Today we take a look at the most anticipated films by the public in this 2023, starting with ‘Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning – Part I’seventh chapter of the saga that will arrive on our screens on July 14th strong on a budget of 290 million dollars. In short, no expense has been spared for a story also set in Rome and Venice which still sees the stainless Tom Cruise as the agent Ethan Hunt who returns with his team for another secret mission to save us from chaos and destruction. Next to him we will find again Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg and Vanessa Kirby. Already planned for the release of the sequel, ‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning – Part Two‘, for June 28 next year
Remember then ‘Spider-Man – A new universe’ which in 2018 represented the first animated film with Spider-Man as the protagonist? The sequel will be released, actually two of which the first, ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’is scheduled for June 1 while the third film ‘Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse‘ will arrive in 2024. Here the young protagonist Miles Morales is catapulted into the Multiverse, where he meets a team of “Spider-Heroes” who must face a new threat.
Also highly anticipated ‘Oppenheimer’ by Christopher Nolan, cult director (Insomnia, The Dark Knight, Interstellar, Dunkirk, Tenet), based on a book that won the Pulitzer Prize which tells the story of one of the fathers of the atomic bomb and above all the development of the deadly bomb during the years of the Second World War. The plot revolves around theManhattan Project‘ of which Oppenheimer is scientific director in a laboratory where the brightest minds worked on technological development in the military field. It is the project that will lead to the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. All-star cast (Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., Emily Blunt, Kenneth Branagh, Florence Pugh, Josh Hartnett, Matt Damon, Gary Oldman, Rami Malek) and release July 20.
For science fiction fans here is ‘Dune: Part 2’ also directed by Denis Villeneuve (November 2023) which continues the epic story based on the novels of Frank Herbert. Partly shot at the Tomb of Brion, near Treviso, nothing is known about the plot at the time. But speaking of sequels, much anticipation for ‘The Exorcist‘ which brings back the atmosphere of one of the most terrifying and innovative horror films in the history of cinema. From October 12 in theaters, it is directed by David Gordon Green who has successfully put his hand to the Halloween saga with the three recent films.
Finally, I close with the film that I most personally look forward toor the fifth chapter of the saga of the most fascinating and reckless archaeologist in the history of cinema: ‘Indiana Jones and the wheel of fate‘ will obviously see the octogenarian as the protagonist Harrison Ford now close to retirement involved by his goddaughter Helena in an affair in which ex-Nazi scientists collaborate with NASA to help the United States beat the Soviet Union in the space competition. He will arrive on June 30th and I can’t wait. Because I missed it, damn it I missed Indiana Jones!
