Upcoming Hollywood Movies 2023 During the past couple of years, Hollywood has been in a state of unusualness, to say the least, and like all other industries, Hollywood has been facing a number of changes as a result. In 2021, Warner Bros. committed to streaming all of their major releases on HBO Max simultaneously, but the results were mixed, while other studios opted to combine theatrical and digital strategies, with mixed results. Although it is unlikely that this will change by 2023, it still does not mean that we will not be able to watch some incredible films by then. This is the Upcoming Hollywood Movies 2023, and we will continue to update this page as more titles are announced, and more details are released, so please check back often to see what is coming soon!

Opening on: March 10, 2023
In the aftermath of the release of 2022’s Scream, it has already been announced that a sequel will indeed take place involving the characters who survived the film, and the plot will be directly tied into that film’s characters. One day after that (or just the next day, to be exact), Hayden Panettiere was announced as returning to the series and reprising her role as Kirby Reed in Scream 4. As a result, this installment will be the first in which franchise star Neve Campbell does not appear, as she decided not to return after she was offered less than she believed she would be paid for the movie. While we do not know exactly what is going to happen in the story, we do know that without Sidney Prescott around, it will not feel quite the same as it was.

This year, writer-director James Gunn returns with Guardians, a giddy irreverent follow-up to the giddy wit of the Suicide Squad from 2021.

It has also been revealed that Will Poulter will play Adam Warlock, the character teased at the end of Volume 2 in the previous season.

Directed by: Joaquim Dos Santos
Starring: Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Oscar Isaac, Issa Rae
Opening on: June 2, 2023
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which won the Academy Award for its animation, was widely regarded as a big hit by critics and audiences. Across the Spider-Verse was also one of the most anticipated films of 2022, but was later rescheduled. There will be two actors joining Shameik Moore’s Miles Morales this time around, with Hailee Steinfeld’s Gwen Stacy and Oscar Isaac’s Miguel O’Hara (aka Spider-Man 2099).

Directed by: Steven Caple Jr.
Starring: Ron Perlman, Anthony Ramos, Peter Cullen, Dominique Fishback, Luna Lauren Velez
Opening on: June 9, 2023
As the Transformers franchise moves into its fourth movie, it takes viewers to a time period reminiscent of the 1980s with Bumblebee, and this time, viewers can get a sense of the mid-90s when a pair of archaeologists find themselves in the middle of a three-way conflict between three factions. A loose interpretation of the Beast Wars storyline will be used to direct the film, which will be directed by Steven Caple Jr. (Creed II). Peter Cullen will return to play the voice of Optimus Prime and there are actors like Ron Perlman, Anthony Ramos, and Dominique Fishback as part of the cast, along with other members of the film.
The Flash (2023)
Directed by: Andy Muschietti
Starring: Ezra Miller, Ben Affleck, Sasha Calle, Billy Crudup, Michael Keaton
Opening on: June 23, 2023
I hope you have heard that multiverses are going to be all the rage by the end of 2022, and this movie is set to serve as DC’s contribution to that trend. We do not yet have any information about the plot of this film, just like a lot of the other movies on this list, but the casting of Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne could either be a super meta stunt or a big hint about what to expect. As rumor has it, this movie will be based on the “Flashpoint” storyline from the comic book, which means that crossovers may occur in the future regarding the characters from the comic book.
Indiana Jones 5 (2023)
Directed by: James Mangold
Starring: Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, Mads Mikkelsen, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook

It was originally planned that Mission: Impossible 8 would be released in this slot, however with COVID being what it is, we’ll be getting a M:I 7 movie in 2023, followed by a M:I 8 movie in 2024. It is important to note that Tom Cruise has been playing Ethan Hunt for more than 27 years when this movie hits theaters. Where do the years go? In this installment of the franchise, we will see familiar franchise characters like Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Czerny, Vanessa Kirby, and Esai Morales, as well as many other familiar franchise actors, who will also play villains.
Directed by: Christopher Nolan
Starring: Cillian Murphy, Florence Pugh, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Rami Malek, Josh Hartnett, Benny Safdie
Opening on: July 21, 2023
As part of Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated biopic, Cillian Murphy plays J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb, and has Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, and other prominent stars, in the titular role. It would be best to watch the IMAX-shot film on the biggest screen possible as it is similar to virtually every other Nolan film.

A Martin Scorsese documentary is set to retell the legacy of the 32nd president of the United States, which will star Leonardo DiCaprio, who will be playing the role of the man who led the country during World War II and the Great Depression.
