In 2022, every time we spoke about a movie or celebrity, we couldn’t help but talk about how excited we were for 2023, and how this will be one of the best years for Hollywood and world cinema. There are some brilliant movies lined up in 2023, ranging from horror to science-fiction, to drama, and some even mixed with all these genres. We can guarantee you that there is something for everyone in 2023, including some big releases from directors who only create something once in a few years. So, we decided to make your life a little easier by compiling a list of the most anticipated movies of the coming year.
2023 is about to be bigger, better, and a whole lot more exciting than 2022. While none of these movies have been released yet, and for all we know, they could bomb at the box office, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t highly anticipated. So, without further ado, here is a list of the most anticipated movies of 2023:
We have to begin with the most anticipated title of 2023, which is being directed by none other than Christopher Nolan, and will officially be his first biopic, which makes this movie all the more important to his career, his fans, and the world of cinema in general. If the title hasn’t given it away yet, Oppenheimer will tell the story about the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, who was the man behind the creation of the atomic bomb. Needless to say, J. Robert Oppenheimer was a complex man who has been through all sorts of trials and tribulations throughout his life, and if there is anyone who has the ability to tell his story, it is Christopher Nolan.
J. Robert Oppenheimer will be played by Cillian Murphy, who seems like the perfect casting for this role, but only time will tell whether or not that is true. Other cast members who will be joining Cillian Murphy in Oppenheimer are Robert Downey Jr., Rami Malek, Florence Pugh, Matt Damon, and Jack Quaid amongst several others. Since this is a Nolan movie, we can expect a large scale of production, with an even bigger cast. We can only hope that Oppenheimer lives up to everyone’s expectations. The movie is set to release on the 21st of July, 2023, and will be available to watch in theatres.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3
Marvel Studios is coming out with a range of movies and series in 2023, and we are excited about each and every one of those titles, however, based on popularity, if we had to pick one of the most anticipated titles by Marvel this year, it would, without a doubt be Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3. The Guardians have been the underdogs of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and even the Marvel comics. For the longest time, everyone was so caught up with the Avengers, that no one really noticed just how brilliant the Guardians of the Galaxy characters and movies were. However, after Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, they became more popular, and now, with the Avengers on the side-lines, these Guardians are extremely popular amongst the fans.
In 2022, we got a glimpse of what the Guardians were up to in their holiday special, however, fans were disappointed to not see Gamora around. This brings us to Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3., which will most definitely have Gamora and will also be one of the most emotional movies so far. We will get to see Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Adam Worlock, Dave Bautista, and several others in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3, and fans are already placing their bets on who will make it out alive.
A live-action Barbie movie has been in the talks for years now and is finally coming to our screens, we couldn’t be more excited. The person bringing Barbie to life is none other than director Greta Gerwig, and it will be fascinating to see her vision of Barbie come true. As of now, the creators have made it a point to keep most plot details under wraps, and even the teaser trailer for this upcoming movie doesn’t give away much at all, other than the stunning cast and art direction, which is about to blow everyone’s mind away.
Barbie will be played by Margot Robbie, and there is no one better who could possibly play this role because if anyone in Hollywood resembles a Barbie, it is Robbie herself. Playing the role of Ken, we have Ryan Gosling, who looks more than interesting with this new look. Of course, Barbie has an ensemble cast and plenty of dance sequences, and a lot of sparkles to look forward to. According to sources and a little bit of speculation, this movie will revolve around Barbie realizing that what matters the most is what’s on the inside.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1
Some might complain that this movie is only highly anticipated by the Mission Impossible franchise fans, or Tom Cruise fans, but doesn’t that cover a whole lot of the population? Because we sure think so! Every time there’s a new Mission: Impossible movie, people want more, and why wouldn’t they? These movies have some of the best action in not just Hollywood, but from movies all across the world. So undoubtedly, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 has made it to our list of the most anticipated movies in 2023! Tom Cruise will be reprising his role as Ethan Hunt and will be joined by Ving Rhames, Rebecca Furguson, Simon Pegg, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, and Angela Bassett amongst several others.
So far, the plot of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 has been kept under wraps, but we know that this movie will be incredibly challenging for Ethan Hunt, physically, mentally, and, emotionally. He will face challenges like never before and there is no doubt that the creators are about to up the ante when it comes to action sequences and possible character deaths. We will have to wait until the 14th of July to find out more about it. Also, brace yourself for a major cliffhanger, because this is only part 1!
Horror movies often get a bad reputation, and while we can’t really compare them to Christopher Nolan’s biopic, they have a charm of their own, and we have a strong feeling that M3GAN is going to the horror movie that everyone talks about in 2023. We already know that M3GAN is in good hands as it is being produced by Blumhouse Productions, who has produced some of the most nightmare-inducing movies over the years. However, this time around, they’re bringing us something different with M3GAN, and here’s why. M3GAN won’t be purely a horror movie, because there’s a major element of science-fiction in it, and that is Artificial Intelligence.
M3GAN is essentially a life-sized doll to keep a little girl company who has just lost her parents. M3GAN does everything on command…until she doesn’t. Can you imagine your own invention turning your back on you? And if so, there’s surely going to be a riot, and this riot is being created by an AI doll. Dolls have always been used in horror movies as haunted objects, but this time around there’s going to be a different approach. M3GAN will be the first to release amongst all the other movies on this list, so make sure you start your year on a scary note!
Here’s our list of the most anticipated movies of 2023, and you might agree with a few, and disagree with a few, but nevertheless, we do hope you let us know in the comments what you think about this list. Also, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for some other brilliant movies this year because there are going to be plenty!
