Looper blows our minds with the top movies to hit the big screen in 2017. “…Wonder Woman – June 2
After being introduced to audiences in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman will get her own standalone feature, which is rumored to be the first installment in a period-piece trilogy that will take audiences from the 1920s to the present day. Monster director Patty Jenkins is at the helm, with a screenplay from Pan writer Jason Fuchs. Meanwhile, Gadot will be surrounded by a supporting cast that includes Chris Pine, Robin Wright, and Danny Huston. Whatever actually happens in the movie, it’s a long-overdue victory for comics fans who’ve waited years for the Amazonian warrior to get a shot at her own big-screen franchise—and it may help Warner Bros. gain a demographic edge on Marvel in the superhero blockbuster arms race.
World War Z 2 – June 9
For a movie that tried to spin an action-thriller yarn out of a bestseller that used the oral history format to tell the story of a worldwide zombie outbreak—and had an infamously troubled production in the bargain—World War Z turned out to be a surprisingly entertaining (not to mention extremely commercially successful) film. Which brings us to the inevitable sequel, World War Z 2, in which Brad Pitt returns to battle the zombie plague. We don’t know much about the plot at this point, but director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible) will be working from a screenplay by Steven Knight, whose varied list of credits includes the chess drama Pawn Sacrifice and Bradley Cooper’s Burnt.
Cars 3 – June 16
Rev up your engines, kids, because Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is back in high-speed action in Disney-Pixar’s Cars 3. The 3D animated adventure, which follows the events of 2006’s Cars and 2011’s Cars 2, will follow the famous red race car on his journey to catch up with a new generation of speedsters and feature the return of some fan favorites like Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), Sally Carrera (Bonnie Hunt), and Ramone (Cheech Marin) while adding fresh fuel to the cinematic tank by way of yellow car and race technician Cruz Ramirez and the rookie racer McQueen longs to defeat, Jackson Storm. According to director John Fee, the storyline finds McQueen coping with something of a midlife crisis—mature stuff for a Pixar film, but considering how well the first two films (and spinoffs Planes and Planes: Fire & Rescue) have done at the box office, this one’s sure to be a hit with the summertime family crowd.
Transformers: The Last Knight – June 23
Every time Michael Bay thinks he’s out of the Transformers franchise, they pull him back in with a fresh boatload of cash. Bay’s been making noises about being done with Optimus Prime and his buddies for years, and was initially only on board to produce this installment in the series. But the executives at Paramount must have been pretty persuasive, because he’s still in the director’s seat for what he insists will be his final Transformers film. Aside from Mark Wahlberg being back as the saga’s current human star, The Last Knight looks like it’ll plunge viewers into a time-traveling plot that includes King Arthur and an alternate history in which Nazis won World War II—plus plenty of action and lots of lead-ins to the assortment of spinoff films the studio’s planning. …”
