1 'The Clapper'

Release date: January 26.

Starring: Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried, Tracy Morgan, and Adam Levine.

About: The movie is about an informercial clapper who gets his own TV series. And sure, the premise is promising, but the cast is what really sells us on this one—Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried, Tracy Morgan, and Adam Levine, who hopefully channels the hilarity of his verbal spats with The Voice co-star Blake Shelton.

8 'Ocean's 8'

Release date: June 8.

Starring: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafin, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter.
