It’s time to get excited about the upcoming science-fiction movies scheduled for release in 2020. Many hotly-anticipated films are making their way to cinemas in the new year. Here are three of the best that you will undoubtedly want to check out.
Artemis Fowl follows 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he finds himself in a battle of strength and cunning against a powerful, hidden race of fairies who may be behind his father’s disappearance.
Artemis Fowl will be in theaters on August 9, 2019.
Disney’s Artemis Fowl – directed by Kenneth Branagh – has begun production.
Artemis Fowl will film in England, Northern Ireland and Ho Chi Minh City. The book was adapted for the screen by award-winning playwright Conor McPherson.
Eoin Colfer’s 12-year old criminal genius, Artemis Fowl is being developed as a movie.

This story is for everyone and there is no one better than Disney to make a film that will excite people young and old.”
