List of Top 10 Upcoming Must Watch Hollywood Movies 2017
10. The Dark Tower
IMDB says, “Gunslinger Roland Deschain roams an Old West-like landscape in search of the dark tower, in the hopes that reaching it will preserve his dying world.” The Gunslinger is the first book in Stephen King’s Dark Tower series. It follows the adventures of Roland, the last Gunslinger, on his quest to find the Man in Black. This adaptation will be starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey as Roland and the Man in Black, respectively. The premier date is set for February 17, 2017.
9. Alien: Covenant
From IMDB: “The crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but it is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.” Though this film will not be starring Sigourney Weaver (much to fans dismay), it will be starring Michael Fassbender. The Alien franchise has been going since the 1970s with the premiere of Alien which set the benchmark for what monster movies should go for. Hopefully, this installment in the series won’t fail to deliver. It is set to premiere August 4, 2017.
8. Beauty and the Beast
IMDB reads, “An adaptation of the classic fairy-tale about a monstrous prince and a young woman who fall in love.” This follows the hit Disney animated film Beauty and the Beast from the 90s. Emma Watson will be starring as Belle and the screenplay has been written by The Perks of Being a Wallflower author Stephen Chbosky. The film has been highly anticipated by fans of both the Disney movie and those loyal to Emma for her roles in Harry Potter and films like The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It has not been rated yet and will premiere March 17, 2017.
7. World War Z 2
While the plot remains unknown for the sequel to the zombie thriller starring Brad Pitt, what we do know is that it will be action packed. For those of us that will be missing our fix from The Walking Dead, this will be a welcome reprieve next summer. Most likely it will include some more information on the zombie virus and what’s going to happen to the world that Gerry now knows. We will get to find out what happens to Mr. Lane on June 9, 2017.
6. Thor: Ragnarok
For Marvel fans, 2017 is going to be a big year. This is just one of the films that they plan to release. IMDB states that the plot is unknown at this time, but there have been some hints. Tom Hiddleston will be returning, in spite of rumors that he wasn’t, and there might be a blooming romance for Odinson in this movie. There haven’t been many other details released yet. It will be released on November 3, 2017.
5. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
IMDB says, “Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.” The second movie in the Guardians of the Galaxy series will bring back all of your favorite stars from the first film: Starlord, Rocket, Groot, Drax, Gamora, and Yondu (to name a few). Glenn Close will be reprising her role as Nova Prime, as well. The film is based on the comic books of the same name, and is written by James Gunn and Dave Abnett. It is set to premiere across the nation on May 5, 2017.
4. Star Wars: Episode VIII
IMDB reads: “Having taken her first steps into a larger world inStar Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), Rey continues her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the saga.” Possibly one of the most anticipated films of 2017, Episode VIII will pick up where Star Wars: Episode VII left off, which was when Rey discovered Luke Skywalker and her abilities as a Jedi. Will it prove that Kylo Ren and Rey are actually Han and Leia’s children? Or is Rey related more closely to Luke, perhaps as his daughter? Only time will tell. The film is set to premiere December 15, 2017.
3. Justice League
IMDB states, “Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.” Basically, the film is picking up where Batman v. Superman left off, at Clark Kent’s funeral when Diana Prince and Bruce Wayne concluded that they needed to join forces. What’s most exciting about this movie is that Jared Leto will be reprising his role of the Joker. Though he got mixed reviews for it, it seems like it’s a role that won’t be soon forgotten. Other characters that can be anticipated are Aquaman and the Flash. It will be interesting to see DC competing with Marvel for the ratings next year. It is set to premiere November 17, 2017.
2. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Originally titled Dead Men Tell No Tales, this is the fifth installment in Disney’s lucrative Pirates of the Caribbean series based on their ride of the same name. IMDB reads, “Jack Sparrow searches for the trident of Poseidon.” With Jack Sparrow still on board and leading the charge, the film is bound to be packed with action and funny moments a la Johnny Depp. Orlando Bloom will also be returning as Will Turner. The film is set to premiere May 26, 2017. This is one of the Top 10 Upcoming Must Watch Hollywood Movies 2017.
1. Wonder Woman
From IMDB: “An Amazonian princess leaves her island home to explore the world and, in doing so, becomes one of the world’s greatest heroes.” Following the journey of Diana Prince becoming Wonder Woman, the film will fall somewhere before Batman v. Superman as far as chronology goes within the DC universe. It will be interesting to see this movie before Justice League comes out. It’s excellent that DC is pioneering the way for a female-lead superhero movie. This could possibly be a film that starts a chain reaction in Hollywood, leading to more movies focused on female superheroes. It is set to premiere June 2, 2017.
These are the Top 10 Upcoming Must Watch Hollywood Movies 2017. From gunslingers to other worlds to Amazonian princesses, 2017 is going to have a lot to offer in the world of movies – particularly in the world of science fiction and fantasy as well as in comic book adaptations. There are many other movies that will be coming out in the next year, but these are just a few top picks. Hopefully, you’ll get to enjoy them all.
