  • Release Date: July 7th
  • Director: Jon Watts
  • Starring: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr.
  • Details: After Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield attempted to portray the world’s greatest Marvel character, it appears that they might have finally found the perfect person to play the teenage superhero, Spider-Man. Tom Holland is not widely known and has only been acting on the big screen since 2012 but he showed up in Captain America: Civil War last year and left fans with nothing but great things to say about him. He could be the final person to portray the flying spider in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that we could all grow to love in the role.

4. Dunkirk

  • Genre: War Thriller
  • Release Date: July 21st
  • Director: Christopher Nolan
  • Starring: Aneurin Barnard, Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Harry Styles, Barry Keoghan, James D’Arcy
  • Details: Christopher Nolan has given us some real epic movies including Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar, and Inception. He is a director, writer, producer, composer, cinematographer, and editor that knows exactly what he wants from a film and works harder than almost anyone else in Hollywood at creating it. Dunkirk could easily become one of the best films of 2017 just from the looks of the trailer and the cast.

3. Wonder Woman

  • Genre: Action-Adventure
  • Release Date: June 2nd
  • Director: Patty Jenkins
  • Starring: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielson, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis
  • Details: Based on the list of movies coming out in 2017, it appears that superhero movies will once again be at the forefront of the box office. When Gal Gadot was announced as the next Wonder Woman, it did not feel as though it was a good fit. But then the trailer came out and all of the negative thoughts quickly went away as it seems as though her portrayal of the female superhero just might be better than anyone would have originally imagined.

2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

  • Genre: Action-Adventure, Comedy
  • Release Date: May 5th
  • Director: James Gunn
  • Starring: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Sean Gunn
  • Details: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.1 was much bigger than anyone could have imagined and it was all thanks to the perfect casting. Each character in the film worked great with one another. That chemistry turned a good movie into a great one and the sequel should be no different as it has everyone from the original movie but with a bigger budget.

1. Star Wars: Episode VIII

  • Genre: Action-Adventure
  • Release Date: December 15th
  • Director: Rian Johnson
  • Starring: Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, John Boyea, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels
  • Details: After Disney took over the Star Wars franchise, fans were worried that the next three films would end up being a bigger disappointment than The Phantom Menace. But then Episode VII came out in 2015 and completely destroyed all of the negative rumors about the future success of the Star Wars movie franchise. Not much is known about Episode VIII but from what we do understand, it is going to be a wild ride that picks up right where the last one ended.
