2017 is here and we are already rather excited about certain upcoming releases scheduled for the first quarter of the year.

So many cool new projects lie ahead and we had a hard time picking just 5 of them, which means only one thing – this is shaping up to be another awesome year for cinematography.

1. “The Lego Batman Movie”

One of the most anticipated animation action adventure is hitting theaters on February 10, 2017. The plot focuses on Bruce Wayne who must deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also faces the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.

Let’s hope it manages to live up to the expectations like “The Lego Movie” did two years ago.

Prepare for a yet another dose of beautifully colorful chaos delivered by an awesome cast: Rosario Dawson, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Mariah Carey, Will Arnett, Jenny Slate…

2. “Logan”


Since movie Logan will be the last time we see Hugh Jackman pop up those vicious blades as Wolverine, this is truly a must.

The story sees Wolverine and Professor X, a duo who must protect a young female clone of Wolverine from an evil organization led by Nathanial Essex.

The cast reads: Hugh Jackman, Boyd Holbrook, Doris Morgado, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant…

The premier’s scheduled for March 3, 2017.

3. “T2 Trainspotting”


We are so freaking out about the Trainspotting sequel, and you should be too. The second movie is going to be a simple continuation of the Trainspotting saga, reuniting the original characters once again.

We can’t wait for it to hit theaters on March 10, 2017.

4. “Ghost In The Shell”


Ghost In The Shell is perhaps the most anticipated action sci-fi drama of 2017. The first trailer alone continues to raise both hype and certain eye-brows, and we can’t wait to see it when it hits big screens on March 29, 2017.

Based on the famous manga by Masamune Shirow, the story focuses on a cyborg policewoman who attempts to bring down a nefarious computer hacker. The cast includes: Scarlett Johansson, Michael Wincott, Michael Pitt, Juliette Binoche, Rila Fukushima…

5. “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2”


Baby Groot is THE character at the moment, but you will have to wait until May 5, 2017 to see the second installment of this increasingly popular franchise. The beloved gang is back as they continue their adventures and unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

The cast reads: Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Kurt Russell…
