Meanwhile, a few of our favorites will return in both ensemble and solo projects, like Hugh Jackman's Wolverine standalone, Logan, on March 3, and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman on June 2. Gadot will also return alongside Ben Affleck's Batman, Henry Cavill's Superman, Amy Adams' Lois Lane, and Jason Momoa's Aquaman in the highly anticipated Justice League, hitting theaters on Nov. 17.
Elizabeth Banks and Bryan Cranston are channeling their villainous sides, as Rita Repulsa and Zordon respectively, for the upcoming Power Rangers reboot, out March 24.
As it turns out, you don't need to wear a cape to anchor a big-budget studio project! Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford are teaming up for Blade Runner 2049 (in theaters Oct. 6), while Brie Larson and Tom Hiddleston will take on King Kong in the upcoming Kong: Skull Island (March 10).
Pixar is offering a few noteworthy films next year, including Cars 3 (June 16) and Coco, inspired by the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos. Meanwhile, Disney is delivering its live-action Beauty and the Beast reboot, starring Harry Potter'sEmma Watson and Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens as the titular characters. The Bill Condon-directed musical is out March 17.
Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson are hitting the beach in those iconic red swimsuits for the over-the-top Baywatch reboot, which also finds David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson returning for epic cameos. The Seth Gordon-directed project hits theaters on May 19 -- not long before Memorial Day weekend. Star Wars gets its own category here, because duh. Star Wars Episode VIII picks up right where we left off on The Force Awakens with Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Luke (Mark Hamill) and Leia (Carrie Fisher), on Dec. 15, 2017. In the heartbreaking wake of Fisher's Dec. 27 death, ET has confirmed that the actress already completed filming on the highly anticipated project. (Note: ET's 2017 Predictions Facebook Live conversation, embedded here, was filmed prior to Fisher's death.)
