The School for Good and Evil is said to be released in September 2022. This fantasy fiction movie directed by Paul Feig is based on two best friends, Agatha and Sophie, who are kidnaped and taken to a mysterious school. While they try to figure out a way to escape, they are forced into opposing sides of a battle between good and evil.

2. Day Shift (2022)
Day Shift will be released this month on August 12th, 2022. This comedic action-fantasy film is based on a hard-working, laboring father called Bud (Jamie Foxx) who works as a pool cleaner and simply wants the best for his 6-year-old daughter. However, at night, he turns into a skilled vampire hunter to gain more money for his family. He works with two other hunters Big John (Snoop Dogg) and Seth (Dave Franco).
This movie was directed by J.J Perry and is worth the watch if you loved the Zombieland movies and missed action-filled vampire hunting movies. This movie takes on its own unique stance as it has the action-base of James Bond mixed with a concoction of comedy and vampires.
3. Enola Holmes 2 2022
Enola Holmes 2, directed by Harry Bradbeer, is said to be coming out on Netflix sometime in the remainder of 2022. This adventure, crime movie series was about Sherlock’s teenage sister named Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown). When she discovers her mother is missing, she begins her investigation outwitting her famous brother, and discovers dangerous knowledge surrounding the young Lord.
In the upcoming second movie, she embarks on a new mission, now as an official detective, to track down a newly missing girl using clues in paintings and the help of her friends and brother. The first movie received 3 awards and 11 nominations due to it being a massive hit on Netflix and so there are high expectations for Elona Holmes 2 to be just as beautifully crafted.
4. Blonde (2022)
The movie Blonde is set to be released on the 28th of September 2022. This psychological drama is based on a fictionalized version of the story of the infamous Marilyn Monroe played by Ana De Armas.

It will be interesting to see which angle the director, Andrew Dominik, has taken to her story. Will he include her death in the film? There will be a jaw-dropping contrast in viewing the star Marilyn Monroe, and then her inner, real self; Norma Jeane Mortenson. People may see her in a much darker light than what is remembered of this glamorized, American sweetheart.
