Some of the best movies come out during the fall, and 2018 is no exception. From horror to Disney, this fall’s cinema line-up is going to have people of all ages racing to the movie theaters. Check out some of the most-anticipated movies of fall here:

1. The Nun

Summary: When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in The Conjuring 2, as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned

-Came out September 7th

My Opinion:

If you have seen The Conjuring 2, you have to see The Nun. The Nun was an added story to The Conjuring 2 that we never really got to delve into. Now we do, and I can’t wait. I am going to see it Friday, so if you hear someone saying “Don’t turn around you stupid girl,” “I can’t do this,” or “Jesus help me,” then it is probably me. UPDATE: My friend Taylor was the one screaming the whole time, not me.

2.  A Simple Favor

Summary:  A SIMPLE FAVOR, a stylish post-modern film noir directed by Paul Feig, centers around Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), a mommy blogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily’s (Blake Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town. Stephanie is joined by Emily’s husband Sean (Henry Golding) in this thriller filled with twists and betrayals, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge.

My opinion:

Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively! First off, Anna Kendrick is from the Pitch Perfect franchise, so I already like the sound of A Simple Favor. Next, Blake Lively–everyone knows and loves Blake Lively from Gossip Girl. With these two as the stars, I am hoping for a little comedy in what seems like a crazy situation.  

3. Night School

Summary: The comedy from director Malcolm D. Lee follows a group of misfits who are forced to attend adult classes in the long shot chance they’ll pass the GED exam.

My opinion:

I love Kevin Hart. Anything and everything he is in makes me die of laughter or cringe so much that I end up dying in laughter. The trailers look amazing, and I can’t wait to see Tiffany Haddish wail on Kevin in the ring.

4. Smallfoot

Summary: An animated adventure for all ages with original music and an all-star cast, Smallfoot turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist – a human. News of this Smallfoot throws the simple Yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village. Smallfoot is an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.

My opinion:

Time to add a little child-ness to this list of movie must sees. Smallfoot has an all-star cast including Channing Tatum, Zendaya, James Corden, Lebron James, Gina Rodriguez, and so many more. With all these loved actors, I am thinking this movie will be a good one.

5. Where Hands Touch

Summary: Coming of age story set in the most brutal of times: Germany, 1944. Leyna (Amandla Stenberg), the 15-year old daughter of a white German mother (Abbie Cornish) and a black African father, meets Lutz (George MacKay), a compassionate member of the Hitler Youth whose father (Christopher Eccleston) is a prominent Nazi soldier, and they form an unlikely connection in this quickly changing world. As Leyna’s mother strives to protect her from the horrors that she could face as a mixed-race German citizen, Leyna is forced to forge her own path as the war goes on and the Nazi’s increase their atrocities over the Jews and all dissidents. Can she find an ally in Lutz, himself battling a fate laid out before him that he is hesitant to embrace?

My opinion:

Although it has the lowest want-to-see-percentage, Where Hands Touch has me intrigued. I already know this movie will make me mad because of everything going on in that time period, and I bet there is some type of heartbreak along the lines between Leyna and Lutz that will make me scream out my frustration in the movie theater. Besides my imminent frustration, some of the most frustrating movies are the best because you get to feel with the characters.

I hope you enjoy these movies! Let me know what you thought of them in the comments below.
