Matt’s Most Anticipated Movies of 2020, Late Mid-Year Recap

Top Gun: Maverick

Oh hey there. It’s been a weird year and I haven’t been writing again. 2020 has been a challenge, to say the least, and it’s seemed like there have been bigger things going on, and also the ol’ day job has been a little on the intense side.

But things are finally calming down a little so I am back to writing a little. A good place to start is with the films I was looking forward to this year because, well, most of them aren’t coming out this year anymore. Theatres here in Vancouver are re-opening in a limited way, but even if new movies were coming to them (which they aren’t) I don’t think I would feel comfortable going to see them yet. Or for the rest of the year.

So let’s take a look at what I was looking forward to, and see where that leaves us for the rest of the year.

Matt’s Ten Most Anticipated Films of 2020

Birds of Prey

Every year is a good year for movies but every year there are always those few you are really looking forward to. Here is my list of those movies.

Will these end up being my favourite movies of the year? Who knows! Probably not! The only movies that we know anything about as far away as December are the big-budget blockbusters with marketing pockets so deep we can start hearing about them now. There are hundreds of movies per year that don’t have that.

This list should probably be re-titled “most anticipated big-budget films”, really.

In any event, here is the list. See if you can guess the first entry.

Awesome: Robin Wright & Connie Neilsen will return for Justice League

Good news everyone! In an interview with The LA Times Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen let slip that they will be appearing in Justice League. And by “let slip” I’m pretty sure I mean “did their part in an ongoing marketing campaign for the film”.

‘Wonder Woman’ Review: DC made a good movie and I am SO HAPPY

It’s been a long four years since Man of Steel premiered and started the new DCEU shared universe. It has been a universe of muted colours and asshole heroes, and one that has been hard to be optimistic about future entries in, but I am happy to report that Wonder Woman is a great movie and that you should definitely see it.

Warner Brothers’ 2020 Vision – Harry Potter & LEGO Trilogies and a Justice League Ten Pack

warner_bros

Warner Bros. had a lot to say at their Time Warner investors meeting today, and most of it was “YOU WANT MOVIES? I’LL SHOW YOU MOVIES!”  CEO Kevin Tsujihara gave us a timeline of what Warner Bros. will be working on over the next 6 years.  Buckle up (and maybe submit a resume), because it’s one hell of a breakneck pace they’re working with.  One that’s not going to leave much room for error, and I would assume means we won’t be seeing Ben Affleck direct movies for a little while.  And that isn’t the only thing we won’t be seeing.

Warner Bros Blinks: ‘Batman v Superman’ Moved to March 2016; 9 More Release Dates Announced from 2016 to 2020

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Remember how a few months back we figured out that both DC and Marvel had movies scheduled for the same weekend in May 2016 and it turned out that it was going to be Batman v Superman opening at the same time as Captain America 3 and neither camp said they’d consider moving their movie? Well turns out that Warner Brothers and DC have changed their mind and moved Batman v Superman ahead two months to March 2016 and announced 9 new release dates to boot.
