33 huge movies coming to cinemas in 2022

We have a lot of blockbusters to make up for next year!

With 2020 pretty much cancelled as far cinematic releases were concerned, there are now A LOT of big movies vying for cinema time, like buses stuck in traffic.


Some will remain in 2021, pending cinemas being able to successfully reopen safely in the later half of the year, but some more have been delayed to 2022, which isn't to mention the OTHER big movies that were already scheduled for 2022.

So, with that in mind, and in no way is this a comprehensive list (we fully expect a new movie or a date shift before we finish this sentence), here are 33 movies due for release in 2022 that we're very excited about.


The fifth entry in the self-aware horror franchise will focus on a woman returning to her home town to try to find out who has been committing a series of vicious crimes. Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette are all set to make a comeback too.
