2019 proved to be a successful year for film, with such movies as 1917 and Avengers: Endgame. 2020 is looking much the same, with any big blockbusters in the works, but also a number of indie projects that look fairly promising. Undoubtedly, movie-goers will be delighted by the line-up of movies set to come out over the next 12 months, with many hoping that we will reach the same highs and avoid the same lows as we did in 2019.
Birds of Prey
Birds of Prey is a sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad. While the 2016 DC film was a critical failure, many praised the performance put on by Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Her role was so successful, in fact, that a spin-off film was announced that would see Quinn teaming up with an all-female team of adventurers that include some of the most popular women from the DC comic universe. The movie is set to come out in February.
Sonic The Hedgehog
The Sonic The Hedgehog movie trailer was flamed by Sonic fans when it was first released, as many were extremely unhappy with how the producers of the film had visualised the main character. The pressure from fans led to a redesign of the character, and many feel that he is now more in line with what he looks like from the games. Sonic The Hedgehog will follow the titular character and his adventures against Dr Robotnik, who is being played by comedian Jim Carrey.
A Quiet Place Part II
A Quiet Place was met with high praise when it was first released, and fans have been looking forward to the conclusion of the Abbott family. The original film followed the survival of a family in a world dominated by an alien race that tracked and killed through noise. While two of the family members were killed in the first film, the rest were seemingly able to survive thanks to a cochlear implant and a shotgun. Part II looks to follow the survivors as they make their way to a new safe place, and looks as rewarding as a bit of eSports betting Australia.
While the Avengers arc may temporarily be at an end after Endgame, there are still plenty of Marvel films that are in the works. One set for 2020 is Black Widow, a film that follows the exploits of Natasha Romanoff, an international superspy that has ties to the KGB and a dark past. While not much is known in regards to the plot of the movie, it’s expected to shine some light on the mysterious past of the famous spy and assassin.
Top Gun: Maverick
Top Gun is a classic in the action genre, and is best known for performances from Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer as they fought together in the skies. Maverick will see much of the same style that made the first movie an instant fan favourite, with Tom Cruise flying jets, riding motorcycles, and playing volleyball.
