Upcoming movies in India you wouldn’t want to miss!
One of the things that the people of India missed the most during the strict lockdown because of the pandemic was going to the movies. Thankfully, more and more establishments have been permitted to operate again as the country starts to fight back against the virus this 2022.
As the nation’s cinemas start to re-open their doors for the public, find out the different movies that you don’t want to miss here in our entertainment section in Alif News. These movies won’t fail in providing you with a memorable experience, whether they be dramatic, comedic, action-packed or anything under the sun.
So without further ado, here are some upcoming movies in India that you wouldn’t want to miss in 2022:
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
After a massive hit in the form of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Marvel is set to release yet another potential blockbuster this May with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This time, instead of being a side character in the webhead’s movie, the titular Dr Strange is out front and centre in an adventure in the ever so expanding multiverse in the MCU.
The multiverse has forever been hinted at and we’ve never seen it until Spider-man: No Way Home. This time, the convoluted concept of the multiverse is the main setting of the movie and it’s where Dr Strange will spend the most time in.
Because of this and the appearance of past Spider-man casts in Tom Holland’s latest outing as the webhead, fans are speculating some appearances from past Marvel characters, most especially, Professor X, played by Patrick Stewart. Aside from that, Tom Cruise is also theorized to appear as an alternate version of Iron man and various leaked images have shown this.
Regardless of whether or not these theories are true, fans can still expect an awesome superhero flick, especially considering Sam Raimi is the director behind it. Raimi is known for his work behind the original Spider-man trilogy with Tobey Maguire. Moreover, he’s also famous for his works behind various iconic horror movies with the most popular one being the Evil Dead trilogy.
Thankfully, fans from India won’t have to wait long to see this blockbuster movie as it’s set to release on May 6, 2022.
Choose or Die
Who said you have to head to cinemas just to watch the latest high-quality movies? Thanks to streaming services such as Netflix, people of India can now enjoy some of the best films from the comfort of their homes and one of the best examples of this is Choose or Die.
The gore-filled horror movie starring Asa Butterfield has proven to be worth your time with its hair-raising scenes that are sure to keep you at the edge of your seat. The premise follows a pair of friends who discovers an old computer game that provides its players with two choices: Choose or Die. Things quickly take a turn for the worse though as the players find out that the game is much sinister as it seems and it does indeed have the ability to kill.
Judging from the trailer alone, the movie seems to be a rollercoaster of emotions with horror, gore and some bits of drama thrown into the mix. Moreover, the movie is also believed to be the start of a much bigger franchise which can only be determined by the performance of the film.
Moving over to a more lighthearted film, the mischievous band of stuntmen makes a comeback during their later years in Jackass Forever. In this fourth instalment, Johnny Knoxville along with the original cast of the franchise goes on some of the most insane stunts in Jackass history.
Aside from the original cast, several celebrities also make a cameo in this film. One of the most famous clips that were posted before the film’s release was with the UFC Heavyweight Champion, Francis Ngannou punching Steve-O in the groin. The clip amassed millions of views in days which also served as a teaser to what viewers can expect when they watch the movie in theatres.
Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the cast went to great lengths just to promote this movie with one of the most notable PRs being Knoxville’s appearance on WWE. The 51-year old took it to the ring and created a feud with one of the promotion’s hottest talents, Sami Zayn. The two initially went head-to-head during the Royal Rumble back in January which led to the final face-off between the two in the grandest stage of WWE, Wrestlemania.
The Jackass franchise has always been famous for their over the top stunts and with this instalment, they promise to do things that people have never seen before.
Jurassic World: Dominion
Another movie that’s set to make a huge splash this summer is Jurassic World: Dominion. The sixth instalment in the long-running franchise of Jurassic Park is set to be the biggest one, especially considering that the original cast is returning along with the new generation.
Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neil and Laura Dern will be reprising their roles once more to take on the dinosaurs head-on along with Bryce Dallas Howard and of course, Chris Pratt.
The film takes place four years after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom where the prehistoric creatures escaped the Lockwood Estate and are now freely roaming the earth. Owen Grady along with Claire Dearing seeks help from the survivors of the previous Jurassic Park trilogy in hopes to reclaim the world as they know it.
Filled with unbelievable acting and action set-pieces, it’s a guarantee that you’ll have an incredible time watching this movie with your friends and family. Plus, the thrilling and scary nature of the different dinosaurs will surely make your spine tingle
When Robert Pattinson was announced to be the next actor to take up the cowl of Batman, fans were filled with mixed emotions. Some doubted him while others were excited to see a younger version of Bruce Wayne. Thankfully, all the doubters were proven wrong when Matt Reeves’ iteration of the caped crusader was received with positive reviews and became a certified box office hit.
In this movie, Bruce Wayne is only two years into his journey as the Dark Knight which means that he’s still new to the crime-fighting world in Gotham City. However, this movie is the first one to perfectly show Batman as a detective which is something that other movies fail to provide.
Moreover, in almost 90% of the movie, you’ll find Pattinson inside the Batsuit which is a breath of fresh air considering that other movies spend more time on Bruce Wayne’s story instead of the cape crusader’s.
Additionally, he’s not the grizzled veteran that Ben Affleck played in the Snyderverse. Although Affleck is indeed one of the best cinematic versions of Batman, this movie also proves to be one of the most fantastic depictions of Gotham’s hero.
Aside from Pattinson, the cast is filled with Hollywood’s brightest stars including Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Alfred and Collin Farell who’s unrecognizable as the Penguin. Moreover, it features some most intense scenes seen not just in a Batman movie but in a superhero film, in general. This is thanks to the talents involved in the film including the talented director in the form of Matt Reeves.
Video game adaptations have been notoriously known for being terrible because of the past movies released throughout the years. Some examples of this include the Resident Evil franchise which was fairly successful but veered away from the source material too much. Thankfully, this pattern is set to be broken with the release of Uncharted this year.
Gamers in India will enjoy this movie as it follows one of the best Playstation franchises in the history of the console. The film is led by Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg who plays younger versions of Nathan Drake and Sully respectively.
Just like the game, this film is filled with over the top action scenes which are sure to keep you at the edge of your seats. This partnered with the quips of Nathan Drake makes this movie one of the most entertaining films this year.
