Ethan Anderton Most Anticipated Movies of 2017

The first weekend of theatrical releases in 2017 arrives in just a couple days, but since it’s January, we’re still getting rollover from awards season mixed with garbage that doesn’t deserve a release date at any other time. So we’re already looking forward to some of the more exciting movie releases coming this year, and the movies that I’m looking forward to the most range from blockbuster sequels to movies from filmmakers who haven’t delivered a new film in a few years.

Baby Driver

It’s been over three years since we’ve gotten a new movie from Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright, and that’s a shame. But thankfully, we won’t have to wait too much longer since he has a new action thriller come to theaters late in the summer of 2017.

Baby Driver follows a young getaway driver who is nearly mute and suffers from a condition that leaves a constant ringing n his ears, so he relies on his own personal soundtrack to drown out the noise so he can do what he does best. The first Baby Driver photos have emerged showing Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars) in the lead role, preparing for a music-fueled drive, as well as the supporting cast that includes Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm and Elsa Gonzalez.

jumanji release date

Sony is reorganizing its release calendar, and that means a few big titles are getting shifted around. First off, The Dark Tower has been postponed from February 2017 to summer 2017, as we reported earlier today… and it’s taking over Jumanji‘s slot, which means Jumanji is now getting pushed to Christmas 2017.

Meanwhile, Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver has gone from being a spring movie to being a summer movie, and The Equalizer 2 — the first sequel of Denzel Washington’s entire career — is getting delayed one year to fall 2018. Get full details on the Jumanji release date and more below.  Read More »
