5 Female-Directed Movies To Look Forward To This 2023

To this day, female-directed movies account for only a small percentage of top-grossing releases. Women only made up 17% of directors of the top 250 films of 2021.

If you want to see more films with women behind the scenes, these are the five female-directed movies we're looking forward to this year.

Cocaine Bear, Elizabeth Banks

Based on this title alone, Cocaine Bear seems like it’s going to be a wild ride. But Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect 2 and Charlie’s Angels) is no stranger to directing movies with unhinged characters.

Nightbitch, Marielle Heller

Nightbitch, a Hulu adaptation of Rachel Yoder’s debut novel, talks about the darker, more ferocious side of motherhood.

Suncoast, Laura Chinn

The makers of The Black List, an annual compilation of brilliant but unproduced screenplays, will be delighted to know that 2020 mention Suncoast is finally being made.

The Marvels, Nia DaCosta

There was a major buzz when they announced that The Marvels, the planned sequel to Captain Marvel, was going to be helmed by Nia DaCosta.

Barbie, Greta Gerwig

It’s a bit of a surprise that in an era of remakes and live-action adaptations, Mattel’s world-famous doll hasn’t gotten a blockbuster release yet. Thankfully, Greta Gerwig is going to change that.
