2020 has not been so awesome for movies so far, and who knows what will happen for the rest of the year. So here’s the news – 2020 has got some real excellent movies lined up for you.
Welcome to Watch Tank, and today we will take a look at 5 movies that are going to blow you away in 2020.
5. Project Power
We all love superheroes. Who wouldn’t want to be one? Directed by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, the movie tells us precisely that; what consequences will happen when everyone has their own superpowers. A group created a pill that infuses the consuming person with random superpowers, but only for five minutes. In the streets of New Orleans, things are startingto go haywire when people are up to no good after gaining these powers.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Lewitt, Jamie Foxx and, , also starring rapper Machine Gun Kelly, the movie’s storyline is not conventional by any means.
The movie is about a policeman and a teenage girl, who are set on a mission to track down those who have invented and distributed the pill. While tackling the mutated, so-called superheroes, the team must do its best to catch up with them, which is not easy considering that theyare more capable and powerful than they are.
No wonder; as a result, the cop, played by Joseph Gordon Lewitt, has to eat one and be one, in order to beat them at their own game.
What’s unique about this movie is the innovative plot that aims to remove the X-Men-like storytelling. Instead, it creates instant superheroes who want to wreak havoc in our lives and then ordinary men, who want to fight these superheroes, but are forced to become one of them in order to do so.
‘Project Power” is set to be released on 14th August on Netflix(if it was released, should change to “was released”), and speculated to be one of the most awesome Jamie Fox movies on Netflix.
This action flick has the sexy Megan Fox as its lead protagonist. Directed by Michael J. Bassett, the movie is about a dangerous mission led by mercenary O’Hara, played by Megan, to save hostages held in a remote part of Africa. O’Hara leads a group of mercenaries, battle-hardened, lively and willing to lay down their lives. The team is sure that they are going to make it within the deadline. However, things go down south as the enemy is better prepared, and the team finds itself in a difficult situation. Stranded in the middle of nowhere, now O’Hara must make sure that she is able to rescue her team from the brutal and merciless and ravenous rebels. It’s not just the human enemies they have to fight, but also a pride of hungry lions that have been set on them by the rebels.
The unique aspect that the movie offers is how Megan Fox took a 180 degree turn from the typical roles that she has played in the past. Whereas she formerly acted as the hot bombshell in the Transformers franchise, you will now get to see Megan in an entirely new Avatar., From the preview
trailers, it seems that Megan has worked hard to take on this role. . But Megan being Megan, she still maintains the kind of appeal she has always had.
As for the movie, it doesn’t look like your average action movie, at least if we are going to go by the teasers. The film is set to be released on 28th August. (if it was released, then changed to “was released”)
3. New Mutants
Whenever we talk about mutants, we think of the X-Men franchise. However, director Josh Boone has taken a couple of steps ahead to creat a movie that shows the huge minus side of being a mutant.
The New Mutants movie tells the story of a couple of teenage mutants who have just discovered their powers, and are all set to use them as they wish. However, they have been held in a facility that has been designed especially for new mutants.
However, this is not some Xavier mansion that will help them control and nurture their superpowers. This is where the real danger begins. The teenage mutants who have been captured inside the mansion are held in by a force field, so that they are not able to escape.
Soon, they begin to face entities that have their mutant powers, but are also non-human. If we are going to go by the IMDB, the storyline declares that the teenage mutants have committed some past wrongs and that they are going to face up to the consequences in the mansion.
This Marvel horror movie is unique in its story and the way it has been delivered, as seen by the trailers. Here, they have combined the elements of a thrilling horror film where a bunch of victims are followed and tormented by some vengeful spirit or demon on the one hand, and being mutants with superpowers, fighting an enemy that is almost like them on the other hand.
The movie will be released in theaters on 28th August this year.(If it was released, then change to “was released”)
Urban legends have always been a part of American folklore. Jason Voorhees and Freddie, for example, have been the notable slashers have killed and terrorized many in their respective neighborhoods. The Candyman 2020 is about one such urban legend.
However, now we are introduced to the concept of the Candyman, who is, what we can say, a cross between the legend of Bloody Marry and Freddie. Look at your reflection into the mirror and utter the word ‘Candyman’ 5 times and death will certainly come to you in one of the most brutal and painful ways.
The film tells a story of Candyman as a sequel to the 1992 film, where a couple, Anthony McCoy, a visual artist (played by Yahya Abdul Mateen – II) and Brianna Cartwright, an art studio owner (played by Teyonah Parris) move into a gentrified Chicago neighborhood. Here, Anthony starts becoming interested in the legend of Candyman.
To spread awareness among the folks, as what he believes he is doing, he paints various pictures of Candyman and installs the canvas drawings in the art gallery.
So call it daring or plain stupidity, he encourages visitors to his studio to utter the words ‘Candyman’ in the installed mirror five times. This leads to a series of gruesome deaths in the city, as a result of the people who uttered the word.
The movie’s concept doesn’t seem to be very unique; however, no comment can be made about the plot as of now.
The movie is set to be released on 16th October 2020 by Universal Pictures.
Who do you think is the scariest urban legend? Let us know in the comment section.
1. No Time to Die
Finally comes the number 1, not just in the list, but also in overall audience experience. No Time to Die is a James Bond action flick, which looks like more kickass and awesome than its predecessors.
After completing all his missions, Agent 007 is no longer working and has left his active service at MI-6. However, Feliz Leiter, a CIA agent and 007’s friend, approaches him and confides him about the abduction of a scientist, Valdo Obruchev.
On his way to saving the scientist, he encounters threats and dangers that he didn’t even think of, and neither has he experienced. Now James Bond must make a choice and understand that if he is to go for the good fight, he will have to contend with many entities that are hell-bent on creating havoc.
The prima facie impression that director Cary Joji Fukunaga’s film leaves you is a uniquely kickass action flick that outmanoeuvres its predecessors significantly.
For those who are not great fans of any Bond movies, we suggest to have a look at the trailers and then make up your minds. The new Bond film is genuinely an adrenaline-pumping super action-thriller and will make you love the James Bond franchise. For those who are already in love with the movie series, we would say this movie will bring out something new for you to experience.
