2017 20th Century Fox Preview

20th Century Fox is riding high after a massive 2016 that featured their breakout hit DEADPOOL. While not receiving quite the critical acclaim of that film, Fox still managed to make money on X-MEN: APOCALYPSE as well as the long awaited sequel INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE. Fox also banked on their collaboration with DreamWorks Animation with hits TROLLS and KUNG FU PANDA 3. All of this accounted for $1.46 billion at the box office which they hope to top in 2017 with new animation, new Wolverine, a new Alien film, and lots of comedies.
