What movies are you excited about in 2021?
What movies are you excited about in 2021?

It hasn’t been an easy year for the movie industry. Theaters are closed and work on film sets halted. Companies tried to figure out how best to release what new releases they had on streaming services. On this edition of The Hit List, we’re talking about the best movies from 2020.

But we still saw some quality movies in 2020. Christopher Nolan’s highly-anticipated movie “Tenet” saw a limited release in theaters. 1A covered Chadwick Boseman’s final performance in the Netflix film “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” Steve McQueen’s “Small Axe” films series has drawn plaudits galore.

What’s next for the movie industry? How are studios, actors and crew members recovering from an unprecedented year?
