The Most Anticipated Movies of 2022 and When They Premiere

The past two years have been far from normal, with everything from public transit systems to restaurants having been temporarily shut down in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

As the world gradually begins getting back to normal (with restaurants, theater venues, concert halls, and other businesses that thrive off of in-person attendance all opening again), it looks as though many of the movies audiences have been waiting for will finally be released this coming year. 

Here are some of the more highly anticipated movies to watch out for in 2022, ranging from mind-bending superhero movies exploring parallel universes to historical Western mysteries set in the Midwest. 

The Batman

Easily the most widely anticipated movie of the year, The Batman will likely be the “biggest” movie of at least the first half of 2022. 

Scheduled for release in theaters on March 4 

Avatar 2

Knowing Cameron and his crew literally created new technology for the sake of this movie is one key reason to be excited for it.  

Scheduled for release in theaters on December 16 

Killers of the Flower Moon

Based on the best-selling nonfiction book of the same name by David Grann, Killers of the Flower Moon explores the multiple murder of Osage tribe members in 1920s Oklahoma that may be related to a nearby oil deposit. 

Release date yet to be announced
