Incredibly, 2019 treated audiences to both Tarantino and Scorsese movies. But as we look ahead to Hollywood, there’s a lot to be excited about in 2020.
George Clooney, Jessica Chastain, Aaron Sorkin, Sofia Coppolla, Bill Murray, David Fincher, Gary Oldman, Wes Anderson and hundreds more!
Below we run down a sneak peek of the most anticipated movies of next year
Good Morning, Midnight
George Clooney directs and stars in this Netflix pic about a scientist, alone in the Arctic, who tries to make contact with a spacecraft returning to Earth. Also along for the ride are Felicity Jones, David Oyelowo, Kyle Chandler and Demian Bichir. Production began in late fall and we hear there’s a decent chance it could be ready for 2020. Gravity and First Man both lifted off at Venice.
The Trial Of The Chicago 7
Aaron Sorkin’s anticipated second directorial effort charts the infamous story of seven people on trial for various charges surrounding the uprising at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The starry ensemble includes Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen, Michael Keaton, Mark Rylance and Jeremy Strong. Paramount has set a late September 2020 launch.
David Fincher’s anticipated drama-biopic follows legendary screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz’s tumultuous development of Orson Welles’ iconic 1941 movie Citizen Kane. The Netflix pic stars Gary Oldman in the title role with Lily Collins, Amanda Seyfried and Charles Dance, and Tom Burke as Welles.
The Eyes Of Tammy Faye
Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield star in the biopic of televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, who seek redemption after their religious empire and marriage crumbles. Michael Showalter (The Big Sick) directs the Fox Searchlight charge.
On The Rocks
Sofia Coppola returns with the story of a young mother who reconnects with her larger-than-life playboy father on an adventure through New York. Bill Murray and Rashida Jones star in the A24 charge, which will likely have festivals drooling.
