Doesn’t the word “Genre” sound sweet?

Let’s be real. For someone completely unaware of this term, it may come off as something exotic. That said, the word “Genre” has a rather simple meaning. No doubt it is a French word, and it simply means an art form.

In this article, we will be talking about movie genres. Movies are usually adaptations of literature such as romance, horror, comedy, and so much more. The list simply goes on, and in each of these genres, you have infinite options to choose from.

Since movies not only have audio, but visuals as well, it makes them all the more attractive. For instance, reading the Harry Potter series, and diligently watching all of its movies, is a different experience.

Today, there are so many types of genres, and everyone has their favorite one. In this article, we will dig into the three most trending genres of 2022. You would not want to miss reading this article for anything!

Shall we?


What is the first thing that strikes your mind when someone mentions an action movie? Keanu Reeves sliding with his guns aimed toward the enemy who killed his precious dog? Or perhaps Silvester Stallone standing with his six-pack body while throwing grenades?

Every other movie has some form of an action scene, but you can’t compare them to a proper action-packed movie. Action movies were one of the first movie genres introduced in cinemas.

Initially, action was considered to be a movie-making style but slowly became a genre. The earliest example would be the making of historical movies, such as the movie Hacksaw Ridge which revolved around WW2. 

Because of such movies, the audience demanded more movies in this genre, and hence it has been trending ever since. Here are some upcoming action movies you should be looking forward to:

  • The Man from Toronto (June 2022)
  • The Gray Man (July 2022)
  • Samaritan (Aug 2022)


Since the start of time, humans have always felt the urge for emotional and physical intimacy with one another. And in all honesty, our existence is based on this, hence the second trendiest genre – romance.

Romance is not only expressed in movies but in music and painting as well. It is the most essential part of movies. Plus, who would not want their favorite characters to have the perfect love story?

Almost every movie has some form of romance in them. But pure romance movies revolve around the deep elements of love, such as marriage, obsession, relationships, sacrifice, or even revenge.

Romance not only connects humans but allows people of different languages to explore the different types of romance. Moreover, it also shows the depth of human feelings that they are there, and real.

You can also catch some of the best classical romance through cable TV subscriptions, such as the one offered in Mediacom packages. Here are some upcoming romance movies you should be looking forward to:

  • Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between (July 2022)
  • Ticket to Paradise (Oct 2022)
  • My Policeman (Oct 2022)

Science Fiction

Science fiction is another movie genre that goes back to the 90s. Today, epic science fiction movies are being filmed with the help of modern technologies. Science fiction movies stand out because of the technology used to make them look magical!

These movies are usually imaginative, scientific, and full of vision. From trips to space to fighting otherworldly creatures, this genre has so much to offer, and a lot of it is still being explored.

And can we just say that superheroes are not only about fantasy but science fiction as well? Marvel and DC Comics are the biggest franchise of science fiction movies

On one hand, science fiction movies are depicting the end of the world and what we can expect in the coming future, such as our all-time favorite movie, Interstellar.

On the other hand, there are so many fantasy science fiction movies where humans with superpowers are fighting to save the world, such as the Marvel series. Here are some upcoming science fiction movies you should be looking forward to:

  • Thor: Love and Thunder (July 2022)
  • Black Adam (Oct 2022)
  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Nov 2022)

In Summary

These are only three of the many movie genres out there, but the most trending ones. There are still so many genres such as horror, comedy, and more.

Genres are a personal choice when it comes to favorites. Because genre movie-making has become more vast than in the past, hybrid genres are being introduced now. For instance, one movie could be labeled under two different genres such as action/sci-fi.
