Which one are you looking forward to the most?
A lot of things happened in 2020 causing us to miss our normal life and having to adhere to the new normal (read: face masks, social distancing, hand sanitisers) thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
One of the things movie buffs like us has to miss was going to the cinemas and watching a long list of highly anticipated films.
A handful of movies were eventually postponed; some even postponed thrice due to the closure of cinemas.
So, here’s a list of films that were postponed and scheduled to debut in 2021:
#1 ‘Black Widow’
After finally getting her own standalone movie compared to her other fellow Avengers, the spotlight on Black Widow had to be dimmed thanks to Coronavirus. The film had to be postponed twice in 2020.
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz
Premiere date: 7 May 2021
#2 The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It
The third installation of ‘The Conjuring’ is finally back to haunt us this year, as COVID-19 was busy haunting us in 2020. Ed and Lorraine Warren are back with a new case and this time, it involves murder.
Cast: Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson,
Premiere date: 4 June 2021
#3 ‘Fast & Furious 9’
The ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise isn’t dying anytime soon and if fans are still up for illogical scenes like cars flying off a cliff and landing in one peace, you can expect the film to return this year.
Cast: Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, John Cena
Premiere date: 28 May 2021
#4 ‘James Bond: No Time To Die’
Agent 007 literally had no time to die due to COVID-19, which was why the studio decided to pull the plug three times in 2020. This is Daniel Craig’s last movie as the titular character so it’s definitely a must-see for Bond fans.
Cast: Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes
Premiere date: 2 April 2021.
#5 ‘A Quiet Place 2’
This highly anticipated film had to find solace in 2020 and really kept quiet until it was time to return in 2021. Following Lee’s death, Evelyn has to keep moving on with her three children and protect themselves from the creatures that hunt by sound.
Cast: Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy, Djimon Honsou
Premiere date: 23 April 2021
