There are so many movies coming out in 2017, the majority of which we are very eager to see. We decided it would be nice of us to let you in on all the good news. Whether you need your regular dose of Ryan Gosling, or you just need a good thriller to cuddle up to boyfy with, we’ve got something for everyone.
Here are the 2017 movies we’re excited to see in the first half of the year:
Underworld: Blood Wars
The movie was originally meant to have been released on October of 2016, but the producers of Underworld: Blood Wars are really making you wait. In America the release date is January 6th.
We’re super excited to see Kate Beckinsale reprise her role as Selene, and it’s the directors directorial debut – Anna Foerster. There’s plenty of eye candy too, just in case you were wondering, although we’re super excited at the thought of seeing some more of Theo James, who’s currently the face of the Hugo Boss fragrance.
Fifty Shades Darker
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Fifty Shades Darker is the second movie to bring Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) and Mr. Grey (Jamie Dornan) together. It’s guaranteed to be a steamy ride, if the first movie and all the books are anything to go by, also bringing back Rita Ora in her role as Mia Grey.
Also starring Kim Basinger, Luke Grimes, and Eric Johnson, we’re very excited for this one, and to make things even more thrilling, they filmed scenes for the third movie, Fifty Shades Freed, right after and that’s due to come at the beginning of 2018. It’s one of the naughtier 2017 movies, that’s for sure.
With the likes of Judi Dench and Zack Galifianakis, Tulip Fever promises to be a decent watch, slightly more serious than the two we’ve already shown you. Due for release at the end of February, 2017, it’s set in 17th Century Netherlands and is a movie adaptation of a book. That’s always bound to get tongues wagging.
And if you wanted your slice of eye candy, the kid from In Treatment, Dane DeHaan, is in it.
Coming out in March of 2017, Logan is a drama superhero movie bringing back Hugh Jackman’s amazing (and totally hot) character, Wolverine. It’s basically the tenth X-Men movies. He’ll love it for the geeky, superhero action, and you’ll love it for Hugh Jackman. Oh, and Patrick Stewart is back, alongside Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, and Stephen Merchant, among many others.
It doesn’t matter whether or not you were a Trainspotting fan, it’s one of the most iconic movies of our generation, and the eagerly-awaited second installment has got people up and down the country going nuts.
Bringing back our favorite characters from the first movie, it’s set twenty years after the first one, showing how them and their lives have changed. It’s worth it to see Ewan McGregor bringing back Mark Renton, and to remind us to make good life choices this year!
We’ve been waiting for a Friends reunion for years now, and it doesn’t appear to be happening at any point soon. You can get your dose of Lisa Kudrow action in this comedy movie, one of the 2017 movies to come out in March.
Table 19 also stars Anna Kendrick (as the lead role), and Amanda Crew, Stephen Merchant (again!), Wyatt Russell, and more in the movie that follows a wedding guest’s journey after she learns she’s been sat at the table with all the other people the bride and groom didn’t really want to invite …
Kong: Skull Island
Another monster film that the boys will love, it’s going to star Tom Hiddleston, which is how we know you’re going to love it too. It had a pretty impressive budget of almost $200 million, so the special effects are going to be awesome, and you’ll also find John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Brie Larson in the cast list.
Beauty and the Beast
Let’s face it, this is THE movie that women around the world are waiting for. Beauty and the Beast sees the real-life adaptation of a Walt Disney classic, Emma Watson playing the part of Beauty / Belle, and Dan Stevens as the Beast / Prince.
Set to be released on March 17th, 2017, we all know the story so we won’t talk about that. Instead, we’ll just let you know that Ewan McGregor plays Lumiere, Luke Evans is Gaston, and Emma Thompson is Mrs. Potts. Oh, and we’re so very, very excited about it!
Whether or not you ever watched the TV show, the CHiPs movie is one to look out for, starring Dax Shepherd, Michael Peña, Krsiten Bell, and Adam Brody. The action comedy is coming out in March of 2017, and follows the life of two middle-aged cops who probably find their way of saving the day in typical movie-style.
We were always the pink Power Ranger in High School, and we’re very excited for the movie, starring Breaking Bad hit, Bryan Cranstone. Elizabeth Banks is in there too, and Dacre Montgomery.
It had a budget of over $150 million, so we imagine the boys are going to love this one. We’re going to love it because we always secretly dreamed of being a Power Ranger ourselves … Didn’t you?
The Boss Baby
This one on the list of 2017 movies looks like it might be hilarious, a 3D-animated tale with the voices of Lisa Kudrow (again), Jimmy Kimmel, Steve Buscemi from the Adam Sandler movies, and Alex Baldwin.
It’s coming out at the end of March 2017, and sounds like a tale of evil gone good. One thing is for sure, we can’t wait for it.
Smurfs: The Lost Village
Coming out in April, this is one that big kids and little kids alike will love, using the voices of Disney star, Demi Lovato, alongside Hollywood hunk, Joe Manganiello. Smurfette has a crisis, and Gargamel does his usual job of trying to take over the world and end the Smurfs entirely. We loved the first movie, and we can’t wait for this one to come out. We’ll use the kids as an excuse to go and see it for ourselves.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Julia Roberts around, and she’s starring alongside Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay in a drama movie set for release in April of 2017. A story about a kid with a facial deformity, we bet it’s going to be a real tear-jerker, a true story about bullying.
We’ve all been at the receiving end of bullies at some point in our lives, and maybe we should have a box of tissues handy for when we settle down to watch this one.

Are you waiting for your dose of Chris Evans? Well, you’ve got him in the form of Frank Adler in the drama-movie, Gifted. Also starring Jenny Slate, Lindsay Duncan, and Octavia Spencer, it’s coming out in April and appears to be another one we might need a box of tissues for.
What’s up with all the tear-jerkers?

The Fate of the Furious
For all those Fast and the Furious fans, there’s another one coming, bringing together Vin Diesel, Dayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron, Jason Statham, and a whole host more famous names.
The eighth movie in the installation, and the first one to not star Paul Walker after his tragic car accident, but Helen Mirren has been said to have a small role in the film, and even Clint Eastwood’s son, Scott, has signed up to get in on the action.
The boys are going to love this movie, and with the eye-candy on offer, the girls might too!

The Lost City of Z
Are you missing Charlie Hunnam after the end of Sons of Anarchy? We still can’t get over the fact that he backed out of Fifty Shades of Grey. Did you know that he was originally going to play the infamous Mr. Grey that Jamie Dornan ended up playing?
The Lost City of Z is a biological action adventure movie, so the boys are going to love it, and alongside Charlie Hunnam you’ll also find other Hollywood hunks – Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland, and even Sienna Miller for the boys too.
Coming out in April of 2017, it might not be for everyone, but it’s that definitely deserves its spot on the list of movies we’re excited to see in 2017.

If you love a good animated movie, and the kids seem to also, Animal Crackers is one to watch out for, due to come out in April of 2017. Using the voices of John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Ian McKellen and Danny DeVito, the movie promises to be that good even Sylvester Stallone wanted in on the action.
After a family inherit a circus, things go ridiculously awry (just as you would expect it to), and it’s up to the family to save the day against their wicked uncle, played by Sir. Ian McKellen.
Emma Watson is starring alongside Tom Hanks in this drama / sci-fi movie, coming out at the end of April 2017. You’ll also see John Boyega and Bill Paxton in this movie, another adaption of a book. ‘The Circle’ was originally written by Dave Eggers, who also wrote a best-selling memoir – ‘A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius’.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
If you loved the Marvel offering, Guardians of the Galaxy, you’ll love this comic-book based movie, bringing Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper alongside Zoe Saldana, Kurt Russell, and Michael Rooker.
The second helping of the installation is coming out in May of 2017, a story of Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt) finding out who his real parents are.
Coming out in May of 2017, Snatched will see the return of one of our favorite comediennes and actresses, Amy Schumer, alongside Joan Cusack and Goldie Hawn. The comedy brings Goldie Hawn out of ‘retirement’ for acting. She hasn’t appeared in anything since the 2002 movie, The Banger Sisters.
The movie was originally entitled Mother/Daughter, with Goldie and Amy playing the roles respectively, and is said to be an action-comedy. We can’t wait for it.
Whether you were into the whole Alien films or not, you can’t deny that this one is eagerly awaited. Coming out in May, 2017, Michael Fassbender is in it, alongside Katherine Waterston, Guy Pearce, James Franco and Danny McBride. After Prometheus left so many questions unanswered, fans will be glad to know there are answers coming.
Alien: Covenant is the first of three proposed movies to explain the Prometheus one. That’s a lot of explaining!
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Let’s face it, any dose of Johnny Depp is only going to be a good thing, and when he’s all dressed up as Captain Sparrow … Well, great. Excellent. We can’t wait!
Javier Bardem stars alongside Geoffrey Rush and Orlando Bloom, and even Paul McCartney has a part to play. With a budget of over $320 million, you know this one is going to be a winner. We’ll start lining up for tickets now, shall we?
Whether you’re male or female, there’s plenty of eye candy in this movie, one of the most eagerly awaited of all time. We must be honest about this.
Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron are in a movie which involves men running around in small red shorts and not much else. That’s basically what you need to know about this one. There are some girls in there to keep the boys happy, but those two actors are basically all we’re going to go see it for.
It was about time a woman kicked some ass, and she definitely does that in Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot plays the lead role – Wonder Woman / Diana Prince, and she’s saving the world alongside Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, and Robin Wright, among others.
With a budget in the region of $100-120 million, it’s going to be a good one, and it’s coming out in June 2017. Not long to wait now!

They’ve run out of The Mummy movies to make so they’re going back to the beginning and starting again. This one stars Tom Cruise, who’s been pretty quiet for a while, and Russell Crowe is in this one too.
It’s coming out in June and it’s one of those movies we’re excited to see in 2016. It can only be like the original but better … right?

Rock That Body
It’s a comedy starring Scarlett Johnsson and Zoë Kravtiz, set for release in June of 2017. There’s a stripper, he dies, and all hell breaks lose during a bachelorette party. We’ll be honest, it all sounds quite comedic indeed. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Scarlett do some comedy, so perhaps Rock That Body promises to be a good watch?
Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst coming together in The Beguiled, a drama movie coming out at the end of June in 2017, directed and written by Sofia Coppola.
The movie is based on a book called ‘A Painted Devil’, written by Thomas P. Cullinan, and there’s already been one movie mad about it, but that was back in 1971. It was about time they made a second, more modern version.
Transformers: The Last Knight
The fifth of the Transformers movies, Transformers: The Last Knight promises to be a really good watch, starring Mark Wahlberg as your eye candy, alongside Stanley Tucci, Isabela Moner, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and even Anthony Hopkins.
It has a budget of $260 million, so you know it’s going to be packed with some impressive special effects. Set for release in June 2017, there are two spin-offs, Bumblebee and Transformers 6, due out in 2018 and 2019.
Will Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell, Ryan Simpkins, and a whole host more, The House sounds as though it might be a really good watch, due out towards the end of June in 2017.
Amy and Will are a married couple in this movie, which you know is going to go down as one of the funniest married couples ever, and in short, they try to set up an illegal casino with their neighbors with all the consequences you’d expect … and some you probably wouldn’t.
Amityville: The Awakening
If you love a good scary movie, this one might be a good one to look out for, actually known as the 17th installment in the Amityville horror movies. That’s quite an impressive array, don’t you think?
The supernatural horror movie will star Bella Thorne, and is due to be released at the very end of June in 2017. You might want to wait for this one to come out on DVD so you can watch it from behind the sofa cushions.
