Most Anticipated Movies of 2017

Media is one of the widest and strongest platforms that play a vital role in keeping us up-to-date. Television, film, and theater fall under the institution of media. The main purpose of a movie is entertainment. This is not all; most films have a moral/message that adds to our knowledge and enhances our experience.

Every year, The Cinema Industry presents us with new movies; many of them hit the box office every month. Like every year, this year included the cinema has many movies lined up for their audience to watch and enjoy. Following is a list that I am sharing, have a look!

1) Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle: – The 1995 adventure thriller Jumanji was a hit. This year, the film Jumanji will be released towards the end of 2017. The “Welcome to the Jungle” is the next part of the movie. However, according to Dwayne Johnson, the plot of the film has no similarity with the previous one; though one could probably say that it might be a sequel.

2) Coco: Coco is a 3D animated film that will be released in November by Walt Disney Pictures. This film revolves around a twelve-year-old boy named Miguel, who is passionate about music and wants to follow his dream and accomplish it even though his family has banned this profession for him. He is inspired by Ernesto de la Cruz. As the story progresses, Miguel is lost in the land of the dead where he meets another interesting character with whom he sets off on a journey that leads him to a road that unfolds his family history.
