Top 10: Trailers for 2017 Movies

2017

Welcome to a brand-new year of movie watching!  Yes, there are still plenty of 2016 releases to view and review as we move toward Oscar season (and I can promise you there will be more reviews than there have been of late, my apologies for that), but it’s always exciting to stand at the beginning of the new year and look at what’s upcoming.  I thought the best way to do that was to highlight the ten best trailers for 2017 movies released thus far.  These are mostly for first-half releases, and some films just missed the list so here’s just a taste of what’s coming in 2017 that isn’t on the list: Star Wars Episode VIII, Justice League, John Wick Chapter 2, The Circle, Alien: Covenant, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, The Mummy, Spider-Man Homecoming, The Dark Tower, Creed 2, It, Thor: Ragnarok, Murder on the Orient Express, and many more.

Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and added Oscar winners Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren (really?) to their giant ensemble.  Then they went and put a title on this thing that Telemundo would have rejected as overly melodramatic.  The Fate of the Furious?  Sigh.  Check out the first look at the film, and plot details below from Coming Soon.  I’m certainly intrigued by this trailer and stoked that Kurt Russell and Jason Statham will be back.  What I will keep calling Fast 8 opens next April.
