    I’m Already Hyped For These 8 Movies To Come Out In 2022

    “Don’t move to Woodsboro, and don’t be named Sidney Prescott, is what you need to know about the ‘Scream’ franchise.”

    On today's episode of BuzzFeed Daily, we broke down the top pop culture headlines AND discussed what movies should be on your radar in 2022. You can listen below or scroll down to read more about the interview!

    So let's dive right into it! Recently we talked to BuzzFeed's Allie Hayes to break down some of next year’s movies. Here's some of our conversation:

    BuzzFeed Daily: So, it's basically the end of the year somehow, and as our resident film expert, we wanted to have you on to talk about some of the movies coming out in 2022 that you're looking forward to, since there are probably a couple of dozen on your list. Can you narrow it down to the top five for us?

    Allie Hayes: So that's a big ask, like choosing my favorite children. I would definitely say my big five would probably be Scream. We also have Nope coming out from Jordan Peele this summer, which I'm very excited about.

    Now we'll dive into the Marvel waters. We've got Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder coming out. 

    And then the last one... Let's go with The Northman. Let's throw a maybe-Oscar contender in there.

    BuzzFeed Daily: Okay, let's talk about Scream first. What can you tell us about it? Is it a sequel, a remake, or a reboot we're working with?

    BuzzFeed Daily: And what about Nope?

    BuzzFeed Daily: Moving on, we already got a sneak peek at Multiverse of Madness, but how much of that teaser do you think we can take at face value, considering it's Marvel?

    BuzzFeed Daily: Then Love and Thunder comes out a couple of months later. What can you tell us about that one? Is there anything you're specifically hoping for from that?

    BuzzFeed Daily: OK, so lastly, we're talking about The Northman, which takes place in Iceland, around 900 BC. So apart from Alexander Skarsgård as a Viking prince, which is amazing casting, why are you excited for it? And also...what is this movie?

    BuzzFeed Daily: Okay, before we wrap up, we asked you to narrow it down to five movies and you said that was like choosing children, so just super quickly, are there any other children? Some honorable mentions that should be on our listeners' radar?

    AH: Totally, totally. So we have, of course, probably the most anticipated movie that I didn't even mention yet, which is The Batman. People are very excited to see Robert Pattinson as Batman and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman. It should be very very fun. I love Robert Pattinson. He's very weird. I'm very excited to see a weird, younger Batman because you don't see that a lot. I mean, you see your parents get shot in an alleyway — you're going to be a little bit weird. The man dresses up as a giant bat and fights crime — he's going to be a little weird. So I'm just excited to see that come to fruition. 

    And then as far as other children that I can mention, I personally very excited for Everything Everywhere All at Once. It's starring Michelle Yeoh. It looks absolutely incredible. I will watch anything she's in. Jamie Lee Curtis is also in it, and it's just like two very powerful women. And you don't often get to see older women in Hollywood get incredible sci-fi roles like this It's beautiful to look at — the trailer itself looks like a short film. I'll throw money at anything Michelle is in, though, so I'm very excited about that.

    And then let's finish it all up with a classic Ali. We have Halloween Ends coming out. We get to see what the hell is going on with Michael Myers, since he apparently is flame retardant and he could get stabbed a million times and it doesn't matter. I'm really excited to see what they end up doing to him.

    In the rest of the episode, we talked about how Nicole Kidman revealed that she’s lost out on jobs since turning 40.

    We also discussed what a great liar Andrew Garfield is — to the point where he should be getting Oscar buzz for Tick, Tick... Boom! *and* pretending not to be in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
