So I am back with my “Coming Soon” movie post that I’ll be doing twice this year! Now that we’ve entered 2017, it’s perfectly fine at looking ahead of the films that will be able to check out! I personally love doing these posts, but it gave me something to look forward to complete throughout the whole year! I was really disappointed in myself of how many new films I checked out in 2015, that when I decided to pick out different ones I wanted to see for 2016, I made it my mission to at least watch more than the five or six movies I had seen between both 2014 and 2015 alone!
I am still missing only a few that were included on the second half post, which I figured I would since I had added a lot of films from October to December, even I knew I wouldn’t go out to see them. For 2017, I tried to shorten my list but that didn’t necessarily work out well for me!
Underworld: Blood Wars – Kate Beckinsale, Theo James, and Charles Dance (January 6th)
This was a film that I was hoping would come out around October 2016. I saw some advertisements that it was originally supposed to come out this past year, but it got switched to an early January release, hence the early postage!
I really love this series despite the fact that my love of vampires is losing my interest. I can not have this one my list though! My dad is even looking forward to this sucker too!
Sleepless – Jamie Foxx, T.I., Michelle Monaghan, Dermont Mulroney (January 13)
I saw this and I immediately thought of both Takers and Triple 9, but I have to say that even though the themes are the same I am still looking forward to it. I really do have a weakness to action based movies like this so there may be many remakes of these films as long as the action is the shit, I’ll continue to watch them!
The Comedian – Robert De Niro, Leslie Mann, Danny DeVito (January 13)
You know, I really hate “dirty comedy” as I like to call it. I’m old school, I just like regular, non-sexual, or offensive (well a little is okay in my book!) and I’m hoping that this film, mostly because Robert De Niro is in it that it’s too, too bad.
xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage – Vin Disel, Samuel L. Jackson, Nina Dobrev, and Ruby Rose (January 20)
When I heard about this film and finally saw the trailer, I was like is it even worth watching it?
I don’t know anything about it, so if there are two other films of the series than I’m going to have to watch them but then again I don’t. I mean, I didn’t even watch the Iron Man, Thor, and/or Caption America films before I watched The Avengers and look how addicted to that I am!
Split – James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Jessica Sula, and Haley Lu Richardson (January 20)
Now this is a film that I am extremely interested in seeing, even though I know it’ll just scare the living shit out of me!
I saw this trailer and thought, Blondie is going to love this! I texted her that night about it, telling her she needed to see the trailer – she had already seen it and had it on her list too! It comes out 3 days shy of her birthday!
A Dog’s Purpose – Josh Gad, Dennis Quaid, and Britt Richardson (January 27)
Surprisingly, this is the only “G” film on my list for the first six months of 2017. I thought it was cute and interesting how these dog breeds go to different people and it kind of explores reincarnation in a way too!
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter – Milla Jovovich, Ali Lanter, and Iain Glen (January 27)
I am ecstatic to see this one coming out this year too!! I’m really glad that the two films that I sort of said “no” to a long time ago have now become a beloved batch of films. I am a bit worried about how much sci-fi will be in it compared to the first film.
PS: I have never seen the first, well I’ve seen only the first five minutes of it. I just couldn’t do it!
Tulip Fever – Alicia Vikander, Judi Dench, Zach Galifiankis and Dane DeHaan (February 24)
I don’t know if you want to put this in a historical category, I kind of want to since it does talk about how women were treated in the 18th and early 19th centuries. So I’m more curious about this one and it’ll probably be one of the last films from this batch I’ll watch in 2017 because I usually go for action first than dramas.
Logan – Hugh Jackman, Patrick Strewart, and Richard E. Grant (March 3)
I usually try to wait to watch any new movie trailers until it gets down to the time I am going to write up these posts so I don’t overwhelm myself, but I knew once the trailer came out I would break protocol and I’m glad I did.
I am very sad that this will be Hugh Jackman’s final portrayal of “Logan” or “Wolverine” as most of us call him. I am such a big fan of his that this trailer practically made me cry! Both Logan and Charles are getting older and despite changing events in Days Of Future Past apparently mutants are having a difficult time surviving again! Do they ever get a good decade or something? Anyways, I am both sad and excited to see this one!
Beauty and the Beast – Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, and Josh Gad (March 17)
I’m surprisingly more excited about this remake of Beauty And The Beast than I thought I would! I loved the Disney animated version and still mad that my own sister had to like MY movie and princess! I had to switch princesses after already falling in love with that library!
I keep going off subject here! I will probably turn into a critic when this sucker comes out, but something tells me any die-hard of the original will be too! So it should be interesting to say the least!
Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 – Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Disel (May 5)
This was a last minute addition because honestly I wasn’t really interested in the first Guardians Of The Galaxy movie. I mean, I love Nebula and Gamora, but I’ll be totally honestly the only reason why this is on this list is because of baby Groot like seriously that opening was adorable and hilarious!
Baywatch – Dewayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra, and Alexandra Daddario (May 26)
This is still shocking me that this is on my list… I mean, despite being a 90’s baby I don’t really remember watching Baywatch all that much! I still think it’s only here because of both Zac Efron and Priyanka Chopra!
The Fate of the Furious – Vin Disel, Dewayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jason Statham (April 14)
If this wasn’t on my list, I’m pretty sure I’d be disowned on a big chunk of family! I do think the title is very intriguing because that could be a number of things about the cast or previous events in the last film. I have to say, I am looking forward to the whole switch up between the characters, Dom turning evil and then you have Own Shaw working with the team, which seems bad in all sorts of ways but also, I’m really forward to Charlize Theron playing a total badass, like seriously! Yes!
Wonder Woman – Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, and Robin Wright (June 2)
I have been looking forward to this one since it was announced that Gal was going to play Wonder Woman in Superman v. Batman like I was so happy and proud. I generally get excited whenever I see my favorite people from other films finally get recognition that they deserve and I think Gal playing Diana/Wonder Woman is such a brilliant decision! I was also happy about Ben Affleck as Batman, but we’ll talk more about that later this year I’m sure!
Transformers: The Last Knight – Mark Wahlburg, Peter Cullen, Josh Duhamel, and Tyrese Gibson (June 23)
Last one on my list for the first six months of 2017! I was sent to me by my cousin and I had to wait all day long to watch the trailer, it was worthwhile but not going to lie, I almost started crying towards the end – I’m a big Bumblebee fan! I love Optimus so I’m curious about why he’s so evil. I’ve tried reading the comments on the bottom of this trailer but seems like everybody’s a bit confused about if Optimus is under mind control or if that is him at all. I am pumped that we have both Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson back for this film too!
What film(s) are going excited about seeing this year?
