SF, Fantasy and Horror films to look forward to in 2020 by Jacey Bedford

Rise of Skywalker2019 was a mixed bag of SF and fantasy movies. I saw 24 movies in total – a little lower than my usual 30 –  but only 14 of them were genre – and that’s counting Dumbo, Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2.  There was Mary Poppins Returns, of course, Captain Marvel, Shazam, and the much anticipated Avengers Endgame with Spiderman Far from Home as the epilogue for this round of Marvel movies – or maybe the prologue for the next.. The autumn was a little slow for science fiction and fantasy, apart from Adastra and Terminator Dark Fate. Though there was the very sweet Yesterday, if you count that as fantasy. (It’s a ‘what-if’ storyline so that works for me.) The year finishes with Frozen 2 and Star Wars 9, which I haven’t seen yet, though I intend to. I also intend to see cats if I can. I blog all the movies I see and all the books I read over at my Dreamwidth blog. And I talk about my science fiction and fantasy writing here on my WordPress blog.

As 2019 draws to a close, I’m looking forward to 2020’s movies. I don’t tend to seek out horror, but I do try and see as many SF and Fantasy ones as possible.
