New Year's Eve weekend movie marathons: Movie franchises to binge watch on TV

Warner Bros.

For better or worse, this truly has been an exceptional year. For many, it probably felt like 2016 was never going to come to a close. We are, however, just days away from ringing in a new year, with New Year's Eve festivities in some places just hours away. 

For those that have had a long year and just want to sit back, relax and enjoy some time in front of the television, the major cable networks understand, and they have put together hours of binge-worthy movie offerings for all kinds of film fans. 

This New Year's Eve, weekend networks like TNT, Freeform, Spike and more are breaking out their libraries of movies for your viewing pleasure. So if you are looking to plan your holiday binge, look no further — here are the movie (and in one case, television) franchises you can binge at home this weekend (all times are Eastern).
