1. Everything Everywhere All at Once

Delightfully bonkers on the surface, this inventive extravaganza from the directing team called Daniels (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) has a deep layer of family feeling and a well-earned emotional pull at the end. Michelle Yeoh is ideal and comically straight-faced as Evelyn, a harried laundromat owner with tax problems who enters a multiverse of alt-Evelyns . Exploding with colour, at times the film is a phantasmagoria of morphing identities and shifting universes – in one Evelyn does laundry, in another she's a movie star ­– yet it always remains true to its believably humane characters. It's the rare art film that can make audiences cry, and also rake in a ton of money, taking in more than $100 million at the box office worldwide. (CJ)

2. Top Gun: Maverick

A belated sequel to 1986's Top Gun seemed like a bad idea. But when Pete "Maverick" Mitchell (Tom Cruise) returned to the US Navy's elite fighter-pilot school, the resulting blockbuster wasn't just a thrilling showcase for some spectacular aerobatic displays, but a touching, bittersweet drama about getting older. It was also the year's most successful film. So... how did Cruise and co do it? Simple, really. They brought back all the elements from the original Top Gun, and then they improved every single one of them . Of course, it helps that Cruise looks better today than he did in 1986. (NB)

3. Turning Red

This joyous Pixar coming-of-age cartoon introduces a 13-year-old Chinese-Canadian (voiced by Rosalie Chiang) who transforms into a giant fluffy red panda whenever she gets stressed. Her fast-moving misadventures are rendered with all the expertise you would expect from Pixar, but Turning Red is more personal than the studio's other releases. From its multi-cultural urban setting to its positivity about being a proudly nerdy teenage girl, everything in it seems to come straight from the heart of its director and co-writer, Domee Shi. It's just a shame that the film went straight to streaming, rather than getting the cinema release it deserved. (NB)

4. Happening

The past is a template for the present in Audrey Diwan's eloquent, heart-wrenching story, based on a memoir by Annie Ernaux, winner of this year's Nobel Prize in Literature. Anne, an ordinary college student, (touchingly played by Anamaria Vartolomei) is desperate to get an abortion in France in 1963. Knowing that motherhood would destroy her future, Anne unhesitatingly seeks out illegal help, in detailed scenes that expose the hypocrisy of the medical establishment and the callousness of society at large. Diwan's measured approach reflects the heroine's quiet determination, avoiding preachiness and melodrama even as Anne races against time toward a suspenseful ending. Artful and socially resonant, Happening is one of the most poignant and moving films of the year. (CJ)

5. After Yang

Let's just flatly say: Kogonada is a genius. The director of the stylish character piece Columbus (2017), and a major force behind the exquisite Apple TV+ series Pachinko, he breathes new life and visual brilliance into After Yang's tired-sounding premise of an artificial intelligence with feelings. Colin Farrell is affecting as a father trying to repair his young daughter's beloved AI robot, Yang, played by Justin H Min with the unmistakable glimmer of a human soul. Filmed in a style that is still and beautiful, infused with golden light, and set in a timeless near-future, this transcendent film is stunning, from the exuberant family dance competition in the opening credits to its revelatory ending. (CJ)

6. Moonage Daydream

Brett Morgen's Crossfire Hurricane and Cobain: Montage of Heck bent the rules of the rock documentary, but his David Bowie film, Moonage Daydream, smashes them to pieces. Instead of taking viewers on a guided tour of the best-known parts of Bowie's life and career, it plunges them into a long, trippy exploration of his influences, travels, philosophies, and artistic endeavours: his acrylic painting and stage acting get more time than some of his albums. It's a bold approach to a fascinating and hugely charming man. And, as psychedelic as it can be, it eventually hones in on one universal question: what is the best way for any human being to live their life? (NB)

7. Triangle of Sadness

In the latest corrosive satire from Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure, The Square), the writer-director takes aim at the capitalist craziness inherent in fashion modelling, social media and luxury cruises. What's unique about Triangle of Sadness , which won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, is Ostlund's combination of subtlety and excess. He makes astute observations about small social niceties, but he pushes every awkward situation to the point where viewers gasp and wince . And then there's the scene in which a shipful of super-rich passengers suffers one of cinema's worst ever bouts of seasickness... (NB)

8. The Eternal Daughter

Tilda Swinton gives two stunning performances, playing both an aging mother, Rosalind, and her middle-aged, filmmaker daughter, Julie, in one of the year's most eloquent, hauntingly beautiful films. Writer and director Joanna Hogg plays off ghost stories, with the two women staying at a creaky old isolated hotel, where they seem to be the only guests. But as Julie grapples with trying to write a screenplay about her mother, and they talk about the past, it becomes clear that the film is really mining depths of memory and regret, questioning what we can and can't know about the people we love. The women's conversations and the atmospheric story, which unfold with ease, lead us to wonder what might have happened and what might have been imagined. What is undoubtedly real is the deep emotional impact of this delicately told film, evidence of a brilliant director at work. (CJ)

9. The Fabelmans

We've known for decades that the broken families in Steven Spielberg's films were inspired by his own, but in the semi-autobiographical The Fabelmans he gives us the story in a pure, direct, realistic form – no extra-terrestrials required – and creates one of his most emotionally honest, least sentimental works . The film is shaped by sharply-drawn performances from Gabriel LaBelle as the adolescent Sammy (Spielberg's fictional alter ego), Michelle Williams as his imaginative, frustrated mother, and especially Paul Dano as his no-nonsense father – the latter two being people so different, they are doomed to break apart. Sammy's amateur movies add wit to the film, but it is the family feeling that endures. Looking back with adult eyes, Spielberg sees his parents with all their flaws, yet infuses the film with warmth, understanding and love. (CJ)

RRR isn't just one of the best films of the year – it's several of the best films of the year. SS Rajamouli's Telugu-language masterpiece is an inspiring historical drama about Indian citizens rebelling against the British Raj in the 1920s; it's a glitzy romantic musical worthy of Hollywood's golden age; it's a shadowy crime thriller about two double agents who become friends; it's a crazily over-the-top action movie, and it's a thunderous superhero epic. What's most amazing is that all these genres and tones fit so seamlessly together to tell one powerful story. (NB)

11. The Banshees of Inisherin

Martin McDonagh's usual dark humour and honed dialogue are there in The Banshees of Inisherin, but he has swapped the splashy violence and aggressive irony of his earlier films (In Bruges; Seven Psychopaths) for something sadder, stranger and more poetic. This is a quiet, small-scale comedy drama that hinges on an absurd disagreement between two seemingly decent men (Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson) in a small pub on a tiny Irish island. It builds into a haunting fable, and a reminder of what a terrific actor Farrell can be . (NB)

12. Babylon

Epics are sprawling and messy, and so is Damien Chazelle's ( La La Land ) ambitious extravaganza about early Hollywood, when talking pictures came to be. There are so many buoyant set pieces and colourful performances, though, that they overcome the film's misbegotten flaws (too many endings). Margot Robbie is bold and sympathetic as Nellie LaRoy, a wild child actress who enters the film by crashing a crowded party full of jazz, drugs, naked bodies and star-making producers. Brad Pitt is at first hilarious as a silent-movie idol trapped in period films. A behind-the-scenes sequence about making one of his pictures is a frantic comic episode that could stand alone. And he is poignant as a new generation pushes him aside. There is an elephant, a studio mogul and a gossip columnist, all swirled into a bravura film that takes you fully inside its world, and suggests that the dark side of Hollywood and its magical creations were always one and the same.

13. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Benoit Blanc has another murder mystery to solve in Rian Johnson's irresistible follow-up to Knives Out . As in the first film, the suspects are a clique of wealthy, entitled Americans, but this time they're tech tycoons and social-media influencers (Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, Janelle Monaie, Dave Bautista) lounging around a private Greek island. The twisty plot isn't quite as ingenious as Johnson's last one, but the writer-director has gone all-out to make everything in Glass Onion as big, broad, funny and colourful as Daniel Craig's southern drawl. (NB)

14. Decision to Leave

Park Chan-wook puts a ravishing spin on a timeless story of romantic obsession and a detective who falls for his suspect. In Busan, South Korea, the meticulous Hae-jin investigates the death of an older man who fell off a mountain, leaving behind his beautiful young widow, Seo-rae. That she is a Chinese immigrant adds another layer of language and cultural misunderstanding. Suspicion begins to turn toward her, but by then Hae-jin may be too much under her spell to care. Park expertly feeds us just enough information to keep us enthralled and guessing as we go down the rabbit hole. This is also one of the best directed films of the year, each shot composed for maximum effect. Its off-kilter compositions, close-ups and wide vistas of city and countryside are captivating but never distracting. Park may owe a debt to Vertigo, but he makes the genre his own. (CJ)

Netflix Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio (Credit: Netflix)

15. Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio

You've probably never seen a Pinocchio who dances for Mussolini, but Guillermo del Toro's dark, stirring, yet life-affirming take on the classic tale of the puppet who becomes a real boy has more in common with Pan's Labyrinth and The Shape of Water , his own fantastical, politically charged films, than with the familiar Disney version. With bright, artfully designed puppets and dazzling stop-motion animation, he and co-director Mark Gustafson create a Geppetto whose young son is killed by a bomb during World War One. Decades later, in a drunken state of grief, he carves Pinocchio, a spindly-legged, long-nosed creature full of joy, who comes to call Geppetto Papa and to encounter a glittering blue Wood Sprite and her sister, Death (both voiced by Tilda Swinton; it's her year of dual roles). It's hard to imagine a more unsettling version of the story – Pinocchio runs off to join a carnival, and is forced to perform for the Fascist leader – or one as glorious and rich. It is as alive as its once-wooden hero, who loves life as much as any human boy could. (CJ)

In her typical crisply intelligent and authoritative fashion, Cate Blanchett plays Lydia Tár, a renowned conductor who is preparing for a major recording of a Mahler symphony. She seems to be an inspirational heroine, but as the big day approaches, Todd Field's novelistic drama whispers questions about how well Lydia has actually behaved over the years, how much her failings matter, and what her ultimate punishment should be. Who knew that two-and-a-half hours of conversations about classical music, arts sponsorship, and sexual politics could be so tense and gripping? (NB)

17. Aftersun

A coming-of-age story and an achingly beautiful depiction of a fragile father-daughter relationship, Charlotte Wells' first feature is a marvel of nuance, full of evident but often unspoken affection. Paul Mescal (Normal People) is touching as Calum, separated from his daughter's mother, trying to connect with 11-year-old Sophie (Frankie Corio, in an amazingly natural performance). During their holiday week at a slightly run-down resort in Turkey, they swim, sit on the beach and eat ice cream. Sophie is just old enough to see that in some way her father is deeply unhappy, but not adult enough to know more. An ordinary film would lead toward an explosive ending, but despite the mounting tension there is nothing plot-driven about this subtle, piercing, small wonder of a film, recently named Best British Film at the British Independent Film Awards. (CJ)

18. Onoda: 10,000 Nights in The Jungle

Lieutenant Hiroo Onoda was a Japanese "holdout" who refused to believe that World War Two had ended, and who carried on a guerilla campaign for decades in a jungle in the Philippines . This three-hour survival epic, directed by Arthur Harari, conveys the true story's mind-boggling scale and strangeness, but it's also a sympathetic character study of Onoda (played by Yûya Endô and then, in later years, by Kanji Tsuda). The lieutenant is presented as naive and misguided, but not too different from anyone who clings to a warped worldview, regardless of all the evidence to the contrary. (NB)

19. Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness

It might not be the year’s best science-fiction extravaganza about alternate realities – that honour goes to Everything, Everywhere, All at Once – but Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness is deliriously entertaining in its own right . The weirdest and scariest of Marvel’s blockbusters, it was directed by Sam Raimi , who made both the Evil Dead and the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy, and he fills the screen with his love of classic superhero comics and horror movies. The film isn’t just an exuberant celebration of pulp fantasy, though. There are some poignant musings on family, faith and sacrifice in among the flying zombies and green-furred minotaurs. (NB)

20. Corsage

Vicky Krieps' (Phantom Thread) quietly fierce performance as Empress Elisabeth of Austria is a perfect match for this sumptuous period piece with a brash contemporary soul. The story is set in 1877, when Elisabeth is turning 40, no longer the popular beauty she once was. Her palaces, stables and grounds have become a prison. Marie Kreutzer's film presents its heroine as an independent-minded woman in an era that is not yet on the cusp of modernity, signalling that paradox with a soundtrack of pop songs. Such bold moves give Corsage a bracing energy as it captures the inner struggles of a woman trying to escape the confines of social expectations and of time itself. The story departs from the facts most radically in creating a new final act for Elisabeth, one that is not necessarily happier but is true to her wilful nature and to this audacious film's savvy sense of invention.

The Best Movies of 2021

The year has provided some incredible films, many you can stream right now.

2021 is in the books, and despite the chaos, we’re still standing. So too is the movie industry, which has been on quite a rollercoaster ride courtesy of COVID-19 and our up-and-down efforts to contain it. Between the theatrical business’ state of flux, and the bumpy track record of movies that opted to debut day-and-date at the multiplex and at home–not to mention the sheer confusion caused by all these shifting paradigms–it’s a minor miracle that, as we get set to turn the calendar to 2022, the country’s cinematic state of affairs is as stable as it presently is.

Credit for that resilience goes in large part to the insatiable appetite of American cinephiles, as well as the abundance of terrific features that, over the past twelve months, have graced screens both big and small. No matter where they premiered (or were seen), offerings from illustrious auteurs and promising newcomers were everywhere, led by the latest from Joel Coen, Joachim Trier, Roy Andersson, Paul Thomas Anderson and Ryusuke Hamaguchi, whose dramas comprise our top five. Rather than restrict ourselves to a select few triumphs, however, we here at Esquire continue to believe that more is always merrier, and that especially this year, it’s only right to celebrate the numerous diverse domestic and international works that chilled, thrilled, amused, excited and inspired us.

While no list can be definitive, and no unanimous consensus can be achieved, we’re confident you won’t find a more eclectic and electric group of gems than those we’ve chosen as the Best Movies of 2021.

65) Honeydew

Don’t eat anything of unknown origins–a warning that goes unheeded by oft-bickering Riley (Malin Barr) and Sam (Sawyer Spielberg, son of Steven) in Honeydew . On a New England camping trip, the couple have a run-in with an unfriendly landowner who evicts them from their sleeping spot, forcing them to embark on a nocturnal trek through the woods that leads to the home of Karen (Barbara Kingsley). Though Riley and Sam are vegans, they’re compelled to chow down on some of Karen’s home-cooked beef and bread, the latter of which is especially dicey given that this region is notorious for having lost crops and cattle to a poisonous spore. That’s just the beginning of the ordeal writer/director Devereux Milburn has in store for his protagonists, who are joined at their dinner by a dazed-looking man with a bandaged head, and who soon discover that Karen has devious plans for them–some of it having to do with her daughter. Crafted with jarring edits and split screens for maximum disorientation, the ensuing mayhem is stunning, scary and considerably gross, heralding the arrival of a uniquely out-there horror voice.

64) Can You Bring It: Bill T. Jones and D-Man in the Waters

Timeless art is often born out of highly particular experiences. At least, that was the case with dancer and choreographer Bill T. Jones’ D-Man in the Waters , a famed 1989 piece that was inspired by the fatal battles of both his partner Arnie Zane and company star Demian “D-Man” Acquavella with AIDS. Director Tom Hurwitz and Rosalynde LeBlanc’s documentary Can You Bring It: Bill T. Jones and D-Man in the Waters is both a historic tribute to that work and an examination of its continuing relevance, which comes to the fore via former Jones collaborator LeBlanc’s staging of the number with a group of students at California’s Loyola Marymount University. The young performers’ attempts to make their adaptation of D-Man in the Waters speak to today is a pressing concern during rehearsals, and also factors into Jones’ visit to LeBlanc’s studio, where he provides casting pointers and background on the origins of the show, which Jones and original troupe members discuss with insightful poignancy. Decades after their original losses, their pain doesn’t appear to have dimmed, and Hurwitz and LeBlanc’s documentary illustrates how grief, survival and swimming-against-the-current resolve can be core catalysts for lasting creativity.

63) Cliff Walkers

Zhang Yimou ( Hero , House of Flying Daggers ) brings glamorous style to familiar spy-movie clichés in Cliff Walkers , a knotty 1930s-set espionage saga in which four Chinese communist agents sneak into Japan-occupied Manchuria to smuggle out the sole survivor of a torture camp. This quartet splits up into couples to achieve their covert aim, only to be immediately and constantly beset by encounters with comrades who may be double (or triple?) agents. Be it early shots from the perspective of its parachuting-through-trees protagonists, or a snowy attempt to infiltrate a metropolitan gala, Zhang blends Hitchcockian suspense with Dr. Zhivago beauty, all while shouting out to (among others) Charlie Chaplin and Sergio Leone. Virtually every convention in the Spy Fiction 101 book makes an appearance at some point, but the thrill is in the director’s orchestration of numerous set pieces that are all the more suspenseful for being somewhat inscrutable–a situation caused by plotting that keeps identities and relationships fuzzy and in flux. It may be dedicated to the Communist Revolution, but its real heart belongs to classic Hollywood.

62) The Vigil

Things go horribly wrong in The Vigil for Yakov (Dave Davis), a young man who–having left his ultra-orthodox Jewish community for a secular Brooklyn life–accepts a job sitting vigil for a recently deceased Holocaust survivor. That task not only returns him to the neighborhood (and faith) he rejected, but puts him in the crosshairs of an evil demonic force that, it turns out, plagued the dead man over whom he watches, and his wife (Lynn Cohen), who behaves creepily around David in her darkly lit Borough Park home. Keith Thomas’s feature debut has a great sense of its insular milieu as well as the trauma and stress of escaping an extremist religious environment, and the writer/director drums up suspense from set pieces that exploit silence to eerie effect. Davis’s harried countenance is the glue holding this assured thriller together, lending it an empathetic anguish that helps cast its action as a story about confronting the (personal and historical) past as a means of transcending, and escaping, it.

61) Cry Macho

Clint Eastwood’s movies are almost always best when they star their director. Back in the literal saddle for the first time in decades, the Hollywood legend’s latest finds him playing a broken-down ex-rodeo star named Milo who, to repay a debt to his former boss (Dwight Yoakam), travels to Mexico to retrieve the young man’s son Rafo (Eduardo Minett). The two embark on an odyssey back to the States with his fighting rooster Macho in tow. Eastwood underlines Milo’s virility at every turn–he punches out a bad guy, holds an adversary at gunpoint, tames wild steeds, and proves irresistible to the ladies–but simultaneously has him comment on the emptiness of violent machismo, which has left him with nothing but loneliness, heartache and regret. An adaptation of N. Richard Nash’s novel that moves at the same pace as its 91-year-old headliner, the film moseys along from one minor incident to another, playing a familiar Western tune with sweet sensitivity. Eastwood may be physically past his prime, but he’s still got plenty of grit and grace.

60) I Carry You With Me

Documentarian Heidi Ewing’s first narrative feature recounts the true-life story of Ivan and Gerardo, a gay Mexican couple who fled their fraught home lives for a new start in America. Dislocation is central to their tale, with Ivan in particular caught between love for his partner and for his son and family, whom he chooses to leave behind in search of freedom, tolerance and a potential career as a chef. I Carry You With Me exudes empathy for these individuals’ plights, which includes suffering sidewalk beatings from random homophobes and the slings and arrows of their disapproving clans. Ewing shoots their travails in warm hues and with handheld camerawork that often spies them through barriers, suggesting their imprisoned condition. Those circumstances don’t completely change once they reach the United States, as conveyed by late non-fiction passages that address the real Ivan and Gerardo’s present-day trapped-between-two-worlds situation. There are no easy answers proffered by this tender and compassionate film, just an irreconcilable combination of happiness, relief, and frustrated longing for an unachievable happy ending.

Natalie Morales’ Plan B is a refreshingly candid and open-minded celebration of pro-choice teen sex and friendship, but the real draw of this abortion-themed comedy is its potent humor. Convinced to throw a house party by her best friend Lupe (Victoria Moroles), Sunny (Kuhoo Verma) has sex not with her crush Hunter (Provost) but with religious nerd Kyle (Mason Cook)–a decision that leads to crisis when, the next morning, she comes to fear that she’s pregnant. Thus a rollicking mission to obtain a morning-after Plan B pill is born, driven by Sunny’s fear of not only teen parenthood but disappointing her demanding Indian mother (Jolly Abraham). Punctuated by a bevy of hilarious one-liners, Prathi Srinivasan and Joshua Levy’s script is raunchy and sweet in equal measure, capturing its protagonists’ anxieties and desires (for sex, for acceptance) with absurd heart. As the hesitant-to-come-out Lupe, Moroles is a consistent delight, and Verma is even better as the frazzled Sunny, in what may be the breakout performance of the year.

58) The Mitchells vs. The Machines

With The Lego Movie and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse , Phil Lord and Christopher Miller set new standards for visually and narratively inventive animated features, and they continue that hot streak with The Mitchells vs. the Machines , a wild tale of warfare between a family and a legion of robots controlled by an angry outdated AI (Olivia Coleman). This unlikely battle breaks out during the Mitchells’ cross-country trip to deliver wannabe-auteur Katie (Abbi Jacobson) to college, which itself is instigated by dad Rick (Danny McBride), who’s desperate to reconnect with his from-different-worlds girl. Father-daughter rifts are at the heart of writers/directors Michael Rianda and Jeff Rowe’s adventure, which blends CGI, hand-drawn and live-action material to create a zany rainbow-hued aesthetic that’s constantly surprising and inherently attuned to 21st-century online reality, where cartoons, memes and DIY styles reign supreme. Aided by an expert voice cast and a script that piles on gags and one-liners with verve–highlighted by a showdown with a legion of evil Furbys–it’s a manic ode to accepting and embracing the future while retaining bonds with the past.

57) Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)

In Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) , Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson doesn’t just restore never-before-seen footage of the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival; he expertly cuts it together to create a lively and passionate tapestry of Black America at a turning point. Resurrecting the memory of this forgotten concert–which took place on the day of the Moon landing, and in the same season as Woodstock–Thompson finds a Black and Latino Harlem in the throes of change, driven by a variety of factors that the director seamlessly integrates into his copious performance clips featuring the likes of Stevie Wonder, BB King, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Nina Simone, The Fifth Dimension and Mahalia Jackson. The canny, rhythmic structure of the film, which also includes commentary from those who played and attended the event, is key to its pointed power. Ultimately, though, it’s the music that lifts up these proceedings, which peak whenever Sly & the Family Stone take the stage.

Bob Odenkirk takes one hell of a beating in Nobody –and, per a joke made by his Hutch Mansell, you should see the other guys. Director Ilya Naishuller’s film is an obvious riff on John Wick , concerned as it is with a nondescript and seemingly meek family man who, following a home invasion, taps back into his government-assassin true nature and goes on a rampage that eventually inflames the ire of a Russian gangster (Aleksei Serebryakov). Yet a lack of novelty is hardly necessary in light of Odenkirk’s masterful performance as a man brought low by self-deception and, consequently, resurrected by facing his inherent angry identity. Odenkirk’s ability to handle the barrage of brutal set pieces thrown his way is itself part of this affair’s conceit, and yet once he proves his action-movie mettle, the proceedings lose none of their verve, delivering gory mayhem with a tongue planted firmly in cheek. The late participation of Christopher Lloyd and RZA only boosts the goofy charm of this R-rated romp, which goes for broke–and breaks a lot of bones in the process–to amusingly ferocious ends.

Loss leads to retreat for Edee (Robin Wright), a woman who responds to an unspecified tragedy by moving to a remote Wyoming cabin in Land . Willfully cut off from civilization, Edee finds her new survivalist existence more than a bit difficult, what with the bitter cold, the sparse food (courtesy of fishing), and the occasional outhouse run-in with a bear. In her directorial debut, Wright employs compositions that call understated attention to the alienated anguish of her protagonist, whom she embodies as a fragmented (and potentially suicidal) woman with a sorrow as deep and cold as the vast wilderness. A spark comes at her moment of wintery death courtesy of Miguel (Demián Bichir), a rancher who revives her first literally, and then figuratively, teaching her to hunt (as her personal Yoda) and reminding her of the vital human connection that gives everything purpose. Guided by Wright’s expressively interior performance and Jesse Chatham and Erin Dignam’s spartan script, the film captures the universal desire for escape in the face of grief, and the way resurrection often comes from accepting death as an inescapable facet of life.

54) Last Night in Soho

The seductive past is not to be trusted in Last Night in Soho , Edgar Wright’s musical-period piece-thriller about an aspiring fashion designer (and medium) named Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie) whose infatuation with 1960s London leads her down a dark rabbit hole when, upon relocating from the countryside to the city for school, she begins experiencing visions of a wannabe-singer beauty (Anya Taylor-Joy) and her charming manager (Matt Smith). Mirrors, staircases, pulsating colored lights and descents into literal and figurative infernos are all part of Wright’s stylish film, which eventually takes a sharp turn from Repulsion -style psychological freak-out to supernatural fright-fest. The director swings big with every bold aesthetic gesture, aiming to deliver scares and sexiness alongside pointed commentary about inherited female sexual trauma. Its soundtrack awash in era-specific deep cuts, Last Night in Soho is a cautionary tale about the dangerous allure of nostalgia that nonetheless radiates affection for ‘60s Soho’s electric energy. Reveling in its own deliriousness, it’s a mash-up spearheaded by an enchanting Taylor-Joy as a specter whose dashed dreams are the stuff of nightmares.

53) The Night House

The Night House boasts the year’s best jump-scare. Better still, it features one of 2021’s finest performances courtesy of Rebecca Hall as a woman whose anguish over her husband’s recent suicide is complicated by unnerving discoveries about the secret life he’d led. Director David Bruckner’s follow-up to The Ritual concerns Beth (Hall), a teacher whose attempts to cope with sudden widowhood are interrupted by strange noises, visions, and clues that suggest her spouse Owen (Evan Jonigkeit) was up to something strange in and around their lakeside home in woodsy upstate New York. The revelations that follow are of a semi-oblique sort, the better to cast an eerie pall that never tips over into exposition-heavy leadenness. Grief and guilt are an identical monster in this disquieting thriller, which gets suspenseful mileage out of shrewd perspective-manipulating imagery and skillful pacing. Most of all, though, it benefits from Hall, whose superb turn as the devastated Beth is equal parts solemn and seething, vulnerable and fierce, unstable and assured.

52) Swimming Out Till the Sea Turns Blue

Jia Zhangke investigates the ongoing transformation of China–and the inextricable relationship between the past and the present, the urban and rural–through the prism of three famed authors in Swimming Out Till the Sea Turns Blue . Guided by interviews with writers Jia Pingwa, Yu Hua, and Liang Hong, each of whom grew up in the same Shanxi province as Jia (albeit in different decades), the director examines the way in which their own travails before, during and after Mao’s Cultural Revolution helped inform their feelings about their fractured families, their remote countryside hometowns, and themselves–pressing and complicated issues they address through their artwork. That they recount their own biographical narratives here only further underlines Jia’s focus on the act of storytelling as a means of understanding, processing, expressing and passing down unique and universal human experiences. Split into chapters and shot with a lyrical focus on contemplative faces and serene, changing landscapes, Jia’s snaking, inquisitive non-fiction work proves a subtle rumination on shifting individual and national Chinese identity.

51) The Power of the Dog

Role-playing is rampant in The Power of the Dog , a Western in which burdens of expectation are almost as deadly as the true selves lurking within. Director Jane Campion’s first feature in a decade is a haunting adaptation of Thomas Savage’s novel about 1925 Montana chaos created by warring visions of masculinity, with demanding and intelligent roughneck cowboy Phil (Benedict Cumberbatch) at odds with his more refined brother George (Jesse Plemons) as well as George’s new bride Rose (Kirsten Dunst) and her effeminate son Peter (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Phil’s fury and cruelty are born from an easily identifiable secret, yet Campion’s film is less about that single mystery than the various ways these figures are governed, hemmed in, and crushed by the demand that they conform to the Old West’s macho and domestic codes of conduct. The relationship between the internal and the external is neither easily struck nor easily understood—a that notion is captivatingly embodied by Cumberbatch as a frontiersman who believes that manly strength is acquired through nastiness and filth, and who pays a terrible price for that misconception.

50) The Lost Daughter

Maggie Gyllenhaal has become a canny chronicler of parental dissatisfaction, and following formidable turns in Sherrybaby , The Kindergarten Teacher and HBO’s The Deuce , she again tackles that topic with her directorial debut The Lost Daughter , an adaptation of Elene Ferrante’s novel of the same name. On a summer vacation on a Greek island, Leda (Olivia Coleman) sits alone on the beach, flirts with a handyman (Ed Harris), and unexpectedly involves herself with a gangster-ish clan after she helps recover the missing daughter of Nina (Dakota Johnson). As divulged by flashbacks to Leda’s younger motherhood (with Jessie Buckley as the twenty-something Coleman), Leda and Nina share similar maternal hang-ups, and the dynamic that develops between the two eventually turns dangerous and traumatic for everyone. At once aloof and imposing, tremulous and blunt, Coleman embodies Leta as a complex mom whose affection for others is dwarfed by her irrepressible love for herself, and Johnson matches her toe-for-toe as the confused and conflicted Nina. Gyllenhaal’s immediate, spiky direction breathes volatile life into this unpredictable drama of clashing instincts.

49) The Killing of Two Lovers

The sound of chopping wood and cocking pistol hammers are incessant in The Killing of Two Lovers –jarring and ominous sonic punctuations that do much to fortify the roiling suspense of writer/director/editor Robert Machoian’s tormented domestic drama. In a barren Utah town where the sky seems to weigh down upon its inhabitants, David (Clayne Crawford) strives to deal with an unwanted separation from his wife Nikki (Sepideh Moafi), who lives in their old home with their four kids, and is sharing a bed with Derek (Chris Coy), much to David’s chagrin. Opening with the sight of David pointing a gun at his wife and her lover in bed, the film proceeds to detail its protagonist’s efforts to mend his marriage while coping with the barely suppressed killing rage ignited by his circumstances. The struggle to keep inner turmoil from begetting external bloodshed is brought to tumultuous life by Crawford, who embodies David empathetically with a hurt, rage, and desperation that’s mesmerizing, as well as by Machoian’s direction, full of long takes and hardscrabble compositions that place an emphasis on anguished faces and interpersonal dynamics.

48) The Last Duel

Ridley Scott’s finest 2021 feature, The Last Duel fashions a real-life tale into a Rashomon -style drama that, it turns out, is less concerned with the unknowability of truth than with history’s habitual negation of female perspectives. Based on Eric Jager’s book, Scott’s 14th-century French story is about the alleged rape of Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer) by Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver), and the efforts of Marguerite’s husband Sir Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon) to bring Jacques to justice for his crime. As written by Nicole Holofcener, Damon and Ben Affleck (who also co-stars, excellently, as the imperiously arrogant Count Pierre d’Alençon), the film is trifurcated to present first Jacques and Jean’s skewed, self-serving versions of events, and then Marguerite’s more genuine POV, which throws the men’s (and era’s) misogynistic attitudes into sharp relief. Scott also makes sure to deliver the warfare goods, both in early battles that demonstrate Jean’s fighting prowess, and in a climactic showdown whose viciousness speaks to the ugly machismo at the heart of this tale.

The giant glowing sun-like orb on stage behind dancer Ema (Mariana Di Girolamo) at the start of Ema could be a symbol of creation or destruction, both of which are pressing undercurrents throughout Pablo Larraín’s scorching drama, which tracks the young title character as she copes with the fallout from her and husband/dance troupe director Gastón’s (Gael Garcia Bernal) decision to give back their adopted son Polo (Cristian Felipe Suare) after the boy nearly incinerated Ema’s sister in a fit of pyromania. Fiery tensions are everywhere in this hypnotic film–be it between love and sex, passion and reason, sanity and madness, or modern art and reggaeton street culture–as Ema reacts to her situation by concocting a scheme to get her child back through carnally devious means. Larraín stages his material like a sweaty, pulsating fever dream-cum-dance-routine, all of it revolving around his alternately entrancing and horrifying protagonist, whose quest for motherhood takes on increasingly demented form. There’s palpable volatility to his study of Di Girolamo’s intriguing Ema, who proves to be a figurative and literal flamethrower.

46) The Sparks Brothers

Not only do you not need to be a fan of Sparks–the L.A.-via-London band led by siblings Russell and Ron Mael–to enjoy The Sparks Brothers ; you don’t even have to know who they are. Edgar Wright’s enthusiastic non-fiction portrait of the group provides a chronological rundown of their unkillable career, which has continued to thrive despite failing to achieve the household-name status that often seemed to be its destiny. Exuberant singer Russell and Hitler-mustached Ron are front-and-center in Wright’s film, providing droll commentary (alongside scores of collaborators and admirers) about their eccentric path, which has included ahead-of-their-time pitstops in pop, electronica, punk and alternative rock (not to mention an abiding love of cinema). Cleverly edited archival-footage montages and diverse animated sequences are instinctively attuned to Sparks’ all-over-the-place wavelength, expressing the joyous anything-goes attitude that has long guided their music. Sparks’ madcap trajectory resembles that of a rollercoaster (apt, given their participation in 1977’s Rollercoaster ), and Wright’s film is a celebration of the enduring vitality of their unique art.

Best New Movies of 2023 Ranked

Welcome to the best new movies of 2023, where you can discover the latest films championed by the critics community! Every movie on the list is Certified Fresh, meaning they held on to a Tomatometer score of at least 75% after a minimum number of critics review — 40 for limited or streaming releases, 80 for wide theatrical releases, with five of those reviews coming from Top Critics.

The year started off strong with successive surprise genre hits in January, like M3GAN (from Blumhouse ), Plane (starring Gerard Butler ), Missing , and Infinity Pool (see the best horror movies of 2023 ). Notably, no wide release in February went Certified Fresh, plus we saw misfires from the normally reliable Steven Soderbergh ( Magic Mike’s Last Dance ) and Marvel Studios ( Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania ). By contrast, almost every week in March saw a new major release hit the Certified Fresh mark, including John Wick: Chapter 4 (starring Keanu Reeves ), Creed III , and Scream VI .

April was showered with inside-baseball basketball drama Air , anime fantasy Suzume , the return of Evil Dead with Rise , YA adaptation Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret , Kelly Richardt’s Showing Up , and The Covenant , Guy Ritchie ‘s best-reviewed movie ever. In May, summer season kicked off with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and while other blockbusters didn’t get as much critical fanfare ( Fast X , The Little Mermaid ), smaller releases like BlackBerry , You Hurt My Feelings , and The Wrath of Becky did.

June took us Across the Spider-Verse , over Asteroid City (with a stopover in Element City ), and into Past Lives . In July, Joy Ride and Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One were a preamble to the dual juggernaut of billion-dollar Barbie and Christopher Nolan ‘s Oppenheimer . A24 also saw renewed horror success with Talk to Me , and then we got a new entry for the best Asian-American movies list with Shortcomings .

The summer closed out with one last superhero gasp, Blue Beetle , before the return of Denzel Washington in September’s The Equalizer 3 . Saw X and A Haunting in Venice surprised by becoming the first Certified Fresh entries in their respective franchises. And Wes Anderson notches two critical winners with the release of Netflix’s The Wonderful World of Henry Sugar , following Asteroid City from June.

The 10 Best Films of 2023

A tumultuous year for Hollywood and a stellar year for cinema

recent movies about hollywood

Cinema continued to wobble back to its feet in 2023: Blockbuster events such as “ Barbenheimer ” proved that audiences had an appetite for more than just superhero movies at the box office, while the rippling effects of the writers’ and actors’ strikes forced Hollywood to examine the unsettling implications of the past decade’s streaming revolution. But as usual, the art form itself didn’t really suffer, especially if you knew where to look, and curating my list of the year’s best films proved extra difficult.

So strong were this year’s offerings that my honorable mentions include excellent films by some of my most-loved auteurs— Ferrari (from Michael Mann), May December (Todd Haynes), The Holdovers (Alexander Payne), and The Killer (David Fincher), all worthy additions to totemic bodies of work. There were wonderfully challenging entries, such as Ari Aster’s unhinged Beau Is Afraid , and Jonathan Glazer’s chilling The Zone of Interest , designed to rattle the viewer in their seat; Bradley Cooper’s Maestro takes the staid biographical film in directions I couldn’t have anticipated, as did Matt Johnson’s winsome Blackberry .

In the end, I opted for a mix of old and new, small and giant, with my apologies to many a runner-up. Here are my 10 favorites of the year, ranging from a modest YouTube documentary to a near-billion-dollar-grossing dramatic extravaganza. The business is still figuring itself out, perhaps, but the medium is as vibrant as ever.

young man and girl sparring

10. Scrapper (directed by Charlotte Regan)

The spirited opening minutes of Scrapper follow 12-year-old Georgie (Lola Campbell) as she tools around East London stealing bikes and dodging social workers, while “Turn the Page,” by the Streets, booms on the soundtrack; I was immediately enthralled. Regan’s debut feature film has an immersive sense of time and place but tells the straightforward story of a girl trying to live independently after the death of her mother. Eventually, a man she’s never met named Jason (Harris Dickinson) appears, saying he’s her father, and Campbell charts the halting partnership that develops between these two people, both living on the fringes of society but quietly craving a sense of stability. It’s a lovely, lively work, funny and touching without feeling remotely miserabilist or patronizing.

Jon Bois

9. The History of the Minnesota Vikings (directed by Jon Bois)

Bois is a sportswriter and video creator at the website SB Nation who has, over the years, evolved from a funny and insightful blogger to one of the most groundbreaking directors in documentary filmmaking. His first true opus, 2019’s The Bob Emergency , explored the decline of athletes named Bob in America; in 2020, he unveiled The History of the Seattle Mariners , an exhaustive look at the baseball team that ran for more than three hours. Though at least twice as long, The History of the Minnesota Vikings does something similar and is just as compelling, investing me in the long history of a team I don’t care about that plays a sport I barely understand. Bois makes sports documentaries that ignore the genre’s tired hallmarks—there are no talking heads, there’s barely any footage from games, and the music is almost entirely bouncy yacht rock. Instead he focuses on hard statistics and idiosyncratic anecdotes, endlessly zooming in and out of a jumble of graphs and charts in ways that shed new light on old, hard facts.

Boy on man's shoulder

8. A Thousand and One (directed by A. V. Rockwell)

Rockwell’s debut feature film, the winner of this year’s dramatic Sundance Grand Jury Prize, is told on a personal scale that befits its small budget. But its story is sprawling, covering many years in the life of Inez (Teyana Taylor) as she struggles to raise her son in Harlem, having abducted him out of the foster-care system after she was released from prison. Their journey begins in the early ’90s, and over the ensuing decade-plus, Rockwell explores the ways New York changed under Rudy Giuliani’s administration, the rise of stop-and-frisk, and how the waves of gentrification broke so unfairly on so many communities. The film is extraordinarily ambitious for a debut, but Rockwell nails the novelistic scope without ever getting lost in her vision, creating a triumph I’ve been thinking about all year, since first seeing it in January.

Cast of film Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves

7. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley)

Truly good blockbusters, when they arrive on our screens, should be heralded and encouraged—big-budget films that care about their characters, put some thought into the visual presentation of their set pieces, and don’t just exist as one link in a long chain of connected intellectual property. Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy action epic that doesn’t mind being funny, but it’s also a comedy that has no problem with jerking a few tears. It’s filled with great, compelling stars, such as Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, and Hugh Grant, who know how to share the screen and never go on autopilot. It’s also told with a genuine love for its source material by Daley and Goldstein, who know that a Dungeons & Dragons story should fizz with improvisational glee, and Honor Among Thieves does exactly that, jumping from plot point to plot point like it’s making everything up as it goes along.

Woman holding sculpture

6. Showing Up (directed by Kelly Reichardt)

Reichardt is the keenest observer of human behavior in cinema today, and her latest effort is a quietly majestic work about an artist who really just needs to take a shower before her gallery show. Reichardt’s frequent collaborator Michelle Williams plays Lizzy, a sculptor working at an art school in Portland, Oregon, who is besieged by too many of life’s minor dramas in a consequential week. As in all of Reichardt’s best movies, so much can be communicated with the littlest sigh or briefest glower; Lizzy’s woes never amount to much beyond niggling family drama and a busted boiler, but the viewer understands how much those minute peaks and valleys can affect the art one puts back into the world.

Two men looking crestfallen at a bar

5. Fallen Leaves (directed by Aki Kaurismäki)

If you’re looking for some belly laughs for the holidays, let me recommend this soft-spoken Finnish comedy about two sad sacks stumbling into love against all odds, set in the shadow of the Russia-Ukraine war. If you’re unfamiliar with the work of Kaurismäki, Finland’s bard of droll melancholy, then Fallen Leaves is a perfect entry point. The film is a great summation of his mordant but quietly optimistic viewpoint, presenting both the dull drudgery of star-crossed lovers Ansa (Alma Pöysti) and Holappa (Jussi Vatanen), and the opportunity their partnership presents for change. This work is a prime example of what makes Kaurismäki so special decades into his career, spinning big laughs and even bigger feelings out of the subtlest interactions.

Scarlett Johansson

4. Asteroid City (directed by Wes Anderson)

The most important work Anderson has produced in a decade, Asteroid City is a soaring exegesis on art as a means of processing loss, heartbreak, and change. It’s also an incredibly funny romantic comedy, a sweet coming-of-age movie, a gentle parody of 1950s method acting, and Anderson’s first straightforward piece of science fiction, with an aesthetic summoned right out of a World’s Fair postcard. Few artists can jumble so many influences together on-screen and have them stand together so casually, but that’s the magic of a great Wes Anderson movie: He makes it look easy, even when you’re thinking about every element for weeks afterward.

Boy with bandage on his face

3. The Boy and the Heron (directed by Hayao Miyazaki)

Whether it ends up being an elegiac farewell to Miyazaki’s storied career or not, The Boy and the Heron is a movie about legacy, and the ways people come to terms with what they’re leaving behind. The film is set in the strange, crumbling dreamscape of World War II–era Japan, navigated by a boy named Mahito Maki (voiced by Soma Santoki), who is mourning the loss of his mother. It’s populated with figures that fans of Miyazaki’s work should be quite familiar with—talking animals, busy old crones, and brassy, adventuresome heroines—but also suffused with bizarre dream logic that’s more abstract and challenging than Miyazaki has attempted before. The Boy and the Heron avoids ever feeling like a greatest-hits reel by exploring quite dark, odd narrative eddies, but its final takeaway is among the most emotionally satisfying the animation master has ever delivered.

Lily Gladstone and Martin Scorcese

2. Killers of the Flower Moon (directed by Martin Scorsese)

Another elegiac work from a master of the form that feels more alive and buzzing with energy than that of filmmakers half his age, Scorsese’s roundabout adaptation of David Grann’s nonfiction work puts the viewer in uncomfortable shoes from minute one. Our protagonist is Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio), a World War I veteran returning to Oklahoma to work for his glad-handing uncle William Hale (Robert De Niro), and the early portion of the film depicts his whirlwind romance with an Osage woman named Mollie (Lily Gladstone). A creeping dread follows Ernest, and this partnership, and Scorsese consistently challenges the audience’s preconceived notions about whom to root for, as it becomes clearer and clearer that William and Ernest are part of a brutal conspiracy to rob Mollie and the Osage of their wealth. It’s a compelling piece of true crime, but as cinema it’s also a brutal undercutting of the entire idea of the Western, of the romantic white cowboy heroes riding out to claim their destiny in land that was never their own.

Oppenheimer raising up his hat

1. Oppenheimer (directed by Christopher Nolan)

This summer, a three-hour epic about the birth of the atomic bomb and its terrible legacy became one of the year’s biggest hits, making a compelling case that people will go to theaters to see movies that actively challenge them. Oppenheimer might be Nolan’s best work yet; though he’s worked on bigger scales, his task here was to somehow translate the private life of an inscrutable scientific icon into a blockbuster told at breakneck pace. Oppenheimer is largely set in offices, lecture halls, and courtrooms, and its protagonist, played by Cillian Murphy, is a maddeningly opaque figure only vaguely able to reckon with the horrors he unleashed on a modern world. That all of this coalesces into the most thrilling movie of the year still feels like a miracle.

'Wonka,' 'The Color Purple' and 'Aquaman': Warner Bros. releases dominate December


  • The last weeks of the 2023 box office will be dominated by Warner Bros. Discovery releases.
  • The studio is capping off the year with three blockbuster features — "Wonka," "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" and "The Color Purple."
  • Box-office analysts are also keeping a keen eye on Universal's new animated film "Migration."

In this article

LOS ANGELES — There are just a few weeks left at the 2023 box office, and they'll be dominated by movies from Warner Bros .

The studio is capping off the year with three big features — "Wonka," "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" and "The Color Purple" — although it's unclear whether any or all of them will be hits.

December is a crucial time for the domestic box office. In the five years before the pandemic, the month accounted for more than $1 billion in ticket sales, according to data from Comscore. While December 2021 nearly hit this mark, aided by the release of "Spider-Man: No Way Home" from Sony and Disney , December 2022 tallied less than $700 million.

Overall, the 2023 box office lags around 19% compared with 2019, standing at $8.3 billion as of Dec. 3. Box-office analysts are hopeful that it could reach $9 billion before the end of the year.

After all, with the weekend release of Beyonce's "Renaissance" tour film as well as continued ticket sales from Lionsgate's "Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes," Universal's "Trolls Band Together" and Disney's "Wish," the domestic box office generated nearly $100 million in the first three days of December, according to Comscore data.

  • Dec. 8 — "The Boy and the Heron" (GKIDS)
  • Dec. 15 — "Wonka" (Warner Bros. Discovery)
  • Dec. 22 — "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" (Warner Bros. Discovery)
  • Dec. 22 — "Migration" (Universal)
  • Dec. 22 — "Anyone But You" (Sony)
  • Dec. 22 — "The Iron Claw" (A24)
  • Dec. 22 — "American Fiction" (Amazon-MGM)
  • Dec. 25 — "The Color Purple" (Warner Bros. Discovery)
  • Dec. 25 — "Ferrari" (Neon)
  • Dec. 25 — "The Boys in the Boat" (Amazon-MGM)

"Like so many sporting events, contests of skill or the proverbial horse race, the outcome of any given box office year often comes down to the final moments," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. "This year, December is particularly important in terms of the high-profile lineup of films on the calendar on which the full weight of a less than stellar month of November and a rather slow Thanksgiving [rests]."

Warner Bros. releases will have a lot to say about whether December will ring up big bucks. The studio has already provided the 2023 box office with the billion-dollar global hit "Barbie," and its three December releases are expected to offer the biggest box-office punch alongside Universal and Illumination's animated feature "Migration."

Warner Bros. Discovery is still evolving after WarnerMedia and Discovery merged only last year . Chief Executive David Zaslav has been working to pay down debt while building up free cash flow in order to set up potential acquisitions of smaller studios. Part of that cost-cutting started early in the new company's history with the axing of "Batgirl" and "Scoob! Holiday Haunt" before their releases and the cancellation of more than a dozen TV shows set for its streaming service.

Shares of the company are up 15% year to date through Wednesday.

Both "Wonka" and "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" are expected to generate between $32 million and $42 million during their openings, according to "The Color Purple" is set for at least a $13 million debut. ("Migration" is forecast to tally between $20 million and $30 million.)

Expectations are high that "Wonka" will deliver families to theaters, as the musical prequel has already generated goodwill with critics, scoring a clear "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. And "The Color Purple," also a musical, could lure in a more mature crowd, given the movie's literary and theatrical pedigree.

The king of Atlantis vs. a family of ducks

It's Warner Bros.' "Aquaman" sequel that is most worrisome to box-office analysts. Audiences have been lackluster on superhero flicks this year, with Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe posting its worst-ever opening weekend in its history with "The Marvels." The film has generated less than $200 million globally since its Nov. 10 release through the weekend, another low point for the MCU.

DC has faced deeper difficulties at the box office compared with rival Marvel. "Shazam: Fury of the Gods" and "Blue Beetle" both tallied less than $150 million during their global run in theaters this year, and "The Flash" secured less than $275 million worldwide.

"The DC brand, in particular, is very challenged after three middling-to-soft performances already this year and a general aura of limbo among fans knowing that the franchise is effectively getting a soft reboot in 2025," said Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at "I'm very cautious on 'Aquaman' projections under those circumstances."

The new "Aquaman" film has a lot to live up to, as well. The first film, released back in 2018, generated more than $1 billion at the global box office, making it the highest-grossing film in the DC Extended Universe franchise. Much of the interest from fans came following the 2017 release of "Justice League," as moviegoers expected "Aquaman" to launch the franchise forward.

The majority of its ticket sales were international, including nearly $300 million from the China region alone. Domestic ticket sales were just 30%, or $335 million, of the movie's total global box office, according to Comscore.

The new "Aquaman" will also be released in China. But non-Chinese movies have not seen the same benefit in China as in the pre-pandemic years.

While Disney and 20th Century's "Avatar: The Way of Water" secured $245 million in China, American superhero flicks have failed to drum up interest in the country in the last year. Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" generated only $40 million in ticket sales, DC's "The Flash" took in just $25 million from the region, and the MCU's "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" grabbed just $15 million. "Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3" grossed $86 million in China.

"Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" also faces an uphill battle because of comments from the new co-head of DC Studios, James Gunn. He effectively said the remaining films in the DCEU, including the "Aquaman" sequel, will have no connection to future projects from the studio. Thus, fans have one less reason to head out to cinemas.

The other wild card is Universal's "Migration," a comedy about a family of ducks that opens the same day as the new "Aquaman."

The Comcast-owned studio has flourished at the box office in recent years with its animated fare from its Illumination and DreamWorks animation arms. "Minions: The Rise of Gru," "The Super Mario Bros. Movie" and "Trolls Band Together" have delivered strong ticket sales in the wake of the pandemic. Of course, all those films are tied to existing intellectual property.

"Migration" is an original story, but if it's well-received it could spark its own franchise for the studio.

"No original animated movie has reached the kind of mega-blockbuster numbers of 'Mario' or 'Minions' during the post-pandemic era yet," Robbins noted. "That fact alone makes it difficult to project what kind of ceiling 'Migration' may or may not have in the wake of films like Disney's 'Wish' and Pixar's 'Elemental' this year."

Yet few would count out Universal to be the studio to achieve such a feat, especially since the movie will open as kids begin their holiday school breaks.

"As the only major animated film opening in theaters later this month, though, there is certainly a path to success," Robbins added. "If any studio can break the trend and capture wide family audience appeal with an original animated flick right now, it's Illumination."

Disclosure: Comcast is the parent company of NBCUniversal and CNBC. NBCUniversal is the distributor of "Migration," "Minions: The Rise of Gru," "Trolls Band Together" and "The Super Mario Bros. Movie." NBCUniversal also owns Rotten Tomatoes.

Stream These Ryan O’Neal Movies

The actor became one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood, and proved himself equally adept at drama, comedy and action.

  • Share full article

A man and woman in brown coats sit in a convertible car on an autumn day.

By Jason Bailey

Ryan O’Neal’s death Friday at the age of 82 followed decades in which the actor was better known for his personal life (and struggles) than for his work. But few stars shone brighter in the 1970s, when O’Neal — originally known for his role on the prime-time soap opera “Peyton Place” — became one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood, and proved himself equally adept at drama, comedy and action. Here are a few of his finest films from that period, and where to stream them.

‘Love Story’ (1970)

Rent or buy it on major streaming platforms.

Television-to-film crossovers were rare in the 1970s, and O’Neal only landed the role of Oliver Barrett IV, a Harvard blue-blood who falls in love with a working-class Radcliffe girl, after several bigger names had passed, and at the insistence of the screenwriter Erich Segal and O’Neal’s co-star, Ali McGraw. It’s easy to see why she fought for him; their chemistry is sweet but potent, and carries this lightweight story of young romance and terminal illness above its corny, weepy components. It became the highest-grossing movie of 1970. Critics were mostly unimpressed but The Times’s Vincent Canby praised O’Neal as “an intense, sensitive young man whose handsomeness has a sort of crookedness to it.” That’s an apt summary of not only O’Neal’s performance here, but also his entire appeal.

‘What’s Up, Doc’ (1972) / ‘The Main Event’ (1979)

Stream “What’s Up Doc” on Max. Rent or buy “The Main Event” on major streaming platforms.

After the smashing success of “Love Story,” O’Neal teamed up with the director Peter Bogdanovich (himself white-hot off the success of “The Last Picture Show”) for the first of three memorable collaborations. “What’s Up, Doc?” paired O’Neal with Barbra Streisand in a rollicking homage to the screwball comedies of the ’30s and ’40s — specifically the Cary Grant-Katharine Hepburn team-up “Bringing Up Baby,” from which Bogdanovich lifted the central dynamic of, in his words , “an uptight professor and a screwy girl.” It was the perfect vehicle to showcase O’Neal’s range; his turn as the musicologist Dr. Howard Bannister was 180 degrees from Oliver Barrett IV, a study in frenetic farce that somehow never crosses the line from cartoony to caricature. His chemistry with Streisand was so potent that they reunited seven years later for the boxing rom-com “The Main Event,” and while its director Howard Zieff proved to be no Bogdanovich, the reunion affirmed that O’Neal’s skills as a light screen comedian were all but unmatched in the era.

‘Paper Moon’ (1973) / ‘Nickelodeon’ (1976)

Stream “Paper Moon” on Max. Rent or buy “Nickelodeon” on major streaming platforms .

In the meantime, Bogdanovich and O’Neal followed “What’s Up, Doc?” with this adaptation of the novel “Addie Pray,” about a con man crossing Kansas selling Bibles to widows, with his precocious maybe-daughter in tow. Bogdanovich cast O’Neal’s real-life offspring Tatum in the latter role, masterfully capitalizing on their built-in rhythms and spiky relationship; they’re wonderful together, and it’s a joy to watch O’Neal’s gleefully amoral swindler begin to begrudgingly care for the smart-mouthed kid. (Tatum would win the Academy Award for best supporting actress for the role — at 10 years old, the youngest winner of a competitive Oscar to date.) Three years later, Bogdanovich and O’Neal teamed up for the last time to make “Nickelodeon,” an affectionate valentine to the earliest years of Hollywood, inspired by Bogdanovich’s interviews with the legends of the silent era. It was not as well-received as their earlier pictures, but it remains a delightful mash-up of film history and slapstick comedy, with a charmingly seat-of-his-pants turn by O’Neal as an incompetent lawyer who stumbles into a career as a screenwriter and film director.

‘Barry Lyndon’ (1975)

Rent or buy it on major platforms.

Some cynics were skeptical of Stanley Kubrick’s decision to cast the decidedly 20th-century O’Neal in the title role of his adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s 18th-century-set novel. But Kubrick, as usual, saw something more in O’Neal — or perhaps he saw the link between his “Paper Moon” con man and the title character, a social-climbing rogue who uses his good looks to marry into considerable money. The actor’s razor-sharp comic timing was rarely so elegantly deployed, and he clearly relished the opportunity to turn his matinee-idol image on its head, deftly conveying a character ultimately undone by his own moral rot.

‘A Bridge Too Far’ (1977)

Rent or buy it on most major platforms.

For his dramatization of the failed Operation Market Garden during World War II, the director Richard Attenborough gathered an eye-popping, all-star cast that included James Caan, Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Elliott Gould, Anthony Hopkins, Gene Hackman, Laurence Olivier, Robert Redford and Liv Ullman. That’s not an easy group to make an impression in, but O’Neal pulls it off. As Gen. James M. Gavin, one of the leaders of the American faction of the Allied operation, O’Neal takes a direct approach to the material, eschewing the theatrics of many castmates and honing in on Gavin’s straight-shooting style and somewhat cynical worldview.

‘Tough Guys Don’t Dance’ (1987)

Stream it on Amazon Prime Video.

As the ’70s rolled into the ’80s, O’Neal’s commercial successes grew more rare, and he found himself fronting fewer big movies — so he made his leading roles count. One of the strangest was this bleakly funny riff on hard-boiled crime noir, written and directed by Norman Mailer (adapting his own novel). “Tough Guys” is notorious in some circles for an out-of-context moment that went quite viral (a take that O’Neal reportedly begged Mailer not to use), but that grand, oddly melodramatic moment is indicative of the wild tonal ride that is “Tough Guys,” which feels like the bastard child of David Lynch, Douglas Sirk, Dashiell Hammett, and Mailer in the midst of a particularly rough hangover. O’Neal ends up being the steadying force of this unorthodox stew, and his grounded performance frequently keeps the picture from floating off into the ether.

‘Zero Effect’ (1998)

Rent or buy it on major platforms .

In the ’90s and through to the end of his life, O’Neal’s acting was increasingly consigned to television work and small supporting roles. But he turned out to be a fine character actor as well, and one of the best films of that period is this clever, melancholy mash-up of comedy, drama and mystery from the writer-director Jake Kasdan. Bill Pullman plays Daryl Zero, “the world’s most private detective,” a brilliant but reclusive Sherlock Holmes type; Ben Stiller is the Watson to his Holmes. O’Neal turns up as Gregory Stark, a millionaire who hires Zero to find the key to his safe deposit box. As is customary for such characters, there’s more to this man than meets the eye, and O’Neal bracingly does what only the best actors can do: he projects furtiveness, while seeming to have nothing to hide. That duality and complexity was part of what made him such a special and distinctive screen presence for so long.

Timothee chalamet says he was worried ‘wonka’ might be a “cynical money grab”.

Timothée Chalamet

Timothée Chalamet has revealed that he was initially a bit skeptical that Wonka was a “cynical money grab” amid the recent reboot trend in Hollywood.

The actor, who plays the legendary chocolatier, recently spoke with GamesRadar+ about the movie musical, which focuses on a young Willy Wonka and how he came to meet the Oompa Loompas on one of his earliest adventures.

Are studios shy to market musicals as ... musicals, 'wonka' review: timothée chalamet sings, dances and gets gooey in cloying musical prequel.

But once he read the first three pages of the script, the Dune star knew the Paul King -directed movie was something special on its own.

“The song ‘Hat Full of Dreams’ was in there,” he said, referring to the film’s opening musical number. “And there was no music to accompany it, but the lyrics were so clever. [It’s] about this young Willy, who was definitively not the crazy, cynical, kind of jaded, brain-fried version that we see in the two prior films but was very hopeful, young, ambitious, won’t-take-no-for-an-answer, maybe a little naive. I think that’s very clever.”

King previously told Rolling Stone that Chalamet didn’t have to audition for the role of Willy Wonka because “he was the only person in my mind who could do it.” Now, the Lady Bird actor also admitted that he wasn’t necessarily looking for an all-singing, all-dancing role at the time.

“I love musical theater and I love song and dance,” Chalamet explained. “And I love old Fred Astaire movies and the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder. I didn’t think I’d get a chance to do it, not like this. But Paul King is one of these directors that you don’t say no to.”

Wonka hits theaters Dec. 15.
