2017 also brings us a more serious movie on the white screen. Dunkirk is a movie about the Second World War.

They landed on the shores of Dunkirk, but soon it appeared that the German soldiers surrounded them and they had no place to go. As the Nazi soldiers closed in on them, a miraculous and mighty brave team of people did all they could to bring the Allies to safety.

2. Fast and Furious 8 (April 2017)
Director: F. Gary Gray
Cast: Charlize Theron, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham
The eight movie in the Fast and Furious series continues where the seventh movie left off. A story that revolves around the biggest, baddest and most of all fastest vehicles is always a guarantee for a bumpy ride. Charlize Theron shines as the movie’s villain Cipher, and almost outshines all the tough guys in this movie, with her powerful acting skills and independent roles. Michelle Rodriguez also returns in her role of Letty Ortiz, the main character’s wife and coincidentally also a rough-riding street racer.
The city of new York proves to be a worthwhile shooting location, as always and really adds an atmosphere to the motion picture.
