Most Anticipated Movies - 2020

Movie list created by Stehako Avatar

Sort by: Showing 40 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 75 Average listal rating (45 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 5.9
Antlers (2021)
Points of anticipation: Yes, it's been delayed before, but that doesn't always mean it's not good. I want to see a horror movie directed by Scott Cooper and I really want to see that movie with Kerri Russell.


Trailer:

People who added this item 101 Average listal rating (63 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.3
Points of anticipation: The original was an odd one that I found myself watching multiple times as a kid. Now that I have a kid the same age I was when the first one came out... I'm hoping there will be similar results with this one. That was wordy, yes. Zemeckis is great, but needs a hit, this could maybe be it.

People who added this item 68 Average listal rating (47 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7
Points of anticipation: Tom Hanks in a war film. I believe he wrote the screenplay, too.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
Points of anticipation: Will Ferrell starring in a singing competition movie? I'm all in. Plus, it will be cool to see Rachel McAdams in a comedic/singing role.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
Points of anticipation: The first movie was fun and the title to for this sequel shows it still plans to be fun, and with Salma Hayek possibly in the lead.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 77 Average listal rating (54 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6
Points of anticipation: Taylor Sheridan directing with an interesting cast (more so after watching Hoult in "The Great" and synopsis is interesting enough.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 157 Average listal rating (104 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.4
The Last Duel (2021)
Points of anticipation: Ridley Scott passion project with a stellar cast, including Jodie Comer in a role that will see if she can impress outside of "Killing Eve"


Preview Material:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 227 Average listal rating (123 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.6
Points of anticipation: The first two were mindless fun and this one shouldn't be any different. Smith and Lawrence have great chemistry, will they still have it?


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 5 Average listal rating (3 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.4
Points of anticipation: Ronny Howard directing a documentary is usually a good thing. This looks to be an important one, hopefully it gains the attention it should. Hopefully it deserves the attention.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 23 Average listal rating (10 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.1
Points of anticipation: Much like Woody Allen, Soderbergh is famous for a hit and then a miss. Let's hope this is a hit. He certainly has the cast for one.


Preview Material:

Points of anticipation: Herzog documentary about about meteors and comets and their influence on ancient religions and other cultural and physical impacts they've had on Earth.
Why wouldn't I watch that?

Points of anticipation: Oliver Stone is in serious need of an awesome movie, like the ones he made in the 80s and 90s. The synopsis sounds like it could be one... get back there, Stone!

People who added this item 85 Average listal rating (50 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.4
Points of anticipation: Sofia Coppola teaming up with Bill Murray, hopefully it has similar success to "Lost in Translation".


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 286 Average listal rating (212 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.4
Points of anticipation: It's rare to see a superhero sequel this high on my lists; but the first one was solid and Gadot is endlessly likable. Plus, the mid-80s is so hot right now.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 36 Average listal rating (24 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.6
Points of anticipation: Tom McCarthy directing. Abigail Breslin accused of murder... Matt Damon is the rescuer this time around.


Trailer:
No Trailer




People who added this item 136 Average listal rating (90 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.2
Points of anticipation: In 2001 I would have had a hardy laugh if one were to tell me there would be 9 of these movies. That laugh would have been even hardier if one were to tell me I wanted to see it. But alas, here we are with cinema's most indelible guilty pleasure.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 65 Average listal rating (39 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.7
Points of anticipation: This one has been on the docket for a while. I still don't much about it. Is it a movie, TV show? Limited series? I last heard it's a movie, hence why it's on the list. Ronny Howard's second spot on the list, with a solid cast and story is intriguing.

Points of anticipation: Gaspar Noe. Let's see what fucked-up art he comes up with now...


Trailer:

Points of anticipation: After a delay there is still a buzz about this title. Dynamic director, excellent cast, based off of popular book.


Trailer:

Points of anticipation: Linklater. Interesting young cast.

People who added this item 228 Average listal rating (164 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.8
Points of anticipation: Will Guy Ritchie finally get back to what made him a respected director, not a big-budget director? I think so. I'm going to see it this weekend...

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 39 Average listal rating (23 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.6
C'mon C'mon (2021)
Points of anticipation: C'Mon C'Mon, it's Mike Mills, he's back! Plus, Phoenix coming off his Oscar Win.


Trailer:

People who added this item 94 Average listal rating (66 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.8
Points of anticipation: Tom Hanks and Paul Greengrass teaming up again.

Stehako's rating:
Points of anticipation: Loved the original. I think Murphy & Co could do some great things with this sequel. Murphy hasn't had a solid comedic in yeeeaaars.


Trailer:
No Trailer
Points of anticipation: Taika Waititi is really killing it and his cast in this shows it. I always look forward to his creative blend of comedy styles.

People who added this item 61 Average listal rating (37 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.9
Points of anticipation: Is that Tom Hanks again? Three Tom Hanks movies in one year? It might be too good to be true, perhaps one will get bumped to 2021. This looks like his most intriguing out of the three. Plus, "Game of Thrones'" Miguel Sapochnik will have an opportunity to prove himself outside of the show. I am thinking great results!


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 16 Average listal rating (10 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.7
Points of anticipation: Well, it's a documentary about the Beastie Boys. Oh, AND Spike Jonze is directing? Say no more.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 442 Average listal rating (314 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8
Points of anticipation: Denis Villeneuve is directing. To say he is on a hot streak would be putting it mildly. I don't really care about the Dune story itself, but I have high hopes he can make it beautiful and interesting and the epic it, maybe, deserves.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 232 Average listal rating (177 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7.4
Points of anticipation: Pixar, yes, but the weaker looking of the releasing this year. The trailer doesn't actually make it look great, but I'm sure it will at least be fun and hopefully pull some on-brand heart strings.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 102 Average listal rating (56 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.2
Points of anticipation: Spielberg is directing, which seems strange, as it's a musical. I don't believe he has directed a musical. But hey, why shouldn't he experiment with new genres at his age?


Trailer:
No Trailer




Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 174 Average listal rating (123 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.4
Points of anticipation: Lonely Island is all over this so it's guaranteed to be funny. A solid comedy is a rare commodity these days. This needs to work. It might, after all they broke a Sundance purchase record of $15 million.. and 69 cents.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 258 Average listal rating (180 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.3
Points of anticipation: Five years is a lot of time to wait for a new Bond. They have made a lot of good moves for this one, so let's hope it's an improvement over "Spectre".


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 50 Average listal rating (36 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.3
Points of anticipation: This looks like a pure fun, entertaining musical. Lin Manuel Miranda is heavily involved. It looks like it will hold up the quality from the Broadway production.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 229 Average listal rating (147 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.1
Points of anticipation: Edgar Wright directing. Cool title, cool poster. It can't possibly suck.


Trailer:
No Trailer




Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 367 Average listal rating (289 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8
Points of anticipation: Pixar. Besides it seeming too similar to "Inside Out" this looks like a great crowd-pleaser from the studio. Plus, they're having it be more 'colorful', which is something the brand has notably lacked.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
Points of anticipation: Charlie Fucking Kaufman writing and directing.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 144 Average listal rating (96 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 6.8
Points of anticipation: Fincher finally back to movies. The story sounds awesome. I can't wait to see what he does with it.

People who added this item 145 Average listal rating (105 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.8
Points of anticipation: Aaron-fucking-Sorkin writing and directing. Very interesting cast is joining him. This is a looooong awaited movie. I feel like it was a decade ago when I first heard about it. So, let's hope this is worth the wait!


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
Points of anticipation: Wes.... Anderson. I'm a sucker for anything and all Wes.


Trailer:

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 368 Average listal rating (263 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.4
Points of anticipation: Chris-Goddam-Nolan. The guy loves a secret project. So I can't really tell you anything else about why I want to see it... oh yeah, John David Washington is a promising actor that has been killing it lately.

September 2020
Note for this update, though I won't be chaining any of the movies and their positions I will say the Covid-19 pandemic has certainly made this list quite a strange one, considering more than half of these will no longer be released in 2020. It looks like 2021's anticipated movies list will show some similarity...


Enjoy!
