In the true spirit of Sundance, this year’s festival will feature an eclectic lineup of films that have everything from Daniel Radcliffe playing a corpse to a caper thriller/biopic on Miles Davis to W. Kamau Bell’s new docu-series on racial subcultures in America. Here are some of the most anticipated.
Debut writer-director Matt Ross drew inspiration for Captain Fantastic from his childhood living on communes with his “hippie mom.” The film follows Viggo Mortensen as a dad who moves his family out of the remote woods of the Pacific Northwest and how they adjust to life in the real world.
Swiss Army Man
This comedy drama features Daniel Radcliffe as a dead corpse, found by Paul Dano’s character, a suicidal man lost in the woods, as he goes on an epic adventure to get home.
Southside With You
This romantic dramedy follows a young Barack Obama trying to woo his future First Lady, Michelle Robinson. The film centers on their first date, a screening of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Don Cheadle co-wrote, directs and stars as the great jazz musician Miles Davis during his cocaine-binging years on the Upper West Side, mixing the traditional biopic with the fictional elements of a caper thriller.
Directed by the man’s childhood friend, Jim is a highly anticipated film about James Foley, the American journalist who was executed in a beheading by the Islamic State in 2014.
Created by American servicemen, Range 15 was made with the intention of being “the military movie you’ve always wanted to make: relentless ball busting, guns, explosions, hot chicks, booze, and more guns.” The trailer for this film is set to debut at Sundance this year, after its creators secured more than $1 million in crowdfunding on Indiegogo.
United Shades of America
After getting canceled on FX’s Totally Biased, W. Kamau Bell is coming to CNN with a new docu-series that examines race in America through the lens of comedy. In one bit on the pilot episode, Bell challenges real-life Klansmen to “rebrand” their message.
Borgo Egnazia is more a small village than a hotel.

With its stunning views, luxurious accommodations and perfect placement near the seaside town of Savelletri, it’s no wonder the place is popular among celebrities.
