Every new year brings with it the promise of a fresh slate of new movies. To help keep track of what comes out when, I’ve put together this lovely little post, which calendars the biggest projects hitting screens of all size in 2022. Of course, with the pandemic, nothing is a guarantee. That in mind, any of the scheduled release dates could change at any time. In fact, Jared Leto’s Morbius was recently pushed from late January 2022 to early April; a change I had to make before posting this article. Anyway, I hope you find this useful when trying to keep track of what’s coming this year. Enjoy!
