Unmissable Films to look forward to in 2017


First Lady Jackie Onassis Kennedy was well-known for her elegance, so casting Natalie Portman to play her seems more than fitting. Jackie follows her through the days immediately after her husband’s assassination as she tries to cope with the events, look after their children and maintain JFK’s legacy.

The Founder

It’s based on the true story of Ray Kroc who made McDonald’s a global phenomenon, so it’ll give you something to think about next time you’re grabbing that 2am Big Mac. Plus, it stars Nick Offerman (aka Parks And Recreation‘s Ron Swanson) as one of the chain’s original founders, the McDonald brothers.

Hidden Figures

Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monaé portray the African-American women who worked as mathematicians at NASA and helped the US to put a man in space. Their story has never been told on the big screen before and from first looks it should be an inspiring and empowering watch.

Beauty & The Beast

Emma Watson plays Belle in this new version of the Disney classic and she’s had some input in updating it for the 21st century world. In it, Belle is given more of a backstory than just being an outsider – this time it’s her, not her father, who is an inventor.

T2: Trainspotting

It’s one of the most highly-anticipated films of the year. Thank God, then, it arrives in January so all our answers about what Sick Boy, Begbie and co have been doing for the last 20 years.


It’s Harry Styles’ first part in a major movie, which is intriguing if nothing else. Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh will also appear as they retell the story of Allied soldiers evacuated from Dunkirk after being cut off from the French mainland by the German army in 1940.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

The Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 plot involves Captain Jack Sparrow’s quest for the legendary Trident of Poseidon, which will give him control over the entirety of the oceans.
