Empire have released their list of the TOP 10 FILMS of 2017...

Christmas is the perfect time for doing all the things you've been putting off the rest of the year, and if you've not made it to the cinema much, that might include watching some of the year's biggest blockbusters.

If that's the case, we have some good news, as film experts Empire, have just released their list of the best films of 2017.

WATCH: The terrifying trailer for Empire's number 1 film, Get Out

Commenting on the list, Empire’s editor-in-chief Terri White said: “A great deal of shouting, gesticulating and hair-pulling went into Empire’s end of year list.

"2017 was simply a remarkable year for film - it was particularly notable for its recognition of diversity, with several films that explored the LGBT and African-American experience being critical and commercial hits.

"Sleeper horror Get Out - the debut feature from filmmaker Jordan Peele is our worthy number one, resonating with audiences as one of the most original films to hit cinemas in years.”
