Now that 2020 is only days away, it’s time to start planning out what movies you’re most excited to see in the new year. Luckily Fandango is here to assist with its annual moviegoer survey to reveal which 2020 film are the most anticipated, and this year’s list is making history.

For the first time in more than a decade of surveying ticket-buyers, all of Fandango’s top film picks are female-directed (so take that, Golden Globes). After more than 2,000 millennial film fans voted in the last weeks of December, the No. 1 pick turned out to be Wonder Woman sequel Wonder Woman 1984 directed by Patty Jenkins, followed by Black Widow directed by Cate Shortland, Marvel’s Eternals directed by Chloé Zhao, and the live-action Mulan directed by Niki Caro. The future (of film) really is female.
