It seems all this talk of movies with lead female characters making more money has finally caught on to the head media honchos in Hollywood, and I think it's about time.

IndieWire created a list of some of the most anticipated movies of 2014 and I was happily surprised to find so many female driven plots as well as strong female influence behind the scenes.

You can expect everything from a fierce Angelina Jolie in "Maleficent," the long awaited Veronica Mars movie and yet another Jennifer Lawrence movie ("Serena") that we'll try to dislike but probably obsess over once it comes out.

And that's not all!

Not only is there a slew of new movies being made by women and starring women as lead performers, but a handful of women-centric television shows will also be heading your way this coming fall. The new post-30 Rock Tina Fey is keeping herself busy with not one but two shows in the making, and Shonda Rhimes will soon have a legal thriller under her belt.  And those are just for starters!

What shows or movies are you most excited for? Are there any you think they missed?
