While the original was extremely cheese in the 1980s, horror fans are excited to see what a modern version of Jason Vorhees will be able to do. Little information about the plot is available, but a horror film like this doesn’t need much more than violence.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter – January 27

It has been five years since the last film, but fans can expect to see Mila Jovovich return to the franchise for the first time in more than 10 years to provide the franchise an immediate pick up from Retribution as a virus made by a corporation starts another plague of zombies.

With the success of the Lego Movie making about $470 million in the box office, Lego Batman will likely be the first of many spin-off films that brings back Will Arnet as the blocky Caped Crusader, along with Michael Cera as the sidekick Robin and Zach Galifinakis as the Joker.

    Here’s one that seems to be flying under almost everybody’s radar but that could prove to be 2017’s biggest surprise

    Looking forward to a few of these! As usual, I’d expect more than a couple of these to be more hype than substance, but I have high hopes for the under rated Felicity Jones and her work with her addition to the Star Wars universe, The minions are always good, but I do hope they get someone new on the music.Seems that all of Pharrell’s stuff is sounding the same. The Spiderman franchise could only get better after the last few bombs. Thor should be good just on the strength of the primary cast. I’ll take the rest on a case-by-case basis.
