2023 Top Movies

2023 has already been a year of blockbuster and a massive movie catalogue. The long-

delayed Aquaman sequel and The Flash movie finally landed while the MCU kicked off


the Multiverse Saga with Phase Five's Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Guardians of

the Galaxy, and in the fall, The Marvels.

Harrison Ford returns one final time as Indiana Jones, Tom Cruise kicks off the endgame

of the Mission: Impossible series, and Timothée Chalamet plays a young Willy Wonka

(while also reprising his role as Paul Atreides in the Dune sequel). And speaking of

comebacks, The Hunger Games franchise is cooking up a prequel, Tobin Bell will return as

maniacal trap-man Jigsaw, and Keanu Reeves Gun Fu-ed his way back into our lives as

John Wick.

Ghostface, Optimus Prime, Magic Mike, and Miles Morales are also all back for more

while directors like Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, and Greta Gerwig present new

and exciting projects. Read on for the 15 Most Anticipated Movies of 2023.

The Nun II : The Conjuring Universe continues to expand, as we get a sequel to the 2018

horror film The Nun, which starred Taissa Farmiga as a young nun who comes face-to-face

with the demon Valak at her convent. The second film takes place four years later, as

Farmiga’s Sister Irene encounters Valak again after a priest is murdered. Bonnie Aarons,

who portrayed Valak, is the only star currently attached to the film, so we have no word yet

on whether or not Taissa Farmiga will also return to reprise her role.

Shazam - The Fury of the Gods : Zachary Levi is back for more superhero silliness with

Shazam! Fury of the Gods, featuring Billy Batson and his foster siblings battling the

Daughters of Atlas, who look to use a weapon that could destroy the world. Helen Mirren,

Lucy Liu, and Rachel Zegler are Hespera, Kalypso, and Anthea while Djimon Hounsou

returns as the wizard, Shazam.

Transformers - Rise of the Beasts : Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback star in this

'90s-set Transformers prequel about a pair of archaeologists from Brooklyn who discover

an ancient conflict through a globe-trotting adventure that ties in with three factions of

Transformers: the Maximals, the Predacons and the Terrorcons. Peter Cullen returns to

voice Optimus Prime while Pete Davidson debuts as Mirage and YouTube star Liza Koshy

plays Arcee.

The Equalizer III : Director Antoine Fuqua and star Denzel Washington return for

another go in this vigilante action thriller franchise based on the classic TV series of the

same name. This time, Washington reunites with his Man on Fire co-star Dakota Fanning,

though we don’t yet know exactly who her character is and what the story will be.

Cocaine Bear : Loosely based (um...yeah!) on a true incident in the '80s involving a bear

and a duffle bag of narcotics, Cocaine Bear looks to unleash its crazy fury on moviegoers


this February. Directed by Elizabeth Banks, and starring Keri Russell (plus Matthew Rhys

and Margo Martindale - is this an Americans reunion?), Cocaine Bear follows an American

black bear that goes on a murderous rampage in a small Georgia town. O'Shea Jackson Jr.,

Alden Ehrenreich, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Ray Liotta (in one of his final roles) also star.

Ant-man and the Wasp – Quantumania : Jonathan Majors, who made his MCU debut

on Loki as "He Who Remains," makes a big splash as villainous variant Kang the Conquerer

in Ant-Man's third movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Paul Rudd, Evangeline

Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, David Dastmalchian, and

Randall Park all return for this fuller exploration of the Quantum Realm, which Marvel

Studios head Kevin Feige said officially kicks off Phase Five and "The Multiverse Saga."

John Wick Chapter 4 : In this hotly-anticipated fourth John Wick flick, Keanu Reeves'

unbeatable hitman uncovers a path to defeating the High Table. But before he can earn his

freedom, Wick must face off against a new enemy with powerful alliances across the globe

and forces that turn old friends into foes. Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne,

Ian McShane, Hiroyuki Sanada, Lance Reddick, and Clancy Brown also star.

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume III : Writer/director James Gunn bids farewell to

Marvel Studios (as he heads off to creatively lead the DCEU) with a third Guardians of the

Galaxy film. As Peter Quill still searches the far reaches of space for 2014 Gamora, the

Guardians must contend with the threat of the High Evolutionary (Peacemaker's Chukwudi

Iwuji) along with High Priestess Ayesha and the Sovereign's creation, Adam Warlock (Will


Fast X : With a budget reportedly ballooning out of control after longtime Fast franchise director

Justin Lin stepped down from the film in April, Fast X is still headed our way, acting as the

first half of a two-part finale for the Fast and Furious franchise. Familiar faces will be

joined by Fast newbies Jason Momoa and Brie Larson.

Creed III : Star Michael B. Jordan takes over official directing duties from Ryan Coogler

(who still co-wrote the story) for Creed III, this time following Adonis Creed as he

contends with a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy (Jonathan Majors) who

resurfaces after serving a long sentence in prison, eager to prove that he deserves his shot

in the ring. Co-starring Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Florian Munteanu, and Phylicia


Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One : The first half of (what's being said is)

a two-part finale for the Mission: Impossible franchise, Dead Reckoning Part One brings

back Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby and

Henry Czerny (from the very first M:I movie) as Ethan Hunt and his team must confront

their biggest global challenge yet. New faces include Hayley Atwell, Shea Whigham, Pom

Klementieff, Esai Morales, Rob Delaney, and Cary Elwes.

Meg 2 - The Trench : It may not have impressed the majority of critics, but 2018’s The

Meg was a surprise box office hit, so we’re getting a sequel. One upside is that this time


around the film is being directed by Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Free Fire), who has proven

to be a pretty savvy genre guy in the past, so it’ll be interesting to see what he can do with

Jason Statham and a giant shark.


Spider-man : Across the Spider Verse : The dazzling, animated Lord and Miller-

produced Spider-Verse returns as Miles Morales goes on an adventure across the


multiverse with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-people (including Oscar Isaac as

Miguel O'Hara/Spider-Man 2099). Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Jake Johnson, Brian

Tyree Henry, and Luna Lauren Vélez return with new voices provided by Issa Rae (as

Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman), Jason Schwartzman (as the Spot), and Daniel Kaluuya (as

Hobart "Hobie" Brown/Spider-Punk).

Oppenheimer : Christopher Nolan’s buzzed-about biopic on physicist and “father of the

atomic bomb” J. Robert Oppenheimer stars Cillian Murphy in the titular role, as well as

Emily Blunt and Matt Damon. Like virtually all of Nolan’s films, the IMAX-shot pic

should be taken in on the biggest screen possible.

Barbie : After her stellar adaptation of Little Women, director Greta Gerwig is back with

this high-concept original (co-written with Noah Baumbach), which chronicles the most

famous doll ever (Margot Robbie) as she’s banished from Barbieland and introduced to our
