Site Update: Anthony Mackie A Year in Review

With 2017 coming to an end and hoping to make it an annual thing following the 2016 recap, I thought it would be great to do a summary of this last year in regard to Anthony’s career.

2017 was a relaxed year compared to 2016 as Anthony spent most of 2017 filming his upcoming projects. The year kicked off with Anthony making some apperances around LA and joining the NBA All celebrity game.

In April, the surprise of all surprises happened with Anthony being announced as the headlining guest for the Middle East Film & Comic Con in Dubai, UAE. It was honestly the highlight of the year for me.

In April also, Anthony was announced as one of the juror in the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival in New York so he was doing the round for a couple of days around the festival.

June/July came and brought Golfer Anthony into the picture with attending the IRIE’s Annual Charity Weekend before heading back to Anaheim to participate in D23 Expo activities with his Marvel co-stars.

August came and featured Anthony going on his major 2017 project Detroit, a Fact-based drama set during the 1967 Detroit riots in which a group of rogue police officers respond to a complaint with retribution rather than justice on their minds directed by Kathryn Bigelow. Anthony starred as Greene, along side John Boyega, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jason Mitchell, John Krasinski. The movie premiered in Detroit and then had events in Los Angeles, New York & Australia.

New projects wise, Anthony have signed to star in 2 upcoming movies, The Hate U Give and The Blue Mauritius. Also, the long awaited Infinity War trailer was released earlier this month.

And I think that’s about it? It’s been a very slow year compared to 2016, but next year we have a Marvel press tour and those are always exhausting fun to cover and brings us a lot of new pictures/features with Anthony.

I’d like to thank everyone for visiting, for the comments and for the amazing feedback about the site this past year. We’d also like to wish Anthony (and you guys) a happy new year, may 2018 brings you and your families joy and happiness.
