Should you miss upcoming Sci-Fi movies in 2017?! Don’t think so!
1. Star Wars: Episode VIII – December 15th, 2017
When Star Wars – The Force Awakens was announced, fans couldn’t hold in the excitement and anticipation, especially when they found out that JJ Abrams was directing the movie. The film now holds the spot of the 3rd highest grossing film of all time because fans and moviegoers simply loved it. The film established a new star wars trilogy and a series of spin-off movies to follow with Star Wars: Rogue One coming out this December. Even though Episode 7 was a smash hit, it left fans with greater anticipation for the next installment of the trilogy: Episode 8.
Now with Rian Johnson at the helm as writer and director, we couldn’t be more excited. Adam Driver, the man under the mask of Kylo Ren, expressed his admiration for Rian Johnson in an interview with Steven Weintraub for Paterson. He explained, “Rian is coming into something that we kind of set up and he just took it to the next level in a really great way. He wrote it, too, and Rian’s writing is so clear. I learned a lot of thing about my character through his writing.”
This only makes us more ecstatic knowing that Episode 8 is in good hands. We can’t wait for Rogue One to come out this December!
2. Wonder Woman – June 2nd, 2017
Being a prequel to Batman V Superman in the DCEU, the story of princes Diana will materialize in Wonder Woman on June 2nd, 2017. The events follow Princess Diana as she battles in the outside world during the World War I era.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, the film will showcase Wonder Woman’s origins like we’ve never seen before. For sure all the DC fanboys will be excited to watch Gal Gadot as she sports Wonder Woman’s iconic sword, shield, and Lasso of Truth.
Tying into the rest of the DC superheroes, we hope that this movie will redeem the DCEU from bad reviews because it looks pretty good!
3. Spider-Man: Homecoming – July 7th, 2017
Stealing the show at Captain America: Civil War, Spider-man swings into theaters next year. Being the “definitive” version of Spider-man, Tom Holland will be starring alongside Robert Downy Jr. in the second reboot of the superhero.
With Michael Keaton as the villain, we’re pretty sure this movie’s going to rock our socks off.
So what’s your most anticipated movie of 2017?
