What's Your Question?

How to Find a Movie Theater Near You

If you’re ready for a fun night out at the movies, it all starts with choosing where to go and what to see. From national chains to local movie theaters, there are tons of different choices available. Here are the best ways to find a movie theater near you.

Fandango is the leader in the movie theater ticketing business. So naturally, the website is a great place to go to figure what the current movies are in theaters right now. The theater search is very simple, just enter your city or zip code. It will then populate a list of the theaters nearest to you, including all of the movies playing and their show times.

Local Discount Theaters

If seeing the new theater movie release isn’t as important as going out without breaking the bank, check out your local discount theaters. These can be more difficult to locate, because there’s no national directory of them. However, you can simply do a Google search for them. Typically called “Discount” theaters or “Second-Run” theaters, there’s typically several in most cities. If you’re a beer lover, you may be able to locate theaters that serve restaurant food and drinks rather than the usual theater fare.

In addition to housing one of the most trusted movie ratings online, IMDB offers information on movie theaters and their showtimes. Simply set your location and see a list of available theaters and showtimes. A bonus is that you can easily see the IMDB ratings for different movies, so you can have a good idea of whether something will be to your liking or not before heading out.

IMAX Theaters

IMAX theaters offer a more immersive movie experience than traditional theaters. From bigger screens, better images and realistic audio, some of the best new movies are better viewed in IMAX. It’s the best option for movie connoisseurs that simply want the ultimate experience. To check your local theater’s 3D movie schedule, check the IMAX website and enter your address under the “Find a Theatre” tab.

3D Theaters

Major movie theater chains offer Real3D movies, which are super fun for both adults and kids. Simply wear 3D goggles and enjoy an added dimension to regular flicks. AMC, Cinemark and Regal Cinemas all offer this option, which is available for select films.

The technology is all digital and theaters are typically available in major cities. Just like local discount theaters, there’s not a single comprehensive resource for the 3D theaters. So the best way to find them is on Fandango or Google.

Best Movies of 2022 Ranked

Welcome to the best-reviewed movies of 2022! All eyes are on the film slate as 2022 represents the first year since the pandemic lockdown that saw theaters back at full capacity. The year started strong with Scream in January, becoming the first Certified Fresh movie in the franchise since 1997’s Scream 2.

Spring saw a string of critical hits, including the dark crime epic on The Batman , the spirited YA comedy  Turning Red from Pixar , and two from A24 : Some throwback horror with X , and Everything Everywhere All At Once , which would become A24’s biggest box office hit, surpassing  Hereditary.

Of course, no story about the state of movies in 2022 is complete without full mention of  Top Gun: Maverick . With afterburners activated, the crowd-pleasing blockbuster set records across the board, including an easy landing on the coveted billion-dollar movie hall of fame .

More headline-grabbing films include another great Adam Sandler dramatic turn in Netflix’s  Hustle , the surprise  Predator return-to-form prequel  Prey , the latest from auteurs Jordan Peele and Robert Eggers ( Nope and  The Northman , respectively), and  Jujutsu Kaisen 0 , which sees anime continuing to make inroads with critics and at the box office.

The 35 best films of 2022

The essential movies of the year: from ‘The Woman King’ to ‘Top Gun: Maverick’

Phil de Semlyen

It’s not been your standard, regular, common-or-garden year at the movies so far. The slate of big new movies remains a little (okay, a lot ) skinnier than usual and release dates have continued to shift, with more than one big release decamping to the safer surrounds of 2023. But even the lingering impact of Covid hasn’t stopped it being an often crowd-pleasing, occasionally electrifying year. From awards picks like Parallel Mothers and Licorice Pizza, to virtuoso indie gems like British chef thriller Boiling Point   and   Aftersun to popcorn perfection like RRR  and Top Gun: Maverick , there’s been much to celebrate. Here’s our best of the best of the year.


🔥  The best films of 2023 (so far) 📺 The best TV and streaming shows of 2022 😬   The best thriller films of all-time 🤣   The best funny films of all-time 🌏   The best foreign films of all-time

The best movies of 2022

Turning Red

35.  Turning Red

Awkwardly, no Pixar film had been solo directed by a female filmmaker until Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Domee Shi came along with this cute-as-buttons creature feature about a 13-year-old girl who turns into a red panda when big emotions come knocking. It’s based on her own childhood – okay, not the panda part – and comes freighted with the authentic growing pains of adolescence. The only pity is that it went straight to Disney+, because its surprisingly Godzilla-esque climax would have looked epic on the big screen. What we said : ‘Its boldest move is tackling female puberty in such a candid, empathetic way.’


34.  Utama

In few places are the effects of climate change more acutely felt than among Bolivian farmers, for whom devastating drought represents an existential threat. In photographer-turned-filmmaker Alejandro Loayza Grisi’s captivating film, a married pair of llama farmers (assuredly played by non-professionals) face an uncertain future as their community, herd and way of life perish. The result is the most surprising widescreen experience of the year. What we said : ‘It’s best enjoyed on a screen so big you’ll move your head reading the subtitles.’

Bones and All

33.  Bones and All

Like Badlands  plonked into the midst of Reagan’s America, this sensitive yet spiky adaptation of Camille DeAngelis’s coming-of-age novel charted a couple of outsiders navigating the outskirts of a shut-off society. Oh, and they just happen to eat human flesh. No biggie. On the surface, it’s a mile away from director Luca Guadagnino’s sun-kissed  Call Me By Your Name , beyond starring Timothée Chalamet, but there’s connective tissue in its deeper exploration of young love and the tentative connections of sensitive souls. Look out, too, for an eyecatching turn from Taylor Russell.

What we said : ‘It flows like a Joy Division song: moody and ethereal until it escalates into a burst of sonic violence.’

Fire of Love

32.  Fire of Love

This elemental, awe-inspiring doc follows two volcanologists – Maurice and Katia Krafft –  to the ends of the earth and witness their passion: for this molten geological marvels and, even more movingly, for each other. It’s narrated by indie doyenne  Miranda July  and was a Sundance breakout hit at the beginning of the year, but it feels like one of pieces of non-fiction filmmaking that will stand the test of time. It shows us the kind of spectacular fiery abyss that most blockbusters can only dream of – and not a drop of CGI in sight. What we said : ‘There are only so many times you can shout ‘‘woah!’’ at yourself during one film, but this doc pushes that number up.’


31.  RRR

There’s a reason Telugu director SS Rajamouli sits so high on our list of the 50 coolest filmmakers in the world : his OTT epics are just absurdly fun. And this year’s RRR , the third highest-grossing Indian film ever, could be the most fun of them all. The ‘Rs’ stand for ‘rise, roar and revolt’, themes that play out in a Raj-era storyline about British colonialism and an abducted child that occasionally pokes through all the insane fight scenes, razzed-up dance routines, exploding trains and tigers (there are a lot of tigers). It’s the perfect gateway drug to the highs of Telugu action cinema.

What we said : ‘Rajamouli has a knack for finding stars who command the screen and setting them loose on bonkers-sounding adventures.’


30.  Cow

Aside from being absolute gold for pun-lovers, this moo-tion picture is a bold doc from British indie director Andrea Arnold ( American Honey ) that’s set entirely among a herd of dairy cows. On one level, it’s just 90-minutes of voiceover and explanation-free bovine action – a whole world of moos and manure. On another, it’s a moving cycle-of-life examination of a cow’s life that’s far too unsentimental to try to steal your heart but kinda manages it anyway. What we said : ‘Arnold gives us a straightforward slice of a cow’s relentless life of muck, milk, breeding and feeding.’

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

29.  Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

A perfect marriage of filmmaker and source material if ever there was one, Guillermo del Toro’s stop-motion animation gives Carlo Collodi’s fairytale a beautifully intricate, tactile and enchanting new adaptation. With co-director Mark Gustafson, he sends his newly carved wooden toy on a mission to become a human boy, bringing light to his grieving carpenter creator Geppetto and scuttling joyfully though magic realms, and among frowning townsfolk and fascists alike. It’s a family film that comes without the sugarcoating: a real treasure for older kids and grown-ups, and the perfect gateway drug to Pan’s Labyrinth et al .

Boiling Point

28.  Boiling Point

Proving that he can do just about anything, Stephen Graham fuels this terrific one-take drama with skittish, sweaty energy as a chef on the edge in a buzzy London restaurant – all while shucking oysters like a pro. As an advertisement for getting into the hospitality industry, it’s pure nightmare fuel. As a viewing experience, it’s a thrilling watch that left everyone who caught it feeling rinsed out like a kitchen sink at the end of a dinner service. 

What we said : ‘Stephen Graham and Vinette Robinson help make this the best kind of worst ever restaurant trip.’

Bergman Island

27.  Bergman Island

It’s takes chutzpah to rock up to the home of one of the true titans of cinema and make a movie that riffs on his life and work, but Mia Hansen-Løve’s sunlit relationship story set on Ingmar Bergman’s island of Fårö pulls the feat off with aplomb. Vicky Krieps and Tim Roth play two writers whose relationship seems to be hitting the skids almost imperceptibly, as they joust gently in their supposed creative haven. There are sharp observations galore here – about relationships and women’s creative emancipation – as well as a juicy, meta twist to keep you on your toes.

What we said : ‘Hansen-Løve has a real genius for amplifying small moments in relationships, and she finds deft collaborators in Krieps and Roth.’

Jackass Forever

26.  Jackass Forever

When a film gets described as a touching treatise on nostalgia, friendship and growing older, it doesn’t usually also feature a half-naked man hang-gliding into a cactus. But that’s the unique joy of this unexpectedly glorious sixth outing from Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius and the gang – a movie that combines the hilariously puerile with the gently profound, while introducing a new generation of willing young pain-junkies to the joys of the Port-A-Potty and the human ramp. It still hurts just to watch it, mind you.

What we said : ‘This franchise is far more than just a patchwork of batshit crazy hijinks and dick jokes.’


25.  Prey

Fittingly for a movie with a cloaking device at its heart, we did not see this period-set  Predator  flick coming, Sure, the trailer looked sufficiently promising to banish awkward memories of the last few outings from this creaking franchise, but just how much fresh life talented  director Dan Trachtenberg  has managed to inject into it amid all the gory, inventive offings still came as a very happy surprise. Yes, it belongs on the big screen rather than a straight-to-Hulu release but at least it's easily rewatchable – and with part-Sioux actress Amber Midthunder providing its ridiculously engaging action hero and that mandibled space bastard actually scary again, it'll be on our favourites list for years to come. 

What we said : ‘ Aided by a forceful performance from relative newcomer Midthunder, this Predator movie is full of surprises.’

Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy

24.  Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy

Last year saw Ryusuke Hamaguchi break through to western audiences with the Oscar-nominated Drive My Car . His quickfire follow-up, a triptych of loosely connected relationship tales, made fewer waves but is just as worthy of the clamour. Its beguiling trio of 30-odd-minute vignettes takes the perspective of three different women, each with a deeper heartache and confusion that steers them in emotionally dangerous directions. Together they make for a magnetic slice of slow cinema.

What we said : ‘The writer-director’s greatest gift is in wringing intense emotion from each moment.’


23.  Elvis

The trailers made it look a little, well, hammy, but Baz Luhrmann’s ode to the King turns out to be a hip-shaking and hypnotic experience. Is it occasionally over-the-top? Yup. Are the maximalist visuals a lot to absorb over two-and-a-half hours? Sure. Does Tom Hanks’ waxy, fat-suited version of Colonel Parker seem to be in danger of melting from contact with the nearest bright light? That too. But for all its flaws, Elvis is an irresistible night at the pictures: a more-is-more collage of music, history and Presley pilgrimage that’s lit up by the spectacular Austin Butler.

What we said : ‘Just when Baz Luhrmann’s hyper-stylised visions were starting to feel played out, he delivers his best film for 20 years.’

A Hero

22.  A Hero

A kind of Iranian Ken Loach, Asghar Farhadi is a master at weaving thorny morality tales into a wider social framework. This Cannes hit is another probing look at life in a hierarchical, judgmental society. Its protagonist, Ramin, emerges from imprisonment for bankruptcy and finds a shot at redemption in the form of 17 gold coins found by his girlfriend. Does he do the right thing or milk the situation for financial or social capital? The genius of A Hero is in the ways Farhadi finds to turn this basic moral dilemma into a nightmarish Gordian knot that shows up a malfunctioning social order for what it is. What we said : ‘It’s a superb morality play that keeps us guessing right to its powerful final shot.’


21.  Belle

‘It’ girls, grieving high-schoolers and cyber dragons collide in Mamoru Hosoda’s dazzling anime skew on ‘Beauty and the Beast’. The tunes are banging, the visuals eye-popping and the ideas, exploring life as a digital native and the oldies who forlornly try to help Gen Zers navigate it, richly conceived. The Japanese animation master has come a long way since being fired as director on Howl’s Moving Castle .

What we said : ‘It’s high time to mention Studio Chizu in the same breath as Studio Ghibli, because this one is an absolute feast.’


20.  Benediction

Great War poet Siegfried Sassoon gets the touching, immaculately mounted Terence Davies treatment in a biopic that manages to be both heart-wrenchingly sad and PG Wodehouse-funny. Peter Capaldi plays the once-closeted gay writer in his older, embittered years, but it’s Jack Lowton who really catches the eyes as the younger version, who struggles to find himself amid the buzzing gadflies of London’s post-war social scene. The writing is bayonet sharp, as when Sassoon is haughtily informed that his poetry ‘has gone from the sublime to the meticulous’. Benediction is yet more proof that Davies’ filmmaking remains sublime.  

What we said : ‘A glidingly elegant, emotionally ransacking story of queerness, repression and the past.’

The Woman King

19.  The Woman King

A historic action epic about Black women, The Woman King is as entertaining as it is culturally significant. It's immense fun watching Viola Davis and her Amazonian warriors train up and fight the bad guys in 1800s Africa, and it’s moving when you realise how groundbreaking and empowering this is. Already a big hit in America, it’s proving that Black female stories can smash it at the box office. Bring hankies for this emotional epic in the vein of Braveheart and Gladiator .

What we said : ‘It’s a story of sisterhood and racial identity that deserves to pack in the crowds.’

Decision to Leave

18.  Decision to Leave

Forget the hammer smashes and octopus guzzling of  Oldboy , because this   Park  Chan-wook movie showcases the  slowburn, cerebral side of the Korean auteur. It’s a Busan-set  puzzle box of a thriller  that sees a detective and a young widow locked in a complex dance involving a murder, an investigation and a lot of barely suppressed desire. As you can tell, it takes a leaf out of the  Hollywood erotic thriller   handbook – albeit with a chillier atmosphere and even more satisfyingly mazy plotting. What we said : ‘ Park Chan-wook slows things down with a woozily seductive and r idiculously elegant  murder-mystery.’


17.  Nope

While the rest of us were mastering sourdough, Jordan Peele spent the pandemic fusing sci-fi, horror and westerns to create a whole new kind of monster movie. The result – with no disrespect to any our baking efforts – was even better: an unnervy, unsettling and frequently funny third Peele effort, lit up by Keke Palmer’s livewire performance, a killer score and terrifying sound design. It’s easy to over-lionise the filmmaker as the savour of horror – as one poor tweeter discovered – and Nope isn’t without flaws. But it’s a blockbuster that’d unafraid to be depart radically from the norm, securing a likely spot in the midnight movie pantheon in the process.

All Quiet on the Western Front

16.  All Quiet on the Western Front

Seen 1917 ? Brace yourself for 1918. Netflix’s often awe-striking German-language reimagining of Erich Maria Remarque’s classic antiwar novel takes place in the dying embers of the Great War. And ‘dying’ is the operative word, because this vision of conflict is as violent a film as you’ll see this year – a cacophony of screaming shells, rumbling tanks and the rat-a-tat of flying bullets. In the middle of it all is a young German conscript (talented newcomer Felix Kammerer) just trying to stay alive. It’ll leave you dazed.

Hit the Road

15.  Hit the Road

It’s been a bittersweet 2022 for Iranian filmmaker Panah Panahi: his dad, legendary auteur Jafar ( The White Balloon ), was sentenced to six years in prison by the country’s oppressive regime; but it’s also been the year his debut film, a beguiling but quietly tumultuous family drama set on the dusty highways of Iran, met its public. And what a debut it is – filled with wry wit and barbed social comment about modern life in the country, and with an outstanding performance from six-year-old Rayan Sarlak as the rascally youngster in the back seat of his family’s SUV. The Little Miss Sunshine comparisons are unavoidable, but Hit the Road ’s destination is altogether more impactful.

What we said: ‘It’s a  road trip movie with an aching heart that’s filled with wry relatability.’

Three Minutes: A Lengthening

14.  Three Minutes: A Lengthening

At a sliver over an hour long and built around a restored 180-second-long piece of home video footage from a American couple’s 1938 journey through Europe, the raw materials for this Holocaust doc might feel slight, but their impact is monumental. Part act of memorial, part moving exploration of our relationship with the past, and part detective story, filmmaker Bianca Stigter (partner of Steve McQueen IRL) plunges us into, and beyond, the celluloid to reveal the real people whose lives would soon be snuffed out by the Nazis. Helena Bonham Carter’s probing voiceover only adds to a sense of immediacy that makes its small crowds of Polish Jews feel like new friends by the end. The effect is haunting and deeply emotional.

Brian and Charles

13.  Brian and Charles

Ridiculously charming, playful and touching, this bittersweet British comedy is the year’s surprise package. An oddly-shaped package, sure, what with its titular robot, Charles Petrescu, being built from an expressionless mannequin’s head plonked on top of an old washing machine. But through a much-harder-than-it-looks feat of physical comedy, off-beat dialogue and pure heart, his – ‘its’ doesn’t feel right – bond with lonely inventor Brian Gittins (David Earl) sparks into a magical bromance that delves deeply into what is it to be human – and half-washing machine.

What we said : ‘ Funny and touching, this bittersweet robot buddy movie is the oddly-shaped surprise package of the year.’

Triangle of Sadness

12.  Triangle of Sadness

Sure, it’s not always subtle – no film with a six-minute barf-athon right in the middle ever is – but that’s not to say that Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or winning comedy, a film that channels the spirit of Swift and Golding, isn’t sophisticated. The Swede slowly saws at the chair legs of entrenched power structures – fashion, money, class and race – until they crash to the floor in the sublimely executed chaos of the third act. Harris Dickinson and the late Charlbi Dean are great as the model/influencer couple at the heart of the storm, but  Filipina actor  Dolly De Leon steals the show as the ‘overseas worker’ who executes Triangle of Sadness’ s memorable coup.

Everything Everywhere All at Once

11.  Everything Everywhere All at Once

Somewhere out there is a small but fanatical posse that holds Swiss Army Man on their shoulders as an unheralded classic. For the rest of us, this high-concept multiversal sci-fi is the first proper showcase of what directing duo the Daniels could do. With Michelle Yeoh launching from laundromat owner going through marital strife – basically a Mike Leigh character – to action star and back again, and then into a multitude of other adventures, Everything Everywhere All At Once does exactly what the titles implies and sends you spinning through time and space in exhilarating style.

What we said : ‘The Daniels juggle silly gags and weird visuals like cackling Dadaists.’

The Quiet Girl

10.  The Quiet Girl

Like its title character, the shy nine-year-old  Cáit , this Irish surrogate family drama is as delicate as porcelain – and just as beautiful. It reads like an evacuee story from the pages of Enid Blyton – a young girl is sent from her warring family home to stay with two strangers and slowly opens their hearts – but The Quiet Girl  tells it with deep feeling and freshness. That it leans so heavily on two first-timers, filmmaker Colm Bairéad and his 12-year-old star  Catherine Clinch, makes it all the more remarkable, The  Banshees of Inisherin may not be the only Irish story in town at this year's Oscars.


9.  Living

Some movie do-overs feel entirely superfluous (see: just about any Hollywood remake of a Scandi thriller), but others just make perfect sense. So it is with this sublime reimagining of Akira Kurosawa’s 1952 masterpiece Ikiru , in which Bill Nighy’s terminally ill civil servant rages, very politely, against the dying of the light, with some help from  Sex Education ’ s Aimee Lou Wood as his life-positive underling. Nighy has never been better, delivering a remarkable turn that should, in a fair world, be rewarded with Oscars. Props, too, to  South African director Oliver Hermanus, who has an instinctive grasp of stuffy English internality, and screenwriter Kazuo Ishiguro,  who rivals his work on ‘Remains of the Day’ with a moving, deeply humane script.


8.  Happening

In a year in which the US Supreme Court put Roe v Wade in its crosshairs, Audrey Diwan’s tumultous, hard-hitting drama arrives to show the realities of illegal abortions. It’s not for the faint hearted – it goes further than Mike Leigh’s Vera Drake in depicting this bleak world – but it’s a gripping story of a pregnant student who risks prison in ’60s France, and Anamaria Vartolomei makes a luminous heroine full of gritty determination.

What we said : ‘An atmospheric, gripping drama full of poignant contemporary relevance.’

The Worst Person in the World

7.  The Worst Person in the World

Norwegian actress Renate Reinsve is the heart and soul of this touching and inventive account of one millennial life that unfolds over several years in Oslo. Very much not the worst person in the world, her medical student-turned-writer is a perfect avatar for the uncertainties and confusions of young adulthood: a whole mess of conflicting desires, moments of directionless and emotional rawness that feels endlessly relatable. And her showstopping run through a freeze-framed city is possibly the movie moment of the year so far. 

What we said : ‘Any film that can combine questions of mortality with funny, fully alive scenes of sex, social awkwardness, professional screw-ups and throwaway fun is a rich one.’

The Banshees of Inisherin

6.  The Banshees of Inisherin

In Bruges  is an all-time comedy great, so the reunion of Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson under the watchful eye of director Martin McDonagh is an enticing prospect for any movie lover. And boy, does this fizzingly funny and flawlessly acted anti-buddy movie live up to expectations. Instead of a gobby hitman and his long-suffering colleague, the pair play a couple of old pals on an Irish island whose friendship hits the skids in a big way. Peppered with its writer-director’s trademark dark wit, it carries at its heart an p oignant political allegory for the sorrows of The Troubles. 

What we said : ‘With apologies to Three Billboards fans, this is Martin McDonagh’s best film since In Bruges .’

Parallel Mothers

5.  Parallel Mothers

Pedro Almodóvar gets serious with this poignant investigation of Spain’s buried Civil War trauma, although without ever sacrificing his light touch and delight in giddying melodrama. Penélope Cruz lights it all up like a starburst, with her performance as a new mum caught up in a case of mistaken identity in the maternity ward a career high, even by her own lofty standards. In a just world, she would have picked up her second Oscar for it.

What we said : ‘Entering Almodóvar’s world is a pleasure, even when we’re faced with pain and tough lessons.’


4.  Aftersun

Scottish filmmaker Charlotte Wells announced herself as a major talent with this sun-washed and achingly poignant drama about a divorced dad (Paul Mescal) and his young daughter (the effortlessly cool Francesca Corio) navigating the highs and lows of an eventful Turkish seaside holiday. All framed in flashback, Wells mixes up the visual aesthetic to communicate the way gauzy, long-ago memories can sink into your bones. Th e past is a foreign country, a s another coming-of-age classic, The Go-Between , once noted.   Aftersun was a gorgeous passport that took us there and left us richer, if more tear-stained, for the experience.

What we said : ‘A father-and-daughter drama that will stop you in your tracks.’

The Northman

3.  The Northman

‘A widescreen rallying cry for cinema in the age of streaming’. So read Time Out ’s admittedly fairly breathless appraisal of Robert Eggers’ brilliant, blood-soaked Viking epic when it landed in (smashed into? Ransacked?) cinemas in April. But the sentiment stands, because in an age increasingly dominated by streaming sites, The Northman is a useful reminder that the place to witness the grandest, boldest cinematic visions is on the biggest screen possible – and unless you live in an IMAX, that won’t be in your front room.  

What we said : ‘Thank Odin for Robert Eggers and his mad, brilliant, violent, hypnotic, trippy Viking opus.’

Top Gun: Maverick

2.  Top Gun: Maverick

Okay, hands up who saw this practically flawless blockbuster coming? A few people probably did – this long-in-the-making Top Gun sequel was originally due out two years ago – but that enforced delay detracts not one iota from the purest widescreen thrill ride of the year so far. Tom Cruise’s ace pilot provides heart, soul and some fighter jet manoeuvres that we’re pretty sure defy every law of physics in the book. Mind you, the book gets binned early (and literally) in this one, to reinvent the so-called ‘legacy sequel’ into something that soars way above hollow Hollywood cash-ins. What we said : ‘Tom Cruise owns a crowd-thrilling sequel that easily surpasses the original.’

Licorice Pizza

1.  Licorice Pizza

Paul Thomas Anderson delivered his sunniest film with this ‘70s nostalgia trip to the San Fernando Valley about a cocksure teenager trying to win the heart of a drifting twentysomething. Somehow that teenage-gaze premise never comes over remotely Porky’s , helped by two breakout lead performances from Cooper ‘son of Philip Seymour’ Hoffman and Alana Haim, some A-list turns (Bradley Cooper as Hollywood producer-stroke-total-maniac Jon Peters), and PTA’s usual godlike touch behind the camera. What we said : ‘Paul Thomas Anderson’s sweet coming-of-age yarn is free-spirited and fun as hell.’

The Most-Anticipated Movies Coming in 2022

Don't Worry Darling Avatar 2 Black Adam Black Panther 2

Will 2022 be the year the film release calendar returns to semi-normalcy? No one knows yet, but while many movies premiered directly on streaming last year, there are dozens of big titles set for theatrical-only debuts, from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” to “Avatar: The Way of Water.”

Streaming offerings will also continue to represent strongly, with Netflix planning Noah Baumbach’s “White Noise,” starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig among the high-profile offerings, though viewers will have to wait until 2023 for Apple TV Plus’ “Killers of the Flower Moon” from Martin Scorsese.

Some of the film world’s most prominent auteurs have pics expected this year, with many likely to premiere at film festivals in Venice, Telluride and Toronto. Wes Anderson, Luca Guadagnino, Kasi Lemmons, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Darren Aronofsky and Paul Schrader are among the indie favorites who have movies planned to debut in 2022.

The coming year looks to be a pivotal one for the movie business, and the pandemic has accelerated the transition from a theatrical-dominant model to a time when each film gets evaluated on how it can best reach the audience, whether streaming, in theaters, for premium rental prices or a combination. But one thing is clear: There are plenty of exciting pics coming out in the next year, whether your jam is superheroes, sci-fi, horror or maybe something completely new. And yes, Tilda Swinton stars in almost every one of them.

The 355 (Jan. 7)


Simon Kinberg’s latest directorial effort sees Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Penélope Cruz, Diane Kruger and Fan Bingbing teaming up for an all-star spy movie.  When a top-secret weapon threatens  world safety , a CIA agent (Chastain) must join forces with a set of international agents to recover  it. “The 355” was originally scheduled for release in  January 2021, but  was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.   

Scream (Jan. 14)

Scream 5

A decade after their last outing (and 25 years after they first faced off against Ghostface), Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette return for “Scream.” The fifth installment in the bloody franchise finds the trio searching for a new killer who’s terrorizing the once-sleepy town of Woodsboro. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin  and Tyler Gillett take the helm from horror legend Wes Craven, who died in 2015.

Moonfall (Feb. 4)


An extinction-level-event-sized hunk of rock is headed for Earth and it’s going to take a starry cast of scientists to save mankind? No, it’s not “Don’t Look Up“ — it’s the latest epic from disaster auteur Roland Emmerich, who recruited Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley, Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu and Donald Sutherland to avert the titular disaster. Though the Feb. 4 release date doesn’t scream prestige, the bonkers trailer promises action, thrills and more lunar conspiracy theories than “Room 237.”

Jackass Forever (Feb. 4)

Jackass Forever

The infinite madness of Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man, Preston Lacy, Dave England, Chris Pontius, and Ehren McGhehey made its big screen debut in 2002 with “Jackass.” Twenty years, a handful of films and hundreds of stunts later, the gang returns for “Jackass Forever,” billed as the final installment of the circus-like prank documentary franchise. The movie features guest appearances from Eric Andre, Tony Hawk, Machine Gun Kelly, Tyler the Creator and more, but noticeably missing is original “Jackass” performer Bam Margera, who is tied up in a lawsuit with his former collaborators after being fired from “Jackass Forever.” Jeff Tremaine returns as director.

Death on the Nile (Feb. 11)

Gal Gadot as Linnet Ridgeway, Emma Mackey as Jacqueline De Bellefort and Armie Hammer as Simon Doyle in 20th Century Studios’ DEATH ON THE NILE, a mystery-thriller directed by Kenneth Branagh based on Agatha Christie’s 1937 novel.

After solving the case in 2017’s “Murder on the Orient Express,” Kenneth Branagh returns as Hercule Poirot for another whodunit with a star-studded lineup of suspects. Branagh, who sports some preposterous facial hair, co-stars with Gal Gadot, Annette Bening, Russell Brand and Armie Hammer in the long-delayed murder mystery which promises plenty of twists and turns.

After riding triumphant into Valhalla with “Mad Max: Fury Road,” director George Miller makes a characteristic zag with his follow-up: a romance between an academic and a genie.
