Top 10 2022 Films You Shouldn't Miss

Updated: Nov 12, 2021

2022 is coming out swinging as the global pandemic slowly enters the rearview mirrors. On the slate are some much expected blockbuster movies such as DC's Aquaman 2 & Jurassic World Dominion set to close the reboot trilogy. But, also on the horizon are some highly unexpected films slated for 2022 such as Legally Blonde 3 as well as Kung Fury 2.

Directing her own past from so far into the future, Hogg has a strong but unadulterated view of her young self, and as an audience we can appreciate how the naive girl grows into the visionary behind the camera. The Souvenir Part II follows our protagonist as she begins to unravel the complications of her recently tragic relationship, discerning fact from fiction while making her graduation film.

The Souvenir Part II is slated for a January 2022 wide release
