5 films to look out for in 2017
2016 has not been a great year for cinema, in particular for those of a more blockbuster persuasion – such as myself. However, while 2017 once again is filled with sequels and expanded universes, there is hope that some of them will rise above the average:
Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2
Arguably one of the best Marvel films to date, rejoining Draxx, Rocket Racoon and Baby Groot on their trippy adventures in deepest space should be a blast!
Ok, so Batman vs Superman sucked, but I still believe in heroes. Initial footage suggests this superhero team-up will be less miserable, which I desperately want to be true.
20 years on from the original (who feels old?!), Renton returns to his hometown, reunited with Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie. The original is a stone-cold British classic. Here’s hoping the sequel can match up.
The Fate of the Furious
Yes, ok this one has The Rock in too, which is obviously a major draw. However, it also has a submarine/car chase. I don’t want to jump the gun, but this could be the greatest film ever.
Ghost in the Shell
Based on a classic anime story about Major (Scarlett Johansson) a human-cyborg hybrid who leads an elite task force known as Section 9, taking on the worst of the criminal underworld. Looks a little bit mental.
