It will be a year of westerns and killers, a year of films about films, epic deeds and biographies of legendary people, cementing the great trend of the last 10 years of art-house cinema: its fusion with blockbusters. The cinema crisis has led many of the most important and emblazoned international directors and screenwriters to seek out commercial cinema in science fiction, horror and crime films. The art-house blockbuster has been the protagonist at festivals, it rocked the box offices and launched entire careers, spending great amounts of money and not only to entertain.
2023 will also be the year in which we are likely to see some of the films that were already expected in 2022 but keep getting postponed.
As for international TV shows, no less than two based on highly successful video games stand out as the most interesting productions, along with new seasons of shows that have amazed the public.
Meanwhile, the revolution in Italian TV shows is taking shape, and for the first time, the most sensational, curious projects to look forward to in the coming year are at least half Italian. We are talking about authors who must prove the good things they have already done, (at least two) biographical series, genre series based on real events, and a long-awaited remake.
