#10) A Quiet place Part II (23 April)
From left to right, Regan (Millicent Simmonds), Marcus (Noah Skirt) and Evelyn (Emily Blunt) venture into the unknown in the second part of Quiet Place.
John Krasinski’s inventive horror film, A Quiet Place, totally blew me away and was one of my favorite films of 2018. Not only did the film revolutionize the use of sound, it also had an amazing emotional depth that few people expected to see in the future. While not necessarily a sequel, Krasinski returns as director and has the same cast and crew, which is certainly cause for optimism. The second part of A Quiet Place was to be released in March, a week after theaters around the world were initially closed due to the lockdown. Some critics were lucky enough to see the film before it closed, and the reactions were excellent, with many saying it was a worthy sequel that lived up to its predecessor. With themes that have something to do with the pandemic, A Quiet Place Part 2 is closer to reality than it would have been had it been published last year.
#9) Lucas (June 18)
Set in a beautiful coastal town on the Italian Riviera, Disney’s Luca and Pixar tell the story of how a boy and his new best friend spend an unforgettable summer of ice cream, macaroons and endless scooter rides. But their fun is threatened by a secret: They’re sea monsters from another world. Luca is directed by Enrico Casarosa (La Luna) and produced by Andrea Warren (Lava, Cars 3). 2020 Disney/Pixar. All rights reserved.
Many longtime fans are wondering if Pixar still has gas in its tank. Thankfully, the famed animation studio released one of its best films and one of its most mature to date last month with Soul. With Soul, Pixar proved that they can still provide a magical cinematic experience. Luke will be his 24th. It’s a future film, and many fans feel it could still be a great success. The film tells the story of a boy who lives on the Italian Riviera and befriends a sea monster. In anticipation of the trailer, the photos and music video released so far are absolutely stunning and feature a colorful animation style. It’s quite possible that the film is aimed more at children and fits into Pixar’s cinematography in the vein of Onward and Finding Dory, though it’s more like Coco and the Soul.
#8) Amsterdam (TBA)
In the spring of 2010, David O. Russell ran a legendary race with Oscar nominees The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. It’s been five years since her last film, Joy, was released in theaters. The film was a failure, but fans have been looking forward to Russell’s next move for a while now. The film looks like a return to form based on casting alone. The film revolves around an unlikely partnership between a doctor and a lawyer and stars Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Rami Malek, Zoe Saldana, Robert DeNiro, Mike Myers, Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Rock, Michael Shannon, Andrea Riseborough and Mattias Schoenerts. Although the property is still very vague, Amsterdam (working title) is clearly destined to win an Oscar.
#7) French shipment (TBA)

French Dispatch was originally scheduled to premiere at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival, but was postponed several times before finally deciding on a theatrical release in 2021. Wes Anderson is a favorite director, so it’s no surprise that his tenth feature film is back on my list. The trailer was released in early 2020 and at first glance, Anderson’s Love Letter, based on the newspaper industry anthology, could be one of his best films to date. Whether you like his offbeat sensibility or not, Anderson is a master of his art whose writing and visual style cannot be duplicated, and it seems he has once again created his own technical marvel. With an absolutely complex cast (probably his best), it’s impossible not to be intrigued by Anderson’s latest.
#6) Nightmare Alley (TBA)
Legendary director Guillermo del Toro returns with one of the best Oscar-winning films to date. Based on the 1946 novel of the same name, an ambitious showman turned con man with a talent for manipulating people teams up with a psychiatrist who discovers he’s even more dangerous than he is. The film has an absolutely exceptional cast including Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett, Willem Dafoe, Toni Collette, Richard Jenkins, Ron Perlman, Rooney Mara, David Strathairn and Tim Blake Nelson. With Del Toro directing and writing, this is sure to be one of the most creative and magical films of the year.
#5) Last night in Soho (April 23),…
Edgar Wright is one of the few filmmakers working today who can entice a large audience just by recognizing his name. His unique comedy style, his extraordinary visual style and his ability to create iconic characters make him a star. While I’m not a fan of everything Wright has done, he is without a doubt a brilliant director who blends genres in a fluid way that no other director can. Originally scheduled for September 2020, Last Night in SoHo was pushed back to April 2021, shortly after the Oscars, making it one of the first majors of 2021. Last night in Soho is a departure for Wright, as he seems to be turning away from his typical comedic style to the horror of art. The images released so far are amazing and undoubtedly reminiscent of the horror films of the 1970s, with a touch of neo-black. Starring It’s current daughters Anya Taylor-Joy and Thomasin McKenzie, the film is certainly one of the most talked-about films of the year.
#4) Go Go Go (TBA)
Although he is highly regarded on the independent scene, Mike Mills is a director who deserves far more praise and attention than he gets. The newcomers are excellent, but his magnum opus 20. Women of the century who really loved me. It’s been over four years since the aforementioned film was released in theaters, and Mills is finally getting ready to release the long-awaited sequel. In C’mon C’mon, Oscar-winning Joaquin Phoenix plays the role of an artist who becomes the guardian of his precious young nephew and forms an unexpected bond as he travels the country. Shot entirely in black and white, the film will likely be as visually stunning, technically unique and deeply human as Mills’ previous films. Mills is again working with A24, who will likely lobby for the film to be considered for an award.
#3) Wet soil (TBA)
Every time Paul Thomas Anderson announces a new movie, it’s impossible not to cheer him on. He has proven time and time again that he is one of the most consistent filmmakers working today, as each of his films has artistic merit. His latest production, Soggy Bottom, may be his favorite. The film is a 1970s epic about a high school student whose life changes when he suddenly becomes a world-famous actor. The full cast has not yet been announced, but so far it includes Bradley Cooper, Alana Haim, Benny Safdie and newcomer Cooper Hoffman. The film is similar to Almost Famous and PTA Boogie Nights. It’s sure to be one of the most talked about films of the year and could finally earn Paul Thomas Anderson his long awaited Oscar.
#2) Dune (October 1)
(L-r) TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET as Paul Atreides and REBECCA FERGUSON as Lady Jessica Atreides in Warner Bros.
Denis Villeneuve’s long-awaited adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel by Denis Villeneuve was at the top of my list last year, and while it didn’t make it to the top this time around due to even more competition, it’s hard not to be more excited than a year ago. The release of Dune was originally scheduled for last December, before the film was delayed. Although we haven’t seen the movie yet, Warner Bros. has released the latest trailer, which is absolutely incredible. With Arrivée and Blade Runner 2049, Villeneuve proved that he had mastered the art of blockbuster production, making him the ideal choice to adapt a novel that had previously been considered inappropriate. The film presented for screening is unlike anything we have seen before, and it is a film that will surely lure moviegoers to the cinema after the state of the halls has been damaged by the KOVID-19 pandemic. With an impressive director at the helm, a first-rate cast and music by legendary composer Hans Zimmer, Dune is undoubtedly the biggest film event of the year.
#1) Dear Evan Hansen (TBC)

As hungry as I am for a great Dune-inspired theatrical event, there’s no way that Stephen Chbosky’s adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen could top my list. I had the opportunity to go to a theatre production in Toronto a few years ago, and I was completely blown away and became a huge fan of the play and its soundtrack. Chbosky made the most popular film in the Clove Perspective, and when it was announced that he would direct the adaptation by the highly regarded Evan Hansen, he was inevitably at the top of that list. Ben Platt will reprise his role as Evan Hansen in the film, while Caitlin Dever, Amy Adams, Julianne Moore and Amanda Stenberg complete the impressive cast. While the film is not officially scheduled for 2021, production just finished this month and it is on its way to the printer, so it will likely be ready for awards season.
