Arthouse, Indie & Blockbusters – Watchlist 2020

The 2020 movies I look forward to the most and some of which I also expect to be contenders for my december list of best films of 2019. Which in advance, of course is a little hard to say. This is in no way meant as a list reserved for potential masterpieces, I feel there should always be room for the 'popcorn movies' as well.

I tend to lean more towards the artsy side, but do try to balance it a bit. Usually arthouse titles don't get release dates years in advance, which means those films will get added to the list later than the blockbusters and many of them are at the bottom of the list with a TBA (to be announced) instead of a release date. I'll keep updating the list as we go along.

Note: the dates are for personal reference, as they are (Dutch whenever possible) release dates.
