With 2016 being the controversial and arguably discouraging year that it was–the vicious political campaigns, famous icons dying off left and right (R.I.P Prince, Muhammad Ali, Carrie Fisher, etc.), and for some the election of a new, unprecedented president–many are very excited to take advantage of the fresh start that is 2017. Many of us eagerly made New Year’s resolutions, set personal goals, and vowed to become better people with a sense of determination to make this year better and more productive than the last.
In the spirit of making the world a better place this year and keeping the determined momentum alive, here are just a couple things to look forward to in 2017!

1. New films! There are a slew of new, exciting movies set to release in 2017. For action lovers, World War Z 2 is set to release in June. For horror lovers, Insidious: Chapter 4 is coming out in October! For comedy lovers, Despicable Me 3 and Pitch Perfect 3 are going to be in theaters starting June and December, respectively!

3. A solar eclipse! On August 21, 2017 you can bear witness to this awe-inspiring natural event. Grab your sunglasses.

5. Drones! Drones are the new delivery boys. Companies like Wal-mart, Amazon, and Google as well as a few popular food chains are beginning to invest in drones to make organize warehouses and make deliveries. We very well may see some of this new technology put to work in 2017!
