Rich Cline talks us through some of the most anticipated movies for release in 2017.
As always, there are far too many sequels, spin-offs, remakes and reboots clogging the cinemas, but hopefully they'll be better than 2016's lacklustre batch. (Release dates are subject to change.)
Star Wars: Episode Viii - Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill continue the saga (Dec). More sci-fi sequels worth waiting for: the gang reteams for more space antics in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (May), Michael Fassbender returns for Alien: Covenant (May), and Harrison Ford is back for Blade Runner 2049 (Oct).

Narrated by Daisy Ridley (The Force Awakens), this documentary is one of the most gripping adventure stories put on film this year, as cameras follow a group of remarkable real people. For his directing debut, British filmmaker Otto Bell takes the audience with him to a whole new world on the Mongolian steppe and introduces us to a young woman who we will never forget. The film is visually stunning, and tells a story that carries a proper emotional kick.
It centres on Aisholpan, a confident 13-year-old who simply doesn't buy into her culture's patriarchy. According to tradition, only males can hunt with eagles, but she has decided to be the next in her family's long line of champion hunters. Her father Nirgaiv recognises in her both the needed skill and tenacity, so he begins to train her. The first task is to capture her own eaglet, accomplished by scaling a precarious cliff and grabbing a baby from a nest as its angry mother circles above. Then Aisholpan must raise it herself, so that it learns to respond to her call. Her eaglet is so impressive that she enters the annual Eagle Hunter Festival competition as the first-ever female huntress and the youngest competitor ever. And the elders don't like this at all.
The film is edited with plenty of witty energy, as the elders continually talk about the things women can't do, while Aisholpan proves them wrong at every step. But the most impressive thing about this film is the way Bell and his crew capture everything on-camera, including the jaw-dropping sequence in which Aisholpan captures her eaglet. The competition is heart-pounding and emotional. And the final challenge for Aisholpan is to actually travel into the snowy wilderness and use her eagle to hunt down a fox. Only a few of these scenes seem somewhat re-staged for the cameras, but that doesn't make them any less exciting or moving.

The world occasionally spills forth a pioneer of change, someone out to change the course of history for the better. It's been a long-standing tradition of the Altai Mountains' wanderers in Mongolia to hunt with Golden Eagles, a practice passed from father to son over generations. But one girl changed all that when she took on the custom despite her gender, with a determination to become an expert in the field of eagle hunting. Aisholpan Nurgaiv is like any other 13-year-old girl in that she enjoys spending time with her friends and painting her nails, but she has a kind of strength and courage that most people can only dream of having.

Daisy Ridley as Rey
Daisy Ridley is envious of Felicity Jones, who is set to go on a 'Star Wars' tour in the future.
The 24-year-old actress has admitted she wants to be in Felicity's shoes and be on the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' press tour, and although Daisy has admitted '''jealous' is the wrong word'' she does feel a little bit of the green-eyed monster creeping in that Felicity will be on the road for 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'.
Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, the brunette beauty - who played Rey in the movie - said: ''It was weird, I've talked so much retrospectively about what was going on [in the lead-up to 'Force Awakens']. It was so odd to be reliving it. And she gets to go talk about this film that she's part of in all these amazing places.

Star Wars heroine Daisy Ridley has temporarily quit Instagram after being on the receiving end of a backlash regarding comments on gun violence.

The 24 year old star wrote to her 2.3 million followers: “As I sat in the audience yesterday tears were streaming down my face at the tribute to those that have been lost to gun violence.
