50 Most Anticipated Movies of 2017: 'Blade Runner,' 'Star Wars' and More

From superhero blockbusters and high-profile sequels to docs, director passion-projects and some downright weird stuff

'The Red Turtle' (Jan. 20)

A castaway develops a strange relationship with a giant reptile in this beautiful-looking, critically acclaimed animated feature, directed by European artist Michaël Dudok de Wit with a little help from Japan's Studio Ghibli. Stranded on a beautiful-but-hostile island, the hero relies on his wits, his guts, and the help of a mysterious sea creature, in an exciting, wondrous fantasy-adventure told almost completely without dialogue. It's a must for cartoon buffs, Ghibli-heads, fans of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales and anyone who likes pretty pictures and elemental tales of survival. NM
