Lots of great movies coming our way! Of course the usual blockbusters and sequels and a new Pixar, and, as always, what I am most looking forward to is being surprised by some new director or star or filmmaker I don’t know now but will soon be unable to imagine the world without.

Some highlights about what’s coming:


Past Lives A love story across time and distance.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse The sequel to the unexpected hit and winner of the Animation Oscar.

Flamin’ Hot Eva Longoria directed this origin story of a janitor who came up with the idea for spicy Cheetos.

Elemental You just know Pixar will make us all cry again in this story of a girl made of fire who falls for a guy made of water.

The Flash One of DC’s most popular superhero characters gets his own movie.

Asteroid City We don’t know much about Wes Anderson’s latest, but we do know that the visuals will be filled with dazzling visual details and quirky characters.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny Harrison Ford as Indy. Time travel. Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Enough said.

Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but an animated sea beast!
