The month of January has traditionally been a relatively light one as far as new releases are concerned. As we transition from 2013 to 2014, many moviegoers will be playing catch-up on the films they missed from the end of last year - films like The Hobbit or The Wolf of Wall Street - which leaves little time for new product.
Still, there are a few January films that may be worth seeing, if for no other reason than to enjoy a brief 2-hour distraction. We're not saying all of the films on our list are going to be winners, but they do have some potential.
Here are the 5 films we're looking forward to in January 2014.
