Happy New Year! For the first blog of the year we’ll be looking at some of the best upcoming films in 2017. Although many people will look back on 2016 as being a year of celebrity deaths and controversial political movements, it cannot be argued that it was a great year for film. 10 Cloverfield Lane, Deadpool, Suicide Squad and Room were all huge films and 2017 looks like it isn’t going to disappoint either. Here are five highly anticipated films coming out this year.
La La Land
In January 2017, Whiplash director Damien Chazelle returns with La La Land, a romantic musical comedy-drama film. Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, this film has been praised by critics and has introduced musicals to a whole new audience who would not normally watch them.
The first of the revamped spider-man films is coming in July and the trailer has Marvel fans drooling at the mouth. The film follows on from the events of Captain America Civil War, where British actor Tom Holland made his first appearance as Spider-Man. Marvel have been dominating the box office lately so we can expect to be hearing a lot about this film in the upcoming months.
Blade Runner 2049
Coming this October we have the sequel of Blade Runner, released 30 years after its predecessor. Ridley Scott, director of the first film, becomes the producer here and it will be starring Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling and Jared Leto. As a sequel of one of the greatest science fiction films, it has a lot to live up to, but people are really hyped for this one.
In November we will see DCs answer to Marvel’s Avengers, Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder. Following on from Batman VS Superman, also directed by Snyder, Justice League will see DC heroes Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and more come together to stand up to a newly awakened threat.
Star Wars Episode VIII
December 2017 will see the latest Star Wars release. Following on from the success of The Force Awakens and spin off Rouge One, it’s safe to say that a lot of people are excited to see our new favourite Star Wars heroes return. Sadly , as of the time I'm writing this (5th January) the Star Wars Episode VIII trailer has not yet been released. Never the less we can expect great things from this movie!
So there you have it, those are our top five films that are hitting the big screens in 2017. But you can also expect to see a number of other fantastic films, check out some more of our faves for this year below:
