Here are some of the films -- big and small -- we're most looking forward to..

Photo Credit: Alison Rosa A new movie by the Coen brother is always a cause for celebration. Here, Josh Brolin plays a Hollywood fixer in the 1950s dealing with the kidnapping of the star (George Clooney) of a movie studio's next big film. (Feb. 5) 'Zoolander 2' Photo Credit: Paramount Pictures Ben Stiller's 2001 comedy "Zoolander," about a male model and his brainless friends, has become such an esteemed modern classic that the idea of a sequel -- even with original stars Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell -- sounds worrisome. The trailer, however, promises good things, despite a minor controversy over Benedict Cumberbatch as a gender-ambiguous model named All.

Picture The Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) and The Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) have to take on the devastating Doomsday. Except to see other DC Comics heroes like Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and more. (March 25) 'Everybody Wants Some' Photo Credit: Paramount Pictures Richard Linklater's new movie focuses on a group of college baseball players, and features a largely unknown cast. Little is known about the plot -- Linklater movies don't always have one, anyway -- but what makes this movie special is that it's being called a "spiritual sequel" to his beloved 1993 film "Dazed and Confused."

Rumor has it that we'll also get to see Tom Holland's Spider-Man for the first time here. (May 6) 'Snowden' Photo Credit: Open Road Films Director Oliver Stone tells the story of CIA worker Edward Snowden (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) in this new, sure to be controversial, biopic. (May 13) 'Finding Dory' Photo Credit: TheEllenShow via YouTube Though few specifics are known about the plot, a sequel to "Finding Nemo" is bound to pull in audiences, and Pixar is still the gold standard for animated films (yes, even despite "The Good Dinosaur"). Ellen DeGeneres returns to play the voice of Dory, the forgetful blue tang, who goes off in search of her own family. (June 17) 'Warcraft' Photo Credit: Universal Could this be the first quality video game movie? Ace director Duncan Jones ("Moon," "Source Code") takes on the popular fantasy game about humans and orcs battling.
