Unbelievably, Summer 2017 is quickly drawing to a conclusion. However, for those who attend the theater on a regular basis this is probably a welcomed, possibly even celebrated statement.
Summer 2017, as far as film is concerned, was tough. There were sequels to films no one wanted, animated flicks no one watched and Halle Berry in a high-speed chase in a….mini van. The comedies weren’t funny and the only really true horror was the lineup of flicks released during Summer 2017.
While there were a few bright spots theatrically speaking (War for the Planet of the Apes, Dunkirk, Atomic Blonde and Spiderman: Homecoming), it was hard to sit through for the most part. However, as we look to turn the page on Summer 2017 and at the slate of flicks set hit theaters this fall, all not may be lost.
Here are the 10 most anticipated Fall 2017 flicks:
10. Battle of the Sexes
Emma Stone and Steve Carrell star as Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. In what is like their 40th movie together, do we really need to look any further than the leads as why this is one to look forward to?
9. Justice League
This one is simple: Can D.C. build off of the surprisingly successful and entertaining Wonder Woman flick?
8. The Snowman Strong cast. Freaky looking trailer. Should be a good time.
7. Kingsman: The Golden Circle
This one could go either way. The first one was fantastic, but a sequel wasn’t necessary and it looks like they’ve squeezed just about every big time actor they can in this one. Good or bad, it’s got me intrigued.
While her politics may suck, Jennifer Lawrence can act and the let’s face it, the film looks creepily good, or at the very least, intriguing.
With Jake Gyllenhaal as the lead, you’re sure to get a strong performance combine that with the fact-based storyline and you’ve got the makings of an entertaining flick.
4. A Bad Moms Christmas
This is another one that could go either way. The first one was thoroughly hilarious, but there was really no need for a sequel. Either way, interested to see how this one turns out.
3. The LEGO Ninjago Movie
You’d be hard pressed to find more well done, more entertaining flicks than The LEGO movie and The Batman LEGO movie. Another LEGO movie? Sign me up!
A-list, top talent in every single aspect with this one. Written by Joel and Ethan Coen, directed by George Clooney and acted by Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac. Boom it’s on!
1. The Darkest Hour
Gary Oldman is nearly unrecognizable as Winston Churchill. Almost guaranteed to witness an Oscar-nominated performance with this one. Plus, can we really ever have too many WWII set movies?
