Though it is still a long way off, here is the list of confirmed 2023 movie releases (so far). Following several years of significant movie delays or cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, theatres and studios are finally getting back on track. While most films scheduled for release in 2020 have been pushed back to 2021 or 2022, the confirmed slate of film releases for 2023 has seen brand new projects, as well as other films, pushed back to accommodate crowded release schedules. Big-budget franchise films from studios like Disney have had to push back their original release dates, which means sequels like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Indiana Jones 5 that were originally scheduled for release much earlier will now be released in 2023.

Even though 2023 is still a long way off, a few highly anticipated films that were originally scheduled for 2023 have been pushed back to 2024. Furiosa, the Mad Max: Fury Road origin story, was originally scheduled for June 2023 but has now been pushed back to 2024. Due to unforeseen delays caused by the pandemic, Marvel Studios originally had a few untitled projects set for 2023 that were removed entirely from the lineup. It’s possible that these cancelled Marvel Phase 4 movies will be rescheduled for 2024 rather than cancelled entirely, but it just goes to show that moviegoing isn’t quite back to normal yet.

While there is already a hefty slate of exciting confirmed movies set to hit theatres in 2023, there are many more on the way that have yet to receive a title or anything more conclusive than “Untitled Universal Studios Project,” for example. Because Disney has continued to change its release schedule with long delays, some 2022-projected movies are expected to be pushed back to 2023 in the future. Nonetheless, here are all of the confirmed upcoming 2023 films.
