From new sequels to beloved classics, these movies will surely leave audiences excited and talking about them for months afterward.
Here are the ten most anticipated movies of 2023.
There’s not so much we know about the next Christopher Nolan film, Oppenheimer. All we know is that it’s going to be an adaptation of a biography of atomic bomb inventor Robert Oppenheimer.
What makes this film so anticipated is that it will be Nolan’s first foray into non-linear storytelling, which is something he’s been wanting to do for a while. Additionally, the subject matter is ripe for an exploration of the ethics of creating such a weapon. With Nolan at the helm, this is sure to be one of the most talked-about movies of 2023.
Familiar names in Hollywood like Matt Damon, Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr., Kenneth Branagh, and more will be in the film. The film will be released on 23 July 2023.
tarring Timothee Chalamet, Wonka is a prequel to the 1971 classic Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The film will focus on a young Willy Wonka and how he met Oompa-Loompas and became the eccentric chocolate maker we all know and love.
With director Paul King at the helm, this is sure to be a treat for audiences of all ages. The film is scheduled to be released on 15 December 2023 by Warner Bros Pictures.
