5 upcoming movies in 2024


Directed by: Arturo Perez Jr., Samantha Jayne
Starring: Angourie Rice, Reneé Rapp, Auliʻi Cravalho, Bebe Wood, Jaquel Spivey, Tina Fey, Tim Meadows, Jenna Fischer, Jon Hamm, Ashley Park
Opening on: January 12, 2024

While it might appear to be a rehash of the 2004 comedy, this fresh take isn’t exactly that. Penned by Tina Fey, who both wrote the original and makes a cameo in this movie, it’s an adaptation of the Mean Girls stage musical, itself derived from the original film. Angourie Rice portrays newcomer Cady Heron, with Reneé Rapp stepping into the shoes of the lead Mean Girl, Regina George.


Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
Starring: Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård
Opening on: March 1, 2024

Initially, the sequel’s fate was uncertain due to the first installment’s simultaneous release on HBO Max. Fortunately, Warner Bros. decided to proceed, granting Denis Villeneuve the opportunity. Part Two introduces esteemed talents such as Florence Pugh, Léa Seydoux, Austin Butler, and Christopher Walken to the cast as Villeneuve continues the saga, narrating the latter portion of Frank Herbert’s monumental sci-fi novel.

Returning stars include Carrie Coon, McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, and Paul Rudd, joined by newcomers Kumail Nanjiani and Patton Oswalt. Additionally, the film will indeed be set in New York, featuring the iconic firehouse from the original films, a teaser revealed at the end of Afterlife.

In the sequel to the Monsterverse’s 2021 epic clash, the iconic kaiju duo is making a comeback for another showdown. The synopsis suggests that Godzilla and Kong may team up to face a mysterious threat lurking in our world. Dan Stevens will play the lead role, while Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle will reprise their roles from GvK. Adam Wingard, who directed the previous film, will once again be in charge of this installment.

The Fall Guy (2024)

Directed by: David Leitch
Starring: Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt
Opening on: May 3, 2024

Is there anyone better than David Leitch when it comes to directing action films nowadays? Leitch, who used to work as a stuntman, has made a name for himself with his work on movies like John Wick, Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, and Hobbs & Shaw. He’s now taking on a new challenge with an ’80s TV show adaptation about a stuntman who’s also a bounty hunter, which is right up his alley. Ryan Gosling will be playing the lead role, alongside Emily Blunt in this exciting new project.

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (2024)

Directed by: Wes Ball
Starring: Owen Teague, Freya Allan, Peter Macon, Eka Darville, and Kevin Durand
Opening on: May 24, 2024

At the conclusion of 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes, Caesar, the chimpanzee who led the apes to ascendancy, met his end. It marked the close of the reboot trilogy in the classic sci-fi series. Yet, the story doesn’t end there. (Granted, there’s a distinction between apes and monkeys, but bear with us.) Wes Ball, known for directing the Maze Runner films, takes the helm for the fourth installment. Set many years after the events in War, this chapter continues the saga.
