Some of the biggest blockbusters are yet to arrive in cinemas. There's something for everyone this year, from adrenaline-pumping action movies like Twisters and Deadpool & Wolverine to feel-good films like Inside Out 2 and Wicked. Here, we've rounded up the most exciting releases of 2024…

Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust in Inside Out 2

Inside Out 2

Described as a "feel-good (or feel-everything)" flick for 2024, Inside Out 2 picks up with Riley in her teen years. Just when her emotions – Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust – have learned to live in harmony, Anxiety turns up, causing chaos in headquarters. 

Boasting a stellar cast that includes Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Maya Hawke, Tony Hale, and Ayo Edibiri, we're hoping this fun-filled sequel has as much magic as the first.

Horizon: An American Saga – Part One

After leaving Yellowstone to work on Horizon: An American Saga, Kevin Costner's efforts paid off when he received a 10-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival. 

Spanning the four years of the Civil War, from 1861 to 1865, Horizon explores "the lure of the Old West and how it was won—and lost—through the blood, sweat and tears of many."

Leading a huge ensemble cast, Kevin stars alongside Sienna Miller, Sam Worthington, Jena Malone, Owen Crow Shoe, Tatanka Means, Ella Hunt, Tim Guinee and Danny Huston.

A standalone sequel to the cult classic, Twister (1996), Daisy Edgar-Jones and Glen Powell star as Kate Cooper and Tyler Owens – two perfect strangers working together to predict, and possibly tame tornadoes. 

An action-packed disaster movie, this high-stakes thriller looks seriously tense. "It's a rowdy good time, just like the original," star Glen Powell told Indie Wire

When Deadpool is recruited by the Time Variance Authority to safeguard the multiverse, he convinces a sulking Wolverine to join him – cue plenty of witty one-liners and slow-mo action sequences.

40 years after Lydia first encountered Betelgeuse, she returns home to Winter River with her rebellious daughter, Astrid, who accidentally releases Betelgeuse from the afterlife, causing endless chaos.
