Star Wars Episode VIII voted most anticipated film of 2017

The Force is still strong with the Skywalker saga.

The box office is winding down for 2016 and it’s time to start looking ahead to 2017 and what will be a hit. Fandango has released its annual list of the most anticipated films of the year, and while the top of the list isn’t much of a surprise, some studio heads have to be sweating the bottom portion.

  1. Star Wars: Episode VIII
  2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  3. Beauty and the Beast
  4. Wonder Woman
  5. Spider-Man: Homecoming
  6. Justice League
  7. The Fate of the Furious
  8. Fifty Shades Darker
  9. Logan
  10. Despicable Me 3
  11. The LEGO Batman Movie
  12. Thor: Ragnarok
  13. Pirate of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
  14. Blade Runner 2049
  15. Cars 3
  16. John Wick: Chapter 2
  17. War for the Planet of the Apes
  18. The Dark Tower
  19. Pitch Perfect 3
  20. Alien: Covenant
  21. Jumanji
  22. Kong: Skull Island
  23. Transformers: The Last Knight
  24. Dunkirk
  25. The Mummy
  26. Baywatch
  27. T2: Trainspotting
  28. xXx: The Return of Xander Cage
  29. Snatched
  30. The Great Wall

Star Wars: Episode VIII being at the top is no surprise, but when you get down into the 20s, things get dicey. You’re talking films with huge budgets (T2: Trainspotting, aside) and having that little interest is not a good thing. The Transformers series is becoming more about the international market, but Alien: Covenant being down there, or The Mummy, is not a good sign.

2017 is going to be an interesting year to watch at the box office. A lot of big gambles are being taken, and I don’t think an awful lot of them are going to pay off.
