The pain and toil of 2016 is now in the rear-view window, and while we're only a few hours and days into 2017, you can't help but look further down the line to the weeks and months ahead, especially when it comes to what will populate theaters. While it's hard to know which films are actually going to excel critically, we can make an educated guess about which ones will make the most money.

Studios have cottoned on to a successful formula in recent years, and, as has become a custom, there are several blockbusters and sequels on the way. Plenty of them will go on to make an awful lot of money over the next 12 months. So what better way to celebrate cinematic capitalism at its best than to try and guess the 10 films will become the highest grossing in 2017? That's what I've done, and here are my selections.

The Fate Of The Furious

10. The Fate of the Furious

It's going to be a big task for The Fate Of The Furious, the eighth installment to the Fast & Furious franchise, to top the amount made by Furious 7. Back in 2015, Furious 7 became an event picture, with fans eager to check out how the franchise would commemorate Paul Walker and say goodbye to his character Brian O'Conner. Furious 7 went on to gross $1.516 billion, becoming the sixth highest-grossing film of all time.

It's unlikely that The Fate Of The Furious will come close to this total, but it is still going to do awfully well. To increase the spectacle, fun and allure, the franchise has added Scott Eastwood, Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren to the film. But it was The Fate Of The Furious' trailer, which showed that Vin Diesel will be pitted against the rest of his crew having seemingly joined Charlize Theron, that immediately amped up the hype. We'll get to see if it can match this when it's released on April 14.
