2022 is bringing out a lot of great movies to fill our need for entertainment. There’s a lot of great films coming from multiple genres to fit anyone’s taste. With that being said, here are 10 exciting movies set to release this year.

Death on the Nile (Feb. 11th, Mystery)

The most recent movie coming out on this list, Death on the Nile is a murder mystery set in the 1930’s aboard a ferry voyage on the Nile River. When a couple’s honeymoon is interrupted by the bride being murdered, all fingers are pointed at each other. Almost coincidently, there’s a detective amongst the passengers, ready to get on the case.

It’s up to Detective Hercule Periot (Kenneth Branagh) to find out who killed Linnet Doyle (Gal Gadot) before the murderer strikes again. People watching the movie can follow along with the clues and twists to guess who the killer is, up until the grand reveal. This movie is an adaptation of the novel written by Agatha Christie. This jawing mystery movie released on February 11th, so you can see it in theaters now.


Uncharted (Today, Action)

Uncharted stars Tom Holland and Mark Walhberg in a thrilling film adaptation of the popular video game series. Loosely inspired by these games, the movie will tell the story of Nathan Drake and his quest for lost artifacts, which usually gets him into life-or-death situations. 

Tom will star as Nathan Drake, and Mark will play his partner-in-crime, Sullivan. Their quest for $5 billion will pit them against foes with a large arsenal of weapons and mercenaries. Nathan also hopes to find his long-lost brother, who disappeared while looking for the exact same treasure. This movie will appeal to fans of the games both old and new, or those who just want to enjoy a good movie. 

This action-packed adventure will arrive in theaters February 18th.

The Batman (March 4th, Superhero)

Batman is a classic comic book hero that is easily recognizable by anyone. There are many film adaptations of Batman, but a new reboot is on the horizon. This new Batman movie will retell the upcomings of Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattison) as Batman, teaming up with Commissioner Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) and (Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz) to face off against The Riddler (Paul Dano) and Penguin (Colin Farrell).

A lot of fans are saying that this may be the best Batman movie yet, because of how Matt Reeves (director) is staying true to the DC material. This may turn out to be the next Dark Knight trilogy. The comic book movie of the year comes out March 4th.

Turning Red (March 11th, Family)

Disney and Pixar are back with another animated film coming up that’s great for the whole family. Turning Red is about a girl named Mei (Rosalie Chiang), who is cursed with turning into a giant red panda whenever she gets excited. She tries to navigate her perfect life and control her emotions, but soon learns that maybe a little freedom isn’t such a bad thing.

This movie is a coming-of-age story that many may relate to when watching. The theme of letting your emotions be free is an interesting message to explore. This heartfelt film will actually be skipping theaters and released exclusively on Disney Plus on March 11th.

Morbius (April 1st, Superhero)

Marvel fans are eagerly awaiting Morbius’ solo film, which will be another Sony/Marvel movie. A biologist, now turned vampire, Dr. Michael Morbius (Jared Leto) is given superhuman abilities when his cure for his blood disease goes wrong. His powers came with a lust for blood, so he’ll have to kill in order to survive.

Morbius is similar to Venom, who also got a solo film, as they are both anti-heroes and are foes of Spider-Man. In fact, the trailer shows Spider-Man, the Daily Bugle, and Michael Keaton’s Vulture (from Spider Man: Homecoming), so this movie may be more connected to the MCU than we thought. Morbius’ debut in his film will come out on April 1st.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (April 15th, Fantasy)

Acting as the third movie in the Fantastic Beasts film series, The Secrets of Dumbledore will be a crossover with the Harry Potter universe, one of J. K. Rowling’s most notable franchises. This movie is a prequel years before the events of Harry Potter. 

Professor Dumbledore (Jude Law) entrusts the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) when the mad wizard Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) returns once again to seize power. Recruiting new beasts and wizards, Dumbledore and Newt must form an army to fight Grindelwald. This movie is great for those who love J. K. Rowling’s stories. This fantasy adventure comes to theaters on April 15th.

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness (May 6th, Superhero)

Marking another Marvel movie on this list, this one will definitely be huge for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Multiverse of Madness is about Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) having to face off against a huge threat when the multiverse is broken. He enlists the help of Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), along with new allies from across the universes.

This movie takes place after the events of No Way Home, where Doctor Strange cast the spell that causes the conflict of this movie. This movie is also connected to Loki and Wandavision, both which are available on Disney Plus. This movie will literally flip the script on the Marvel Cinematic Universe and change the way we see our favorite characters. Multiverse of Madness comes out on May 6th.

Jurassic World: Dominion (June 10th, Science Fiction)

The long running movie franchise about “people not learning their mistakes about reviving dinosaurs” is back. Set 4 years after the previous movie (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), this one will be the final movie to end the Jurassic World trilogy. The movie is about how the world is dealing with having to live their daily lives with the released dinosaurs now running around.

This movie will feature a large array of characters from the movies, many of which they are returning from previous films. Some of them include Dr. Allen Grant (Sam Niell), Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) and Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum). This movie may be the biggest one to feature a unique story from the films. It will arrive in theaters on June 10th.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) (October 7th, Superhero)

Winning the Academy Award for best animated feature in 2019, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was met with praise from almost everyone. Audiences loved seeing a movie that dived into the idea of introducing the multiverse and having more than one Spider-Man. The unique 24 FPS animation style made it stand out and appealed to many. And now, we’re getting a sequel.

Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Stanfield) are back and diving back into the multiverse. We also saw a glimpse at a new Spider-Man from the future, Spider-Man 2099, who is Miguel O’Hara (Oscar Issac). Apart from that, not much is known about the plot and the new universes they’ll go to, but the hype is already starting. It’s possible that we may see different animation styles depending on which universes they go to. This highly anticipated animated feature will come out on October 7th.

Halloween Ends (October 14th, Horror)

The most notable slasher movie series out there, Halloween is a classic and loved by many. This new movie will make it the 13th movie in the saga. And from the looks of it, the final movie in the series.

No information about the movie has been announced other than the title, but it appears that this will be the final stand between Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney). With any hope, the reign of terror of Michael Myers may finally come to an end this Halloween. This anticipated conclusion to the saga comes out on October 14th.
