The 27 Most Anticipated Movies of 2022
We can’t believe it’s already almost April either. But there’s still a lot of 2022 ahead of us and we thought about taking a renewed look at our selection of some of 2022’s most anticipated films, especially considering the calendar of releases has changed a lot in the last few weeks.
Bear in mind that nothing is set in stone, so this isn’t a comprehensive selection. New titles will pop up as the new year unfolds. Plus, most of these titles are tentpole movies and/or sequels or adaptations from pre-existing franchises. Expect the year 2022 to be full of those, but also keep in mind that there’ll also be a fair share of must-see indie movies as the year progresses. It’s hard to know if 2022 will be the year that cinema-going returns to normal, or if we’ll all still be doing a lot of streaming at home for certain titles, while opting for the big screen for others.
And yes, some of the titles on this list are movies that we were already looking forward to watching back in 2019 — ahem, Top Gun: Maverick .
Winter 2022: Movies That Have Already Premiered
The 355 (January 7): This action-espionage ensemble stars Jessica Chastain as a CIA agent who joins forces with a German agent (Diane Kruger), a former MI6 ally who specializes in computers (Lupita Nyong’o) and a Colombian psychologist (Penélope Cruz) on a mission to recover a top-secret weapon. Bingbing Fan plays the mysterious woman who follows their every move. The 355 is now available on Peacock and on video on demand (VOD).
Scream (January 14): This is the fifth installment of the Scream franchise. Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette return to their iconic roles alongside newcomers Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding and Jenna Ortega. Twenty-five years after the brutal murders that terrified the small town of Woodsboro, a new killer dons the Ghostface mask and targets a group of teenagers. Scream is now available on Paramount+ and VOD.
Moonfall (February 4): Master of disaster and climate change advocate Roland Emmerich co-writes and directs this film that sees the Moon on the brink of colliding with Earth and annihilating our world. Halle Berry plays a former astronaut who partners with another astronaut (Patrick Wilson) and a conspiracy theorist (John Bradley from Game of Thrones ). Together they’ll try to save humanity as they discover our Moon is not what we think it is.
Death on the Nile (February 11): This new adaptation of a classic Agatha Christie novel has Kenneth Branagh directing and playing the lead detective, Hercule Poirot — the Irish filmmaker already starred in and directed Murder on the Orient Express (2017). This one has been postponed several times due not only to the pandemic but also because a prominent role in the movie is played by Armie Hammer. The movie debuts on Hulu and HBO Max on March 29.
Uncharted (February 18): Based on the eponymous action-adventure video game series , the movie stars Tom Holland ( Spider-Man: Homecoming ) as Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as Victor Sullivan. They both embark on an epic international adventure — Barcelona is prominently featured in the trailer — in the pursuit of “the greatest treasure never found.” Meanwhile, Nathan starts discovering new details about his long-lost brother.
The Batman (March 4): Robert Pattinson dons the cape and the pointy-eared mask in this new reboot of the bat franchise. Matt Reeves ( Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ) co-writes and directs the movie, which also stars Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, Jeffrey Wright and John Turturro. Don’t miss our article on the hidden details in The Batman ’s first trailer and the movie’s inception and our full review of The Batman .
Turning Red (March 11): Pixar’s first 2022 title is directed by Domee Shi, who won an Oscar for her short film Bao (2018). The movie follows the story of 13-year-old Mei Lee (voiced by Rosalie Chiang), who turns into a giant red panda every time she gets excited. Sandra Oh voices Mei Lee’s overbearing mom, Ming. Read our review of Turning Red here .
Deep Water (March 18): Based on the novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith and starring Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck, this is one of the titles that has been postponed several times because of COVID-19. De Armas and Affleck play a married couple who have an arrangement to keep their marriage afloat. But when their games turn into murder, things get messier. Highsmith’s source material offers a portrayal of the fake veneer covering American suburbia — let’s hope the film does too.
The Lost City (March 25): Sandra Bullock returns to her comedy roots starring in this action-adventure where she plays Loretta Sage. She’s a popular romance-adventure writer on a promotional tour with Alan (Channing Tatum), the model who has always portrayed Loretta’s main character: the hero Dash. When Loretta is kidnapped by a billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe) who wants to find an ancient lost city’s treasure from one of her novels, Alan decides to take the lead and rescue her as Dash would do. They end up in the middle of the jungle needing to work together to stay alive and find the ancient treasure before it’s lost forever.
Spring Movies 2022
Morbius (April 1): Set in the same universe as Venom , Morbius stars the chameleonic Jared Leto as Dr. Michael Morbius. He suffers from a rare blood disease and, while trying to find a cure for himself and others, he ends up transformed into someone with an urge for blood and other vampiric tendencies. Watching the method actor Leto transform himself into a mindless creature may prove to be one of the most appealing aspects of the film.
Ambulance (April 8): Michael Bay produces and directs this film starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II ( Candyman ) as Will, a vet desperate to pay for his wife’s medical bills. His adoptive brother, Dany (Jake Gyllenhaal), is a professional criminal. When Will asks him for help, Dany enlists Will in a $32 million bank robbery. The two of them end up in an adrenaline-fueled chase through the streets of Los Angeles, inside of an ambulance driven by EMT Cam (Eiza González).
Downton Abbey: A New Era (May 20): First there were the six seasons of the television drama about a family of British aristocrats, their estate and the servants who allowed for everything to run smoothly. Then there was a 2019 movie too, and now it’s time for a film sequel: A New Era . Julian Fellowes, the creator of the show, returns once more here as the writer. And yes, the good news is that despite the dire health diagnosis the Dowager Countess revealed to her granddaughter Mary (Michelle Dockery) at the end of the previous movie, Maggie Smith returns to A New Era to hopefully dispense fresh doses of perfectly delivered puns.
Top Gun: Maverick (May 27): The original Top Gun opened in 1986. Now, this sequel that’s been decades in the making follows Tom Cruise’s Maverick after he’s served more than 30 years as a pilot in the Navy. When he has to train a group of Top Gun graduates for an impossible mission, Maverick meets Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), the son of his long-lost friend Goose. Expect spectacular aerial sequences and a lot of need for speed.
Jurassic World: Dominion (June 10): Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return for this sixth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise and sequel to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018). Franchise originals Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern also star in this movie. Lightyear (June 17): Who was the Space Ranger who inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy from the Toy Story franchise? Chris Evans voices Buzz in this origin story that Pixar describes as a sci-fi action-adventure film.
Elvis (June 24): Musical heavy-weight Baz Luhrmann ( Moulin Rouge ) directs and co-writes this biopic starring Austin Butler ( The Carrie Diaries ) as music legend Elvis Presley. The film also stars Tom Hanks as Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker. “The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America,” reads Warner Bros.’ official synopsis of the film.
Summer Movies 2022
Minions: The Rise of Gru (July 1): Allow me the yellow indulgence since I’ve been a fan of these adorable polyglot creatures since I first saw Despicable Me in a movie theater back in 2010. This second prequel of the Minions origin story — and fifth installment of the Despicable Me franchise — is set in the 1970s and follows a 12-year-old Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) and his faithful army of yellow sidekick followers.
Thor: Love and Thunder (July 8): This fourth Thor movie — the second one helmed by the New Zealander Taika Waititi — sees Natalie Portman returning as astrophysicist and Thor’s ex, Jane Foster. Waititi, who’s also taken writing duties for this film, has teased at its romantic components . The movie will also feature Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and Christian Bale.
Nope (July 22): After Get Out and Us , here comes the next psychological horror film written and directed by Academy Award-winner Jordan Peele. Details are still very much under wraps for this movie, which stars Academy Award-winner Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun . You can read more about Nope and its enigmatic first trailer here .
Fall Movies 2022
Don’t Worry Darling (September 23): Olivia Wilde’s second feature film after she directed the outstanding Booksmart (2019) stars Florence Pugh and Harry Styles as a married couple living in a utopian experimental community in the 1950s. Pugh plays a housewife and someone who fears that the company her husband works for may be hiding something. The movie also stars Wilde alongside Chris Pine, Gemma Chan and Kiki Layne.
Spider-Man: Across Spider-Verse (Part One) (October 7): After the multiverse-set Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film and was lauded for its diverse representation — the movie stars Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) as an Afro-Latino kid who also happens to be Spider-Man — we really are looking forward to this Spider-Verse sequel. Not to mention, it’s one of several animated films we’re most excited about seeing this year.
Black Adam (October 21): This eleventh installment in the DC Extended Universe is directed by the Catalan filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra and stars Dwayne Johnson as the titular villain. Pierce Brosnan and Aldis Hodge also appear in this Johnson-starring vehicle that could see him become Shazam’s archenemy.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (November 11): Ryan Coogler returns as co-writer and director of the much-anticipated sequel to his Black Panther (2018), the first superhero film to be nominated for a coveted Best Picture nod at the Oscars. Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett reprise their roles from the original movie. The multi-talented Michaela Coel ( I May Destroy You ) will play a new role in this sequel. To honor the memory of the late Chadwick Boseman, who played Black Panther in the original film, Marvel has announced that this movie won’t recast the titular role . Also, Thor: Love and Thunder and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever aren’t the only two Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to be released in 2022. There’ll also be Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 6).
She Said (November 18): Maria Schrader ( Unorthodox ) directs this adaptation of Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor’s book in which they relate their New York Times investigation into Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment and abuse behavior. The exposé helped further the #MeToo movement. The film stars Zoe Kazan, Carey Mulligan, Patricia Clarkson and Andre Braugher.
Avatar 2 (December 16): Thirteen years after James Cameron introduced us to Pandora in Avatar , here comes the second installment of this story. Zoe Saldaña, Sam Worthington and Sigourney Weaver all return to Avatar 2 , alongside newcomers Kate Winslet, Vin Diesel and Michelle Yeoh. The franchise is expected to have five installments in total, with each new movie being released two years apart.
I Wanna Dance with Somebody (December 21): Naomi Ackie ( Small Axe ) plays the late singer Whitney Houston in this musical biopic that’s directed by Kasie Lemons ( Harriet ) and also stars Clarke Peters, Stanley Tucci and Nafessa Williams.

Sorry, But "Coco" Is The Best Pixar Movie Of All The Pixar Movies
I will die on this hill (and, I guess, end up in the Land of the Dead).
Hey, what's your favorite Pixar movie?
Sorry, that was a rhetorical question. Because if you said anything other than Coco , you're 100% wrong.
Yeah, that's right: coco is the best pixar movie ever made. toy story 2 more like toy story who wall-e i don't know her..
A lot of people are like, "OMG, the first 15 minutes of Up make me cry more than any movie ever made," and to them I say FALSE, because NOTHING will make you sob more than watching Mamá Coco sing "Remember Me."
I am a GROWN MAN, I am IN MY THIRTIES and this scene right here made me CRY like an ACTUAL TODDLER.
Wanna know another fun fact? Coco is the only Pixar movie...that is also a musical. Yeah, some of the other movies have songs, but not songs that the characters actually sing!
Oh, and one of those songs, "remember me," won a friggin' oscar., wait, i think coco won something else at the academy awards...hmm, lemme think...oh yeah, best animated feature..
And this ain't a "watch it once and move on" kind of movie, people. There are ~layers~. Like, consider this detail that the guitar had a gold tooth on the neck, hinting that it was Héctor's guitar all along!
Or the fact that the Land of the Dead has hidden skulls all over the place, like in the windows, light bulbs, and even the way the buildings are arranged.
This is all to say that yes, Coco is the best Pixar movie, and anyone who disagrees will be smacked with a shoe.

Similar to the feast of All Hallows Day or All Saints Day, Dia de Muertos (Translated “Day of the Dead”) is a Mexican holiday used to celebrate loved ones who have died. This is not a holiday of sadness, but rather a grand celebration, as it is believed that for one night, your ancestors wake up and celebrate with you. This holiday’s decoration uses lots of beautiful skeleton imagery (specifically the skull). Celebrated on November 1st.

Parent Review of Coco
- This is Pixar so the animation is top notch. Music is by Michael Giacchino, who is a favorite. The City of the Dead was astounding. Also, it has been stated previously that one of the hardest things to animate is someone playing a guitar, this movie definitely rose to that challenge.
- Coco is all about transformation, which gives you some really good opportunities for discussion.
- I was worried, Halfway through the movie. I could not see how to get a satisfactory ending out of a 12 year old jerk who can only think of himself, his unworthy hero, and his rigid unbending family. In, what I thought were, some unexpected and well done plot twists we do indeed arrive at a happy ending.
- I love the importance of family in this movie. All the highs and lows that come with that. It shows the importance of working together through hard times and being there for each other.
- I think one of the most important things this movie accomplished was showing off the culture of Dia de los Muertos. There are so many great conversation points brought up by the movie.
- What wrong things did Miguel do at the beginning of the movie ? Have you done something that your family did not want you to do?
- What good things did Miguel do throughout the movie?
- (For Parents) Parents and their teen and preteen children certainly sometimes have issues over goals. Neither the parents nor the children handle it very well. What went wrong? Ask your kids, What can I (or we) do to help you to set and work on life goals?
- What do you know about our family history? Are there things you would like to know more about?
- For preteens and teens – did Coco help you understand any of your friends better?
- How do you honor your family members in your unit?

Coco ( 2017 )
Directed by: Lee Unkrich , Adrian Molina
Starring: Benjamin Bratt , Gael Garcia Bernal , Edward James Olmos , Alanna Ubach
Genres: Adventure , Animated , Comedy , Pixar
Question : Where does Hector get the photo of himself?
Answer: It is never really explained in the movie, but we could assume that whenever someone dies they keep whatever items they had on them. Hector may have had the photo on his person when he died.
Question : Why didn't the aunts just tell Miguel that Ernesto De La Cruz wasn't his grandfather when Miguel was rambling about it when he entered the Land of the Dead ?
Answer: The aunts may not actually know. Because his ancestor hated him so much, she may have talked about him very little in both the real world and the afterlife.
Answer: Because Miguel didn't unambiguously talk about his wrong assumption. In other words, he never said, "my grand-grandfather and Imelda's husband, Ernesto de la Cruz " (which is wrong). He only called him grand-grandfather and Imelda simply referred to him as a good-for-nothing musician. The aunts, uncles and the grandfather Julio all knew about Hector , as can be inferred from the reunion scene.
Question : When Miguel first meets Hector , Hector claims he used to work with Ernesto, who Miguel initially thought was his great-great grandfather. When Hector confronts Ernesto after Miguel first meets him, Hector reveals how Ernesto murdered him with poisoned wine. Why doesn't Hector tell Miguel that earlier when they first meet?
Answer: Because Hector didn't realise he had been poisoned until The scene where they meet. It is only after he sees the scene from Ernesto's movie that he puts it together.
Exactly. It's shown in the film that Hector , and other souls, believe he died from eating bad food. Hence his embarrassing nickname.
Question : After Miguel comes back to the land of the living, does the family believe that he went to the Land of the Dead ? And if not, then do they believe that Hector got murdered, since the letters to Coco prove that he was the writer of De la Cruz's songs? And if they believe, do they manage to prove this to the general public and that is why they hate him? Or do they just hate him because they discovered that he lied about writing his own songs?
Answer: It is never actually addressed what Miguel told his family about his adventure, so it can't be said whether or not they believe him. It would seem to make sense that he would tell them though, it was a pretty fantastic tale after all and I'm sure he would want to tell his family about it. It would also make sense that his family would believe his story, it's really the only way he could have known that Remember Me was a lullaby Hector used to sing to Coco. The letters Coco saved prove that Hector was the actual writer of De la Cruz's songs and it was later proven to the general public, hence the graffiti on De la Cruz's memorial and a memorial for Hector taking it's rightful place in town. It can also be reasonably assumed that the general public is aware that De la Cruz murdered Hector since the theft of the music and Hector's death go hand in hand. It wouldn't make much sense for people to hate De la Cruz so much if all they thought he did was take credit for his partner's music after his partner was already dead.
Question : After Chicharrón is forgotten and disappears, where does he go?
Answer: No one really knows, perhaps the 'true' afterlife, though that is entirely speculation.
Question : If Ernesto stole Hector 's guitar, why wasn't he cursed too?
Answer: The criteria for being cursed were never accurately established in the film. All we have is the words of the specialist: "You're cursed. [...] Dia de Los Muertos is the day of giving to the dead! You stole from the dead!" This seems to imply that the act of theft must have taken place on Dia de Los Muertos and the owner of the stolen object must have been dead.
Answer: In my opinion, I would say it may have been specified in Hector 's will that his guitar would go to Ernesto in the event of early death.
Answer: I think it has to do with blood relations.
Ernesto and Hector aren't related.
Question : Could someone please identify the character voiced by John Ratzenberger ?
Answer: Juan Ortodoncia - he's the one who gets to cross over to the Land of the Living because he's remembered by his dentist. It seems like he also still has braces on his teeth.
Question : Why didn't Miguel become cursed when he stole the chicken leg off the grave offering? Is that when Dante became cursed, since technically he ate the chicken leg so he stole it? Or is Dante just a spirit guide the whole time?
Answer: The chicken leg didn't belong to a dead person. Its legal owner was alive and well. The spirit of dead do not take possession of the offering. They take a spiritual copy of it.The legal owner of the guitar, however, was dead.
Answer: Miguel became cursed not just because he stole an offering, but because he stole from his family. Dante is always a spirit guide.
Answer: Clearly intent has something to do with it. When Miguel took the chicken leg, he wasn't intentionally "stealing" it. When he took the guitar, he knows he's stealing it. His intention is to borrow it, but he knows what he's doing is wrong.
Question : What happened to Ernesto after he was crushed by the bell in the Land of the Dead ?
Answer: It's been confirmed that he is still alive, so he'll continue to exist in the afterlife for as long as people remember him in the living world. And considering the "legacy" he left behind, I'd say he's going to remain in the public eye for a very, very long time.
The legacy was actually Hector 's and everyone in the living world found out and decided to forget him.
Answer: I believe he died the final death because his skeleton body was presumably crushed. Hope this helps.
Also, a sign with "Forget" has been put on Ernesto's tomb in the living world, which would speed his demise if no-one remembered him.
I think he would suffer a worse fate of being held under the great weight of the bell until he is "forgotten" in the living world. Seeing as people hate him now in the dead world they may leave him there.
Answer: He was trapped inside the bell. He was not crushed. He was probably able to get out but, the family was able to escape before he got out. Also someone probably needed to help get him out.
Ernesto is a murderer and when everyone found out, they hated him. There is absolutely no point in helping him.
Question : Why doesn't Miguel fall through the bridge like Hector ? Miguel doesn't have a picture on the table stand.
Answer: Miguel isn't dead yet. He's slowly fading away the more he stays in the land of the dead and will eventually be stuck there just like everyone else. Until he fades away he can still walk on the bridge but he needs a blessing from a family member in the land of the dead to actually get back.
While yes he is not dead, the rest of the movie becomes entirely pointless since this means he could have just walked back. Security wouldn't have stopped him because he is alive so they know that it is urgent for him to cross the bridge.
He can't just walk back. He can walk on the bridge but he can't actually get back to the land of the living unless he gets a blessing from a family member.
It was Miguel taking the guitar that put him in his dead/not dead state, not crossing the bridge. Miguel was already only able to be seen and interact with the dead while they were all still in the cemetery on the living side of the bridge. It stands to reason then that crossing back to where he started wouldn't help.
Question : What discovery does Miguel make while in the sinkhole with Hector ?
Answer: That Hector is his great-great-grandfather, not Ernesto de la Cruz .
Question : What chord does Miguel strum in De La Cruz's mausoleum after he steals his guitar?
Question : When you look at Abuelita's ofrenda, the bottom row has more pictures of family members. Where were they during Día de Los Muertos? They couldn't have gone to the true afterlife since they were on the ofrenda right?
Answer: I believe they are in-laws. Hector said when trying to cross the petal bridge when impersonating Frida that he was probably on lots of ofrendas. So they could be visiting other family ofrendas. Also we saw that the riveira family didn't cross the bridge all at once as the twins came later so they possibly crossed over before the Miguel situation happened. Also when they went back to see Mama Imelda , they went back to an office where a lot of people were being held up like it was customs. So they also possibly could have affairs to sort out before being able to cross. But as the Riveira family made no attempt to contact them when looking for Miguel as they needed a family's blessing I would stick to the assumption that they are in-laws.
Answer: They simply didn't appear on the screen, and the film wasn't about them. That's all. By the way: "Abuelita" means "grandmother" in Spanish. The character's first name was Elena. (You probably know her last name was Rivera).
Answer: These other ancestors may only be faces on the family's altar. Their photographs may still be put up, but if there are no anecdotes to remember them by, their names and faces may not be strong enough to count as being remembered.
More for Coco
Other mistake : When Miguel is singing "Un poco loco" on stage, he goes out of range of the mic, but his voice is amplified.
Ernesto de la Cruz : I have to sing. It's not just in me. It is me.
Trivia : The Luxo ball can be seen in Frida's place.

About The Author
I appreciate you gathering resources to teach with this movie. Please do fix the link for “Fun to pair with this movie” that leads to a Cinco de Mayo activity. Dia de Muertos and Cinco de Mayo have nothing to do with one another. Gracias 🙂
Hi Lisa, Thanks for your feedback.
While we understand that Dia de Muertos and Cinco de Mayo have nothing to do with one another, we have many homeschooling parents and teachers that plan out similar unit studies at one time and we get searches on those topics together.
We decided to include the Cinco de Mayo link as a crossover topic on the post since many people do related/similar study planning like this. We wanted to make it easier for the people who have interest in planning like that.

Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.”
