I hope I don’t have to tell you that 2017 movies are going to be freaking amazing. It’s true! While trying to select just 10 of the upcoming movies was incredibly challenging, since I had to leave out some of my personal favorites for this year. But it’s fine, I’ll definitely go see them a couple of times. Without further ado, let’s jump in and count down the 10 most anticipated movies of 2017!
Kingsman: The Golden Circle
This time Eggsy, Merlin, and Roxy head to the US to see what the Statesman, the Kingsman’s American counterpart, are up to. I have no idea what else to expect from this movie in terms of plot, but I guarantee you it’s gonna be outstanding!
Ghost in the Shell
As a long-time anime fan, I’ve watched pretty much all of the GitS series and movies except for the most recent one, and from what I saw in that trailer, the human-cyborg hybrid, Major Kusanagi, will kick a lot of asses and everything’s gonna be epic and cyberpunk. Just the way I like it!
The Dark Tower
Honestly, we know next to nothing about this movie… apart from the fact that it’s based on one of Stephen King’s most famous book series. At this point, the official plot details are still unclear, but you know for damn sure you can’t go wrong with King. The book plot is quite convoluted and full of weird stuff, like other dimensions, and time-space shenanigans, so I’d rather not spoil anything. Just trust me on this – you need to see this movie.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
If you’re a fan of sci-fi stories like Mass Effect, this movies is going to rock your world (hopefully). A) it’s directed by the one and only Luc Besson; B) it’s rooted in the classic graphic novel series, “Valerian and Laureline”; and C) have you seen that trailer? I’m personally gonna be all over it!
Star Wars VIII
Yes, “The Last Jedi” subtitle for the Episode VIII has stirred some controversy already, which means only one thing – millions of people will want to see what’s it about in the end. Who will be that last Jedi? Also, did you know that the word Jedi is both singular and plural? Yeah, that’s a whole other can of worms that the internet has opened.
The movie takes place 30 years after the events of the first film, “starring” a new blade runner, played by Ryan Gosling, discovers a secret that will somehow progress the story. And of course, his character will set on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing for 30 years. Well, let’s just wait for a proper trailer first!
Here’s another blast from the past – Aliens are back with Ridley Scott is at the helm. I don’t know what else you want to hear, it’s gonna be bloody, gory, and full of special effects, hopefully! You know what you’re getting yourself into with this movie franchise.
It’s the year 2024, most of the X-Men are all gone, either dead or … yeah, probably dead. We don’t know what happened, but Logan, Xavier, and little Laura survived somehow and are now on the run from the bad guys with gun-and-or-blade-arms. Frankly, I don’t know what the hell is going on, but I really want to find out. Just watch the trailer!
Just like Marvel’s “The Avengers”, this merry fellowship also consists of iconic comic book characters: Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. Maybe even Superman. Ah, who am I kidding, of course we’ll see Supes! So either way, Batman’s trying to gather his own Suicide Squad, minus the “suicide” part, recruiting all those gifted individuals, to fight Stepennwolf and his posse of interdimensional parademons. You know you’re gonna watch it, and I’m 90% sure it will be better than Batman VS Superman.
Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2
Are you ready for the most anticipated movie title of 2017? It is, of course, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! Peter Quill’s adventures in space continues, as the team traverses the outer reaches of the cosmos in search of his dad, who just happens to be EGO the Living Planet. If that sounds too crazy, just wait until he starts hitting on his sister. You know it’s gonna happen. Also… baby Groot! 10/10, best movie of the year guaranteed!
