Welcome Return to movies, A special series of articles in which we explore how we feel about returning to movie theaters after the epidemic. We start with the time-honored FSR tradition: a list of films we can’t wait to hit theaters in 2021.
Do you remember watching movies in theaters the most? For many of us, it’s been more than 15 months since we’ve switched to the hard carpets of our local Cineplex, carefully watching the detailed stand-up ads for the upcoming blockbusters, trying not to spill different large popcorn before us. Make all the way back to Theater 1 make. Then you will be forgiven if you need a moment to remember.
One of the things the COVID epidemic has taken away from us is a sense of normalcy that finds itself in a matinee on a Friday afternoon. We may be able to see if our mask is right or we are observing our theater’s social distance rules properly. And when we get back to that safe place, where our relationship with cinema is in its purest state, it will take some time. In time, the movies feel safe again and for many of us, the theater will feel like home again.
Anyway when you decide that the world feels safe enough to go back to the cinemas, we hope you will. The sooner we can all return to deeper shared experiences in a black room under the flicker of a movie projector, the better. When that time comes, this list is here to help. We’ve put together a list of 68 movies that we hope will hit theaters before the end of 2020, each hitting the strings with at least one of our team members. This is the list of films for which we would be willing to put on real pants and venture back into the world. We hope you’ll be here when you’re ready.
Movies to watch in 2021 with theatrical release dates
We start films that have their release dates set and announced. As always, this is a subject of change in the whims of chaotic Hollywood executives. That said, this section is presented in the expected chronological order.
Spiral: Watching from the book (now in theaters)
When it comes to movies, there’s something to be said for the incredible comfort that comes with being trusted. Saw Movies. We know how to edit mania and expect thumping scores, and yes, there will be blood. For the ninth entry story in the franchise, Chris Rock promises a serious return to the twisted games of Jigsaw in the fresh and clever perspective of the original concept. Of Saw Movies have always benefited from the anxiety-stimulating claustrophobia of the big screen and the duplicitous reactions of musculoskeletal audiences. For fans who have been patient with the trend of austerities leading to asceticism in recent years, seeing a big, bold, bloody display of sickness will make the dream come true again. (Anna Swanson)
Quiet Place Second (May 22)
When it came out, the concept of John Krasinski Quiet place Was so remarkably authentic that a sequel was much needed. Fortunately, after a one-year delay due to the COVID ban, Quiet place second The end is about to hit theaters; And it looks like the wait will be over. The film follows the same cast of characters with the same premise: blood-thirsty monsters are ready to kill you if you shout. This time though, instead of having some sense of domestic normalcy, the family is caught up in the turmoil of the outside world. The trailer demonstrates the same tension as the original, but is expanded, as the characters need to brave the elements to find the rest of the survivors there, (any Celian Murphy fans at home?) Need to look at the screen, that’s it. (Aurora Amidon)
Krulla (May 22)
This list includes some of the movies we’ve already screened Cruel Maybe there’s one I didn’t want to include. But here’s the truth: It’s fun. Costume work from Jenny Bevan (whose work you will recognize) Crazy Max: Fury Road) Is fantastic, the soundtrack bumps, and the film’s fun cast is living their most messy and stupid life. The film revolves around a competition between young Cruella (Emma Stone) and the powerful fashion designer The Baroness (Emma Thompson), and they are doing some great work, but it is the supporting cast that comes with some of the best moments of the film. Joel Fry and Paul Walter Hauser, in particular. If you’re overwhelmed by the energy of the movie’s trailer, it’s worth watching as much as possible. (Neil Miller)
Undine (June 4)
From Christian Petjold, Director of Transit and Phoenix, Undine Mysterious lies have roots. The film follows a historian named Undine (Paula Beer), whose boyfriend turns the world upside down when she leaves him.

An Undine is a European fairy-tale rooted water nymph that turns a man into love, but if her lover leaves her, she dies. It looks like Undine There will be a fresh, modern take on sinister myths with mysterious scenes and subtle, powerful performances. (Aurora Amidon)
Heights (June 11)
John M. Chu-directed Lin-Manuel Miranda’s pre-privatHamilton The stage hit has already been called a “summer movie” by critics who have watched it. And it’s not entirely surprising given the electrical nature of the film’s trailer. It also stars Anthony Ramos, who was one of the best part of Loki Hamilton. And I’ve never had the pleasure of watching a stage version, there’s something so magnetic about the energy of this film that I can’t help but imagine it’s hard to move the person sitting next to me to the rhythm. , If I’m honest, I’m probably out of rhythm – don’t judge me).

Sparks Brothers (June 1)
When our own Brianna Zigler The document was reviewed in Sundance in January, He highlighted the fact that director Edgar Wright is bringing his trademark dynamic energy to the world of music documentaries for the first time. It all feels like an energetic, loving tribute to a legendary pop duo full of talk heads from across a music and pop culture map. Ever since Russell and Ron Mile hit the scene in the early 1970’s, this is evidence of the underrated influence they have had with their music. It’s also the kind of document that Loud is going to distribute a soundtrack to the audience through movie theater speakers, making it a perfect re-entry point for music-loving cinephiles.

Luca (June 1 17)
If you’re looking for your fix on the Italian beach this year, look no further. Pixar Storyboard follows the friendship between Luca (Jacob Tremblay) and Alberto (Jack Dylan Grazer), the first film directed by Enrico Casarosa. Although this is a turning point in friendship, both boys are hiding the fact that they are actually sea monsters. With no shortage of bubbly aesthetics and laughter, Luke seems to be enjoying it – and maybe even a few tears. When it comes to Pixar and friendship stories,Toy Story, Up, Monster Inc., To name a few), you can certainly expect an array of emotions. In addition, the film itself is dedicated to the late Ennio Morricone, who was originally created to create the soundtrack, which is very emotional in itself. So, whatever it is that catches your eye about this movie, it seems like there really is something for everyone. (Aurora Amidon)
F9 (June 2225)
To quote Tom Cruise: “Big movie, big screen.” What is that Fast and furious Movies – Bombardment and more are for delightful performances. These films are just as big as theirs, in both action and emotion. The film’s delay made it even more exciting as fans teased him back in the series. It’s been a long time coming, a wait full of pain and hope, and anyone who worries about this family can count the days until the film is released. The multibillion-dollar franchise is the cornerstone of modern blockbuster filmmaking and last, Fast saga, The ascetic assures the kind of excitement that most viewers don’t even hesitate to pass.

Inside the Werewolves (June 22)
Returning to movie theaters is not just about watching blockbusters. Yes, there will be big-budget cinematic adventures, but we are also very excited to return to a world where we can watch and support small films. Enter Werewolves inside, Adapted from a scary-comedy popular Ubisoft VR game that will debut at the Tribeca Film Festival in early June before a limited release from the IFC for the first time. The plot is simple: the inhabitants of a small town are swept away by a snowstorm and terrorized by mysterious creatures, forcing them to question each other in search of answers. The real draw here is the cast – Sam Richardson (VEEP) And Milana Vantrub (who you probably know as Lily from AT&T ads but have also been very funny in web-based comedy ventures) lead a cast that includes Michael Watkins (including Hulu) Comfortable) And Harvey Guillon (who plays Guillermo in it) What we do in the shadows Television program). If the concept isn’t enough for a sale, these four comic talents alone are worth showing. (Neil Miller)
Jola (June 300)
The film, based on the infamous Twitter thread, was met with a huge positive response to the world premiere held at the 20-year-old Sundanese Film Festival – the Final Personality Festival before everything got serious – then the * gestures vague * epidemic. Not only was the film’s dramatic release pushed, it didn’t exist until recently, leaving many of the film’s most famous pioneers overwhelmed. Then finally, at the end of March this year, the official trailer dropped a year after Unconscious Thumb Tweedling, and a release date was set for June for0. Zola (Taylor Page), the title dancer behind a waitress and pole, and the eccentric, mysterious Stephanie (Riley Keefe), who meet by chance while waiting at Zola Tables. Stephanie is also a dancer, and she comes to dance with Zola at an allegedly big money club in Florida – as long as things just look good to be true, they go completely off-the-train. Having the privilege of watching the film in Sundance last year, I can confirm that it is fast, funny, fun and amazing; Just like the outrageous story it is based on. (Brianna Zigler)
