New Movie Sequels to See in Theatres

2/1/2023 • 5 min read

Movie sequels are baked so deeply into filmmaking history that you cannot separate the idea of movies from the concept of sequels. While we didn't start seeing movies with a numeral designating sequel status until the '50s or '60s, the first movie sequel dates back to the early days of the silent film era.

After THE GODFATHER PART II won Best Picture, and the Star Wars movie series became the new paradigm for Hollywood, sequels became more popular than ever. But you're not here for history! You want to know what movie sequels are coming out in 2023, and what sequels are on the calendar even further out than that. Here you go: These are the sequels coming to movie theatres.

Magic Mike's Last Dance

Channing Tatum reunites with director Steven Soderbergh for a third, and if the title is correct, final Magic Mike movie. Since the first two films were great surprises with memorable comedy and huge hearts, getting to see MAGIC MIKE 3 in theatres is a treat. Read more about MAGIC MIKE'S LAST DANCE here. [February 10]

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

Marvel's next big story phase begins here as Ant-Man and his extended superhero family journey into the Quantum Realm. There Scott Lang must face the specter of his own failures as a father. ANT-MAN 3 will also offer up multiple versions of the villainous Kang the Conqueror. Read more about ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA here. [February 17]

Luther: The Fallen Sun

The movie sequel to Idris Elba's star-making series "Luther" follows the title character, now in disgrace, as he escapes from prison in order to stop a brutal serial killer who has adopted London as a hunting ground. Read more about LUTHER: THE FALLEN SUN here. [February 24]

Creed III

A powerful fighter from Adonis Creed's early years is released from prison, and he has his eye on Creed's crown. Read more about CREED III here. [March 3]

Scream VI

In SCREAM 6, a whole crew of Woodsboro survivors ends up in New York City at the same time, where a new Ghostface has built a shrine of sorts to the killer’s past incarnations. Read more about SCREAM VI here. [March 10]

Shazam! Fury of the Gods

Billy Batson gets his Shazam powers from the old gods, and in SHAZAM 2, the daughters of one, Atlas, want their dad's power back. When they try to take it, a battle ensues that will have reverberations across the DC Universe. Read more about SHAZAM! FURY OF THE GODS here. [March 17]


Ti West's movie X, starting Mia Goth, was a horror hit. The follow-up, PEARL, was an oddball surprise that further enamored fans of the first movie. Now, MAXXXINE reteams West and Goth for a third exploration of their twisted shared vision. [March 18]

John Wick Chapter 4

Ever since the assassin John Wick went back into action to avenge the death of his dog at the hands of some Eastern European gangsters, he has been beset by increasingly violent forces. Now, in JOHN WICK 4, things truly come to a head. Read more about JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 4 here. [March 24]

Evil Dead Rise

Whether this movie is a spiritual sequel to Sam Raimi's EVIL DEAD trilogy and the 2015 remake/sequel, or a true new chapter in the story doesn't really matter. It's a movie filled with deadites, creepy scares, and gallons of blood. Read more about EVIL DEAD RISE here. [April 21]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3

James Gunn closes out his Guardians trilogy, and his tenure at Marvel Studios, with this final outing. In GUARDIANS 3, we’ll get to see how Rocket Raccoon became Rocket Raccoon — and what that means for his future — as many other characters get their own wrap-up moments. Read more about GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 here. [May 5]

Fast X

With a tagline that says "the end of the road begins," you can bet we're in for something big with the next-to-last movie in the core FAST & FURIOUS series. Read more about FAST X here. [May 19]

Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse

Gwen Stacy and Miles Morales travel through dimensions to a universe that is seemingly exclusively home to Spiders, but that doesn't mean they're going to be welcome there. Read more about SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE here. [June 2]

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts

This 1990s-set adventure features classic Transformers designs in a globetrotting adventure that introduces a whole new breed of Transformer – the Maximals – to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons. Read more about TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS here. [June 9]

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny

Harrison Ford returns as Indiana Jones! The year is 1969 and Jones picks up the trail of former Nazis who have embedded themselves — and presumably their old ideology — into the US space race. Read more about INDIANA JONES AND THE DIAL OF DESTINY here. [June 30]

It's Jason Statham versus a super-sized shark, round two! [August 4]

Dune Part 2

At the end of the first part of Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune, the story was just starting to roll, with Paul Atreides taking a leadership role in the native Fremen population of the desert planet Arrakis. Now, in DUNE 2, we get to see the epic struggle that follows. Read more about DUNE: PART TWO here. [November 3]

The Marvels

Carol Danvers, Kamala Khan, and Monica Rambeau are somehow linked. So when one uses their powers, they swap places in space with one of the others. The Marvels have to figure out what’s going on and Nick Fury, with his Skrull allies, fits into the mystery, too. Read more about THE MARVELS here. [November 10]

Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

This is actually a HUNGER GAMES prequel but don't hold it against us for including it in a sequel round-up. The idea is close enough! We'll see how Coriolanus Snow came to power, and how he changed the direction of the Hunger Games. Read more about HUNGER GAMES: THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS AND SNAKES here. [November 17]

Trolls Band Together

The musical Trolls are back for TROLLS 3. All the story and song details are under wraps for now. [November 17]

Captain America: New World Order

Anthony Mackie gets to take center stage on the big screen as Captain America in the fourth film in the Cap series. Read more about CAPTAIN AMERICA: NEW WORLD ORDER here. [May 3, 2024]


We’ve got to wait until 2024 for George Miller’s next chapter in the Mad Max story, which continues with this prequel focused on the rise of Charlize Theron’s character Furioso. In this outing, Furioso is played by Anya Taylor-Joy of THE MENU and THE WITCH. Read more about TKTITLETK here. [May 24, 2024]

Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part Two

We won't have long to wait for the second half of DEAD RECKONING. The eighth MISSION movie comes out less than a year after the first part. Since we haven't seen the first part yet, we won't even speculate on the story, but we can guess that the action sequences will be worth the wait. [June 28, 2024]


Marvel's new team-up movie isn't just the launch of a new hero group; it is very likely going to be a backdoor sequel to BLACK WIDOW. Read more about THUNDERBOLTS here. [July 26, 2024]

Deadpool 3

Deadpool migrates to Marvel Studios at last, and he’s bringing Hugh Jackman’s version of Wolverine with him. That’s all we really know about the sequel, but isn’t that enough? Read more about DEADPOOL 3 here. [November 8, 2024]

Gladiator 2

Director Ridley Scott is making GLADIATOR 2 at last. The project went into development more than 20 years ago but working out the story took a long time! Paul Mescal (AFTERSUN) looks set to star as Lucius, seen as a boy in the original movie, who now investigates his true parentage as he strives for power. [November 22, 2024]

Avatar 3

Much of AVATAR 3 was filmed at the same time as THE WAY OF WATER, and since that second movie in James Cameron's series is now one of the highest-grossing movies ever released, the third movie's release is a certainty. AVATAR 3 will explore more of Pandora and introduce many new characters as it hits the storyline with what Cameron has described as "a wrecking ball." [December 20, 2024]

M3GAN 2.0

The first outing of this techno-babysitter was an immediate hit and Universal wasted no time in pushing a sequel forward. Much of the cast and crew will reunite, and the only downside of M3GAN 2.0 is that we have to wait two years to see it. [January 17, 2025]
