Analysing The 2017 Sci-Fi Box Office Bombs Featuring Blade Runner 2049, Valerian & More

I’ve noticed a disturbing trend in 2017, where fresh, unique and lesser known properties in the sci-fi genre have been suffering at the box office. Blade Runner 2049 (beloved by critics) was a bomb, Valerian (not so beloved, but I enjoyed it anyway) was a disappointment on global returns while franchises like Transformers and Guardians of The Galaxy continue to dominate cinemas.

Alien: Covenant is Visually Rich & Emotionally Satisfying – I Love Michael Fassbender (Review)

Alien: Covenant is Visually Rich & Emotionally Satisfying – I Love Michael Fassbender (Review)

I’ve been looking forward to Alien: Covenant for a while.  There’s something about this franchise that just gets me where I live.  Even when it’s combined with the Predator franchise, even when it’s Prometheus.  I just like bio-horror.  The face-hugger, those magnificent eggs, the chest-burster, the slick big-daddy aliens, the pulsating queens – I love all of it.  And Alien: Covenant has something else I love:  Michael Fassbender.  Fair warning, in this review I’m going to talk about him a lot.

Sean’s Most Anticipated Movies of 2017: Logan, Beauty and the Beast & Star Wars

Sean’s Most Anticipated Movies of 2017: Logan, Beauty and the Beast & Star Wars

Let’s be honest – 2016 was the most underwhelming year at the movies in recent memory. While there was a fair of number great and entertaining movies, the wait between seeing memorable ones felt longer than usual. And while, as the trades have reported, it was another record-breaking year at the box office, inflation diminished the return of some of the biggest movies of 2016.

Thankfully, 2016 is out of the way and 2017 has arrived and studios are doubling down on tentpole movies.

As such, it was difficult to pick five movies I’m most looking forward to in 2017.
