Cinemablend has posted an incomplete list of movies coming in 2020. Visit their post for the specific release dates, I’ve shortened to the month only since these dates are bound to change and move around anyway. More new movies will be added and others dropped, this is really premature at this point.
I’ve added commentary to some and bolded the movies I’ll definitely be adding to our “looking forward to” watchlist. Am sure there will be a lot more we’re interested in, but some of the info is so sparse at this point, just a title alone isn’t enough.
JANUARY 2020 (12 movies)
- The Grudge
- The Informer
- Like A Boss
- My Spy
- Bad Boys For Life
- The Voyage of Doctor Doolittle – starring Robert Downey Jr.

- The Turning
- Gretel & Hanzel
- The Rhythm Section
FEBRUARY 2020 (15 movies)
- Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of one Harley Quinn)
- Peter Rabbit 2
- Fantasy Island – if only the original Tattoo and Mr. Roarke were still alive!
- The King’s Men
- The Photograph
- Sonic The Hedgehog – loved playing the game, but not sure what kind of movie this will be. Historically most videogame movies are just godawful. Curious, nonetheless.
- What About Love
- Bloodshot – starring Vin Diesel
- The Call of the Wild
- My Boyfriend’s Meds
- Bad Trip
- The Invisible Man
- The Whistlers
MARCH 2020 (8 movies)

- I Still Believe
- A Quiet Place: Part II
APRIL 2020 (5 movies)
- The Love Birds
- The New Mutants
- No Time To Die – a new James Bond movie, yay!
- Trolls World Tour – grandchildren will probably be interested in this one, and Ozzy Osbourne voicing King Thrash? Ok, that tickles my curiosity.
MAY 2020 (10 movies)
- Black Widow – Marvel movie. A first for this character, I believe.
- Legally Blonde 3 – the first one was funny, second one not so much, marginally interested in the third
- Scooby – is this another live action Scooby Doo? It’s from Warner Brothers, so my guess is yes … I’m somewhat interested. Scooby rocks!
- (untitled) Saw film – another Saw!?!?! Ok, sign me up!
- The Woman in the Window
- Fast & Furious 9 – from a popularity standpoint, this franchise has been huge
- The Spongebob Movie
- Artemis Fowl
JUNE 2020 (6 movies)
- Wonder Woman 1984 – the 80s are a perfect time for Diana/Wonder Woman/Gal Gadot to return!
- Candyman – Clive Barker knows how to do visceral horror, this is promising.
- Staten Island
- In The Heights
- Top Gun: Maverick
JULY 2020 (10 movies)
- Free Guy – Ryan Reynolds as an NPC (Non Player Character) in a video game? This is a fresh plot for a game-centered movie.
- Minions: The Rise of Gru
- Ghostbusters 2020 – if only Bill Murray and Dan Akroyd would come back … or will they? Akroyd is listed as the writer, hmm?
- (untitled) Purge sequel – some of the Purge series has been intriguing, yes, am interested!
- Bob’s Burgers: The Movie
- Jungle Cruise
- Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar
AUGUST 2020 (6 movies)
- The Empty Man
- Escape Room 2
- The One and Only Ivan
- Bill & Ted Face The Music – these rock and roll high schoolers from San Demis have needed their trilogy completed — excellent!
SEPTEMBER 2020 (6 movies)
- Monster Hunter – based on the popular video game. Looks like several movies in 2020 based on videogames.
- The Conjuring 3
- Without Remorse
- Last Night in Soho
- The Many Saints of Newark
- Praise This
OCTOBER 2020 (7 movies)
- BIOS – live action or animated? See Tom Hanks is in this one, so that’s a definite interest.
- Venom 2
- Death on the Nile
- Snake Eyes – a GI Joe flick
- Halloween Kills – Jamie Lee Curtis is back for another crack at Michael Myers? Get that white mask warmed up already!

- Everybody’s Talking About Jamie
NOVEMBER 2020 (7 movies)
- The Eternals
- Ron’s Gone Wrong
- Happiest Season
- King Richard – biopic on tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams and their father
- Raya And The Last Dragon
DECEMBER 2020 (5 movies)
- Dune – Frank Herbert’s famous novel, will they do it justice?
- Coming 2 America – Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall doing this again? Can’t wait to laugh at this one! Cast list includes Wesley Snipes, too? This should be fun. Clever sequel title!
- West Side Story – adaption of famous Broadway musical. Could have major interest.
- The Croods 2
What’s not coming in 2020? James Cameron’s Avatar first sequel is not coming until December 2021. So … those eager like myself, will need to wait another year to see how that epic turns out.
I’ll have extended first glance and preview coverage as the 2020 films draw nearer, but at this very early stage I am most excited, most looking forward to, these 5 of 20 bolded above (in order of anticipation and interest):
- Coming 2 America
- Wonder Woman 1984
- Bill & Ted Face The Music
- Fantasy Island
- No Time To Die (“Bond … James Bond.”)
Three of the five are sequels, one is based on a popular TV show and the other is a franchise film. There are some original stories out of the other 15 that are of great interest, but admittedly, I tend to look most forward to the known over the unknown. Ironically, I tend to most like the unknown, so go figure.
What movies are YOU looking forward to seeing above?
