Warner Bros. has now set Christopher Nolan's untitled new film for a July 21, 2017 release date. That's around the same time that Nolan released The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, so I think that it's obvious that this will be another big project. It's hitting theaters on the same day as a new Fox animated flick, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and Pitch Perfect 3, one week after the latest Planet of the Apes flick, and one week before Sony's Spider-Man reboot. An incredibly crowded frame and if Warner Bros. is managing to fit this film in there, they must think that it's something special. There is absolutely no other information on the top-secret project, and with a release date that far out, I think that it's safe to say that we won't hear anything about the film for a while. The "Mystery Box" style of marketing can frustrate me sometimes, but nobody handles it better than Nolan and I can't wait to hear more about his next project. But without even hearing a title or a synopsis, this film has shot up to become one of my most anticipated for 2017. And man, what a year that's shaping up to be. New films from Nolan and Edgar Wright, as well as Star Wars: Episode VIII, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Spielberg's Ready Player One. I'm very pumped to see the possibilities that 2017 holds.
