Note: this post will be updated periodically to include links to new coverage as it is posted and becomes available throughout 2020.
Cinemablend has posted an incomplete list of movies coming in 2020. Visit their post for the specific release dates as well as coverage at this blog. 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 remains a fluid document, with many changes to be made throughout 2020.

What’s not coming in 2020?

FIRST LOOK / Preview Coverage Throughout 2020
I’ll have extended FIRST LOOK and preview coverage as the 2020 films draw nearer. A new feature at the blog starting 1/17/2020 is FIRST LOOK Fridays, where at least *2* coming soon to theater films will be posted.
2020 Most Anticipated Movies
I am most excited and most looking forward to these 5 of 20 bolded titled 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.
