2024 is all packed with some very promising movies, and we have a lot of titles to scour through. Ringing in the new year should include some next-level movies to grace the screens of theatres. Needless to say, film critics and geeks would have their work cut out for them. Here are the 5 most anticipated releases of 2024.
5. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga
What gets better than 3 Mad Max films? Another Mad Max film. Furiosa’s trailer promises us the usual post-apocalyptic desert madness, but is also an origin story for the titular character. The previous installation starred Charlize Theron, and this one will be played by Anya Taylor Joy. Taylor-Joy’s casting is truly a surprising move, but in the best of ways. She has a portfolio of a series of stunning performances, it will be exciting to see how she slips into Furiosa’s character. Also joining is Chris Hemsworth, this time as the bad guy. Jam-packed with action and madness, Furiosa is set to release in May of 2024.
4. Beetlejuice 2:
The iconic horror-comedy finally has a sequel, set to release next year. Beetlejuice 2 has all the original actors reprising their roles, along with the talented Jenna Ortega this time. It is truly exciting to see what Tim Burton does with this sequel, considering the painstaking gap of 24 years between itself and the original. There are no plausible synopses as to what Beetlejuice 2 will entail, which adds more to the excitement. It is a Tim Burton film after all; expect a good dose of crazy in the film.
3. Dune: Part Two
The highly-anticipated sequel to Dune is set to release on March of 2024 sating the curious minds of fans. House Atreides now, under Paul’s leadership, will fight with the Fremen against the Empire. Villenevue has already added to the expectations from the sequel, claiming it is definitely better. The trailer sets a much larger stage for the movie, with the young king fighting the good fight. Paul and Chani’s relationship seems to be very promising, as does the Austine Butler-played Feyd-Rautha. The stakes are definitely high – with a sandworm, or three – this time, as Paul navigates his future and visions. Dune: Part Two will be in cinemas March 1st, 2024.
2. Joker: Folie À Deux
All people could talk about in 2019 was Joker, and Joaquin Phoenix. Everywhere the movie went, it picked up some huge awards. Phoenix reprises the role, but what surprised fans was the casting of Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn. Quinn has already been portrayed to near perfection by Margot Robbie, so it would be wonderful to see what Gaga brings to the character. The madness is double this time, as both the characters and the film are set to blow the audience’s mind in the fall of 2024.
- Deadpool 3
It is no surprise that Deadpool 3 is the most anticipated movie of 2024. After leaving a slew of clues in its post credits scene, Deadpool 3 is building on a bombshell of a cameo from Deadpool 2. Deadpool is set to appear with Wolverine in another fight, after the former very kindly asked him to – even in real life. The movie might be the surprise second wind for Marvel, as both characters are and actors are gold standards in their leagues. Despite being hit by a lot of delays due to the strikes, Deadpool 3 is now slated to release in May of 2024.
