1 No Time to Die

Cillian Murphy is just the latest star being tipped to replace Daniel Craig as 007.

Of course, fans would actually have to see No Time to Die first before there can be a sequel.

Hollywood's most high-profile victim of the global pandemic has now been pushed back for a third time from April to October 8.

Or another six months of absolutely dying to see Rami Malek as the legendary saga's latest villain Safin.

2 The Matrix 4

Follow the white rabbit all the way to cinemas on December 22.

The fourth instalment in the mind-bending Matrix franchise sees Keanu Reeves reprise his role as bullet-dodging Neo opposite ass-kicking Trinity, played by Carrie-Anne Moss.

Although the plot and title remain top secret, it's thought the flick will pick up where the Wachowski's trilogy left off in 2003, while Keanu recently called it "a love story".

A love story with "guns, lots of guns", presumably.

3 Mission: Impossible 7

It's sweary, explosive and stars Tom Cruise - but that's enough about the Covid rant by the actor on the set of the sequel to 2018's Fallout that went viral late last year.

Apart from professional dangler Ethan Hunt, the film welcomes Henry Czerny back to the fold as Impossible Mission Force boss Eugene Kittridge for the first time since the 1996 original.

It's out on November 19 - and it better be f***ing good.

It's another return for the Cruisemeister as Top Gun 2 finally takes flight on July 2.

But who could the young gun that Maverick takes under his wing in the sequel to the cult 1986 bromance possibly be related to? Clue: his nickname is 'Rooster' and he's played by Anthony Edwards lookalike Miles Teller.

5 A Quiet Place Part II

You know what the world needs right now?

A white-knuckled horror about a family on the run from an evil force that has decimated Earth.

The low-ish budget original co-written and directed by John Krasinki and starring real-life wife Emily Blunt became the hit that no-one saw coming in 2018.

But - shhh - expect plenty more jump scares when the Abbotts continue their fight for survival in total silence on April 23.

Why have one sequel when you can have two?

Slated for release on May 21, this monster mash-up sees Hollywood's most famous ape take on the T-Rex-with-attitude in a battle for world dominance in the follow-up to both Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) and Kong: Skull Island (2017).

The Fast & Furious finally runs out of road after an 11th movie in 2023, Universal Pictures has confirmed.

But first, the antepenultimate instalment in the tyre-shredding series, which first revved up in 2001, sees Dom (Vin Diesel) get the gang back together to facedown a new foe - his bro Jakob (John Cena).

Number nine is due to hit big screens here on May 28, provided Covid doesn't pump the brakes.
