Which Upcoming 2017 Movies Are You the Most Excited About?

I’m giddy with excitement about a number of movies in the final 2 months of 2017, so I thought I’d share them here in case you share my enthusiasm.

First, an honorable mention: Stranger Things season 2. It’s not a movie, but I’m just as excited about it as any film, and I intend to watch at least several hours of it with friends on Saturday. I can’t wait.

Here’s the rest by category:

Comedy: Daddy’s Home 2, Father Figures, The Disaster Artist

Drama: Murder on the Orient Express, Phantom Thread, Goodbye Christopher Robin, Downsizing, I Tonya

Superhero: Justice League, Thor: Ragnarok, Bright

Pure Geekdom: Star Wars: The Last Jedi, The Shape of Water, and Coco

Of those, the films I know for sure I’ll see in the theater are Thor: Ragnarok and Star Wars. The rest depend at least partially on reviews/timing. I’m particularly curious about Phantom Thread, as it’s not at all the type of movie I’d normally watch, but it has Daniel Day Lewis in it.

Also, while I’ve fallen into the temptation of watching trailers for most of these movies, I’ve successfully avoided watching anything about Star Wars. Avoiding Star Wars trailers, teasers, commercials, and scoops has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.

UPDATE: Ready Player One was on my list, but apparently it won’t be released until March.

Are you excited about any of these movies? Are there any on your list that aren’t on mine? Which will you definitely see in the theater?
