2020 took a lot from us. One industry that was put on hold was the entertainment industry, including production and release of blockbuster movies. Well the new year is upon us and the industry is tired of waiting. Here are the most anticipated movies, some that were on hold for an entire year, that are finally coming to an Idaho theater near you.

“No Time to Die” 
I love Daniel Craig, and as James Bond, yes please. This film was pushed back over and over and over again in 2020. You just need that full theatrical experience for a well done James Bond Movie. Expected to be out in April in theaters.

“Coming 2 America”
I dont know how I missed this one even being in the works but if you love a good comedy like I do, this should do it. The original Eddie Murphy comedy "Coming to America" came out in 1988. Looking to give his career a boost, we will see how the second one does. You can stream it on Amazon Prime in March.

“A Quiet Place Part II”
While I have watched my fair share horror movies, they are not what I would choose on any given night. That is probably why I have yet to see the 2018 surprise blockbuster “A Quiet Place”. Its about monsters who hunt you when you make noise. Here's the trailer for the second one, being released this year.

“Black Widow”
This one goes more into Black Widows past and what she is doing to right some wrongs. I am sure Marvel is glad to get back on the big screen. Another type of movie that just does better with big sound and big screens.

“Godzilla vs. Kong”
OK, this is one that I am excited about even though it is not in my usual go to genre. Even if you are not excited, you must at least be intrigued by this one.

“In the Heights”
Did you watch / like “Hamilton”? After so many at work telling me its worth watching, and after I finally did watch it, I realized they were right, it was worth watching. This movie is a musical and with some stars and the creator of Hamilton. It has inspirational feel good vibes.

“Venom: Let There Be Carnage”
This looks crazy and like one that my seven year old will have to wait quite a while to watch. In the meantime he can play with his Lego Venom. Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson go all out in their character rolls.

“Top Gun: Maverick”
In this sequel Tom Cruise is still in the military and still flying planes 30 years later. While the first was a triumph, I am not sure it was worth making a second this many years later. I may be pleasantly surprised though....

“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”
Shang-Chi is a Marvel character a lot of people don't know about but that is all about to change. Plus I love a good martial arts-influenced movie. Coming out in July of 2021.

“The Suicide Squad” (re-do)
The first “Suicide Squad” didn't get the best feedback after the fact. DC wanted a re-do and they chose well with James Gunn leading the way in this make. He successfully made “Guardians of the Galaxy” work one that was a challenge. I've been just doing movie trailers but this is a 4 minute behind the scenes look and it is looking pretty good to me.

“Death on the Nile”
Did you see the 2017 hit “Murder on the Orient Express”? If you liked it you will like this one. I love a good murder mystery and this one checks all the boxes for me.

“Dune”
I am a bit of an underground science fiction nerd, at least once in awhile. So this one is for people who like to get out of the norm and experience things other-worldly. A successful movie based on the Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel "Dune" has been tried a few times. None have been hugely successful and some have even been flops, so will it work this time? My nerdy side is willing to give it a try.

“Mission: Impossible 7”
I don't even know what to say about this one, other than, there's another...

What are you most excited to see this year?
