The next year promises to be a big one at the movie theater. 2016 set a new record for box office revenue, with $11.37 billion in receipts for the year, and it did so largely on the backs of massive action movies from franchises like Marvel, Star Wars, and the DCEU. This year looks to be even more successful, thanks to a ton of 2017 action movies you're going to want to see. In addition to the previously-mentioned franchises all debuting new films, other moneymaking machines like Fast & Furious, Transformers, and Pirates of the Caribbean are returning as well, plus loads of other great looking adrenaline-fueled films.
While many of these movies are the huge-budgeted blockbusters fans have come to expect when they think of action movies, there are a number of smaller actioners as well. Sequels to John Wick and The Kingsman should satisfy those who root for underdog franchises, while films from directors like Guy Ritchie, Edgar Wright, and Denis Villeneuve will appeal to fans of auteurs. Plus, there are an unusually high number of female-led action flicks coming out this year, which hopefully signifies a growing trend in Hollywood. So take a look below at the 32 most-anticipated action movies coming out in 2017.
