SHARE

As 2017 comes to an end, we decided to take a look back over the movies that came out this year.

In film, 2017 saw many movies killing it at the Box Office, from Disney remakes to super hero flicks.

Take a look at some of the best movies of 2017 (in no particular order):

Beauty and the Beast

The Disney classic was remade this year and was an instant hit with people all over the world.

Emma Watson took on the role of Belle, alongside a star-studded cast.

The real success? All the Chip cups sold around the world (mainly from Penneys).

Star awards: The Last Jedi

It was received mixed reviews, but we have to include the last Star Wars episode on this list.

In Carrie Fisher’s last ever movie, Mark Hamil returns alongside lead actress Daisy Ridley.

One of our favourite parts? Well a huge amount of the film was shot on Skellig Michael.

Daddy’s Home 2

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg reunited this year for the Daddy’s Home sequel – and it was hilarious.

Adding Mel Gibson and John Lithgow to the film series this time, this movie was laugh out loud funny.

 

The full cast jetted into Dublin this year too for the Irish premiere.

IT

One of the scariest movies ever made came back this year – and people were loving it (see what we did there).

Based on the original Stephen King novel, this one is seriously creepy, and was a huge hit with fans this year.

Logan

Another year, another X Men movie, but this might be our favourite spin off yet.

Hugh Jackman returned to play Logan in the self-titled flick, which was a huge box office hit.

Baby Driver

Another firm favourite this year was Baby Driver.

The film follows a young kid who becomes the getaway driver for a group of criminals.

With seriously cool music throughout, this is worth watching for the playlist alone.

Girls Trip

A comedy that was a true hit at the box office this year was Girl’s Trip.

Starring Queen Latifa and Jada Pinkett Smith, think Bridesmaids humour for this one.

Blade Runner 2049

One of the most highly anticipated movies of 2017 – fans went into overdrive for the return of Blade Runner.

This time adding Ryan Gosling into the mix, the movie brought original fans back out in there millions.

Home Again

A sweet rom com out this year, Home Again ticked all the boxes.

Starring Reese Witherspoon, the movie follows a newly single mother who ends up moving in three young guys trying to make a movie.

Of course there’s sexual tension with one of the younger men. You can guess the rest…

Lady Bird

Not only hasn’t the film stirred Oscar buzz, but Saoirse Ronan herself is rumoured to be getting another Oscar nod in 2018.

Lady Bird has already been critically acclaimed around the world.

The story follows a high school senior and her turbulent relationship with her mother.

Pitch Perfect 3

Ending the year on a high, the girls returned to sing one more time – and we’re loving it.

If you love a good musical movie, then this is the one for you.

T2 Trainspotting

Another highly anticipated movie this year was the sequel to Trainspotting.

The entire cast returned over 20 years after the original, and its as much of a rollercoaster ride as the original.

The movie follows a surgeon and his family and a scary revenge plot that is set to destroy their lives.
