2017 movie releases to look forward to

Welcome to 2017 folks! First of all, a belated Happy New Year to you all. Hopefully you had a fun and safe sendoff to 2016. A whole new year is upon us now, and as such, there’s a ton of new films to anticipate. Today will be a day to look forward. Indeed, there’s a whole slate of titles emerging in the weeks and months to come. Even just in the coming days, we’ll see 2017 releases begin to overtake 2016 expansions. There will be some rough times as studios dump their lesser projects, but look to the independent flicks for saving graces until the bigger films begin to come out, many of which are on the list I present to you today!

Below you will see a heaping dose of 2017 releases that are well worth keeping an eye out for. Things go from a new release this week (Between Us, which I saw and loved at Tribeca last year) to the biggest of the big still to come at the end of the year (Star Wars: Episode VIII). I’m partial to a lot of these movies, with Dunkirk and Mother probably the two I most want to see at this very moment, give or take the new Star Wars saga outing hitting in 2017. As you go down the list, you’ll see a real wide variety of things. It’s not an exhaustive list, obviously, but I did the best that I could. Give it a look and enjoy:

Basically, this is just one big guess at the moment. There’s no real way to tell what smaller films will break through, especially with many of them still in the process of filming right now. This time last year, no one was thinking about Moonlight, for example. Contenders like that will emerge throughout the year. First up will be the Sundance Film Festival later on this month, where plenty of indie contenders will emerge. Last year, Manchester by the Sea first popped up there. Then, it’ll be on to the rest of the year. Sit back and try to enjoy 2017. It should be an interesting year, at the very least…

Stay tuned to see how 2017 goes for these titles!
