From fast cars to invisible planes and superheroes to spaceships, 2017 is shaping up to be a bumper year at the box office. Once again the blockbuster landscape is dominated by reboots, sequels and spinoffs. Some we can’t wait to see (like the long-awaited ‘Blade Runner 2049’ and the further adventures of Rey and Finn in ’Star Wars: The Last Jedi’). Others we still need to be convinced about (‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’, ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’). But with the odd original property (Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’) and a few intriguing gambles (will megabudget Stephen King adaptation ‘The Dark Tower’ please fans or flop badly?) this should be a fun, satisfying, not-too-challenging 12 months at the multiplex.
