Not as good as expected, Lanthimos' previous movies were more original (here he was after all just a director for hire).
Nina Paley's follow-up to the awesome "Sita Sings the Blues", fully available online but I haven't seen it yet:
I like atmsospheric SF thrillers, I missed this one at cinemas.
Alita: Battle Angel
Rodriguez/Cameron, so it should have been good, but the buzz was not great. Didn't motivate me enough to see it at the cinema.
I saw it and it was really great. People will be watching it again and again, looking for possible meanings like with Kubrick's The Shining!
The Wandering Earth
I saw it because a) I read the writer's other books, the Three-Body Problem trilogy, and they were beyond awesome; b) it's the first big Chinese SF blockbuster so I'm curious. It was awful. Nice try though, technically, maybe the Chinese industry will produce something better in the future.
I won't learn anything new, but I'm interested in this biopic.
Toy Story 4
I found that 3 ended nicely so I don't know if a 4th was necessary. Let's see.
Danny Boyle and the Beatles. Sounds good!
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Mientras dure la guerra
Amenabar on the Spanish civil war, should be very interesting!
Terminator 6: Dark Fate
Just because T2 names are attached to it, but prepared to be disappointed. Other T2 sequels were mostly awful, this one explicitly says it ignores them.
Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker
I'm afraid JJ will botch this, but there's potential.
Another atmospheric SF story, this one by James Gray (Lost City of Z), promises to be more realistic SF than your average film.
Adults in the Room
Costa-Gavras' film on the EU/Eurozone crisis, very much looking forward to what he has to say!
John Tuturro's sequel/spin-off of the Big Lebowski focusing on Jesus Quintana! Again, afraid I'll be disappointed but looking forward to be surprised.
Bong Joon-Ho does another film mixing of SF and social themes (The Host, Snowpiercer, Okja)! Plus he just won the Palme d'Or.
