The Film Yap’s movies to look forward to in 2021

The Film Yap’s Christopher Lloyd runs down the list of films to look forward to in 2021.

Eternals — Marvel’s newest superhero group franchise launches with this take on a group of immortal super-beings who have shaped human history. Starring Angelina Jolie, and directed by up-and-coming director Chloé Zhao.

No Time to Die — James Bond is back, in what is purported to be Daniel Craig’s last run playing 007. Bond has left his majesty’s service, but finds that trouble is still following him in the shape of Rami Malek as the heavy.

Dune — People are still divided on the 1984 film version of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel — what, you don’t dig Sting in a blue metal bikini? — so here’s a new version to argue about starring Timothee Chalamet.

Black Widow — The MCU’s paucity of front-and-center female supes gets a little nudge in the right direction as Scarlett Johanssen’s Russian superspy gets her own solo flick as she deals with her shadowy past.

Top Gun: Maverick — Most young filmgoers don’t even remember the seminal 1986 jingoism-and-tight-Ts movie about a headstrong pilot. Tom Cruise returns as the now-seasoned commander with a new mission.

Killers of the Flower Moon — Martin Scorsese’s two pet actors, Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, team up in this Western crime drama about the 1920s murder of American Indians and subsequent FBI investigation.

The Matrix 4 — After the disaster of the third Matrix movie — in which Neo was killed off! — Keanu Reeves returns for another mind-bending sci-fi actioner.

Spider-Man Sequel (title TBA) — This is interesting: the third solo Spidey movie starring Tom Holland will reportedly also bring back previous Peter Parkers Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in a multiverse-jumping story.
