Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Francis Ford Coppola

with : Aubrey Plaza, Adam Driver, Jason Schwartzman, Shia LaBeouf, Giancarlo Esposito, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight, Dustin Hoffman, Forest Whitaker, Talia Shire, Laurence Fishburne

plot : An architect wants to rebuild New York City as a utopia following a devastating disaster.

Why do I want to see this ?
It's a project that Coppola had started to write back in the 80's and he has been trying to finally make it during the last 20 years. Will he eventually finally manage to make the damned thing? Will be it a triumphant come-back after 40 years of fairly disappointing stuff? I'm definitely eager to find out as it sounds seriously ambitious, much more than anything else Coppola has done for a very long time.

Release date (U.S.) : 15 March 2024

directed by : Denis Villeneuve

with : Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Léa Seydoux, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Christopher Walken, Charlotte Rampling

plot : This follow-up film will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.

Why do I want to see this ?
Well, even though the 1st part was a commercial and critical success, to be honest, it didn't really impress me. Still, Denis Villeneuve is definitely one of the most interesting directors at work nowadays and maybe I will feel more connection with this movie so I will definitely check this 2nd part.
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, Justin K. Thompson

with : Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Oscar Isaac, Jason Schwartzman, Amandla Stenberg Daniel Kaluuya, Mahershala Ali

plot : After leaving off from Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the story continues.

Why do I want to see this ?
Yeah, even though I have to admit that I was actually really cautious at first, I eventually really loved the first 2 installments in this franchise so I'm definitely eager to see their next chapter.

Release date (U.S.) : 25 September 2024

directed by : David Cronenberg

with : Guy Pearce, Diane Kruger, Vincent Cassel

plot : Karsh, an innovative businessman and grieving widower, builds a device to connect with the dead inside a burial shroud.

Why do I want to see this ?
David Cronenberg is always an intriguing director and it is really cool that he won't take again 8 long years to come up with a new directorial effort. Furthermore, 'Crimes of the Future' was a really solid come-back, a typical Cronenberg feature. and this new tale sounds also like a perfect fit for him.

Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Steve McQueen

with : Saoirse Ronan

plot : Follow the stories of a group of Londoners during the events of the British capital bombing in World War II.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though 'Small Axe' was a critical success, since I don't have Amazon Prime, I didn't watch it which is too bad (maybe I bought it on DVD at some point). Anyway, McQueen is still one of the most interesting directors at work nowadays so I will definitely check his next directorial effort.

Nosferatu (2024)



Release date (U.S.) : 25 December 2024

directed by : Robert Eggers

with : Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Nicholas Hoult, Bill Skarsgard, Willem Dafoe, Lily-Rose Depp

plot : A gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman in 19th century Germany and the ancient Transylvanian vampire who stalks her, bringing untold horror with him.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though I did like 'The Northman', to be honest, it was a flop. On top of that, I'm not sure if I really want to see another version of this story (In fact, I should rewatch the classic original version instead). Still, Eggers is an intriguing director and the cast is really cool so I will check it out at some point.

Release date (U.S.) : 21 June 2024

directed by : Yorgos Lanthimos

with : Emma Stone, Jesse Plemons, Margaret Qualley, Willem Dafoe

plot : unknown

Why do I want to see this ?
In fact, I still haven't watched 'Poor Things' yet but I'm already planning to watch Yorgos Lanthimos's next directorial effort. Indeed, he is definitely an interesting director, 'Poor Things' has been a huge critical success and he is working again with Emma Stone, possibly one of the best actresses at work nowadays.

Inside Out 2 (2024)



Release date (U.S.) : 14 June 2024

directed by : Kersey Mann

with : Amy Poehler, Maya Hawke

plot : Follow Riley, in her teenage years, encountering new emotions.

Why do I want to see this ?
I really loved 'Inside Out' but, on the other hand, I really dread all these sequels from Pixar. Still, I will definitely check it out when it's available on Disney+.

Release date (U.S.) : 24 May 2024

directed by : George Miller

with : Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth

plot : The origin story of renegade warrior Furiosa before she teamed up with Mad Max in 'Fury Road'

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I'm one of the very few who wasn't completely blown away by 'Fury Road'. Sure, I'll have to admit that it was a decent action flick but it wasn’t really much more than that. Eventually, the main reason why I added this movie on this list was, because of the strikes, there is a real scarcity of interesting movies coming up in 2024. Still, I'm a huge fan of Anya Taylor-Joy and it will be pretty neat to see her leading a massive action flick.
People who added this item 27 Average listal rating (14 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6



Release date (U.S.) : 23 February 2024

directed by : Ethan Coen

with : Pedro Pascal, Margaret Qualley, Matt Damon, Beanie Feldstein

plot : Jamie regrets her breakup with her girlfriend, while Marian needs to relax. In search of a fresh start, they embark on an unexpected road trip to Tallahassee, but things quickly go awry when they cross paths with a group of inept criminals.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I still haven't watched Joel Coen's 'Macbeth' even if it did get some solid reviews but I have to admit that I'm not exactly dying to see yet another adaptation of this Shakespeare play (I think I have seen already 3 of 4 other versions of this story by now). Anyway, the Coen brothers have always been some of the best directors around so I'm definitely curious to see what Ethan Coen will deliver on his own without his brother involved.

Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Gareth Evans

with : Tom Hardy, Luis Guzmán, Timothy Olyphant, Forest Whitaker

plot : The story is set after a drug deal gone wrong, when a bruised detective must fight his way through a criminal underworld to rescue a politician's estranged son, while unraveling a deep web of corruption and conspiracy that ensnares his entire city.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of Gareth Evans's work (in my opinion, 'The Raid' was only mildly enjoyable). However, I'm a big fan of Tom Hardy and, since this movie will be released on Netflix, I will definitely check it out.

Civil War (2024)



Release date (U.S.) : 26 April 2024

directed by : Alex Garland

with : Kirsten Dunst, Wagner Moura, Jesse Plemons

plot : In the near future, a team of journalists travel across the United States during a rapidly escalating civil war that has engulfed the entire nation.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, 'Men' turned out to be intriguing but not much more than that. However, I'm still planning to see Alex Garland's next directorial effort though, above all, because I loved 'Ex-Machina' so much.
Release date (U.S.) : 12 July 2024

directed by : Ron Howard

plot : This follows a young man who begins shrinking in size after playing a strange board game, which goes largely unnoticed by his parents.

Why do I want to see this ?
I have never been a huge fan of Ron Howard's work but I'm intrigued to see his first animated feature. On top of that, it will be released on Netflix so I will definitely check it out.
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : the Safdie brothers

with : Adam Sandler

plot : unknown

Why do I want to see this ?
Who would have thought that I would add an Adam Sandler movie on this list at some point? In fact, the main reason why I did add this movie was because I really loved the other movies delivered by the Safdie brothers, even if in this case, I really know nothing about this damned thing.

Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Mike Leigh

with : Marianne Jean-Baptiste

plot : Ongoing exploration of the contemporary world with a tragicomic study of human strengths and weaknesses.

Why do I want to see this ?
I know very little about this movie and the main reason I added it on this list was because it was chosen by Indiewire for their own list '50 Movies We Can’t Wait to See in 2024'. I have to admit that I still haven't watched 'Peterloo' which was apparently a huge flop when it was released but Mike Leigh is usually a really strong director so it would be pretty cool to see what he will do next.
Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2024

directed by : Nick Park and Merlin Crossingham

plot : Focus on Gromit's concern that Wallace has become over-dependent on his inventions, which proves justified when Wallace invents a "smart gnome" that seems to develop a mind of its own.

Why do I want to see this ?
Since I have always been a huge fan of these characters, I would definitely watch this movie. On top of that, since it will be released on Netflix, I will check it out as soon as it is released.



Release date (U.S.) : 24 May 2024

directed by : Wes Ball

with : William H. Macy

plot : Many years after the reign of Caesar, a young ape goes on a journey that will lead him to question everything he's been taught about the past and make choices that will define a future for apes and humans alike.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, even though I did like this new trilogy, especially the second instalment, I can't say that this franchise was/is a priority for me. However, because of the strikes, there is a real scarcity of interesting movies coming up in 2024 so I ended up adding it on this list. The fact that it will be available on Disney+ also definitely played a role.



Release date (U.S.) : 19 April 2024

directed by : Zack Snyder

with : Charlie Hunnam, Anthony Hopkins, Cary Elwes, Jenna Malone, Michiel Huisman, Djimon Hounsou, Corey Stoll

plot : Kora and surviving warriors prepare to defend Veldt, their new home, alongside its people against the Realm. The warriors face their pasts, revealing their motivations before the Realm's forces arrive to crush the growing rebellion.

Why do I want to see this ?
This addition might be weird since I didn't even add the first instalment released in 2023 on this list. I might still watch it when it is released in December though, it depends how it will be received. Eventually, the main reason why I added this movie on this list was, because of the strikes, there is such a scarcity of interesting movies coming up in 2024. The fact that it will be available on Netflix was another reason.

Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Jeremy Saulnier

with : AnnaSophia Robb, Don Johnson, James Cromwell

plot : A high-velocity thriller that explores systemic American injustices through bone-breaking action sequences, suspense and dark humor.

Why do I want to see this ?
Eventually, the main reason why I added this movie on this list was, because of the strikes, there is a real scarcity of interesting movies coming up in 2024. The fact that it will be available on Netflix was another reason.



Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2024

directed by : Anthony Russo and Joe Russo

with : Millie Bobby Brown, Chris Pratt, Stanley Tucci, Brian Cox, Billy Bob Thornton, Giancarlo Esposito, Anthony Mackie

plot : An orphaned teenager traverses the American West with a sweet but mysterious robot and an eccentric drifter in search of her younger brother.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I'm not sure if it will be really interesting. Indeed, most of the blockbusters delivered by Netflix have been terribly underwhelming so far ('The Gray Man' by the Russo brothers was a perfect example). Eventually, the main reason why I added this movie on this list was, because of the strikes, there is a such a scarcity of interesting movies coming up in 2024.

BC Project (2025)
Release date (U.S.) : 8 August 2025

directed by : Paul Thomas Anderson

with : Leonardo DiCaprio, Sean Penn, Regina Hall

plot : unknown

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though it has been a while since Paul Thomas Anderson actually really blew me away, I still think he is one of the most interesting directors at work nowadays so each new directorial effort from him is always a big event for me. On top of that, he will be working for the 1st time with Leonardo DiCaprio, an actor with one of the most amazing track-records in the business so there will be a huge buzz around this movie, that's for sure.

Mickey 17 (2024)
Release date (U.S.) : 31 January 2025

directed by : Bong Joon Ho

with : Mark Ruffalo, Robert Pattinson, Toni Collette, Steven Yeun

plot : To stop his substitute clone Mickey8 from supplanting him, Mickey7, an expendable robot, is dispatched to an icy planet to settle it.

Why do I want to see this ?
Bong Joon Ho has always been a solid director and I will really eager to see what he will do next after the massive critical success of 'Parasite'. I will be also interesting to see him working again with a English-speaking cast, even if 'Snowpiercer' didn't actually really blow me away.

?????

Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Alejandro G. Iñárritu

with : Tom Cruise

plot : unknown

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though 'Bardo' was definitely intriguing, it turned out to be a rather pretentious ego-trip after all but, fortunately, it was the only disappointing directorial effort delivered by Iñárritu so far and I'm still a huge fan of this director. This time, he will be working with Tom Cruise, easily the biggest movie star alive right now, and even though I never really cared for most of his movies, Cruise can be amazing when he finally picks up something really challenging which should be definitely the case here.

Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Darren Aronofsky

with : Jared Leto

plot : A fishing boat discovers an abandoned yacht with a strange distress call. A deckhand agrees to take lone control of it while it's towed into port, but soon he discovers why it is called it a "Ghost Ship."

Why do I want to see this ?
Aronofsky has already announced his next directorial project after ‘The Whale’. At least, Jared Leto sounds much more interesting than Brandon Fraser as a lead actor and it is actually pretty neat to see him working again with Aronofsky 20 years after ‘Requiem for a Dream’. The fact that Leto probably gave back then his best performance so far makes this new project with this specific director even more promising.
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Darren Aronofsky

with : Austin Butler

plot : Burned-out ex-baseball player Hank Thompson unexpectedly finds himself embroiled in a dangerous struggle for survival amidst the criminal underbelly of 1990s New York City, forced to navigate a treacherous underworld he never imagined.

Why do I want to see this ?
I wonder which one will be next for Aronofsky between this movie and 'Adrift' but anything from this director is pretty much always a must-see for me.

Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Taika Waititi

with : -

plot : An epic space opera centered on shabby P.I. John Difool, who happens upon a mystical artifact known as the Incal-an object of great power coveted by many factions across the galaxy.

Why do I want to see this ?
I really wonder if this will ever get made. I mean, right now, Taika Waititi is a seriously crazy hot director linked to pretty much everything (MCU, Star Wars, Akira,...). So, why not also a bonkers adaptation of a really bonkers SF comic-book written by Alejandro Jodorowsky? Well, as a matter of fact, I'm actually a huge fan of this comic-book, it's probably one of my all-time favorites, so it would be awesome to see a solid adaptation and Waititi could be actually a good fit. There is a fair chance that it won't happen though.
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Danny Boyle

with : -

plot : Plot under wraps. The third film in the "28 Days Later" franchise.

Why do I want to see this ?
I have always been a big fan of Danny Boyle, I go way back with this director which I have been following from the very beginning of his career (Indeed, I have even seen 'Shallow Grave' in the movie theater when it was released). To be honest, even though I really liked '28 Days Later' when it came out, I don't think it grew old very well though but I think it has more to do with the fact that, after this movie was released, there was such a huge wave of zombie movies and TV-shows and not with the actual quality of Boyle’s directorial effort. Anyway, it will be really cool to go back to this story 20 years later (not exactly 28 years but who cares?).
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Terrence Malick

with : Mark Rylance, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ben Kingsley, Joseph Fiennes, Mathieu Kassovitz

plot : A retelling of several episodes in the life of the Christ.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I do have a love-hate relationships with Malick's work. However, I secretly hope with each new projects that he will deliver something trully amazing and, on top of that, it should be interesting to see such a spiritual director tackle the life of Jesus.
People who added this item 18 Average listal rating (1 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 0
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Guillermo del Toro

with : Mia Goth, Oscar Isaac, Christoph Waltz, Andrew Garfield

plot : Dr. Pretorious, who needs to track down Frankenstein's monster who is believed to have died in a fire forty years before in order to continue the experiments of Dr. Frankenstein.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I do have some kind of love-hate relationship with this director. I mean, I have seen all his movies but, even though I do respect his work, to be honest, I very often struggle to fill some real connection with his movies, even the best ones. Still, a Frankenstein tale coming from this director does sound really awesome though.
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Richard Linklater

with : Beanie Feldstein, Ben Platt

plot : It follows Franklin Shepard, a talented Broadway composer who abandons his theater career in New York and all his friends in order to produce movies in Los Angeles.

Why do I want to see this ?
It might be weird to add this movie went, in fact, it will be released in 20 years(!). However, I loved 'Boyhood' so much, I think it's just awesome that Linklater will come up with something similar and I'm pretty sure the end-result will be amazing. However, it is rather surreal to think that I will be in my 60's when I will finally watch the damned thing...
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Ang Lee

with : -

plot : The Thrilla in Manila was the third and final boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. It was contested in 1975 for the heavyweight championship of the world at the Philippine Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines, on Wednesday, October 1.

Why do I want to see this ?
Right now, there is not much information about this movie but anything directed by Ang Lee is a must see in my book.

Some of those movies are already released and some aren't released yet but I can't wait to see them
