1 A STAR IS BORN
If earlier predictions are any indication, this movie is worth seeing for Gaga alone. In this, the third remake of the 1937 film, Gaga plays a young ingenue getting her start in the music business while Bradley Cooper plays her gruff, older, and more experienced mentor-turned-lover. Fun fact: the past iterations of this movie have all landed Oscar noms, so it's practically a given for the musical-drama.
Kicking off the first film in Sony's Marvel Universe, Tom Hardy stars as Venom: the superhero who comes to be after becoming a host to an alien parasite. Casual. Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed join Hardy, who has been sorely missed in the superhero world since giving us the best damn Bane that we can think of.
3 FIRST MAN
Starring Ryan Gosling, First Man follows that first, fateful trip to the moon over 40 years ago. Flanked by the likes of Kyle Chandler and Claire Foy, this is sure to be an award contender. Gosling's Neil Armstrong is already getting rave reviews, and even though the big finish is obvious (unless you're that kind of conspiracy theorist), it's a reminder of how incredible that first successful mission was.
4 BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE
In one of the most random and exciting ensemble casts of the year, Bad Times at El Royale stars Jon Hamm, Cynthia Erivo, Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson, and Jeff Bridges as motel guests who all have come to the El Royale seeking something they need to find. What erupts is a lot of drama and insanity, and it's not certain who (if any) will make it out alive.
Jamie Lee Curtis is back and she wants none of your shit. Forty years ago, Michael Myers terrorized a town and killed teens. Worst of all, he ruined stripes for good-natured people who don't want to kill anyone. Four decades later, Laurie Strode is going to put an end to it. After a prison bus crashes, Michael is back in the wild, and the only thing scarier than his release is the hell Laurie has planned for his return.
Serenity is still a bit of a wild card because the trailer gives very little to go off of, but if McConaughey and Hathaway are any indication, it's going to be a spectacular film, set mostly at sea, with a thirst for blood that hasn't been seen on the ocean since Jaws went around giving people permanent hickeys.
