Top Ten Films I Want To See In 2017

Thursday, 12 January 2017

Many of you will know I am a massive film fan and you can regularly find me in a cinema. 2016 was a great year for films (my favourite being I, Daniel Blake) but here are some films I can wait to see in 2017.

Tulip Fever

'An artist falls for a young married woman while he's commissioned to paint her portrait', Set in the 17th century during the Tulip mania in Amsterdam starring two of my favourite actors Alicia Vikander and Christoph Waltz.

I was lucky enough to read the script for the film a good year ago whilst audition for a small role and ever since the story hasn't left me and I cannot wait to see this film. I believe it will do very well and may I add, Award Season 2018?

Saw: Legacy

OMG I fricking love these films. Call me sick but ever since the first one and then the introduction of the games I have been hooked. Even if the story can be a bit hit and miss, I go for the gore and tension. It's expected the 20th of October at the minute, just in time for Halloween.

T2 Trainspotting

Need I say more than 20 years since the first masterpiece, Danny Boyle brings back the original characters on the 27th of January. See the trailer here.

Wonder Woman

Now I am not a huge DC fan since I hated 'Batman V Superman' and was also highly disappointed by 'Suicide Squad', but none-the-less a kick ass female superhero film, I'm all in. Expected the 2nd of June.

War for the Planet of the Apes

The war is about to come to it's climactic end. If you haven't seen 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' or 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' then do. The motion capture performances are amazing. Expected June 14th.

Beauty and the Beast

A film from where my nickname 'Chip' came from (because I smashed out my two front teeth regularly) now comes in a live action, all singing, all dancing form. It looks magical and it looks stunning. It looks everything a Disney film should. An amazing cast and due out 17th of March. Trailer is here.


Again a massive Xmen fan and 'Logan' sees the final outing for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. It is said to start the new generation of Xmen so expect a heart wrenching and epic ending. Due out March 3rd.

Thor: Ragnorak

Not much is known about this film but it will lead into 'Avengers Infinity War' and with cameos from Dr. Strange and the Hulk you can expect a Marvel epic for sure. Expected 27th of October.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

I am Groot

Alien: Covenant

Ridley Scott is back in the Alien seat and starring Michael Fassbender this is set to be a great film. Check the trailer here. Due out May 19th.

I would of added La La Land to this list but I saw it at the UK premiere in October and it came out in America in December so wasn't sure what year to put it in. Though I may add I think it is my new favourite film ever and it is open in cinemas across the country now. Check out the trailer here.

Now the best and cheapest way to see films at the cinema is by getting a Cineworld Unlimited Card. As long as you go twice a month you have covered the cost and with cold, rainy days ahead, what better way to keep warm. Get yours here and if you use my code RAF-93PS-70VF-11BK-91EP you will get one month free.

Top Tip: You can use your Cineworld Card at Picturehouse Central (£5 uplift) which is by far the most beautiful cinema in town.

More film posts to come on the lead up to The Oscars so keep your eyes pealed and let me know what films you have loved recently or are looking forward to.
