We are about to hit the halfway point for the year and it is important to reflect on how the year has been, but also look to the future. I did a most anticipated list of 2017 at the start of the year but at that time the marketing for a lot of movies had not started. Now that we are seeing promotional campaigns and hearing buzz from film festivals, I thought I might re-evaluate the movies I am excited for.
Dates below are the Australian Release Dates
Still on the list, still very excited. I loved Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and think Tom Holland could become the best On Screen Spider-Man.
Any fan of Edgar Wright’s movies should be excited for this but this movie looks awesome, the cast is fantastic and the soundtrack sounds great
This was on my Anticipated list the first time round and my anticipation has grown so much that I plan to see it in IMAX (which is expensive).
War For the Planet of the Apes
Still on the list and early comments about the film are extremely positive.
I was sold on this movie from the first Red Band trailer. I love Charlize Theron and the character she is creating. Its like a female John Wick set at the end of the Cold War.
Coming from the writer of Hell or High Water and Sicario, Wind River is a crime drama with a great cast and interesting story.
I had heard nothing of this movie until the trailer dropped and I thought it looks hysterical and has a fantastic cast.
Not a horror fan but this looks fantastic.
I saw the trailer for this and became engaged. It looks like it could be a fun action movie but there is potential for it to be more. The cast is pretty awesome too
Kingsman Golden Circle
The first one was a surprise hit and I am a fan of Matthew Vaughn so I hoping this will be as good as his other movies.
Blade Runner 2049
I am a fan of the original movie (the final cut version). Denis Villeneuve has made some incredible movies lately and they are bringing back Harrison Ford which is a plus.
Hunt for the WIlderpeople was my favourite movie of 2016 and the fact that the director of that is directing Thor Ragnarok. If the trailer doesn’t get you excited I don’t know what will.
Murder on the Orient Express
Remember all those Josh Gad and Daisy Ridley videos, they were filmed on set for Murder on the Orient Express. This has an incredible cast of new talent and Academy Award winning talent.
I love history movies and the Civil Rights movements had some interesting events in 1968 including the Detroit Riots. This movie has a great cast and a strong director in Katheryn Bigelow
Wonder Woman blew me away so me away and with Joss Whedon doing the reshoots I am eager to see what happens with this. I am not on the hype train yet but I want it to be good.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
You have all heard me talk about Star Wars. Does this surprise any one? Rian Johnson has made some really good movies and I loved The Force Awakens, I just really want to see Luke destroy some bad guys with his green lightsaber.
Thats my list of anticipated movies for the second half of 2017. What are you excited for? let me know in the comments section below.
