Cinema is back in action — and theaters.

As the COVID-19 pandemic slows in 2022, we can’t help but look ahead to the new films arriving on the big screen from Steven Spielberg, Terence Malick, Damien Chazelle, Jordan Peele, Kasi Lemmons, Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, and even Michael Bay.

While some of these upcoming titles have confirmed release dates, others are still kept under wraps pending COVID precautions, or are in post-production as of February. No matter, film’s favorite auteurs are ready to launch new projects with the new year. Olivia Wilde’s “Don’t Worry Darling” is set for prime fall festival season with a September 23 premiere, while Robert Eggers’ Viking drama “The Northman” sets sail April 22.
