The 7 Biggest Movies Still Coming in 2017

From 'Kingsman: The Golden Cirle' to 'Star Wars' 


Summer 2017 is winding down, bringing a rocky summer blockbuster season to a close. Highs like Wonder Woman exceeded expectations — both in terms of box office and audience reception. Lows like The Dark Tower and Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets fell short of expectations, landing with a thud.

As fall inches closer, the end of 2017 is in sight — but before you prepare for 2018’s slate of movies, there are plenty of big movies waiting on the horizon before the new year arrives. While most are simply entries in ongoing franchises like Star Wars or Marvel’s superhero universe, some are hoping to generate interest in something new, reboot something old, or kick off new franchises.

From new entries in ongoing series to debut stories, here are the biggest movies to keep on your radar that have yet to come in fall and winter of 2017.

1. Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the follow up to 2014’s hit comedy-spy film Kingsman: the Secret Service. The second entry follows the British agents as they team up with their American counterparts. Pedro Pascal, Channing Tatum, and Jeff Bridges are joining in the fun this time around.

Release date: September 22, 2017

2. The Lego Ninja Movie

The Lego Ninja Movie is the follow-up to The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie. This one follows six teenage ninja heroes who protect the city of Ninjago from the warlord Lord Garmado, voiced by Justin Theroux.

Release date: September 22, 2017

3. Blade Runner 2029

4. The Snowman

The Snowman starring Michael Fassbender is based on a crime novel by Norwegian author Jo Nesbø. There are currently eleven novels following Fassbender’s character Harry Hole — so if The Snowman succeeds, it could kick off a Girl With the Dragon Tattoo-esque Scandinavian crime franchise.

5. Thor: Ragnarok

The third of Marvel’s Thor films, Thor: Ragnarok is also the most hotly anticipated one — thanks to director Taika Waititi. Waititi has a uniquely irreverent style full of color and humor that is already evident in the Thor: Ragnarok trailer. Plus, the film boasts a seriously fierce looking Cate Blanchett and Tessa Thompson and a newly shorn-hair look for Thor.
