MoviefiedNYC Opening in January

1 22 PicMonkey Collage

January is certainly rolling out a bit slowly film wise this year, but that just gives us all more time to catch up with the big awards contenders (The Revenant, Lady in The Van and Spotlight) that are expanding this month. Don’t get me wrong there are a few movies that have caught my eye (Mojave, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi and Synchronicity ) that I do plan to catch up with.So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.
