We could be midway through the year, but there are still plenty of exciting upcoming movies set to theatres in the coming months.

Later this year, you can get your superhero fix with Black Adam and sequels to Black Panther, while other iconic franchises like Avatar and Halloween are also getting new installments – and that’s just the beginning. So, keep reading to find the best picks for the best upcoming films without further ado.
Nope, and The Gray Man:
Has any director risen to such prominence in such a short period? Jordan Peele became an instant horror icon after the release of getting Out, and his follow-up Us cemented his place among filmmaking legends. Peele is back with the mysterious new film Nope, starring Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya as “the only Black-owned horse trainers in Hollywood.” Things quickly turn sour as a supernatural force in the sky descends on America. The less you know about something, the better. Peele’s Nope promises to be another divine fright. Based on Mark Greaney’s best-selling novel, The Grey Man stars Ryan Gosling as Court Gentry, aka Sierra Six, a highly skilled CIA black ops mercenary. When Six unintentionally discovers inculpatory evidence about Agent Lloyd Hanson.
Bullet Train and Don’t Worry Darling:
Based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle, Bullet Train follows a group of assassins on a high-speed Tokyo train who discover that their missions are interconnected. There isn’t much calm on this train. Brad Pitt stars in the thriller directed by David Leitch, who also directed John Wick and Deadpool 2. The film also stars Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Logan, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Sandra, and Bad Bunny. Initial reactions to the first Bullet Time footage were positive, so fingers crossed that the director will deliver another visceral actioner. Don’t Worry Darling is a 1950s-set psychological thriller. Olivia Wilde directs her first film since Booksmart, starring Florence Pugh as Alice, an unhappy homemaker.
Halloween Ends and Black Adam:
“Given what I know about the movie, I think it will be the time I play her,” Jamie Lee Curtis says, reprising her role as Laurie Strode in the final installment of the rebooted Halloween trilogy. “And I’m not saying, ‘Oh because I’m going to die!'” That has nothing to do with it. I’m referring to what they’ve built emotionally. In my opinion, it will be a spectacular way to conclude this trilogy. It’s almost surprising that Dwayne has never starred as a comic-book hero before, given his hulking frame and larger-than-life persona. But that’s about to change as he arrives to upend the DC Universe’s power structure.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Avatar 2
The profound challenge for director Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was figuring out how to make a sequel after Chadwick Boseman’s death. Backing up Kevin Feige’s comments, production and development VP Nate Moore recently clarified one point: “As difficult as it is narratively to figure out what to do because that’s a big hole, we never considered recasting.” Despite the excruciatingly long wait – Avatar broke box-office records in 2009 – the sequel is almost here. So, what was the hold-up? According to producer Jon Landau, it came down to writing four scripts for the planned series of the third installments up to Avatar 5.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom:
In Shazam!, Zachary Levi reprises his role as Shazam. The Gods’ Fury Billy Batson’s superhero alter-ego will go up against the Atlas daughters, played by Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu. Sandberg has confirmed that “The Rock” Johnson’s character will not be in this film. The sequel was supposed to arrive in 2023, but it has now taken Aquaman 2’s place on the release schedule. Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom is directed by James Wan again. Never mind that the director of The Conjuring’s proposed solo Black Manta film has been canceled: The sequel to 2018, which had more legs with ticket-buyers than on drums, sees Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s David Kane/Manta seek vengeance on Aquaman.
