Through the Looking-Glass…Top 200 Most Anticipated Films of 2017: An Introduction

As we were putting together our projections for most anticipated films due in 2017, we noticed there were too many notable titles to be contained within a list of one hundred….so we’ve doubled our projection to include 200 titles to look forward to well over a year from now. These include a mixture of US and foreign titles, as well as a few notable auteur driven studio ventures.

Last year‘s “Through the Looking Glass” showcased a number of items unfortunately stalled or dropped altogether. Peter Strickland moved into some radio projects (though a period piece in San Francisco’s gay underground was hinted at about a year ago), Jennifer Kent went ahead with a title we weren’t expecting as did Antonio Campos, while Ulrich Seidl revealed 2016 will unveil a new documentary rather than his long gestating Herr Grasl. We expect a small percentage of these projects tipped for a possible 2017 birth to undergo some of the same transformations, but until then, these have appeared on our radar. We hope you enjoy filtering through these baubles as much as we did piling them on atop of one another.

Items 11-200 are available via the list below, but we’ll unveil a separate entry for our Top Ten Most Anticipated Films of 2017.
