I am back with the second part of the movies I would like to see in 2017! I’m starting to find a way to put up both posts to start their sections, however I’ve found it’s best to not be too organized because whenever I go to look up each one on YouTube, sometimes the trailers are not available and then I feel stuck. I only share the ones that trailers out, that way in case other people have no idea what I am talking about, they can watch it afterwards!
Honestly though, I have only seen two of the films I listed at the beginning of the year. They are Beauty and the Beast (my sister has claimed Belle as her favorite and yet she did not watch it with us – she hates British accents!) and the other was Finding Dory. This spring has been a roller coaster so I haven’t pushed to see anything. It’ll be around September I might actually get to make a dent into my list, at least I’m hoping so! If you would like what I added onto part 1 you can read that here and I hope you enjoy this list too!
Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 17th) starring Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr. and Zendaya
I would be lying if I didn’t said I’m still unsure about this film. Granted I loved the fact that Iron Man brought Spider-Man into the whole fighting scenes in Captain America: Civil War but I still love Jake Gyllenhaal as Peter Parker. I mean, he looked like nerd, not so much on the high school student but you get the gist. I’m actually surprised with myself though because sometimes I like the reboots, but I am just iffy about this one. I’m also not a big fan of Tony Stark either so that might be another reason why I’m feeling all weary about it.
Atomic Blonde (July 17th) starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, and John Goodman
I saw this trailer back in late March and fell in love with it immediately. I saw it after bawling my eyes for the new Logan trailer. I still don’t know what it’s about, but I love action movies especially with badass characters in it. Let’s be honest though, anything where Charlize is kicking somebody’s ass is usually pretty damn good! And that’s enough for me. Oh, and James McAvoy’s in it too!
The Dark Tower (August 4th) starring Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey)
As I’ve heard on Twitter that this was based off of a book? It looks like it was, that’s for sure! I found it to be interesting that Idris is essentially the “good” guy and Matthew McConaughey’s character isn’t. I mean, these two are often flip flopped in their roles but I like it though. I think it looks pretty interesting!
Detroit (August 4th) starring John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, and Kaitlyn Dever)
I was unaware of this film until I actually saw it on Wikipedia’s list of films being released this year. It has the feel of a biopic essentially, based on a true story of what happened in Detroit in the early 70’s. A section sadly I’m not familiar with so I’m betting I would enjoy this!
Wind River (August 4th) starring Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner
Sometimes on the captions included on YouTube, beside the actors that’s featured on the film can say what category the movie is in, well I had been seeing “thriller” for the past two weeks and then I watched the trailer and thought it was interesting. I think it’s like a drama/thriller, kind of like Side Effects and The Girl On The Train.
The Glass Castle (August 11th) starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts
I read either at the end of the actual trailer or somewhere that this film was based off a book, so I think I might hold out seeing it and read the book first, but it does look good. Again, Woody Harrelson is in it so it’s going to be good!
The Hitman’s Bodyguard (August 18th) starring Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, and Gary Oldman
This looks like it’s going to be absolutely hilarious! Let’s be honest both Ryan Reynolds and Sam Jackson are funny as crap, but it’s a comedy mixed in with an action film. I’ve found a few of these over the years that seem like a good mix but I end up don’t liking as much as I thought I would, so despite thinking it looks good, I can’t say anything indefinitely that it’ll be great, I’m hoping for it nevertheless though!
American Assassin (September 15th) starring Dylan O’Brien, Michael Keaton, and Sanaa Lathan
I think I just put this film on here because of Dylan O’Brien and Sanaa Lathan. I do love these types of movies though, they put a LOT of fight scenes in and gives you an insight into the mindset of training too! Just watching the trailer made me want to know more, and then I found out it was based off a book and that kind of made me want to purchase the book first, like the other one!
Victoria and Adbul (September 22nd) starring Judi Dench and Ali Fazal
I think I might’ve started a problem. If I saw this, I would literally have seen three different women play Queen Victoria in the last year or so! Emily Blunt was in The Young Victoria (2009) Judi Dench plays the older version of her after the death of her beloved Prince Albert in this film, and last year I started watching Victoria on PBS played by Jenna Coleman. I still think this looks very interesting though!
Justice League (November 17th) starring Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher
I had to hold off on putting this one on the first post. I was very shocked to see the trailer of this like a week after they released the first promo for Wonder Woman in February I think. I’m still unsure about Ezra Miller playing the movie screen version of The Flash. I still think Grant Gustin would have been better, but you know! I’m excited to see Ben Affleck as Batman again, and really glad Jason Momoa is Aquaman!
Wonder (November 17th) starring Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay, and Owen Wilson
I saw this trailer circling around Facebook after it was first released, but I didn’t give in to it because I figured it was one of those sad commercials, which in a way I was right. I still cried but it was because the story itself seems very cutsy and inspiring! I’m just happy it comes out at the last of the year so I can watch it in peace once spring comes around!
What are you looking forward to the most? Have you seen any of the movies I included in the first post in January?
