2017 has come and gone, sure there is are still two weeks left, but everyone is turning their attentions to next year – making their predictions on films they thing are going to succeed. My predictions will be coming soon, but I thought it would be best to go back over the predictions I made last year for 2017. Just in case you didn’t know, I made three prediction lists for 2017, 1] “Films that you need to watch in 2017“, 2] “Films that might fail” and 3] “Why are they making these films next year?“.

I am very good at predicting things (not to blow my own horn), but I pretty much get everything right. So, here are my reaction to the predictions I made last year – to see if I was right or wrong.

1] PREDICTING 2017’S HITS.

First up are my predictions on the films, are the films I said you should watch in 2017, these were:

  1. THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE
  2. LOGAN
  3. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
  4. FAST 8
  5. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2
  6. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: SALAZAR’S REVENGE
  7. WONDER WOMAN
  8. TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT
  9. DESPICABLE ME 3
  10. SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING
  11. WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES
  12. CARS 3
  13. DUNKIRK
  14. THOR RAGNAROK
  15. JUSTICE LEAGUE
  16.  STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII 

I mean, I know I went for really obvious choices, and when I re-do them this year I will try to go for more risky ones. Bur, as assumed all have done fairly well – I did mess up one or two like Transformers and Despicable Me 3, but I thought although they may not be the best films they would make the most money. But it turns out they made the least amount of money out of the franchise. And didn’t include IT and some other films, but nevertheless I did make some good prediction. Also, I have been really slacking at the moment. To think I have only reviewed five of these films

2] FILMS THAT WERE IN FOR A ROUGH RIDE

Now onto the interesting ones….

Second are up are my predictions for the films I thought might not have the easiest of times in 2017:

  1. KONG: SKULL ISLAND
  2. POWER RANGERS
  3. WORLD WAR Z 2
  4. THE MUMMY
  5. THE DARK TOWER
  6. KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE
  7. ALIEN CONVERT
  8. BLADE RUNNER 2049
  9. JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

These predictions are my pride and joy, the only thing that would’ve have made this list perfect would’ve been if I included Baywatch. If I included that, this would’ve been the best prediction list I have ever done. If you read my full post, every single explanation I give turns out to be true. Kong: Skull Island made money but can no way be considered a box office smash like Godzilla was deemed, and their has to be a few questions about their planned franchise. Power Rangers, The Mummy, The Dark Tower, Alien and Blade Runner all flopped. Jumanji has yet to release any information and World War Z 2 (like I guessed!) wasn’t even released. The only one I messed up was Kingsman 2, which did succeed and is getting a third movie, I thought it wouldn’t do as well because at that time I didn’t even see any marketing for it but I guess I was wrong. But, nevertheless, I am just too good at this.

3] 2017 FLOPS

  1. SMURFS – LOST VILLAGE
  2. THE EMOJI MOVIE
  3. KING ARTHUR : LEGEND OF THE SWORD
  4. FRIDAY THE 13TH

First off, once again, the predictions I made were all pretty much correct. The only one I got wrong was The Emoji Movie, I had faith in humanity – OK. I thought the film wouldn’t be bad – and I haven’t watched it to know (OK?), I thought that it would flop because it is a movie about emojis. I mean c’mon, how the hell was I supposed to do the new generation will watch anything so long it is a cartoon. Whilst it wasn’t a wild success, it did make money and definitely can’t be considered a flop. But, I am proud of my other guesses, if you read the post, you will see I knew exactly why King Arthur will flop. STOP GIVING FILMS TO GUY RITCHIE (please God, let Jon Faverau have some input into Aladdin)

I know it is a bit ridiculous but thought it would be fun too see what I was thinking last year. Stay tuned for my predictions for next year. Thanks
