Apple reveals top 2017 movies & TV shows in iTunes apps

Apple has announced its annual list of top 2017 movies and TV shows through the Apple TV Movies app and separate TV app.

2017 Most Popular Movies

In the movies category, the 2016 3D computer-animated musical fantasy-adventure film “Moana,” was in 1st place, followed by “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, “Wonder Woman” and “Sing.”

Apple commented:

This year, movie lovers couldn’t get enough of powerful, isolated female protagonists who discover their destinies: “Moana”, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and ”Wonder Woman” were our top-selling films. Family-friendly fare with irresistible soundtrack was also huge, with “Sing”, “Trolls” and “Beauty and the Best” dancing their way into our top 10. Meanwhile, Marvel’s hot stream continued with “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and “Doctor Strange”.

The good news is Apple is slowly upgrading many of the previously-purchased 1080p movies from the iTunes Store to 4K HDR for no additional charge, and new purchases will be priced at the previous 1080p cost.

2017 Most Popular TV Shows

One of the hottest categories on Apple TV is TV shows with “Game of Thrones: Season 7,” in first followed by “The Walking Dead: Season 8,” and “The Big Bang Theory: Season 11.”

Apple editors commented:

2017 is the year that winter finally came—so it’s no surprise that the addictive thrills of “Games of Thrones” landed in the top spot of our TV chart. What did surprise us was the massive showing from irreverent animated comedy “Rick and Morty.” Long-running hits like “The Big Bang Theory” and ”The Walking Dead” continued to reign, but newcomers “This Is Us” and “Big Little Lies” shook things up with their rich ensembles and gripping storylines. “PAW Patrol” was the year’s top-selling kids show, and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” proved that even a masked lip sync can’t ruin the fun.
