List: Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2021

List: Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2021

This week on Episode 414 of the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed our Top 5 most anticipated films of 2021. It’s a new year and that means there are a lot of new movies for us to look forward to this year. At least, we hope so, fingers crossed. We don’t know what 2021 has in store for us, but again, if we are being optimistic, it could end up being a really solid year for movies. It could also end up being a bit of a cluster since so many moved from last year to this year, so it’ll be interesting to see what shifts in mainstream entertainment, or perhaps we are simply gifted with more this year. As of now though, No Time to Die, Black Widow, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Eternals, Morbius, Dune, In the Heights, West Side Story, A Quiet Place: Part II, Top Gun: Maverick, Candyman, Coming 2 America, F9, and a few others are expected to be released after moving from last year. Additionally, 2021 is set to see Godzilla vs Kong, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the Untitled Spider-Man Sequel, Mission: Impossible 7, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, The Suicide Squad, Space Jam 2, The Matrix 4, and maybe even Sherlock Holmes 3. And that’s just the bigger stuff. Let alone all of the awards players and indie films that have moved and are interacting with original 2021 content. Hopefully this just means we are getting gifted with great content this year, which could make for a rich year for film, even if a bit convoluted. So, we had a lot to discuss here and it was fun talking about what the year has to offer.
