Life can be so fast-paced these days. Whether we have jobs that keep us insanely busy, a schedule jam-packed with college classes, or if we are constantly shuttling the kids from piano to soccer, it seems we are in constant motion at all times.
It’s time we took time to slow down and smell the roses. Or, in this case, to eat buttery popcorn while enveloping ourselves in a fantasy world for two hours.
In the latter half of 2017, there are many movies set to hit the big screen, so take some time later this year to escape your everyday cares.
Larry Polhill would agree with this plan, as watching cinema is one of his biggest passions. By day, he is a busy investor and chief executive, but when he finds some free time in his schedule, he often spends it in darkened screening rooms watching the best movies Hollywood has to offer.
If you are as passionate about film as he is, the latter months of 2017 has plenty of releases worth seeing on the bog screen.
Let’s run down three of our favorites below.
1) Kingsman: The Golden Circle
The original Kingsman film injected British humor and wit into the action genre that desperately needed it several years ago, giving rise to an eagerly anticipated sequel.
In September, The Golden Circle will debut, putting our young dapper gentlemen in a tricky spot that may threaten the very existence of their organization.
In this movie, they run into Poppy, the leader of a criminal syndicate bent on eliminating the only group standing in the way of his plans.
After suffering a significant blow, the Kingsman head to America, where they will join forces with the Statesman, a spy group sharing their aims.
Featuring the cinematography and British humor that made the original film famous, opening night can’t come soon enough.
2) Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Can’t wait for fall? This month will see the release of the latest installment of The Pirates of the Caribbean.
Dead Men Tell No Tales brings Captain Jack and his crew back for another rollicking adventure as he hunts for the Trident of Poseidon, which is necessary to break the curse enslaving Will Turner on the Flying Dutchman since the events of At World’s End.
With plenty of amazing storytelling and big budget effects, watching this movie is a great way to spend a summer evening out on the town.
3) Wonder Woman
After playing a significant supporting role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans of Wonder Women clamored for her to get her own film.
This summer will see those wishes fulfilled, as she will be the main protagonist in a movie that focuses on how this child of a demi-god became the world’s most famous super-heroine.
Initial screenings have been a hit with critics, many of whom have proclaimed it to be one of the summer’s best blockbuster films.
This film will tell the story of how she left the Greek island of Paradise to help fight agents of Greek god Ares, who are portrayed to be behind the start of World War I.
