Most Anticipated Films of 2024

We love making this list every year, but with the 2023 Hollywood strikes (both WGA and SAG-AFTRA) you may notice some film repeats from last year as slates got shifted around due to production shutdown. Knowing that, 2024 is shaping up to be the year of remakes (aka new movie adaptations) and sequels (or in some cases, prequels). Many of which feel completely unnecessary. Enter High Voltage. To help you navigate the waters, let’s dive into the 2024 film releases you should get excited about in order of release date.

Note: All release dates are subject to change by the studios at any moment.

Mean Girls

Synopsis: New student Cady Heron gets welcomed into the top of the social food chain by an elite group of popular girls called the Plastics, ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George. However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend, she soon finds herself caught in their crosshairs.

Reason to Watch: It’s a musical! More specifically an adaptation of the stage musical! We love a musical.

Release Date: January 12, 2024 only in theaters


Synopsis: Reclusive author Elly Conway writes best-selling espionage novels about a secret agent named Argylle who’s on a mission to unravel a global spy syndicate. However, when the plots of her books start to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organization, the line between fiction and reality begin to blur.

Reason to Watch: Anything Matthew Vaughn touches (as Director, Writer or Producer), we’re in.

Release Date: February 2, 2024 only in theaters

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire

Synopsis: The Spengler family returns to the iconic New York City firehouse where the original Ghostbusters have taken ghost-busting to the next level. When the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must unite to protect their home and save the world from a second ice age.

Reason To Watch: As long as a Reitman is involved, we’re down for anything Ghostbusters. Besides, Paul Rudd is the perfect addition to the Ghostbusters team.

Release Date: March 29, 2024 only in theaters


Synopsis: Tashi, a tennis player turned coach, has transformed her husband from a mediocre player into a world-famous grand slam champion. To jolt him out of his recent losing streak, she makes him play a challenger event — close to the lowest level of tournament on the pro tour. Tensions soon run high when he finds himself standing across the net from the once-promising, now burnt-out Patrick, his former best friend and Tashi’s former boyfriend.

Reason To Watch: Shortly after the SAG-AFTRA strike began, Challengers was supposed to host it’s world premiere at Venice Film Festival but they instead postponed release until 2024. Being union strong, this move immediately intrigued us.

Release Date: April 26, 2024 only in theaters

The Fall Guy

Synopsis: After leaving the business one year earlier, battle-scarred stuntman Colt Seavers springs back into action when the star of a big studio movie suddenly disappears. As the mystery surrounding the missing actor deepens, Colt soon finds himself ensnared in a sinister plot that pushes him to the edge of a fall more dangerous than any stunt.

Reason To Watch: Judging by the trailer alone, it appears we’re getting a taste of the Emily Blunt signature sass we fell in love with during The Devil Wears Prada. Plus Hannah Waddingham’s in it, enough said.

Release Date: May 3, 2024 only in theaters


Synopsis: After discovering she can see everyone’s imaginary friends, a girl embarks on a magical adventure to reconnect forgotten IFs with their kids.

Reason To Watch: With so many sequels, remakes, continuations and prequels this year, an original concept is a very welcomed addition.

Release Date: May 17, 2024 only in theaters


Synopsis: Ballerina is the first spin-off of the John Wick franchise, and is set between the events of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and John Wick: Chapter 4.

Release Date: June 7, 2024 only in theaters

Deadpool 3

Synopsis: Wolverine is recovering from his injuries when he crosses paths with the loudmouth, Deadpool. They team up to defeat a common enemy.

The Lord of the Rings: War of the Rohirrim
