The end of the year is here, which means a whole new slate of movies is about to start. We begin looking forward to the big blockbusters that will start hitting the big screen. The new year always starts off with such promise of what we can expect. Every new year has the opportunity to turn cinema on its head and deliver a variety of tastes. While superheroes have ruled the box office for the last decade, other films like Everything Everywhere All At Once, Barbarian, and The Northman grabbed the audience’s attention. Let’s hope we get similar things this year.
