Top 10 Movies Added to IMDb Watchlists in 2017by IMDb-Editors | last updated - 7 months ago
Which movies made it to the most Watchlists in 2017? Several reboots and remakes, and a few surprise box office hits made the list. Here are the top 10 TV shows users added to their IMDb Watchlists this year.
10. Kingsman: The Golden Circle
The sequel to the 2014's action-comedy Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kingsman: The Golden Circle brought the team stateside and introduced their U.S. super-spy equivalent, Statesman. While it didn't garner the same ratings as its predecessor, it's signature blend of action and tongue-in-cheek humor found a home with audiences and landed at #10 in our movie list of top Watchlist adds.
9. Star Wars: The Last Jedi
The release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi is, perhaps, a bit bittersweet with the first anniversary of the death of Carrie Fisher. However, the presence of so many women in the Star Wars Universe (including Rey, Captain Phasma, Lieutenant Connix, Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo) just goes to show just how influential Princess Leia was during her too-short time in our galaxy.
8. Spider-Man: Homecoming
Spider-Man: Homecoming, another reboot of the Spider-Man movies, hit the ground running with a new Peter Parker, the accomplished dancer-turned-actor Tom Holland. With a sequel already scheduled, and a possible school-year-by-school year format (with Peter Parker as a sophomore in high school in the first film, a junior in high school in the second film, and so on), it looks like there's plenty more Spider-Man to look forward to in the future.
7. Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman took the summer box office by storm. It set a U.S. domestic box office record for female directors, while also more than holding its own against other superhero movies, past and present. Considered the best of the DC Extended Universe, director Patty Jenkins has already confirmed that there will be a Wonder Woman 2, which is set to open in 2019.
6. Blade Runner 2049
Denis Villeneuve's love letter to its predecessor, Blade Runner 2049 hit the theaters in October of this year, and also landed at #6 on the list of top movies added to IMDb Watchlists. The action takes place 30 years after the original Blade Runner. Harrison Ford reprises his role as Agent Rick Deckard with Ryan Gosling as Agent K, the blade runner who carries on the work Deckard did before him. A third film in the series has been teased, but no word on whether or not there’s still more to come.
A reboot of Stephen King's creepy clown story, It scared the pants off the box office competition by taking in a much higher than projected box office take, including the biggest ever September debut, and the largest for opening ever for a horror movie. The young cast got consistently high reviews, as did (at the time) litte-known director Andy Muschietti. They say mid-winter is the perfect time for a scary story, so here's one for your holiday Watchlist.
4. Thor: Ragnarok
Thor: Ragnarok, directed by Taika Waititi, featured some of the more entertaining banter of the superhero genre. Balancing that humor was some state-of-the-art special effects and an all-star cast (including newcomers to the franchise Jeff Goldblum and Cate Blanchett), helping it to the top of IMDb user rankings for movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Logan, the future-looking story in which Wolverine is looking after an aging and addled Professor X, came in at #2. Shortly after the film was released, Patrick Stewart said it would "probably" be his last performance as Professor X, saying that it was so moving, he couldn’t imagine "a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie." He has since suggested that he might reprise the role, given the right circumstances. Never say never, eh, Sir Patrick?
Dunkirk, directed by Christopher Nolan, hit our #1 spot for most 2017 Watchlist adds. The highest grossing World War II film of all time, Dunkirk tells the story of the evacuation of Allied soldiers who were surrounded by the German army near Dunkirk, France in 1940. The cast and crew filmed in the actual location and re-created situations (such as real Spitfires flying over the boats the actors were on) to enhance the feeling of being on the scene. For audiences who saw the film, which was largely shot on IMAX film, in IMAX theaters, the realism was even further enhanced by the surround experience.
