Happy 2022! Here are Some Movies to Look Forward To
Posted on January 2, 2022 at 6:17 pm
Tom Cruise is back! 2022 will include not one but two hotly anticipated Tom Cruise sequels. “Top Gun: Maverick” takes us back to the training facility in San Diego where the “need for speed” pilot with both impulse control and attitude problems got his strart. The film, delayed due to the pandemic, is reported to feature new cinematography techniques that will make us feel like we’re in the cockpit.
And then we have another “Mission Impossible” movie. We don’t know much about it yet, but it is fair to expect that at some point someone will not be the person whose face we thought we were seeing. We’ll also be seeing a sequel to “Avatar” (with three more coming after that) and a third “Creed” movie starring Michael B. Jordan.
The 355: Women spies from different countries unite to save the world.
Moonfall: A dramatic version of “Don’t Look Up,” with the moon exploding and only Halle Berry and Patrick Wilson to save the day.
Uncharted: Mark Wahlberg and Tom Holland star in this action/adventure based on the popular game.
The Lost City: Romance, comedy, and adventure when Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum go on a “Romancing the Stone”-style adventure.
Everything Everywhere All at Once: Another meta-verse movie! But this one looks AMAZING and Michelle Yeoh is just the beginning.
John Wick 4: The Wick-iest!
Comic book movies:
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse: The sequel to the Oscar-winning animated film that introduced us to Miles Morales and the Spidey meta-verse.
The Batman: Robert Pattinson takes on the role of Gotham’s favorite superhero.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: Yet another multiverse saga, perhaps following on last year’s Spiderman: No Way Home.
DC League of Superpets: When Superman needs to be saved, his faithful dog will have to rescue him.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever: The devastating loss of Chadwick Boseman is reflected in this sequel, with the Wakandans trying to find a way forward.
Thor: Love and Thunder: Director/rock guy Taika Watiti and star Chris Hemsworth return for a fourth movie about the Norse God.
Black Adam: Dwayne Johnson stars as the DC supervillain, opposite Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.
For the family:
Hotel Transylvania 4: It’s a big switch as the human Johnny becomes a monster and the monsters become human.
Turning Red: Pixar’s latest take on the perils of adolescence has a girl who turns into a red panda when she gets mad.
Minions: The Rise of Gru: How did Gru become a “despicable” evil mastermind? We’re going to find out!
Bros: A romantic comedy about a gay couple, starring Billy Eichnerr.
Marry Me: A pop star (Jennifer Lopez) impulsively marries a teacher she’s never met (Owen Wilson). I wonder if they’ll end up together?
Ticket to Paradise: George Clooney and Julia Roberts, who played spouses in the Oceans 11 movies, play ex-spouses in this film.
Pixar perfectly captured the inner life of a pre-teen in delightfully concrete form, making characters of the emotions fear, disgust, joy, and sadness in the brilliant Oscar-winner “Inside Out.” This trailer for its spring 2022 film “Turning Red” looks like a variation on that theme, with a confident, capable young girl finding her newly stronger and more complicated emotions literally coming to life. Can’t wait to see it.
This new version of the play about the man who can only woo the woman he loves through letters signed by someone else looks gorgeous, and swooningly romantic. For earlier versions, see Jose Ferrar in “Cyrano de Bergerac” and Steve Martin’s modern update, “Roxanne.”) Peter Dinklage has all of the dash and world-weariness we want to see in the character and up-and-coming stars Hayley Bennett and Kelvin Harrison, Jr. look like they will cross over into well-deserved mega-stardom from this film. Can’t wait.
