Film Lists

anticipated 2021 releases – films

It is no news that this pandemic shifted the film sphere in different ways. With that, the following are the films I hope to see, provided that the schedule stays fairly stable:


BOOK-TO-FILM ADAPTATIONS

The Woman in the Window

I read the book in February last year and I’m excited to see how it plays out on screen.


Dune

Okay, I haven’t read this one yet but it looks great.


BIOPICS

Respect

I just know Academy Award Winner Jennifer Hudson is going to do the damn thing.


Spencer

Okay Kristen, come through …


HORROR

A Quiet Place II

Shhhhh


Candyman

I watched Candyman (1992) as a kid and was hella traumatized and you know what, I can’t wait to go through that again.


MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE

Last year I did a full MCU marathon for the first 23 films in the series. So of course, I’m anticipating the first 4 films of Phase 4: Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home along with the television series to be released this year.


OTHER

Malcolm & Marie

(I’ve actually seen this one already)


No Time to Die

I may need to do a full Bond marathon before this one.


Don’t Look Up – Here to end the Jennifer Lawrence drought.


These are films I knew about prior to the start of the year. Since 2021, a couple joined the club:

Judas and the Black Messiah – Daniel Kaluuya & Lakeith Stanfield supremacy

Raya and the Last Dragon – The only animated film on my list. Hopefully there will be more.

That’s it!
