- Directed by: Ruben Fleischer
- Starring: Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Antonio Banderas, Sophia Taylor Ali, Tati Gabrielle
- Opening on: February 18, 2022 (formerly February 11, 2022)
This Indiana Jones-styled action-adventure film, based on the popular video game series of the same name, has been floating around in development for more than a decade, but it wasn’t until June of 2019 that we got some solid forward movement on it. Tom Holland was confirmed to star in the film as the central hero, Nathan Drake, and it officially went into production in early 2020. It lands here after several shifts in the release schedule; let’s hope it stays here.
The Batman (2022)
- Directed by: Matt Reeves
- Starring: Robert Pattinson, Jeffrey Wright, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell
- Opening on: March 4, 2022
If you’re looking for yet another iteration of the Caped Crusader, you’re in luck. Despite the ongoing DC Extended Universe of films (which includes other entries in 2022 like The Flash and Aquaman 2), Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves tackles what looks to be an even darker take on Batman than we’ve already seen, with an impressive cast that includes Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Paul Dano as the Riddler, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon.

Ryan Reynolds reunites with Free Guy director Shawn Levy for this Netflix sci-fi adventure about a man who travels back in time to team up with his younger self and confront his past in order to save the future. This is one of the higher-profile films for Netflix, which has once again committed to releasing at least one new film every week in 2022.
Turning Red (2022)
- Directed by: Domee Shi
- Starring: Rosalie Chiang, Sandra Oh, James Hong
- Opening on: March 11, 2022
The first of two Pixar offerings in 2022 is this fantastical coming-of-age tale about a 13-year-old girl who transforms into a giant red panda whenever she gets too excited about something. It will be the feature directorial debut of Domee Shi, who won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film for Bao in 2018, and though the film was originally scheduled for a theatrical release, it was subsequently changed to be a Disney+ exclusive.
The Lost City (2022)
- Directed by: Aaron Nee, Adam Nee
- Starring: Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe
- Opening on: March 25, 2022 (formerly April 15, 2022)
This romantic action-adventure stars Sandra Bullock as a reclusive romance novelist who embarks on a book tour with the cover model (Channing Tatum) who graces all of her novels, only for the pair to be swept up in a jungle adventure when a kidnapping attempt goes awry. The film will be directed by the Nee brothers, whose last film was the “Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are modern-day treasure hunters” movie Band of Robbers, and co-star Daniel Radcliffe as the villain who kidnaps Sandra Bullock’s character.
- Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
- Starring: Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, Tyrese Gibson, Michael Keaton
- Opening on: April 1, 2022
Sony’s latest entry in its Spider-Man-adjacent franchise of connected films is the origin story of a scientist who inadvertently turns himself into a vampire in his efforts to cure himself of a rare blood disease. Swedish director Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Life) takes up the helm, and Michael Keaton — who appeared in the MCU’s Spider-Man: Homecoming as prominent Spider-Man villain Vulture — is set to make an appearance, which has all kinds of crossover implications.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (2022)
- Directed by: Jeff Fowler
- Starring: Ben Schwartz, James Marsden, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter, Idris Elba, Colleen O’Shaughnessey
- Opening on: April 8, 2022
Sonic the Hedgehog was one of the last big movies to hit theaters before coronavirus lockdowns went into effect, and it became one of the highest-grossing films of 2020. This year, Sonic (Ben Schwartz) is back on the big screen, as Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) returns with a furry pal of his own named Knuckles (voiced by Idris Elba) and Sonic must team up with a new friend (voiced by Colleen O’Shaughnessey to stop him.

Ambulance (2022) – One of Best Action Movies You Must Watch 2022

- Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Eiza Gonzalez, Garret Dillahunt
- Opening on: April 8, 2022 (formerly February 18, 2022)
Michael Bay tones down his blockbuster tendencies just a bit (presumably) for this smaller-scale thriller about a pair of thieves who unknowingly rob an ambulance carrying a paramedic and a patient in critical condition. This remake of a Danish film has been in development since 2015, but filming finally got underway in January of 2021.
The Bad Guys (2022)
- Directed by: Pierre Perifel
- Starring: Sam Rockwell, Awkwafina, Craig Robinson, Marc Maron
- Opening on: April 22, 2022
This latest project from DreamWorks Animation is a heist comedy based on popular series of children’s books about a handful of reformed villains who decide to go straight and so some good in the world. In this case, the “bad guys” are Mr. Wolf, Mr. Piranha, Mr. Snake, Mr. Shark, and Ms. Tarantula. It was originally slated for release in 2021, but now remains updated in 2022.
The Northman (2022)
- Directed by: Robert Eggers

- Opening on: April 22, 2022 (formerly April 8, 2022)
The man who brought us The Witch and The Lighthouse return with this revenge thriller again set in the past. Anya Taylor-Joy, who starred in The Witch, reunites with director Robert Eggers alongside an all-star cast for a story about a Viking prince out to avenge the death of his father. Eggers co-wrote the film with Icelandic writer Sjón, and the film co-stars that country’s biggest pop culture export, Björk, who makes her first narrative feature film appearance since 2000’s Dancer in the Dark.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022)
- Directed by: Sam Raimi
- Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Xochitl Gomez
- Opening on: May 6, 2022
Anticipation will be high for this entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — the first of three in 2022 — that will directly tie in with the events in Marvel’s first Disney+ series, WandaVision. and possibly even the animated Disney+ series What If…? After some behind-the-scenes shake-ups, director Sam Raimi jumped on board and judging from the first teaser, it’s going to be a wild ride.
DC League of Super-Pets (2022)
- Directed by: Jared Stern
- Starring: TBD
- Opening on: May 20, 2022
Back in August of 2020, the DC Fandome event presented our first look at their upcoming animated film DC Super Pets — which centers on Superman’s equally heroic dog teaming up with a flying cat to stop crime — but we haven’t heard much about it since then. The release date was set all the way back in 2019, so here’s hoping the film doesn’t have to be pushed back due to production delays.
The Bob’s Burgers Movie (2022)
- Directed by: Loren Bouchard
- Starring: H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal, Larry Murphy
- Opening on: May 27, 2022 (formerly April 9, 2021)
The hit Fox animated comedy about the owner of a small hamburger restaurant and his quirky family is getting the feature film treatment in the form of a musical comedy — something the show is already quite comfortable with. The film was pulled off the release schedule in January and may not come back in time for a 2021 release, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
Top Gun: Maverick (2022)
- Directed by: Joseph Kosinski
- Starring: Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Val Kilmer, Jay Ellis, Miles Teller, Monica Barbaro
- Opening on: May 27, 2022 (formerly November 19, 2021)
Great balls of fire, we’re getting a Top Gun sequel after more than 30 years! Not a whole lot is known about the movie, except that the filmmakers have recruited Miles Teller to play Goose’s son and that Val Kilmer is officially back as Iceman. And as the trailer promises, it will again feature Tom Cruise riding motorcycles, playing volleyball, and flying jets like a madman.
Jurassic World Dominion (2022)
- Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
- Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Laura Dern, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Omar Sy, BD Wong
- Opening on: June 10, 2022
Jeff Goldblum closed out the last chapter of the Jurassic franchise by declaring humans would have to learn to co-exist with dinosaurs, and though the plot of this trilogy-capper is being kept under pretty tight wraps, it’s safe to assume it will deal with the ramifications of Lost Kingdom. The big news here is that original stars Laura Dern and Sam Neill are both returning alongside Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Chris Pratt.
- Directed by: Angus MacLane
- Starring: Chris Evans
- Opening on: June 17, 2022
The Toy Story franchise proper has come to an end (presumably), but Pixar says there’s still more fun to be had with these characters… just, in a different way. Fresh off his stint as the MCU’s Captain America, Chris Evans will lend his voice to the “real” Buzz Lightyear, the astronaut who was the inspiration for the action figure voiced by Tim Allen, in a prequel that will explore how he became so famous that they turned him into a toy.
- Directed by: Baz Luhrmann
- Starring: Austin Butler, Tom Hanks, Olivia DeJonge, Gary Clark Jr., Kelvin Harrison Jr.
- Opening on: June 24, 2022
Baz Luhrmann directs this slice-of-life biopic about the relationship between a young Elvis Presley and his manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Austin Butler went through an extensive casting process to land the lead role, and he’ll be playing opposite Tom Hanks, who was the first major celebrity to announce he had tested positive for COVID-19 while he was in Australia to shoot the film.
Minions: The Rise of Gru (2022)
- Directed by: Kyle Balda, Brad Abelson
- Starring: Pierre Coffin
- Opening on: July 1, 2022 (formerly July 2, 2021)
We last saw the minions wreaking havoc in 1960s England before they met up with a young Gru. Perhaps their next adventure will be their first with him. Whatever shenanigans the yellow ones, voiced by Pierre Coffin, get up to, expect them to be at it again for Minions 3 and Minions 4 and so on: the first Minions movie made more than $1.5 billion globally and helped the Despicable Me franchise become the highest grossing animated franchise of all time.
Thor: Love and Thunder (2022)
- Directed by: Taika Waititi
- Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff
- Opening on: July 8, 2022
Marvel’s second film of 2022 is the highly anticipated follow-up to Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok, which reinvented the character to the delight of critics and audiences alike. Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster will return to the franchise, and it’s been teased that she will wield Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, at some point. We also know that Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie will be back, and Thor will meet up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to face Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher. So, you know, good times all around.
- Directed by: Jordan Peele
- Starring: Keke Palmer, Daniel Kaluuya, Steven Yeun
- Opening on: July 22, 2022
After the runaway success of Get Out and Us, Jordan Peele got real busy real fast, but he’s finally getting around to making his third feature. As to be expected, we don’t know much about the film, though its first trailer reveals that it will be set somewhere in the American Southwest and center on a small town whose residents experience a supernatural event in the skies above.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) (2022)
- Directed by: Joaquim Dos Santos
- Starring: Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Oscar Isaac, Issa Rae
- Opening on: October 7, 2022
The Oscar-winning animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a big hit with critics and audiences, and Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) is probably one of the most anticipated of the year, especially considering it’s now known to be just the first of two parts. Shameik Moore is set to voice Miles Morales again, with Hailee Steinfeld’s Gwen Stacy and Oscar Isaac’s Miguel O’Hara (aka Spider-Man 2099) joining him. We also know that Issa Rae is set to voice Jessica Drew (aka Spider-Woman), and it’s likely that Jake Johnson’s Peter Parker will be back as well.
Halloween Ends (2022)
- Directed by: David Gordon Green
- Starring: Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Nick Castle
- Opening on: October 14, 2022
Director David Gordon Green and writers Danny McBride and Scott Teems successfully sequel-booted (is that a word now? reboot-queled, maybe?) the Halloween franchise with 2018’s Halloween, and based on its reception, they decided to go ahead and give us all a full trilogy. That trilogy ends with the appropriately titled Halloween Ends, in which Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode will presumably defeat Michael Myers forever.
Black Adam (2022)
- Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
- Starring: Dwayne Johnson
- Opening on: October 21, 2022
Dwayne Johnson has been attached to star in Black Adam since at least as early as 2014, but in 2022 he’ll finally hit the big screen and officially join the DCEU as the all-powerful antihero. As the nemesis to Zachary Levi‘s Shazam, there’s definitely an onscreen crossover to look forward to in the future as well. It’s high time Dwayne Johnson got to play the superhero we all know him to be!
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022)
- Directed by: Ryan Coogler
- Starring: Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman
- Opening on: November 11, 2022
In a truly sad and shocking turn of events, we lost Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman to colon cancer in 2020, and both filmmakers and fans across the world mourned his passing. This obviously led to questions about what would happen to the Marvel character, as he was set to become an important piece of the MCU’s future. As it turns out, we’re still getting a second film in 2022, but Boseman will not be recast, and the story will instead shift to focus on King T’Challa’s spunky sister Shuri, played by Letitia Wright. Outside of that, we don’t know what the film will entail, including how T’Challa’s absence will be addressed.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2022)
- Directed by: James Wan
- Starring: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison
- Opening on: December 16, 2022
James Wan returns to the director’s chair for another go at the world of Atlantis and the DC superhero Aquaman (Jason Momoa), who will be joined by Amber Heard (Mera), Patrick Wilson (Ocean Master), and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Black Manta). No other details about the film are available as of yet.
Avatar 2 (2022)
- Directed by: James Cameron
- Starring: Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, Vin Diesel, Michelle Yeoh, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Lang
- Opening on: December 16, 2022
It’s taken almost a decade and a half, but we’re finally getting the long-ago-promised follow-up to James Cameron’s once-highest-grossing film of all time, Avatar. Sam Worthington’s Jake Sully and Zoe Saldana’s Neytiri now have a family on Pandora, but when old enemies return, they’re forced to evacuate and find a new home. Kate Winslet, Michelle Yeoh, and Edie Falco are among the new additions to the cast.
Untitled Mario Movie (2022)
- Directed by: Aaron Horvath, Michael Jelenic
- Starring: Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Jack Black, Seth Rogen, Fred Armisen, Keegan-Michael Key
- Opening on: December 21, 2022
We don’t have a lot of information on this one, except that it is being produced by Chris Meledandri of Illumination (Despicable Me) and the creator of Mario himself, Shigeru Miyamoto. We also know that it will be a CGI film, so it’s likely it will be much truer to the iconic character than the oft-ridiculed 1993 feature film adaptation, and we know that Chris Pratt will be voicing the famous Goomba-stomping plumber. Anya Taylor-Joy is on board as Princess Peach, while Jack Black and Seth Rogen will voice Bowser and Donkey Kong, respectively. Still no word on Luigi, though.
