The Most Anticipated Sci Fi Movies Of 2020


2020 might feel far away, but Hollywood’s
major studios are already planning ahead with some legit super hits on the horizon. And if you’re a fan of sci-fi flicks, then
2020’s looking like an especially good year for you. These are just a few of the most anticipated
sci-fi blockbusters on their way to a big screen near you. Film fans will finally get the answer to an
age-old question in 2020, when Godzilla and King Kong face off on the big screen. Director Adam Wingard has already assured
fans that his take on the two monsters will crown a definitive winner, unlike the 1962
film that first pit the two characters against each other. This will be the fourth entry in Legendary’s
MonsterVerse, first established in 2014’s Godzilla and further explored in Kong: Skull
Island. “Kong is not the only king.” Godzilla: King of the Monsters opened up that
world even wider in 2019, bringing old favorites like Mothra and Rodan into the fray and setting
the stage for this clash of the titans. Godzilla vs. Kong is the biggest project yet
for Wingard, whose previous directing credits include You’re Next, The Guest, and Blair
Witch. As if the collision of these two screen icons
wasn’t fan-pleasing enough, the movie will also feature an impressive assembly of human
actors. Stranger Things’ Millie Bobbie Brown will
reprise her King of the Monsters role, with Black Panther’s Danai Gurira and Deadpool
2’s Julian Dennison also attached to star. It’s pretty hard to keep a movie production
secret, particularly in the age of comprehensive entertainment news sites. That’s why it was as startling as a freaky
ghost when filmmaker Jason Reitman revealed that not only was he working on a new Ghostbusters
movie, but that he already had a vague but atmospheric teaser trailer announcing its
summer 2020 arrival. The son of original Ghostbusters director
Ivan Reitman, Jason has formed his own identity as a director with such offbeat, low-key dramedies
such as Juno and Tully. Now, as he explained to Entertainment Weekly,
he’s ready to direct and co-write a new chapter of the story he watched unfold on set as a
child. And get this: It’s not a reboot! Reitman expressed
that much when he told Entertainment Weekly: “It is not a reboot. What happened in the ’80s happened in the
’80s, and this is set in the present day.” All that said, it remains to be seen which
original cast members will be involved Harold Ramis passed away in 2014, Rick Moranis is
in semi-retirement, and Bill Murray has long been slippery on committing to another sequel. But then, who knows what Bill Murray will
do at any given moment? “Wait wait wait wait wait. I’ve always wanted to do this. And…” Writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson has had
a career largely defined by video game adaptations. Over the past 25 years, he’s brought us Mortal
Kombat, DOA: Dead or Alive, and most significantly, the Resident Evil series. Now, he’s reuniting with his Resident Evil
star — and better half — Milla Jovovich to bring yet another game franchise to the
big screen: Capcom’s Monster Hunter. These fantasy role-playing games have been
amassing fans since the inaugural entry’s release in 2004, and there’s no end in sight
— the latest installment, Monster Hunter: World, was one of the best-selling video games
of 2018. With a supporting cast that includes Tony
Jaa and Ron Perlman, Anderson’s adaptation of the beloved franchise sees Jovovich starring
as the leader of a platoon of soldiers transported from our world to a savage fantasy land. Reviews for Anderson’s filmography as a whole
have been middling, to say the least. But he’s described Monster Hunter as a, quote,
“passion project,” and maybe that passion will make for a grand spectacle. We’ll find out when the hunt begins on September
4, 2020. Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel Dune has had a
towering influence over the world of science fiction, which is probably why filmmakers
have been trying to bring Herbert’s universe to the screen for decades. Avant-garde director Alejandro Jodorowsky’s
ambitious but abandoned attempt in the ’70s was so legendary it eventually became the
subject of a hit documentary. Surrealist director David Lynch helmed a blockbuster
version of Dune in 1984, but while the film has something of a cult following, many — including
Lynch himself — found it unsatisfying. A Syfy miniseries in 2000 served as a faithful
adaptation, but suffered from the limitations of a TV budget. Now, Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 director
Denis Villeneuve hopes to get it right. His strongest asset so far is an already stacked
cast, which includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård,
Oscar Isaac, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Jason Momoa. Another point in the production’s favor: the
film will reportedly focus on only the first half of Herbert’s novel, avoiding the overstuffed
confusion of the Lynch movie. News about Dune seems to be coming in fast
and furious, with a release date set for November 20, 2020. Stay tuned to find out who else joins its
already super impressive cast. We’re getting not one, not two, not even three,
but four Avatar sequels over the next decade, the first of which will hit theaters in 2020. The massive undertaking reportedly has a total
budget of over $1 billion, allowing director and franchise mastermind James Cameron to
fully embrace new technologies and make sure that the sequels are as visually stunning
as the first chapter. Cameron isn’t slouching on the story, either. The movies are said to be a family saga about
Sam Worthington’s Jake, Zoe Saldana’s Neytiri, and the pair’s children. Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Matt Gerald,
Joel David Moore, Giovanni Ribisi, and C.C.H. Pounder are among the returning cast, despite
the deaths of some of their characters in the original. Newcomers include Fear the Walking Dead’s
Cliff Curtis as Tonowari — the leader of a clan of reef people — and Game of Thrones’
Oona Chaplin as Varang, a prominent character described as being strong and vibrant. A group of young actors will take on mostly
CGI roles as the younger set of Pandora residents, bringing the film a new challenge — and
hopefully, some new life as well. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about your favorite

  1. Avatar 2 was delayed to a December 17, 2021 release date during the making of this video. We apologize for the oversight.

  2. Looper states Kong/Godzilla has a strong cast lined up….proceeds to mention three small-time underlings…lol….Now Dune however, that's an impressive cast.

  3. There is nothing on this list that fills me with anticipation. The only one I'd be slightly interested in is Dune but you couldn't make that book into a decent movie less than 6 hours long. As for Milla Jojovich, she is one of the most overhyped actors around. Count me out of this sorry lot

  4. However they end kong vs zilla it don't matter to me.. I know zilla would literally and absolutely destroy Kong. Period end of story.

  5. Would really love to see more Asimov based sci-fi on the big screen, even a series based on the Foundation books or his robot novels. Give us some TRUE sci-fi and forget all this phony fantasy schlock.

  6. I loved Lynch's Dune back in the day, though it did suffer a bit from slow pacing, and the SyFy miniseries (both of them) were extremely good given their budgets. What worries me about this new version is that, when the cast was being called out, I'd only heard of the last two

  7. Oh good more AVATAR. They brought this movie to our base overseas with the cast when it came out. Oh except for James "pussy" Cameron who only went to the carrier because he was afraid of being B.O.G. and there wasn't 5 star accommodations for his little faggy ass. Anyway the movie didn't get much love. It wasn't a new story. Anyway over the age of 12 has seen it before. And the blue elves just looked way to fake.

  8. Kong vs Godzilla ..with definitely winner? We all going to know Kong is going to win. Y? coz its hollywood shit. Still it would be awesome!

  9. What…?….no more Rosie o'donnel lookalikes in Ghost Buster remakes?…oh my non existent god….all the rest are "woke" and soon to go broke…dross.

  10. Wish they would come up with fresh stories…something like N.K. Jemison's Hugo & Nebula award winning 'Broken Earth Trilogy'… a powerfully imagined, and completely different story than anything anybody has ever thought of before. Take a chance Hollywood!!

  11. The 1st avatar was successful because of curiosity.. after the 1st 10 minutes of awe in regards to its CGI, it became preachy and tiresome..this 2nd will make money but far less then the original..being that it will prob have leftist agenda in global warming

  12. They’re waiting too long for avatar sequels. The hype train has moved on. Now next to no one cares about sequels

  13. Jodorowsky's vision of Dune has a profound on Science Fiction through his visions for Dune. Alien and David's Lynch's Dune have included some of Jodorowsky's visions of Dune. The Baron's Palace in D.L.'s Dune, and the Alien in the Alien movie are the two examples.

  14. Avatar is just GAY!!! It will always be runner up to Avengers Endgame. The new one won't make a difference help as the MCU has captivated the world's minds!!

  15. …is it possible to use unknown actors hollyweird? or is that not the thing to do anymore

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT -> most of the iconic stars in cinema history was unknowns! (fact)

  16. Looper movie trailers are grate and intrigue. This one makes me feel happy and interested in fight arts and fight scenes. Thank you.

  17. And as usual, we get the bit where everyone whines incessantly about " no original ideas". I'm gonna tell you a little secret….. they've been doing it from the jump. Problem is when they DO happen, you don't show up….they make almost no money……..and now we're back here, where you bitch about what DOES make money.

  18. Saw Skull Island and the new Godzilla. Sorry, based on those two movies, Godzilla would without a doubt kick Kong's ass.
    Hollywood no longer has any original ideas. They are either rehashing old movies or preaching to us peons how they are so much smarter than we are.

  19. "Despite their deaths in the original." Propaganda works best when it's internally consistent, but it does to have to be… It's good to see, the uninterrupted proof Hollywood is ChiCom owned persists with the production of nothing new, just old stories retold for the 10th time just now woke to the point no one will pay for a ticket even if the gov't forced movie attendance.

  20. These 2020 movies gonna suck man. Recent Godzilla movie kinda flop, And Avatar movie is overrated. Only Movie intresting is Monster huntet but produce by RE movie guys? I hate RE Movies. All these Movies had a horrible prequels like recent Ghostbusters…and they suppose to look forward to? I think not. Try bettee next time.

  21. Dam it I know Kong will win cuz he is an ape more human. But Godzilla has more arsenal better powers than just strength and anger.

  22. Anyone following the DUST channel on You Tube knows that there are really great ideas coming out in Sci-Fi. Sadly none of them are getting through to the dead brains in Hollyweird. What a bunch of ripoff drivel.

    The really funny part of all this is that at the some point in the year they all get together for a ceremony and a) insult the President, b) insult Fly-Over country, c) get all preachy about how "we need to save the planet" after flying into the ceremony on a private jet d) tell us how humbled they are to receive the accolade from a closed circle of leftist koolaid drinkers. The fact that they are even now kowtowing to Chinese censorship tells you all you need to know about these folks.

    Maybe if they bomb enough times they'll get the message, but I doubt it.

  23. Save yourself gas, money, and disappointment and just read Dune. Hollywood can't screw that up for you.

  24. Hollywood is screwing up the movies no one wants to go see their crappy movies any more that's why they're losing millions at the Box office I think people are tired of seeing women beat everybody up Or comic book movies

  25. Screw the avatar, I want Dune. And I want Vangelis to compose the soundtrack, the way he did for the Blade Runner.

  26. I like the isekai aspect of the monster hunter movie but I'm not optimistic about it, looking forward to Dune

  27. I like the isekai aspect of the monster hunter movie but I'm not optimistic about it, looking forward to Dune

  28. Godzilla vs King Kong AGAIN … please … some REAL CREATIVITY … PLEASE!!!!! Avatar1 yawn … 2-5 DOUBLE YAWN!!!

  29. A monster movie with an impressive amount of human actors?. Excitement dead.

    Also, the dude that made the RE movies?. That motherfucker is like the newer Uwe Boll.

  30. Bunch of pansies in here. You guys sound miserable. Don't like this, don't like that. Boo hoo. Cry me an F'n River
