Some of the most anticipated films of 2018 are set to hit theaters in the fall. While autumn weather and changing leaves may seem far away right now, it's not too early for film fans to get excited about some of these long-awaited movies. Here are our picks for the best eight movies to check out as summer winds down.
The Predator (September 14)
As the fourth installment in the Predator film series, set to take place between Predator 2 and Predators, you can expect great things from this American science fiction horror film. A young boy, played by Jacob Tremblay, accidetally triggers the Predators to return to Earth, who have genetically modified themselves with DNA from other species to make them the universe’s most dangerous hunters. Earth’s only hope comes from a crew of former soldiers and a science teacher to stop the predators before anyone becomes their prey.
White Boy Rick (September 14)
Get ready for the next great Americam crime drama, starring Richie Merritt and Matthew McConaughey, in this film about Richard Wershe Jr., who in the 1980s became the youngest FBI informant ever at the age of 14. Based on a true story, this film will take you through the drug-trafficing market in Detroit at the time, and just how this young hustler got tangled in a mess with the law.
A Star Is Born (October 5)
This remake of the 1937 classic stars Bradley Cooper as a fading country star who begins an affair with a young protege, played by Stefani Germanotta (better known by her stage name, Lady Gaga). As she becomes a superstar, he must contend with the end of his storied career. This version of the dramatic tale, originally starring Judy Garland and remade in the 70s with Barbra Streisand, will feature performances recorded at the UK Glastonbury Festival.
Venom (October 5)
One of the most anticipated movies this fall is the villain-centric Venom, starring Tom Hardy in the title role. Although little information has been released about the movie featuring Spiderman's foe, we do know that Spidey will not appear in the film. Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate, and Woody Harrelson will also star, and the movie will be directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland). If it is not rated R, it still should be a dark, scary, and mature PG-13--which makes it the perfect fall feature for adult superhero fans.
Bad Times at El Royale (October 12)
Bad Times at El Royale brings you another American crime mystery thriller that’s sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. Starring Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Cailee Spaeny, Lewis Pullman, Nick Offerman, and Chris Hemsworth, the film takes place at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a past as dark as the seven strangers who meet here. Everyone’s got a secret to tell and yearing for a chance to redeem themselves, so don’t miss a minute of the mystery here with us.
Halloween (October 19)
This fall, Jamie Lee Curtis returns to Haddonfield to once again play her most iconic scream queen role as Laurie Strode. Although Rob Zombie rebooted the franchise just a few years ago, fans hope that this new installment will return the slasher classic to its frightening roots. According to early reports, this movie will take place after the events of the original film and will disregard the many sequels. David Gordon Green is set to direct.
Bohemian Rhapsody (November 2)
Fans were bowled over by the first trailer for this Freddie Mercury biopic, starring a transformed Rami Malek as the legendary Queen frontman. The film covers the years after Queen's formation leading up to the band's iconic 1985 performance at Live Aid. Expect ear-shattering performances, meteoric rises, and dramatic falls from this highly anticipated drama, which is produced by Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. Mike Myers will star in an as-yet unannounced role, which is fortuitous since he was responsible for the 90s resurgence of the title song when it was featured in his classic comedy Wayne's World.
The Girl in the Spider's Web (November 9)
The second movie in this popular crime thriller universe is based on the best-selling novels by David Lagercrantz. Computer hacker Lisbeth Salander is portrayed by Claire Foy in this gritty drama that follows Salander as she gets ensnared in a shadowy network of spies, criminals, and other nefarious characters. The first film in the series starred Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, neither of whom are returning for the sequel. Still, fans are anxious to see how Salander's story plays out on the big screen.
