The 2020 movie season has kicked-off with a bang, and looking ahead to the big-screen releases arriving this year, we’ve rounded up the must-watch films to get your popcorn ready for!
Birds of Prey: The Emancipation of Harley Quinn
Release date: 31 January
Margot Robbie’s fan-favourite DC villain Harley Quinn is getting her own spin-off movie, but it won’t just be about the iconic baddie, as the film showcases the formation of the Birds of Prey, a Suicide Squad-esque gang comprised of some of Gotham’s most hardened female criminals. Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead also star.
Release date: 13 March
Starring Vin Diesel and directed by first-timer Dave Wilson, Bloodshot tells the story of Ray Garrison, a marine who is killed in action but resurrected as a killing machine enhanced by technology. While effective and essentially invincible, Garrison is haunted by memories of his past life that his new handlers want him to forget. The film, which was filmed in South Africa last year, is set to be the first entry in a new comic-book cinematic universe for Valiant Comics’ gallery of characters.
No Time To Die
Release date: 10 April
Daniel Craig is back to follow up Spectre in the next (and supposedly his last) Bond film. In No Time To Die, Bond is pulled out of retirement to rescue a kidnapped scientist who turns out to be far more treacherous than expected. Alongside Craig, Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek takes on the role of the villain this time around, with Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, and Jeffrey Wright all along for the ride.
Release date: 1 May
With the Infinity Saga phase of Marvel’s ever-expanding universe all wrapped up, the studio is now looking to flex it muscles with some of the lesser-appreciated characters – with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow finally getting her solo movie. Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow will explore the life of assassin-turned-Avenger Natasha Romanoff after the events of Captain America: Civil War, and everything leading up to Infinity War.
Release date: 17 July 2020
Christopher Nolan’s films will never cease to drum up excitement and fan-theories, and Tenet is no different. Tenet follows a man tasked with going back in time in order to prevent World War III. John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, and Michael Cain all star.
