If there is one thing every movie lover looks forward to each New Year, it’s blockbuster movies! Last year we experienced cinema history with Avengers: Endgame, John Wick: Chapter Three, Aladdin, The Curse of La Llorona, Frozen 2, and so many more. Luckily, as 2020 is the last year of the decade, we can only expect that 2020 movies will wrap it up with a bang!
Any good movie lover knows that great cinema experiences can become a major highlight of the year. So what movies should we anticipate this year? Which director is going to find his/her way to the Golden Globes in 2020? Let’s take a look below!
Bad Boys For Life
Genre – Action Comedy
Many years ago, we saw Bad Boys and then Bad Boys II, and we held those movies close to our hearts. This year 2020, however, the boys are coming back to wrap up the decade! Boy Boys For Life is an action-comedy directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah and stars Hollywood’s favorite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Michael Bay might not be directing the third sequel but we’re crossing our fingers and praying for the best!
Taking the second spot on this list of most anticipated movies in 2020 is The Grudge. Nicolas Pesce directs this horror movie which features Andrea Riseborough, John Cho, and Betty Gilpin. The 2020 movie will be an American remake of the famous Japanese horror tale. The plot surrounds the story of a generational ghost bent on revenge, and who doesn’t love a vengeful ghost?! If horror movies are your favorite, The Grudge is one movie you wouldn’t want to miss out on this year!
The Rhythm Section
Through the decade, we’ve seen Blake Lively as a gossip girl, an ageless woman, an evil twin and now in 2020, we get to see her as an assassin. In this movie, Stephanie (Blake) is a survivor of a plane crash that killed her family and is set to have revenge on the people behind the disaster.
The Rhythm Section is one movie, so many fans are looking forward to this year. Fans anticipating the movie (based on a novel from author Mark Burnell) hope director, Reed Morano, do a great job, and that actors Jude Law, Max Casella, and Sterling K. Brown also put on a performance to remember!
Birds of Prey
Genre: Action Adventure
We all loved Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad and will be reuniting with the character once again in Birds of Prey –a team of interesting DC women. Of course, the team including Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Huntress) and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Black Canary), will be getting into a lot of trouble and causing mayhem wherever they thread, and we can’t wait to see it. Together they will fight against the Black Mask, and will they succeed? Will they fail? We can only wait and see!
Aladdin was released last year, and while fans were singing along to A Whole New World, we couldn’t help but wonder what Disney movie remake would be following. Now we know it’s Mulan!
The movie features actress Liu Yifei as Mulan and other legendary Chinese actors like Jet Li, Gong Li, and of course, Donnie Yen. Just like its other predecessors, Mulan is expected to break the box office!
With these movies listed above, it is no doubt that 2020 will be an amazing year for cinema lovers. So prepare yourself ready for an exciting year ahead!
