For most, it’s the season of rain and cold symptoms, which is the perfect time to watch movies! That logic works, right!? Let’s just say it does. Plus, the blockbuster season has passed, so it’s time for all the award thirsty releases! In other words, here are my top 5 picks from the upcoming fall movies.
This list includes movies released from September to November.
Suspiria, A Private War, Widows, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
COLETTE / Sept. 21st
This period drama, starring Keira Knightley, might not end up in everyone’s list, but it is in mine. Partly because I’ve never been disappointed in Knightley in her period films (I’ve seen most of them), and the theme in this one is current and interesting. Basically, it’s all about gender roles and norms in 1893, and based on the trailer, the film translates well into our present time.
A STAR IS BORN / Oct. 5th
No surprise here because I think most of us are waiting impatiently for this one to arrive. Starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, A Star is Born also marks the directorial debut for Cooper. And the buzz around it has been so good! At this point, I’m fairly certain that it might be THE music-movie of this year.
BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE / Oct. 12th
Again, there is no surprise here either, because it’s another highly anticipated movie for many. With a great cast, with an interesting concept, and exciting cinematography, Bad Times at the El Royale could be one hell of a ride! If not, well, then there’s at least Chris Hemsworth to offer us ladies some eye candy.
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY / Nov. 2nd
Not going to lie, I didn’t really listened to Queen that much growing up. Of course I knew the songs, and the band, and the tragic story of its lead singer Freddie Mercury, but that’s given for us 90’s kids. That being said, for three weeks now, I’ve been binge listening to Queen non-stop! And it has gotten me into this thrilling mindset where I want to see this movie right now! But, with expectations running high, I just hope it doesn’t fall flat under pressure.
BOY ERASED / Nov. 2nd
I just realised there are three biographical movies in this list, so I guess that’s the trend for this fall. Boy Erased brings us a story of an outed son of a Baptist preacher, who is forced to go to a gay conversion camp. Keep in mind, this happened in 2004! Since it’s written and directed by Joel Edgerton, and the boy in question is played by Lucas Hedges, I think it has huge potential to wow us all. Especially since the subject matter is very important, and well, since Hedges is a wonderful young actor!
Let me know if you are looking forward for any of these films? And which movie should also be on my list of most anticipated?3
