We’re done looking back on previous movie years. It’s finally time to look ahead. The calendar pages have turned over to 2014, and we have so many films climbing to the top of our need-to-see list. Have a hankering for superhero action? Hollywood has you covered. Are you a YA fan seeking the next Hunger Games? Studios continue to comb bookstore shelves in search of a proper replacement – though a third Hunger Games is on its way, as well.

Needless to say, there should be a little something for everyone in the coming year. And to help you plan out your movie-watching year, we singled out 14 titles we’re looking forward to in 2014, as well as a list of additional can’t-miss movies. We’re putting these in order of release date, making it easy to fill out your own personal calendar. I think we can all agree that 2013 was a fantastic year at the movie theaters. You have a lot to live up to, 2014, but your miraculous journey into our movie-loving hearts can start with:

Remember Monuments Men? At one point in time, a tangible percentage of observers were pretty convinced it would wind up walking away with the Academy Award for Best Picture this year. Unfortunately, some problems on the editing side of the equation forced Clooney and company to push the film’s release date back from December 2013 to February 2014. Will the delay and bizarre release date ultimately cost the film a moment in the sun at the next Oscars? Very possibly, but luckily for all of us, it should actually improve the film’s quality. After all, I’m sure the effects department was able to work wonders with the extra month that fell into their laps. Remember back in high school when you’d be struggling to finish something and the teacher would casually tell everyone they had an extra day? Well, this is like the grown-up version of that.

The larger film follows a ragtag unit of men who enlist as soldiers in order to try and save art from the Nazi war machine. Clooney and Matt Damon topline the project, and the rest of the unit is filled out by such brilliant and loveable actors as Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban and Jean Dujardin. No one outside the studio has actually seen the film yet, but all of the trailers and the sudden release date change have only increased excitement for what has all the makings of a brilliant and slyly hysterical film. Besides, I think we’re all a big thumbs up on any film that figures out a way to take on World War II from an angle that’s actually different.

Release Date: February 7, 2014
