2022 has arrived, and, with it, a whole bunch of movie release dates to get excited about. In January alone, you can catch female-led spy movie The 355, horror sequel Scream, and Guillermo del Toro's Nightmare Alley, and that's before we get onto the rest of the year. 

As 2022 continues, we can feast our eyes on everything from Marvel multiversal adventures to Robert Pattinson's take on the Caped Crusader – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, and The Batman are all coming our way, along with rom-coms, slashers, animated movies, and a dinosaur extravaganza in the form of Jurassic World 3: Dominion

There's no chance of things running out of steam as the year ends, either – the last few months of 2022 hold Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part 1, Avatar 2, and more. And that's just the start of it, so keep reading to discover our complete guide to all the movie release dates in 2022.

Need more to get excited about? Well then, be sure to keep up to date with all the new Marvel TV shows coming to Disney Plus.

I'm the Entertainment Writer here at GamesRadar+, focusing on news, features, and interviews with some of the biggest names in film and TV. On-site, you'll find me marveling at Marvel and providing analysis and room temperature takes on the newest films, Star Wars and, of course, anime. Outside of GR, I love getting lost in a good 100-hour JRPG, Warzone, and kicking back on the (virtual) field with Football Manager. My work has also been featured in OPM, FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution.
