I know, it’s not the real topic today, but I felt like writing a post about movies, so here you go – Movies I am looking forward to in 2017:
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / 05.05.2017 –> I can’t wait to see that one! When I watched the first movie I didn’t expect much. I was over superhero movies but we didn’t have anything else to do. Also, we wanted to know how Batista was doing. And the movie had it all – fun, excitement, sad scenes, great action scenes. After that I became a fan of the director.
I am weird with Marvel/DC movies.. I love some franchises, but others I am not interested in at all. I have never seen any Superman or Iron Man movies for example. No Captain America, no Amazing Spider-Man. I love the Thor movies, X-Men and the Batmans with Christian Bale. Also, the first Avengers movie. I hated the second. I was surprised I liked the Guardians as much as I did.
The Dark Tower / 28.07.2017 –> Well, I am excited on the one hand to finally see it happen.. But super scared on the other. It is sooo hard to capture the atmosphere and do it right. Also, I am not sure how accessible the movie will be to someone who hasn’t read the books. I am a fan of the casting – I love Idris Elba since The Wire and hope he will make a great Roland, but I won’t get my hopes up too much. Please, please let it be good!
Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi / 15.12.2017 –> I loved Episode VII as well as Rogue One so I am expecting this to be just as good!
John Wick: Chapter 2 / 10.02.2017 –> This was a movie we randomly picked and were blown away! Great story, great action scenes, great everything! But that dog scene killed me a little 😦
Logan / 03.03.2017 –> Old Man Logan? F yeah!! The trailers were so great, I am a bit scared now that I will be disappointed. Hugh Jackman was a great Logan, I hope they will never let anyone else portray him ever again.
The Belko Experiment / 17.03.2017 –> It’s probably not on many people’s radar but it’s by James Gunn, who directed the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and I love his movies! So I will definitely check it out. ‘In a twisted social experiment, 80 Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogotá, Colombia and ordered by an unknown voice coming from the company’s intercom system to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed.’ (imdb.com)
IT / 09.08.2017 –> As a fan of Stephen King, I can’t wait to see it! Although I didn’t like the book.
Thor: Ragnarok / 03.11.2017 –> I didn’t even know it was coming this year, YESSS!!
Other movies that have my attention:
Death Race 2050 –> I wouldn’t say I am excited for that one, but it sounds so dumb, maybe it’s good. And Manu Bennett is the lead character, so even if it sucks, I still have someone to drool over. Basically, it’s what happens, when you combine The Hunger Games, The Purge and Mad Max. The world is overpopulated and as a result of that, government developed an annual competition, in which people score points for killing someone with their vehicle..
Jumanji –> not a remake. This time, it takes place in the game. Not expecting much, but sounds like it could be fun. Also, it has The Rock.
Wilson –> ‘A lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged man reunites with his estranged wife and meets his teenage daughter for the first time.’ (imdb.com) Doesn’t sound so interesting, but I watch everything with Woody Harrelson. Even The Edge of Seventeen
War for the Planet of the Apes –> I haven’t watched anything of the franchise yet. But Woody Harrelson… He’s in SO MUCH this year..
So what are you all looking forward to? 🙂
