Cinema makes a comeback: Which top movies are coming out in 2022?
Clearly, the coronavirus pandemic continues to have a heavy impact on society, including the film industry. But human creativity is resilient. Movies & shows continue to go strong in 2022. With that being said, it’s time to look ahead to the films we’re expecting to grace our screens in the new year. There are plenty of movie nights we can set up this year. Learn some of the great films coming out in 2022!
The 355 is one of the greatest movies coming out in 2022. Directed by Simon Kinberg and starring Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger, Penelope Cruz, Lupita Nyong’o, Fan Bingbing, Sebastian Stan, and Edgar Ramirez, the film opened earlier this year.
“CIA agent Mason ‘Mace’ Brown joins forces with a rival German agent, a cutting-edge computer specialist and a Columbian psychologist when a top-secret weapon falls into the hands of a group of mercenaries. Together, the four women embark on a breakneck mission to save the world while staying one step ahead of a mysterious figure who’s tracking their every move.”
After collecting some of the most radiant reviews of her career for her stellar turn in 2019’s Hustlers, Jennifer Lopez is returning to romantic comedies in this story about a pop star who marries a stranger in one of her crowds (Owen Wilson) after she finds out her partner has been having an affair. Marry Me was pushed back a year from its originally planned 2021 release.
“Pop superstar Kat Valdez (Lopez) is about to get married before an audience of her loyal fans. However, seconds before the ceremony, she learns about her fiance’s cheating ways and has a meltdown on stage. In a moment of inspired insanity, Kat locks eyes with a total stranger in the crowd and marries him on the spot.”
Of course, there are forces working together to separate the newlyweds. They must decide if two people from very different worlds can find true love together.
Death on the Nile
“Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river streamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short.”
Listed as one of the top movies coming out in 2022, Death on the Nile stars Kenneth Branagh returning as a detective Hercule Poirot following the shocking success of 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express, which Branagh also directed. Other prominent names include Armie Hammer, Letitia Wright, Annette Bening, and Rose Leslie.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer and starring Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Sophia Taylor Ali, Antonio Banderas and Tati Gabrielle, Uncharted is an Indiana Jones-styled action-adventure, derived from the popular video game series of the same name. It’s been in development for more than a decade. Then came June of 2019, we saw some solid progress on the project.
It’s been confirmed that Tom Holland was confirmed to star in the film as the central hero, Nathan Drake. Production officially began in early 2020. After numerous shifts in release, it has landed a spot amongst the movies coming out in 2022. Hopefully, it stays there!
Directed by Matt Reeves and starring Robert Pattison, Zoe Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, Paul Dano, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell, DC fans can look forward to The Batman in March!
“The Riddler plays a dangerous game of cat and mouse with Batman and Commissioner Gordon in Gotham City.” Will the tales of Gotham City ever become a thing of the past?
With the persisting DC Extended Universe of films (which include other titles in 2022 such as The Flash and Aquaman 2), Planet of the Apes Matt Reeves is taking on what appears to be an even more ominous perspective on Batman than fans have already witnessed!
