Fall Movie Preview: The Best of What’s In Theaters This Fall

Get ready BL—Fall movies are here and I’m prepared to talk shop! From White Boy Rick to the reimagining of Robin Hood, fall of 2018 has a movie for everyone.

Early in the month of September, the visual masterpiece Mandy was released in theaters. Based in 1983, the story follows Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) and his wife (Andrea Riseborough) who reside in a cabin in the middle of the woods. The movie takes a turn for the worse as the two main characters are constantly harassed by a cult-like collection of misfits. After Red’s wife is taken from him by the freaks and demons of the night, he realizes just how alone he really is, and is forced to put up the fight of his life. Mandy has landed a spot in my favorite movies of all time, as it presents both vibrant colors and sounds in a unique fashion.

October’s cinematic line-up has peaked my interest with upcoming movies such as Bad Times at the El Royale and Sony’s Venom just over the horizon. Going back to the 1960’s, Bad Times at the El Royale focuses on seven secretive strangers and one hotel, but the great cast list is what captured my attention most throughout the trailer. With actors such as Chris Hemsworth, Jeff Bridges, Dakota Johnson, and Jon Hamm, this movie is bound to be filled with not only action but suspense as well.

Ever since I was a kid, the Venom character has always been my favorite chapter in Marvel’s history. Sony’s Venom stars The Dark Knight Rises and Mad Max actor Tom Hardy, as he learns to cope with having an alien symbiote both physically and mentally attached to him. Interestingly enough, the movie contains no heroes. Venom is comprised of only villains since the anti-hero himself rides the line between both good and evil.
