Get ready to mark your calendars because 2024 is shaping up to be a year of cinematic excitement, and we’re here to give you a sneak peek at the must-watch blockbusters that are set to grace the silver screen.
Get ready to embark on an interstellar adventure like no other with Pixar’s highly anticipated 28th feature film, Elio. Set to grace the screens in March 2024, this imaginative masterpiece marks the directorial debut of the talented Adrian Molina. Of course, this isn’t his first movie in general, as he has writing credits for the beloved Coco, Toy Story 4 and the most recent Luca.
Starring the dynamic duo of America Ferrera and Yonas Kibreab, Elio introduces us to an ordinary 11-year-old boy, aptly named Elio, whose life takes an extraordinary turn when he’s unexpectedly whisked away into the cosmos. Beamed up into space by a twist of fate, Elio finds himself at the heart of an incredible misunderstanding – he’s mistaken for Earth’s envoy on a distant planet. Elio embarks on a journey that blends humour and compassion as he navigates the universe, diplomacy, friendship, and the challenges of being an accidental ambassador.
Kung Fu Panda
Elio isn’t the only big-budget animating movie that will be gracing the silver screen in March 2024, as DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda will be getting another chapter in the coming year. Under the deft direction of Mike Mitchell, known for his vibrant work on The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part starring Jack Black, and other huge names in the industry like Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, Dustin Hoffman, and David Cross, we’re expecting this movie to be exciting to both youngsters and their parents.
Revealed during CinemaCon 2023, the plot will centre around Po’s thrilling clash with an enigmatic chameleon adversary, all while embarking on a quest to discover the next worthy Dragon Warrior. As fans eagerly anticipate this exciting instalment, it’s worth noting that the Kung Fu Panda universe’s charm has even extended to the gaming world, with panda-themed online slot games like Panda Pow, Fat Panda, and Big Panda. Could Kung Fu Panda 4 inspire the ultimate game for casino developers to explore? Only time will tell!
Hold onto your chimichangas because the anti-hero is making a return in Deadpool 3, set to hit theatres on May 2024. Under the directorial guidance of Shawn Levy, fans are eagerly anticipating the antics that only Ryan Reynolds can deliver. But there’s an unexpected twist in this instalment: none other than Hugh Jackman’s iconic Wolverine is rumoured to make a comeback!
This film marks the first Deadpool venture under the Disney banner following the Fox acquisition, raising questions about how the franchise’s signature R-rated humour will mesh with the MCU’s family-friendly PG-13 atmosphere. However, the real mystery lies in how and why Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will emerge from retirement after the poignant farewell presented in the acclaimed Logan.
As the curtain rises on the cinematic landscape of 2024, these eagerly anticipated films are poised to capture our hearts, tickle our funny bones, and ignite our imaginations. Grab your popcorn, settle into your seat, and get ready to be swept away by the magic of the silver screen.
