2017 is here! I’m sorry for the tardiness of posting up the 2017 outlook post. I’m working on that and just settling on a few little decisions that I haven’t made up my mind on but that should be up tomorrow. However, in the mean time, I feel super late talking about my list of anticipated movies of 2017 and this post is going up later than usual also but its the holiday and I’m taking it easy.
Before we jump into the list, please note, this is preliminary and usually doesn’t include any indie movies because I usually don’t catch on to those until very close to release date or a ton of you have talked about it or Fantasia. Or I’m too busy with Netflix movies to look too much into it.
And you’d like to check out anticipated games of 2017, you can find that over at That Moment In HERE! I’m not doing a separate post talking about this so I figured I’ll just give it a mention here in case it interests you. This post is a collaboration with my Game Warp co-host but our choices are pretty similar with just a few exceptions.
Without further delay, here is my ten anticipated movies of 2017 in the order of release (according to Cinema Montreal site).
XXX: The Return of Xander Cage
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
Beauty and the Beast
The Fate of the Furious
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2
Bon Cop Bad Cop 2
Spiderman: The Homecoming
No trailer yet…
Superheroes, sequels and remakes is what this year’s anticipated movies for me is all about. It kind of makes it seem like a little scary because we all know how these things can just really go completely wrong. While a lot of people are done with Resident Evil or just haven’t really liked it from the beginning, I’ve liked it a lot for the “so bad its awesome” factor. I like the action and the over the top and everything that is wrong with it. I’m super excited for Beauty and the Beast and actually my girl friends are pretty much decided to go see that one. Hopefully everything will work out. The wildcard in this list goes to Bon Cop Bad Cop 2 which is a French-Canadian film that had a huge following back in 2006 for its first film. I have no idea how it took ten years or eleven at the time of release to get it out but I’m pretty stoked about it.
And now for some honorable mentions and other titles that has me intrigued but a little skeptical.
- The Lego Batman Movie
- Power Rangers
- Pitch Perfect 3
- Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Intrigued but Unsure:
- Monster Trucks
- Before I Fall
- The Space Between Us
- World War Z 2
