You'd be forgiven for thinking the cinema listings would be looking a little threadbare this year. As you'll see from our collection of movie release dates still to look forward to in 2021, that's not even remotely close to being the case.

Long-awaited blockbusters such as Dune and The Matrix 4 are set to make their bow, while there are still superheroes aplenty for the spandex-addicted among us: Spider-Man 3, Black Widow, and The Suicide Squad all make their homes in theaters in the next six months.

Then, there are those existing just on the periphery, yet still offering no less compelling reasons to return to the cinema when you feel safe to do so. The Many Saints of Newark, Last Night in Soho, and Candyman should all rank highly on your watchlists.

From June to December, there are several movie release dates you just have to pencil in, and we've listed them all here. So grab your popcorn and get scrolling. It's time to start planning to go to the movies again.

And if this wasn't enough, check out our guides to all the new superhero movies on the way, as well as the upcoming Star Wars movies.

I'm the Entertainment Writer here at GamesRadar+, focusing on news, features, and interviews with some of the biggest names in film and TV. On-site, you'll find me marveling at Marvel and providing analysis and room temperature takes on the newest films, Star Wars and, of course, anime. Outside of GR, I love getting lost in a good 100-hour JRPG, Warzone, and kicking back on the (virtual) field with Football Manager. My work has also been featured in OPM, FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution.
