10 Wide Releases in 2017 That Exceeded Expectations

While wide releases like Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Dunkirk, Baby Driver, John Wick: Chapter 2, and Logan Lucky either met or fulfilled expectations this year, we had to dig deep for the studio films that caught us pleasantly off-guard. While much of our year-end coverage will be focusing on the overlooked gems, today we’re highlighting the few major releases that left us surprised.

Note that the below ten features are strictly films that received a wide release on their opening weekend and not ones that eventually expanded with a roll-out. Some, for various reasons, arrived with virtually little-to-no anticipation around these parts, while others wildly exceeded our standard expectations, and a few managed to be among our favorites of the year.

Check out our selections below and let us know what surprised you most in 2017.

Girls Trip”: Michele K. Short/Universal Pictures

The big screen had a lot to offer in 2017: Amazonian warriors kicking ass (and breaking box office records), tennis stars smashing misogyny, a wildly inventive and Nsfw use of a grapefruit, and so much more. We’ve collected some of our favorite films by and about women this year, and they include biopics about athletes, war movies, and a game-changing super hero film.
