2019 was an incredible year for pop culture. With insane new highs (like the newest film to be titled the box office king) to some terrible lows. 2020 opens up a whole new world of possibilities with our entertainment. It’s really exciting. Some of us here at Geek Girl Authority have a couple ideas as to how things are going to go this year. So get your theory hats on and dive into the well of prospects with us.
Right out of the gate Leona Laurie has some fierely bold and awesome opinions on what she thinks the new year will have:
Roberto Vernezobre also has some bold predictions he’s seeing in the new year:
George Lucas directs a Star Wars film.
Climate change is the star of horror films.
There will be several movies about the Trump Presidency.
Lady Gaga joins the EGOT club.
A movie will be made with a cast of all dead actors.
Nobody cares about the MCU anymore so Iron Man returns.
Meanwhile Julia Roth has one strong prediction that’s looking very likely this year:
I think we are finally going to get an upgrade to the Nintendo Switch. Stronger, more storage and maybe even larger. This will be their shot at trying to compete with the brand new generations of consoles coming out during the holidays.
For myself, I have a couple ideas that we could see this year:
I think that Wonder Woman will get a third film announced and it will be set in the modern age. She does best in her solo films so I can see them trying to move the timeline up faster.
Another prediction I have is that a new form of social media will emerge. It seems vague but it just feels like this could be the year in which we have another way to be social with one another.
I believe the first preview for Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series will immediately split the fandom. Some will be excited, others will be against it.
My final prediction is that the streaming war will claim its first victim relatively quickly in the year. At the same time, the streaming sites will be making more aggressive moves to compete with theater ticket sales. Could this be the year we get a blockbuster purely on a streaming service?
