8 most anticipated films of 2020: from "Birds of Prey" to "Dune"

A shot from the movie "Birds of Prey: The Amazing Story of Harley Quinn"

In 2016, the movie "Suicide Squad" was released, after which the DC universe character Harley Quinn, played by Margot Robbie, had a huge crowd of fans who began to look forward to the solo performance of this heroine.

And now, after almost four years, such a long—awaited tape will finally appear on the screens - Harley left her toxic lover Joker, teamed up with other cool girls (such as Black Canary, Huntress and Rene Montoya) and, judging by the teasers, they will not anneal weakly. The cool thing is that this is just the beginning — a whole trilogy of films with Harley is planned ahead. Release date: February 6, 2020 (Russia)

A shot from the movie "Sonic in the cinema"

If you don't know who Sonic is, then please show us your passport. The iconic blue super-fast hedgehog from the Sega video game series took a surprisingly long time to get to the big screen (recall that the original game about his adventures was released back in 1991).

But it will finally happen, and the company will Sonic will be more than worthy: his best friend, policeman Tom Wachowski, will be played by James Marsden, whom you probably remember from the role of Cyclops from the superhero franchise "X-Men". And the main antagonist, the mad scientist Dr. Eggman, will be played by the unique Jim Carrey. Release date: February 20, 2020 (Russia)

A shot from the movie "Top Gun: Maverick"

If the movie was really good, then fans will be happy to see its sequel after any amount of time. Even after 34 years. Yes, that's how much has passed since the release of the original "Top Gun" (known in the Russian box office as "The Best Shooter").

Tom Cruise, who clearly demonstrates the "Mission" franchise: impossible", that time has no power over him, will return to the performance of his other iconic role — pilot Peter "Maverick" Mitchell, who will have to train Bradley Bradshaw, the son of his friend Nick "Goose" Bradshaw, who tragically died in the first part. Release date: July 16, 2020 (Russia)

A shot from the movie "It's not time to die"

It seems that James Bond has always been in the cinema, but this is not true — only since 1954. And in 2020, the 25th anniversary picture about the legendary spy will be released on the big screens, which will also be the fifth for Daniel Craig in this role (although for several years the actor has stated that he would rather cut his wrists than play Agent 007 again).

And as a result, a very unexpected turn happened: not only is Craig again looking sternly and suspiciously from the poster of a fresh movie, but also the role of the new 007 agent, who replaced the retired Bond, should be played by a dark-skinned girl. Considering that for more than 40 years this role has been played exclusively by men, the film promises to be not "another", but a breakthrough. Release date: April 9, 2020 (Russia)

A shot from the movie "Black Widow"

In 2020, DC is preparing two solo albums of its heroines at once and Marvel, which in 2019 for the first time released its first film dedicated to a female superhero (it was "Captain Marvel"), and will not stand aside.

Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow) finally got her "personal" picture, which, as in all previous Marvel films, will be played by Scarlett Johansson. The action of the film will unfold after the events of the film "The First Avenger: Confrontation", and we will learn details about Natasha's past, we will see her husband, a Soviet superhero nicknamed the Red Guardian, and, according to the list of characters, Iron Man should also appear in the film (of course, he will be played by Robert Downey Jr. — who else?). Release date: April 30, 2020 (world).

A shot from the movie "Mulan"

For several years now, Disney has been delighting its fans with adaptations of its best cartoons. The story of Mulan, a brave Chinese girl who joined the army instead of her sick father, was supposed to turn into a movie back in 2010, but filming was postponed.

However, in the end, the production got off the ground, and the famous Chinese actress Liu Yifei was chosen for the role of the main character, and New Zealander Niki Caro took the director's chair. Recall that the original cartoon about the Chinese warrior was released in 1998. Release date: March 27, 2020 (world).

A shot from the movie "Wonder Woman"

Wonder Woman returns to the big screens three years after her first solo film, and the synopsis of the picture is very intriguing: Gal Gadot's heroine will have to face businessman Maxwell Lord, who collects magical artifacts and promises to help Amazon resurrect her deceased lover Steve Trevor. And the question is — will she accept this offer?

It is impossible to say for sure, but the performer of the role of Steve Chris Pine is listed in the list of actors, so you can expect anything. By the way, the director of both films Patty Jenkins said that she already has the idea of a third picture about Diana. No details, but it seems that there will be no more returns to the past. Release date: October 31, 2020 (Russia)

8 most anticipated films of 2020: from "Birds of Prey" to "Dune"

A shot from the movie "Dune" by David Lynch

The original "Dune" is a science fiction novel by American writer Frank Herbert, published in the mid—60s, telling about distant galaxies and the struggle of rebels against the empire. Does that sound familiar? No wonder: it was "Dune" that was the source of inspiration for "Star Wars".

And by the way, this book has already been filmed, and not by "someone", but by David Lynch. It was in the 80s, and the main role of Paul Atreides in that movie was played by Kyle MclOchlen (he also played Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks). In the relaunch of Atreides, the youngest Oscar nominee Timothy Chalamet will play, and we will also see Zendaya and Javier Bardem in him. Release date: December 17, 2020 (Russia)
