    2016 was a challenging year for many reasons. From the Brangelina breakup to the election and everything that came with it to all of the celebrities we've lost — this year was kind of a downer. That's why, as we look forward to the new year, it's nice to know that we already have a few things going for us — and that includes a slew of new movies to get excited about.

    With long-awaited flicks like Captain America: Civil War, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and even Finding Dory boasting a 2016 release date, it can be hard to imagine that 2017 will stand up to its predecessor. Fortunately, there are just as many movies in 2017 to fuel your nostalgia, satisfy your superhero needs, and warm your heart.

    2017 promises to be a year for movies everyone can enjoy. In addition to a few highly anticipated sequels, we're also getting original films that will no doubt be the talk of Hollywood upon release. Whether you're a Disney buff dying to see the latest live-action version of your favorite animated movie or a cinephile looking for the next buzzed-about indie, there's guaranteed to be a movie you'll love in 2017.

    Split (January 20)

    M. Night Shyamalan's latest horror movie stars James McAvoy as a man with dissociative identity disorder who kidnaps three teenage girls. Terrifying? Totally, but it's when the 24th personality, "The Beast," begins to emerge that things get really, really bad. In addition to a classic Shyamalan twist (come on, you know it's coming), check out this film for newly minted horror queen Anya Taylor-Joy, who previously starred in the acclaimed The Witch.

    A Dog's Purpose (January 27)

    That evil videotape is back, except this time, it's available via streaming video. Perhaps the only time Netflix is a negative thing.

    The LEGO Batman Movie (February 10)

    Need a break from these dark DC Comics movies? The follow-up to the much-loved LEGO Movie puts a quirky spin on this toy story. Also, Barbara Gordon is the new police commissioner, which might just be an apology for the weirdness that was her role in the big-screen adaptation of The Killing Joke.
