2017 Box Office Predictionsby TheMovies101 | created - 10 Dec 2016 | updated - 10 Dec 2016 | Public
Here are my predictions for the 2017 highest grossing films and just to note that I will include Domestic Grosses and Overseas Grosses as well.
The list will be in Worldwide order though.
And just to say these predictions may not be true I mean look at 2016 with Batman V Superman we all though that could make all the money and cross 1 Billion easy but it couldn't even reach 900 Million so these guesses may not be true.
Anyway lets crack onto the list and see...
- Movies or TV
- IMDb Rating
- In Theaters
- Release Year
PG-13 | 152 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares for battle with the First Order.
Votes: 298,137 | Gross: $604.81M
Domestic Gross: 590 Million
Overseas Gross: 1.232 Billion
Worldwide Total: 1.822 Billion
Not much to say here I can just tell that this is going to the be highest grossing film of next year I mean The Force Awakens crossed 2 Billion and Rogue One looks like it could do well and besides it's Star Wars.
2. Les Gardiens de la Galaxie Vol.2 (2017)
Tous publics | 136 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill's true parentage.
Votes: 330,026 | Gross: $389.81M
Domestic Gross: 453 Million
Overseas Gross: 877 Million
Worldwide Total: 1.330 Billion
Guardians Of The Galaxy was probably the biggest surprise of 2014 I mean to think that it didn't feel like any other Marvel movie by having 70s/80s music, a frickin tree and racoon and the fact this came out the same year as Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
But what do you know it opened higher than most other movies of the MCU and grossed 773 Million Worldwide.
As most sequels to MCU movies come in normally they do tend to gross 1 billion eg: Iron Man 3 and Civil War. Especially if they cross over 700 million.
So this is definitely gonna pass 1 Billion.
3. La Belle et la Bête (2017)
Tous publics | 129 min | Family, Fantasy, Musical
An adaptation of the fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love.
Votes: 194,086 | Gross: $504.01M
Domestic Gross: 322 Million
Overseas Gross: 828 Million
Worldwide Total: 1.150 Billion
Disney's live action remakes have made bank recently I mean who knew that The Jungle Book was going to nearly pass 1 billion. Anyway didn't the trailer broke the record for the most amount of trailer views in 24 hours right?
So therefore I wouldn't be surprised if this actually reaches 1 billion.
Beside Beauty And The Beast is like one of the most beloved Disney properties.
PS. Good luck remaking Lion King Disney....
4. Justice League (2017)
Tous publics | 120 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.
Votes: 175,219 | Gross: $227.71M
Domestic Gross: 399 Million
Overseas Gross: 681 Million
Worldwide Total: 1.080 Million
This would have been much higher on the list if it wasn't for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Martha being so bad wouldn't it huh?
I can actually see this not making 1 billion at all but I put it at 1 billion because it's a Justice League movie.
Anyway I don't know if this will be good or bad yet so we will have to wait and see but right now I can see this failing like Dawn Of Justice.
5. Moi, moche et méchant 3 (2017)
Tous publics | 89 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
Gru meets his long-lost charming, cheerful, and more successful twin brother Dru who wants to team up with him for one last criminal heist.
Votes: 63,618 | Gross: $264.62M
Domestic Gross: 321 Million
Overseas Gross: 714 Million
Worldwide Total: 1.035 Billion
How did Minions become the first the first non Disney animation to cross 1 billion?
Simple answer PEOPLE LOVE THIS FRANCHISE!!!!
I think they're fine animated movies and I don't mind them but they make tons of money. Personally I don't think this will outgross Minions because of marketable the Minions are but definitely the previous Despicable Me films and definitely has a 1 billion shot.
6. Fast & Furious 8 (2017)
Tous publics | 136 min | Action, Crime, Thriller
When a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of terrorism and a betrayal of those closest to him, the crew face trials that will test them as never before.
Votes: 150,377 | Gross: $225.76M
Domestic Gross: 330 Million
Overseas Gross: 684 Million
Worldwide Total: 1.014 Billion
These movies have seemingly gotten better since Fast 5 personally I think Fast 5 in the best.
Furious 7 grossed at 1.5 Billion 8 probably won't reach 7 but still will make 1 billion most likely.
7. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Tous publics | 133 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Peter Parker balances his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens with his superhero alter-ego Spider-Man, and finds himself on the trail of a new menace prowling the skies of New York City.
Votes: 270,088 | Gross: $334.20M
Domestic Gross: 443 Million
Overseas Gross: 502 Million
Worldwide Total: 945 Million
Each Spider-Man Movie has at least grossed more than 700 Million but with this one the Spider-Man in the MCU this may pass any entry in the Spider-Man series as this is practically the version of Spider-Man we all asked for as Spider-Man was perfect in Civil war.
Also the trailer looked epic and the cast looks solid.
If this is like The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man 3 or The Amazing Spider-Man 2 then this will be a huge disappointment.
8. Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)
Tous publics | 154 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Autobots and Decepticons are at war, with humans on the sidelines. Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.
Votes: 87,973 | Gross: $130.17M
Domestic Gross: 290 Million
Overseas Gross: 630 Million
Worldwide Total: 920 Million
I don't want to stay too long on this one but as a transformers movie it will make bank no matter what with a somewhat decent trailer I still think it will fall into the category of bad transformers movies. May not as bad as Age Of Extinction or Revenge Of The Fallen but still going to be either Bad like 2 and 4 or OK like 1 and 3.
9. Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
PG-13 | 130 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
Votes: 198,486 | Gross: $313.45M
Domestic Gross: 220 Million
Overseas Gross: 630 Million
Worldwide Total: 850 Million
The Thor movies are the weaker point of the MCU and remember how I said that most marvel sequels reach 1 billion well this one may not as the Thor Movies aren't exactly beloved by everyone.
Plus completion for this movie looks kinda rough with Justice League opening not long after this.
10. Coco (I) (2017)
PG | 105 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family's ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.
Votes: 69,261 | Gross: $200.86M
Domestic Gross: 354 Million
Overseas Gross: 436 Million
Worldwide Total: 790 Million
This may bomb like The Good Dinosaur due to release date. But if you notice Pixar is releasing 2 movies in 2017 Cars 3 and Coco and it looks as if Coco may be the big Pixar movie of 2017 but we'll get to Cars 3 later.
11. La planète des singes: Suprématie (2017)
Tous publics | 140 min | Action, Adventure, Drama
After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind.
Votes: 150,575 | Gross: $146.88M
Domestic Gross: 202 Million
Overseas Gross: 536 Million
Worldwide Total: 738 Million
Holy *beep* dat trailer looked intense more hyped for this movie than I was before even though I really enjoyed Rise and Dawn.
This might turn out to be the rare case in the trilogy where the third movie is the best.
Definitely going to well at the box office.
12. Wonder Woman (2017)
Tous publics | 141 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, Diana, an Amazonian warrior in training, leaves home to fight a war, discovering her full powers and true destiny.
Votes: 364,502 | Gross: $412.56M
Domestic Gross: 290 Million
Overseas Gross: 428 Million
Worldwide Total: 718 Million
Good trailer but going to be bad is a common thing for DCEU Movies I mean look at Dawn Of Justice and I haven't seen Suicide Squad yet.
If is turns out bad than this could have a chance of being a bomb.
I don't really know what to expect from this though.
13. Lego Batman, le film (2017)
PG | 104 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
A cooler-than-ever Bruce Wayne must deal with the usual suspects as they plan to rule Gotham City, while discovering that he has accidentally adopted a teenage orphan who wishes to become his sidekick.
Votes: 92,361 | Gross: $175.75M
Domestic Gross: 250 Million
Overseas Gross: 410 Million
Worldwide Total: 660 Million
A lot of people of course liked The Lego Movie and this is a Lego version of Batman so this has lots of potential to be a Worldwide hit plus it has very little competition well ok its going to be released the same day as John Wick: Chapter 2 and Fifty Shades Darker so yeah some competition for this one but still the other two movies I mentioned aren't on this list yet are they?
14. Cars 3 (2017)
G | 102 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Lightning McQueen sets out to prove to a new generation of racers that he's still the best race car in the world.
Votes: 36,757 | Gross: $152.90M
Domestic Gross: 260 Million
Overseas Gross: 393 Million
Worldwide Total: 653 Million
Whoa that trailer was dark for a Pixar movie. I feel like this one might make up for Cars 2 and become like the best Cars movie but I think that the first Cars is sort of underrated I wouldn't put it on a top 10 best Pixar list but I think it deserves a bit more credit than it normally gets as for Cars 2 um yeah definitely the worst Pixar movie out there.
The trailer got me way hyped than I was before and hopefully this won't disappoint.
Tous publics | 129 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Captain Jack Sparrow searches for the trident of Poseidon while being pursued by an undead sea captain and his crew.
Votes: 175,540 | Gross: $172.56M
Domestic Gross: 180 Million
Overseas Gross: 452 Million
Worldwide Total: 632 Million
I can see this performing a bit of an Ice Age: Collision Course you know where the previous films kept making more money despite the actual movie itself getting worse and worse but then the fifth film fails and just kills the franchise.
Despite a somewhat decent trailer this is my guess for Pirates 5.
16. Kong: Skull Island (2017)
Tous publics | 118 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
A team of scientists explore an uncharted island in the Pacific, venturing into the domain of the mighty Kong, and must fight to escape a primal Eden.
Votes: 188,112 | Gross: $168.05M
Domestic Gross: 204 Million
Overseas Gross: 376 Million
Worldwide Total: 580 Million
I don't know what to say the trailer looks good so far, the cast seems pretty solid and I can see this performing decently like Godzilla.
Beside a lot of people like the King Kong franchise so this is possibly going to be a follow up of that.
17. Kingsman: Le cercle d'or (2017)
R | 141 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman's journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.
Votes: 143,430 | Gross: $100.23M
Domestic Gross: 109 Million
Overseas Gross: 446 Million
Worldwide Total: 555 Million
The first Kingsman was a surprise hit from last year so I'd expect the sequel to be a bit decently better then the predecessor.
So this should do fine.
18. Logan (2017)
Tous publics | 137 min | Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Votes: 438,948 | Gross: $226.28M
Domestic Gross: 225 Million
Overseas Gross: 325 Million
Worldwide Total: 550 Million
As this is going to be R Rated this could very fall behind the previous X-Men movies but because of Deadpool this could make more than 500 million as an R Rated Superhero movie.
19. Ferdinand (2017)
PG | 108 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
After Ferdinand, a bull with a big heart, is mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure.
Votes: 6,974 | Gross: $79.26M
Domestic Gross: 120 Million
Overseas Gross: 385 Million
Worldwide Total: 505 Million
Instead of making another stupid cash grabbing Ice Age sequel Blue Sky Animation is deciding to make another adaptation and this has high hopes behind it.
I'm not sure if 505 Million is right for this movie I mean it does come out around Episode 8s release so it could fall flat like how The Peanuts Movie came out around The Force Awakens release.
20. Alien: Covenant (2017)
12 | 122 min | Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller
The crew of a colony ship, bound for a remote planet, discover an uncharted paradise with a threat beyond their imagination, and must attempt a harrowing escape.
Votes: 183,135 | Gross: $74.26M
Domestic Gross: 160 Million
Overseas Gross: 310 Million
Worldwide Total: 470 Million
Nothing to say just another Alien entry to the series maybe it'll bomb maybe it will do well who knows.
21. Les Schtroumpfs et le village perdu (2017)
Tous publics | 90 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her friends Brainy, Clumsy, and Hefty on an exciting race through the Forbidden Forest, leading to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history.
Votes: 11,880 | Gross: $45.02M
Domestic Gross: 101 Million
Overseas Gross: 343 Million
Worldwide Total: 444 Million
Being uncomfortably close to being released to Boss Baby and Fast 8 this could end up with some mixed results but hopefully it wont be a disaster like the other Smurfs movies that Sony made.
22. Cinquante nuances plus sombres (2017)
12 | 118 min | Drama, Romance

Oh god I don't want to.. oh *beep* I don't want to talk about this one oh dear *beep* Just kidding I could see this performing abit less than the first one as these are just Twilight Fan fics.

Not sure how this one will perform I could see this turning out like TMNT 2014 around 400-500 Worldwide

Two overly imaginative pranksters named George and Harold hypnotize their principal into thinking he's a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.
