Autumn has finally hit. The nights are getting colder which means one thing: CINEMA SEASON!!! Fall is the perfect time to hit the cinema. There isn’t much to do, and it’s pitch black at six o’ clock in the evening. Why not grab the popcorn, take a comfy seat, and enjoy a first class screening!?
There are some upcoming films I cannot wait to see!! The variety of films ranges from comedy to horror, and it’s nice to have an eclectic choice. I tend to stick to Asian and horror movies. There are some films on this list that I never thought I would be interested in, but the trailers took me by surprise!
Here’s my list of films I’m looking forward to this fall!
A Bad Moms Christmas
Release Date: 11/3/2017
Director(s): Jon Lucas, Scott Moore
Actor(s): Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn
So, this is one of those films that I never thought I would want to see, but the film has such heavyweights in it. I assume the script must be good. I haven’t seen the first, but I don’t feel that I need to. The cast includes Susan Sarandon, Wanda Sykes, and my absolute favourite Christine Baranski!! The trailer looks hilarious. I’m more than happy to give this a go!
Kingsman: Golden Circle
Release Date: 9/22/2017
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Actor(s): Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Taron Egerton
Taron Egerton is slowly becoming one of my favourite young actors, and I enjoy his portrayal of Eggsy. I fell in love with the first film, especially the church fight which left my mouth aghast! The idea of bringing in the Statesman is brilliant. I cannot wait for more epic fight scenes, especially those using the lasso!
Release Date: 9/15/2017
Director: Darren Aronofsky
Actor(s): Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer
I think what intrigues me about this film is the fact that I’ve seen all of the trailers and I still don’t have a clue what’s going on. It’s a psychological horror that’s already messing with my brain thanks to three minutes of footage. I’m detecting a Rosemary’s Baby vibe, and maybe the husband is a ghost? I’m not quite sure. This article will be published after its release, so hopefully, by the time you’ve read this I would’ve watched it and enjoyed it.
Release Date: 20/10/2017
Director(s): Julien Maury, Alexandre Bustillo
Actor(s): Stephen Dorff, Lili Taylor, Sam Strike
Prequels are all the rage in horror, and of course, Leatherface would have one. Let’s be honest. Who doesn’t want to know the origin of Leatherface?! I loved the first film of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. One of the best things about the movie is that I don’t have to see the other 8 to enjoy it. Nothing like a slasher to get you into the holiday spirit. The plot seems a little darker than the first film, but hopefully, it’ll hold up to how awesome it looks in the trailers!!
Release Date: /10/13/2017
Director: Martin Campbell
Actor(s): Jackie Chan, Pierce Brosnan
I do love it when comedy actors take a more serious role. They usually give an amazing performance. Steve Carell in Little Miss Sunshine anyone? Jackie Chan looks amazing in this thriller. It has that Taken vibe to it which is exciting. There are also a ton of explosions to keep us entertained!
Release Date: 11/3/2017
Director: Taika Waititi
Actor(s): Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Mark Ruffalo
Thor is nearly here, and I can’t be any more excited. I think what I’m more excited for is the fact that 80% of the film is improvised, which is not surprising since the director is none other than Taika Waititi. He is one of the geniuses behind the movie What We Do in the Shadows. The trailer makes the film look so vibrant and full of life. Recently, Marvel has given us some solid, stellar films, so I’m expected this movie to blow me away!!
The Disaster Artist
Release Date: 12/8/2017
Director: James Franco
Actor(s): James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogan, Alison Brie
The Disaster Artist makes me squirm in my seat. I get so embarrassed when I watch it, but I also can’t look away. I love it enough that I’d be more than happy to sit through The Disaster Artist. Not only does it look funny, but very poignant and sad. James Franco’s impersonation of Tommy Wiseau is on point, and apparently, it’s creating Oscar buzz. Please don’t hold that against me. I read it on Facebook.
The Man Who Invented Christmas
Release Date: 11/22/2017
Director: Bharat Nalluri
Actor(s): Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer
When I saw the title of the film, I didn’t think much of it. Let’s be honest. The title… falls flat. However, once I discovered that the director was the brains behind Nanny McPhee, I was intrigued. The trailer gave me goosebumps. It. Looks. Amazing! It’s all about the creation of Tiny Tim and Mr. Scrooge and how they came to life through the genius mind of Charles Dickins. It looks funny, sweet and heartwarming. I do expect to have tissues at the ready! Out of all the films on the list, this is the one I’m most excited about!!
