Happy New Year! And so the curtain closes on another decade. But as we say goodbye to the 2010s, we must now look forward to 2020 and what it holds in store for us all – which, by the looks of it, is quite a lot.
From major sporting events and elections to blockbuster film releases and – dare I say it – Brexit, the next 12 months are jam-packed.
So, as you wake bleary-eyed from your drunken stupor and attempt to shake off the hangover from hell, let’s have a run through it all.
How about we start of with the world of entertainment; what big releases are set to head our way?
Well, from today, you can watch Guy Ritchie’s long-awaited gangster flick The Gentlemen, starring Matthew McConaughey and Hugh Grant.
And that’s not all – January is a busy year for TV and film, with war epic 1917 (10 Jan), Netflix teen comedy Sex Education and Will Smith’s iconic buddy cop movie Bad Boys III (both 17 Jan), all landing in the opening month of the year.
But that’s not it, Sonic The Hedgehog Movie (14 Feb), A Quiet Place 2 (20 March), and James Bond: A Time To Die (3 April) are all set for release over the next few months.
Away from the world of film, this year looks set to be a massive one for sport.
Do you you all remember the summer of 2018? Of course you do; when the sun never seemed to set, you could wear shorts to work, and England almost brought it home. It was a magical time.
Well, while we can’t guarantee the good weather or England actually bringing it home, what we can tell you is that the European Championships kick off in Rome on 12 June and that ‘Arry and the boys will do their best.
But if football isn’t your bag, don’t worry – the world of athletics has got you covered, with the Olympics being held in Tokyo, Japan, from 24 July until 9 August.
Amid all the excitement, 2020 is also a big year for politics, with the UK officially set to leave the European Union on 31 January, ending a 46-year relationship with the union and moving into a transition period. If there is no extension and a deal is struck, a host of new rules and regulations will come into force from 31 December 2020.
Across the pond, the United States will go to the polls in November as they elect a new president, with Donald Trump looking to secure a second term in the oval office.
However, with the prospect of impeachment still hanging over the 73-year-old Trump, it’s not certain whether or not he will even be able to stand.
These are just a few highlights of things to come over the next 12 months.
