Vanessa Kirby, known to many for playing Princess Margaret on The Crown, earned raves during the primarily virtual fall festival season for her performance as a woman grieving her baby, who died moments after birth. In a fictional story based on the personal experiences of writer-director team Kornel Mundruczo and Kata Weber, who are partners in real life, Kirby’s Martha moves through her grief, against the backdrop of a trial against her midwife and a faltering marriage, to find her way forward again.
The 355 (January)
Oscar-winning actress Jessica Chastain will be teaming up with Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger, and Lupita Nyong’o in this original entry in the action movie genre. Chastain will be playing a CIA agent who joins forces with a team of spies from around the globe to thwart a plot that could have devastating consequences for the world.
This globe-trotting thriller will be far more serious-minded than the other female-centric action flick, Charlie's Angels, but with the trailers' scenes of gunplay, martial arts, and rooftop leaping, it should be no less action-packed. The film is due to hit theaters in January.
Raya and the Last Dragon (March 5)

Disney’s latest 3D animation film will arrive on March 5, bringing the story of a land where long ago dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity from evil monsters. Now, the monsters have returned and a star-studded cast, featuring Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Raya and Awkwafina as the last dragon known to exist, will have to find a way to save the world.

Daniel Craig will play James Bond for the fifth and final time in this much-delayed film, which is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, Maniac) and includes screenwriting from Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The franchise adds some intriguing new faces—Ana de Armas, who previously acted with Craig in Knives Out—Rami Malek, who plays the menacing villain Safin, and Lashana Lynch, who will take on the mantle of 007.
Fast & Furious 9 (May 28)
Dominic Toretto and the family return in the ninth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise. The films staring the diverse cast of Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, and more have grossed more than $4 billion at the box office and has become one of the most successful movie franchises in cinematic history. The Fast franchise recently spun off its highly popular Det. Luke Hobbs, and Deckard Shaw characters for the 2019 blockbuster hit Hobbs & Shaw, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham.
In the Heights (June 18)
Based on the epynonmous Tony-Award winning musical, In the Heights takes you on a journey with through New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood. Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the hit musical Hamilton, executive produces the project along with joining the talented cast of Anthony Ramos, Stephanie Beatriz, and more of this big screen adaptation of the original Broadway smash. Originally scheduled for June 2020, In The Heights comes to movie theaters in the summer of 2021.
The Suicide Squad
Despite the hugely popular 2017 release of Suicide Squad starring an ensemble cast featuring Will Smith, Jared Leto, and Margo Robbie, DC and Warner Bros. have decided to reboot this fan-favorite franchise of your favorite DC anti-heros. While Margot Robbie will reprise her role of Harley Quinn, newcomers Idris Elba, John Cena, and David Dastmalchian will be rounding out the cast in yet to be verified characters.
Top Gun Maverick (July 2)
After waiting 34 years for a sequel to Top Gun, it must have really cooled the jets of high-flying fans to have the movie pushed into 2021. But come July 2021, those craving a return to the dogfighting world of Maverick and Ice Man will get their chance to experience the Joseph Kosinski-directed film. Starring Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly and Jon Hamm, the movie will also feature Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer reprising their classic roles. Kelly McGillis, who played Charlotte “Charlie” Blackwood in the original movie says she was not asked to return for Top Gun: Maverick.
Space Jam: A New Legacy (July 16)
Lebron James has been drawing comparisons to Michael Jordan since he entered the NBA, and that dialogue has only intensified since James won his fourth NBA title in October. James may or may not be a better basketball player than Jordan, but by taking the lead role in the sequel to Space Jam, James has unequivocally embraced his position as Jordan’s cultural heir. But James has also gone farther in Hollywood than Jordan ever did: his producing credits include Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Becoming, and he’s also proved his surprisingly agile comedic abilities in Trainwreck and Smallfoot. In the film, James ditches his Lakers teammates for the Looney Tunes gang. Don Cheadle and basketball stars like Chris Paul and Diana Taurasi are also set to appear.
The Matrix 4 (Dec. 22)
There are quite a high number of upcoming sci-fi movies that are getting people excited, including the upcoming Dune movie, but the release of The Matrix 4 might be the most exciting of them all. Both Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will be returning, as Neo and Trinity respectively, and Lana Wachowski will be back to direct.
In terms of story, not a lot is known about this sequel. However, the plot almost doesn't matter, as it's the action many people will be looking forward to, especially if it can match the special effects spectacle of the original trilogy. It might even revolutionize the face of action cinema again, as happened back in 1999 with the launch of bullet-time. Prepare to take the red pill next December!
