The Most Anticipated Movies Of 2020

The Most Anticipated Movies Of 2020

2020 might feel far away, but Hollywood’s
major studios are already planning ahead, and it’s looking like it could be an incredibly
exciting year for the film industry. Here are the most hotly-anticipated movies
coming out next year. Seventeen years after the release of Bad Boys
II, audiences will finally get to see another entry in the classic buddy cop franchise. Sony has slated Bad Boys for Life for January
17th 2020, bringing back Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as Miami Police Department detectives
Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett. Jerry Bruckheimer is set to return to produce
the project, which will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Bad Boys for Life has had a long and difficult
journey to the big screen, and many fans thought that it would never even happen, especially
when the movie was pulled from the studio’s release schedule and lost its initial director
due to scheduling conflicts. But it appears that it’s finally moving forward
now, and should mark a fun new opportunity for fans to enjoy the action adventures of
Smith and Lawrence once again. We may not have any specific details on the
movie’s plot yet, but we’re still pumped. The follow-up to 2014’s Spectre has endured
as rough a road as any entry in the franchise’s five-decade history. It was uncertain for a while if Daniel Craig
would even return for his fifth on-screen mission, while acclaimed Trainspotting director
Danny Boyle initially took and then promptly stepped out of the director’s chair. Now, however, some details about 007’s 25th
cinematic outing are finally becoming clear. Craig will indeed return one last time in
a film by True Detective’s Cary Fukunaga, the first American director to helm a Bond
movie. Intriguingly, Craig’s tenure as Bond has been
marked by a distinct back-and-forth critical reception, middling reactions to Quantum of
Solace and Spectre punctuated overwhelming acclaim for Casino Royale and Skyfall, so,
following that pattern, this movie is set to become a rousing success. Important details such as the film’s title
and who will perform the theme song have yet to be announced, but we do know that Bond
25 will hit theaters on Valentine’s Day 2020. “Are you ready to get back to work?” “With pleasure, M. With pleasure.” After Grooting it up for Marvel’s Guardians
of the Galaxy movies, Vin Diesel is shifting gears for a different sort of comic book film. The Fast & Furious actor will step into the
lead role in Sony’s upcoming Bloodshot movie, adapted from Valiant Comics’ successful comic
series of the same name. The lead character is a wounded soldier who’s
been resurrected through the wonders of nanotechnology, and now he has to hunt down powerful outcasts
called ‘harbingers.’ The comic premiered in 1992 and ran for 110
issues, with upwards of 7.5 million copies sold. Now, with the success of violent comics-derived
films like Logan and Deadpool, Valiant and Sony will surely be striving for an R rating. Given this hero’s taste for blood, we’d expect
nothing less. Bloodshot will be helmed by visual effects
artist and first-time director Dave Wilson and will co-star Eiza Gonzalez, Michael Sheen,
Toby Kebbell, and Sam Heughan, and is due out February 21st. Fans may have to wait an extra year for Fast
& Furious 9, but they’ll get a spinoff movie out of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in
the meantime, and Hobbs and Shaw should be worth the wait when it finally does hit theaters
in the spring of 2019. Although we don’t know much about where the
main saga’s headed next, the pressure to keep upping the stakes should mean it’ll find a
way to be even more epic and ridiculous than any of the previous installments. With Charlize Theron’s Cipher still alive
and on the loose at the end of Fate of the Furious, there are plenty of existing opportunities
for vehicular mayhem. You can probably count on most of your favorite
cast members returning too, and the franchise’s ever-increasing profile means there’s always
the chance they’ll land even more big names to join the cast. Fast & Furious 9 is due for release on April
10th 2020. Film fans will finally get the answer to an
age-old question on May 22nd 2020, when Godzilla and King Kong face off on the big screen. Director Adam Wingard has already assured
fans that his take on the two monsters will crown a definitive winner, unlike the 1962
film that first pit the two characters against each other. This will be the fourth entry in Legendary’s
MonsterVerse, first established in 2014’s Godzilla… “The Iwis won’t speak their name, but I
call ‘em Skullcrawlers.” “Why?” “‘Cos it sounds neat.” …and further expanded on with Kong: Skull
Island. Godzilla: King of the Monsters will open that
world even wider in 2019, bringing old favorites like Mothra and Rodan into the fray and setting
the stage for this next clash of the titans. Godzilla vs. Kong is the biggest project yet
for Wingard, whose previous directing credits include You’re Next and The Guest. As if the collision of these two screen icons
wasn’t fan-pleasing enough, the movie will also feature an impressive line-up of human
actors. Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown will reprise
her King of the Monsters role, with Black Panther’s Danai Gurira and Deadpool 2’s Julian
Dennison also attached to star. Audiences haven’t seen much of Angelina Jolie
over the past few years; in fact, her most recent big-budget movie was 2014’s Maleficent. Now, after four years of waiting, Disney has
confirmed the return of the fairy with the horns and the high cheekbones, announcing
that Maleficent 2 has started production, with Jolie and Elle Fanning reprising their
roles as Maleficent and Aurora. According to the synopsis, the sequel begins
several years after the first chapter, and follows the complicated relationship between
the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen. Hot off her appearance in Ant-Man and the
Wasp, Michelle Pfeiffer has signed on to the project as Queen Ingrith. Harris Dickinson, who has just finished playing
John Paul Getty the Third in the FX series Trust, will step in to replace Brenton Thwaites
as Prince Phillip, Aurora’s love interest. Joachim Rønnin, who directed 2017’s Pirates
of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, will venture into the enchanted forest to
helm the feature, which is set to hit theaters on May 29th. 2017’s Wonder Woman is the most critically
acclaimed movie in the DC Extended Universe by a very wide margin. It makes sense, then, that Gal Gadot’s next
adventure as the Amazonian warrior is being fast-tracked back to the big screen while
Superman and Batman are left to struggle against a legion of issues and complications standing
in the way of their next movie appearances. “One misses the days when one’s biggest
concerns were exploding wind-up penguins.” Diana’s second solo story hasn’t been without
its own delays, however; Wonder Woman 1984 was pushed back from its original 2019 holiday
season release to June 5th 2020. When the movie does finally arrive, it will
likely bring with it just the kind of colorful blast from the past its title promises. Filling in part of the timeline between the
first movie’s World War I setting and the hero’s reemergence in Dawn of Justice, Wonder
Woman 1984 will see the return of Gadot, Chris Pine and director Patty Jenkins. SNL alum Kristen Wiig also joins the fray
as nemesis Cheetah, who will clash with Diana in the depths of the Soviet Union. It’s pretty hard to keep a movie production
a secret for very long, especially in the modern age. That’s why it was so shocking when filmmaker
Jason Reitman revealed that not only was he working on a new Ghostbusters movie, but that
he already had a vague but atmospheric teaser trailer ready, announcing its summer 2020
arrival. The son of original Ghostbusters director
Ivan Reitman, Jason has formed his own identity as a director with such offbeat, low-key dramedies
as Juno and Tully. Now he’s ready to direct and co-write a new
chapter of the story he watched unfold on set as a child. Gil Kenan, the director of 2015’s Poltergeist
remake, will be sharing writing duties with Reitman. There were plenty of reasons for fans to be
a little frustrated with Paul Feig’s 2016 Ghostbusters reboot, but it’s still a bold
move for Reitman to return to the original timeline. He explained to Entertainment Weekly: “It is not a reboot. What happened in the ’80s happened in the
’80s, and this is set in the present day.” It remains to be seen who else will be involved,
Harold Ramis passed away in 2014, Rick Moranis is in semi-retirement and Bill Murray has
long been slippery on the topic of committing to another sequel. But then, who really knows what Bill Murray
could do at any given moment? “I love this plan, I’m excited to be a part
of it. Let’s do it!” Director Joseph Kosinski made his movie debut
with 2010’s TRON: Legacy, a sequel for a generation that hadn’t even been born when its predecessor
was made. Now, he’s set to do it again with Top Gun:
Maverick, the 2020 follow-up to 1986’s classic flyboy thrill ride. This new installment will find the original
movie’s hero taking the son of his fallen friend under his wing. Top Gun director Tony Scott had once envisioned
a sequel to his original movie, but his death in 2010 put those plans on hold. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer remained dedicated,
however, eventually hiring Kosinski and securing the commitment of original stars Tom Cruise
and Val Kilmer. Miles Teller will play the son of Goose, with
Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, and Ed Harris also joining the cast. A big part of Top Gun’s success was its wildly
popular soundtrack, so it’s lucky that Harold Faltermeyer is also returning to compose the
score, with Kenny Loggins recording a new version of “Danger Zone” for the movie. Feel the need for speed on June 26th. Lin-Manuel Miranda has become one of the defining
songwriters and performers of his generation. Not only did he earn a Pulitzer Prize for
the monumental impact of his Broadway musical Hamilton, but he’s also been a delightful
presence in family film and television. Meanwhile, director Jon M. Chu is best known
for forging a cultural phenomenon in 2018 with Crazy Rich Asians. Combining these two forces can only be a great
idea. And that’s exactly what’s going to happen
in 2020, with Chu’s adaptation of Miranda’s debut Broadway musical, In the Heights. Though little else has been revealed about
the movie, the show examines the lives of the Hispanic-American residents of the Washington
Heights neighborhood of New York City. Miranda himself originally played the central
role of Usnavi, a young bodega owner who dreams of returning to his familial home of the Dominican
Republic. After a long and troubled development history
that stretches back a whole decade, In the Heights will finally hit screens on June 26th. The Crimes of Grindelwald may have been cursed
with a less enthusiastic critical response than expected, but it nevertheless continued
the Harry Potter tradition of conjuring hoards of box office gold. So there’s no reason for Warner Bros., J.K. Rowling, or director David Yates to transfigure
their plans for a five-movie Fantastic Beasts franchise, and the third entry holds fast
in its slated November 20th release date. The ending of the second movie left Newt Scamander
and company with a number of potential paths forward. Unlike the original Harry Potter movies, the
Fantastic Beasts screenplays aren’t adapted directly from books, so we can’t be certain
just where Rowling will take her Wizarding World next. She has dropped some hints, however, including
the possibility that Fantastic Beasts 3 could take place in Rio de Janeiro, a few years
after its predecessor. We’re getting not one, not two, not even three,
but four Avatar sequels over the next decade, the first of which will hit theaters on December
18th 2020. This massive undertaking reportedly has a
total budget of over $1 billion, allowing director and franchise mastermind James Cameron
to fully embrace a slew of new technologies and ensure that the sequels are as visually
stunning as the first chapter. Cameron isn’t slouching on the story, either,
and the movies are said to be a family saga about Jake, Neytiri, and their children. Much of Avatar’s cast is set to return,
with some making a comeback despite their deaths in the original film. Newcomers include Fear the Walking Dead’s
Cliff Curtis as Tonowari, the leader of a clan of reef people, and Game of Thrones’
Oona Chaplin as Varang, a prominent character described as strong and vibrant. A group of young actors will take on mostly
CGI roles as the younger set of Pandora residents, bringing the film a whole new challenge, and
hopefully, some new life as well. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about your favorite

  1. With the F14 an obsolete aircraft, Top Gun fans might be disappointed in seeing the F35 as today's multi role jet when it never was intended to be a joint strike fighter like the F22. Let's see how the movie goes.

  3. I am speechless…… There wasn't one single glimmer of thoughtful, truly creative filmmaking in this whole lot. It looks like the prime directive in the USA these days is to make damn sure little kids get some seriously realistic and exhilarating dinosaur action!! No matter what it costs!!

  4. 2020 the first year in quite a while there will be no Avengers or Star Wars movie but I’m still surprised none of the Marvel movies were mentioned. Although not yet confirmed I am excited for the Eternals.

  5. The narrator killed this video. Learn how to pronounce actors names correctly. And do your research on how to pronounce villains names too. You butchered it all.

  6. Jesus, can you at least try to pronounce these people's names right? It's not like they're famous or anything.

  7. Wonder women is going to be the most critically acclaimed movie as it features a Zionist in a lead role. Although it script and story is shit

  9. You show Riddick, I click
    you don't show next Pitch Black Installment, I downvote

  10. 07:39 Bill Murray told many time already he would appear at a direct sequence of Ghostbusters ( 2016 isn't Ghostbusters ) only if his character is a ghost. Venkman as a life character at GB3 won't happen, no matter how much fans (me included) wanting him at it.


  12. Chantelle lockwick love you too much blake bosschaart earth Australia perth city

  13. Not a fan of Daniel Craig James Bond good actor just doesn’t fit in as bond he is more of a cowboy type he looks like he has been road hard and put away wet

  14. "Harbinger". Pronounced like "binge" (er) NOT like "finger". Ffs. It's not even a made up word that can be debated. It has a clear definition and thus a clear pronunciation. Please Looper "journalists", get your shit together. My "God-ut".

  15. Daniel, you are great and all but you are no bond as you have stated multiple times yourself. So glad this will be his last film so that this poor franchise can find someone iconic for this role again.

  16. It's called Maleficent mistress of evil coming out October 18 this year

    4. Mulan
    5. Soul
    6. Cruella
    7. The SpongeBob Movie: It's a Wonderful Sponge
    9. Trolls World Tour

  18. This franchise officially is not going past the second movie due to the ridiculous budget of 1 billion dollars. Even if the sequel reaches a billion which I seriously doubt because most sequels Almost Never you better then their first movies. On top of that there's no way that they're going to make enough of a profit after breaking a billion dollars to want to attempt to go ahead with the other movies. And that's a damn shame. Because I was really looking forward to a huge franchise of Avatar movies

  19. The title says " ..Most Anticipated" .. the majority of movies you have shown are pure soiled excrement.. if this is the most we can expect then 2020 will be a black hole for movie goers. It's no wonder why so many people are turning to streaming services . AND shame on you Looper for click baiting !! I never thought you would hit such a low point.

  20. Can't say I will see, or that I am excited about, any of this garbage. I miss the days where the titles weren't all known properties. Give me something fresh god damn it.
