We have collected the most anticipated novelties of 2024: films by famous directors, sequels to popular franchises, and even a couple of non-obvious “dark horses” that should definitely not be lost from sight against the background of more famous names.
The Fall Guy
Genre: Action, Thriller, Drama
Director: David Leitch
Actors: Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Hannah Waddingham
Premiere date: February 29, 2024
The first expected novelty will be released in February.
The main character of the film is a professional stuntman played by Ryan Gosling, who has grown a lot since the days of “Barbie” and works part-time as a hired killer in his spare time. On the set of the next film with his participation, a scandal arises: the famous actor disappears. The star’s stunt double takes on his investigation.
The crime thriller would hardly have made it to our top of the most anticipated films of 2024 if it weren’t for David Leitch’s participation in the project. Hardly anyone in modern Hollywood understands the stunt business better than the director of John Wick, Explosive Blonde, and Deadpool 2. Moreover, Leitch not only stood behind the camera in these films but also often replaced the actors in the frame during the most dangerous scenes. So you can safely expect dynamic action, dizzying stunts, and cool special effects from the novelty.

Dune: Part Two
Genre: Sci-Fi, Action, Drama, Adventure
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Actors: Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Florence Pugh, Javier Bardem
Premiere date: March 13, 2024
One of the most anticipated sci-fi action movies of 2024 is, without a doubt, the sequel to the Oscar-winning Dune. The first part of the dulogy has already proved that Denis Villeneuve has brilliantly mastered the literary source, recreating in detail the legendary world of Frank Herbert on the screen.
The only thing left to do is to maintain the signature style and bring an epic story about political disputes in a galaxy far, far away, to a worthy conclusion.

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire
Genre: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comedy, Adventure
Director: Gil Keenan
Actors: Carrie, Mckenna Grace, Paul Rudd, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray
Premiere date: March 27, 2024
Studying the premieres of 2024, it is impossible to ignore the series of adventures of the team of fighters against the “paranormal.” Like the previous parts, this film promises to be a great fantasy entertainment with a touch of horror for the whole family. Moreover, the squad of “Hunters” has noticeably rejuvenated – their children continue the work of the heroes of the 80s. However, not all veterans of ghost fights are ready to hand over the proton pack to the next generation: Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray will definitely return from the older men. The action of the film moves back to New York: a powerful monster will appear in the city, threatening to arrange a new ice age on Earth.
Genre: Action, Drama
Director: Alex Garland
Actors: Jesse Plemons, Nick Offerman, Kirsten Dunst, Kaley Spain
Premiere date: April 26, 2024
“Civil War” is a new work by Alex Garland. This time, the director decided to move away from his favorite genre of science fiction in favor of a tough dystopian action movie.
The plot of the film unfolds in the United States, where internal political conflicts bring society to an open, bloody confrontation against the backdrop of a large-scale war for power.
Critics describe the film as “provocative, scandalous and frank.” Special attention should be paid to the acting duo of Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst, who brilliantly showed themselves in the series Fargo.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga
Genre: Sci-Fi, Action, Thriller, Adventure
Director: George Miller
Actors: Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Burke, Nathan Jones
Premiere date: May 22, 2024
Going through the films that will be released in 2024, it is impossible to ignore the long-awaited spin-off of the box office hit Mad Max: Fury Road, dedicated to the most charismatic heroine of the film – the fearless warrior Furiosa.
Judging by the first trailer and the rejuvenation of the cast, we are waiting for a prequel to the franchise, which will tell about the early years of the road Valkyrie. According to rumors, the script was not written from scratch but was based on a series of comics in which Furiosa is kidnapped from a matriarchal post-apocalyptic society.
The title role has passed from Charlize Theron to Anya Taylor-Joy, and Chris Hemsworth will probably have to make up for the absent Max (Tom Hardy). At the helm of the filming is the permanent director of the franchise, George Miller, who, even at the age of eight, has not lost his former enthusiasm.

Genre: Sci-Fi, Action, Comedy
Director: Shawn Levy
Actors: Ryan Reynolds, Emma Corrin, Jennifer Garner, Hugh Jackman
Premiere date: July 26, 2024
At this point, someone is likely to react like, “What! Another Marvel comic book movie? When even the most ardent fans of superheroes got tired of them?” But don’t rush to conclusions; this is a special case. The threequel about the adventures of the immortal stooge Deadpool has been in development for at least five years, so it is unlikely that the audience will be waiting for an assembly line. The authors firmly decided to follow the crazy spirit of the franchise, setting the age limit “18+” for the sake of limitless frenzy. In the director’s chair is the master of adventure comedies, Shawn Levy, and under the mask of the hero is the same Ryan Reynolds, who was given the seemingly retired Wolverine played by Hugh Jackman. In the era of total stagnation of the genre, it seems that the shameless witticism Deadpool is almost the only one who is able to make a noise in this superhero swamp.

Genre: Horror, Science Fiction
Director: Federico Alvarez
Actors: Isabella Merced, Kaylee Spain, Archie Reno, David Johnsson Fray
Premiere date: August 14, 2024
The creators of the film series about the confrontation of the human race with space monsters-xenomorphs rushed to all sorts of extremes, from religious parables to epic action films! But the last parts of the franchise clearly fell short of its legendary origins. “Romulus” is another attempt to restore “Alien” to its former glory. The plot unfolds between the first two films of the cycle, and the authors rely on realistic special effects as opposed to computer graphics, just like in the good old days.
The cast does not shine with stars, but the author of the reboot of Evil Dead and the hit horror Don’t Breathe, Federico Alvarez, directs the filming. It is said that the creator of the original Alien, Ridley Scott, has already seen the draft version of Romulus — and was delighted.

Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Comedy
Director: Tim Burton
Actors: Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Jenna Ortega, Monica Bellucci, Willem Dafoe
Premiere date: September 5, 2024
Tim Burton, Hollywood’s foremost master of telling dark tales, unexpectedly returns to the gothic story of the eccentric ghost of Beetlejuice, who terrifies the living and the dead. The details of the plot are still kept secret, but the sequel to the cult film of the 80s is already impressive with its cast. Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder will return to their roles, and the main character will get a wife (Monica Bellucci) and a daughter, who the young star of the series Wednesday Jenna Ortega will play. It’s scary to imagine what kind of buffoonery such a family of ghosts can arrange. Willem Dafoe, in the role of the “guardian of order from beyond the grave,” must somehow balance the degree of insanity. It will be possible to assess the chances of the story’s success in September.

Joker 2: Folie à Deux
Genre: Musical, Thriller, Drama, Crime
Director: Todd Phillips
Actors: Joaquin Phoenix, Lady Gaga, Zazie Beetz, Brendan Gleeson, Katherine Keener
Premiere date: October 2, 2024
The sequel to Joker is an extremely ambitious and equally risky project. Not only was the story of the formation of the most famous villain from the comics quite a finished work but also the continuation of the tough psychological thriller was turned into a musical, where the main character will be paired with Harley Quinn, played by Lady Gaga. Strangely? Mildly! But the film’s team, led by director Todd Phillips, is confident in their creative vision so much that the film managed to defend even against the backdrop of total transformations in the DC Cinematic Universe. In this case, we are clearly in for either something brilliant or an enchanting failure – the stakes are too high.

Premiere date: November 21, 2024
Let’s be honest: old Ridley Scott has not always been pleasing in recent years. And his “Napoleon” became one of the main disappointments of the outgoing year. But in the case of the second Gladiator, there is no doubt that the maestro will invest in the project from the heart – the idea of filming a continuation of the misadventures of the deposed commander Maximus has been nurtured for more than twenty years.
The authors themselves declare the genre of the film as “historical fiction.” The audience will find a truly large-scale peplum with an extremely realistic depiction of the era but with free assumptions in terms of the plot for the sake of a twisted plot.
The focus will be on the nephew of the Roman emperor Lucius, who is involved in a whirlpool of political and corrupt intrigues. Well, it will not do without gladiatorial fights.
