    1. The Gentleman

    Miramax/STX Entertainment

    2. The Rhythm Section

    3. Birds of Prey

    Warner Bros.

    These iconic women of the DC Comics (Harley Quinn, Black Canary, and Huntress) finally hit the big screen together in the latest installment to the DC Extended Universe.

    4. Onward


    Tom Holland and Chris Pratt reunite! And surprisingly, it's not Marvel related. Although the marketing for this Pixar film looks uplifting, the heartfelt story about finding enough magic for just one more is all but guaranteed to be a touching tearjerker. The U.S. release date is March 6, 2020.

    5. A Quiet Place: Part II

    Paramount Pictures

    We all knew John Krasinski was a seriously good actor when we fell for him and his story in The Office. But he really showed his directing chops when he helmed 2018's horror hit, A Quiet Place. The anticipated sequel continues with his wife, Emily Blunt in the lead role. The new cast additions of Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou are just icing on this already promising cake. The U.S. release date is March 20, 2020.

    6. The Lovebirds

    Paramount Pictures

    Starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani, this romantic-comedy somehow thrusts a couple into a murder mystery. With two members of modern comedic royalty in the lead roles, this movie will be a perfect date night pick or ladies night choice. This film reunites Nanjiani with Michael Showalter, director of his runaway hit, The Big Sick. The U.S. release date is April 3, 2020.

    7. Black Widow


    For years, we felt like we got to know the enigmatic Natasha Romanoff through her exploits with the Avengers. However, we'll finally get a first intimate look at Black Widow on her own in this pre-summer blockbuster. For those confused about this release, since Natasha was *spoiler alert* a casualty of End Game, this film follows her adventures between the events of Civil War and Infinity War. As they always say, legends never die. The U.S. release date is May 1, 2020.

    8. Legally Blonde 3


    Pink is the new black! 17 years after the release of the sequel to Reese Witherspoon's iconic performance, the unapologetically feminine and intelligent lawyer is slated to get back in action. The plot is kept under wraps, but the film is expected to release on May 8, 2020.

    9. Fast and Furious 9

    Universal Pictures

    Dominic Toretto is back in action with his familia. The latest was with Charlize Theron as the main adversary. Although the plot is kept a secret, names like John Cena and Cardi B on the cast list guarantee this decades-long saga will stay fresh and excite like it's the first time. The U.S. release date is May 22, 2020.

    10. Wonder Woman 1984

    Warner Bros.

    The Amazonian superhero is set to face off with not one, but two foes in the form of Kristen Wiig as Cheetah and Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord. The film also brings back Chris Pine as Diana's love interest, Steve Trevor, who's character was initially thought to be dead after the events of the first film. If that's not enough to make you want to watch the sequel, I don't know what will! The U.S. release date is June 5, 2020.

    11. In the Heights

    Warner Bros. / Via

    Lin-Manuel Miranda takes his acclaimed theater production to the big screen!

Chu of Crazy Rich Asians, the musical film adaptation tells the heartfelt and lively stories of characters living in Washington Heights, New York. The U.S. release date is June 26, 2020.

    12. Free Guy

    20th Century Studios / Via

    Ryan Reynolds is just the guy we need!

Taika Waititi, Jodie Comer, and Joe Keery are also set to co-star in the action-comedy ride. The U.S. release date is July 3, 2020.

    13. TENET

    Warner Bros. / Via

    It's safe to say that mind-bending science fiction is one of Christopher Nolan's specialities and TENET is sure to be a testament to that with its plot centered around time travel and human evolution. Starring several of Hollywood's next class of major movie stars, such as Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, and John David Washington, Nolan promises an action epic along the lines of Inception.
