10 Best Movies of 2020 (So Far)
We’ve almost made it through 2019, which means it’s time to start thinking about the entertainment we’re going to consume in 2020. As Hollywood has done lately, there’s little to look forward to that isn’t a sequel or a remake. That’s why the movies to be excited for in 2020 include the ninth Fast and the Furious film a Mulan reboot, a spinoff of Suicide Squad without Jared Leto (hopefully), and a second Wonder Woman film. It’s never too early to start planning those weekend trips to the multiplex.
Bad Boys for Life (January 17)
After 17 years, we’re overdue for a catch up with Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett. Bad Boys for Life will be the third installment for the Bad Boys series, taking the boys into the dark world of a Miami drug cartel. Great to see Will Smith and Martin Lawrence again,
Birds of Prey (February 7)
Margot Robbie stars as Harley Quinn in her own breakout movie. She joins forces with Black Canary, Huntress, and Renee Montoya to protect a young girl in danger from crime lord Black Mask.
Legally Blonde 3 (February 14)
What’s a better Valentine’s Day treat than a little bit of fluff? The third in the series of Legally Blonde movies is on the horizon as Reese Witherspoon is having a BIG moment. There isn’t much more to know other than the fact that Reese Witherspoon will be in it and that she will probably be posting more Instagram videos like this one.
A Quiet Place: Part II (March 20)
John Krasinksi’s horror film, about a family who lives in a world alongside monsters who will attack at the slightest sound, was a box office smash. The sequel is bound to get just as many people in the seats, though RIP to Jim Halpert.
Disney’s Mulan (March 27)
Children of the ’90s still love the original animated Disney film, about a young woman who fights in the Chinese army to defend her family. This generation of kids gets a live-action version, with Yifei Liu in the lead as Mulan.
The New Mutants (April 3)
Now that Maisie Williams has moved on from the Game of Thrones world, she’s free to explore others. In The New Mutants, Williams joins the Josh Boone-directed cast as a teen mutant who is locked in a facility trying to come to terms with who she is and what she can do with her powers.
Black Widow (May 1)
In another stand alone superhero film starring a female character, Scarlett Johansson is Natasha Romanova, the talented spy and Avenger known as Black Widow. Maybe this will provide a little bit of closure for all the fans still grieving her Endgame death.
Fast and the Furious 9 (May 22)
Some franchises struggle to get even one sequel. Fast and the Furious managed to get eight, with a ninth in 2020. (Suggestion: Fas10 Your Seatbelt. Anyone? Anyone?) And somehow, Paul Walker is set to make a cameo in this one. Yeah, wait for it.
Artemis Fowl (May 29)
The Kenneth Branagh-directed movie, based on the novel by Eoin Colfer, will star Josh Gad, Judi Dench, and more. It’s about 12-year-old Artemis Fowl, who comes from a family of criminal masterminds. This movie has been in the works since 2001, so it’s about time it comes to fruition.
Wonder Woman 1984 (June 5)
Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, and Kristen Wiig appear in the second of the Wonder Woman series. Patty Jenkins returns as director.

Ghostbusters 2020 (July 10)

Morbius (July 31)
After his disastrous run as Joker, Jared Leto will return as yet another comic book villain, in the upcoming Morbius movie. Michael Morbius is a biologist who accidentally transforms himself into a vampire, starting out in the Spider-Man universe as a villain before becoming something of an anti-hero.
Witches (October 9)
Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci, and Chris Rock star in the film based on the popular Roald Dahl novel about a boy who gets transformed into a mouse by a conference of witches.
