The Most Anticipated Movies Based on True Stories of 2022
Perhaps it’s our society’s undying love for reality television that has transcended into an insatiable appetite for true stories. For some, we get our fix through an all-access pass to the personal lives of celebs on social media. For others, it’s bingeing your way through true crime with a healthy dose of cognitive dissonance. Some might call it voyeurism, but others might just call it good taste. After all, there’s no greater treasure trove for unique stories than life itself.
Though Hollywood has a long history of borrowing from reality when it comes to movie ideas, many streamers and production companies seem to have caught onto audiences’ unprecedented love of true stories. And, now more than ever, filmmakers seem to be scavenging their way through archives hoping to strike gold on the next big revival of reality.
