Fall is coming and that means the fall movie season is at our doorstep and I have to say, the upcoming films set to arrive at the back half of 2019 look amazing. So, on that note, here’s a lineup of movies you may want to set your calendar date for.
IT: Chapter Two
Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.
Like horror? Interested in the IT franchise? Well, not only does IT: Chapter Two look wet-your-pant scary but it actually looks pretty good. This will be one to watch.
Arrives September 6 (in IMAX.)
A boy in New York is taken in by a wealthy Upper East Side family after his mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Based on the Pulitzer-winning novel, The Goldfinch, this movie seems to be targeting the Oscars. With great actors like Golden-Globe nominated actor Ansel Elgort and Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman, The Goldfinch not only looks cinematographically intriguing but emotionally complex and riveting as well.
Keep your eyes on this film during Oscar season.
Arrives September 13.
A mob hitman recalls his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa.
Martin Scorsese, Al Pacino, Robert de Niro, forget about it.
Arrives September 27 on Netflix and Select Theaters.
A stage director and his actor wife struggle through a grueling, coast-to-coast divorce that pushes them to their personal and creative extremes.
Adam Driver and Scarlet Johansson are trying to get Oscar nominations with their performance in this beautifully directed, destined-to-get-to-many-people’s-emotions film. Hey, I’ll watch it. (Anything with Adam Driver, who is SUCH a great actor, by the way, intrigues me.)
Arrives this September to Netflix and Select Theaters.
Legendary performer Judy Garland arrives in London in the winter of 1968 to perform a series of sold-out concerts.
At first, when I heard they were doing a movie about Judy Garland I wasn’t interested but after seeing this trailer I’m definitely intrigued.
While a second trailer for Joker has not arrived I don’t even think it matters because this trailer conveyed enough. This movie is going to be dark. Very, very dark. With Joaquin Phoenix putting a whole new spin on this super creepy yet iconic villain Joker is going to be the delight of October.
Arrives October 4 (in IMAX.)
The extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes, whose courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history.
Focus Features has made some incredible movies lately destined to be considered for Best Picture and this film is one of them. Harriet Tubman, a real-life superhero, is finally getting her chance to shine on the big screen and I’m hoping this movie turns out to be as good as it looks.
Arrives November 1.
Terminator: Dark Fate
With James Cameron returning to produce, Linda Hamilton returning to grace another Terminator movie with her badassery (excuse my language,) and a female Terminator heroine to save the day, this film is destined to be off the chain.
Plus, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back.
Arrives November 1 (in IMAX.)
Ford v. Ferrari
American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference, the laws of physics and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford and challenge Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.
Two Oscar-winning actors? Check. Fast cars? Check. What could go wrong? I don’t think much. Put this on your calendar. I think you’re going to like it.
Arrives November 15.
Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven leave Arendelle to travel to an ancient, autumn-bound forest of an enchanted land. They set out to find the origin of Elsa’s powers in order to save their kingdom.
Frozen became a global phenomenon six years ago. Can its sequel do the same?
Arrives November 22.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
The surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga.
If you’re one of the few people on Earth who has not seen this teaser trailer yet then, you’re welcome. (I’ve seen it over fifteen times.)
Arrives December 20 (in IMAX.)
A few women decide to take on Fox News boss Roger Ailes and the toxic male culture he presided over at the network.
Just dropping its first official teaser today, the movie that’ll have everyone talking this Christmas season (or at least, whoever’s not talking about Star Wars) is Bombshell. In the #MeToo era, films like this are so important, as they reveal blatantly how uncomfortable it can be to be a woman in the workplace. Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, and Margot Robbie are destined to get Oscar buzz for their roles in this movie.
I mean, I could feel the emotion rolling off of them in the teaser. Wow.
Arrives December 20.
I hope this list excited you about the movies we can look forward to in the coming months. I know I’m excited! 😁
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
