A new year is finally upon us, which means that an entirely new slate of films is upon us, as well. From top to bottom, 2018 is looking pretty good, but that doesn't change the fact that January still tends to be a bit of a dead period in terms of high-quality cinema.

That's where we come into the equation. We have gone through the calendar and picked out an assortment of January 2018 releases that actually look like they could be worth your hard-earned money. There are quite a few films to get to here, so let's kick things off with Aaron Sorkin's directorial debut.

Molly's Game Jessica Chastain

Molly's Game

After decades of proving himself as one of the best screenwriters in the industry, Aaron Sorkin has finally decided to step behind the camera for Molly's Game. The impossible-yet-true story about a woman named Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain) who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game, the film is a deep dive into a world of debauchery, deception, and endless backstabbing. It's the type of movie that Sorkin has expertly written for years, and based upon CinemaBlend's own positive review of the film, it looks like many of his fans have overwhelmingly appreciated his transition into directing.

Release Date: January 5

Lin Shaye Insidious The Last Key

Insidious: The Last Key

Horror has experienced a notable upswing lately, and while much of that progress has stemmed from original movies like _Get __Out_and _Tragedy Girls_, we've seen solid horror franchises over the last few years as well. Insidious is one of those franchises. The series has now moved into tetralogy territory with Insidious: The Last Key and the journey into the past of Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) seems to tick all of the necessary boxes that make for a great, scare-filled horror romp. If you're a fan of horror, then it looks like you're going to want to journey into The Further this January.
