Since 2020 wasn’t at all a normal year and had enough effect on every life aspect, undoubtedly the cinema industry had its share of loss. Many projects paused and already finalized movies were postponed to 2021. So let’s have a look at the movies that we are going to witness this year:

Wa’fet Regala

A comedy movie that we think is going to be good, with that bunch of loved actors along with the Writer Haitham Dabour, who wrote Photocopy and Eyar Nary before. It seems like the producers decided to respond to the audience’s demand by giving Mohamed Sallam the attention he deserves. They played it smart by including some mighties like Maged El-Kedwany, Baioumy Fouad, Sayed Ragab, and Sherif El-Desouky. The trailer makes you tuned to join such company on their trip.

Saber w Rady

Since El Sobky production’s first release of the movie’s trailer, it got hugely subjected to much criticism. Well, the story is obviously taken from the great French “The Intouchables 2011”, but is it the only Egyptian movie to be inspired by another foreign story? Of course not, think of Ahmed Mekky’s strongest hits. So why prejudging? The movie is currently airing in theatres.

Keira Wel Gen

We believe this movie to be the most anticipated one for this year, and that’s due to many reasons. Firstly, the cast has those two megastars together for the first time; Kareem Abdel-Aziz and Ahmed Ezz along with Hend Sabry, Sayed Ragab, Amina Khalil, and Asmaa Aboulyazeed. Secondly, the story is taken from Ahmed Mourad’s novel 1919, whose adaptations have proved to be massively successful. Also, the several delays in the movie’s releasing that have made the audience more and more tuned.

Elyoum Elsabea

Ahl Elkahf

Yes, this novel of Tawfik Elhakim. And yes, it’s about the Quranic Sura story of those people who entered the cave and got out after 309 years. The moviemakers had to take Al-Azhar’s approval before starting the project. The movie is starring 16 actors including Khaled Elnabawy, Mahmoud Hemeida, Ghada Adel, Mohamed Mamdouh, Mostafa Fahmy, Mostafa Khater, and many more. It seems like we are going to witness something HUGE.



The movie goes under the thriller genre that Ahmed Ezz was mostly popular with. It tackles the information war issue and online stealing. The action is apparently prominent in the movie with Ahmed Fahmy playing the villain. The cast includes Mahmoud Hemeida, Carmen Bseibas, and Mostafa Khater.


Ahmed El-Sakka is coming back this year after his last movie “Horob Edterary, 2017”. His duet with Mona Zaki –whose last movie was “Men 30 Sana, 2016”- that we adore is coming back as well. The movie’s writer Mohamed Nayer said that the movie is going to introduce a new kind of action to Egyptian cinema. Also, Dhafer Al-Abedin is playing the villain in the story.



Peter Mimi’s new project is definitely going to be something different. The movie is science-related and a “new world” was mentioned in a suspense flavor. The movie is starring Karim Mahmoud Abdel-Aziz and Eyad Nassar.

Alba’d La Yazhab Lel Ma’zoun Marteen

We are gladly witnessing what Kareem Abdel-Aziz has mentioned before concerning being present all the time and not pausing his work to track previous movies’ success. This is his second movie this year but in the comedy genre, with Dina El-Sherbiny, Maged Elkedwany, Baioumy Fouad, and a bunch of honor guests.


30 Mares

The movie’s story is psychodrama. The movie’s events swing between reality and dreams as the protagonist, Ahmed El-Fishawy is having a kind of special mental condition. Khaled Elsawy, Dina Elsherbiny, Sabry Fawaz, Asmaa Aboulyazeed, and Ahmed Khaled Saleh are accompanying him.


Thanya Wahda

This one is a rom-com between Mostafa Khater and Dina El-Sherbiny. The bizarre poster is kind of funny and exciting. Despite some people’s comments on the resemblance between it and the Indian “Zero 2018” poster, we still believe there is a fine idea behind it. Mahmoud Hemeida, Wizo, Sawsan Badr, and Osos are taking part in the movie.


The movie is telling the story of one of the intelligence files about kidnapping an Egyptian citizen in an action-suspense atmosphere. Here Ahmed El-Sakka is in front of Hend Sabry again after El-Gezira and Ibrahim El-Abyad. The movie is also starring Sherif Mounir, Qousay Kholy, and Diab along with some honor guests.


Taht Tahdeed Elselah

The cast of the movie includes Hassan Alraddad, Mai Omar, Fathy Abdelwahab, Amr Abdelgelil, Reham Abdelghafour, and Baioumy Fouad. Unfortunately, we still don’t have further info about the project but the movie’s Writer, Ayman Bahgat Amar has tweeted before that he will announce more updates later.


It seems like the year is perfectly saturated with fine movies. We hope they don’t have to postpone them more due to many circumstances but especially covid-19’s second wave.
