Upcoming UK Movie Release Dates: When All The New Movies Are Coming To Theaters

After what seems like an eternity, theaters are starting to reopen around the world and audiences are likely champing at the bit to go see the latest movies on the big screen. But with the international film schedule busy as ever, keeping tabs on all the United Kingdom movie release dates is easier said than done. Fret not, as we have put together a comprehensive list of all the major film releases in the United Kingdom along with their respective release dates, stars, and other key information that will help you decide if it’s something you want to see opening night, wait for a matinee a few weeks later, or hold off until they find their eventual home in the world of streaming.

(This list is strictly for UK movie releases. Here's where you can find the 2021 movie premiere schedule for U.S. releases.)

With multiple Marvel movies, the long-awaited return of James Bond, and several upcoming video game movies, there's a lot to look forward to in 2021, 2022, and beyond. As is often the case, release dates are subject to change throughout the year.

Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop barking at the mailman, or chatting about professional wrestling to his wife. Writing gigs with school newspapers, multiple daily newspapers, and other varied job experiences led him to this point where he actually gets to write about movies, shows, wrestling, and documentaries (which is a huge win in his eyes). If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
