At the height of the film award season, while everyone is discussing the best films of the past year, we decided to make predictions for the future. And they made a waiting list of the most sensational films of 2017, which are preparing for release by five famous directors.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Luc Besson
In July this year, the French director Luc Besson, whose work we missed, promises to present us his new creation – the fantastic action "Valerian and the city of a thousand planets." The picture is based on the famous French comic book, and talks about comic special agents traveling in time and space. Among other things, the interest in the film is cast. The company Dane DeHaan, Ethan Hawke and others will make the stars of show business – Cara Delevingne and Rihanna.
The Cheated, Sofia Coppola
Another director whose film enthusiasts await with special curiosity is Sofia Coppola. The last film of her authorship we saw back in 2013 – "Elite Society". In the same year, she will present to the public a remake of the 1971 painting "Deceived" with the then young Clint Eastwood in the title role. The plot tells of a wounded soldier hiding in a boarding school for girls during the Civil War. The entire female team of the institution surrounds the guy with care, and the pupils begin the struggle for the attention of a charming fighter. The main role in the film adaptation will be played by Colin Farrell, who will charm the screen heroines El Fanning, Kirsten Dunst and Nicole Kidman. The world premiere of the picture is scheduled for June 23.
“Mom”, Darren Aronofsky
Darren Aronofsky, the author of the thrillers Pi and Black Swan, promises to please fans with the new psychological drama Mom, which he will most likely present at the Toronto Film Festival in the fall of 2017. This will be a dramatic story about a young couple, whose measured life is broken by unexpected guests. Perhaps the plot does not sound very intriguing, but the claimed cast is impressive. The film involves Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer.
Lucky Logan, Stephen Soderberg
Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh, author of Ocean's Eleven Friends, decided to return to the genre of adventure crime comedy. In the new film, the main characters will be two brothers planning a robbery during NASCAR races. They are embodied by Channing Tatum and Adam Driver. But on this the star caste does not end. Supporting roles went to Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank and the star of the series "Call Girl" Riley Kio. The film will premiere on October 13th.
Woody Allen Project
One of the most productive directors, the indefatigable Woody Allen releases a picture a year. And this year he does not intend to pause. In the fall of 2017, at the Cannes Film Festival, he promises to present his new picture, which has not yet received an official name. So far, all that is known about her is that it will be a drama shot in the classical style of the early Allen. And the main roles in it went to an unusual caste – Kate Winslet, Juneau Temple, Justin Timberlake and James Belushi.
