10 Best Drama Movies of 2021 – Most Anticipated Drama Movies of 2021

Elaine chung

To be frank, the start of the year is usually pretty devoid of solid drama flicks. Let’s explain why: The Oscars deadline usually requires a theatrical release early in the year, which means the big hitters we’ve come to expect from the dramatic canon are already out. Then COVID-19 happened.

That date was pushed back later (the Oscars are at the end of April of this year, by the way), which means there’s a whole slew of incredible movies going to be streaming soon enough. And the variety this year is deep and wide. Andra Day is in the running for an Oscar. Regina King is in the conversation for best director. True American nomads star in feature films alongside Frances McDormand, and it’s only the start of the year.

By the end of the year, we’ll also have a new Wes Anderson movie, a new version of Dune, a full-fledged biopic of Elvis, and we’ll see how weird Jennifer Hudson is as Aretha Franklin. Gigantic shoes to fill. So breathe and familiarize yourself with this year’s slate, because 2021 has more in store than we could ever have asked for.
