December 26, 2016


We are all happy that 2016 is almost over, and for so many reasons. However, movie buffs should be especially excited about 2017 as it will bring so many cool new projects.

The schedule is just too packed with huge upcoming movies that it almost gives us the chills. It was extremely hard for us to pick only 13 movie releases in 2017, and we can say only one thing – this is shaping up to be another successful year for cinematography.

1. The Lego Batman Movie

This long anticipated animation action adventure is scheduled for February 10, 2017 and if it lives up to our expectations like “The Lego Movie” two years ago did, it is going to be one beautiful and colorful chaos!

The plot sees Bruce Wayne who must deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also faces the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.

The cast includes: Rosario Dawson, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Mariah Carey, Will Arnett, Jenny Slate…

2. Logan


This will be the last time we see Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, so this is truly a must.

The story focuses on an aging Wolverine and Professor X who must protect a young female clone of Wolverine from an evil organization led by Nathanial Essex.

The cast reads (aside from Jackman): Boyd Holbrook, Doris Morgado, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant (one of our favorite people on earth), Richard E. Grant…

Logan premiers on March 3, 2017.

3. T2 Trainspotting
