Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
So far, the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) has failed to make anywhere near as much of a splash when compared to Marvel’s offering. Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman have failed to live up to their potential. It’s hoped that Bird of Prey can deliver where these have failed. Following-on from Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) has left the Joker. Now she joins forces with other vigilante’s – Black Canary, Huntress, and Renee Montoya – to protect a young girl in peril.
The King’s Man
The King’s Man will be the first British spy-thriller released in 2020, but almost certainly it won’t be the biggest (see further down this list for that). Co-written and produced by Mathew Vaughn, the movie acts as a prequel to the Kingsman film series, which stemmed from the comic book title of the same name. This time around, it’s set around the First World War and sees the formation of the spy agency.
A Quiet Place: Part II
John Krasinski returns to direct his wife, Emily Blunt, in a sequel to the smash-hit horror movie. The trailer suggests the film will explore the origins of the nasties introduced in the first film and given the genius of the original, we’re well and truly hyped for this sequel. Also: people talk this time and Cillian Murphy is in it.
We’ve already penciled in Disney’s live-action Mulan as a smash hit, not least given it’s bound to make bank in China thanks to its huge list of Chinese acting talent. The trailer looks stunning and the classic story should translate brilliantly to the big screen.
No Time to Die
James Bond is back. Well, nearly. The 25th installment of the 007 series is set to be released on April 3, meaning there isn’t that long to wait. Daniel Craig returns for his fifth appearance as the British spy. At this stage, there isn’t too much information about the title’s plot but we do know it’s faced plenty of difficulties in the early stages of production. Work started on the title in 2016 and its since seen a number of writers and directors pull their involvement, including Danny Boyle and John Hodge.
