[Updated Friday, April 9 1:22pm]: Paramount is the latest studio to shift its entire slate around. The highly-anticipated Snake Eyes, based on the G.I. Joe character, is getting bumped up to July 23 of this year from its previous October 22 date and Jackass will move into the October spot it vacated. The Tom Cruise-led Top Gun: Maverick is getting delayed once again from July 4th weekend to November 19, meaning his other franchise film, Mission: Impossible 7, originally scheduled for that November date, is getting pushed to May 27 of next year. That move bumps Dungeons & Dragons out of that May spot and 2022 completely to March 3, 2023. Mission: Impossible 8 is now also getting moved to 2023. Meanwhile, an untitled Bee Gees biopic has been dated for November 4, 2022. Interestingly, Paramount also stealth announced a new Star Trek movie for June 9, 2023 in the middle of its release date calendar shift.

It’s a new year and that means new movie releases. 2020 was tumultuous, with movie slates shifting dramatically. Quite a few big tentpoles slated to hit theaters last year were bumped to this year, while other movies always scheduled to hit theaters in 2021 also juggled around. The calendar below will likely continue to shift, at least for the first few months, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of upcoming films to get excited about.

Here’s every movie we know is coming to theaters in 2021 as of right now. We’ve also added 2022’s big movie releases, and previously released 2021 movies can be found at the bottom.
