The 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2022

Write the dates in your diary and don’t miss a single one… We may not know much about them yet, but we’ve rounded up the most exciting film releases of 2022 for you to stay in the know of the year’s (potentially) best productions.

Don’t Worry Darling 

Our Little Women favourite and A24 star Florence Pugh joins none other than Harry Styles in this American psychological thriller, directed by Olivia Wilde (Booksmart, Wake Up). Set to be released in September, the film’s teaser trailer gives us an eerie glimpse into the production. All that we do know is that Pugh discovers that her husband, Styles, has a dark secret…


If, like us, you are a Jordan Peele fanatic and have watched Get Out, Candyman, and Us several times, then the director’s next film, scheduled for release in July, is just for you. Daniel Kaluuya returns to centre-stage in the production that is sure to promise the same calibre of horror of his previous work, but with the pertinent underlying topics that lace his craft.

The Batman 

Finally, after what feels like years of production, Matt Reeve’s The Batman will be released in March. All we’ve seen are some sneaky shots of the film’s hero Robert Pattinson on set and a trailer that echoes a villain origin story merged with a killer-on-the-loose thriller. Oh, and Zoë Kravitz gearing up to steal the show. 

Legally Blonde 3 

Probably the most anticipated film of the year… But we’ll have to wait until May. Jamie Suk directs the next instalment of the globally revered franchise. The film’s heroine, Reese Witherspoon, confirmed the film back in 2018. With a script by Mindy Kaling, Witherspoon has previously said that the production will be ‘full of fashion and awesome feminist ideas’.

She Said

Maria Schrader’s film, due to be released in November, follows the story of The New York Times journalists who were responsible for exposing Harvey Weinstein’s history of abuse and sexual misconduct against women. Based on a book of the same name, the release later this year will shine a deserved light on the seismic work of Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey.


Baz Lurhmann’s biographical musical drama about the King of Rock and Roll is set to be released in June this year. The film explores the relationship between Elvis, played by Austin Butler, and his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, played by Tom Hanks.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

The highly anticipated sequel to one of the best Marvel films around is finally (almost) here. Due to be released in November this year, director Ryan Coogler’s production will continue to explore the world of Wakanda and the characters that we fell in love with back in 2018. Marvel boss Kevin Feige has previously said that the character played by the late Chadwick Boseman will not be replaced.


Catch Jared Leto looking particularly creepy in this Daniel Espinosa production, due to be released in January. The Marvel Spiderman spin-off follows the story of a biochemist (Leto) who tries to cure himself from a rare blood disease but, as you can probably guess, it goes horribly wrong…

Licorice Pizza

An early 2022 release, but definitely one that will be remembered throughout the year. Paul Thomas Anderson’s coming-of-age film, releasing in January, is graced by Haim’s Alana Haim and explores an absurd, yet so lovable, romance.

The Worst Person in the World

This Joachim Trier film, releasing in March, currently holds a Rotten Tomatoes score of 100%… need we say more? It’s a story of personal turmoil as a young woman navigates her life, love and career, and all the hardships they entail.
