30 Sci-Fi Movies We Look Forward To Seeing In 2017!

-

2016 was not a fruitful year for Sci-fi fans. We didn't get to see many exciting Sci-fi masterpieces other than Arrival, Rogue One, Civil War. Through challenging sci-fi TV series such as Westworld and Black Mirror, we managed to tame our hunger.

However, the case will be different for 2017. 2017 seems like it will be a great year for those who enjoy science fiction movies. 🙏

Gather around sci-fi freaks! This list is for you!
