8 Movies COMING TO THEATERS in February 2021

Theaters/HBO Max: Feb 26

Month #2 in 2021 feels similar to every month since April 2020: a bunch of movies delayed and pushed forward, an increasing number of new movies premiering on streaming and VOD/PVOD.

There is one bright spot on the theater release scene and it’s WarnerMedia’s day and date in theater and on HBO Max plan (see: ), providing 17 movies over 2021 providing both theaters and HBO Max a somewhat guaranteed release schedule. They might have been criticized for this move, but they’re becoming one of the few dependable studios, along with Universal and Focus Features that are supporting theaters with at least some new movie content during the pandemic.

This month we’re getting Tom and Jerry, an animated and live action feature film. Will it be any good? The trailer is below.

For historical reference, we’re including the films originally planned for this month, delays and reschedules dates when available as of this writing.

We’re also including some notable streaming releases, but this list isn’t meant to be all-inclusive. Weekly on Thursdays usually we post a “WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND” list covering streaming in more depth.

5 Movies COMING TO THEATERS in December 2020

Theaters & HBO Max: Dec 25

All movie theaters are closed by governor’s order in our state (Washington) until December 14, 2020, but the following are movies planned for release in other parts of the United States during December.

With the second government mandated closure of movie theaters in 2020 it’s been a dreadful years for movie theater patrons and owners. We’ve somehow managed to see 45 or so new movies in theaters. That seems like a lot, all things considered, and there have been a small few good movies worth checking out. It’s been one of those years, all around, that we just want and need to put behind us.

For historical reference, we’re including the films originally planned along with their rescheduled release dates, several have been pushed to 2021.

    • Top Gun 2: Maverick (delayed, moved from June 24 to Dec 23, move #2 to July 2, 2021)

Dune, Top Gun 2: Maverick, West Side Story, Free Guy, Death On The Nile, Samaritan, Unchartered, all scheduled and delayed to 2021. All I can say about 2021 is if the pandemic subsides and moviegoers return, the theaters have a chance to rebound in a big way. The 2021 schedule is looking strong, bubbling over from Christmas 2020. Fingers crossed!

All My Life
(Dec 4)

Inspired by a true story.

Wonder Woman 1984
FIRST LOOK
(Dec 25)

News Of The World
(Dec 25)

Tom Hanks is always worth checking out. He’s going western on us here.

Promising Young Woman
(Dec 25)

Saw a lot of previews in theaters for this one prior to the second shutdown. This is giving me a strong Harley Quinn like vibe, character-wise anyway. Like she’s about to go postal on all men. Maybe this is the Birds of Prey tale we should have gotten? It’s not Harley Quinn, just to be clear.

Monster Hunter
(Dec 30)

Saw a few previews in theater for this as well and the effects look great. It’s based on a videogame which I haven’t played yet, but interested in checking that out, too. Looking forward to seeing this and Wonder Woman 1984 most of these five films.

7 Movies COMING TO THEATERS in November 2020

Theaters: Nov 13

Still hovering around 1-2 max new movies widely released in theaters in November. With classics and drop-in movies those with the AMC Stubs A-List pass will barely fill up their three movies per week included with the plan.

The results of the presidential election could give studios cold or warm feet — or maybe the results will have zero impact on if further delays and moves are coming.

At any rate, we’ve waited almost to the end of October to get this out, covering any movie date moves and changes so this would be as accurate as possible when posted. Movies get moved around in the current pandemic frequently, so not sure how reliable this will be by the end of the month. You can follow along on the 2020 list page for the updates. We also added the 2021 page to start looking forward to movies being released in theaters next year.

For historical reference, we’re including the films originally planned along with their rescheduled release dates, several have been pushed to 2021.

Let Him Go
(Nov 6)

Stillwater
(Nov 6)

No official trailer available.

Freaky
FIRST LOOK
(Friday the 13th, Nov 13)

Vince Vaughn plays a woman serial killer in his body. Blumhouse, it’s Friday the 13th, and there’s about to be bodies everywhere — or so we think based on the trailer.

Clifford The Big Red Dog
(Nov 13)

No official trailer available.

Ammonite
(Nov 13)

The Croods: A New Age
(Nov 25)

Happiest Season

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.

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.

MARCH 2021 (10 movies)

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.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife March 5

Also, it has sort of a Cobra Kai feel to it in that it seems to be continuing from a future point and harkening back vs. a retelling of the original story. That got my attention.

5 Movies COMING TO THEATERS in October 2020

Theaters: October 16

Somewhat surprisingly, there is one more wide release planned in October than September.

We’ve been following the historic movie theater scene in 2020 and what a year so far, huh? Not from amazing movies coming out and huge box office numbers — what could/should/might have been in some parallel universe — from everything that seems to prevent that from happening.

Brief recap. In mid March all US theaters closed. In late August they started reopening and as of this writing at the end of September an estimated 70% of theaters have not reopened. The two major markets, New York and California still have many closures, but I keep reading that they’re planning on reopening soon. In our local area — not too far from the Seattle area where most of this all started — a bunch of theaters, like a couple dozen at least, remain shuttered. These areas are still in Phase 2 of the local government shutdown and cannot reopen theaters yet. These local restrictions are, very slowly, being relaxed and unless there are missteps with the virus, should reopen before No Time To Die (ironic title, I must admit) is scheduled to come out.

Tenet, the biggest movie since the pandemic started launched hasn’t had the US box office sales hoped for. Blame on this in part is placed on the two major markets with theaters still closed. Meanwhile.

Netflix: Oct 7

Below you’ll find the movies listed as being released in theaters before month’s end as well as the streaming and VOD movies and at the bottom the movies that were originally planned to be released in September and delayed along with the current release dates, if known.

As has been the case since the end of March 2020, all titles remain subject to change, but since we’re actually seeing movies in theaters again, if this positive trend of reopening theaters continues, we should be able to get back to a schedule of releasing these coming soon lists sooner. In the meantime there’s no point in releasing ~45 days or so before the month due to the studio changes and postponements.

For historical reference, we’re including the films originally planned along with their rescheduled release dates, several have been pushed to 2021.

2020 Theater Releases
JAN | FEB | MAR | APR | MAY | JUNE
JUL | AUG | SEP | OCT

If you’d like to see a list of all movies released in 2020 click here (that post is being updated throughout the year). We have a post showing all wide release movies scheduled in 2021, but as of this writing is still in draft status due to frequent changes being made. Would like to say we’re confident no further changes will be made, but that isn’t realistic currently. We’re going to post it sooner or later, probably sooner. Several movies are planned for 2021 that we had planned to see in 2020 and there are still 2021 planned titles coming to fruition — maybe.

Here, for now, let’s focus on October 2020.

All movie release dates unless otherwise indicated are for the United States, the release dates in other countries can/may/will vary.

OCTOBER 2020 (5 movies)

  • The War With Grandpa – FIRST LOOK (Oct 9)
  • Honest Thief (delayed, moved from Sept 4 to Oct 9, move #2 to Oct 16)
  • 2 Hearts (delayed, Sept 11 to October 16)
  • The Empty Man – FIRST LOOK (delayed, August 7 to December 4, 2020, move #2 to Oct 23, 2020)
  • Fatale (moved AHEAD from Oct 20, 2020 to June 19, move #2 delayed to Oct 30)

    STREAMING PREMIERE
  • The Lie – FIRST LOOK (Oct 6) – Amazon Prime Video
  • Hubie Halloween – FIRST LOOK (Oct 7) – Netflix
  • The Trial of the Chicago 7 (delayed, moved from Oct 9 to Oct 16 streaming) – Netflix
  • Rebecca (Oct 21) – Netflix

    DELAYED/MOVED
    • Wonder Woman 1984 FIRST LOOK (delayed, moved from June 1 to Aug 24, 2020, move #2 to Oct 2, move #3 to December 25)
    • BIOS – (delayed, moved from October 2, 2020 to April 16, 2021) Tom Hanks
    • Venom 2 (delayed, moved from October 2, 2020 to TBA 2021, move #2 to June 25, 2021) Marvel MCU
    • Without Remorse (delayed, moved from September 18 to Oct 2, move #2 to Amazon Prime Video and “TBA 2020”)
    • Halloween Kills (delayed, moved from October 16, 2020 to Oct 15, 2021) Jamie Lee Curtis
    • Candyman (delayed, moved from June 1 to September 25, move #2 to Oct 16, move #3 to “TBA 2021”)
    • The Witches (delayed, moved from October 16, 2020 to TBA 2021) based on Roald Dahl story, has potential
    • Connected (delayed, moved from Oct 23 to “TBA 20202”)
    • Snake Eyes (delayed, moved from Oct 23 to Oct 22, 2021)
    • Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (delayed, moved from October 23, 2020 to January 22, 2021)
    • Death on the Nile (delayed, moved from Oct 9 to Oct 23, move #2 to Dec 18, 2020)

As we look through the DELAYED list above, those 11 delayed movies would have been a major boost to movie theater interest. Instead, we’ll get the five movies below … maybe.

The War With Grandpa
FIRST LOOK

(October 9)

Of the five wide release movies planned in October, this is #2 am most looking forward to seeing. It has a fun looking old vs. young vibe, especially with that wacky dodgeball scene. I like how De Niro asks the older woman if she wants to get back at the kids and she’s like “yeah!” This could be a dud or fun or … well, it could be underwhelming. I’m going to try and stay positive on this one. I mean, Christopher Walken, Robert De Niro … these guys are talented actors. Don’t lay an egg on us, please!

Honest Thief
(delayed, moved from Sept 4 to Oct 9, move #2 to Oct 16)

Somewhere I remember reading or seeing a video that Liam Neeson wanted to get out of action films. Or at least films like Taken, but maybe I’m dreaming, because this role seems very Taken-ish. Especially with his “I’m coming to get you” revenge line. I like Liam Neeson’s quiet guy goes postal routine.

With Wonder Woman pushed to Christmas day, this becomes the standout title of October in theaters. Am looking most forward to this one.

2 Hearts
(delayed, Sept 11 to October 16)

Lukewarm interest from the trailer, but of course we’ll see it regardless. This might be an OK date night movie, I don’t know.

The Empty Man
FIRST LOOK
(delayed, August 7 to December 4, 2020, move #2 to Oct 23, 2020)

No official trailer available as of this posting.

October is the perfect month for horror films. We had some good ones planned that got postponed, and no idea how this one will fare, should it go on as expected, but it’s #3 of the 5 for films I’m most looking forward to seeing in October.

I’m intrigued from the comic book aspect and more than a little surprised we don’t see a trailer for this yet. It’s like three weeks away and still no official trailer?

Fatale
(moved AHEAD from Oct 20, 2020 to June 19, move #2 delayed to Oct 30)

No official trailer available as of this posting.

I don’t know much of anything about this movie other than the plot synopsis on IMDB. That’s not enough to make it move from #5 of 5 for looking to see in October 2020.

Which of these movies, if any, are you looking forward to seeing?

Of the list of movies above released or delayed, what are you most looking forward to seeing? Are you going to wait for these movies to come to streaming or venture into theaters? If you’re still in a holding pattern, it’s all good. Let’s chat about it in the comments.

As always, wishing you all happy viewing, whatever you’re watching!

4 Movies COMING TO THEATERS in September 2020

The New Mutants are due in theaters August 28

Theaters have begun reopening and this month will be the first box office tentpole since the pandemic, Tenet.

The early international numbers coming in for Tenet are promising.

(Before the pandemic, we posted ~45 days before the start of the month).

7 Movies COMING TO THEATERS in August 2020 with 9 Rescheduled

The New Mutants are due in theaters August 28

Can’t wait any longer to post what’s coming in August, can we?

Today, the first of August, theaters should have been open all across the United States. With the exception of some drive-ins and scattered independent theaters, that’s not the reality.

The new date for the big three theater chains to reopen 80% of the theater – as of this writing anyway — is scheduled to be August 21 (see: Regal Cinemas now saying August 21 it will reopen in US, Tenet goes international first, then US).

Below you’ll find the movies listed as being released in theaters before month’s end as well as the streaming and VOD movies and at the bottom the movies that were originally planned to be released in August and delayed along with the current release dates, if known.

As has been the case since the end of March 2020, all titles are very subject to change.

For historical reference, I’m including the films originally planned along with their rescheduled release dates, several have been pushed to 2021.

Blog Housekeeping: Coming Soon and Review Schedule July 2020 and beyond

Movies Coming Soon to theaters 2020 now includes sections for STREAMING PREMIERE and DELAYED/MOVED to help better organize and track movie release updates.

Readers, if you enjoy being surprised by posts then you can safely skip reading this post, as it contains dates of scheduled upcoming posts. There are a few surprises here and there however on certain dates and details that have intentionally been left out. After all, not everything fun and worthwhile can be scheduled.

For those curious to know what to expect in the future that’s new review-related to this blog and wondering what types of posts appear here, the frequency and schedule, this post provides details and specifics.

Of course other non-review posts are made in/around the posts that are actually planned below and there are also some reviews that aren’t listed as well like ongoing The Twilight Zone (1959-) reviews, which are planned to take place over many, many years at this blog, not days, weeks or months.

COMING SOON TO THEATERS – Additions, changes and modifications

The image at the top of this post shows the subsections on the 2020 Coming Soon to Theaters page and now includes the following subsections:

  • STREAMING PREMIERE – these are higher profile movies that either could, should or are simultaneous theater releases. It’s not intended to be a complete list of all new streaming movies. VOD/PVOD movie releases will also appear on this list. From top to bottom it is date sorted (beginning of the month at top, end of month at bottom)
  • DELAYED/MOVED – movies intended to be released to theaters but have moved to other months are now listed under this subcategory

Someday all these movie release date changes might have to be put in a database, but for now this seems like the simplest and cleanest way to portray this information. Again, it’s not every single movie being released, it seeks to capture the wide theater releases, some [LIMITED] releases and streaming premieres. Basically, we’re trying to keep our eyes on new films that have broad appeal or wide release, academy attention (including some indie films) and noteworthy streaming premieres. New films can and will slip through the cracks, but this should be a fairly detailed overview of the “biggest” and “best” new movies being released in theaters in the United States.

Unless otherwise noted, all movie release dates are for the United States only. Other country release dates are not being tracked.

MONDAY / TUESDAY / WEDNESDAY – Compiled Reviews By Others + Critique Posts

New wide release movies planned for review compilation posts. These dates are subject to change based on the movies actually being released and/or our ability to watch the movies the weekend before. In some rare circumstances, reviews by others are compiled without our review, but won’t critique movies that haven’t been watched and reviewed.

All movie reviews (spoiler-free) appear first and/or primarily at Letterboxd see: https://letterboxd.com/tjsnk/

All movies seen in theaters have spoiler-free video reviews created just after leaving the movie theater at our MovieReviewsByUs YouTube channel

All movie review compilations and critiques — these contain spoilers — appear at MovieReviewsByUs.com usually the week following US release, but sometimes delayed longer. Typically, these review compilations will appear Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. There is no schedule for these posts, but you can follow along with the Coming Soon 2020 or Monthly Coming Soon to Theater lists to see which movies will be watched and reviewed.

The goal is to watch and review all wide release movies released in theaters. Not all VOD and streaming release movies are watched and reviewed.

WEDNESDAY – Coming To Theaters This Weekend Posts

Our coming to theaters weekend list will return as soon as theaters reopen. These detail the wide release movies that are being released in theaters the coming weekend.

THURSDAY – What to Watch on Streaming Channels This Weekend

A recap of MovieReviewsByUs selected titles, mostly new titles, but some older movies available across a selection of the various streaming services including, but not limited to: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, HBO Max, Peacock, Hulu, Shudder, DC Universe, AppleTV+

FRIDAY – FIRST LOOK Fridays

1 Movie COMING TO THEATERS in July 2020, 12 Rescheduled

With only one day left in June, we can’t delay this post any longer, waiting for more studio movie changes.

We’ve had enough studio movie changes in the past few months to last the next 5 years. Once theaters actually reopen this will start to calm down, but until they do, we can expect more of the same in the future.

(don’t say this!)

Leading this post with the box art of the only wide release movie in theaters left planned in July.

Such an apt title for how some folks are probably feeling around the world in these troubled times.

Let’s face it, July 2020 in movie theaters – how many will even reopen — is going to be an extremely unusual month. Possibly a month many of us will never see in our lives again. A month with only one wide release new movie — assuming that movie is not delayed, of course. A chance to see some great movies we may not have ever seen on the big screen before.

Yes, classic movies in large numbers returning at one time to the big screen!

If you’re wondering what other movies will be screening in theaters, if they are open, in July, see: Regal Cinemas Announces Classic Movie Screenings Starting July 10 (IF they reopen): Rocky, Jaws, The Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight, Jurassic Park and more

There were 12 more planned to be released as summer is a big time for movie theaters. We all know why this regular scheduling has been delayed.

For historical reference, I’m including the films originally planned along with their rescheduled release dates, several have been pushed to 2021.

Which of these movies, if any, are you looking forward to seeing?

Of the list of movies above, I’m most interested in seeing are Tenet, Ghostbusters 2: Afterlife, Morbius and The Forever Purge (those Purge movies have been fun). Planning to see them all whenever they make it to the theaters, but we all have our favorites. What are yours?
