Most Anticipated Films of 2017 - Mollie's List
1. Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
I’m not sure there needs to be any explanation on this one. It’s Star Wars. It’s Luke Skywalker and Rey and Kylo Ren and BB-8. There is a lot of excitement on this one.
2. Beauty and the Beast
This is already one of my favorite Disney animated films of all time. To see it become a live action adaptation on the big screen is like a dream come true. Emma Watson sounds incredible, and while I’m a little skeptical of Ewan McGregor’s French accent, I love the casting choices.
3. Spider-Man: Homecoming
It’s no secret that I’m a Marvel fan, but to be honest, I’ve never been much of a Spider-Man fan. I never thought I’d enjoy someone playing this masked hero more than Andrew Garfield, but I stand corrected. Tom Holland has completely changed my mind, and I cannot wait to see him team up with Robert Downey, Jr. in this newest installment.
Until I saw the first trailer for this, I thought the last thing we needed was another Wolverine movie. However, the raw emotion and intensity in the trailers alone have me sold on this project. Is it March 3rd already?
This one is kind of a surprising pick on my part. I actually remember this being filmed around Tybee Island when I was visiting a friend one day. The actress playing the niece is absolutely adorable, and the dynamic between she and Evans in the trailer has moved this up my list.
6. Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Two words: Baby Groot
7. The Zookeeper’s Wife
It’s set in World War II, based on a true story, and starring Jessica Chastain. That is a combination I could never pass up.
8. Murder on the Orient Express
This was the first Agatha Christie book I ever read, and it holds a special place in my heart. When I found out that Kenneth Branagh was directing it and portraying Hercule Poirot, it became a must see.
9. Thor: Ragnarok
I’m not completely sure what to expect with this one, but I’m pretty excited that the Hulk will feature heavily in this third installment of the Thor franchise.
As I said earlier, it’s based on true events from World War II. Plus, Christopher Nolan is writing it, producing it, and directing it.
