Fall Movie Preview
By Daniel F.
Movie season is still on during the fall. With award season fast approaching, major films are coming out soon. Here are some of the major films coming out during the fall that has garnered some attention.
“The Nun” 9/7
Set in The Conjuring universe, a priest and a novitiate are sent by the Vatican to investigate a nun who took her own life in Romania. While there, they must confront a demonic nun. If you like ghosts stories or movies like The Exorcist, then The Nun should satisfy you. Senior Heath M. said, “The nuns are thought of like witches in the movie which makes it look creepy.”
“The House With a Clock in Its Walls” 9/21
Lewis goes to live with his uncle in an old house with a mysterious ticktock noise. When he wakes up the dead, witches and warlocks appear in town. The movie will be directed by Eli Roth, more known for his gruesome and gory horror films. It will be interesting to see Roth direct a family friendly movie instead of usual films.
Reporter Eddie Brock develops superpowers after an alien parasite latches on to him. For once we’ll get on a film about the villain instead of the hero. “Venom hasn’t had the spotlight in any movie other than the third Spiderman,” said senior Alex B. “He’s a freaky cool villain. I’d definitely go to the movies to see a film about him.” This would be an interesting take on comic book films. This could inspire more films about the origins of villains.
This direct sequel to the 1978 classic follows Laurie Strode’s attempt to fight back against escaped killer Michael Myers. The movie does not acknowledge all of the other Halloween films after the first one and looks to continue the story in a unique way. John Carpenter, the first film’s director, is on board for the soundtrack to the film.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” 11/2
This film follows the rise of Queen, from their formation to their famous performance at Live Aid in 1985. With Mr. Robot star Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, the film will capture the charisma of the frontman and the many famous songs that Queen brought and people remember.
“The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” 11/2
Clara needs a key to unlock a box that contains a priceless gift. However, she goes into a parallel world and must enter the fourth realm to get the key. “It looks intriguing,” said Junior Christina C. “It looks very mystical and it like a Tim Burton film like Alice in Wonderland. It also looks like the Narnia films.”
This remake of the 1977 horror movie follows a woman who attends a dance company with darkness swirling at the center. The film has already garnered buzz for being compared to the films of Stanley Kubrick and featuring a particularly gruesome scene of a woman being telekinetically thrown across a mirrored room. The scene shows bones being twisted and broken as the woman gets turned into a ball.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” 11/16
Newt Scamander must join forces with young Albus Dumbledore to prevent Gellert Grindelwald’s attempts to rule the world with pure-blood wizards. The trailer shows that the Fantastic Beats films could be very much like the Harry Potter films: they get much darker and more violent as they go on.
