2019 is in the books and now it’s time to start the clock on 2020! Good news… it’s setting up to be another amazing year for film! Below is a nice sized list of movies that I’m really looking forward to seeing this year and the best part? It’s just a scale of what’s to come… these are just the ones we know of!
Funny thing about 2020? There doesn’t seem to be a franchise tentpole or staple at the end of the year, at least as we speak. Obviously the last months of the year are stacked with award winning movies, but the last few years have had Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), Aquaman (2018) & Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019). There’s nothing like that scheduled for 2020. I guess the good news is that the end of 2021 will (hopefully) finally see the release of the sequel to Avatar. We need that as soon as possible.
