2017 Movies that we eagerly await!

2016 went past us in a flash. During that time, we have seen alot of unexpected surprises. We have seen great personalities leave us(Rest In Peace), like Carrie Fisher, George Michaels, David Bowie, Muhammad Ali, Alan Rickman, Chyna just to name a few. We have also seen the election tumult of Donald Trump's success among others that have shocked us.

We made a list of exciting new movies coming out in 2016 last year. We've seen great reviews showcasing the success for titles like Dr Strange, Warcraft, Suicide Squad, Captain America: Civil War. What do you guys make of it? While we also have mixed reviews for movies like Batman Vs Superman(Personally, we like it though!)Even Bat-Affleck is conflicted:

What did you guys think of the 2016 movies list, now that it is out of the way? Awesome?

We just can't wait for this can we?ehem...

Well, for this 2017, We'd like to introduce a list of upcoming movies that will surely leave you salivating. Ready for 2017? I bet you are!

T2: Trainspotting

Choose Life.The film that was a cult hit in the 90s with it's hallucigenic, pop, youth lifestyle portrayal of heroin addicts.  It brilliantly captured the spirit of the 90s at the time amongst the youths and in 2017, with the said youths leading a different life(like your writer), T2: Trainspotting will no doubt be like comfort food for the soul. It is one of the most anticipated movies in January. But for those who think that it would be similar to the original movie, Ewan Mcgregor has this to say: "This is different because it’s 20 years on – it’s really different because we didn’t try to remake the film". In another interview, Mcgregor mentions how his iconic character Renton saying "it's not what others would expect Renton to be...he chose life". And so did we.(did we?) 


The Movie is slated to release on January 27 2017.

The Lego Batman Movie

Remember the time when The Lego Movie actually got us hooked on the soundtrack "Everything is awesome" after it's commercial success? We do! And judging from the trailer(s), this movie will just be as awesome if not more! It would be scary to think this might even be more successful than BvS or Suicide Squad so stay tuned! 

Slated to release on February 9th 2017.

John Wick: Chapter 2
This time, the movies' revenge plot wouldn't centre on the death of Wick's dog(but seriously, who would blame him?). Keanu returns to screen as John Wick, a retired hitman who will severely hand his enemies some ass-kicking. Everyone's psyched about this, including this interviewer here. Watch the interview below:


Slated to release on February 10 2017.

Set in the future of Marvels' Xmen universe, this movie chronicles the life of wolverine and how he meets up with a mutant girl who has the same abilities as him. It is also his last performance as the famed character, Wolverine. Fans will be eager to see how Marvel will be handing over the reigns of one of it's heavyweight characters after Hugh Jackman finishes with this. 

In more ways than one, watching this upcoming movie will be like a homage to the Wolverine that Bryan Singer and Hugh Jackman created eversince his introduction in the Xmen movie in 2000. Since then, Jackman was synonymous with Wolverine, just like how no one else can fit Ironman, unless it's Robert Downey Jr!That's 17 years of being wolverine! Farewell old friend!


Slated to release on March 2nd 2017.

Kong Skull Island
There is only one way to watch this movie: Imax. Fans of King Kong, monsters,Kaiju, Godzilla rejoice because this movie features an island full of huge prehistoric creatures...and an impending colossal fight between the King and the creatures underground called: Skull Crawlers. We know, we know. What's the difference between this movie and the Peter Jackson movie in 2005?

Well, for starters, this movie features a King Kong that is HUGE! We're talking about an ape that is as tall as the empire state building! The dude is just massive. His palm fits nicely into the side of a mountain!(just watch the trailer!) So get ready for an epic monster battle this coming March.

Slated to release on March 9th 2017.

Power Rangers

90s Kids will get a taste of their childhood with this movie as it introduces the origins of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers albeit in a modern setting. You can't help but think that this reboot is to pre-empt post 90s-kids with the craze that was the power rangers.

We remember the original movie that came out in 1995, of how the new megazord, power coins and most importantly, the power rangers suit drove us crazy. The first full fight scene in the construction site was uhh-mazing(do you guys remember?). 90s Kids will surely have alot to grumble about as this movie aims to be a different beast with a modern teenage touch to it, not to mention the costume. They look like a macguyver-symbiote-alien-mechanical costume. And, since we're on the topic, who will be the face of zordon? But all in all, who's not excited for this? To us, the most important power rangers, the closest to our hearts will forever be MMPR~

Slated to release on March 23 2017.

Ghost in the shell

Based on the Manga of the same name features Scarlett Johansson as The Major and her band of anti- cyber criminal unit, Section 9. Audience will be dropped in a cyberpunk setting. The Major and Section 9 must thwart a new threat aiming to manipulate an artifical intelligence programming. For fans who are not familiar with the Manga, can expect Matrix-like concept in the movie. The Wachowvski brothers'(directors of Matrix) even cited Ghost in the shell as one of their influences in Matrix.

...So now you know one of the originators where cyber information, dystopian, hacker, alternate universe essence came from. Also, a japanese heavyweight director/actor from Japan, Takeshi Kitano(battle Royale, Zatoichi) will also be featured in this movie....and we've got to add that the trailer ost sounds so good, do check it out and the original music from depeche mode. So stay tuned for this movie.

Slated to release on March 31 2017.

Alien: Covenant

Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men tell no tales

According to the D23 announcement, the latest instalment of the franchise will see Jack Sparrow et al trying to get their hands on an item that can "unlock an eternal curse".That rumored item is believed to be poseidon's trident.  What's got us psyched is the return of Orlando Bloom's character, Will Turner in this series.  It also features Captain Salazar who has some sort of connection with death, or is death himself. Well, too many questions which we can't wait to find out!
