Where to Watch All the Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Action and Horror Movies That Came Out in 2022

After nearly two years of massive change for the global entertainment industry, 2022 saw us experience a period of relative stability. Numerous delays had seen movies pushed back again and again, but 2022 saw us somewhat emerge from the COVID-induced fog, and there were a number of brilliant new movies that hit cinemas this year. A few complete and utter misses, too.

We’re now almost at the end of 2022 and everything we were expecting to release has, and that which hasn’t had a 2023 date confirmed (at least for now). So, let’s take a look back on the sci-fi, fantasy, animation, action, horror, thriller – basically any movies we at Gizmodo Australia obsessed over this year.
