The first four months of 2017 has been pretty good for the Hollywood industry and for film buffs. John Wick Chapter 2, Get Out, Logan, and The Lego Batman Movie were some of the finest entertainers this year, whereas highly anticipated films such as The Fate of the Furious, The Wall, and Fifty Shades Darker highly disappointed average film lovers.
2017 still has a lot to offer for film buffs. Four superhero movies are scheduled for release this year and we will be also able to see a war film from one of the finest directors in Hollywood, Christopher Nolan by the end of the year. Below are some of the highly anticipated upcoming Hollywood films of 2017.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword will be the first attempt of Guy Ritchie to make a fine war film. This film will tell the origin story of King Arthur and on how he acknowledges his true legacy. The cast members of the film are Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, and Djimon Hounsou.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Johnny Depp will once again play the iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the fifth edition of the fan favorite Pirates of the Caribbean series, which is titled as Dead Men Tell No Tales. Reports indicate that Keira Knightly will also be reprising her role of Elizabeth Swann in the movie.
The fourth film from the DCEU continuity will open to the audience on June 20, 2017 and it will feature Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, and Connie Nielsen. The director of the film, Patty Jenkins, had earlier confirmed that the film will explore the origin story of Wonder Woman.
