News from around the web

The year 2021 was a tough year for British Cinema, it started with cinemas being closed until the end of May, and it was only after a slow start and into June that it started to pick up, but it ended with potentially one of the biggest movies of all time.

As we go into 2022 the threat of closures due to the growing concernes of the pandemic, but currently it looks like things are set to stay open.

We get a fairly slow start to the year although the excellent Licorice Pizza which came out on January 1st is well worth a watch, but things get going in mid January when the new Scream gets a release, horror movies often do well in January and with the built in audience and all the original stars back this should be a hit.

As January continues we get Oscar Contender Cyrano with what looks to be an awards worthy performance from Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage.

Also in January is Joel Coen's The Tragedy of Macbeth and Kenneth Branagh's Belfast along with Guy Ritchie's Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre and Nightmare Alley starring Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett.

The hits come thick and fast as we leave January as the much anticipated Morbius and Sing 2 get a release.

We go into February and epic event director Roland Emmerich brings up Moonfall and we also get the 'does anyone really want it?' Jackass Forever.

In the middle of the month we get the much delayed Death on the Nile from Kenneth Branagh, his second film in consecutive months, and then as them month closes we get the much anticipated Uncharted starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg.

We go into spring with the March release os the overly anticipated The Batman which is directed by Matt Reeves and stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.

Pixar also release their forst movie of the year Turning Red and we also get a movie delayed from the end of 2021 in the shape of sequel movie Downton Abbey: A New Era/

Finally in March we get the fourth in the John Wick series which is yet to get a full title along with Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum in The Lost City

We get into April and the follow up movie Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is released with Jim Carrey and Idris Elba lending his voice to villain Knuckles.

Before the summer season starts Warner Bros. release Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore which will have Mads Mikkelsen taking over the role of Grindelwald and then at the end of the month we get a surprise follow up movie with Fisherman's Friends: One and All.

All eyes will be on the start of May as the spiritual successor to Spider-Man: No Way Home is released with Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and we finally get the delayed too many times movie Top Gun: Maverick, a follow up to the classic 1986 movie starring Tom Cruise.

Then we get into summer proper as June brings Jurassic World: Dominion and the Pixar movie Lightyear where Chris Evans takes over as the voice of Buzz Lightyear.

Another movie which has been delayed, Minions: The Rise of Gru gets a release in July along with the next MCU movie Thor: Love and Thunder which will see Natalie Portman take over as Thor and Taika Waititi returns to direct this fourth instalment.

As the year goes past the halfway mark the next Jordan Peele horror movie gets a release with Nope and then superstar Dwayne Johnson becomes a superhero in Black Adam.

August brings us The Man From Toronto starring Kaley Cuoco better known as Penny from The Big Bang Theory and September takes us to Salems Lot in this adaptation of the Stephen King novel from director Gary Dauberman.

September also brings us Don't Worry Darling from Olivia Wilde and stars Florence Pugh and as we enter October the much anticipated animated sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part One gets released.

October is known for its horror movies and Halloween Ends brings the current trilogy to a close, and maybe even the series of movies while there is a return for another long running horror series as Paranormal Activity: The Other Side gets released.

November has a new movie from the DCEU as The Flash is another movie which shows us that DC can do multiverses as well and in the same month Marvel brings us Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

As the year comes to a close we get the big screen adaptation of Matilda from the musical rather than the book and then the DCEU is back with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

And then finally we get the animated movie Super Mario Bros.: The Movie starring the famous Nintendo plumber in his first big screen animated movie.

There will be more announcement in time as the end of the year is a little empty at the moment, but there we have it, a year of movies to look forward to, and as you can imagine in this uncertain time, there is every possibility that some movies will be delayed, especially if there is another lockdown and cinemas close.

Keep and eye on upcoming releases at our coming soon page.

Black Adam is the next superhero to get the movie treatment in the DC Extended Universe and Warner Bros. showed the forst footage from the 2022 movie at #DCFanDome this weekend.

The movie stars Dwayne Johnson as the title character Black Adam who is the antihero from the Shazam! movie, which is also getting a sequel in 2022.

A little known fact is that Dwayne Johnson was an executive producer on the first Shazam! movie.

Alongside Johnson the film stars Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Shahi and Aldis Hodge among many others.
