Let’s go to the movies! These are the sci-fi, fantasy, action and generally geeky flicks we’re excited about in 2017.
Once again, superheroes and sequels (and superhero sequels) dominate the box office listings. But it’s not all retreads and remakes; there are actually some original movies coming to movie theatres in 2017.
Matt Damon goes to China in the spectacular “The Great Wall“. Pixar debuts the Mexican-themed “Coco”. Gore Verbinski’s “A Cure for Wellness” looks like an atmospheric drama, while “The Girl With All the Gifts” and “Patient Zero” put a new twist on zombie movies. We also join the space race with the fascinating true-life story “Hidden Figures“.
Books making their way to the big screen in 2017 include the eye-popping comic “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”, and Dave Eggers’ chilling tech-obsessed novel “The Circle“. Legendary anime “Ghost in the Shell” also gets the Hollywood treatment.
Acclaimed directors Edgar Wright, Christopher Nolan, Luc Besson and M Night Shyamalan all have films out this year. Even busier is Doug Liman, who has two movies out. Author Stephen King also has two flicks on the way: the long-awaited “The Dark Tower” with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, and a slightly-less-hotly-anticipated remake of “It”.
