A Release Date Guide for Every 2022 Film

by Andrew J. Salazar
A collage of the biggest remaining 2022 movies of the year including GLASS ONION, BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER, AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER, DEVOTION, BLACK ADAM, BLONDE, and STRANGE WORLD.

2022 is shaping up to be the most jam-packed year for film that we’ve seen in some time. Rollover from the ongoing pandemic is one of the biggest reasons why. Some long-awaited fan favorites, such as The Batman and Jurassic World Dominion, will finally have their time to shine after numerous delays. Joining them will be more heavy hitters expected to smash new box office records. We’re of course talking about the highly anticipated sequels Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Avatar: The Way of Water. But just like any year, cinema’s offerings are incredibly varied in genre and size.

Horror lovers can look forward to new chapters in the Scream and Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchises, as well as Jordan Peele’s next original film Nope. Fans of high-stake action and adventure have Uncharted, Top Gun: Maverick, and Bullet Train to be excited for. Animation is also in no shortage with two new films from Pixar, Turning Red and Lightyear, along with Puss in Boots: The Last Wish and The Bad Guys from DreamWorks. And if it wasn’t already obvious, 2022 will be yet another massive year for comic-book films. This year’s lineup from Marvel, DC, and beyond, is nothing short of spectacular.

As always, DiscussingFilm provides a release date guide for every 2022 film for your convenience. This page will be updated frequently with new releases and date changes as soon as they’re announced. The theatrical landscape is still adapting and shifting in the face of COVID, so only time will tell how this list will look throughout the year. When checking the guide, you’ll see which films are debuting on which streaming services as indicated. All theatrical titles are released nationwide in 2022 unless labeled LIMITED, which means fewer theaters but VOD may be available simultaneously – make sure to double-check your options as they vary per film.
