After a year that felt longer than a marathon screening of the entire Star Wars prequel trilogy, 2016 is finally over. The heartbreak, headaches and downright hilarity of the year we would all like to forget, is now behind us.
Now, fear not! 2017 is here to save the day and it is absolutely packed full of all your favourite costumed crime-fighters. From Wall crawlers, to demigods, to eccentric spies, this year has it all. So, sit back, relax and let your friendly neighbourhood Thn talk you through what 2017 has in store. Check out our Comic Book Movie Preview!
First up is the highly anticipated Lego Movie spin-off, focusing on Will Arnett’s hilariously parodied version of Batman. While the idea was initially met with skepticism, trailers have so far indicated that this could be one of the caped crusaders greatest cinematic outings yet.

Monday January 16th has been deemed Blue Monday.
Blue Monday is what experts would call “the most depressing day of the year”, and it makes sense. It’s freezing cold outside, it’s mid-January when the excitement of the holidays has officially faded, and it’s a Monday.
We at Cineplex want to turn this day around, and instead are giving you the opportunity to make the most depressing day into a great one. Scene is offering a special redemption promotion on January 16th, which will make your Monday anything but blue.
On Blue Monday, Scene members can treat themselves to a movie by redeeming half the amount of points – 500 points for regular movies, 750 points for enhanced experiences and 1,000 for VIP Cinemas. »

The story of a hunky high school senior who discovers an oil-guzzling sea beast (think “Sesame Street” meets the Kraken), and then knots its tentacles around the chassis of his custom jalopy in a perverse attempt to pimp his ride, “Monster Trucks” seems like such an impossibly stupid idea for a movie that it’s easy to forget how it derives from a rather proud history of Hollywood entertainment. After all, there have been any number of studio spectacles about a young boy, or a teenage boy, or — in this case — an obviously grown-ass man doing a hilarious job of pretending to be a teenage boy — whose frustrated small town existence is turned upside down when he befriends a strange and unexpectedly sweet creature that teaches him about growing up or whatever. “Monster Trucks,” however aimless and confused it may be, rolls down a road paved by verified hits like “E.T., »

After a long career in fashion, Ford made his movie debut with 2009’s “A Single Man.” Like its director, “Nocturnal Animals” is sleek and glamorous, but there is a lot going on below the surface.
Adapting the novel by Austin Wright, Ford tapped into his fashion background by using a lot of visuals — even when writing the script — grabbing various images from online. “I make binders for every character and their world. And then before writing a scene, I look at that character, so they’re fresh in my mind.
“Certain images work their way into the script. I found a photo of a person sitting on a toilet on their front porch, talking on the phone and drinking a beer. »

Casey Affleck, the best actor winner at Tuesday night’s New York Film Critics Circle Awards, took the podium with some ammunition; a stack of bad reviews written about previous performances in his career. “Fortunately, he’s not the lead,” read an old clipping. “I would say that’s fair,” the actor chimed in.
Affleck, the star of Kenneth Lonergan’s drama “Manchester by the Sea,” is a frontrunner to win the best actor Oscar, and his stop at the Nyfcc dinner held at Tao Downtown was another momentum-building moment on the campaign trail. Although the Nyfcc doesn’t always overlap with the Oscars, they have singled out previous soon-to-be Academy Awards winners like Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”), Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine”) and Colin Firth (“The King’s Speech”).
Since all the prizes had been announced in advance, the event was a celebratory lap with relaxed speeches and a few jokes »

Welcome to The Top 5, where every week, we list five things for a given topic. These topics can range from "5 Things We Liked About The Power Rangers Teaser Trailer" to "5 Things We Want (Or Don't Want) In Ben Affleck's The Batman."

Instead, they're meant to provide entertaining insight, and to stir a discussion, and give everyone a chance to speak their mind.
If you have a suggestion for a Top 5 piece, send them my way via #TheTop5LRM on Twitter. If I choose your topic, I'll be sure to give you a shoutout!
