- STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII
A film which needs no marketing and one that doesn’t even have a title yet is easily the most anticipate film of 2017. Director Rian Johnson picks up the story of young Rey, Fin, and Poe as they help the Resistance continue to thwart the Nazi-esque plans of The First Order as Republic continues to doubt the existence of giant spherical super weapons. So long as Star Wars 8 avoids an intro on a snow planet with large walkers, then the second installment of the third Star Wars trilogy should be something special. And Luke Skywalker will speak!

- GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2
Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand.
We had the opportunity to visit the set of GOTG 2 last summer and most of what we learned has been released online already, but if you love the Guardians, there’s even more to love in the sequel!

3. JUSTICE LEAGUE
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
We had the chance to visit the set of Justice League where everyone involved understood the feedback of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and were looking to make something different this time around.
