10 New Movies Bound To Become Classics

Future icons of the big screen.

Palm Springs

The last couple years have been undeniably tough for everyone, but in spite of the obstacles, movies have still been coming out at a rapid rate to keep us company. Not all of them have been very good (looking at you, Red Notice), but others have been so well-received and affecting that they're sure to be remembered as a classic in time.

Whether it's an innovative sci-fi comedy, a twisted fantasy epic, or a searing drama about a challenging social issue, the following movies all have the potential to become timeless additions to cinema's ever-expanding catalogue of favourites.

Of course, "classic" is a hard term to define when it comes to the movies, and there's no doubt some of these films have their critics, but there can be no doubt that each of them have handled their subject matter, genre or performances so well that many will be thinking about them for years and years to come.

With that, here are 10 movies destined to become classics. From family animations to tear-jerking dramas and inventive horrors, there's something here for everyone...

10. Palm Springs

Palm Springs

A recent surprise hit, Palm Springs is a modern take on the Groundhog Day formula, throwing two wedding guests (Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti) into a twisting time-loop that causes them to relive the same awful day over and over again.

Thanks in equal measure to its relatable characters, hysterical humour and key performances, Palm Springs struck a major chord with audiences, and made it clear that it is in fact possible to do something new with a well-worn concept.

Managing to be at once a warm rom-com and an intelligent sci-fi flick, it's sure to go down as one of the most refreshingly original and good-natured romantic comedies of the last twenty years, and one fans will happily - and ironically - be returning to for a long, long time. A lot like Groundhog Day, really.
