It’s official: 2022 is the year of the sequel. Movie theaters have been dominated by franchise films for years, but the pandemic has crunched the past couple of years’ worth of blockbusters into one bonanza year at the box office. These are the latest dates for your calendar as we celebrate the big films (and hopefully a few smaller ones) hitting the big screen and streaming services in 2022 (and beyond).
Black Panther, The Flash, Thor, Aquaman, Doctor Strange and Batman are among the superhero sequels hitting the big screen again. There are new movies in the Jurassic Park, Fantastic Beasts, Knives Out, Enola Holmes, Madea and Avatar franchises. Luckily, original flicks include The Adam Project, Moonfall, Jordan Peel’s Nope and Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon.
But delays are still happening: Spider-Man spinoff Morbius was postponed just before it was supposed to come out, while Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible no. 7 and no. 8 have been pushed back multiple times.
It’s been tough to keep up with all the changes to the movie schedule during the pandemic, from the everything-gets-cancelled start through the delta variant and now the omicron surge, but we’ve got you covered on the latest US theatrical and streaming movie release dates for 2022. If these dates are still in flux, we’ll let you know about the latest changes as new dates are announced. And don’t forget to check out our guide to 2022’s TV shows.
