"At the beginning of last year, it was impossible to predict just how much the moviegoing experience would change over the following months as theaters across the globe closed, many films shifted to a streaming-only release strategy, and blockbusters got punted to a year or two later in the wake of the pandemic. This year has been different in at least one significant way: It's strange. With movies getting hybrid releases and major studios attempting to make a return to "normal," it's hard to predict exactly what will come out and when, even as theaters open back up with capped, socially distanced seating. Hopefully, that makes a list like this more useful than ever.
The goal is simply to keep track of the best new movies released in 2021 as they come out. Like in years past, we'll update this list throughout the year as more new releases arrive in theaters and drop on streaming services."
