Polygon’s most anticipated, least expected, 2024 summer preview

Double strikes, creative pauses, and slow-growing theater returns have made 2024 a quiet summer in entertainment — but that doesn’t mean it’s a sleepy one. Quite the opposite!

For Polygon’s 2024 summer preview, we put a special focus on the biggest releases in the our favorite niches. Here you’ll find Korean dramas, genre literature, horror film, massive art books, little-known animated features, geriatric action movies, and a romcom that’s the Legally Blonde of astronaut training.

We’ll be coming to you all week with the underrepresented upcoming releases that we think are the most tantalizing, so stay tuned!
