There will be many movies released this fall. Here are the ones I’m most excited to see.
IT Chapter Two — in theaters September 6
I’m a huge fan of all things Stephen King. I first read IT when I was 12 or 13 years old and it scarred me for life in the most wonderful way. I loved what Andy Muschietti did with the first part and I’m eagerly anticipating Chapter Two.
Joker — in theaters October 4
When the first trailer dropped back in April, I was floored. Joaquin Phoenix will be nominated for and probably win a few of those fancy-pants film awards. I’m all for comic book movies with depth and character development (Watchmen, for example), so I’m very much looking forward to this one.
The Lighthouse — in theaters October 18
Robert Eggers directed The Witch, one of the greatest horror films of the century (so far). And A24 hasn’t had many misses, with movies like Green Room and Hereditary under their belt. Check out the cast, too. This’ll be a good one.
Doctor Sleep — in theaters November 8
Remember what I said about Stephen King? I’m on board for all of it. Doctor Sleep tells the story of a grown-up Danny Torrance–you remember him from The Shining, right?–and it’s a scary one.
A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood — in theaters Thanksgiving
It’s Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers. Nuf ced.
Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker — in theaters December 20
It’s Star Wars. Nuf ced.
