Movies We Can’t Wait to See This Spring

n 2022, moviegoing in theaters got off to a slow but promising start. Spider-Man: No Way Home, a late-2021 picture, has been ruling the US box office until recently, when The Batman overtook it, with Uncharted coming in third. Scream and Sing 2 rounds out the top five, with a few low-budget hits and a few higher-budget flops.   With the Oscars just around the corner, the movie industry is just getting started: Tom Cruise, Sandra Bullock, and Nicole Kidman will all be back on the big screen in the next two and a half months. Even Cannes, which takes place in late May, is promising an A-list roster. We could be getting Palais premieres from Baz Luhrmann, David Cronenberg, Alejandro González Iñárritu, or even Claire Denis.   Everything Everywhere All at Once (In theaters March 25) Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert's latest sci-fi action picture appears to be as wonderfully off-kilter as their 2016 first, Swiss Army Man. Evelyn Wang, played by Michelle Yeoh, is a seemingly ordinary woman with a husband, children, and a family company who discovers she exists in limitless universes. The teaser for the flick promises a lot of action.   “Don’t make me fight you — I am really good!” Evelyn says, and Yeoh has never been wrong about that.    The Lost City  (In theaters March 25) Aaron and Adam Nee, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Oren Uziel and Dana Fox, directed this action-adventure comedy picture based on a story by Seth Gordon. The plot-filled The Lost City, starring Sandra Bullock as a reclusive romance writer who becomes entangled with her books' cover model (Channing Tatum) when they are kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe), might go either way.   Cheaper by the Dozen (on Disney+ March 18) This family-comedy is a remake of the same-named 1950 and 2003 films, which were inspired by the real-life Gilbreth family and the semi-autobiographical description of their lives published by Frank Bunker Gilbreth Jr. and his sister Ernestine Gilbreth Carey in the 1948 novel Cheaper by the Dozen. Gail Lerner makes her feature-length directing debut with this picture, which was co-written by Kenya Barris and Jenifer Rice-Genzuk Henry.   Aline (In theaters April 8)  Valérie Lemercier directed this French-Canadian drama film, which will be released in April 2022. The film stars Lemercier as "Aline Dieu," a Canadian singer who climbs to international superstardom in a fictionalized version of Céline Dion's life.The delightfully zany, unashamedly affectionate film is possibly the only way to convey Dion's life, as it resonates on the same frequency as the famously strange French Canadian chanteuse.   The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (In theaters April 22) Nicolas Cage takes on his most demanding role to date in this meta-narrative action-adventure comedy: Nicolas Cage. Nicolas Cage isn't just any Nicolas Cage. Nic Cage, who is cash-strapped and creatively unfulfilled, accepts a $1 million offer to attend the birthday celebration of a millionaire drug lord (Pedro Pascal) in Spain. But, according to the official synopsis, things go weird when this highly stylized version of the renowned actor is recruited by a CIA operative (Tiffany Haddish) and is compelled to channel his "most iconic and adored on-screen characters in order to save himself and his loved ones."   Memory  (In theaters April 22) Liam Neeson's recent flicks haven't been his greatest, to be sure. The Protégé, directed by Martin Campbell and set for release in 2021, was a letdown. However, the prospect of these two — our leading sad-dad action hero and the filmmaker of such classics as Casino Royale, GoldenEye, and The Mask of Zorro — collaborating on a remake of the 2003 Belgian assassin-on-the-run thriller The Memory of a Killer is extremely exciting. Even when his parts appear to be beneath him, Campbell remains an action maestro, and Neeson still delivers a lot of poignancy to his parts. Oh, and it also stars Monica Bellucci and Guy Pearce.   Top Gun: Maverick  (In theaters May 27)  This summer is rumored to be the release date for the long-awaited Top Gun sequel, which was originally set for a 2019 release but was postponed five times due to the pandemic. As we are to see Tom Cruise reprising his role as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, we won't think this film is genuine until we're on the highway to the danger zone.
