With everything going on in the world right now, we are all stuck inside waiting for the days to go by. Watching movies have become one of our favourite ways to pass time. However, there are only so many movies you can indulge in. Therefore, we decided to make a list of movies that will be coming out (hopefully!) later this year that you can get excited for.
Christopher Nolan’s next project is a science fiction action thriller named “Tenet”. Tenet tells the story of a secret agent who is tasked with preventing World War III through time travel. Not much is known about the movie but Nolan’s movies are usually incredibly done and judging by the trailer, it seems like Tenet is going to exceed all expectations! It stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh. It is scheduled to be released on July 17, 2020.
The long awaited live action adaptation of Mulan is going to hit the theatres on July 24, 2020. The movie is based on the Chinese folklore “The Ballad of Mulan”. While the plot remains almost the same, there have been some changes made in the new adaptation. Captain Li Shang, Mushu and Shan Yu have been removed and will be replaced by other characters. Disney is known for exceeding people’s expectations with their movies and we can’t wait to watch Mulan!
3. The Spongebob Movie: Sponge On The Run
Spongebob fans, rise for the moment you’ve been waiting for! In this computer-animated action comedy movie, Spongebob and Patrick set on a rescue mission to save Gary the Snail, who has been “snailnapped” fro Poseidon. The duo travels to the Lost City of Atlantic City and delves into the origin of Spongebob and Gary’s meeting when they were both young children. The movie is expected to release on August 7, 2020.

Wonder Woman returns to the big screen after a successful run at the box office in 2017. Directed by Patty Jenkins, the sequel follows Diana in 1984 when she comes into conflict with two enemies.
