From A-Listers to Rising Stars: 5 Must-See Movie Performances in 2024 

The year 2023 was a rollercoaster year for the movie industry, which saw major shifts and movie performances in the industry. These changes will most likely be permanent and will transform the movie industry for good. Changes such as the conditions of the SAG AFTRA strike, the use of intensive marketing strategies to promote a film, as in the case of Barbie, and turning same-weekend releases into a healthy competition that will benefit all movies, as in the case of Barbie and Oppenheimer, have forced the industry to rethink their movie making and promotional strategies. 

2024 promises to implement and experiment with these changes. Some highly anticipated movies and performances are scheduled for release this year. Let’s look at the 5 highly anticipated and must-see movie performances in 2024.

5. Zendaya in ‘Challengers’ 

Zendaya plays tennis player Tashi Duncan in this Luca Guadagnino-directed film, which finds her entangled in a passionate love triangle involving Mike Faist and Josh O’Connor. The first trailer for the movie promises a steamy romcom with a decent plot. This movie will help Zendaya cement her place in the big leagues, along with another anticipated release of hers this year, ‘Dune: Part Two’.

4. Angelina Jolie in ‘Maria’ 

Angelina Jolie makes her comeback to the screen after 2021’s ‘Eternals’ with this biopic of legendary opera singer Maria Callas, directed by Pablo Larrain. The movie depicts a revised account of the opera singer’s final days in Paris in the 1970s. Larrain has directed successful re-imaginings of historical figures, such as Natalie Portman in ‘Jackie’ and Kristen Stewart in ‘Spencer’. Both actresses received Oscar nominations for their performances. With Jolie’s talent, this film is guaranteed to deliver an outstanding performance from her. 

3. Sebastian Stan in ‘A Different Man’

Sebastian Stan transforms himself completely, as seen in early photos from Aaron Schimberg’s psychological thriller. This movie tells the powerful story of a man who undergoes facial reconstructive surgery and becomes obsessed with the actor who will portray him in a stage production of his life. Having a track record of successfully interpreting the subtleties of different characters, this movie performance could solidify Stan’s position in the movie industry. 

2. Hugh Jackman in ‘Deadpool 3’

In one of the most anticipated superhero movies of this year, Hugh Jackman reprises his role as Logan, aka Wolverine. Tentatively titled ‘Deadpool 3’ by Marvel Studios, Hugh will reprise his role as the famed X-men character and star alongside his social media BFF Ryan Reynolds. The two share an amazing relationship offscreen that will undoubtedly be reflected onscreen in the form of amazing banter and one-line zingers. 

1. Lady Gaga in ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’

In Todd Phillips’ follow-up to 2019’s Joker, Lady Gaga plays the notorious Harley Quinn. Including Joaquin Phoenix’s nomination for best actor, the 2019 Joker received 11 major nominations. Margot Robbie did an incredible job portraying Harley Quinn in the past. The sequel is rumoured to be a musical adaptation; hence, Gaga was cast as Harley Quinn. This is one of the most anticipated performances and movies of the year, given the success of the first movie and Gaga’s talent in both singing and acting.
