Update: Monday, October 18 9:51a.m. – Another round of schedule shuffling, this time from Marvel Studios, who are shifting every movie in their 2022-23 slate back by one release spot. The move isn’t related to any Covid-19 concerns or fears, but rather that Marvel’s production and post pipeline has gotten jammed up after the delays of the past year and Marvel has made the choice to shift in order to allow more time to finish these films. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, previously set for March 25, 2022, will now kick off summer and open May 6, 2022. That move boots Thor: Love and Thunder from that may date to July 8, 2022. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will then bump to November 11, 2022. Captain Marvel sequel The Marvels moves from that November date to February 17, 2023. Lastly, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania moves from that date to July 28, 2023. Marvel parent company Disney is also moving Indiana Jones 5 from July 29, 2022 to June 30, 2023.

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.
