Read on to see our Year in Review list and get your tickets for the titles still playing at an AMC theatre near you.

GET OUT

GET OUT is a timely thriller-drama about race, relationships, and macro- and micro-aggressions (e.g., “If I could, I would have voted for Obama for a third term”).

Before GET OUT, writer-director Jordan Peele was best known for the sketch comedy series Key & Peele; however, his debut film is far from funny, leading to confusion and controversy around its Golden Globe nominations for Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy (Daniel Kaluuya).

According to Peele, the film can’t be pinned down to one genre: “Call it what you want, but the movie is an expression of my truth, my experience, the experiences of a lot of black people and minorities. Anyone who feels like the other. Any conversation that limits what it can be is putting it in a box.”

GET OUT is also nominated for two SAG Awards: Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role (Kaluuya) and Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

THE BIG SICK

“A Pakistani comedian and Caucasian couple walk into a hospital room” sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but it’s actually a snapshot of the romantic comedy THE BIG SICK. Written by Kumail Nanjiani (who plays himself) and his wife, Emily V. Gordon (played by Zoe Kazan), the film is based on the true story of how the pair fell in love despite their cultural differences.

For a rom-com, THE BIG SICK is emotionally heavy; it breaks all of the rules of the fairy tales we’re fed; but it’s real, and you can feel it deep in your gut. While many of us can’t relate to everything the couple endures, we all know real love, and real life, is rarely without obstacles. The film’s willingness to embrace the bad with the good makes the lighthearted moments that much more genuine — and yes, funny.

We’re excited to see if THE BIG SICK will win SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role (Holly Hunter, who plays Emily’s mom) and Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME

Wide Release Jan. 19

In Northern Italy in 1983, 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) begins a relationship with his father's research assistant, Oliver (Armie Hammer), with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage and the beguiling Italian landscape.

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME has received rave reviews as “ravishing,” “sublime,” and “triumphant and heartbreaking.” Roger Ebert gave the love story four out of four stars, calling (no pun intended) Chalamet’s performance “beautiful” and “complex.” Will his role earn him his first Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama and his first SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role?

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME is also nominated for Best Motion Picture — Drama and Hammer for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture.

Watch the romance and drama unfold at AMC this January.

LADY BIRD

Now Playing

Indie darling Greta Gerwig makes her directorial debut in LADY BIRD, a coming-of-age art film that soared to a perfect, 100 percent “fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Like many of Gerwig’s films, LADY BIRD is charming, witty and quirky in all the right ways — and it’s deeply personal. In addition to directing, Gerwig wrote the film, which earned her Golden Globe nominations for Best Screenplay — Motion Picture and Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy. Laurie Metcalf, who plays McPherson’s mother, is also nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture.

LADY BIRD is also a SAG Awards contender for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role (Saoirse Ronan); Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role (Laurie Metcalf); and Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

See LADY BIRD at an AMC theatre near you today.

BABY DRIVER

A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game.

BABY DRIVER is fast, fun and fueled by hits from Queen, The Commodores, Beck and more. BABY DRIVER has everything you’d want in an action movie: explosions, shootouts, punchy dialogue. On top of that, the film has heart. Edgar Wright’s balanced storyline allows audiences to root for the “bad guy” — while having a good time.

Star Elgort is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy by the Golden Globes. The film is also nominated for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture by the SAG Awards.

BATTLE OF THE SEXES

Forty-four years ago, World number one Billie Jean King took on former Wimbledon champ Bobby Riggs in an electrifying tennis match billed the BATTLE OF THE SEXES. The showdown was a monumental moment — not only because it became the most-watched televised sports event of all time, but also because it marked a new beginning for gender equality in sports and beyond.

Stone serves up an outstanding performance as King, blending subtle warmth with fierce competitiveness. You’ll love to hate Steve Carell, who magnifies Riggs’ chauvinistic personality — at least, while he’s on the court and in front of the cameras. Privately, Riggs is surprisingly soft, and Carell strikes that balance with sincerity.

His performance earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy and a SAG Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role. Unlike in BATTLE OF THE SEXES, we’ll be cheering him on.

THE DISASTER ARTIST

Now Playing

With the Franco brothers and Seth Rogan behind THE DISASTER ARTIST, you can expect plenty of laughs — but underneath the hilarity is a universal message of friendship, hope and persistence. Director and star James Franco shares his approach to telling the true story of the making of Tommy Wiseau’s cult-classic disasterpiece, THE ROOM.

[incorporate the junket video: AMC_171127_DA-01-IDIDNAAAAHT-v1]

Both the Golden Globes and SAG Awards have taken notice of the film’s dynamic narrative. THE DISASTER ARTIST is nominated for Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy (James Franco) by the Golden Globes and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role (James Franco) by the SAG Awards.

I, TONYA

Wide Release Jan. 5

Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale about one of the most sensational scandals in sports history, as told in entertaining interviews. (The film’s strategic use of levity and breaking the fourth wall balance a tough and violent storyline.)

Margot Robbie is the fiery Tonya Harding, and Sebastian Stan co-stars as her impetuous ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly. Both deliver excellent performances, but it’s Allison Janney — Harding’s acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden — who steals every scene.

The film received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy and Janney for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture.

Janney also earned a SAG Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role. Margot Robbie is also nominated for the first time for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role.

Mark your calendar and skate to AMC this January to see I, TONYA.

DARKEST HOUR

Now Playing

Rather than approaching DARKEST HOUR as a straightforward World War II drama, director Joe Wright removed Winston Churchill from his political pedestal and allowed audiences an intimate look at Churchill’s personal life: from his marriage to his speech-writing process. Learn how Wright created a realistic portrait of the icon in our exclusive interview.

During a time of crisis, we get to see Churchill’s humor, his quirks and his bad habits — but most importantly, we get to witness the master of language at work. Churchill’s impassioned speaking style is the center of the film, and Gary Oldman delivers with astounding accuracy.

His transformation into the prime minister is remarkable, earning him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama and a SAG Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.

THE SHAPE OF WATER

Now Playing

Set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America circa 1963, THE SHAPE OF WATER is a visually spectacular and heart-stirring film about love, loss and acceptance of “the other.”

Though neither of the leads — a mute custodian (Sally Hawkins) and mysterious sea creature (Doug Jones) — can communicate, aside from rudimentary sign language, their body language speaks volumes. Their relationship is not only believable, but also deeply moving. Hear more from the cast in our exclusive interview below.

Whether you love historical dramas, fantasy films or fairy tales, THE SHAPE OF WATER will capture your heart and attention.

THE SHAPE OF WATER leads the Golden Globes’ film categories with seven nominations: Best Director of a Motion Picture (Guillermo del Toro); Best Motion Picture — Drama; Best Original Score of a Motion Picture (Alexandre Desplat); Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture (Richard Jenkins); Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture Drama (Sally Hawkins); Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture (Octavia Spencer); and Best Screenplay — Motion Picture (Guillermo del Toro and Vanessa Taylor).

THE FLORIDA PROJECT

Set in the shadows of the happiest place on earth, THE FLORIDA PROJECT is a drama so raw, you forget it’s fictional.

The film stars newcomers Bria Vinaite (Halley) and Brooklynn Prince (Moonee), a mother-daughter duo living in a budget motel just outside of Disney World. Motel manager Bobby (Willem Dafoe) often ends up in the middle of the guests’ chaos, as he tries to provide a small sense of stability and structure. Watch our exclusive interview with the star regarding the film’s “pressure cooker” environment.

Dafoe’s rough-around-the-edges but compassionate portrayal of the character earned him a Golden Globes nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture and a SAG Awards nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role. He has our vote.
