We didn’t get much of a summer movie season in 2020, for coronavirus reasons, so a lot of the year’s biggest titles got shifted to 2021. While this impacted previously set plans for other 2021 films — which then got pushed even further back as well — we now have a wealth of the most buzzworthy movies hitting theaters and, in some cases, streaming at the same time. We’re finally getting F9, Black Widow, and Candyman. We have horror sequels (Spiral, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It), exciting animated films (Vivo, Luca), fun family fare (Jungle Cruise, Space Jam: A New Legacy), action comedies (Free Guy, The Suicide Squad), and even a couple of very different origin stories (Cruella, Snake Eyes). There’s a little something for everyone, and we’re all probably dying to get back to the theater sometime this year, so begin your planning… now!
