2020 is year and with it comes another promising year of films. I’m particularly excited since there are a great number of women-led films both in front of and behind the camera in 2020. Since it’s early in the year, none of the smaller, independent films are really known until the Sundance Film Festival later this month, so this list will mainly be bigger films. I will also do a Top 10 of 2019 list, but that won’t be up until I have seen 1917, which is a major awards contender this year.
So here is what I’m most looking forward to at the moment for the upcoming year with some honorable mentions that go out to Godzilla vs. Kong, Eternals, and Bob’s Burgers who didn’t quite make the list.
Jumanji: The Next Level follows Spencer (Alex Wolff), Fridge (Ser’Darius Blain), Martha (Morgan Turner), and Britney (Madison Iseman) during their winter break of their freshman year in college. Spencer, who is struggling more than his friends in college life, decides to go back into the Jumanji game to re-gain some confidence as Dr. Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson). However, the game glitches and Spencer’s grandfather (Danny DeVito) and his friend (Danny Glvoer) find themselves stuck in the game.
Hobbs & Shaw is a spin-off of the Fast & Furious franchise that centers on Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson). They must team up to stop Brixton (Idris Elba), a genetically modified villain, who is after a virus that can kill thousands of people.
Bonnie and Clyde revolves around the a small town girl who meets and falls in love with a criminal. They start their romance together by robbing banks. When Clyde’s family decides to join in on the fun, the Barrow gang becomes legendary, but how long can they outrun the police before they finally get caught?
John Wick: Parabellum takes place with John Wick on the run now that he is excommunicated from The High Table. Now John Wick must fight through and survive multiple assassination attempts as a consequence for his past actions.
Stuber is a buddy cop film revolving around Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) as an Uber driver who finds himself driving around an intense and intimidating cop named Vic (Dave Bautista) who just had lasik surgery and got a lead of a case that has haunted him since his partner’s death.
Captain Marvel centers around Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) a Kree soldier who ends up on Earth to stop the villainous skrulls – a race of alien shapeshifters. She must work with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and an old friend named Maria (Lashana Lynch) to find out what her past is.
This film has a ton of controversy over it which isn’t rare for comic book movies, mainly from fanboys who aren’t a fan of Brie Larson or don’t want to see a female superhero on screen, but I think it’s safe to say to Captain Marvel beat the odds. It’s enjoyable, and while it may not be the best MCU film, I think it’s definitely worth checking out.
Bumblebee surrounds the Autobot, Bumblebee, as he crash lands on earth and camouflages as a Volkswagen. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) finds this yellow, beaten Volkswagen on her 18th birthday and finds that it’s not the car she thought it was.
Bumblebee is hands down the best Transformers film. I am not a fan of the Transformers films at all, I stopped watching them after the one that has Patrick Dempsey and I have no desire to see any of the Mark Wahlberg ones. Hailee Steinfeld is amazing here and her relationship with Bumblebee is what makes the movie. The story is reminiscent of a girl and her dog and has several of the same beats as E.T.
