Ok so we’re a little in 2018 now, the Oscar nominations are out and we can officially start looking forward to the next eleven and a half months of movies that are coming out. To be quite honest, there looks like an awful lot of sequels and comic book movies coming out this year, which is cool and all that but most of these kinds of films are starting to run a bit dry for me, especially the MCU films, which so far this phase have done little to “wow” me in the same way a film like The Winter Soldier did. Needless to say though, there are comic book movies on this list, so don’t freak out when you see them after this opening. It’s inevitable at this point. But there’s a bunch of non comic book movies coming out too and I’m plenty exited for them! So in no particular order, here’s a list of the films I’m most excited for this year!
While many critics and publications have been releasing their “Best of 2016” lists right around now, I’m going to look to the future and give you what I’m most excited for in 2017. If I could, I would put almost every film in 2017 on this list as they should all be anticipated until we know a bit more about it. Judging simply by a poster or the cast and crew isn’t a fair way to anticipate something until one has seen or learned more. But based on the information we have, or based on the strength of the series, I have picked 20 films that I’m pretty stoked to see this year. Of course, there are more than 20 but having 26 say just seemed off. Will all these movies end up being good? Who knows, I know a lot of my 2016 picks ending up being duds. But here’s to being optimistic and being treated with some awesome films. Here are my 20 most anticipated films of 2017!
The latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry comes in the form of the strangest (ha) entry to date. Enter Doctor Strange, a metaphysical film about spirituality, dimensions and realities. And while the film stumbles a bit here and there, it is certainly the most visually engaging film I’ve seen in years and poses many questions for the future of the MCU.
