Flickering Myth’s Top Ten Movies of 2017

Flickering Myth’s writing team present our top ten movies of 2017…

With 2017 drawing to a close in just a few hours, the writers here at Flickering Myth have been voting on our favourite films of the past twelve months, in order to present our top ten movies of the year.

As with previous years, our writers each presented their own individual top tens, which we used to collate the overall list. We’ve gone by U.S. release dates, and as many of our writers are U.K. based, films such as The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri may well have featured much higher had we all had a chance to see them.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s the Top Ten…

The Disaster Artist

Directed by James Franco.

Starring Dave Franco, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Zac Efron, Zoey Deutch, Josh Hutcherson, Sharon Stone,

‘Please Stand By’ Trailer: Dakota Fanning Writes A ‘Star Trek’ Script

Is it time for the Dakota Fanning-aissance? The actress held the Fanning family limelight for a quite a while, but it has since been overtaken by her sister Elle Fanning. However, with a hotly buzzed new series coming soon with “The Alienist,” and now this movie, perhaps it’s time for Dakota Fanning to regain a bit of shine.

Co-starring Toni Collette, Alice Eve, Patton Oswalt, and Tony Revolori, and directed Ben Lewin (“The Sessions,” the upcoming “The Catcher Was A Spy” which is headed to Sundance), the unique premise follows a young, autistic woman who has written an epic “Star Trek” script.

Dakota Fanning Is Star Trek's Biggest Fan in Please Stand By Trailer
Magnolia Pictures has released the first trailer and photo for Please Stand By, which tells the epic story of one big Star Trek fan trying to get her story out into the world. The film had its world premiere at the Austin Film Festival in October, while also screening at the Rome Film Festival and the Virginia Film Festival over the last few months. While this isn't exactly a Star Trek movie, it will be interesting to see how Star Trek fans spark to this unique story.

A young autistic woman runs away from her caregiver in order to boldly go and deliver her 500-page Star Trek script to a writing competition in Hollywood. On an adventure full of laughter and tears, Wendy, played with exquisite delicacy by Dakota Fanning, follows the guiding spirit of Mr. Spock on her journey into the unknown.

We never knew how badly we needed a new Spider-Man until we saw Spider-Man: Homecoming.

One of the most beloved superheroes in existence, there's a reason why Spidey keeps making it back to the big screen. Now available at the Cineplex Store, this time, Peter officially joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe (not including his scene-stealing appearance in Captain America: Civil War last year), and it's this union of Spider-Man with the rest of The Avengers (well, really just his mentor Iron Man) that sets Spider-Man: Homecoming apart from the past iterations of this character.

We loved Spider-Man: Homecoming so much that we're giving you 5 reasons why you need to see the film for the first or second time (because we'll be heading back to relive the fun

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming featured a nice little Easter egg for fans of Miles Morales, as Donald Glover’s Aaron Davis reveals to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man that he had a nephew living in the city. However, a deleted scene has surfaced online which features a much less subtle reference, with Aaron name-dropping Miles as he speaks to him on the phone whilst still webbed to his car following his earlier encounter with the wall-crawler.

Spider-Man: Homecoming becomes the highest-grossing superhero movie of the year

Earlier this month, Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming became the highest-grossing reboot of all time, thanks in no small part to its solid opening in China, and now the film has overtaken Wonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy to become the biggest superhero movie of the year so far.

By close of play this weekend, Homecoming has grossed $874.4 million, compared to $863.4 million for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, $819.6 million for Wonder Woman, and $616.8 million for Logan. It is also the fourth-biggest release of the year behind Beauty and the Beast ($1.263 billion), The Fate of the Furious ($1.239 billion) and Despicable Me 3 (1.019 billion).

In terms of the Spider-Man franchise, Homecoming still trails the franchise leader Spider-Man 3, which grossed $890.9 million back in 2017.

Spider-Man: Homecoming becomes highest-grossing reboot of all time

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming finally made its way to the Middle Kingdom this weekend, with the Sony and Marvel produced reboot enjoying a solid $22.2 million opening day, with a further $1.5 million in Friday previews. The wall-crawler’s solo McU debut has now amassed a worldwide haul of $770 million, making it the highest-grossing reboot of all time – a record previously held by 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man on $757 million.

According to projections from Forbes, Homecoming will likely pass $800 million globally this weekend thanks to its debut in China, and could potentially reach as high as $880 million – which would put it ahead of Wonder Woman ($814 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($863 million) to make it the biggest superhero movie of the year so far. However, to become the highest-grossing entry in the Spider-Man franchise it would need to shift a few more tickets however, with 2007’s Spider-Man 3 sitting on $891 million.

Spider-Man: Homecoming and Despicable Me 3 share Japan box office

Spider-Man: Homecoming has failed to come out on top during its opening weekend in Japan.

Japan might not have the market power of China in the box office world, but it’s still an important location for Hollywood’s biggest films to do well in.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the latest blockbuster to open in the market but it has ended up splitting the top spot with Despicable Me 3.

Homecoming may have debuted number one by box office takings, bringing in $4.1 million to Despicable Me 3‘s $3.7 million, but Japan ranks its box office by admissions, not money earned.

Debuting last weekend, Homecoming had 290,000 admissions which is below Despicable Me’s 328,000. And considering Despicable Me 3 is in its fourth weekend, this isn’t the result Spider-Man would have hoped for.

This was, however, 7% better than The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which finished its Japanese run with $28.7 million (not accounting for
