8 Film Releases to Look Forward to in 2022

The pandemic has put a halt to several movie productions over the past few years. But with things starting to look up with the introduction of vaccines, the film industry has managed to get up and running again. This means that we have a whole host of marquee releases to look forward to in the new year. Get your diaries out and make note of the following films to catch in the cinema in 2022.

The 355 (January 14th 2022)

A group of international agents group together to recuperate a weapon from a dangerous group of mercenaries. So far, it sounds like every spy thriller ever, I know. But the all-star cast of women is mouthwatering. The quartet of Lupita Nyongo’o, Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger, Penelope Cruz must band together to save the world. But their every move is being tracked by a mysterious figure. Female-led spy films are few and far between, making this a much-anticipated project, and since it’s hitting our screens in January, we don’t have to wait much longer. 

Legally Blonde 3 (May 2022)

Elle Woods is returning almost 20 years after she last graced our screens. Reese Witherspoon will be reprising the role of Elle Woods, but she sadly won’t be joined by Bruiser, the other half of our favourite Gemini-vegetarian duo. We still don’t know much about the plot, but comedian Mindy Kaling has taken charge of the script. Witherspoon promises fashion and feminism from the film. Oh, and Jennifer Coolidge is returning as Paulette! What more could we ask for? 

Nope (July 22nd 2022)

Jordan Peele is yet to miss. His movies Get Out and Us might have only been released in the past few years, but they are already certified members of the classic horror canon. Hype for his third directorial effort is astronomical thanks to the high-standards he’s already set. Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya are on board to star in the film, but not much else has been revealed about the project. If Peele’s other projects are anything to go by, it’s certain to leave us quaking. July 22nd couldn’t come quicker.  

Don’t Worry Darling (September 23rd 2022)

After the wild success of her directorial debut Booksmart, Olivia Wilde is set to follow up with the highly anticipated Don’t Worry Darling. The story follows an unhappy housewife in the 1950s who uncovers an unsettling truth. Meanwhile, her husband Jack hides a dark secret himself. With Academy Award Nominated Florence Pugh and Harry Styles stepping into the shoes of Alicia and Jack, this movie is destined for greatness.  

Poor Things (2022)

A take on Glaswegian author Alasdair Gray’s novel, Poor Things is slated for a 2022 release. The eccentric postmodernist style of Gray provides fitting source material for an adaptation by offbeat director Yorgos Lanthimos. The story follows Belle Baxter, a woman who is brought back to life by a scientist who sees her as his perfect companion. Emma Stone will star in yet another Lanthimos production after her success in his critically acclaimed comedy The Favourite. She will be joined by a host of stars, including Willem Dafoe and Mark Ruffalo.  

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (November 11 2022)

The plans for a Black Panther Sequel were put on hold as the world mourned the loss of Chadwick Boseman, whose performance as T’Challa was beautifully warm and fiercely unforgettable. Marvel announced that the character could not, and would not, be re-cast. A sequel with most of the original cast was later announced, and production commenced in June 2021. The film is set to further explore the nation of Wakanda as it is now open to the world after years of success in the shadows.  

Disappointment Blvd. (2022)

A four-hour-long nightmare comedy? Directed by Midsommar’s Ari Aster? Starring Joaquin Phoenix? Sign us up. Disappointment Blvd chronicles the life of a successful entrepreneur across the span of several decades. This ambitious project will be produced by adored indie production company A24 and will feature various high-profile actors. After the success of Midsommar and Hereditary, Aster has free reign to make whatever type of film he wants, and that’s exactly what he’s doing. 

The Color Purple

Alice Walker’s The Color Purple documents the life and struggles of Celie, a Black woman living in Georgia during the 1900s. Spielberg’s 1985 adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel was received with widespread acclaim, but Blitz Bazawule’s take will be a musical adaptation. Singer H.E.R will be making her acting debut as Squeak, alongside Corey Hawkins as Harpo, but the rest of the cast is yet to be announced. The novel was first adapted into a Broadway musical, and we can’t wait to see it on the big screen.
