Our Most Anticipated 2023 Movies

August 26th, 2023Our Most Anticipated 2023 Movies

With intense action flicks like MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – DEAD RECKONING PART ONE to the latest adaptation of THE COLOR PURPLE, and everything in between coming to AMC Theatres before the end of the year, it’s truly a great time to be a movie fan. But, that’s just the beginning, as other anticipated 2023 movie releases like TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: MUTANT MAYHEM and DUNE: PART TWO will also remind us why we keep coming back.

Here are some of the most anticipated movies of 2023, listed in order of release date.

Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - DEAD RECKONING PART ONE is one of those movies that Paramount Pictures could release with no trailer or barely any promotion and still have packed movie houses upon release. Based on everything we’ve heard about the franchise’s seventh installment, it’s easy to see that Tom Cruise’s latest go as Ethan Hunt is going to be impossible not to enjoy. And just like was the case with TOP GUN: MAVERICK last summer, this is a movie you HAVE to see on the biggest screen possible.



A Greta Gerwig-directed BARBIE movie is something we never knew we’d want but also something we have to have, like, right now. Waiting to see the world Gerwig has created with Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling and the rest of the movie’s cast is an increasingly difficult task, especially with all those incredible trailers that have teased the movie. As adults, it feels so weird saying this, but we can’t wait to live in this “Barbie world” for a couple of hours.

BARBIE opens July 21st


The same day BARBIE welcomes us to a fluorescent and plastic world, Christopher Nolan’s OPPENHEIMER will introduce us to the man who created the bomb that forever changed our own. If the director’s previous blockbusters are any indication, this upcoming historical drama will be extremely loud, really, really big, and possibly feature an unconventional time structure. Oh, and expect some of the biggest names in Hollywood to show up, even if it’s only for a few minutes.

OPPENHEIMER opens July 21st

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: MUTANT MAYHEM is one of those late-summer releases that will certainly be a must-watch for all the younger members of the audience before heading back to school. But at the same time, the animated film about everyone’s favorite “heroes in a half-shell” taking on a gang of mutated criminals is something even the young at heart will surely be able to enjoy on the big screen.


The Equalizer 3

Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua have teamed up an impressive five times over the years, with their most recent collaboration being the soon-to-be-released THE EQUALIZER 3. When former DIA officer Robert McCall’s (Washington) retirement in Southern Italy is brought to an abrupt end, the highly-trained gunman turns his attention to the Sicilian Mafia in an effort to stamp them out and protect his newfound family and friends.

THE EQUALIZER 3 opens September 1st

The Creator

In the follow-up to 2016’s ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, Gareth Edwards will take audiences on a journey with a former special forces soldier named Joshua (John David Washington) as he is tasked with hunting a mysterious figure whose creations were key to the war between humans and artificial intelligence. THE CREATOR looks to be a dark, grimy, and enchanting dystopian future experience.

THE CREATOR opens September 29th

Killers Of The Flower Moon

Martin Scorsese’s new crime epic, KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON, opens in theatres this fall. Set in 1920s Oklahoma, the movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Lily Gladstone, centers on the investigation into a series of mysterious murders involving members of the Osage tribe in the oil-rich land.


The Marvels

After discovering that using their powers causes them to switch places, Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) team up to get to the bottom of the situation. Nia DaCosta’s THE MARVELS will also see the debut of Dar-Benn (Zawe Ashton), a Kree warrior in possession of a powerful weapon that will surely give the trio of superheroes a test of their strength and wits.

THE MARVELS opens November 10th

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

Set decades before Coriolanus Snow became the ruthless leader of Panem, Francis Lawrence’s THE HUNGER GAMES: THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS AND SNAKES will see a much younger version of the one-day president as is tasked with training a tribute named Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler) for the 10th annual competition. Political intrigue, action, and all kinds of drama await in this highly-anticipated prequel.



Ridley Scott and Joaquin Phoenix team up for the first time in more than 20 years with NAPOLEON, a biographical drama about the life and legacy of the French military and political figure. With epic military battles, a tumultuous romance shared by Napoleon Bonaparte (Phoenix) and wife Josephine (Vanessa Kirby), and aspects of the French emperor’s life explored, this historical epic sounds like a must-see.

 NAPOLEON opens November 22nd


Paul King’s upcoming musical comedy, WONKA, will see Timothée Chalamet portray a younger version of Roald Dahl’s iconic candy maker as he sets out to make his mark and find his place in the world. In addition to the DUNE: PART TWO star, the movie’s cast also includes the likes of Rowan Atkinson, Keegan-Michael Key, Sally Hawkins, Hugh Grant, and many, many more.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Before year’s end, comic book fans will get to see the return of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman in this highly anticipated DCEU sequel. In AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM, Arthur Curry (Momoa) will become the last line of defense for Atlantis after an ancient and awesome power is unleashed upon the world.


The Color Purple

This Christmas, Blitz Bazawule will bring to theatres a new take on THE COLOR PURPLE with a musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s classic novel of the same name. Set over the course of multiple decades, the movie follows Celie Harris-Johnson (Fantasia Barrino) as she rises through the impoverished American South to make something of herself.

 THE COLOR PURPLE opens December 25th

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons why we’re excited about these anticipated 2023 movies coming to AMC Theatres throughout the year.
