1. Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
If DC Black — a shared universe of edgy comic book movies that’s purportedly being launched by Warner Bros. after Joker’s billion-dollar success — turns out to be a thing, let’s remember who really instigated this particular party. It’s all about the slightly-touched former psychologist who made us love Suicide Squad: Harley Quinn. So it’s little surprise that Harley’s solo movie, which turns a spotlight on the Birds of Prey, Harley’s femme force and a formidable gang of super-vigilantes, is IMDb’s most anticipated of 2020. Now we just have to wait and see if HQ can best her ex at the global box office.
2. Sonic the Hedgehog
It’s impossible to talk about Sonic the Hedgehog without mentioning the incredible transformation our favorite spinning speedster underwent following his first trailer. The fan feedback was louder than Doctor Robotnik’s choices in moustache styling when SEGA’s mascot debuted, causing the studio to pump the brakes. The creative team heard the feedback and faster than you-know-who pushed back the release to 2020 to give Sonic a whole new look. Armed with a fresh, mostly game-accurate style, there’s only one thing left for the movie to do: Go fast. Ariwokakaki
3. Top Gun: Maverick
Tom Cruise wowed Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this year when he debuted the trailer for Top Gun: Maverick. The trailer features some dazzling flight footage and hits all the ’80s nostalgia buttons that drive fans bananas, so there’s no surprise that this sequel—33 years after the original—is one of the most anticipated movies of 2020.
4. No Time to Die
Daniel Craig is back for his fifth and final outing as 007, and boy does it look like it will be a glorious last run. The first trailer gave us a look at the world weary former agent, forced out of retirement to jump off bridges, chase down villains, engage in car combat and save the world, all while looking as sharp as a James Bond should. We’re equally excited for Rami Malek as the new supervillain: Safin. Fans are already theorizing that he may actually be a throwback to 007’s first villain, Dr. No. Mp3 Download
5. Black Widow
Rumors had abounded of a Black Widow solo film ever since the character made her debut in 2010’s Iron Man 2, but following Avengers: Endgame fans were left wondering if that was the last we’d see of Natasha Romanoff. Fortunately, it wasn’t long before Kevin Feige and Scarlett Johansson took the stage at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2019 to announce that Black Widow was officially releasing in 2020. Details are still scarce about when exactly the film takes place, but whatever the era, we’re ready to give our favorite super-spy the sendoff she deserves.
Disney’s getting serious with their next live-action remake: Mulan. The studio reacted to the Twitterati’s #MakeMulanRight demands by focusing the story on Mulan herself — sharply turning away from a spec script that focused on a white merchant who goes to war to protect her. Reworking a beloved tale was a success for The Jungle Book, and we’re thinking director Niki Caro, star Liu Yifei, and Mulan’s entire creative team have taken their time crafting a story that will appeal to audiences who are seeking greater representation on the big screen.
7. Wonder Woman 1984
We are so ready for Gal Gadot’s return as Wonder Woman, and, as Wonder Woman 1984 made it onto the Most Anticipated Movies of 2020 list, it seems IMDb users are as well. Although we absolutely loved Diana Prince’s origin story from Themyscira to the frontlines of WWI, we can’t wait to see our favorite demigod kicking ass against the vibrant backdrop of the “Greed decade.” Bring on the New Wave music, VCRs, and big hair!
After masterfully helming the follow-up to Blade Runner, Denis Villeneuve has set his sights on reimagining Frank Herbert’s “Dune” the iconic sci-fi novel about noble houses, political intrigue, an intergalactic drug trade, and yes, giant worms. The impressive cast includes: Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Zendaya as Chani, Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides, and Javier Bardem as Stilgar. IMDb users seem to be just as excited as we are: traffic to the Dune title page propelled the reboot to the No. 8 spot on the list of most anticipated films of 2020.
9. The King’s Man
Writer-director Matthew Vaughn turns back time on his Kingsman franchise to look at what spy life was like before Eggsy and Harry. Set during WWI, Vaughn has said his prequel tale will be a slightly more serious affair with major-scale action sequences and an epic flair that will bring classics such as Lawrence of Arabia and The Man Who Would Be King to mind. Something tells us that Harris Dickinson, who first got noticed in Beach Rats and enjoyed success in 2019 with “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, might have a Taron Egerton moment in 2020.
10. Fast & Furious 9
There was plenty of interest for the tenth (!) film in the Fast and the Furious franchise in 2019 (Did fans not get their fill with Hobbs & Shaw?). With a huge returning cast (we don’t have space here to list them all) and director Justin Lin returning, engines will rev even faster soon enough: star Vin Diesel recently revealed on Instagram that the first trailer for the new film will drop in January.
