    A new year, a new slate of films!

    As before, try to keep the box office reports about Rogue One's performance primarily to the 2016 thread, even though we'll obviously be able to touch upon it here in the weekly totals as they become available.

    2017 looks to be a curious beast. June looks like the only really crowded month this year, while October has a lot of big horror franchise sequels announced (spanning a wide range of originating decades). I also get the impression that 2017 is something of a "revenge of the naughties" with an unusual amount of sequels or reboots to properties that debuted in the early/mid-00's (over a dozen by my count without even counting Logan or Spider-Man).

    Some key films over the course of the 2017, currently (obviously subject to change and not limited to):

    Jan: Underworld: Blood Wars, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Patriot's Day, Split, The Bye-Bye Man, Monster Trucks.
    Feb: Rings, John Wick: Chapter 2, The LEGO Batman Movie, Fifty Shades Darker, The Great Wall.
    March: Logan, Ghost in the Shell, Kong: Skull Island, Beauty and the Beast, Power Rangers, CHiPs.
    April: The Fate of the Furious, Smurfs: The Lost Village, The Circle.
    May: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Alien: Covenant, Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Snatched, Baywatch.
    June: Wonder Woman, The Mummy, Cars 3, Transformers: The Last Knight, Despicable Me 3.
    July: Spider-Man: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Dunkirk, The Dark Tower.
    August: Annabelle 2, The Emoji Movie.
    September: The LEGO Ninjago Movie, IT, The Inhumans, Flatliners.
    October: Blade Runner 2049, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Friday the 13th, Insidious: Chapter 4, Saw: Legacy, Cloverfield 2017.
    November: Thor: Ragnarok, Creed 2, Justice League, Coco, Murder on the Orient Express.
    December: Star Wars: Episode VIII, Jumanji, The Six Billion Dollar Man, Pitch Perfect 3,
    TBD/TBA: Death Wish, Splinter Cell, Super Troopers 2.

    LEGO Batman, Logan, Beauty and the Beast, Guardians, WW, Cars 3, Spider-Man, Apes, The Dark Tower, IT, Thor, Justice League and Star Wars are the ones I'll definitely see. So up a couple from last year, I think.

    Episode VIII, Fate of the Furious and the Transformers sequel are the most likely choices to dominate the global box office. Guardians 2 and Despicable Me 3 are major contenders.

    I'd like Dunkirk to do well or at least be better than Inception or Interstellar.

    Don't have a lot of hope for Alien/Blade Runner sequels.

    Why does the Transformers franchise still have a following?

    I'm cheering for Ghost In The Shell to do well and/pr get decent reviews especially since some folks are so against ScarJo.

    That's a hell of a nerd list of movies for this coming year.

    I think GitS is looking very strong visually, hopefully it will be as strong as I've heard.

    I wonder if The Emoji Movie will be as lazy and terrible as the title suggests.

    Chris Pine for Sgt. Getraer, I hope.

    As far as those I'll watch - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Blade Runner 2049, and Episode VIII in theatres, and maybe The LEGO Batman Movie, and Alien: Covenant too, but likely I'll wait for home release for those two.

    I don't think Super Troopers 2 will make a ton of money, but they have the advantage of having raised most of their budget money through GoFundMe, so even if they bomb it won't be too big a waste, but it might mean no more Broken Lizard for a long while.

    They should just move to straight to digital release. That's where they belong with their limited fan base.

    Isn't that true of 1/3 of the films listed? Do some even have a fan base? Is anyone itching to see CHiPs or Six Billion Dollar Man?

    I'll save that one for next year. [face_devil]

    Some of the entries on the list that I included were more out of performance interest than the likelihood of them being actual box office forces affecting other releases this year.

    For instance, Monster Trucks is not going to be a success. After being shelved, delayed and just looking bad in general, it's more a question of how bad it'll do than if it'll break even or open big.

    You never know what might be a hit. Broken Lizard has a track record of underperforming theatrically and doing well on home release.

    I dare you to ask that on the CHiPs or Six Billion Dollar Man fan forums.

    You don't want to venture in there- the debates over Billion vs Million are explosive. ;)

    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Dunkirk, Episode XIII are really the only big movies of 2017 that seem interesting. I'm sure there will be some good smaller films. I'm always hopeful for something as unexpected as "The Lobster."
