2017 Razzie Nominations Shortlist Announced!

What a bounty of bad films 2016 gave us and, boy, have the Razzies seized on them for this years 37th annual awards. As you could expect both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad feature heavily. Both Zoolander 2 and Independence Day: Resurgence are nominated in every category bar one, Dirty Grandpa, Assassin’s Creed, Blair Witch, Alice Through The Looking Glass don’t get out unscathed and even My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 makes an appearance.

My gut tells me this is the year of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. My winning predictions in red.
