1. Den of Thieves 2: Pantera (2025)

‘Den of Thieves 2: Pantera’ continues the storyline from the initial movie, following Detective Big Nick, portrayed by Gerard Butler, as he relentlessly pursues Donnie, played by O’Shea Jackson Jr. Donnie has managed to escape from prison and is embroiled in a scheme to execute a daring heist at the world’s largest diamond exchange. Nick assembles his squad of Regulators, along with a fresh FBI recruit, to engage in a high-stakes race against the clock to thwart Donnie and his accomplices.

Under the direction of Christian Gudegast, this film boasts an ensemble of talented cast members, including Michael Bisping, Salvatore Esposito, Orli Shuka, Evin Ahmad, and more. Gerard Butler takes on a producer role alongside Tucker Tooley, Alan Siegel, and Mark Canton. The film, currently in its post-production phase, will be released on January 10, 2025.

2. How to Train Your Dragon (2025)

Perhaps one of the most highly-anticipated live-action remakes of a popular animated movie, ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ is currently filming with Dean DeBlois, who created the original animated film, as the director. The story, like the original, will follow Hiccup, a young Viking, who is taught that dragons are dangerous but ends up befriending one, much to the chagrin of those around him, especially his father, Stoick. Butler will reprise his role as Stoick, father of Hiccup, played by Mason Thames. The rest of the cast includes Nico Parker (playing Astrid, Hiccup’s love interest), Julian Dennison, Gabriel Howell, Bronwyn James, and Harry Trevaldwyn. The movie is slated for release on June 13, 2025.

3. Hand of Dante (TBA)

One of the most star-studded films in its post-production stage is a crime drama named ‘Hand of Dante,’ also called ‘In the Hand of Dante.’ The film will traverse a story set across two timelines. The present timeline will show Nick, a scholar, on the run, along with his ladylove Giulietta, from the mafia after stealing the original manuscript of Dante’s ‘The Divine Comedy’ that a mob boss had asked him to authenticate. In another timeline (past), we see Dante escaping from his loveless marriage and heading to Sicily, where he creates ‘The Divine Comedy,’ dedicating it to his lost love Beatrice. In this way, the film will showcase how the two men escape from darkness and reach the light.

The film stars Butler along with Al Pacino, Oscar Isaac, and Jason Momoa. Italian actors Sabrina Impacciatore, Franco Nero, and Claudio Santamaria are also there. It has been directed by Julian Schnabel. It is based on Nick Tosches’s 2002 novel ‘In the Hand of Dante.’ Martin Scorsese is one of the producers and will also play Dante’s mentor in the film. ‘Hand of Dante’ is set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival in August 2024, and a theatrical release date is eagerly awaited.

4. Greenland: Migration (TBA)

Emerging from underground bunkers, they face a harsh reality of a poisoned atmosphere and a desolate world. The film delves into the psychological toll of prolonged isolation and the challenges of rebuilding a shattered society amidst lingering threats and the haunting legacy of the disaster.
