But there will also be room for original titles that have raised great expectations: 'Mickey 17', by Bong Joon Ho; 'Back to black', about Amy Winehouse; 'Challengers', the new release by Luca Guadagnino, with Zendaya; 'If', one about imaginary friends directed by John Krasinski, or 'The Watchers', directorial debut by Ishana Shyamalan, daughter of the director of 'The Sixth Sense'

Sequels that promise good cinema

Without prejudice to the fact that it is always good to see the film from which a sequel is based, the list that follows predicts that the memory will be enough for a happy landing in theaters and there will be a lot of spectators waiting to fill them.

The second part that will be very good, for sure. Like the highly anticipated 'Dune: Part Two', directed by Canadian Denis Villeneuve, who made the first in 2021, and which retains Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson or Javier Bardem and incorporates Florence Pugh or Austin Butler.

Or 'Inside Out 2', with the unbeatable proposal of seeing Riley nine years later reaching adolescence with her avalanche of sensations and a new emotion, Anxiety, in that brain of hers that continues to give way to Sadness, Joy, Fear, Anger, and Disgust.

With 'Beetlejuice 2 ' Tim Burton keeps his promise to bring the Maitland family back, no less than 25 years later. Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder and Catherine O'Hara repeat alongside Jenna Ortega and Willem Dafoe.

Featured Film Titles in 2024

Another 'gem' that returns from the distant past is 'Gladiator 2', also recovered by the director of the first from 2000, Ridley Scott, who signed Pedro Pascal to replace an irreplaceable Russell Crowe when he was 36 years old and in full health. physical.

Another of the sequels that arouses the most curiosity is 'Joker: Folie a Deux', which Todd Phillips himself takes on, and which once again features Joaquin Phoenix, accompanied by Lady Gaga in a story that becomes, nothing less, than a musical.

And as usual, there is something new in Tolkien's universe, this time with 'The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim' (Kenji Kamiyama), an animated prequel set 183 years before what happened in the trilogy.

'Deadpool 3' also arrives with the great incentive of recovering Hugh Jackman playing the mythical Wolverine from the 'X-men' saga, and Ana de Armas enters the John Wick universe with 'Ballerina'.

In 'Alien: Romulus', the Uruguayan Fede Álvarez recreates the universe of the original 'Alien' from 1979. And George Miller returns to the Mad Max universe with 'Furiosa', with Ana Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth.

A new one about Ghostbusters –'Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire'-, another about apes -'Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes'- and the umpteenth one about Godzilla, are other new installments of stories that will come from well-known stories.

In the films aimed at children, but enjoyed equally by adults, in addition to 'Inside Out', the new installments of 'Kung Fu Panda' and 'Despicable Me', which arrive at four, or 'Mufasa: The Lion King', a prequel to Disney's 2019 hit, shot in computer-generated images.

New stories of consecrated names

Although many big names in cinema released in 2023, the new year will feature original titles with notable filmmakers behind them beyond the sequels, prequels, or remakes.

This is the case of 'Challengers', the film by Luca Guadagnino that should have opened the Venice Film Festival and whose premiere was postponed due to the strikes. Zendaya, Josh O'Connor, and Mike Faist form a very attractive love triangle.

Richard Linklater arrives with 'Merrily We Roll Along', a musical comedy starring Paul Mescal, which is an adaptation of a 1934 musical work but will undoubtedly have the special touch of the Texan director.

The same thing will happen with the new 'Frankenstein', by Guillermo del Toro, which has surrounded itself with an outstanding cast: Mia Gith, Andrew Garfield, Oscar Isaac, and Christoph Waltz.

The 93-year-old veteran Clint Eastwood still has the energy to continue directing and will present 'Juror #2', by Clint Eastwood, a story about trials and murders.

A great cast for 'The Book of Clarence', with Benedict Cumberbach, James McAvoy, David Oyelowo and Omar Sy. And there is a lot of interest in the new Nog Joon Ho ('Parasites'), with a clone story starring Robert Pattinson.

Ishana Shyamalan's directorial debut, with 'The Watchers', John Krasinski's move to comedy with 'If', or The Life of Amy Winehouse told by Sam Taylor-Johnson, are other notable titles of 2024.
