Marvel Studios dominated the box office this 2022 with “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Despite the fact that the premiere of the sequel to "Avatar" is still missing, everything seems that the production company will follow the same path by 2023. However, next year the film industry will have the return of several stories that have already been told, then they became classics, and now they will have a new interpretation.
After this 2022, which served as a pilot year for the COVID-19 post-pandemic, for next year the industry hopes to recover what was lost in 2020, when the confinement completely limited it.
Some titles that manage to stand out are "Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania" in superhero films, "Fast X" and "Creed III" in action, "Dune 2" in science fiction or the new version of "The Exorcist" in the horror genre. Next, we leave a list of other films that are the most anticipated of 2023.
This movie stands out among the five titles that Marvel Studios has scheduled for next year. It will be the sequel to "Captain Marvel" and will be directed by Nia DaCosta, who became known with "Candyman" or with some episodes of the hit Netflix series, "Top Boy." The movie is expected for July 28.
“The Color Purple”
In 1985, Oprah made her acting debut in this film that Steven Spielberg adapted from the successful book by Alice Walker. The story earned him multiple directorial nominations at the Oscars, and by 2023 he will have a new version. On this occasion, this film will be interpreted as a musical and will feature another debut, that of the singer HER under the direction of Blitz Bazawule. It will be released on December 20, 2023.
The first images of Ryan Gosling as Ken and Margot Robbie as Barbie went around the world. The challenge of bringing the most famous doll of all time to a 'live action' is led by Greta Gerwig, who has just reaped some success with the adaptation of “Little Women”. "Barbie" is expected to see the light in movie theaters on July 21.
“The Little Mermaid”
In the second half of this year, there was no trailer that caused more controversy than that of "The Little Mermaid". The fact that the iconic character of Ariel is played by a young black woman has given rise to a contrast of opinions between those who agree or disagree. The truth is that the film is ready, it will be directed by Rob Marshall, and it will hit theaters on May 26.
After the film released in 2005, which became a classic, Paul King is tasked with doing justice to the character of Willy Wonka in his early days. It has a luxury cast that has Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Colman, Sally Hawkins or Rowan Atkinson to name a few. The film is preliminarily dated for December 15, 2023.
The first installment of "Aquaman" became the biggest hit of 'DC Extended Universe' and Warner's second highest-grossing film. With Jason Mamoa and Amber Heard leading the cast, “Aquaman 2” wants to become the film that competes head-to-head with Marvel Studios movies. The production is directed by James Wan and its release date will be December 25, 2023.
