FIRST LOOK: 92+ Movies Coming To Theaters In 2021

Watchlist as of 10/2020 – includes some 2020 movies

2021, at least from what’s planned, looks like a good year for new movie theater releases.

Hopefully, the pandemic will not be a major factor — again — in continuing to delay titles but as of this post in October 2020, that shadow looms.

Bookmark this post and return to see what’s coming out when in the future.

As movie release dates are frequently changing, some of the information below might be inaccurate now or at times in the future. This post, like our 2020 post (see: FIRST LOOK: 75+ Movies Coming To Theaters In 2020), is regularly updated as new info is made available.

Note: this post will be updated periodically to include links to new coverage as it is posted and becomes available throughout 2021.

JANUARY 2021 (6 movies)

Mortal Kombat (UPDATE: moved to April 2021)- videogame movies have traditionally by and large been horrible, but I loved this videogame which reminded me of Bruce Lee’s Game of Death. The finishing moves in the game are awesome, but sometimes videogames just don’t translate to movies. They keep trying though.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife – Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! My love for the original film had me seriously doubting any sequel not having the ghost busting trio: Harold Ramis (now deceased), Bill Murray and Dan Akyroyd, but must admit the trailer and buzz around this film has me intrigued.
