8 More Reasons Why 2017 is a Year for Big Films

We’ve seen record-breaking movies during the first half of 2017. There was the much-awaited Beauty and the Beast, which, to be honest, quite failed me. Logan surprised me, and the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was even more entertaining than the first. But, I am pretty sure we have not seen the best of the year yet.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Kirsten Dunst kissing the upside-down Tobey Maguire on Spider-man Movie will always come down as one of my favorite kissing scenes in movie history. More than 10 years later, Andrew Garfield nailed his role as Peter Parker, so I was a bit disappointed to learn that he’s not going to be Spiderman this year. Nonetheless, let’s see how Tom Holland is going to seal the deal for his career by playing the part this year. More than anything, that’s really one thing I look forward to.

War for the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes gave me goosebumps, and the final scene makes for a great come on for the next installment. I am excited to watch how Caesar will win the battle against human population. I predict a Game of Thrones kind of spine-chilling war scenes.


I’ve had enough of World War II movies. Or not – especially when it’s written and directed by Christopher Nolan. If it is anything as remotely good as Inception, The Dark Knight, and Interstellar, I’m all in. Throw in Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy, and I don’t see how the formula could be screwed up.


The Dark Tower

I never read any of the titles in Stephen King’s Dark Tower series. But I heard some Wild West vibe action merging with sci-fi elements, and I can’t help but be positive that it’s going to go down as one of the best book and movie tie-in.

Blade Runner 2049

Hearing about the release of Blade Runner 2049 sometime in August gives me the perfect reason to finally see the original Blade Runner movie starred by Harrison Ford. It’s dubbed as one of the best sci-fi classic movies of all time (hey with an IMDB score of 8.2, I’m sure this is something). I’m glad to know that Harrison Ford will still be in the new release, joined by other might forces such as  by Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, and Jared Leto.

Thor: Ragnarok

I slept through Thor, such a shame! I am also not particularly thrilled about Thor: Ragnarok, but as a fan of Norse mythology, this intrigues me. It is also the debut of the filmmaker, Taika Waititi, who created the vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows.

Justice League

Have you seen Wonder Woman yet? I have and loved every bit of it. If Gal Gadot is playing the role in Justice League, it’s already worth it. Henry Cavill is also playing Superman and Ben Affkeck as Batman, so this should be interesting.  They already revealed that there’s going to be a sequel in 2019, so this should at least warrant that sequel, right!

Star Wars: Episode VIII

Last but definitely not the least, wrapping up the year of great big movies this year is Star Wars: Episode VIII. We know very little about the synopsis except that Carrie Fisher came back for this film and had just finished it before she died. I am not going to miss it, and neither should you, for sure.

So, yeah, if you think this year sucks, at least people are still making great films. Mark your calendars early, and have your fellow moviegoers join the party.
