Action Movie Releases in 2024

Mapping out your movie calendar for 2024? Allow us to step in and do the job for you. As we build towards the new year, here's your essential round-up of next year's action movie releases.


1. Argylle (released February 2nd, 2024)

Kingsman and Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn unleashes another riotous blend of violent action and sly meta-comedy. Bryce Dallas Howard plays an isolated spy novelist who is astonished to learn that her fictional works anticipate and influence real-world spy shenanigans. Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryan Cranston and Samuel L. Jackson make up the heavyweight supporting cast.

2. Dune: Part II (released March 1st, 2024)

The battle for the planet Arrakis reaches its staggering conclusion in Denis Villeneuve's conclusive Dune movie (at least, until he adapts Dune: Messiah in the future). Expect more character depth, more trippiness, more sandworms and, generally speaking, a whole lot of spectacular action as Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) vows to bring House Harkonnen to its knees and unite the indigenous Fremen.

3. Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (released April 12th, 2024)

In the latest instalment of the Warner Bros/Legendary Pictures 'MonsterVerse' franchise, Titan behemoths and iconic movie monsters Godzilla and King Kong are pitted against a deadly new cosmic enemy. Godzilla vs Kong director Adam Wingard returns and is no doubt promising jaw-dropping levels of monster-on-monster action.

4. The Fall Guy (released May 3rd, 2024)

Who can resist Ryan Gosling? Who can resist Emily Blunt? Put the two of them together in the new movie from Bullet Train director David Leitch, and you're bound to get sparks. Gosling plays a hapless movie stuntman who becomes embroiled in off-camera danger and finds himself hopelessly out of his depth. 

5. Furiosa (released May 24th, 2024)

In Mad Max: Fury Road, we were enraptured by Charlize Theron's steely portrayal of war rig operator Imperator Furiosa. We now get to discover where she came from in director George Miller's sure-to-be-spectacular origin story. Anya Taylor-Joy portrays the younger Furiosa and Chris Hemsworth plays the younger incarnation of the villainous Immortan Joe.

6. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (released May 24th, 2024)

Back in 2017, we bid farewell to Andy Serkis' genetically enhanced super-simian Caesar. His legacy now lives on through his son Cornelius (played via performance capture by Owen Teague) who now embarks on an epic quest to keep his late father's ape tribe together in the face of growing hostility and dissension. The Maze Runner's Wes Ball directs.

7. Ballerina (released June 7th, 2024)

Keanu Reeves has stormed his way through four bone-breaking John Wick movies. The success of the hard-hitting action franchise now results in a spin-off movie, Ballerina, starring No Time To Die scene-stealer Ana De Armas. She plays a lone assassin seeking revenge for the death of her family, and we can expect appearances from John Wick stalwarts Reeves, Ian McShane and the late Lance Reddick.


8. Borderlands (released August 9th, 2024)

Director Eli Roth swaps his usual horror emphasis for the world of video games in this epic dystopian adventure. Borderlands adapts the hit first-person-shooter franchise, bringing us the story of Lilith (Cate Blanchett), an intergalactic outlaw who returns to her home planet of Pandora to locate a missing girl. Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Jamie Lee Curtis co-star.


9. Transformers One (released October 18th, 2024)

Discover how a young Optimus Prime and Megatron first met in this animated Transformers origin story from Toy Story 4 director Josh Cooley. Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Brian Tyree Henry, Jon Hamm and Laurence Fishburne make up the starry voice cast.


10. Gladiator 2 (released November 22nd, 2024)

Were you not sufficiently entertained by Ridley Scott's Oscar-winning Roman epic Gladiator? Well, we're about to return to the gladiatorial arena as we pick up with the older Lucius (Paul Mescal), the boy who bore witness to the tragic yet inspiring death of Maximus (Russell Crowe) in the previous movie. Connie Nielsen returns as Lucius' mother Lucilla and she's joined by Denzel Washington, Pedro Pascal and Fred Hechinger.


11. Lord of the Rings: War of the Rohirrim (released December 13th, 2024)

Set 183 years before the events of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The War of the Rohirrim tells the story of Helm Hammerhand, a legendary King of Rohan who must defend against an army of Dunlendings. This animated Lord of the Rings spin-off boasts a strong voice cast including Succession's Brian Cox. Miranda Otto, meanwhile, returns to voice the brave Éowyn.
