New Movies In 2021

Reese McCoy, Reporter

The most of 2020 and into the beginning of 2021 was a bad year for movies in the theaters, because of the quarantine and not being able to leave the house. However, now that covid restrictions are getting more and more lenient the release calendar is starting to look good again.

The movie that I want to talk about first is the newest addition to the Spider-Man franchise, after the success of the previous two MCU Spider-Man it seemed obvious they would make a third. The only problem was last year when Marvel lost the movie rights to Spider-Man because of Sony, but they got it back eventually. The new movie is called Spider-Man: No Way Home, and for fans of the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies there’s confirmed rumors that Dr. Octopus is coming back. There’s not much out about the story yet, but you should still keep an eye out for the release December 17th.

Another franchise receiving a new movie this year is James Bond, No Time to Die is the 25th James Bond movie and the 5th one with Daniel Craig as Bond. One of the most outstanding things about this film is the budget it received the highest budget ever on a James Bond film and overall, one of the most expensive budgets ever with 250 million. Other than the budget the movie is bound to be good just because of the name of the main character.

If you’re a fan of 80’s movies one of your, probably, favorites is making a return after 35 years. Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled to release on July 2nd, and with the movie the star is also coming back, Tom Cruise, or Maverick is now a teacher at Top Gun and Miles Teller is playing Bradley Bradshaw or Rooster…

Another older movie is going to be coming back, this time it’s the famous horror movie Candyman which came out in 1992. Now it’s getting a sequel which is being produced by Jordan Peele who directed Get Out in 2017 and Us in 2019. So, obviously if you’re not a fan of horror movies then this probably isn’t for you but if you are this is definitely looking like it’s going to be one of the better ones we’ve gotten in a while.

Last but certainly not least, is a movie that was supposed to come out this year but it got delayed until March 2021. However, it’s still going on here, The Batman is the newest franchise to start in DC, and although it has no connection to 2019’s Joker which attained great amounts of praise and success, it looks like it could be just as good. The new actor chosen to portray Bruce Wayne, Robert Pattinson, has drawn up some controversy just because some people feel he doesn’t fit the role, and they’ll only see him as the guy from twilight. From the trailer though he seems like the perfect fit.
