However, despite the suspense and excitement surrounding Robert Pattinson‘s The Batman Part 2 and the unnamed Star Wars movie, the projects appear to be struggling to match the hype surrounding the most anticipated films of that year.

According to the list of 2026 films dropped on social media by @screentime, there are iconic movies that are expected to break box office records and captivate audiences worldwide. Perhaps a few of the films in the list even hold the capability of overshadowing the buzz surrounding Robert Pattinson’s The Batman Part 2 and the Star Wars movie. 

Take, for example, Timothée Chalamet‘s Dune 3 slated to release in 2026, which seems to hold immense potential, especially after Denis Villeneuve captivated fans with his two prequels. Similarly, given the MCU’s momentum and its ability to thrill fans with its multiverse saga, the upcoming Avengers 5 seems poised to be a game-changer.

Therefore, as the anticipation for these films grows stronger with each passing day, it becomes fascinating for audiences to wait and watch which movies eventually emerge victorious at the box office.
