Top Nine Movies You’ll Want to See This Fall
We recently heard about a local movie theater receiving some renovations in time for the holiday season. Now let’s take a look at some movies you may be able to catch there later this year. Here are the top nine most intriguing films that I cannot wait to see from the months of September, October, and November.
It (September 8th)
When the first trailer for It found its way online earlier this year, the internet collectively erupted, launching the movie to the top trend on social media networks. The video itself set a world record for the most viewed piece of advertising within a 24 hour period. The hotly-anticipated adaptation of Stephen King’s remarkable horror novel has received an extraordinary amount of praise from those lucky enough to see the film early. Those critics have praised director Andy Muschietti’s brave take on childhood-focused story as well as Bill Skarsgard’s revolutionary portrayal of Pennywise the clown. It is expected to break numerous box office records when releases September 8th. It is easily one of the most anticipated fall movies.
Mother! (September 15th)
Fall movies are always horror-heavy, so here’s another one I’m looking forward to.
I’m not sure Darren Aronofsky’s Mother! will do nearly as well at the box office as It, but it could very well become a sleeper hit both financially and critically. Aronofsky has previously delivered films like Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream, and The Wrestler. Mother! has a great lead cast, including Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem and also features Michelle Pfeiffer, Domhnall Gleeson, and Kristen Wiig.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle (September 22nd)
The original Kingsman came out in February 2015 and was one of the biggest R-rated hits of all time. The best way to describe it is a hardcore parody of the James Bond films. The sequel looks like a promising continuation. The advertising has shown off a perfect blend between raunchy comedy and dazzling action. Also, the cast is loaded. Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Mark Strong, Colin Firth, and Taron Egerton headline.
American Made (September 29th)
American Made serves as a slight deviation for movie star Tom Cruise into a more serious and dramatic role. The film depicts the real life story of how Barry Seal, a CIA pilot, entered the world of drug trafficking and changed the industry forever. It’s an interesting decision by Cruise, as some of the film’s undertones insinuations are bound to cause some controversy. Directed by the solid Doug Liman, the movie also stars Domhnall Gleeson.
Blade Runner 2049 (October 6th)
The original 1982 cult classic is revered by hardcore film fans across the globe, and now they’ll get a chance to revisit Ridley Scott’s unique world once again. 2049 returns Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard and brings in a group of new performers led by Ryan Gosling. Not much is known about the plot of the film so far, but the talent around the production is enough to get me excited. Director Denis Villeneuve, who also delivered excellent pictures like Sicario, Arrival, and Prisoners, is one of Hollywood’s biggest up and coming talents. Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, and Jared Leto also star. Blade Runner 2049 has a chance to stand out all of this year’s fall movies.
Thor: Ragnarok (November 3rd)
It’s not the best title Hollywood has ever come up with, but the third Thor-centric film to grace the screen is still exciting many. Early marketing has portrayed this movie is a very fun and wild adventure. For those not yet aware, Thor: Ragnarok pairs Thor and Hulk together as they traverse the nine realms. Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo has previously described it as a buddy cop movie. The film is directed by New Zealand-born actor/storyteller Taika Waititi, who was behind the critically revered films What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, and Idris Elbra return to the franchise, while Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, and Karl Urban enter as new villains.
Daddy’s Home 2 (November 10th)
Personally, I find the original Daddy’s Home to be criminally underrated by just about everyone. As Brian Pate would say, “Daddy’s Home is the type of dumb movie that you can just sit back, take in, and have fun with it.” Anytime Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg appear on screen together, viewers should expect some good fun. Based off the trailers for the Holiday-set sequel, fans can expect yet another successful joint outing by the two stars. Daddy’s Home 2 introduces Mel Gibson and the fantastic John Lithgow as the two stars’ own fathers.
Coco (November 22nd)
After churning out two highly successful films (with a mediocre Dinosaur tale in between) in Inside Out and Finding Dory, Pixar Studios is set to release their most daring effort to date this November. Coco is Pixar’s dramatic take on the Dia de los Muertos celebration. The adventure centers around the young aspiring musician Miguel as he stumbles across the so-called “Land of the Dead”. The majority of the characters are walking skeletons, so it’ll be interesting to see how kids and some parents react. Personally, I find the premise very intriguing and I’m looking forward to seeing which direction they take it in.
Darkest Hour (November 22nd)
The last movie on our list might also end up being the best. No other film has been greeted with such fervor at the year’s biggest film festivals than Darkest Hour. The biographical drama follows Winston Churchill in the time leading up to becoming Prime Minister through the early and most vital days of his tenure. The challenge of becoming Churchill has been taken on by Gary Oldman. The performer’s appearance was masterfully transformed by the production’s makeup department. Critics who have already seen the picture have thoroughly praised Oldman’s work on this film, naming the British thespian the easy frontrunner for Best Actor at the next Academy Awards. Darkest Hour will be out just in time for families to enjoy it over Thanksgiving.
