Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Movies of 2017

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 BogotΓ‘, 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. EvenΒ  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? πŸ™‚

  1. I’m such a superhero fangirl, so of course, I’m super excited to see ‘Guardians 2’ (how hilarious does it look!? SO fun) and ‘Thor’ as well. Lots to look forward to in 2017! πŸ™‚

  2. Ooh good topic! Episode VIII- yay! The fact that this year (even if it’s December) I get to see a movie with Luke and Rey doing Force stuff… makes me happy. lol and Thor I’m kinda optimistic about. I don’t know about Logan, I was pretty skeptical, but that trailer…

    Death Race 2050? I had no idea. and Manu Bennett? Okay so I won’t drool lol but still if he’s in it I may have to see it.

  3. John Wick 2!!!!! My library has the first and I’ve borrowed/watched it several times. I should really get around to buying a bluray for myself. And I agree with you about the puppy scene and I’m not even an animal lover, at all!

    In regards to Deathrace 2050, have you ever watched the original Deathrace 2000? If not, I highly recommend it. It is a good ’70’s movie and I’m sure if you’ve got that under your belt that DR2050 will be a richer experience.

  4. I was looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy 2, because I enjoyed the first movie so much, but when I saw the trailer with Baby Groot I went literally crazy! How cute is he? πŸ˜€
    And while I missed reading King’s Dark Tower, anything with Idris Elba in it is worth watching!
