Don’t Miss Out On The Most Anticipated Movies Coming To Theaters Or Netflix In 2020
2020 is here, and that means it’s time to get hyped for a new wave of movies. We’re talking the standalone Black Widow film, West Side Story, and Mulan. And guess what, Bill and Ted are ready to take us all on another excellent adventure. Don’t worry, the recognizable characters, such as Nat, Tony and Maria, and Mulan, aren’t the only ones you’ll be seeing on the big screen.
Get ready for some Netflix originals and an Aretha Franklin biopic. But that’s enough spoilers, so sit back, relax, and mark your calendars for some upcoming release dates. Something tells us that you should buy an annual movie pass now.
Mulan Is Ready To Get Down To Business
Coming out of the Disney Renaissance-era, Mulan is the story of a girl who wants nothing more than to bring honor to her family. But at what cost? Disney went ahead and did something new to their “live-action Disney movie” streak. The plot leans more towards the actual legend instead of the fictionalized version ’90s kids fell in love with.
Unfortunately, this means no snarky Mushu or catchy show tunes. But that shouldn’t sway you from going to see the film in theaters. A new twist to a popular tale never hurt anyone! The live-action version of Mulan comes to the big screen on March 27, 2020.

Producer Barbara Broccoli and co. have assembled quite the team, including True Detective‘s Cary Joji Fukunaga.
The story is going to take place five years after the capture of Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Bond is retired, having left active service. In typical Bond fashion, his solitude doesn’t last long. Be sure to get your tickets for April 10 to see what happens!
