Finally, we have some movie release dates to look forward to. While the vast majority in the next few months are very much of the ‘at home’ variety, it’s nice to have some new releases to look forward to, isn’t it?

As we hurtle towards a slightly staggered awards season, there’s plenty to look forward to on screens big and small. There’s everything from a Sopranos prequel, Disney’s latest animated effort, to even a movie filmed in lockdown in the coming months.

Beyond that, the big boys come out to play: Bond, Dune, and Spidey are among 2021’s movie release date highlights – and are worth jotting down now, even if they get delayed further. Then, some blasts from the past: Ghostbusters, The Matrix, and Top Gun all have new entries. And don’t forget the Space Jam sequel, either. 2021 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for fans of the silver screen, no matter where you watch the latest releases
