Top 10: Trailers for 2017 Movies

X-23, Dafne Keen, Logan, Wolverine, Hugh Jackman
A great trailer is designed to do one thing: get you back to see the feature.  However, trailers are also an art form unto themselves.  The best ones use music, imagery, mystery, and intrigue to set the stage for the film they’re promoting.  There were some great trailers for the films of 2017, many of which did not live up to the trailers that preceded them.  That doesn’t mean those trailers aren’t worthy of recognition, though.  As we wrap up 2017 (good riddance), it’s time for the deluge of TOP 10 lists.  Here are the ten best trailers for movies released in 2017.

In Theaters This Week (3/3/2017): Logan, The Shack, Before I Fall

The Shack, Octavia Spencer, Sam Worthington

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  March 3rd begins the biggest blockbuster loaded March in movie history with a huge film opening every week the next five weeks.  Three movies open wide, but Hugh Jackman’s final bow as Wolverine make Logan the first titan of March.

Collide, Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  February 24th has three new wide releases, but most movie fans are focused on the Academy Awards which will air Sunday night (spoiler: La La Land will win, I’m calling at least 9 Oscars, so just get ready for that).

Movie Review: The LEGO Batman Movie (2017) “Good, but not Awesome.”

2014’s The LEGO Movie may be the most absolutely delighted I have been by any film since starting this site, and I named it my Movie of the Year.  The film was beloved by many, so naturally now there is an entire slew of LEGO films on the way (two this year alone).  The first features the breakout star of The LEGO Movie‘s supporting cast: Will Arnett’s Batman.  Is it the awesomeness of The LEGO Movie or that the trailers seemed to promise?  No.  Sadly, in that respect, it’s a bit of a disappointment, but that doesn’t mean The LEGO Batman Movie is not a quality outing into the LEGOverse.

In Theaters This Week (2/17/2017): The Wall, A Cure for Wellness, Fist Fight

Fist Fight

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  February 17th is a four-day weekend for a lot of people in the States for Presidents Day (insert your own joke about the current one here), and there are three underwhelming choices to greet it.  Essentially, if you missed John Wick or Lego Batman (I’M GETTING TO THE REVIEW), that’s your best bet if you plan to head to the movies this weekend.
