Among all the non-drama genres, the thriller genre is probably the most adrenaline-inducing. Sometimes the goriness of horror and the intense fight- sequences of action just don’t seem to do the trick.
With the pandemic situation improving around the world, and the increase in the release of Movies On Demand, 2020 is undoubtedly jam-packed with the best movies! Here we have listed the best upcoming thriller movies of 2020.
The Devil All The Time
Release Date: 16th September 2020
This Netflix original will be set in Ohio, after the events of World War II and before the Vietnam War. Written by Antonio Campos and Paolo Campos, The Devil All The Time will follow the lives of a set of estranged characters, trying to cope with post-war changes.
If that does not excite you, then surely the psychological thriller’s ensemble cast should! The Devil All The Time will have Tom Holland (our favourite Spider-Man), Bill Skarsgard and Robert Pattinson among many other cast members.
Death on the Nile
Release Date: 9th October 2020
Adapted from the 1937 Agatha Christie novel of the same name, Death on the Nile will follow the detective Hercule Poirot (previously seen on Murder on the Orient Express) trying to solve the mystery behind the death of one of his clients, all while on a ship, on the way to Egypt!
Death on the Nile will be starring as well as directed by Kenneth Branagh. Branagh is back with another exceptionally talented cast sporting Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer and Tom Bateman, to name a few!
Release Date: August 26th 2020
Our favourite director is back at it again with the time-related mind games! This time it’s starring Robert Pattinson and John David Washington in the lead! Tenet is said to play with time relativity. This time to prevent World War III.
The August release date will only be for 70 countries outside the US. Tenet will be released in the US on September 3rd.
The Tax Collector
Release Date: 7th August 2020
Suicide Squad’s David Ayer is returning with one the most anticipated upcoming thriller movies of the year. The Tax Collector is set around the life of, well, a tax collector. Not your legal do-good fellow though. The movie revolves around Creeper (played by Shia LaBeouf) who collects cash from different mobs for the influential Mafia leader, Wizard.
Shia LaBeouf has displayed immense dedication to his character in The Tax Collector, and we can’t help but be inspired to reach that level! The actor has actually tatted his entire chest just for the role! And they’re not temporary!
No Time To Die
Release Date: 11th November 2020
The last adventure of Daniel Craig as the superspy Bond, No Time To Die is one of the highly anticipated upcoming thriller movies of 2020! But what could be so important that James Bond has to return to work from his retirement bliss? The craftiest villain, of course!
