide with the likes of Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, and Dan Aykroyd, as the legacy of the original Ghostbusters team catches up to the present day.
Shang-Chi & The Legend Of The Ten Rings (July 9)
The MCU endured an unexpectedly quiet 2020 after becoming accustomed to releasing blockbusters across the calendar year. Of course, one drawback of the shared universe format is that delaying one or two films creates a domino effect that reverberates throughout the entire franchise. Shang-Chi & The Legend of the Ten Rings had the misfortune to begin shooting in February 2020, with months of enforced inactivity pushing the original February 2021 release date to July.
A Quiet Place Part II (September 17)
John Krasinski announced himself as a director with 2018’s A Quiet Place – a unique, modern horror that relies on minimal dialogue to create the wonderfully tense atmosphere of an Earth crawling with sound-sensitive monsters.
Eternals (November 5)
Eternals also features one of the MCU’s strongest non-Avengers casts, with Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, and Kit Harington suiting up for the very first time.
Black Widow (May 7)
The Suicide Squad (August 6)
F9 (June 25)
The Matrix 4 (December 22)
Now more than ever, The Matrix holds a relevance that justifies the existence of a fourth movie almost 20 years after the original trilogy concluded. Keanu Reeves’ Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity will somehow return from the dead and join newcomers such as Neil Patrick Harris, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, and Jessica Henwick, as we all plug back into the Matrix for a new philosophical journey through the gap between realities.
