I’ll pop the corn, you grab the snacks.
Dan and I are such movie feens when it comes to the cinema and it’s one of the things we were so gutted closed during COVID! But needs must and to be honest I’d rather be safer than sorry.
What cut deep however was the fact 2020 was set to be a year of epic blockbuster movies that would take us on a magical journey from drinking martini’s with James Bond and kicking ass with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow to rocking out with Bill and Ted (Dan’s choice not mine). But no, we had to suffer the long-awaited – even if slightly disappointing, *cough* Mulan *cough* – movies on Disney+ or Netflix.
And it doesn’t stop there.. even our fave 2021 movies have been affected! The Batman and Avatar 2 have been pushed back to 2022 (!!) – a whole year later… WTF!
I’m just holding out for the day when the return of watching movies inside Cinemas appears, but for now I’ve got you covered with the blockbuster movies we can anticipate this year:
The Kings Man
I can’t wait for the World War I-era prequel to the sharp-dressed Kingsman series, especially as Rasputin takes to the screen as our baddy!
Original release date: 18th September 2020
New release date: 12th March 2021
Phoebe Waller-Bridge does it again! She has co-written Daniel Craigs final outing as 007. I’ve waited a year for this blockbuster movie to finally be released (fingers crossed).
Original release date: A guessed day in March 2020
New release date: 2nd April 2021
A Quiet Place II
They’re true couple goals and it clearly translates into their professional lives. John Krasinski directs wife Emily Blunt and my favourite Shelby, Cillian Murphy in this post-apocalyptic tale of a world in which noise equals death.
Original release date: Also March 2020
New release date: 23rd April 2021
She’s my second favourite Avenger behind RDJ (of course) and I’m so excited she gets her own movie which delves into the Russian super-assassin’s origins. Thank god Disney+ covers Marvel as I don’t think I could survive if this was delayed again.
Original release date: 1st May 2020
New release date: 7th May 2021
Only Disney would make a movie based on one of their amusement park rides… Oh and it’ll be available to watch on the streaming service.
Original release date: sometime in July 2020
New release date: 30th July 2021
Also set to be streamed on HBO Max (unlucky for us Brits), this adaptation of the classic Dune sci-fi novels sees a start studded cast hopes to be better than the original.
Original release date: 18th December 2020
New release date: 1st October 2021
