The 10 most anticipated TV series and films of 2022

In this year’s list of must-sees, from The Sandman and The Lord of the Rings to new films by Fincher, Guadagnino and Paul Thomas Anderson, the ongoing clash between the increasingly central TV viewing and the cinema seems very clear.

The new millennium has been the time when cinema asked itself whether TV series could satisfy its audience more accurately and effectively. However, in 2022, another question will be even more pressing: has television replaced cinema?

Or, in other words, what can cinema do to reassert its status and not be crushed by what can be seen on TV (including great films by great authors)?

In a way, the answer lies in the 10 most anticipated TV series and films, or at least those which we expect a lot from. The most watched will actually be The Batman or Black Adam, films with a very high rate of ticket sales but (probably) a very low rate of novelty and a chance to change the industry or even just its viewers. The 10 most anticipated TV series and films of 2022 that we propose are those that will fuel the ideological, formal and intellectual clash between audiovisuals for the cinema and those for the home.
