In short, there are plenty of upcoming movies to start getting excited about. But at The Digital Fix, we already have a few favorites and favorites on our list to share with you all. Here is the top Movies of 2023 we can’t wait.

  • Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1
  • Oppenheimer
  • Barbie
  • Renfield
  • Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse
  • Wonka
  • Indiana Jones 5

Dune: part 2

The sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s incredible 2021 sci-fi film Dune, Dune: Part 2 is probably the most anticipated film of 2023 among all of us here at The Digital Fix, period. Adapting the iconic novel of the same name by Frank Herbert, the first Dune movie earned 11 Oscar nominations and with some new A-listers added to the sequel; we expect bigger and better things for the franchise next year.

Adam Butler and Florence Pugh are among the newcomers set to join the next chapter in the epic Spice adventure, joining Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya in the race for intergalactic resources, so yes, our expectations are pretty much sky high. Dune: Part Two arrives October 20, 2023.

Movies of 2023: Mission Impossible - Self Esteem

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1

If you’re not excited about the upcoming Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning spy movie, I’m sorry, but you’re lying. Even if action movies aren’t your thing, the level of suspense from all the setbacks and setbacks this film has faced is enough to get you invested in Tom Cruise’s next outing as Agent Hunt.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie (that’s right, he’s back!) Dead Reckoning is the seventh film in the Mission Impossible franchise and, like its predecessors, should be a Tom Cruise flick full of adrenaline-pumping stunts… what more ? Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One will hit theaters on July 14, 2023.

Movies of 2023: Oppenheimer


When Christopher Nolan announces a new movie, everyone sits up and pays attention. Now imagine if this new Nolan movie also had a $100 million production budget and an agreement that Universal Studios couldn’t show another movie for a three-week period before and after its release. Oh, and let’s not mention how nearly every character in it is also an A-lister.

Oppenheimer, in short, sounds like a show we’re all dying to see. Telling the story of the father of the atomic bomb, J. Robert Oppenheimer, it’s a war movie shrouded in mystery that, by its current reputation, already has something to live up to. Oppenheimer will be released in theaters on July 21, 2023.

Movies of 2023: Barbie


Even if you’re not a Barbie girl living in a Barbie world, it’s hard not to be excited about Greta Gerwig’s upcoming film based on Mattel’s famous plastic doll. Along with holding a stellar cast with Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken, the film is also Barbie’s first live-action outing after tons of animated features. So yes, history is being made, friends!

We are also looking forward to the new Barbie movie as we have absolutely no idea what kind of movie it will be. In viral videos, Ken was shown screaming like a little girl while Barbie turned off the lights for a guy on roller skates.

Like many moviegoers, we’re intrigued by Gerwig’s vision and can’t wait to see the hot pink story on the big screen. Barbie hits theaters on July 21, 2023.

Movies of 2023: Renfield


I mean come on! Who doesn’t want to see Nicolas Cage as Dracula, right? Directed by Chris McKay, the horror movie Renfield is set to follow the life of Count Dracula’s henchman, played by Nicholas Hoult of X-Men: First Class fame.

The pitch of the movie has it all, be it comedy, romance and of course scary features as well. The Digital Fix are advocates for feel-good movies and scary movies, and from the sound of it, Renfield is ready to tick both of those boxes – meaning it’ll be a movie to watch, whatever your mood.

Oh, and I can’t stress this enough, there’s also the fact that I want nothing more than to see Nicolas Cage glue on vampire teeth and embrace his Transylvanian destiny. Renfield is set to release on April 14, 2023.

Movies of 2023: Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse

Forget the Multiverse of Madness or the Marvel movie No Way Home, because this interdimensional Spider-Man flick is set to blow its competitors out of the water in the year 2023. The sequel to the hit animated film Spider- Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, will see Miles Morales return to the big screen for an all-new web-based adventure.

Given that its predecessor is so beloved and generally hit (it even won an Oscar) – obviously Across the Spider-Verse had to be on our list. The film hits theaters on June 2, 2023.

Movies of 2023: Wonka


Paul King stole all of our hearts with the family-friendly Paddington movie, and now we’re ready for his take on one of the most iconic children’s stories of all time – Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Wonka is the prequel film to the sweet tycoon story that will star Timothée Chalamet as the title character.

We’ve never seen a movie dedicated to the start of Willy Wonka’s empire, although there are already two Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movies in Hollywood history. Wonka is poised to be a musical as well as a fantasy movie and is full of possibilities. No one knows what the story will reveal, but we’re sure King will give us all another masterpiece. Wonka will arrive in theaters on December 15, 2023.

Movies of 2023: Indiana Jones 5

Indiana Jones 5

We’ve been waiting over a decade for Indy’s next release, and it’s safe to say that all adventure movie fans are relieved that a 2023 release date has been set in stone. Indiana Jones 5 will see Harrison Ford put on his fedora and return as everyone’s favorite teacher – in what many believe will be his final film in the beloved franchise.

Currently, not much is known about the plot of the film. However, we do know that Antonio Banderas will be a villain, and if this is Indy’s final adventure, it will end with a bang. Indiana Jones movies have been around since the ’80s, and we’re ready to give this hit IP the respect and hype it deserves. Indiana Jones 5 will arrive in theaters on June 30, 2023.

Movies of 2023: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.  3

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

While plenty of superhero movies are scheduled to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2023, our top pick is James Gunn’s upcoming action flick Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Gunn has proven to be one of the best directors in gaming when it comes to action movies and franchises.

Whether it’s humor, stunts or special effects, Guardians of the Galaxy has consistently delivered since the first film hit our screens in 2014. And as we enter Marvel Phase 5 , we are confident that the third outing in the series will live up to all. our high standards and expectations. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will hit theaters on May 5, 2023.

Movies of 2023: Chicken Run Dawn of the Nugget

Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget

It’s been 20 years. We thought this would never happen, and then the movie gods blessed us all with the good news. That’s right, Chicken Run 2 is real; this is happening and it is officially confirmed to be coming to Netflix in 2023.

For those who may not realize just how supreme the 2000s film Chicken Run truly is, the film is one of the highest-grossing stop-motion animated films of all time, earning over 224 millions of dollars. The children’s film followed the escape of some poultry friends from a chicken farm before they were turned into pies, and judging by the title of its upcoming sequel, it looks like the giggling gang will try to avoid being on the menu again.

And that’s it, friends! For more quality choices, here’s our list of the best movies of all time.
