Here is a collection of notes about upcoming genre movies as I find out about them. I'm only listing movies for which there is a scheduled release date, even if it's only the year of release. Anything without a release date is in the Movies Under Development page.

This will be a continuously updated list, so expect changes and edits. I'll note changes in the blog, so this list should be the latest public information.

They're sorted in order of release date, and as always the definition of "genre" is up to me.

A moving "Upcoming" title bar separates the movies that have already been released from those that have yet to appear in theaters.
