We've looked at the films to be released in 2017 and found it a tough year to narrow down to 10 films, hence there are many potentially excellent films missed off this list.

After much debate and arguing, and some falling out and fist fighting, here is our list of films the 25thFrame staff are hoping will be the best of the bunch in 2017.

Blade Runner 2049
Its 35 years later, 35 years where a sequel has been promised many time, but here we are, the trailer released only a few weeks ago was a tantalising sample of what is to come.

No Ridley Scott this time but director Denis Villeneuve looks like he can deliver the good, and with Harrison Ford back and Ryan Gosling starring we could be in for a treat.

Star Wars Episode VIII
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story delivered but didn't wow but the follow up to 2015's Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens should deliver in spades and its possibly our most anticipated film of the year, and we have to wait until December!

Rian Johnson has directed this instalment which is no bad thing, and as with all Star Wars films the ensemble cast all return, with the recent passing of Carrie Fisher it will be a sad moment if they complete the story arc of Princess Leah, but one which is necessary.

T2 Trainspotting
20 years after Trainspotting the guys are back for another dose of hard hitting, drug taking antics that will have us transfixed again.

Danny Boyle returns to direct with original stars Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle and Ewen Bremner all returning.

Ghost In The Shell
Scarlett Johansson controversially stars in this live action version of the acclaimed manga animation, but judging from the trailer they have hit the right note.

Rupert Sanders directs what promises to be one hell of a ride in the special effects heavy take that potentially no one will understand.

War For The Planet of The Apes
The third in the excellent prequel films which tells the story of how earth became The Planet of The Apes.

Special effects and motion capture are now at a point where we can truly believe that these apes have personalities and intelligence.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2
Just from the trailer alone you know you want to see this and Baby Groot will be the highlight of the cinema year, and the film actually looks really good.

James Gunn returns to direct Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper in this Marvel franchise film.

Alien Covenant
Sequel to Prometheus and prequel to Alien, directed by Ridley Scott, not too much riding on this then.

Prometheus was Alien enough to be part of the series but individual enough to be a film in its own right, looking at the fist trailer for Alien Covenant this could bridge the gap really well, we hope so.

Fifty Shades Darker
The original film delivered far more than the source material dictated, and it was actually a good film, worryingly this time Sam Taylor-Johnson is not returning to direct.

James Foley is directing this instalment but Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are returning so the chemistry should still be there in this much darker tale.

The Mummy
A reboot of the 1999 franchise which spawned 3 movies, but got worse with each film, this time Tom Cruise stars and the first trailer looks like we could have a winner on our hands.

Pitch Perfect 3
Our guilty pleasure, the first film was one of the highlights of 2012 and although not nearly as good part 2 was still a lot of fun, time will tell if the idea is getting a little thin now.

A little late reporting on this weeks charts with the figures arriving the following weekend due to the Christmas break.

UK audiences were in the mood for the Galaxy Far Far Away over the Christmas week with Rogue One staying at the top, maybe a fitting tribute as we said goodbye to Princess Leah.

With the new coming in over the festive period that actress Carrie Fisher sadly passed away what better tribute to pay than keeping Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at number one with £5.6 million on its second weekend.

This brings the films total gross to £33.9 million, an excellent gross in normal circumstances but this is a star wars film and the film is falling far short of last years Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Highest new entry of the week is Passengers which after bad reviews still manages to land at number 2 with £2.4 million.

Both stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are involved with high grossing franchises so this is by no means a big opening for them and with the no so good reviews the film could sink quite quick.

Longest running film on the chart this week is Trolls which has been around for 10 weeks not and highest total grossing movie is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which has now grossed £47,469,530 after 6 weeks.

Historical charts

A year ago
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was still the top film on its second weekend while top new film was Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie which entered at 2.

Five years ago
Arthur Christmas went back to the top over the festive weekend while the top new film was Don 2 which entered at number 6.

Ten years ago
Happy Feet stayed at the top for a third week while and with a static top 10 the top new film was Bhagam Bhag at number 11.

Fifteen years ago
Kicking off one of the greatest series of all time The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring entered the box office at the top knocking off Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone after 5 weeks at the top.

Twenty years ago
101 Dalmatians stayed at the top for a second weekend while Matilda was the top new film of the week at number 3.

Twenty five years ago
The Addams Family was the top film of the week for a second weekend while Suburban Commando was the top new film which entered at 3.

This week horror sequel The Woman In Black Angel of Death makes its way to the top of the video chart on it's debut week of sale.

The Woman In Black Angel of Death was released at the UK box office on 2nd January 2015 as a sequel to the successful Daniel Radcliffe film of 2013 The Woman In Black.

The original went on to gross £21 million at the UK box office, this sequel was on the chart for 3 weeks, entered at number 4 and just about grossed £5 million, a relative failure in comparison.

Last weeks top film The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel falls just single place to number 2 after 2 weeks at the top.

Other new film this week are: The Tale of The Princess Kaguya at number 13 and The Voices at number 18.

On the final day of Star Wars Celebration during a panel including Gareth Edwards (director of Rogue One) and Kathleen Kennedy (producer) the plot line for Star Wars Rogue One was revealed.

Set before the events of the original Star Wars the film follows a group of Rebel fighters on their mission to steal the plans to the Death Star.

The same plans were then inserted onto R2-D2 by Princess Lia at the start of Star Wars.

A short teaser was also shown that showed a lush green forrest which finally reveals the Death Star hovering over the planet.

The film is set for release on 16th December with shooting set to start this summer, Felicity Jones is the only cast member announced so far.

Disney hold on to the top spot this week with their latest animated big screen movie Big Hero 6, and in a repeat of last week it only just out grosses Kingsman The Secret Service which holds at 2.

Another £2.5 million over the weekend sees the Hero 6's UK gross rise to £7.5 million from it's 11 days of release, including preview screenings.

Interestingly it was the weekend which gave Hero 6 the top spot, looking at the chart for the full week, Kingsman takes the top spot by nearly a million pound.

Highest new film of the week is from the Aardman animated studio, Shaun The Sheep Movie enters at number 4.

Shaun takes ££2 million for the weekend, not the numbers that Wallace and Gromit are used to but it's up there with other Aardman films.

Also new on the UK box office are: Jupiter Ascending from the Wachowski siblings at 4 and Selma at number 6.

Historical box office

Mr. Peabody and Sherman entered the box office at the top on it's debut weekend of release knocking The Wolf of Wall Street from the top to number 3.

After many rumours and fan debate Lucasfilm (and Disney) have announced the cast list for next years Star Wars Episode VII.

As if we didn't know already original cast members Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Lia) and Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) are all involved.

Also nice to see the likes of Andy Serkis and Max von Sydow involved.

With JJ Abrams behind the camera all we are looking for now is the full title of the film and poster art.

The press release on the starwars.com website reads as follows:

"The Star Wars team is thrilled to announce the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.

Director J.J. Abrams says, "We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud."

Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015."

In an unusual move this week, and maybe due to little in the way of new releases, Ron Howards Rush moves 1 place UP to the top of the box office chart.

Taking £1.3 million from the weekend Rush takes over at the top, simply swapping places with last weeks top film Insidious Chapter 2.

There was little in the way of new films, the biggest of which is the critically panned film Diana, about the life of the late Princess which landed at 5 with a small take of $pound;600,000.

A small side note, the latest Grand Theft Auto Game was released last Monday which may have kept the young and middle aged men from cinemas, as reflected in the new releases.

One year ago ParaNorman was still at the top with Killing them softly a way behind at 2 being the highest new film.

Five years ago Tropic Thunder was the top film new film of the week smashing the previous weeks number 1, Pinapple Express, down to 4.

Ten years ago the remake of The Italian Job was at the highest new film of the week entering at the top and knocking Calendar Girls down to 2.

And fifteen years ago there was no shifting Saving Private Ryan from the top although highest new film of the week Lethal Weapon 4 had a good go and came within a whisker, it landed at 2.

There was little buzz about this film other than the voice talent of Johnny Depp in the lead character role, Rango thus takes the top of the UK box office this week from another CG animated film.

Rango is the story of a lizard who winds up in the Wild West of America and you can guess what happens from there, queue many jokes based on the western genre! The film had a mediocre opening weekend in what has been a quiet week compared to recent weeks with a £1,638,613 weekend.

Runner up this week is another new entry in the shape of Matt Damon in The Adjustment Bureau, the George Nolfi directed film took £1,395,715 over the weekend.

Finishing a trio of new released at the top of the box office this week is the Liam Neeson starring Unknown. The thriller for which Neeson is starting to pigeon hole himself into is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and took £1,356,345.

For the top 3 it was a fairly close call all-round.

Frost and Pegg are at number 4 with their Alien film Paul which has a weekend take of £1,109,766 with a total gross of £12,207,049, and getting over the hangover of the award season if The Kings Speech which is now at 3 with a weekend of £1,076,381 which brings its total now to £41,930,117. Last weeks top film, Gnomeo and Juliet, falls all the way to 6 this week, quite a drop post school holiday, but Rango is direct competition and took much of its potential this week.

Compared to last year this weeks box office is way lower, last year Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland (3D) opened at the top of the chart with an excellent £10 million plus opening which is more than the combined top 15 this week, the rest of the top 5 last year was almost insignificant but Avatar was knocked off the top and The Crazies, The Lovely Bones and The Princess and the Frog all hang around but with diminishing returns.

With the school half term week and not so good weather hitting Britain the red and blue gnomes once again took hold of the box office chart leaving Paul having to make do with the second place.

Having already spent a week at the top Gnomeo and Juliet climb back up with a half term weekend take of £2,502,806 which boosts its takings over 3 weeks to a very health £12,901,447.

Last week top film falls to number two, clearly not being as kiddie friendly as the Gnomes with a gross of £2,073,462 giving it a 10 day total of £10,110,433.

Highest new entry of the week is the sci-fi thriller I am Number Four which should have appealed in numbers to the teen on half term but has a fairly mellow debut with £1,628,523.

Yogi Bear kept the kids happy over the school break and adds another £1,465,863 to its £7,635,574 total at 4 and Tangled completes a very kid friendly top 5 with £1,352,104 for a very impressive £19,130,723 total.

Again this week's box office was way above this time last year when Avatar was still at the top and closing in on being the first UK film to take £100 million at the box office, while Peter Jacksons The Lovely Bones climbed to number 2. Horror film The Crazies debuted at 3 and The Frog Princess and Percy Jackson hung around the top 5.

This week the Simon Pegg/Nick Frost written film Paul tops the UK box office chart with a weekend take of £5,517,121. The film from the producers of Hot Fuzz have taken their craft to America to make a film about a couple of geeks seeking out aliens in Area 51, only to find one that sounds like Seth Rogan.

Dropping a single place after one week is Gnomeo and Juliet which has another impressive weekend with £2,223,978 taking its total gross to £6,373,301.

Still riding a high on its award buzz, and it wont stop anytime soon with the big one coming this weekend, is The Kings Speech, another million plus weekend with £1,685,180 which brings it's total now to £37,127,599.

True Grit this week falls to number 4 with £1,466,979 while Martin Lawrence flogs a dead horse at 5 with a new Big Mommas House film, this time dragging his poor son into the equation with a weekend take of £1,433,778.

A stella weekend last week has meant that the top 7 films on the chart all took above £1 million.

Compared to this time last year the chart is much higher is grosses. Last year Avatar was still doing massive business at the box office as the 3D tax was really starting to show how far it can take the gross of a film while The Princess and the Frog from Disney was still doing well at 2, highest new entry was Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones at 3.

Tangled maintained its position at the top of the UK box office chart this week with a non-too shabby weekend gross of £4,569,135 which is only down just over half a million on the previous week, not bad, this means also that the overall gross over 10 days stands at £ 10,742,265.

Retaining it number 2 spot is The Kings Speech which is still managing to impress, not only at the box office but at the continuous awards ceremonies at this time of year, a weekend take of £2,739,204 brings its gross of 5 weeks to £30,014,606.

Highest new entry of the week The Fighter, another Oscar contender for many awards the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and is directed by David O. Russell. A weekend take of £ 2,118,140 is good considering the competition.

Black Swan drops a single place to 4 with £1,725,630 while new at 5 is the James Cameron presented Sanctum, it's not doing the same numbers as a Cameron directed film and is maybe a little disappointing with £ 859,064.

Again this weeks box office is a little higher than this time last year where Avatar was still the top film and still raking in a weekend take of over £4million. Highest new entry was Disney's The Frog Princess with Astro Boy following and Invictus not far behind. Sherlock Holmes was still hanging onto the top 5.

Having already done big business in the US and currently standing as the 104th all time grossing film in the world Tangled this week tops the UK box office chart.

The new traditional film, as in hand drawn rather than CGI (although computers were used in the production) is the story of Rapunzel, although I think this Rapunzel is a little less the princess in the tower type. Over the weekend is tool a respectable £5,106,612.

Falling to number 2 this week after 3 weeks on top is The King's Speech, a weekend gross of £ 3,634,265 takes it's total to £24,905,378. With many awards in the bag and many more to come expect this to hang around for a while and gross a lot more.

Also in award contention is the number 3 film Black Swan, Natalie Portman is picking up actress awards left right and center and its gross reflects this with £2,566,346 last weekend and £7,305,659 in total.

Jason Statham makes a debut at 4 this week with The Mechanic taking £921,554 and The Dilemma is at 5 taking £669,368 expanding its gross to £2,292,011. This weeks box office is quite a bit up on last years where Avatar was still at the top but slowing down and Mel Gibson was the highest new entry with Edge of Darkness.

Disney hit the right note this year with the hand drawn The Princess and the Frog, a time honored traditional story that went against the current form and used drawing rather than computers to animate. Disney have released a trailer for their next drawn animation called Tangled, but why the change of name from Repunzel?

Every one is familiar with the original story of a girl locked in a tower by her wicker step mother and her only outlet to the world is a prince who gets to her by climbing her amazingly long hair.

Now I can see where Disney is coming from with the name change, it must be a nightmare keeping so much hair from not getting in a bit of a knot, but were all familiar with the original title and the fairy tale why change it.

At the end of the day simple put Disney can change the title if they wish and check out the trailer below, it does look promising, and it goes without saying that it will be in 3D.

It's the time of year again when the Oscar hype machine will go into overdrive in the period between the nominations being announced and the ceremony itself.

This year there are two films which are ahead of the rest, and two films which are total contrasts in style. James Cameron has continued to astound everyone by getting a nomination for best picture and best director, and his film Avatar has managed nine nomination in total with the others being in the technical department.

Kathryn Bigelow's (who happens to be Camerons ex-wife) The Hurt Locker has also managed nine nominations, best picture and best director being two of then, the picture has also got a nomination for it's star Jeremy Renner as a leading actor.

The best picture category this year include 10 films (is that too many) so we have the likes of The Blind Side and Inglourious Basterds along side British hopeful An Education as well as South African sci-fi film District 9, and a first in that Up is nominated for best film and best animated film.

Best film and director is going to be a battle between Cameron and Bigelow, but the rest of the awards are an open field, so lets wait and see what heppens on March 7th at the 82nd Academy Awards Ceremony.
