The start of the year is always an exciting time for anyone who is a fan of the movies. Keeping abreast of the fresh new releases to look forward to means you can plot when to head to the cinema to ensure you stay on top of all the best films and see them as soon as they hit the big screen. You could even create a video website to log all the movies you’ve seen each month to keep an annual log to showcase the best films of the year!
2020 is set to be a fantastic year for new releases, with many outstanding movies having already come out this month that are worth watching, and many more to come.
So let’s take a look at the best movies to note down in your cinema calendar this year:
- Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
While Suicide Squad, the first DCEU movie to feature Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, seemed to divide audiences, the ‘sequel’ which follows on from it is set to be a corker. Quinn has left the Joker and is off to serve some proper old fashioned vigilante justice with other renegades such as Black Canary, Huntress, and Renee Montoya.
- The King’s Man
An exciting and adrenaline-packed spy-thriller, the Kings Man, is sure to be a popular film in 2020. The movie is the prequel to the Kingsman series, which is based on a comic book. It’s set around WW1 and tells the story of how the spy agency first formed.
A more family-friendly movie that should hit the big screens at the end of March is Disney’s live-action offering, Mulan. It’s based on is a legendary female warrior who was alive around the time of the Northern and Southern dynasties and looks to be exciting, beautiful, and powerful.
- No Time to Die
2020 sees the next in the James Bond series coming out. This will be the 25th Bond film made and will be released in early April. Daniel Craig once again takes up the reins as 007, and we’re sure there will be all action, suspense, and smooth-talking that we’ve come to expect from these super entertaining films.
- Black Widow
Superhero fans will be excited come May 1st as this is the release date for the new Black Widow film. Scarlett Johansson plays the lead, and the film follows on from the events of Captain America: Civil War.
- Top Gun: Maverick
The long-awaited sequel to Top Gun will also be released in early summer this year. With Cruise himself taking the lead role, we can also expect to see other familiar faces as returning cast members include Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, and Jon Hamm.
Another summer release to look forward to is Tenet, which seems to be another fantastic action movie with themes of espionage and time travel thrown into the mix. It stars Robert Patterson as well as some other big names such as Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh, and Michael Caine.
- The Eternals
The big Marvel release for 2020 is The Eternals, though sadly, we’ll have to wait until nearly the end of the year to see it as it is not due out until early November. The Eternals will introduce us to a whole new cast of superhero legends, which will help save humanity against evil villains. Expect epic fight scenes, a witty script, and lots of great special effects too.
Finally, in December 2020, we can finish the year with another action-packed science fiction movie based on the novel by Frank Herbert. Timothée Chalamet plays the leading role of Paul Atreides, the 15-year-old heir to House Atreidesand, who travels to the planet Dune to fight his enemies.
It is going to be an excellent year for films across all genres, so why not grab yourself a fizzy drink, a big box of popcorn, and enjoy all the best new releases in 2020?
