With 2022 on its way out, we're going to start looking ahead to next year with our epic 2023 movie preview, where we'll spotlight nearly every major upcoming release studio-by-studio.
Sony Pictures is next up on our list and we're expecting them to have a much better year next year with the long-awaited arrival of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse! The first one grossed over $375 million on an estimated $90 million production budget, and we're betting this one will do considerably better after all that positive Oscar buzz, and the inclusion of hundreds of new Spider-People!
They also have Kraven the Hunter and The Equalizer 3 coming next Fall and a Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel to close out the year, which should also produce positive results at the box office.

Kraven the Hunter
Sony's Spider-Man(less) Universe takes its next step toward becoming a cohesive cinematic universe with Kraven the Hunter and while there's ample reason to be skeptical, the early buzz from insiders has been fairly positive and there's a good chance it actually surprises with J. C. Chandor behind the camera.
Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ariana DeBose, Fred Hechinger, Christopher Abbott, Alessandro Nivola, Russell Crowe, and Levi Miller.
Release Date: October 6
Untitled Ghostbusters: Afterlife Sequel
Ghostbusters: Afterlife was a welcome success last year, grossing over $204 million on an estimated $75 million production budget, so it should come as no surprise that Sony wanted to get the band back together for another chapter. It remains to be seen whether the film will meet that winter release date, especially with Gil Kenan recently taking over directing duties, but the studio has dated the pictures, so bring in the holidays with the Ghostbusters!
Cast: Mckenna Grace, Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, and Finn Wolfhard
Release Date: December 20
