There is no point re-emphasizing on how bad the first half of 2017 has been for Hollywood. It’s been a bloodbath at the box-office with every summer movie — expect ‘Dunkirk’, ‘War For the Planet of the Apes’, and ‘Wonder Women’ — getting slaughtered both by audiences. For a moment, even if we forget box-office there have been very few films that we can call good cinema (you can find the full list here). As we enter the next half of the year, our hope is that this is going to change.
The below list of upcoming movies in 2017 that give us at least some consolation that not all is lost.
9. The Shape Of Water
