It probably won’t come as a surprise that many of upcoming movies are sequels, prequels, reboots, part of a larger connected film universe, or spin-offs of existing franchises. Let’s face it, movies like Avatar 2 and Fast & Furious 9 get big budgets for a reason — they make huge profits. It’s harder and harder for filmmakers to get funding for a truly original idea these days. Luckily there’s at least one of those included on this list of movies that we’re looking forward to watching, but only when they finally hit theaters next year!
From Denis Villeneuve’s star-studded Dune remake to Christopher Nolan’s super-secret action drama, here are 30 upcoming movies sure to blow us all away in 2020. Enjoy!
30. The Six Billion Dollar Man
The Six Billion Dollar Man was originally scheduled to release in 2016, but after director Peter Berg left the project, the film was put on hold until the rights were sold to Warner Bros. back in 2017. Few details have been released since the Warner took over, but we do know Mark Wahlberg will play the lead, Colonel Steve Austin, and Bumblebee and Kubo and the Two Strings’ Travis Knight and Ozark’s Bill DuBugue were hired as director and writer. As of right now, The Six Billion Dollar Man movie is expected to be released on June 5, 2020.
As many of you know, the film is based on the popular ’70s TV series The Six Million Dollar Man, about a former astronaut who after surviving a horrific crash, is rebuilt with bionic implants to become a secret agent of the Office of Scientific Intelligence (OSI), a fictional organization under the direction of Oscar Goldman.
