Beauty and The Beast
Scheduled Release: March 17
Director: Bill Condon
Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens
Belle is a damsel in distress, who, in exchange of the freedom of her father, Maurice, has offered to stay in the captivity of a beast. However, things progress into the ‘unexpected’ when Belle becomes friends with the castle’s staff, and also, realizes how generous, loving and human the beast is. She realizes that the monstrosity of the love in his heart is quite a contrast to his monstrous looks.
Meanwhile, in the parallel universe, Gaston, the hunter, is hatching plans to steal Belle for himself, and kill the beast.
Scheduled Release: March 24
Director: Dean Israelite
Cast: Naomi Scott, Elizabeth Banks, Dacre Montgomery
Power Rangers, this time, is about maximum thrills and frenzy breaking the barriers. The movie is sure to go beyond all what it has done and achieved so far.
Five teens, as of a consequence of coincidence or destiny probably, unite to emerge the new-generation warriors under the name ‘Power Rangers’. They are entrusted with the responsibility of shielding the world when Rita Repulsa, a witch and an ex-Power Ranger, who, in cahoots with the army of stone golems ‘Puttie’ and a giant monster ‘Goldar’, opens a deadly attack on the Avenger troop to win the Zeo Crystal.
The Fate of the Furious
Scheduled Release: April 14
Director: F. Gary Gray
Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron
Fast cards, exponential speeds, mad races and an adrenaline rush of living life on the edge. That’s what we expect from ‘The Fate of the Furious’, a 2017 addition to the super-successful the Fast and Furious franchise.
Dom and Letty are honeymooning, while Brian and Mia have also ceased to be the part of the game. The team, after experiencing and surviving some high-tension roads quests in all these years, chooses normalcy over anything else. But soon, a woman enters, lures Dom into the world of crime, and upsets the ordinariness of home lives that was hard-achieved. Dom betrays his closest, and puts his coterie to crucial tests of survival and victory.
The choices given are simple – Ride or Die?
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Scheduled Release: May 5
Director: James Gunn
Cast: Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana
The entire plot of the movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, circles around Peter Quill’s real parentage. Weaved out of the best elements of fictional cinema, the movie traverses across space, the unknown infinite, only to dig out the real details about the whole puzzle of Quill’s roots.
Pirates of the Caribbean : Dead Men Tell No Tales

Transformers: The Last Knight
Scheduled Release: June 23
Director: Michael Bay
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson
In the absence of Optimus Prime – the leader of the Autobots – a battle between transformers and the human race ensues. To understand why Transformers keep returning to the Earth, Cade Yeager makes a step forward, and collaborates with Bumblebee and an Oxford professor.
Despicable Me 3
Scheduled Release: June 30
Directors: Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda
Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker
The Despicable Me is a box office smasher, and we except nothing less from the third instalment to the series. The Minions are the end-products of the most splendid animation type our generation has ever seen.
Gru, a black-dressed, nefarious man, gets to meet his long-lost twin Dru, who is a clone to him, except his hair and the all-white dress. But, contrary to the usual feels of love and compassion that ignite when you see the long-lost relatives, Gru develops some strange animosity towards Dru.
Meanwhile, the antagonist, Balthazar Bratt, having a serious obsession with bubblegum and Michael Jackson, emerges as a big, big problem.
Spider Man : Homecoming
Scheduled Release: July 7
Director: Jon Watts
Cast: Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr, Tom Holland
The quintessential storyline is maintained – A cute-looking, high-school goer, Peter Parker, strives every bit to balance his ordinary student side with his extraordinarily heroic side of being a Spider Man, the city’s saviour. However, the antagonist of the movie – Vulture – is stronger than ever, and Spider Man, like his usual best, puts up a great fight to neutralize him.
Blade Runner 2049
Scheduled Release: October 6
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Cast: Harrinson Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright
Blade Runner won plaudits for its incredible storyline and power-packed performances. And now, we believe, the mojo will be recreated with the second Blade Runner instalment, starring the original man, Harrison Ford, alongside Ryan Gosling for this uber-terrific dystopian adventure.
There are many movies in the genre of sci-fi, which try to hit the nail right on its head, but unfortunately, fail. But, we expect, Blade Runner 2049 to be on the point to become another classic of this era.
Star Wars: Episode VIII
Scheduled Release: December 15
Director: Rian Johnson
Cast: Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher
Star Wars Franchise is the best scoop on the genre of science fiction by all standards, and as per the string of teaser leaks (read spoilers) ahead of the Episode VIII’s release, showcasing thrills, locations, and looks, we’re well convinced that it’s going to be a marathon of action.
Kylo Ren is reported to look differently (with a scar on the face), and continues to unite with Poe, Finn and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter.
Also, rumors are rife that the movie will show an all-new training session for Luke Skywalker and Rey.
