Last updated: December 26, 2020


Like a disaster waiting silently to happen to us all, the year 2020 came as one of a kind for all the negative reasons. Still, there are glimpse of positives. Maybe a stunning reality for all that truly, there are two sides to every coin. Despite the global horrors that ravaged the year, many of us yet managed to have some fun. The movie industry worked tirelessly to keep us sane and protected from the possible depression and emotional trauma the year may have caused us. It is perhaps therefore time to review the pandemic year while also looking handsomely ahead with high hopes and expectations for the future. It is time to consider what the movie industry has for us within the prism of the top 10 new Hollywood blockbusters movies coming in 2021.

Critically, what would 2020 have been like without the movie industry around us? It will be safe to call it a modern definition of boredom. Times again, the entertainment industry has proven its quality and worth as a friend of the masses and an indispensable company when we all arguably have none. In spite of the lockdown that almost fully kept the world quit of its norms and activities, everyone could only retire to their homes and watch the screens for lift of hope. And yes, this has many the audacity of hope through the trying time.

The coronavirus actually halted the production and release of most movies throughout the year, thus delaying filming and release dates. Streaming services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu still provided classical entertainment with an impressive backlog of movies intended for theatrical releases. Even so, some releases intended for the year were pushed to the next. From superheroes to thrillers, actions, fictions, emotions and other niches, now we can preview the next year and look to welcome the surge of big titles and names back to theater in our list of the top 10 new Hollywood blockbusters movies coming in 2021.

Coming to America

If you are a big fan of Eddie Murphy, you can expect something big in 2021. Eddie Murphy is reteaming with Arsenio Hall for a sequel to this new classic. The 1988 pilot American romantic comedy film saw Eddie Murphy who is also the original story creator starred in the lead role. He played the character of Akeem Joffer, the crown prince of the fictional African nation represented in the movie. Just like it is meant to represent the average predicament of an African, Joffer travels to the United States in the hopes of finding love and marriage. The movie was planned for a spin-off television series in 1989. It was however not picked up for a series.

The movie was directed by John Landis. This particular movie was however not the first partnership between the duo of John Landis and Eddie Murphy as they have previously worked on a comedy hit, “Trading Places”. It ended up being an impressive work as the film was nominated for two Oscar Awards category including Best Costume Design and Makeup by Deborah Nadoolman Landis and Rick Baker respectively.

All indications and quality considerations point out to the fact that we can expect a similar positive feat of nominations in the new sequel. A lot of work has actually gone into the production of the new movie. An earlier announcement was made in 2017 for the impending production of the film, this time with Kevin Misher as the producer, and Sheffield and Blaustein, the screenwriters.

According to a news publication released in January 2019 about the movie, Eddie Murphy will be reprising his role in the sequel and Craig Brewer will be working as the director. The movie was scheduled for an official theatrical release on December 18, 2020, but the pandemic actually made this unrealistic. That said, the new release is expected to be digital on Prime Video on the 5th of March, 2021.

The King’s Man

March 2021 seem to have a lot in store for us in the Hollywood movie industry, and the famous 20th Century Studio is getting a credit for this anticipated release. This is going to be a spy action-comedy movie written by Kan Gajdusek and directed by Mathew Vaughin who co-produced the movie alongside David Reid and Adam Bohling. Wikipedia has it that the movie is a prequel and a third in fact in the Kingsman movie series. The Mathew Vaughn story is said to be loosely based on a comic book called Kingsman. The book was however created by Mark Miller and Dave Gibbons, although published by Marvel’s Icon comics imprint.

The release of the film has met several delays in 2020. September was the last month announced for the release of the movie in 2020 until it became impossible yet again due to covid-19 pandemic. A few dates have been announced for release in 2021 too. These include, 12th, 14th and 26th of February respectively. Now, the movie will be released on the 12th of March 2021, a new date which appeared more realistic to the owners.

Commentators are in high hopes as much as the movie audience. Some of them have said that they think of the movie as “The League of Extraordinarily Tailored Gentlemen”. The movie is considered as having a big advantage of visiting the origins of undercover organization as the chance to roll out a famous actors and more famous historical figures. Generally, audiences are to expect over-the-top action and plenty of innuendo.

The Suicide Squads

If you have always followed the adventures of Harley Quinn, Rick Flag and their team of assembled supervillain, then you can expect to do this superhero yet again in 2021. Screenrant.com reckoned that Suicide Squad is the second live-action film that is based on a comic book. It appears to be more of a soft reboot to the film series that features returning characters from David Ayer’s movie. As it is, one doesn’t have to watch the previous movie to understand this particular one as it has a storyline which although is continuous has its own full-fledge trajectory.

This movie is both written and directed by James Gunn. It has the ragtag group of antiheroes led by Amanda Waller whose roles would be to perform good deeds in exchange for redemption or a lighter incarceration sentence at least.

The Suicide Squad expected release date is August 6, 2021. However, James Gunn revealed the stellar casts for the movie as earlier as 13th of September 2019. Its previous edition which was released in 2016 boasts a talented cast with pretty more humor than previous DCEU efforts. A similar A recent report about the anticipated 2021 release meanwhile stated that James Gunn is unhappy with Warner Bros’s decision to move its film to HBO Max because an unsatisfactory compensation followed it. This yet wouldn’t be enough reason not to include an exquisite project as this in our top 10 new Hollywood blockbusters movies coming in 2021.

No Time to Die

Danny Boyle may have left as the original director of this movie, Daniel Craig may have been injured along the line, and the pandemic may also have caused some delays. “No Time To Die” finally found its time to be released despite all odds against it. It is just a case of better late than never yet as Craig perhaps marks his last outing in tuxedo before he hands back his license to kill.

In the movie whose screenplay was written by the duo of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, James Bond, the lead character is revealed to have left active service. His peace is however short-lived as Felix Leiter, an old friend from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) visits him to ask for his help in a mission. This mission led Bond onto the trial of a mysterious villain who is armed with dangerous new technology. The rest of the unfolding is there to be seen while you watch the movie slated for release on the 2nd of April 2021.

The little spoilers we could afford to give you at the moment is that its plot details are unsurprisingly scarce. We also do know that the movie kicks off with Bond enjoying himself with some R&R after the events of Spectre in Jamaica. Actor Rami Malek will be acting the main villain in this movie while the likes of Ana de Armas, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear and lots more are featured. Behind the camera, Cary Fukunaga, a true detective and maniac director made history as the first American to helm an official Bond movie. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, a Fleabag creator star is also a key figure on the writing team. You wouldn’t dare to miss the pack of suspense and action here. These alone count it worthy to be in the league of our 10 new Hollywood blockbusters movies coming in 2021.

Fast and Furious 9

If you ever get tired of series movies, fast and furious will never be one of them. It is a first of its kind movie that successfully combined street smart with sports in form of car racing, bit of fictions, romance, lifestyle and action. Just imagine the massive beauty and entertainment personified.

The series has however stunningly morphed from a street racer series into a group of superheroes that are in the mission of saving the world. With nine films already registered in his name, this installment promises to follow Dominic and his family facing off with Dominic’s brother with the character name Jakob, who is a deadly assassin working for their old enemy. Han is also going to make a reappearance in this movie according to the movie trailer released in 2020. The fans of this more than a decade long series can treat Han’s reappearance as the BIG news.

A lot of people have said that Justin Lin (the movie director) has a great work in his hand to ensure that fans and audiences continue to love the series. This edition of Fast and Furious is sequel to The Fate of The Furious released in 2017.

Just like many movie release hit snags in 2020 because of the unexpected coronavirus outbreak that restricted a lot of humanly possible activities, fast and furious 9 was expected to be released in the May of 2020. Universal Studio made the decision to postpone the release of this edition of fast and furious because theaters remain closed in Italy, China and South Korea where the virus has since hit the highest. There were also mounting sense that certain theaters will close in the U.S as the outbreak continues to spread.

Vin Diesel made a social media announcement in this regard too. In his words, he said “We feel all the love and the anticipation you have for the next chapter in our saga. It’s especially tough to let you know that we have to move the release date of the film. It’s become clear that it won’t be possible for all of our fans around the world to see the film this May”.

We also feel that the logical thing to do for economic reason is to postpone the release for the benefit of both audience and producer. As it stands, the movie will globally open in April 2021 and specifically, on April 2nd in the U.S. I don’t think there is any argument at all that this movie should be among the top 10 new Hollywood blockbusters movies coming in 2021.

Mortal Kombat

Would you dare to look past this interesting and notoriously bloody game series? You won’t! The video-game series is once again preparing for movies theater. The truth is that the first attempt to do this has not exactly aged well, but there are expectations that James Wan, the producer still has the tricks up his sleeves to bring us all the fighting saga back on screen in the Mortal Kombat.

The release of the upcoming movie has been delayed until April 2021 after being initially slated for January. The movie director, Simon McQuoid confirmed that the movie is going to be a reboot of the original computer game called the same name. The film has also experienced some past failures which are commercial. However, Warner Brother are prepared to release the movie simultaneous in Cinemas and HBO Max.

The release delay has been touted as part of a wider effort to ensure the film is available in both cinemas and homes. This hybrid model was created as a strategic response to the impact of the coronavirus global pandemic.

It has been revealed that Tadanobu Asano who played the role of Hogun in Thor leads the cast as Raiden. It features other fighters that include Jax, Nitara, Kano, Shang Tsung and many more. It has been equally revealed that Johnny Cage will appear on screen even though no one actor has yet been announced. We just all have to wait for what the war/action movie has in store for us. This is definitely something to anticipate in 2021.

Last Night in Soho

Do you know Edgar Wright? You are definitely having more of him in 2021. He is certainly returning with what will be slightly less funny and more horror than we are used to have from him. Wright is definitely having a first shot at full-fledge horror here having been known for his grasps on visual comedy and sleek action filmmaking.

Edgar hinted on the imminent release, “Late Night in Soho” on Facebook on the 26th of May 2020. In the process, he left a slight hint on the storyline. He spoke about how the Pandemic has been a factor to a delay in the release of the movie. In same vein, he spoke of his excitement about the package he is making up for us all to experience in homes and on big screen near us soonest.

Basically, the movie is a London-set psychological thriller that follows the story of a young girl, a passionate fashion designer who mysteriously enters the 1960 where she encountered her idol who is a dazzling winnable singer. In London at the time, things seem to fall apart with shady consequences and so it is a time of some entertaining horrors for her.

Since “Last Night in Soho” has missed his assigned date in 2020, a new release date has been announced in 2021. April 23, 2021 will eventually be the date we will all be looking forward to. At this time, the movie is expected to be in direct box office competition with a new action/thriller Casino Royale. We are impressed this movie will go down as one of Edgar Wright’s finest. This is the reason it is included in our top 10 new Hollywood blockbusters movies coming in 2021.

Black Widow

All the fans of this favorite comic-based female movie superhero should gather here to welcome a new release from her. From various observations, Black Widow has popped up on a lot of films update websites as one of the hottest movies to expect in 2021. Like most of the films on our top ten new Hollywood blockbuster movies to watch out for in 2021, this movie was due to hit off Marvel Phase 4 but that is now said to be WandaVision’s honor. Black Widow however remain undefeated as it is set to be released on 7th of May 2021, months after Disney had previously announced September 2020 as the release date.

Black Widow was directed by Cate Shorthand and saw the movie stars Scarlett Johansson returned as Natasha Romanoff, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbour Alexi, O-T Fagbenle as Mason and Rachel Weiz as another Black Widow. The taskmaster’s identity remains unknown but we can assure you to prepare for an awesome action-packed movie with some important messaging.

Talking about the production plan, the filming of Black Widow began in 2004 under the umbrella of Lionsgate. David Hayter is both the writer and director of this movie, but it was unable to move forward for significant reasons. The film’s right to character was reverted to Marvel Studio in June 2006.

The premise of the film is however straightforward and interesting. After the events of Captain America civil war, Romanoff remained alone and was forced to confront a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past. She has to do everything to deal with her history as a spy, plus the broken relationships left in her became awake long before she became an Avenger.

West Side Story

Now, let’s bring something entirely new to you with the West Side Story. The perhaps iconic best-known musical of all time is finally getting its first movie adaption since 1961. According to information from IMDb, the award-winning adaptation of the classic Romeo and Juliet romantic tragedy are represented as feuding families that became two warrying New York city gangs in this movie. These are the White Jet, led by Riff and the Latino Sharks, led by Bernado.

Maria and Tony (the two lovers that replaced Romeo and Juliet in the movie) find themselves entangled in bitter gangster battles from their family ends. Foreseeing the possibility of a disastrous consequence, Maria had to send Tony to end the fight in the beautifully-mounted, emotion-ridden, impressive and violent musical. This movie is generally a fascinating translation of Broadway to the scope of motion picture at large.

According to the released date, the film will go live on the 10th of December, 2021. Let’s all be on the watch for something impressive with this release.

Uncharted

Uncharted actually got charted on our list of top 10 new Hollywood blockbusters movies coming in 2021. The movie met a lot of low in the production process including the changing of seven directors (yes, seven!) but it is finally a wrap as it is planning a release on the 16th of July, 2021. The movie is a Tom Holland’s adaptation of the game in cinemas for everyone’s enjoyment. No one would expect this to be a wrap after the turbulent production process, but winners will always win.

In this movie, Mark Wahlberg will play the role of Sully. This is a mentor-type figure to Holland’s Nathan Drake. The set will be a little different from the game anyway as it will center on the older versions of the characters. One better up here is that you can expect many sequels to this movie. Let us all wait to experience the reality.
