As well as being a great year for book releases, 2017 also happens to be a fantastic year for film releases too.
1) Thor: Ragnarok
Release Date: October 27th
If it’s Marvel then I’m interested. It’s as simple as that. And while I might not be able to get around to watching the film straight away (looking at you, Doctor Strange) but it’s still very much on my list of films to-watch. I really loved Thor: The Dark World and while Thor might be one of the lesser critically acclaimed superhero franchises, I am still extremely excited to see what is going to happen in this film.
2) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2
Release Date: April 25th
Another Marvel film that is being released this year is the sequel to probably the biggest surprise of 2014 and that is Guardians of the Galaxy. This world is so different to any of the other films that Marvel currently have out that it’s impossible to predict what it’s going to be like. I adore the characters in this film because they’re all so roguish and flawed and I am super, super excited to watch this film!
3) Spider Man: Homecoming
Release Date: July 7th
And ANOTHER Marvel film that is being released this year is quite a controversial one and that is the latest installment in the spider man saga. I personally really loved Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man and I also adored Emma Stone in the role of Gwen Stacy. But Tom Holland did a very good job in Captain America: Civil War so I’m intrigued to see what new things he will be bring to the character and how he will carry off a whole film.
4) Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Release Date: May 26th
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is a franchise that I have loved for a very long time and even though the films have gone slightly ‘downhill’ as some people might say, I am still mightily excited for any new film that is set in the Pirates of the Caribbean because I know that they are going to be funny and filled with more sassy Captain Jack Sparrow.
5) Wonder Woman
Release Date: June 2nd
I might be more of a Marvel fan than I am a DC fan (although DC do have some amazing characters and films too), I cannot contain my excitement for this film. I love Gal Gadot and the trailer for this film looks insane. I am so ridiculously excited to see Gal Gadot kick some ass and be amazing and I cannot wait!
6) Beauty and the Beast
Release Date: March 16th
Okay, this is probably my most anticipated release of the year and probably the next ten years too. Beauty and the Beast is my joint favourite Disney film of all time (The Princess and the Frog also sharing that accolade) and to have some of my favourite actors and actresses staring in it really makes me unbelievably excited to see this film. Bring on March, because it’s going to be amazing.
7) Kingsman: The Golden Circle
Release Date: September 29th
Kingsman was a massive surprise in 2015 because no one expected it to be any good, but it was. There may have been perhaps a few too many unneeded sex jokes but it was actually a very enjoyable film. Now there is a sequel and the Kingsman are off to the US which may seem like a fairly simple premise but I am so excited to see where the plot goes and the character development and hear more of those typically English accents that I love so much.
8) Pitch Perfect 3
Release Date: December 22nd
We have another Pitch Perfect film, people! The world is okay. I love this film series because it in includes some amazing female characters and great music. What more could you ask for? There is very little information surrounding this film out at the moment but I already know that it’s going to be a fantastic film.
