Big things in Sci-fi this year

The trailer for Alien Covenant was released this week and it looks pretty amazing and very much in keeping with the franchise. Needless to say I am looking forward to this one very much, being a long time fan of the series.

There is this one and two more films I am pretty pumped for. The first being the long anticipated sequel to Blade Runner. This has been rumoured and speculated on for literally years and is finally coming to fruition. Blade runner has been a highly influential film in my relationship with cinema so I am really hoping that this one lives up to expectation.

Then, the live action interpretation of Ghost in the Shell. The original is in my top ten all time favourite films if only for the city montage with that haunting music. This one looks to be a pretty faithful recreation of the original and again, hopes run high. The disappointment would be gutting if this fails in execution, although the trailer is very promising.

However you look at it, 2017 is shaping up to be a HUGE year for geek sic-fi.
