The sequel to the controversial erotic-drama 2015 movie still stars Jamie Dorman and Dakota Johnson reprising their roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. As its title says, Fifty Shades Darker is much edgier. It promises shower sex and gunplay.

Hugh Jackman plays the iconic role of Wolverine one last time for Logan. If this hot-headed superhero has always been your favorite member of X-Men, you need to watch this film.

Classic monster King Kong gets a modern reboot under Legendary. The film stars some of Hollywood’s brightest stars including Bria Larson, John C. Reilly, John Goodman and Tom Hiddleston. If this performs well in the box-office, we bet it wouldn’t take long before we see King Kong and Godzilla fight it out in the big screen.

Director James Gunn and his ragtag crew of unlikely superheroes are back in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2. The sequel promises to tell more about the father of Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt). Expect this movie to be filled with cool 70’s music just like the first installment!

Following her scene-stealing big screen debut in Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), gets her own full-length movie this year. We can’t wait to see her take center stage this time. Girl power for the win!

#9. Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7, 2017)

After appearing in Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland is donning the blue and red spandex once again as everyone’s favorite wall-crawling superhero. Spider-Man: Homecoming shows us Peter Parker in his high school days. He’ll be fighting The Vulture (Michael Keaton) plus Tony Star/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) will be around as his mentor.

The God of Thunder is set to return for his third movie in Thor: Ragnarok. Chris Hemsworth plays the titular character side by side with Mark Ruffalo (Hulk). And oh! It’s recently been confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange) will also appear on the film.

With all the puzzle pieces in place, DC is ready to launch their legendary superteam this year. Be ready for some tough competition, Marvel fans. The Justice League is coming!

#12. Star Wars: Episode VIII (December 15, 2017)

With Rian Johnson handling the directorial duties for this film, we have a feeling it’s going to be a good one. Sure, it would be a challenge to top J. J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens and Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One but in Johnson we trust. Her past works have been pretty stellar and we think her dark tone will give this film a different flavor. We’re excited to see a lightsaber rematch between Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).
