The first quarter of 2023 is done, and we have seen some blockbusters already. In just three months, we have seen some of the best movies in their own genre as well as some of the biggest failures. John Wick 4 came out in March, and that might be the coolest movie I have ever seen. Pathaan became the highest-grossing Bollywood movie, and both DCEU and MCU disappointed on the superhero front.
John Wick 4 also killed the myth that movies are not doing great at the post-pandemic box office. It showed that if you made a movie the audience likes, they would watch it at the cinema hall. But you know that we are just getting started, right? Nine months are left in 2023, and we will get some of the biggest films we have ever seen in these 9 months. Cinema is ready for a redemption arc after a very dull 2022. As we mentioned, there are nine months left in 2023. So, we have decided to cover the nine most anticipated movies to look out for in 2023. Buckle your seatbelts because this ride is going to be wild.

Potentially the most awaited movie of 2023. Oppenheimer’s trailer garnered 30 million views in just one month and you don’t know how big of a deal that is post-pandemic. And it is something unprecedented for a movie trailer after the coronavirus.
People are underestimating what this movie is capable of because this might not be an action flick that will cater to everyone. But this movie has big Hollywood stars and Christopher Nolan’s name. I think this movie will break some serious records and will be one of the best movies of 2023.
When Barbie was announced back in 2021, no one was this interested. But this movie can be something considering the casting of Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simon Lu, Greta Gerwig, and Noah.
This can be a celebration of Barbie World or a complete breakdown of the facade. And if you ask me, it should be the latter one. Barbie has the potential to be the cinematic phenomenon of the year.
We don’t know what Barbie will bring, but it is one of the Most Anticipated Movies of 2023.
Ridley Scott directed Napoleon is ready to sweep us off our feets this year. The movie stars Joaquin Phoenix as Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon will be his tale to the top of the mountain, becoming the emperor.
The movie will be from the point of view of his wife, Josephine, who Vanessa Kirby will play. The assembled cast and snippets that have been released look astonishing. Truly a movie to look forward to.
Killers Of The Flower Moon
Martin Scorsese might have a sleeper hit with him this year in the form of this movie. Killer Of the Flower Moon is a perfect example of marketing done right. The movie is based on a novel of the same name.
It is a mass murder investigative thriller movie, and if done right, it can be the best movie of 2023. The cast involves Leonardo Di Caprio, Robert De Niro, and Brander Fraser in prominent roles, with some more giants in the cast list.
Killers Of The Flower Moon has all the potential in the world. The runtime of the movie is 3 hours and 26 minutes. It means 3 hours of Martin’s brilliance, and I am all in for that, as I need it as much as possible.
Imagine a movie so star-studded that you forgot to include Margot Robbie and Edward Norton in the trailer. Margot Robbie is also on a roll this year, as two of her movies are looking to break every record post-pandemic.
We have aliens, amazing visuals, Wes Anderson as a director, a star-studded cast listing, and aliens. Asteroid City has everything it needs to succeed, and with Scarlett Johansson and Tom Hanks in the lead, this movie is ready to rule the box office.
Dune: Part Two
The trailer of Dune 2 is releasing as we are writing it. The first part of Dune was a huge success. Denis Villeneuve did a marvelous job adapting the book as Dune might be the most accurate book adaptation I have seen in a long time.
And the best part is that the first part was just a prologue. In the second part, we will see some of the biggest action set pieces alongside a very intense political battle, so get ready to witness one of the year’s biggest movies.
Indiana Jones and The Dial Of Destiny
When the trailer for the fifth part of Indiana Jones was released at the Star Wars convention, fans lost their minds. The trailer might have been dull, but the newly recruited cast members made up for it.
Fans still have faith in James Mangold, and the trailer not revealing much can be a part of the strategy. Anyway, keeping all things aside, Indiana Jones is still an amazing journey, and seeing Harrison Ford alongside Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a treat in itself.
Well, Margot Robbie is not the only one who will rule the box office in 2023. Timothée Chalamet’s Starter Wonka is also one of the most anticipated movies of 2023. Directed by Paul King, the movie will show Willy Wonka in a new avatar.
The movie will focus on a young Willy Wonka and his earliest adventure, where he meets Oompa-Loompas and changes his world. We have seen many iterations of Willy Wonka over the years; this one is completely refreshing.
Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One
If you think that Mission Impossible franchise is dead, then I have to tell you that you are wrong. As director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise are completely locked on the event part of the franchise, expect a stellar movie at the least.
The test screening for Mission Impossible 7 was done a few months ago, and everyone reacted positively to the movie. There will be Dead Reckoning Two in 2024, and trust me on this; Tom Cruise won’t let you down.
We are constantly searching for the next blockbuster as avid moviegoers. The most anticipated movies of the year provide an exciting preview of what moviegoers can expect, and we can’t wait to see them.
