I finally finished savoring Entertainment Weekly's Fall Movie Preview issue, and I thought that instead of just writing things down on my calendar to remind me when they come out, I'd also share them here with you. So here are the movies I'm thinking I might want to see in the theater this fall:
The Martian (10-2-15), about Matt Damon being stuck on Mars. I hear the book is awesome, and you know I love me some Matt Damon.
Pan (10-9-15), that Peter Pan movie with Hugh Jackman in a maniacal mustache.
Bridge of Spies (10-16-15), in which Tom Hanks goes behind the iron curtain to um... do lawyer stuff involving hostages. Right now I'm wishing it also involved the United Network Command of Law and Enforcement too, of course, but I'll deal.
Suffragette (10-23-15), about British women fighting for their right to vote. I'm in this one for the cast too: Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep, and Ramola Garai!
(I'd like to see any of those in the theater, but I'd be okay with most of them on DVD. I probably will make the most effort to see The Martian and Pan on the big screen.)
Spectre (11-6-15), the new James Bond movie. What more is there to say?
Trumbo (11-6-15), about Dalton Trumbo, screenwriter of movies like Roman Holiday and Spartacus.
Creed (11-25-15), a Rocky spin-off! That I didn't even know existed until I read this issue of EW!
I Saw the Light (11-27-15), where Tom Hiddleston plays Hank Williams. And does all his own singing.
(I WILL see Spectre in the theater, and probably Creed. The others, we'll see if they're showing around here or not.)
In the Heart of the Sea (12-11-15), based on the true story that inspired Moby-Dick. Chris Hemsworth and tall ships and Ron Howard.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (12-18-15). Enough said.
(I WILL see both of these in the theater, but possibly not until after Christmas, we'll see.)
Are any of these on your radar?
