Having the year kick off to a great start for the big screen only means one thing: the bar has been raised. With promises of childhood classics brought to life on the big screen to much anticipated releases from comic giants Marvel and DC, here are a few fresh pics that we think are going to be nothing short of lit.

Directed by David Yates, The Legend of Tarzan is set years after famed ape-man Tarzan leaves the jungle and settles in London as John Clayton III, alongside wife Jane Porter, pairing Alexander Skarsgård and Margot Robbie up for the daunting task.
La La Land
Whiplash (2014) director Damien Chazelle looks to stir up the indie film making industry alongside J.K Simmons once again in a musical drama starring Crazy Stupid Love’s (2011) very own well-loved pair Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

Pixar’s Finding Nemo (2003) is indisputably a millennial’s childhood classic, casting Marlin, Nemo and Dory as friendly figures. Over a decade after the release of this childhood institution, our favorite forgetful fish is back in a sea of her own alongside Marlin and Nemo in an epic search into her murky past. Taking the lead on this one is director/writer Andrew Stanton, and who better to play Dory but Ellen DeGeneres herself?–DAMN DANIELLE
