It can’t get better than this
Consider this the film’s industry attempt at saying: Wait! Before you treat 2022 as done (since we are nearing the end of it), know that the popcorn stands and movie theaters remain open for us all. There are international and local films that are just about to hit theaters. We still have some titles we’re keeping our eyes on, here are five of the top movies for 2022 you still need to catch.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
The Marvel Cinematic Universe pays homage to the late Chadwick Boseman—who starred as King T’Challa—with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. As Wakanda awaits the threats of world powers from the death of King T’Challa, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) and Shuri (Letitia Wright) pave their nation’s future through the help of M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the all-female special forces Dora Milaje.
Bones and All
Bones and All follows the romance between Maren (Taylor Russell) and Lee (Timothée Chalamet), who are young cannibals who travel 3,000 miles across the backroads of America despite their differences. The odyssey encourages their dark pasts to come out of the shadows, until the two lovers see themselves even farther apart from each other.
Avatar: The Way of Water
Thirteen years after the first movie was released, Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri Sully (Zoë Saldaña) return in Avatar: The Way of Water with another epic wave of adventures. The couple explores the dystopian world of Pandora and battles against humans to break a curse on their beloved children.
An Inconvenient Love
Ayef (Belle Mariano) has her priorities straight. She wants to follow her dreams of becoming an animator, putting true love in the backseat. A month before she flies to Singapore, Manny (Donny Pangilinan) offers her a deal to be in a “convenient” romantic relationship with him until she leaves.
Deleter unfolds with the story of Lyra (Nadine Lustre), whose office work requires her to filter disturbing graphic uploads online. Her cold and null façade might convince her co-workers that her responsibilities leave her intact, but her trauma crawls back as if she’s never escaped from it.
