So, you’ve sampled all the best films that 2016 has to offer. You have found the force in Star Wars Rogue One. You have fought the battle in Captain America Civil War. You flew the Airbus A320-214 plane with Sully. What’s there to look forward to next year? So many things: 2017 brings new films from directors like Paul Thomas Anderson, Bong Joon-ho, and Sofia Coppola. Even new installments in the Guardians of the Galaxy, John Wick, and Fast & the Furious franchises. Here are my top 10 picks for 2017.


  1.  John Wick: Chapter 2 ( February 10)

the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series.

Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea.


  1. Beauty and the Beast (March 17)

Belle (Emma Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman, is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) in its castle.

  1. Star Wars: Episode VIII (December 15)

Star Wars: Episode VIII is an upcoming epic space opera film written and directed by Rian Johnson. It will be the second installment in the Star Wars sequel trilogy following Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


  1. Wonder Woman (June 2)

After leaving her all-female island, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) discovers her full powers and true destiny while fighting alongside soldiers during World War I. I feel this movie has been long waited for since the original Wonder Woman film in 1974, 43 years ago.


  1. Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7)

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is an upcoming superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy. This film will be produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), the Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) unite to battle the evil Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds). This will be the climax of all the 2017 movies because of this being the first installment for the developers to create.
