xXx: The Return of Xander Cage - January 20

By the time xXx: The Return of Xander Cage comes out, it will have been 15 years since the original xXx was released.

After the disastrous xXx: State of the Union, which didn't even star Vin Diesel, there wasn't a whole lot of interest in a sequel.

However, in the time since, Diesel has become a massive star, largely thanks to his work in the Fast and Furious franchise. So, we are indeed getting a proper xXx sequel, and it looks awesome and terrible all at the same time.

If you need some more Vin Diesel in your life outside of the Fast and Furious movies, then mark down January 20, 2017 on your calendar.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter - January 27

After nearly 15 years watching Alice fight zombies, the Resident Evil franchise is finally coming to an end (before the inevitable reboot) with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

Sure, some of the entries in this franchise have been less than great, but the first teaser trailer for The Final Chapter is encouraging.

Get ready to watch Milla Jovovich kill a whole lot of zombies and monsters!


T2: Trainspotting 2 - February 10

It has been 20 years since Danny Boyle brought us his classic adaptation of Trainspotting, which may still be one of the best novel-to-screen adaptations of all time.

Now, all of these years later, Boyle is bringing back Sick Boy, Begbie, Spud and Tommy for Trainspotting 2, which the director is boldly calling T2. All of the original, central cast members are coming back, and it will be loosely adapting the follow up novel Porno.
现在,博伊尔导演携原班人马倾情献力《猜火车2》。该片剧本改编自《猜火车》原著作者欧文•威尔士的续集小说《春宫电影》。逆天的苏格兰四兄弟——变态男“病仔”、暴力狂“卑鄙”、弱智人“屎霸” 和堕落的良家少男“汤米”,即将实力回归!


The LEGO Batman Movie

Warner Bros has plans for several LEGO features, with Ninjago also due later in 2017.

But it’s the return of Will Arnett’s wonderfully wry Dark Knight that’s got us the most excited.

The plot will see Bruce Wayne fighting villains whilst raising Robin.

Early signs are it’s going to tap into the tongue-in-cheek fun that turned The LEGO Movie into such a treat.


Fifty Shades Darker - February 10

When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Anastasia Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance.

As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.


2017年3月3日《金刚狼3: 暮狼寻乡》
Wolverine 3: Weapon X - March 3

One could make an argument that the modern superhero movie is built on the back of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.

He has been playing the character ever since 2000 in Bryan Singer's X-Men.
早在布莱恩•辛格2000年执导的《X战警》中,休•杰克曼就开始涉足 “金刚狼”这一角色了。

Now, Jackman is gearing up to hang up the claws, but we are going to get one last outing with Logan in James Mangold's as of yet untitled Wolverine 3.

Not only are we seeing Jackman's Logan in the future as an older, grizzled version of the character, but Patrick Stewart is also coming back as Professor X.

If that isn't enough to get fans of superhero movies excited, I don't know what is.


Beauty And The Beast –March 17

For the live action take, Bill Condon (the last two Twilight movies, Dreamgirls, Gods And Monsters) is directing, and quite an ensemble has been recruited.

Emma Watson and Dan Stevens are in the title roles, whilst –deep breath –Ewan McGregor, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Stanley Tucci, Emma Thompson, Sir Ian McKellen, Kevin Kline and Josh Gad head up the support.

Anticipation is high: the first full trailer broke the one-day viewing record for a movie promo on YouTube. We’ll find out if it’s worth the fuss on March 17th.


Ghost In The Shell - March 31

Based on Masamune Shirow's manga series and leaning heavily on the 1995 anime classic by director Mamoru Oshii, it's a cyberpunk fable about the migration of souls to machines, and what that might mean for the future of humanity.


Fast 8 - April 14

Has there been a movie franchise in the history of cinema that has defied expectations quite like that of the Fast and Furious?

After seven entries in the series, we still have a lot left to look forward to.

Vin Diesel, The Rock and the rest of the gang are all set to return for Fast 8, and after the surprisingly great Furious 7, there is no doubt this is something to be excited for.

Buckle up, because Fast 8 is set for release on April 14, 2017.


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - May 5

The movie was initially considered a massive risk for Marvel Studios, but Guardians wound up crushing it at the box office, and that being the case, a sequel is on the way.

Guardians of the Galaxy was not only one of the most pleasantly surprising superhero movies in recent memory, but it is easily one of the best movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales - May 26

In 2003, Disney managed to deliver one of the most completely refreshing adventure movies of the 2000's with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

Not only did we get one of the Johnny Depp's best performances, but it also helped establish Keira Knightly as a bonafide movie star.

In the 13 years since, we have been treated, or maybe subjected to, three sequels, none of which have managed to live up to the original.

However, On Stranger Tides was an improvement over At World's End, and it has been long enough that bringing some of the original cast back could wind up being a lot of fun.

Also, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has brought on Javier Bardem as the bad guy, and he is very, very good at playing the bad guy. This is definitely one that we should be able to feel cautiously excited about.


Wonder Woman - June 2

It may have a slightly lower profile than the Justice League movie (so far), but of the pair of DC movies scheduled for 2017 (well, outside of The LEGO Batman Movie), Wonder Woman is the one that holds the most intrigue.

The plot is set to fill in the origin story of Diana Prince, and explore how she became Wonder Woman in the first place.


Cars 3 June - 16

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves.
随着新生代小将崭露头角,曾经的明星赛车 “闪电麦昆”在其挚爱的赛场上早已不复当年之勇。

To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns.


The Book Of Henry –June 16

It is a drama about a young boy (Henry, played by Jaeden Lieberher) who plots to rescue his neighbour (Maddie Ziegler) from her abusive cop father (Dean Norris).
这部剧作讲的是小男孩亨利(杰顿•李博赫 饰),为了将自己的心上人——邻家女孩(麦蒂•齐格勒 饰)从她的虐待狂父亲手中拯救出来,暗自策划了一场谋杀的故事。

Even if you weren't entirely convinced by Jurassic World, Trevorrow's debut, Safety Not Guaranteed, was a great demonstration of his dramatic skill.

If you haven't seen that film yet, do seek it out - it'll give you a good idea of why we're so looking forward to The Book Of Henry.


Transformers: The Last Knight - June 23

When Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters, it will have been ten years since Michael Bay's the first Transformers movie hit theaters.
等明年《变形金刚5:最后的骑士》称霸电影院,迈克尔•贝执导的《变形金刚》 系列首部电影就问世整整十个年头了。

Even though Age of Extinction was a big disappointment, The Last Knight is shaping up to be something that could very well get the franchise back on track.

The first poster for The Last Knight, which features Optimus Prime brandishing a sword, charging at several evil robot heads with long necks looks absolutely awesome.

If the movie can be half as cool as that poster, we may finally have a good Transformers movie on our hands.

Worst case scenario? We still get to see some cool robots blowing stuff up.


Smurfs: The Lost Village - April 7

In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does.


Despicable Me 3 - June 30

Gru faces off against Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who grows up to become obsessed with the character he played in the 1980s, and gets into some sibling rivalry when he meets his long lost twin brother, Dru.


Spider-Man: Homecoming –July 7

In some respects, Marvel's already done the hard bit: Tom Holland's introduction as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War was widely regarded as one of the film's highlights, so the studio can at least rest assured that it has that piece of the puzzle safely in place.

The broader question is whether this new Web-Slinger movie, the first collaboration between Marvel and Sony, and the big-budget debut of Cop Car director Jon Watts, can succeed where the most recent Spider-Man movies faltered.


War for the Planet of the Apes - July 14

In 2011, director Rupert Wyatt gave us one of the most unlikely amazing reboots in history with Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

It completely washed the bad taste of Tim Burton's remake out of mouths, and then Matt Reeves came in and really stepped things up with Rise of the Planet of the Apes in 2014.

Nothing can ever quite hold a candle to the original Planet of the Apes, but if War for the Planet of the Apes is at least as good as its predecessors, it is going to be very close.


Valerian – July 21

A full 20 years after he made the eye-popping sci-fi film The Fifth Element, French director Luc Besson's returning to similar territory with Valerian, based on the comic series of the same name.

It stars Dane De Haan and Cara Delevingne as special agents who carry out missions through space and time, and their travels take in gigantic cities, exotic aliens and Rihanna in a bowler hat.


Alien: Covenant - August 4

There are very few franchises in the history of sci-fi that are as legendary as Alien.

Alien: Covenant will pick up the story where Prometheus left off, following the crew of the ship Covenant, who discover a planet where, seemingly, the only inhabitant is the android David, played by Michael Fassbender.
《异形:契约》的故事发生在《普罗米修斯》结束(10年)后,搭乘“契约号”飞船去寻找殖民地的宇航员们找到了一颗看似天堂般的星球(实际上是黑暗、危险的地狱),而这颗星球上,似乎只住着一个人(该星球上唯一的幸存者),那就是生化人“大卫”(迈克尔•法斯宾德 饰)。


It – September 8

They all float down here. We have to admit, we were more in a lather when Cary Fukunaga was involved in this new, big-screen telling of Stephen King's It, but the story's such a magnetic one that we're looking forward to the new treatment anyway.

We'll have to wait and see whether Bill Skarsgard can come close to matching Tim Curry's legendary turn as Pennywise the terrifying clown.


Saw: Legacy - October 27

We would have thought that Saw: The Final Chapter was indeed the final chapter, but that is not the chase.

Next year, Jigsaw will be returning in Saw: Legacy, with directors Michael and Peter Spierig at the helm.

We don't know much about the plot of the movie, but we can guess that it will involve some people in some really bad situations, having to play messed up games in order to save their lives.

Sure, some of us may be burnt out on Saw, but this is a franchise that has the potential to deliver big time, and it is primed with a release date that will make a movie theater the place to be on Halloween next year.


Thor: Ragnarok - November 3

Of all the superhero franchises that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Thor movies may be the ones that receive the most lukewarm response.

Chris Hemsworth is excellent as the character, but to date, he has worked best as part of the ensemble in the Avengers movies.

However, Thor: Ragnarok is shaping up to not only be possibly the best Thor movie to date, but one of the most exciting upcoming superhero movies.


Justice League November - 17

Originally set up as the first of two movies, Justice League Part 2 has disappeared off the schedules, leaving this one to pick up the threads left behind from the DC movies to date, and provide a springboard for what’s being called the DC Extended Universe.

It’s the one that brings together Batman, Superman, Aquaman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and more.


Murder On The Orient Express – November 22

Kenneth Branagh’s last three films have been blockbusters of varying sizes – Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Cinderella, Thor – but now he’s trying something a little smaller, and potentially a lot more playful. He’s directing and taking the lead role of Poirot in an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express.

Michael Green has penned the screenplay, and the cast includes Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Josh Gad, Penelope Cruz, Michael Pena, Dame Judi Dench.


Star Wars: Episode VIII - December 15

The Force Awakens left a lot of unanswered questions, but it also successfully reinvigorated our love for the franchise.

This follow up has a lot going for it, outside of just being a Star Wars movie.

Will we get to find out who Rey's parents are? Will we find out who Snoke really is? So many questions, and so much to be excited for.
