2020/2021 Upcoming Film Releases



From Mulan to Top Gun: Maverick, here's a list of all the films being released in cinemas this year.

The cinema industry looked as though it was getting back on its feet, with the release of Tenet and Bill & Ted Face the Music in August, but it’s now facing another series of setbacks with the risk of a second COVID spike on the horizon. Over the last week, a number of highly-anticipated films have faced further delays, from Marvel’s Black Widow (originally slated for May 2020 release) and Eternals (originally February 2021), to The King’s Man and Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story remake – which has been pushed back by a whole year. Not all hope is lost however – films like Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch and James Bond’s No Time to Die are finally arriving in theatres later this year, along with Gal Gadot pictures Wonder Woman 1984 and Death on the Nile – Kenneth Branaugh’s second turn as iconic detective Hercule Poirot. Here’s everything you need to know about the remaining films set to release in 2020, and all those coming up next year.
