    Embarking on a cinematic journey through the year ahead, 2024 unveils an array of films that promise to captivate audiences and leave an indelible mark on the silver screen. From grand sequels to intriguing adaptations and original creations, the upcoming year heralds a new era of storytelling and visual splendor. Here are the five movies that stand tall, poised to enrapture global audiences and redefine the cinematic landscape in 2024.

    1. Joker Folie a Deux

    Joker 2 appears to be a highly anticipated sequel to the 2019 Joker film directed by Todd Phillips. The first film was a compelling origin story that delved into the psyche of the iconic character, offering audiences a fresh and gritty take on the Joker's narrative. It seems this sequel will continue exploring the complex and enigmatic nature of the character, giving fans another opportunity to engage with the Joker they've come to both love and loathe.

    Fans have shown immense patience and dedication, having already waited for more than three years for news of the sequel. This extended period has likely fueled the anticipation and speculation about what direction the story will take and how the character will evolve.

    Given the success and impact of the first film, it's no surprise that expectations are sky-high for "Joker Folie a Deux." The audience's anticipation reflects the deep connection they've formed with the Joker's character, eager to witness his further development and the continuation of the story Phillips began in 2019. 

    Another crucial nugget about the movie, likely to sway the plot, is its unique musicality. The decision reportedly stems from the thematic dance elements in the first film, amplified by Lady Gaga’s casting as the iconic Harley Quinn. Gaga’s musical prowess undoubtedly influenced the film's direction, her dual expertise in acting and music making it an obvious choice.

    It’s vital for fans to grasp that this movie, much like its precursor, exists outside James Gunn’s upcoming DC Universe. Instead, it falls into the realm of DC Elseworlds—a standalone project within the DC Universe. While not groundbreaking (given the original Joker’s detachment from DC’s larger cinematic universe attempts), it’s a noteworthy distinction to bear in mind.

    2. Deadpool 3


    Deadpool 3

    In September 2022, Reynolds made waves when he dropped the bombshell: Hugh Jackman was reprising his role as Wolverine for Deadpool 3, despite the character's demise in 2017’s Logan. The announcement video set fandoms ablaze, instantly solidifying the movie as a scorching hot property within the Marvel universe.

    Teaming up with Reynolds and Jackman are the esteemed talents of Emma Corrin, rumored to portray the formidable villain Cassandra Nova, and Matthew Macfadyen from Succession, adding a unique dynamic as a "third wheel" alongside Deadpool and Wolverine. Familiar faces from previous installments include Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Stefan Kapicic voicing Colossus, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Shioli Kutsuna as Yukio, and the return of Rob Delaney as the lovable Peter, the sole human member of X-Force.

    We still don’t know the plot details about Deadpool 3. The film is meant to be the character’s introduction to the MCU, with writer Rhett Reese describing it as a “fish-out-of-water” situation where they’re dropping “a lunatic into a very sane world.” Fans have long wondered how Reynolds’ wisecracking, vulgar, fourth-wall-breaking mercenary would fit into the MCU, and by the looks of it, Deadpool 3 will have a ball with the possibilities.

    Based on leaked photos and cast confirmations, it is safe to assume Deadpool 3 will be a multiverse story. By the looks of it, it seems as though it will effectively work as the closing chapter of the Fox-Marvel universe, allowing the previous iteration of the X-Men one last moment in the spotlight. In early November 2023, Reynolds confirmed that the character Dogpool would appear in the film, solidifying the multiverse theory.

    As previously mentioned, the main theory is that Corrin’s villain will be Cassandra Nova, a parasitic life form tied to X-Men leader Charles Xavier. Nova is infamous for being one of the team’s most powerful enemies, making her an ideal antagonist for Deadpool’s third movie.

    Prepare for a whirlwind of chaos and comedy as Deadpool ventures into uncharted territory! Deadpool 3, the character's grand entrance into the MCU, promises a wild 'fish-out-of-water' experience, dropping a certifiable lunatic into a world of order and sanity. Ryan Reynolds returns to reprise his role, teasing fans with the sheer potential for mayhem.

    Leaked photos and confirmed cast details strongly suggest a dive into the multiverse, heralding the culmination of the Fox-Marvel universe. It's a curtain call for the X-Men of old, granting them one last spotlight moment. And in a tantalizing reveal, Reynolds confirmed Dogpool's appearance, cementing the multiverse storyline.

    The buzz around the main villain centers on Cassandra Nova, a formidable parasitic entity entwined with the X-Men's Charles Xavier. Nova's reputation precedes her as one of the team's most formidable foes, promising an electrifying clash in Deadpool's third cinematic outing.


    4. Furiosa


    Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga will delve deep into the origins of the pivotal character Imperator Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron in the 2015 film. Her first appearance in Fury Road occurs during Immortan Joe's speech, where her role as the logistics handler for Joe's citadel, especially in oil transportation from Gas Town to the Citadel, is unveiled. Initially serving as Immortan Joe's war captain, Furiosa's character undergoes a compelling transformation as she rebels against him to save The Five Wives.

    Critically acclaimed worldwide, Furiosa stands as a symbol of a strong female action hero, injecting feminist ideals into the franchise. The upcoming standalone spin-off promises to uncover more about this dynamic character, offering fans an immersive exploration of Furiosa's story.

    5. Dune 2

    It’s no secret that Dune emerged as a beloved gem in the cinematic landscape of 2021. Helmed by the visionary Denis Villeneuve and adorned with a stellar cast, this adaptation of Frank Herbert’s revered sci-fi epic enthralled audiences. Now, the sequel, Dune: Part Two, stands poised to elevate the saga further, already a beacon of anticipation for 2023. Here's your gateway to all things Dune: Part Two.

    In this sequel, Villeneuve steers the narrative toward the latter half of Herbert's Dune, spotlighting Paul's ascent among the Fremen and his defiance against Emperor Shaddam IV. The journey to becoming the legendary "Kwisatz Haderach" will test Paul's mettle, risking everything he holds dear. Amidst this, the Atreides lineage blossoms: Paul and Chani’s romance blooms as foreseen in Paul's visions, while Lady Jessica gives birth to Alia, endowed with remarkable Bene Gesserit gifts. Without unveiling all the intricacies, the novel’s framework promises a gripping, more plot-driven odyssey.

    Villeneuve tantalizingly teases, “It’s another mesmerizing desert odyssey. Paul and Lady Jessica delve into Fremen culture, forging alliances and confronting adversaries. It's Paul's clash against formidable foes—a movie poised to exude cinematic grandeur.”

    On the red carpet for Bones And All, Chalamet reflected on revisiting past works, specifically Dune: Part One, amidst crafting its sequel. "It’s intriguing—a rare opportunity in the film world: revisiting," the actor mused. "And with Dune, it resonates deeply. It mirrors life’s cycles. As Paul Atreides matures, so do I." A harbinger of a poised and resolute Paul Atreides emerges. It's no revelation—his pivotal act at the end of Part One marked the passage from youth to adulthood. Part Two will demand more from Paul as a warrior, a leader, tapping into his prescient abilities, prompting both character and actor to evolve.

    So there you have it, our top 5 anticipated flicks for the year 2024.
