The reimagined Spielberg-directed remake of the 1961 classic West Side Story releases in theaters on December 10. Newcomer Rachel Zegler leads the cast as Maria, and Ansel Elgort plays Tony. Early reviews are very favorable, with Rotten Tomatoes giving it a 97% approval rating.

Another highly anticipated film coming out the same day is Netflix’s Don’t Look Up. The A-List cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Ariana Grande, and many more big names. It is a science fiction comedy following two astronomers (Lawrence and DiCaprio) trying to warn against a giant meteor which would destroy the earth. 

Possibly the most anticipated film of the year, Spiderman: No Way Home,  is set to release on December 17, 2021. It stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Marisa Tomei. Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx, and Willem Defoe, from the earlier Spiderman franchises also star. Rumor has it that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will also make an appearance, but both actors have continuously denied it. 

The fifth installment in the Scream franchise is set to release on January 14, 2022. Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox all return for this horror film, alongside Jenna Ortega, Mellisa Barrera, and Mason Gooding. Death on the Nile, based on the 1937 novel, will be released on February 11, 2022. It features Kenneth Branagh, Russell Brand, Gal Gadot, Emma Mackey, and many more.
