2016 had its share of movies. Sure, some of them were duds, but overall, it was a pretty good year for the box office, and an even better year if you were a superhero geek! Now that 2016 is almost done, we have to look forward to the plethora of awesome movies in the pipeline for 2017. Fandango, everyone’s favorite website for purchasing tickets often polls their users to see what they think. They recently asked users what movies they are looking forward to for 2017 and the results were interesting (if not predictable).
2017’s Most Anticipated Movies:
- Star Wars: Episode VIII
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
- Beauty and the Beast
- Wonder Woman
- Spider-Man: Homecoming
- Justice League
- The Fate of the Furious
- Fifty Shades Darker
- Despicable Me 3
Of course, Star Wars is going to be up there. The Force Awakens was not only 2015’s biggest movie, but was one of the biggest movies of all time! The first Guardians of the Galaxy was a surprise hit and everyone’s eager to see Baby Groot as well. It’s actually surprising so see how low the expectation for Justice League and Logan are, though. Both look like they are going to be fun films, but perhaps everyone feels burned by other DC and X-Men movies and aren’t that excited.
Other polls asked who the most anticipated actors (Chris Pratt), actress (Emma Watson), anticipated horror (Alien: Covenant), anticipated comedy (Pitch Perfect 3), rising movie stars (Gal Gadot and Tom Holland), and anticipated character in a superhero movie (Wonder Woman). Either way, 2017 is looking to be a great year for movies!
