Insider saw loads of never-before-seen footage of dozens of upcoming movies at CinemaCon.
Highlights include Kristen Stewart playing Princess Diana in "Spencer" and "Dune" footage.
We were also treated with the entre "Ghostbusters: Afterlife."
"Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" (September 3)
The latest Marvel movie is a thrilling introduction to the martial arts master, played by Simu Liu.
Our review of the movie highlights its amazing fight sequences and perfect origin story tone. Still, watching the movie at CinemaCon we also were taken by its comedy and powerful sense of family.
It's definitely another must-see MCU title.
"No Time to Die" (October 8)
Taking in nine glorious minutes of never-before-seen footage from the latest James Bond movie, we were on the edge of our seats watching Daniel Craig racing through an exotic location while escaping bad guys in his Aston Martin.
As this is seemingly the final time we will see Craig as 007, director Cary Joji Fukunaga seems to be the perfect selection to close out this chapter of the franchise.
"Halloween Kills" (October 15)
That's right: Michael Myers isn't dead.
Despite the efforts by Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode to take out the killing machine in 2018's "Halloween," it looks like Blumhouse is giving us one more look at this horror legend (well, until someone else wants to dust off the IP).
The footage we saw gives the feel that there will be some finality this time around for the classic character John Carpenter created.
"Dune" (October 22)
Along with a new trailer, we saw an additional scene from the movie.
Not giving too much away, the visuals are dazzling and Timothée Chalamet is perfectly casted playing Paul, the main character in this epic, based on the legendary Frank Herbert novel.
We were particularly taken by Hans Zimmer's score, which just elevates everything you're watching.
"Spencer" (November 5)
If you have seen the recently-released trailer, you can see that Kristen Stewart is going all out in her portrayal of Princess Diana.
But it goes further than that. Though you can barely hear Stewart's Princess Di English accent in the teaser, we saw a scene of the movie at CinemaCon and can tell you that her accent is perfection.
"Ghostbusters: Afterlife" (November 11)
On the opening night of CinemaCon, we were treated by Sony with a screening of this latest chapter in the "Ghostbusters" franchise.
What Jason Reitman (the son of Ivan Reitman, who directed the original movie) has done here is created a story where both fans of the first movie and those who know little about it can come together and have a thrilling adventure.
"King Richard" (November 19)
Will Smith is looking to grab an Oscar with his portrayal of Richard Williams, the father and coach of Venus and Serena Williams.
It's hard not to root for Smith, who for decades has delivered Oscar-worthy performances but has always been beat. This may be the one that gets him over the hump.
Smith as Williams is driven to get his girls to the top, but clearly isn't scared to push them beyond conventional limits to make them great.
"Top Gun: Maverick" (November 19)
Paramount showcased the opening of the movie at CinemaCon and it had everyone jumping out of their seats with its nostalgic feel of the 1986 original.
"House of Gucci" (November 24)
Sadly, there wasn't any new footage featured, but we can seriously watch this trailer on a loop. Lady Gaga looks so great in it.
"Spider-Man: No Way Home" (December 17)
You may have heard: The "Now Way Home" trailer dropped.
It went live online right as Sony head Tom Rothman was introducing it to us at CinemaCon. It was fun watching it on the big screen.
"The Matrix: Resurrections" (December 22)
Warner Bros. made news when it didn't just reveal the title of the upcoming "Matrix" movie but showed footage.
As you would imagine, the fight scenes were like nothing you have seen before. And also something we have never seen from this franchise: Keanu Reeves with facial hair.
Reeves returns as Neo but this time sporting long hair and a beard.
"Sing 2" (December 22)
For the kids, the "Sing" sequel returns with stars from the original — Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly — as well as a few new ones like Eric André and Bono.
"The 355" (January 7, 2022)
This female-led action spy movie has the hype and from the footage we saw it may live up to it.
Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong'o, Diane Kruger, and Bingbing Fan play members of a CIA team out to save the world. Sebastian Stan, Édgar Ramírez, and Penélope Cruz also star.
"The Black Phone" (January 29, 2022)
This was one of the standout trailers at CinemaCon this year.
Directed by "Doctor Strange" director Scott Derrickson, Ethan Hawke stars as a psycho who kidnaps a boy and throws him into a soundproof basement.
It gets weirder and more scary from there as the boy tries to escape with the help from the spirits of the killer's victims who call the boy on a disconnected black phone that's in the room.
"Marry Me" (February 11, 2022)
Jennifer Lopez returns to the rom-com genre and brings along Owen Wilson.
Lopez is a famous singer who decides to marry a fan in the crowd at one of her concerts after being publicly embarrassed by her ex. Turns out that fan, played by Wilson, was forced to go to the concert with his daughter and has no clue who the singer is...but goes along with marrying her anyway.
Nothing beats a little fish-out-of-water vibe in a romantic comedy.
"Ambulance" (February 18, 2022)
Michael Bay teams with Jake Gyllenhaal for this heist movie thriller.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, whose character desperately needs money for his family, also stars as he joins Gyllenhaal's character to rob a bank. The heist goes bad and suddenly Gyllenhaal and Abul-Mateen are running from the cops in an ambulance, which is carrying the police officer that Abdul-Mateen's character shot.
It gets nuts, as you can imagine with a Bay movie.
"The Batman" (March 4, 2022)
There wasn't any new Batman footage but seeing the trailer on the big screen was a lot of fun. We got a good feeling about Robert Pattinson as Batman.
"Bullet Train" (April 8, 2022)
We only got a small snippet of this action movie from the director of "Deadpool 2" and "Hobbs & Shaw," but it featured Brad Pitt kicking butt so it was worth it.
The movie stars Pitt as one of five assassins who are on a Japanese bullet train and all have similar missions.
We can't wait to see Pitt in a movie helmed by David Leitch, one of the creators of the "John Wick" franchise.
"The Northman" (April 8, 2022)
After acclaimed (also twisted) movies like "The Witch" and "The Lighthouse," you should expect the unexpected with director Robert Eggers.
The footage of this movie was the most beautiful of all CinemaCon.
Alexander Skarsgård plays a Viking prince out for revenge after the death of his father. The movie also stars Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke, and Anya Taylor-Joy.
The movie is bloody, unforgiving, yet gorgeous to watch. And we only saw a few minutes of footage. We can only imagine what the whole movie is like.
"Thirteen Lives" (April 15, 2022)
One of the most moving trailers was this Ron Howard look at the 2018 Thai cave rescue that captivated the world.
Viggo Mortensen, Colin Farrell, and Joel Edgerton star as the cave divers who go through extraordinary length to save twelve kids and their soccer coach.
"The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent" (April 22, 2022)
This is one Nicolas Cage fans will definitely not miss.
Here he plays a version of himself who quits acting and winds up accepting a personal appearance gig because it's so lucrative. The man who hires him, played by "The Mandalorian" star Pedro Pascal, turns out to be a fugitive from justice and it leads to Cage having to be a real-life hero to take him down.
The callbacks to the Cage classics are plentiful. We still can't believe Cage was down to do this.
"Mission Impossible 7" (May 27, 2022)
Tom Cruise once more pushes the boundaries of actors who do their own stunts.
Paramount showed the CinemaCon audience "M:I 7" footage of Cruise driving a motorcycle off a cliff and then BASE jumping during the free fall.
We can only imagine what else Cruise has in store for us in this movie.
"Jurassic World: Dominion" (June 10, 2022)
We also saw the first footage of the anticipated final chapter in the "Jurassic" franchise.
Along with showcasing the stars of the original movie being involved — Sam Neill and Laura Dern — we also saw footage of dinosaurs roaming around the modern world and scaring the heck out of everyone.
