2024 has been a bizarre 12 months for films. The 2023 writers and actors strikes shifted many large releases like the following Mission: Impossible movie and Captain America: New World Order to 2025, creating gaping holes within the schedule that gave the phantasm that there wasn’t a lot to see on the multiplex.

A holdover from 2023, Dune: Part Two, and style fare like Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire and The Beekeeper did higher than anticipated, however surefire hits The Fall Guy and Furiosa failed to attach with audiences, and as soon as dependable genres like horror failed to herald audiences. It acquired so unhealthy that by the top of May, some very loud folks have been proclaiming that “movies are dead.”

They aren’t, in fact, and all through June, successive hits like Bad Boys: Ride or Die, Inside Out 2, and A Quiet Place: Day One proved that cinema nonetheless had it. As we begin the second half of the 12 months, it’s tempting to look again and ask, “What’s the best movie of 2024, so far?”

That’s what film web site World of Reel asked its readers in its annual ballot, which lets everybody vote on what their favourite movie is with out rationalization. And to me, the winner is a shock. Because of its huge success with critics and on the field workplace, I believed Dune: Part Two would’ve been the winner. But no, as a substitute, it’s the movie that was in all probability probably the most talked-about on the web this 12 months: Challengers.

That’s proper, everybody’s favourite sexy tennis drama about two previous rivals battling one another on the tennis courts and within the bed room was voted as 2024’s greatest film as of June 30. But hey, I gained’t protest an excessive amount of, since Digital Trends additionally positioned it on the high of its best 2024 movies so far record final month as effectively.

And what’s to not love? The Luca Guadagnino drama was the uncommon film to deal with want severely with out dropping its sense of enjoyable. As Tashi, the movie’s central determine that drives the 2 males wild in all types of how, Zendaya lastly acquired a lead position that actually showcased her items as each a star and an actress, and co-stars Josh O’Connor and Mike Faist, as the 2 different corners within the movie’s advanced love triangle, each confirmed that their previous nice performances in The Crown and West Wide Story have been no flukes. Also, it by some means made consuming churros vaguely erotic.
