Are you excited to know which most anticipated movie release in 2024’s first half. Then you are at the right place, in this article, we will discuss the Top 10 Best Upcoming Anticipated Movies of 2024. And we will also take a look at the release date and cast of all those movies.

Let’s see which best movie is going to be released after February in the first half of 2024.

10. Bad Boys 4 (2024)

Release Date: June 14, 2024

Cast: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence

Directed by: Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah

If the third film in the Bad Boys trilogy had a different title, this fourth edition could have easily been titled Bad Boys for Life. But that’s not how reality works. For now, we’ll refer to this as Bad Boys 4, in which detectives Mike Lowery (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) rejoin for another explosive action adventure.

9. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (2024)

Release Date: May 24, 2024

Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Burke, Nathan Jones, and Angus Sampson

Directed by: George Miller

Anya Taylor-Joy will play a younger version of the war rig-driving badass Imperator Furiosa in this prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road, one of the best films of the century thus far. George Miller will helm once more, and Chris Hemsworth will co-star in the film, which follows Furiosa’s captivity and ascension through Immortan Joe’s ranks.

8. Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire (2024)

Release Date: March 22, 2024

Cast: Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd, McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt

Directed by: Gil Kenan

There isn’t much-verified information concerning this sequel, except that director Jason Reitman was replaced by Gil Kenan (Monster House, Poltergeist 2015), who co-wrote Afterlife. We also know that Carrie Coon, McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, and Paul Rudd will return, along with Kumail Nanjiani and Patton Oswalt. Finally, we know that the film will be set in New York and will have the firehouse from the original movie, as teased at the end of Afterlife.

7. The Fall Guy (2024)

Release Date: May 3, 2024

Cast: Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt

Directed by: David Leitch

Is there a better action director than David Leitch nowadays? Leitch, a former stuntman who has directed John Wick, Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, and Hobbs & Shaw, is working on a film adaptation of an 80s TV show about a stuntman who moonlights as a bounty hunter. This sounds totally up his alley. Ryan Gosling will play the lead with Emily Blunt.

6. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (2024)

Release Date: May 10, 2024

Cast: Owen Teague, Freya Allan, Peter Macon, Eka Darville, and Kevin Durand

Directed by: Wes Ball

Caesar, the chimp that led the apes to global dominance, perished at the end of 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes, the third installment of the iconic sci-fi franchise’s remake trilogy. However, there is more monkey business to be done. (Yes, apes and monkeys differ, but let us have this.) Wes Ball, who directed the Maze Runner films, directs the fourth installment in the series, set many years after the events of War.

5. Road House (2024)

Release Date: March 21, 2024, on Prime Video

Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Daniela Melchior, Billy Magnussen, Jessica Williams, Joaquim de Almeida, Conor McGregor, Lukas Gage, Arturo Castro

Directed by: Doug Liman

The 1989 Patrick Swayze action movie Road House is an indisputable cult classic, but director Doug Liman and Jake Gyllenhaal are giving it their own touch. Gyllenhaal stars in the new version as Elwood Dalton, a former UFC fighter who takes a job at a roadhouse (of course) in coastal Florida and becomes involved with all the wrong people. Will anyone’s necks be ripped? Only time will tell.

4. Monkey Man (2024)

Release Date: April 5, 2024

Cast: Dev Patel, Sharlto Copley, Pitobash, Vipin Sharma, Sikandar Kher, Sobhita Dhulipala, Ashwini Kalsekar

Directed by: Dev Patel

If the poster for Monkey Man looks like a horror picture, you might be startled to hear that it’s a John Wick-style action thriller set in Mumbai. Not only that, but it is Dev Patel’s feature directorial debut (he also co-wrote it), and he stars as an underground bare-knuckle boxer who goes on a violent rampage through the city’s filthy underworld.

3. A Quiet Place Day One

Release Date: June 28, 2024

Cast: Lupita Nyong’o, Joseph Quinn, Alex Wolff, Djimon Hounsou, Denis O’Hare

Directed by: Michael Sarnoski

Except for the spectacular opening scene of the second film, the action in the A Quiet Place franchise occurs after the super-hearing, super-deadly aliens have already arrived and destroyed society as we know it. As the title implies, the third film in the series will depict the early days of the alien onslaught, well before anyone understands what’s going on or what to anticipate from these monsters, and it will be directed by Michael Sarnoski, who gave one of Nicolas Cage’s best performances ever in 2021’s Pig. While the majority of the stated cast members are new, Djimon Hounsou’s role from Part II will return.

2. Dune Part – 2 (2024)

Release Date: March 1, 2024

Cast: Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård

Directed by: Denis Villeneuve

This was one of the most highly anticipated films. The day-and-date premiere of the first installment on HBO Max raised concerns about this sequel, but WB thankfully decided to give Denis Villeneuve the green light. In Part Two, prominent figures like Florence Pugh, Léa Seydoux, Austin Butler, and Christopher Walken join the ensemble as Villeneuve narrates the second half of Frank Herbert’s epic science fiction novel.

1. Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (2024)

Release Date: March 29, 2024

Cast: Dan Stevens, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Kaylee Hottle, Fala Chen, Alex Ferns, and Rachel House

Directed by: Adam Wingard

The two greatest kaiju of all time return for round two of the Monsterverse’s 2021 confrontation. However, the synopsis indicates that they may be partners rather than rivals this time around, as Godzilla and Kong will fight “a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world.” Dan Stevens has been cast as the film’s lead, joining returning GvK stars Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle. Adam Wingard, who directed the first bout, will also be behind the camera for this one.
