Hollywood movies most anticipated in 2023: Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the film business anticipates another prosperous year in 2023. The year 2022 saw the popularity of a number of movies, including Top Gun: Maverick, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Avatar: The Way of Water, both in theatres and on streaming services. Despite significant delays caused by the pandemic, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Universe both had successful film releases.
Blockbusters, adaptations, and original movies are all scheduled to release in 2023 as a result of the epidemic, including the long-delayed Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. In the upcoming year, keep a look out for these highly anticipated Hollywood films.
Dune Part 2
The movie Dune: Part Two, directed by Denis Villeneuve, is one of the most eagerly awaited of 2023. Villeneuve always intended to make a sequel to the 2021 picture Dune, and he made the decision to divide the complex sci-fi tale into two parts. Paul Atreides is the main subject of the second book as he starts a new life with the Fremen. The first movie was a hit, displaying Villeneuve’s talent for bringing the Dune universe to life and keeping the politics and action intriguing. As Paul (played by Timothée Chalamet) develops as a leader, Dune Part 2 is anticipated to contain even more of both themes. The sequel also gives Chani, played by Zendaya, a bigger part.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is another hotly anticipated blockbuster of 2023. It was previously listed as one of the most anticipated movies for 2022, therefore it would be difficult to leave it off the list for 2023. Tom Cruise plays IMF agent Ethan Hunt in the movie, which was directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who also oversaw the last two instalments in the series. The union of Cruise and McQuarrie has elevated the Mission: Impossible franchise, demonstrating how exciting their chemistry is. Additionally to strengthening the main plot and expanding Ethan’s character, they were successful in executing amazing stunts. Mission: Impossible 8 will be released on July 14, 2023, and it will be eagerly awaited due to the cliffhanger ending of the movie.
Barbie, portrayed by Margot Robbie in the Warner Bros. film, and directed by Greta Gerwig may make 2023 Barbie’s year. Ryan Gosling plays Ken in the movie, and Will Ferrell, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, and other actors also appear in supporting roles.

John Wick: Chapter 4

Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne), Charon (Lance Reddick), and Winston are returning actors in the cast (Ian McShane).
