So I just found out earlier today that Gladiator 2, starring Paul Mescal and once again directed by Ridley Scott, will make its theatrical debut around Thanksgiving of next year!
Based on the 2024 movie list below, the Gladiator sequel's November 22 opening date doesn't come as a surprise...since it would've need to deal with the Mad Max: Fury Road spinoff Furiosa and Part 2 of Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning, as well as Marvel's Captain America: New World Order and Thunderbolts during the summer, and potential awards season contenders like Wicked: Part One, Joker: Folie à Deux and Avatar: The Seed Bearer later that year.
And Marvel's Deadpool 3 will open two weeks before Gladiator 2...on November 8. It's all good.
(The first Gladiator film was released on May 5, 2000.)
All I can say is— Movie-wise, 2024 can't come soon enough! In regards to this year, I'm excited to watch Titanic on the big screen again when it returns to theaters next week (on February 10 for its 25-year anniversary, which was last December), Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania on February 17, and Cocaine Bear a week after that...on February 24. Heh.
