With theaters reopening this late in the year, we can still catch some of the year’s most anticipated flicks, such as Wonder Woman 1984 and News of the World, in CinemaSafe theaters across America.
Despite the pandemic, producers and the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO) decided to bring the movies back to life. Having devised a system that made theaters as safe as possible from COVID-19, movie outfits started to roll out movies. With the help of a digital marketing agency and NATO, a movie production outfit can now restart its operations, slowly easing into what was once normal. And movie buffs are never happier.
We have listed some of the movies that geeks are excited to see in theaters in the winter and spring of 2021

Release Date: March 19, 2021
Cast: Jared Leto, Jared Harris, Adria Arjona, Tyrese Gibson, Matt Smith
Coming out with a solo movie for a Spider-Man villain is already a risky move as it is for Marvel Studios, but having Jared Leto, who caught a lot of flack for his Joker portrayal in Suicide Squad, playing the titular character has upped the ante. But knowing Marvel Studios, we can bet that they know what they’re doing. We’ll have to wait and see.
5. Tomb Raider 2
Release Date: March 19, 2021
Cast: Alicia Vickander
After the lukewarm reception to 2018’s Tomb Raider, Oscar-winner Alicia Vickander is back in a sequel hoping to redeem the franchise. No other details were provided at the time, but as fans of Lara Croft, we’re hoping she kicks butt at the box office this time.
Release Date: April 2, 2021

It’s been a long time coming, but finally, Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a Black Widow, will have her own solo movie.
