The end of winter is near, and the sweet goodness of spring is so close, we can taste it. Despite still recuperating from last weekend’s epic Academy Awards, we’re so excited for some of the most highly anticipated films on tap for spring. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re in the mood to laugh or (ugly) cry…or simply ogle Ryan Gosling. (Yep, he’s back and singing again.)
You love to laugh
A lonely and neurotic middle-aged man (Woody Harrelson) reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and teenage daughter. Hilarity ensues.
Going in Style
Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin and Michael Caine team up for this 1979 reboot about three lifelong pals who find themselves suddenly cut off from their pension plans. Desperate times call for desperate measures, including pulling off a bank heist.
How to Be a Latin Lover
When a man (Eugenio Derbez) who made a career of seducing older women gets dumped, he’s forced to move in with his sister (Salma Hayek). Kristen Bell also stars.
Best vacation duo ever: After Amy Schumer gets dumped on the eve of an exotic vacation, she convinces her mom (Goldie Hawn) to join her on the trip.
Paris Can Wait
Yay for rom-coms: Anne (Diane Lane) is a married lady who finds herself traveling from Cannes to Paris with her inattentive hubby Alec Baldwin's dreamy business partner (played by French actor Arnaud Viard). Dun dun dun.
No trailer yet
Cue the TV show reboot: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays the 2017 version of the Hoff’s Mitch Buchannon, a devoted lifeguard who has to deal with an arrogant new recruit (Zac Efron).
The Boss Baby
Much unlike the foul-mouthed, cigar-smoking Baby Herman from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Alec Baldwin lends his luxurious, refined and sinuous voice to play a dapper suit-wearing (and briefcase-carrying, naturally) newborn with big plans to shake things up at home.
Smurfs: The Lost Village
A mysterious map sets Smurfette (Demi Lovato) and her friends (voiced by Joe Manganiello and Jack McBrayer) off on a race through the Forbidden Forest.
Spark: A Space Tail
This animated film, featuring the superstar voices of Jessica Biel and Susan Sarandon, is chock-full of sci-fi adventure as a teenage monkey and his friends set out on a mission that is out of this world.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul
Based on the hit book series of the same name, Greg, a misadventure-prone teen, convinces his parents (Alicia Silverstone and Tom Everett Scott) to go on a road trip for his grandma’s 90th birthday as a cover for attending a nearby gamer convention.
Totally cool to cover your eyes
Jake Gyllenhaal leads a six-person crew at the International Space Station that makes a big discovery: There’s life on Mars. Ryan Reynolds also stars. (Both Ryan and Jake give us life.)
A divorced mom (Katherine Heigl) makes life utterly and completely a living hell for her ex-husband’s new wife (Rosario Dawson) and will stop at nothing to get him back. Cringing already.
Michael Fassbender and James Franco star in this thriller about an uncharted paradise found. That is, until they discover a danger so great, they have no option but to escape…and fast.
We’re not crying, you’re crying
Song to Song
The Austin, Texas, music scene takes center stage in this film about two couples—singer/songwriters Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara and music mogul Michael Fassbender and waitress Natalie Portman—who are both chasing success...and rock-and-roll.
After 20 years apart, the OG cast (Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle) reunites for this sequel whose plot revolves around heroin addiction, incredibly heavy accents and self-destruction.
The Zookeeper's Wife
It’s the true story of the Warsaw Zoo’s zookeeper and his wife (played by Jessica Chastain), who saved hundreds of people and animals during World War II.
Chris Evans finds himself in the midst of a tortuous custody battle over his niece, who happens to be a prodigy. (Jenny Slate and Octavia Spencer also star.)
Richard Gere plays a small-time financial fixer in New York who finds himself in the middle of a major scandal when one of his politician friends becomes a major world leader.
The Promise is the story of a twisted love triangle (between Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac and Charlotte Le Bon), and takes place during the last days of the Ottoman Empire and the beginning of the Armenian Genocide.
Based on the best seller by Dave Eggers, this film stars Emma Watson as a woman on the rise at a tech company until the CEO (Tom Hanks) starts pushing the boundaries of privacy.
To keep you on the edge of your seat
The cult classic '70s TV series Chips gets reimagined for the big screen in this remake starring Dax Shepard and Michael Peña as two buddy cop California highway patrolmen tooling around L.A.
Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Banks and Bill Hader star in the remake of this Saturday morning TV childhood staple, and play a group of small town kids with unexpected (and alien-fighting) superpowers.
Ghost in the Shell
Scarlett Johansson plays a fierce, kick-ass cyborg policewoman forced to take a stand against evil computer hackers. (All in a day’s work.)
Anne Hathaway, Dan Stevens and Jason Sudeikis star in this film about a woman (Hathaway) who discovers her mental breakdown is tied to some pretty wacky and catastrophic events.
The Fate of the Furious
It’s still TBD whether this is the final film of the Furious franchise. In the eighth installment, Dom (Vin Diesel) goes rogue—and it’s up to his crew to bring him back.
This action-packed film—about an arms deal gone wrong in 1970s Boston—stars Oscar winner Brie Larson (she’s BACK!) and Armie Hammer.
The Lost City of Z
It’s the true-life tale of British explorer Colonel Percival Fawcett (played by Charlie Hunnam), who went missing in the Amazon in the 1920s. (Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller also star.)
Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2
Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is back for another intergalactic quest—and so is the rest of his squad, including Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper and newcomer Vin Diesel.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
It’s the rags-to-riches tale of King Arthur (cue Charlie Hunnam again) when he fatefully pulls the sword from the stone, therein altering every aspect of his life he once knew. Jude Law also stars but certainly not as the lovable Merlin from the 1963 Disney animated classic.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
This swashbuckler film is the fifth installment of the Pirates franchise. Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) returns as he faces yet another sea-dwelling nemesis (played by Javier Bardem).
Fantasy and Adventure
To whisk you away
Beauty and the Beast
This live-action remake of Disney’s animated tale as old as time stars Emma Watson as Belle and Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens as Beast. C’est magnifique!
