Movies to watch for in 2014

Looking at my list of 2014 releases, I’m seeing an awful lot of superheroes, sequels, and noise. That’s to be expected (the big movies set their release dates early; the smaller gems tend to slip in later), but still, a few titles are standing out. Here are a handful of movies I’m looking forward to already this year, sight unseen:

  • “The Monuments Men.” Potentially interesting subject matter (a World War II-era military team sets out to recapture art masterpieces seized by Nazis), and a terrific cast led by George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, and Jean Dujardin. (Feb. 7)
  •  “Grace of Monaco.” Granted, “Diana” was a bust, but I’m hoping this biopic of Princess Grace, starring Nicole Kidman, might capture some of its subject’s charm. (March)
  •  “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” Wes Anderson’s latest looks like a charmer, based on the trailer. (March 7)
  •  “Muppets Most Wanted.” There’s no way this won’t be fun, right? Starring Tina Fey, Tom Hiddleston, Salma Hayek, Stanley Tucci, and (be still, my beating heart) the Swedish Chef. (March 14)
  •  “Magic in the Moonlight.” Woody Allen’s latest; should be worth a look, not least because Colin Firth is in it. (summer tbd)
  • “Gone Girl.” Did you read this book last summer? Or the summer before that? It’s a terrific read and should be perfect “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”-ish fodder for David Fincher. (I disagree with the casting of Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike — I say Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Charlize Theron — but hey, nobody asked me.)  (Oct.)
