The best (and most anticipated) movies of 2023 so far

Greta Gerwig, does it make sense that her feminist-influenced crafted Little Women in the 21st century would turn to the paragon of resistance- Feminism? Not really, but that just makes it more interesting. Adding to the bewildering appeal: She co-wrote the movie with her husband and frequent collaborator Noah Baumbach (White Noise), but didn’t Not known for its “plastic life” aesthetic. This is most likely not a case of recycled IP: a trailer released last year explicitly mentions 1985: A Space Odyssey . Concrete information about what this movie is actually about is hard to come by, but the plot around it is getting thicker and thicker. -CS


Dune: Part 2

November , moviegoers can finally return to the vast tangerine Sands of Arrakis, which hits theaters as the second (and likely final, despite the spinoff) chapter of Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of the literary sci-fi epic. Timothée Chalamet’s Paul Atreides teams up with Zendaya’s Chani and her Freeman community to protect the future of the planet and avenge his father’s death. The series’ star wattage will also be further boosted in part two with the arrival of Florence Pugh as the Mystic Princess and Austin Butler as Paul’s new nemesis – so we can expect on-screen Thrills and spills, and some serious looks at a red carpet press conference. -LH

at the box office when it comes out in December . Rumored to be an all-singing, all-dancing movie musical (starring Keegan-Michael Key, Rowan Atkinson, Olivia Colman and Sally Hawkins, among others), the new film adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic has been kept under wraps, Only one official photo and some guerrilla footage by locals during filming in the south of England 2023 went on.

The Color Purple

by Blitz Bazawule and adapted from the film by Marcus Gardley, this adaptation of Alice Walker 1900 The youth drama of the novel will tell the story of Celie – an African American woman living in the South at the end of her early 1900 years. Best efforts to tackle abuse, poverty, and racism—this is the second big screen. (Steven Spielberg also adapted Walker’s work in a 1900 film starring Whoopi Goldberg as her Breakthrough role, and while Goldberg is hard to match, we’re rooting for this updated musical release.)—Emma Specter

Sometime in 2023…

Fair Play

Fair Play Cross the vintage erotic thriller vibe of classic Adrian Lyne films like Fatal Attraction with recent shows like Billions cold-blooded high-risk financing strategy or industry. A young Manhattan couple Luke (Alden Ehrenrich) and Emily (Phoebe Dynefer) work at the same hedge fund despite their secret romance. They can’t keep their hands off each other; Luke proposes, and wedding plans are laid. Then, Emily gets the job promotion Luke was expecting, and the balance of power between them is upended. Fair Play, , which premiered at Sundance and was immediately acquired by Netflix, is fast-paced and provocative with ideas about gender, ambition, and the self. It’s also edgy, angry, and a little erotic. When it hits your Netflix home screen later this year, you’ll have an evening of fun. —TA

You Hurt My Feelings

It’s impossible not to like this funny, tender, thoughtful film from veteran filmmaker Nicole Holofcener about the relationship between a bohemian elderly couple in Brooklyn. Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tobias Menzies play a married couple at the center of the film: Beth is a writer who has published a semi-successful memoir and is finishing one In the novel, Don is a therapist in a private practice. When Beth overhears Don telling her brother-in-law that he doesn’t actually like her manuscript – despite his assurances that he does – a crisis of confidence erupts. Holofcener magnifies a small-stakes drama into scenes of marital squabbles and tension that are diffused by larger issues of parenting and aging, and just…get on with things. A small film, but poised and hilarious. —TA

Legally Blonde 3

Any franchise follow-up will hardly compare to the original Legally Blonde. (How do you compare to Bend-and-Snap?) Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde Absolutely…unknown to say the least Overwhelmed. But there are high hopes for the third part, which was approved in May of 2020. With Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor penning the script, and Reese Witherspoon and original producer Marc Platt returning, the cards seem to be aligning for this refreshingly bimbo-empowered update of the Elle Woods story. -ES
