Hearing about your favorite book, comic, or game being adapted into a movie used to be one of those things to get excited about. Sure, The Legend of Chun-Li was a bad movie. So was Resident Evil though, and Eragon, and Death Note. Okay, the bar is kind of low with those, but there have been fantastic and well-regarded adaptations too. Marvel has made a whole business off of it!
From future classics like Avatar 2: The Way of Water and Everything All At Once, to indie sleepers like Crimes of the Future and After Yang, 2022 was a fantastic year for sci-fi and fantasy.
Could 2023 be even better? These movies should definitely have something to say about that.
