It’s been a solid year for cinema. As we hurtle towards 2020, we take a look at what silver screen greats will be welcoming us to a whole new decade…
Get ready for a bonkers satirical approach to Nazi Germany to kick off the new year. It seems that 2020 is going to be about going big or going home. Directed by Taika Waititi and starring Scarlet Johansson, Alfie Allen and Rebel Wilson, a young German boy’s world turns topsy turvy when he realizes his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in the attic.

Following in the footsteps of Jodorowsky and David Lynch is no simple feat but let's see what Denis Villeneuve can do with Frank Herbert’s epic space opera.
