Eli’s film selection for 2022: Superheroes, sequels, animation – and lots of Brad Pitt

This year promises to bring more of what Hollywood excels at – superheroes and sequels, sequels, sequels. But scan a little further and you will find original offers from some of the best in the industry and a few completely outstanding concepts that we will have to see for ourselves.

Here are 22 movies worth watching in 2022.


“Come on, revenge. Let’s get some trouble.” The new Batman is a vibe. From the director of Cloverfield and planet of the Apes, the latest reinvention focuses on a young Bruce Wayne who wants to define himself. Robert Pattinson and his black eye shadow are the main attraction, but do not lower Zoë Kravitz as the cat burglar who always lands on his feet.

Turns red

The first director Domee Shi won an Oscar with her adorable short film Bag. Now she’s doubling her Sino-Canadian background with a story from Toronto about a young girl throwing herself into a giant red panda. With voice work by Sandra Oh and Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Turns red looks like a bang.

Premiere at Disney + March 11

The lost city

In what seems like a modern update of To romanticize the stone, Sandra Bullock stars in this jungle adventure about an unhappy writer and her Fabio-like cover model played by Channing Tatum. The couple also encounters a harsh Brad Pitt while trying to find a hidden city. It’s been a while since a major studio launched a rom-com with so much star power. But after roles in Bird box and The unforgivable, this takes Bullock back to doing what she’s best at.

All at once

Imagine Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but make it the Michelle Yeoh verse and you get a sense of what to expect lately from directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. The couple was in charge of the off-the-wall friends movie Swiss army man. All at once the madness continues with what looks like a manic Kung-Fu adventure where Yeoh plays an immigrant who holds the key to saving the universe. Bonus points for the inclusion of Jamie Lee Curtis, who looks like she came straight from the latest Halloween successor.

Learn to swim

Described as one hallucinatory blurring of experiences, the debut film from Toronto’s Thyrone Tommy immerses us in the jazz scene with Thomas Antony Olajide as the saxophonist haunted by a failed romance. Learn to swim made a big splash at TIFF and looks set to wrap up his tune around the audience this spring.

In the cinema March 2022

The unbearable weight of massive talent

In a movie that is so meta that you would assume Charlie Kaufman wrote it, Nicolas Cage stars as Nicolas Cage in this comedy, where the movie star agrees to meet a superfan played by Pedro Pascal. The script created waves on the blacklist (a place for film and TV writers to share their work with people in the industry) years ago, and if there is one actor who will commit to the concept, it is Cage.

In the cinema on April 22

The Bob’s Burgers movie

While animated shows that have turned into movies do not have a good track record (to watch you Simpsons), I am willing to give Bob’s burgers a shot just for 90 minutes where Gene jammed out on his keyboard. The film finds Belchers dealing with a growing sinkhole and possibly an alien intrusion.

Slash / Back

After the success of Blood quantum and Night Raiders, the native sci-fi revolution continues Slash / Back, a horror film about an alien encounter where a group of Inuit teenagers fight back. Filmed in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, I can not wait to see what Canadian filmmaker Nyla Innuksuk has created.

In the cinema June 2022


If anyone can catch Elvis Presley’s pelvic pumping, outrageous excesses, it’s director Baz Luhrmann, the man responsible for red Mill and personal favorite Strictly ballroom. Come after Tom Hanks with yet another ridiculous accent as Colonel Tom Parker, and stay for the remarkable Kelvin Harrison Jr. as BB King.

In the cinema on June 24

Thor: Love and Thunder

While I worry, Marvel-Verse may have lost its mojo after Avengers: Endgame, Thor: Love and Thunder could be the lightning it needs. Taika Waititi returns to instruct a story that brings Natalie Portman back and perhaps a version of Mrs. Thor of Marvel Comics. With 80s hair metal aesthetics and Russell Crowe as Zeus, Love and Thunder really looks to be a wonderful odyssey.

In the cinema July 8


There is not much to say Nix other than Jordan Peele, the director of Go out and U.S, has a way of revealing modern fears and inequalities like no other. Nix stars Daniel Kaluuya and Steven Yeun and Keke Palmer. Looks ominous. Get ready.

In the cinema July 22

Ball train

Who needs Murder of the Orient Express when you have Ball train, a film about a group of fast-moving assassins starring Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Zazie Beetz, Michael Shannon, Brian Tyree Henry and Bad Bunny. Everyone on board!

In theaters July 15


If you know Billy Eichner best from Billy on the street, get ready for another page with Bros, a rom-com that was announced as the first major studio film with a completely queer lead role playing heterosexual roles. With producer Judd Apatow on board, Bros could be the comic summer smash we need.

In the cinema on 12 August

Just calm down darling

In 2019, Olivia Wilde went from actress to director with Bogsmart, a navy-footed look at growing up as a modern teenager. Her follow-up film moves the plot to the 1950s and shows Harry Styles himself and the white widow, Florence Pugh, as husband and wife in a utopian society that begins to crack.

Mission: Impossible 7

Although I do not feel an urgent need to see Tom Cruise crawl back into the cockpit too Top Gun: Maverick, there is something about Impossible mission franchise that makes me come back for more. Maybe it’s Cruise’s desire to constantly top himself with extreme stunts or the crooked dialogue from Simon Pegg as Benji. Either way, the chaos returns in the fall.

In the cinema 30. sept

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part 1)

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse from 2018 was not only one of the best Spider-Man movies; it was one of the best superhero movies ever. Although the concept of parallel worlds does not seem so fresh (Damn you, Doctor Strange), I’m looking forward to seeing which Spider-People join Miles Morales. (Come on Supaidaman!)

In the cinema 7 Oct.


Even in Zack Snyder’s grim and gnawing Justice League, Ezra Miller’s bid for speedster the Flash was a breath of fresh air. Imagine what he can do with an entire movie. With both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton somehow acting as Batmen, you can expect more multiverse quarrels.

In the cinema 4 Nov.

Kenneth Branagh’s Bee Gees biography

In today’s high concept Hollywood, if a movie is not a sequel or a remake, it might as well be a biopic. The success of Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocket man demonstrated appetite for films about musicians, and the jive-talking men of the Bee Gees seem tailored to director Kenneth Branagh. From Cinderella to Belfast, the once Shakespeare actor is one of the busiest filmmakers in the industry. We hope the Gibb brothers and Branagh make beautiful music together.

In the cinema 4 Nov.


From Damien Chazelle, Director of La La Land, Babylon promises yet another sumptuous look at the film’s biz. This time it takes place during the difficult transition from silent film to talkies. No Ryan Gosling, but Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt will bring the glamor. Oscar attention is guaranteed.

In the cinema 25 Dec.

Women talk

Sarah Polley, Director of Take this roller and Away from her, took a break from film production for a few years. Now she is back with what promises to be a strong story about a religious community that confronts a number of sexual assaults. With the talents of Frances McDormand, Rooney Mara, Sheila McCarthy and Ben Whishaw, Women talk looks like a welcome return to form.

Expected 2022

The knives out 2

Daniel Craig and the finger-licking accent? Where do we sign up? Benoit Blanc’s continued adventures feature a new murder mystery and an ace-cast, including the witch Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr. and Janelle Monáe. But do not go looking for this in the cinemas – the sequels were snatched up by Netflix.

Expected 2022
