If you are a movie lover, you are probably aware that the premieres this year promise. From feature films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to others of drama and suspense will arrive (or have already arrived) to please all tastes. But, if you still don't know what the most anticipated films of 2020 are, quiet, then we show you a list with which, in our opinion, will be the most popular.
Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)
Margot Robbie returns to her role as Suicide Squad as the exceptional and unpredictable anti-hero Harley Quinn in this film in which she teams up with a group of women from the DC Comics pages to protect a young woman from a violent crime scene. The film's cast includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez and Ella Jay Basco, with Ewan McGregor playing Roman Sionis, also known as the brutal Black Mask. Birds of Prey puts some of DC's most popular women under the spotlight, and it is certainly a crazy and eccentric Harley Quinn adventure. Best of all, this feature film is now available to enjoy at the movies.

A Quiet Place: Part II
To Quiet Place, one of the best films of 2018, took the tension to frightening levels with the story of a family that tries to survive in a post-apocalyptic world full of creatures that kill anything they can hear and in which even the slightest sound can prove deadly. John Krasinski returns as screenwriter and director of the sequel, with Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe returning to their first film roles. Although the sequel brings enough mysteries to explore (how many survivors remain, for example, and how to use the family their new knowledge related to the weakness of the creatures) the biggest question is whether the sequel could replicate the success of the unique premise of the first film, in addition to its creative use of sound (or the absence of it).
