My Most Anticipated Films in 2021

Update: Morbius has now been delayed again, and won’t be released until January 2022.

2020 was a weird year for movies. I expect 2021 will be a bit more normal, but time will tell. Looking ahead to the year to come, here are the top ten films I’m interested in, from least to most anticipated:

10. Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Tom “Bane” Hardy returns as Eddie Brock/Venom, this time going up against Woody Harrelson as serial killer Cletus Kasady, AKA Carnage. Andy “Gollum” Serkis directs. I really liked the first film, especially the dynamic between Brock and Venom. Here’s hoping this one’s as good.

9. Boss Level

Groundhog Day redone as an action pic. Mel Gibson is the baddy. I really liked Edge of Tomorrow, which was Groundhog Day as a science fiction film. I’m not sure Boss Level will be as good, but it looks like it should be fun.

8. Tomorrow War

Science fiction film with Chris “Starlord” Pratt and Yvonne “Sarah” Strahovski.

7. Bliss

Selma Hyack is a scientist experimenting with drugs/virtual reality. Owen Wilson is the subject of her experiments. Looks trippy.

6. Nobody

Bob “Saul” Odenkirk is a family man with a past in this action flick written by the writer of John Wick.

5. Chaos Walking

Daisy “Rae” Ridley lands on a planet of men. Tom “Spidey” Holland is a man whose thoughts appear outside his body. Mads “Hannibal” Mickelson is the baddy.

4. Antlers

Guilermo De Torro horror film about a wendigo. Looks creepy.

3. The Matrix 4

I love the Matrix, like Reloaded, and find Revolutions watchable. Lana Warshowski returns for this forth instalment, as do Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, though sadly neither Lawrence Fishburn nor Hugo Weaving. I hope this is good.

2. Morbius

Jared Leto plays the Spider-man villain, the “living vampire”. Jared Harris costars, with Matt “The Doctor” Smith as the bad guy.

1. Dune

The greatest science fiction novel of all time returns to the screen for a third time. Denis Villeeuve, who directed the gorgeous but somewhat unsatisfying sequel to Blade Runner directs. I hope this is better than the David Lynch version, which I like, but is a pale reflection of the book.

  1. I’ve heard of almost none of those. I worked a stint at The Golem Press, and for that reason am attracted to Golem movies. “The Golem” stands head and shoulders above its 1920 predecessor, and you don’t have to be Jewish to really dig out on it. Please keep nostalgic heathens informed of Canadian movies–or even movies filmed in Canada.
