    My Top 20 Most Anticipated Films of 2017
    (Click on the links to see the trailers)

    1. Kong: Skull Island – Love the giant monster genre and the two trailers that have been released so far have been terrific. Can’t wait to see how this will lead to Kong vs. Godzilla in 2020.

    2. Logan – Trailer sold me which by the way is my favorite trailer I’ve seen this year. Hugh Jackman’s supposedly last appearance as Wolverine promises to be dramatic and emotional.

    3. Kingsman: The Golden Circle – Ah, the sequel to ‘Movie Nobody Cares About Except Me.’ Director Matthew Vaughn and the cast are back and that’s good enough for me. Also, this is the first time Vaughn is directing a sequel to one of his movies.

    4. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – Sequel seems to have twice as fun with the addition of Ego the Living Planet (Kurt Russell), new team members like Mantis and of course the absolutely adorable Baby Groot.

    5. John Wick: Chapter 2 – Yeah, I think he’s back. Chapter 2 promises more gun-fu ballet action, new interesting, sinister characters and explore the rich and fascinating underworld of assassins.

    6. Justice League

    7. Wonder Woman

    8. Blade Runner 2049

    9. Star Wars: Episode VIII

    10. Alien: Covenant

    11. Thor: Ragnarok

    12. Ghost in the Shell
