Transcription

  • From the next entries in beloved franchises to intriguing reboots and years-in-the-making
  • dream projects, some truly must-see releases are starting to fill up the calendar.
  • These are just some of the biggest films arriving in 2021 — and beyond.
  • It's been more than 20 years since a new Mortal Kombat film hit the big screen, but one of
  • the most popular video game franchises of all time is finally making its way back to
  • theaters.
  • "Hoo hoo hoo!
  • Yeah, now that's what I'm talkin' about!"
  • Producer James Wan who launched franchises with Saw and The Conjuring has handed the
  • director's chair over to first-timer Simon McQuoid for this flick, but you can bet his
  • blockbuster pedigree will be felt throughout the production process.
  • At this point, we have no idea what the plot of the new film will be.
  • The Mortal Kombat video game franchise has expanded significantly since Mortal Kombat:
  • Annihilation hit theaters in 1997, giving the filmmakers an even bigger mythos to draw
  • from as they craft their story.
  • We also don't know which fighters will be characters in the film, or which actors will
  • play them, but we can hope to learn more soon since the film is expected to start shooting
  • in 2019.
  • The new Mortal Kombat film is set to hit theaters March 5th, 2021.
  • It's been more than 30 years since He-Man and the Masters of the Universe appeared in
  • their own live-action feature film.
  • It's going to take a couple more years to finally get the characters back on the big
  • screen, but it wasn't for lack of trying.
  • A new live-action film starring He-Man and his pals has been in the works for more than
  • a decade, and at one point it was even supposed to be hitting theaters in 2019.
  • "I've waited a long time for this."
  • That didn't happen — but now Sony Pictures has finally announced a March 5th, 2021 release
  • date for Masters of the Universe, which will be directed by Band of Robbers' Adam and Aaron
  • Nee.
  • Noah Centineo, who rose to fame via Netflix's To All The Boys I've Loved Before, has signed
  • on to play He-Man — and while we have no idea who will play his various allies and
  • adversaries yet, we can expect old favorites from the animated series to show up along
  • the way.
  • Let's just hope they don't show up like… uhh… this:
  • "By the power of Grayskull!
  • Skeletor…
  • You're so Money Super Market."
  • "Hahahahahahahahaha!"
  • The Jurassic Park franchise returned to blockbuster status in a big way in 2015 with Jurassic
  • World, and producer Steven Spielberg wasn't about to let it stop there.
  • Colin Trevorrow, who directed and co-wrote the first installment, always had the shape
  • of a trilogy in his mind, and that mission continued with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
  • in 2018.
  • In keeping with the established rhythm of one film every three years, the third installment
  • in the World trilogy is now set to arrive on June 11th, 2021.
  • Trevorrow will return to the director's chair for the third installment, and will co-write
  • the film with Pacific Rim: Uprising screenwriter Emily Carmichael.
  • Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are also expected to return for the film,
  • which will feature dinosaurs roaming free on the mainland United States, making it a
  • truly Jurassic World.
  • Beyond that, we don't yet know anything about the plot.
  • John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum is the most successful entry in the franchise, surpassing
  • the entire box office runs of the two previous installments early in its theatrical run.
  • The Wick films still clearly have a lot of juice in them, audiences are still coming
  • back for more, and Keanu Reeves seems committed to continuing his reign of action dominance
  • so it's no surprise that the third film perfectly sets up a fourth installment.
  • "How can you escape from the light?"
  • "Of course.
  • You can go to the dark — but they're in the dark too."
  • It's also no surprise that it's already been announced.
  • John Wick: Chapter 4 is set to hit theaters May 21st, 2021, with Reeves back once again
  • as the titular hitman, this time going to war against people he once thought he could
  • trust.
  • We don't yet know who else will be back for the fourth film, or who will write and direct
  • — though director Chad Stahelski has already expressed interest in returning.
  • What we do know is that Wick won't get any less dangerous over the next two years.
  • The Batman has had a long road to the big screen already, and we'll still be waiting
  • two more years until it's actually in theaters.
  • At one point the film the first solo Batman flick since The Dark Knight Rises in 2012
  • was supposed to be delivered by star, director, and co-writer Ben Affleck, who'd also signed
  • on to play the Caped Crusader for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
  • But after Justice League was released in 2017, things began to change: First Affleck seemed
  • to be backing away from work behind the camera, ultimately giving up the directing role to
  • Matt Reeves.
  • Then he seemed to be backing away as star, and finally revealed that he was done playing
  • Batman altogether.
  • Ever since then, Reeves has been working to refocus the story on a younger version of
  • the character.
  • Now, The Batman will reportedly be led by none other than Robert Pattinson, with Reeves
  • also reportedly eyeing the Penguin and Catwoman as his villains for the film.
  • Other than that we still know very little about where The Batman is headed, but we'll
  • find out more soon.
  • The film is slated to hit theaters June 25th, 2021.
  • For a long time, the idea that we would only ever have three Indiana Jones films seemed
  • both comfortable and obvious.
  • Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Harrison Ford spent a good chunk of the 1980s crafting
  • their trilogy, and then it seemed to be put to bed.
  • In 2008, after years of whispers, that all changed with the arrival of the divisive Kingdom
  • of the Crystal Skull, and in an age when franchises and nostalgia are often king at the box office,
  • it was only a matter of time before a fifth film materialized.
  • Indiana Jones 5 was at one point going to arrive in 2019.
  • Then that release date was pushed to 2020, and then the Walt Disney Company announced
  • that the film would again be delayed, this time to a hopefully final release date of
  • July 9th, 2021.
  • Harrison Ford will return to reprise the title role, and Steven Spielberg will once again
  • serve as director, with Jonathan Kasdan writing the script.
  • 25 years after the original film starring Michael Jordan hit theaters, and after years
  • of rumors about its production, we will finally see a new Space Jam movie in 2021.
  • The original film was a defining moment for many kids, bringing together the biggest Looney
  • Tunes stars and the biggest basketball stars, and now LeBron James is going to do his best
  • to walk in Jordan's footsteps with a sequel.
  • "Uh, Michael… you know that your friends are cartoon characters?"
  • "Yeah, so?"
  • "No, no… doesn't bother you, it doesn't bother me."
  • James confirmed back in June that he's begun shooting the film, which doesn't yet have
  • an officially-announced plot but will likely feature plenty of star power in the form of
  • basketball icons and cameo appearances.
  • Warner Bros. has not confirmed the film's full cast, but NBA reporter Shams Charania
  • reported that the NBA stars recruited for the film include Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard,
  • and Klay Thompson.
  • Meanwhile, WNBA stars Diana Taurasi and Nneka Ogwumike are also expected to play key roles.
  • Space Jam 2 slams into theaters July 16th, 2021.
  • For a period of several months in late 2018 and early '19, James Gunn was looking for
  • new projects after he was fired by Marvel Studios, cutting him off from the upcoming
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
  • Those fences have since been mended and Gunn is back at Marvel, but in the interim he snagged
  • another comic book project over at Warner Bros.: The Suicide Squad.
  • A new take on the anti-hero team first introduced by director David Ayer in 2016, Gunn's follow-up
  • will focus on a new team lineup and aim for a different tone than the original film, which
  • means we'll get a mix of new cast members and returning stars.
  • Among those confirmed so far to be returning are Jai Courtney as Boomerang and Viola Davis
  • as Amanda Waller, while it also seems likely that we'll see more of Margot Robbie as Harley
  • Quinn and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag.
  • Newcomers include Idris Elba in a still-undisclosed role, David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man,
  • and Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher.
  • Also reportedly attached to the project are Gunn's Guardians pals Benicio del Toro — who'll
  • be playing an undisclosed character — and Michael Rooker, who'll portray King Shark.
  • The Suicide Squad will hit theaters August 6th, 2021, nearly five years to the day after
  • the first film.
  • Back in April 2019, a few months after the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of
  • Grindelwald, we learned that the third installment in the Harry Potter prequel series will be
  • arriving in theaters in the fall of 2021, keeping up the Thanksgiving-adjacent release
  • schedule already established by the series.
  • The Fantastic Beasts series, set decades before the Potter films and starring Eddie Redmayne
  • as wizard and magizoologist Newt Scamander, is now setting up to chronicle the ultimate
  • wizarding duel between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald that was referenced in
  • the Potter films — along with the true nature of the character of Credence, who got some
  • huge news about his ancestry in the last film.
  • The series is set to last a total of five films, with each one taking place primarily
  • in a different city.
  • We don't yet know what city writer J.K.
  • Rowling will take her characters to this time around, or what the subtitle of the film will
  • be, but we can expect return performances from Redmanyne, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, and
  • Ezra Miller, along with the potential for new stars.
  • Fantastic Beasts 3 will hit theaters November 12th, 2021.
  • Nearly a decade ago, James Cameron released Avatar, a dazzling sci-fi spectacle that captivated
  • audiences around the world and ultimately became the highest-grossing film of all time
  • until Avengers: Endgame took the mantle in July 2019.
  • Even while promoting Avatar, Cameron was already talking about his plans for sequels, and what
  • was at the time a vision for a trilogy of films set on the planet Pandora.
  • Way back then, Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 were supposed to arrive in 2014 and 2015, but that
  • didn't happen.
  • Then three sequels were happening instead of two, with Avatar 2 arriving in 2016.
  • Then 2018.
  • Then 2020.
  • Now, with the purchase of Fox by the Walt Disney Company, the release date has been
  • moved once again to a hopefully final slot on the calendar: December 17th, 2021, with
  • the following three sequels arriving in 2023, 2025, and 2027.
  • Hopefully Cameron and company can meet the deadlines they need this time, and we'll all
  • go back to Pandora.
  • Back in 2009, just as the Marvel Cinematic Universe was heating up, Robert Downey Jr.
  • launched another franchise with Sherlock Holmes.
  • The film, directed by Guy Ritchie and co-starring Jude Law as Holmes' sidekick Dr. Watson, grossed
  • more than half a billion dollars worldwide and spawned a sequel — Sherlock Holmes:
  • A Game of Shadows — in 2011.
  • "Are you sure you want to play this game?"
  • "I'm afraid… you'd lose."
  • After that, the Holmes franchise began to cool down as other successful versions of
  • the character carried on their mysteries on television through Sherlock and Elementary.
  • Law and Downey stayed busy with plenty of acting work, and Ritchie went on to make King
  • Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Aladdin.
  • Now, ten years after A Game of Shadows, Holmes and Watson will ride again.
  • Sherlock Holmes 3 is set to hit theaters on December 22nd, 2021, a year later than the
  • original release date of Christmas Day 2020.
  • Downey and Law are both set to return as Holmes and Watson, and Narcos' Chris Brancato is
  • set to write the screenplay.
  • Though Ritchie is rumored to return as director yet again, he has not yet officially signed
  • on.
