2017 has already seen its fair share of epic movies hit the box office. From Guardians of the Galaxy 2 to the new DC addition Wonder Woman, there’s never been a better time to be a theatre-goer. Add in a large popcorn + drink combo, and you’re set for a wild adventure in the comfort of cinema chairs. 2017 is far from its pinnacle, but there are quite a few cinemas winners to enjoy as we get closer to the last of Winter. 

Atomic Blonde
Release date: Thursday August 3
After watching the trailer at 3 times (okay it was 5), this is on the top of our watch list, simply because of its epic soundtrack. Set in Berlin during the Cold War, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) plays a kick-ass undercover M16 agent investigating the murder of a fellow agent and recovering a missing list of double agents.

Annabelle: Creation
Release date: Thursday August 10

The first one may have scared the bee-jeebus out of us, but we’ll be going to see the second one anyway! Set several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a doll maker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home.  They soon become the target of the doll maker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.

Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets
Release date: Thursday August 10
Cara Delevingne
returns to the big screen to lead this galactic sci-fi adventure alongside Dan DeHaan. Valerian (DeHaan) and Laureline (Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. When a dark force threatens the peaceful city of Alpha, Valerian and Laureline must race against time to identify the menace that also jeopardizes the future of the universe.

The Dark Tower
Release date: Thursday August 17
When Idris Elbas and Matthew McConaughey join forces, you know you’re in for a good time.  After several setbacks along the way including multiple failed screen writes, loyal lovers of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series will be pleased to finally see the action come to the big screen. The film tells the story of Ronald Deschain (Elba), the last gunslinger, who is locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim (a less than chill McConaughey), also known as the Man in Black. With the fate of worlds at stake, two men collide in the ultimate battle between good and evil.

Logan Lucky
Release date: Thursday August 17
Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Sebastian Stand and Daniel Craig. Do we need to say much more? Trying to reverse a family curse, siblings Jimmy (Tatum), Mellie (Riley Keough), and Clyde Logan (Driver) set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina during Memorial Day weekend.

 

The Hitman’s Bodyguard
Release Date: Thursday August 31

Although it’s action in genre, we can guarantee some comedy in there with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson taking lead roles. When the world's top bodyguard gets a new client - a hit man who must testify at the International Court of Justice – they must put their differences aside and work together to make it to the trial on time.
