Every January, Hollywood's best and brightest head to Park City, Utah, to give us a glimpse of the year's upcoming cinematic gems.
Why we're excited: This year promises a number of female-centric projects, but at the top of our list of must-sees is Lizzie, a lesbian romance starring Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart as axe-murderer Lizzie Borden and her maid-turned-lover.
Who's in it: Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz.
Why we're excited: This movie got a ton of buzz when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival back in September, and it's easy to see why. Weisz plays Ronit, a rabbi's daughter who has left the Orthodox Jewish community she grew up in, and lives a secular life. When her father dies, she must return to her old neighborhood, where she runs into her old flame Esti (Rachel McAdams), now married to Ronit's cousin. If the drama of forgotten love doesn't draw you in, know that there is a six-minute sex scene between Weisz and McAdams.
Who's in it: Kate McKinnon, Mila Kunis, and Sam Heughan.
Why we're excited: Directed by Susanna Fogel, this raunchy comedy follows two best friends who accidentally find themselves in the middle of an undercover operation after one of them finds out her ex-boyfriend is a spy.
Who's in it: Okay, so it's not 100% confirmed, but after Amy Schumer dropped out due to a scheduling conflict, rumor has it that Anne Hathaway is in talks to take on the role of Barbie.
Why we're excited: Fun Mom Dinner director Alethea Jones has been linked to the project, which reportedly follows Barbie as she exits her plastic universe and into the real world, in pursuit of her dreams.
Who's in it: Amandla Stenberg, Harris Dickinson, Mandy Moore, Patrick Gibson, Skylan Brooks, Miya Cech, Gwendoline Christie, and Golden Brooks.
Why we're excited: As the Oscar-nominated director behind Kung Fu Panda 2, Jennifer Yuh Nelson was also the first woman to direct an animated movie for a major studio. Her latest film is an adaptation of a dystopian YA novel, in which teens who develop frightening new abilities are sent to rehabilitation camps.
I am so excited to star in my first movie alongside someone I'm so lucky to call my friend. I always wanted to be an actress on the big screen. The story of "A Star is Born" is so special and I'm so grateful to Bradley for making my dream come true. Can't wait for you to meet Ally. She has her first scene in 5....⏰
Who's in it: Melissa McCarthy
Why we're excited: Based on the life of Lee Israel, a famous author later discovered to have been moonlighting as a master forger and thief, this is director Marielle Heller's first feature film since her 2015 debut, The Diary of a Teenage Girl, hit it out of the park.
Who's in it: Saoirse Ronan, David Tennant, Joe Alwyn, and Margot Robbie
Why we're excited: Now that you know how to pronounce Saoirse Ronan's name, get ready to forget it all over again as she sheds her movie star identity, and becomes Mary, Queen of Scots. Directed by Josie Rourke, and written by Beau Willimon (House of Cards), the film follows the power struggle between Mary, ruler of Scotland, and her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I (Robbie) of England over the course of two decades.
