2020 is gonna be full of fantastic series and movies but there are some special ones I’m super excited about. Here are my top 10 promising 2020 releases.
Ratched is an upcoming series based on One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey. The reason why I’m super excited about this show to star on Netflix is not only the epic story but the production of one and only Ryan Murphy. Murphy is the creator of shows like an American horror story or American crime story and I just really enjoy his style. Speaking of the shows the main role of nurse Ratched is gonna be played by Sarah Paulson.
Ratched is a head nurse at a mental health institution abusing her power in inhuman ways. Look forward to this show in September 2020.
To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You
This Valentine’s day we can look forward to a comeback of iconic To all the boys I loved before. The cutest rom-com starring Noah Centineo and Lana Condor comes back with a second movie. I’m not a very romantic soul but oh boy how adorable was that movie.
Lara Jean is in a relationship with Peter when another one of her old crushes, another recipient of her letters comes back to her life. Suddenly, we’re at a typical love triangle dilemma. The girl loves 2 boys at once. Which one does she choose? Story old as time.
February 12 we’ll know the answer.
April 2020 is the time we’ll finally get a Black widow movie. I longed for this movie since the day I saw my first marvel movie starring Scarlett Johansson- Iron man. 10 years of waiting. Let’s hope it pays off.
Marvel movies are so overplayed recently so I don’t have high hopes for this one. I just owe it to my over-excited teenage self totally devoured by the first female superhero she saw.
Thankfully the movie is directed by female director Cate Shortland so at least there is a hope of not having Natasha Romanow overly sexualized. Please.
Wonder Woman 1984
Following another superhero movie directed by a female director, we have a second Wonder Woman movie to look forward to. This June we’ll see Gal Godot as Diana once again engaging in her many adventures.
Dianas’ love interest Steve Trevor from the first movie who DIED, is somehow back for the second movie. At least we’ll have more of Chris Pine in 2020.
Mulan and Powerpuff girls are the only 2 things I watched when I was a kid. I’m super excited that at least one of them is getting a remake in 2020.
The super empowering story, the embodiment of girl power, will come back on screen this march.
Mulan, the eldest of the honored warrior daughters, disguises herself as her father and serves in the army. She overcomes many obstacles and proves to everyone what she’s worth. I’m getting emotional.
Check out the beautiful trailer HERE.
It’s another 2020 movie directed by a woman. Let’s hope that the next Oscars will have at least one female director among their nominees’ cuz this shit is getting ridiculous.
Birds of Prey
I think you can see the pattern by now. 2020 is gonna be a year of many powerful women movies directed by powerful women.
Birds of prey tell the story of Harley Quinn after she broke up with Joker and finally left their toxic, abusive relationship.
Harley comes together with a group of girlfriends on her way to find herself, kick-ass, and protect a girl.
It was Margot Robbie herself who pitched the idea for Birds of prey to Warner Bros and that’s the perfect example of an actor understanding their character on a primal level.
People already started to notice major differences between the Suicide Squad, an epic fail of a movie, and Birds of prey in a way of portraying the character of Harley Quinn.
Suicides squad Harley is exactly what you would expect from a man. Dog collar. Sexual innuendos. Camera centering her boobs rather than her face. Her boobs were much bigger in SS than in Birds of prey. Her clothes in the BOP are no longer ripped all over and they are more fun just as her hairstyle is no longer ideal for “pulling”.
This tweet sums it up:
I’m just so happy that the character as perfect as Harley Quinn finally got what she deserved and I can’t wait to see it this February.
For me, Birds of prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) it’s the movie of the year.
Space force is Netflix’s promising comedy series created by and starring Steve Carell, better known as The office’s Michael Scott. This series will follow the workplace of a group of people tasked with establishing the sixth branch of the United States armed services, Space Force. No one knows what to do or what to expect so the window for comedy is wide open.
I miss The Office and I hope that Space force is gonna live up to my high expectations.
Brooklyn nine-nine season 7
Brooklyn 99 is coming back with the seventh season in 2020. Everyone loves Brooklyn nine-nine and if not, it only means they haven’t watched it yet.
It’s a perfect unproblematic comedy show staring some incredible names and there is never enough of Brooklyn 99.
New fantasy series so we have something to watch until the second season of The Witcher comes out in 2021. It’s gonna be a story of King’s Arthurs’s famous quest of finding Merilins sword and his many journeys along the way.
Everyone is so excited for Katherine Langford, popular for her role in 13 reasons why, to play the main role in the upcoming series. Me not so much, since I have not seen 13 reasons why yet.
I’m personally super excited for Daniel Sharman staring in this new Netflix original series. I just feel like he is perfect for medieval fantasy shows.
The release date is yet to be announced.
Bad Boys for Life
This 2020 release is already out there and it takes me back to the days where most of the movies I watched stared Will Smith or Martin Lawrence. Good old days.
Bad Boys for Life is a sequel to the first Bad Boys movie from 25 years ago and the second Bad Boys 2 movie from 2003. It’s a typical action-comedy movie about detectives we all love and miss. It’s one of those nostalgic movies that make you remember the simpler times of your youth.
The rest of the year is looking very interesting releases vise, but these here are just the ones I’m the most excited for.
Saw Bad Boys for life on the weekend. Martin Lawrence makes it ok. Wouldn’t have been any good without him.
I’m also very excited for Wonder Woman, Black Widow, and Birds of Prey! So far, they all look great. It seems that 2020 will be a fantastic year for movie and tv releases. I’m holding out hope that Season 3 of Castlevania will release this year, too!
Really looking forward to Wonder Woman…and didnt know about Birds of Prey, so surely adding that to my list. And, great post from you! 2020 seems to be quite a year in terms of some amazing movies.
I’m looking forward to Black Widow for sure…
