All the movies you’ve been waiting for are now here (well, almost all). Loaded with new thrillers and sequels, 2017’s movie lineup is bound to have you in theatres every other week. Here are some must-see titles.
It is horror? NO! More like an intense psychological thriller. Kevin (James McAvoy) struggles with dissociative identity disorder and lives with 24 different personalities – one still unknown. Led to abduct three girls, Kevin struggles to keep his personalities at bay, while his victims try to escape the terror.

The Space Between Us
Now we can’t forget a romance title out of the must-see list. This one is bound to have you in your feelings the whole way through. Imagine being born and raised in space for 16 years, only ever interacting with a limited number of people in your lifetime. That’s how life was for Elliot (Asa Butterfield) until taking his first adventure to earth. Overwhelmed at first, Elliot befriends a girl he met online (from space) to help him discover the realities of how he came to be. But like any good romance, there’s a plot twist! And for that, you’ll just have to hit the theatre.

Beauty and the Beast
Disney’s back at it again with the classic fairytale release. This time with Emma Watson playing Princess Belle, who is trapped in a castle with the beast, and eventually falls in love – obviously not for looks. Nothing beats the original animation, but this remake sure looks like it’ll be box office gold.

Another one? Yes, the Fast and Furious franchise continues. Just when we thought all the battles were settled in the 7th movie. Everyone is living the ‘normal’ life now but Dom turns for the worse it seems. It’s a matter of getting him back from the dark side of crime and reminding him which side he belongs on.

Daughter of Zeus and Princess of the Amazons – Wonder Woman finally has her own movie. She’s just as powerful and popular as her male counterparts in the Justice League. Gal Gadot who plays Wonder Woman is definitely one of DC’s best character match ups following Ben Affleck in Batman.
