100 Movies to Look Forward to in 2021


Welcome to 2021! We at Awards Radar want to wish you a very Happy New Year. Folks, we did it. We’ve finally gotten past 2020, and while COVID-19 is still a huge issue, there are better days on the horizon. Vaccines are slowly being distributed, Joe Biden is about to replace Donald Trump as President, and a whole new crop of films are 9hopefully) going to be released. That’s how we’re kicking off the new year, too. Yes, we’re going to be focusing a bit on the 2021 releases that one should really be looking forward to. After all, if you love cinema, a new year brings new possibilities. Hell, we may even get back to movie theaters at some point, too. Wouldn’t that be something?

Below you’ll find 100 titles that I’m personally looking forward to in 2021. They range from potential Oscar fare like Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Soggy Bottom, Damien Chazelle‘s Babylon, Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon, and Steven Spielberg‘s West Side Story remake, to potentially guiltier pleasures for yours truly, like Spiral: From the Book of Saw and Zola. There’s also no shortage of sequels, including Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Halloween Kills, Mission: Impossible 7, No Time to Die, and the third Marvel/Sony Spider-Man flick. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, too, as we likely don’t even know what the best of 2021 will consist of. That’s part of the fun…seeing how it all turns out. So, take a gander at this list and follow Awards Radar throughout 2021 to find out how they all shape up!
