50 Most Anticipated Movies Of 2021

2021 looks set to make up for 2020.

2020 was a more unpredictable year for cinema than anyone could've ever predicted, leading to countless huge movies being pushed into 2021 as Hollywood waited for cinemas to re-open and patrons become comfortable with sitting in a busy cinema once again.

Plenty of uncertainty still remains, of course, though movies can only be delayed for so long before they become a financial burden for studios, and so it's safe to say that, one way or another, most if not all of these films will surely see the light of day in 2021.

And given the sizable backlog of tentpole films delayed out of 2020, 2021 has the potential to be an absolutely stacked - even downright crowded - year for movies.

These are the 50 films which, whether hitting cinemas, going straight to streaming, or perhaps experimenting with a theatrical + PVOD hybrid model, are due to hit our screens over the next 12 months.

They range from splashy, mega-budget blockbusters to small-scale dramas you absolutely cannot miss.

It goes without saying that the release dates are all wildly subject to change, but each has film fans eagerly awaiting the moment they can finally set eyes upon them...

50. Jungle Cruise

Jungle Cruise Jack Whitehall Dwayne Johnson

Disney's new adventure romp Jungle Cruise will test just how much audiences have missed Dwayne Johnson on the big screen, and a family-friendly dose of big-budget mayhem just might be what viewers will be craving in summer 2021.

Johnson stars as a riverboat captain embarking on a perilous adventure to locate the Tree of Life, teaming up with a scientist (Emily Blunt) and her brother (Jack Whitehall) to get the job done.

This certainly won't be seeking any Oscars in 2022, but with the reliable Jaume Collet-Serra (Non-Stop, The Shallows) at the helm, it should be fittingly breezy escapist entertainment.

Release Date: July 30
