17 Anticipated Movies Coming In 2017

We are created to love stories. We love a compelling plot that sends us to another world, and recently, these worlds have been more and more realistic. One of my favorite parts of watching a movie actually happens before I even see the movie- it’s the anticipation. Therefore, I’ve compiled a list of 17 movies we should all get excited about this year!*
*Disclaimer: these dates and descriptions are liable to change.

Hopefully you have some movie theater gift cards, because you might be broke after watching all of these movies (given that you see Beauty and the Beast like 50 million times and all others once). Happy movie watching! Comment below which one you are most excited about. Do you like the anticipation for movies as much as I do?

  2. Hidden Figures...YES! Beauty and The Beast...YES! Their Finest looks AMAZING (anything WWII is always a fave of mine). Also slightly FREAKING out about the Zookeepers Wife since I read the book and its such an amazing story! Also Spiderman is very anticipated for me:)
    Thanks for sharing these!

    1. I can't wait to see Hidden Figures, because it looks so good! And I was also excited to see some WWII movies. You read the book? Now I'm even more excited! Spiderman looks like a blast!

  3. Woo, all of these look so good! I was interested in A United Kingdom as soon as I saw the picture!

    1. That movie looks super good! I've been missing some good dramas last year, so I'm glad 2017 is picking up the pace!

  4. Dude, there are SO many great movies coming out this year. o.O My wallet will be crying at me for visiting the theater so often. xD

      But yes, it will be a good movie year, won't it?

  5. It's so true though; I think I'll be at the movie theater every month in 2017 (yes...we have already made it in Janurary xD). And seriously, I get chills every time I watch the Beauty and the Beast trailer too! The music is perfection. I felt that way about the live action Cinderella trailer music too, honestly... <3

    1. I'm pretty sure I will as well! I got a gift card for Christmas, but that will last, say two movies :)

      Yes, the live Cinderella was so pretty! I bought the soundtrack because it is so beautiful! I hope Beauty and the Beast is great too!

  6. I can't wait to see all of these! Especially Beauty and the Beast! I teared up when I saw the trailer!

  7. Hidden Figures was amazing! <3 I still need to see A United Kingdom; the trailer looks pretty good and I love interracial couples. (also I STILL haven't seen Loving like??? what's wrong with me??? Olivia that's so 2016 how can you not have seen it??? :P) Also SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING 7.7.17 YASSS sorry I'm a major Marvel fangirl and also just happy to see a Spider-Man movie that'll include a diverse cast (including a POC love interest! yay! ^_^)

    I think 2017 is about to be a good year for movies :)
