Josh Gad, the star of Frozen, Pixels and Murder on the Orient Express, has famously been bugging Star Wars franchise star Daisy Ridley to reveal the secrets of the new trilogy before the movies were released. His most recent attempt even involved bringing in some of Disney’s most valuable players in an attempt to learn everything he could before the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Chris Evangelista: Sundance is upon us yet again. It’s time to get excited for a whole new year of new movies. Unlike many other festivals that arrive as the year ticks on, Sundance is particularly exciting because almost everything there is fresh and unseen. That means you can either be blessed with wonderful surprises – or crushing disappointments. This year, Ben Pearson and I will be representing /Film on the ground at Park City, and we’ve joined forces to put together 10 films we’re looking forward to.
Ben Pearson: Right you are, Chris. Since we’re essentially flying in the dark here, we’re basing these selections purely on a combination of filmmaker, premise, and cast and praying to the movie gods that everything works out for the best. We have no idea if any of these movies are going to work their way into the public consciousness over the next year, but Sundance is always a great way to wipe the slate clean and kick off the year by taking an early look at what might be driving the conversation for months to come. That spark could come from any movie on this list (or none of them – who knows!), but here are the ten we’re the most excited to see.

Last year marked the 20th anniversary of Brad Bird’s magnificent animated adventure The Iron Giant. But Mondo is still celebrating this year with a new collectible version of the titular robot from space.
This year, Mondo is launching a new line of collectible figures called Mondo Mecha. They’re roughly 12-inch tall, highly articulated robot figures, and The Iron Giant will be the first one out of the gate.
