“Star Wars: Rogue One” Teaser Poster

Fall is traditionally a fantastic time for movie releases, with some real heavy blockbusters hitting the big screen around this time of year. Given the volume of great movies that are due for release in the coming weeks, is it possible to choose just one as the most anticipated movie of fall this year?

Asian and martial arts films aside, let’s take a closer look at some of the Hollywood contenders that are hoping to nab the title of the best movie of fall 2016. Let’s start with a biggie…

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Gareth Edwards – what have you done to the Star Wars name? All joking aside, this movie, coming out on December 14th, is going to be massive. Whether or not it can exceed the records set by its predecessor remains to be seen, but with the promise of more Darth Vader on screen – and the addition of COF favorites Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen – this first in a standalone Star Wars Anthology series is sure to pack out movie theatres for weeks after its release date.

Doctor Strange

Fresh from roles in the Hobbit movies, Black Mass and Zoolander 2, Benedict Cumberbatch returns to take on his most challenging role yet, that of Marvel comic’s Doctor Strange. This movie is the 14th to be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

That means that you can expect a cameo from at least one other Marvel super hero at some stage in the movie (not to mention a surprise role from one of my favorite martial arts stars, Scott Adkins). Coming this November, this movie is surely one to look out for.

The Girl on the Train

Based on the smash hit novel of the same name, The Girl on the Train busts into theatres in October. For those who have yet to read the book, the basic premise follows Rachael Watson (played by Emily Blunt) on her daily commute via the train service.

A web of mystery follows what should have been a normal morning. We refuse to give any more spoilers so you’ll have to catch it when it’s released for the full story.

Jack Reacher – Never Go Back

Tom Cruise returns as the one man wrecking crew that is Jack Reacher. Set four years after the ending of the first movie, Reacher returns to his old military unit, only to discover that he is being accused of a 16 year old homicide. Naturally, destruction will follow and lots of action is guaranteed. Look for this one in October.


Skipping Dan Brown’s follow up to The Da Vinci Code, in director Ron Howard’s vision, Inferno is the next movie in the Robert Langdon epic. Tom Hanks again reprises the role; with his character Robert Langdon suffering from amnesia. He must make his way across the entirety of Europe (with Rogue One’s Felicity Jones), while attempting to overcome a deadly plot. This one appears in cinemas on October 13th.

Assassin’s Creed

Based on the mega popular video game series, Michael Fassbender brings the Assassin’s to the big screen in a whole new adventure, which are all unrelated to the events of the video games. The back-story of the battle between the Templars and Assassin’s is, of course, present however. This one launches in December and is promised to be a sell-out. However if you are fond of video games we advise you to visit – Casino to find new online games. Or you can just wait when Assassin’s Creed appears on screen and enjoy your time.

  1. Dude, Assassin’s Creed? Inferno? Doctor Strange? Are you serious? 😉

  2. Kyle Warner says:

    Strong lineup of films, HK! Fall could be really good. Certainly has potential to be better than 2016’s rather weak summer season.

    A few I’m looking forward to:
    Shin Godzilla — I’m a Godzilla nut and the new film appears to be the strangest entry in the six decade old series. Stranger than Godzilla vs. Hedorah even! Can’t wait.
    Rogue One — I like Gareth Edwards and I think he has a great eye for visual storytelling. It’s the dramatic, character-driven storytelling that he’s still figuring out. I’m optimistic about Rogue One and I sure hope it’s a success. I’ve long hoped to see Star Wars movies that weren’t entirely focused on the Skywalker saga.
    The Handmaiden — Chan-wook Park returns to Korea for a sexy little arthouse thriller. I don’t need any more details than that, I am excited.
    Silence — Scorsese’s long delayed drama about religion, Japan, and a lost priest could be a sneaky Best Picture favorite. Or it might not even get released this year, it’s still unclear. There’s no trailer yet but it’s Scorsese, so I’ve got the faith. Originally the film was supposed to star Daniel Day Lewis and Benicio del Toro. Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield are less interesting actors, but still fully capable. And Japanese stars Shinya Tsukamoto, Tadanobu Asano, and Sabu make things interesting. Looking forward to it. The Masahiro Shinoda film from 1971 is worth checking out until then.
    Doctor Strange — I like what Marvel’s doing and I’m looking forward to this one, especially because I know so little about the character. Word I hear is that it’s gonna be Marvel’s trippiest, weirdest movie, too.
    The Girl on the Train — I read the book, which I’d probably give a 4 outta 5. Solid debut novel. Emily Blunt’s lead character, if left mostly in tact from page to screen, could be a career defining role for the actress.
    Rings — Well I had to pick at least one horror movie so why not this one?
    Manchester by the Sea — People who’ve seen this festival darling say it’s a masterpiece.
    Voyage of Time — Terrence Malick’s IMAX documentary-thing about the universe. Sort of like that segment from Tree of Life, you know? It looks gorgeous.
    Arrival — Denis Villeneuve’s last four films are masterworks. Arrival is a bigger production than the rest and it looks fairly excellent. And since he’s been hired to direct the Blade Runner sequel, I’m curious to see his first foray into science fiction.
    Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk — Ang Lee tells the story of a war hero with the use of ultra-high speed camera technology. Gotta admit the trailer didn’t do anything for me but I think Lee’s one of the best directors working today, so I’m keen to see it.
