Covid-19 has hit our movie industry in an unprecedented way. Most of the studios have postponed the releases or planning to release the movie on the OTT platform. While we are waiting for new movies, we have brought to you a list of Most Anticipated Movies of 2020.
Most Anticipated Movies of 2020:
No Time to Die
Daniel Craig‘s James Bond era is the saga of a man eternally in need of a break. Craig’s 007 has attempted to retire numerous times before, and his latest effort to leave the espionage world forever at the beginning of No Time to Die will inevitably also fail.
But how exactly did they pull him back in? New No Time to Die plot details reveals the reason that Bond is back for one more go-around (and the last one for Craig), and what it has to do with Chrisotph Waltz’s returning Spectre villain Blofeld.
No Time to Die is packed full of Bond villains, with Christoph Waltz’s SPECTRE chief Ernst Stavro Blofeld set to return after his appearance in Spectre. After his life was spared by Bond in the last installment, Blofeld has been languishing in Belmarsh Prison.
But the baddie is up to something, Broccoli says, who confirms that “he’s actually communicating to the SPECTRE agents” from within the prison.
The film also features the return of Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Rory Kinnear, reprising roles from previous films in the franchise, along with newcomers Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, David Dencik, Dali Benssalah, and Billy Magnussen.

The Way Back
The Way Back is too good of a movie to be looked at only as the first-mile marker on Ben Affleck’s comeback journey. But there’s no pretending its fictional dramas aren’t fully entwined with the real ones of its lead actor, either.
The film’s main character, Jack Cunningham, is a high school basketball coach who, like Affleck, is an alcoholic, and who, like Affleck, is coming out of a marriage to a woman who still cares about him but who can’t bear to be with him anymore.
The movie has served as a way for Affleck, who came directly from rehab to set, to talk about his personal struggles on a press tour that’s brought a combination of vulnerability and publicist-negotiated strategy.
Unlike the actor, Jack is not a public figure, though he had a brush with a local sort of fame when he was a basketball star at the school that hired him back to help their floundering team before he started self-immolating in a misguided attempt to hurt his father by hurting himself.

Dune is a science fiction novel written by Frank Herbert and published in 1965. A joint winner of the 1966 Hugo Award and the winner of the first Nebula Award for Best Novel, Dune is popularly considered one of the greatest science fiction novels of all time, is frequently cited as the best-selling science fiction novel in history and was the first best-selling hardcover science fiction novel ever.
Dune is set far in the future amidst a sprawling feudal interstellar empire where planetary fiefdoms are controlled by noble Houses that owe allegiance to the Imperial House of Corrino.
The novel tells the story of young Paul Atreides (heir apparent to Duke Leto Atreides and scion of House Atreides) as he and his family relocate to the desert planet Arrakis, the only source of the spice melange, the most important and valuable substance in the universe.
In a story that explores the complex and multilayered interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion, the fate of Paul, his family, his new planet and its native inhabitants, as well as the Padishah Emperor, the powerful Spacing Guild, and the secretive female order of the Bene Gesserit are all drawn together into a confrontation that will change the course of humanity.

Wonder Woman 1984
Wonder Woman 1984 is, indeed, set in 1984. That’s a huge leap from the original film to the sequel: The first Wonder Woman movie took place during World War I. And Wonder Woman hasn’t aged at all.
We found out at the end of the first film that Diana is the daughter of the god Zeus, which means she’s immortal—or something close to it, at least.
Though we see her age from little girl to young woman in this movie, she appears not to have aged between the 1910s and the events of Batman v. Superman, which took place in 2016.
So now we find ourselves in the 1980s, with a Diana that looks exactly the same as she did in 1910 and well into the 2010s.

Like all Christopher Nolan movies, “Tenet” is filming with its storyline under lock and key. Warner Bros. has yet to reveal any specifics about Nolan’s script, which has led to endless fan speculation about what the writer-director has in store for his new movie.
The project surfaced with a rumor calling it a “massive, innovative, action blockbuster which will again be shown in Imax,” hardly a shocking revelation considering those details apply to all of Nolan’s recent releases.
When Warner Bros announced the official title of the movie in May, it confirmed “Tenet” is “set in the world of international espionage.” After that, many Nolan fans have since been referring to the film as Nolan’s Bond movie.
The filmmaker has long been an outspoken champion of the Bond franchise and has expressed interest in directing a 007 film.
Tentative Release Date: 17 July 2020
