Everyone has their own reasons for loving fall, be it the food, the fashion or the weather, however fall is also movie season. This is the time of year when the best movies of the year are released in time to be considered for the big awards in January and February. Here, we will preview four of the most talked about new movies set to come out this fall.



  • The Accountant: Perhaps no movie coming out this year looks as enticing as this one. The Accountant, which stars Ben Affleck and J.K. Simmons, looks to be the most exciting movie of the fall. Affleck plays an accountant who maintains the financial records of some of the most dangerous criminal organizations in the world. The title of this film is misleading; The Accountant is anything but slow, if the trailer is to be believed. Packed with action, a fantastic cast, and a better story, this is one you will not want to miss out on. The Accountant opens October 13.
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: For those of you who don’t know, Rogue One is set in the time period between Star Wars: Episode III and Star Wars: Episode IV. The film focuses on the rebellion’s plot to steal the plans to the Death Star, a mission which ultimately falls into the hands of rebel spies Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones) and Cassian Andor (Diego Luna). This is the first stand-alone film in the Star Wars series, so it will be interesting to see how well it ties in with the episodes that came before and after it. Rogue One is directed by Gareth Edwards, not J.J. Abrams, who directed The Force Awakens, so while it should still be a great film, do not expect it to live up to The Force Awakens. Rogue One opens December 16.
  • Inferno: Who doesn’t love Tom Hanks? Especially when he is starring in one of the films in The Da Vinci Code series. First it was trying to protect the last living descendant of Jesus, then it was trying to save Vatican City from a massive explosion, and now Hanks is scrambling to find the person threatening to release a deadly plague into the world. Thank goodness this stuff is fiction. Robert Langdon (Hanks) teams up with Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), after discovering that he has amnesia, to try and recover his memory. During the time period Langdon cannot remember, he apparently helped steal an artifact that is essential to the plan of those who plan on releasing the plague. Langdon and Brooks must work against the clock to find and stop those who are hell-bent on wiping out half of the world’s population. What else could you ask for? Inferno comes out on October 28.


  • Patriot’s Day: Patriots Day is the one historical movie on this list, and it is one that hits particularly close to home. The film covers the day of the Boston Marathon bombings through the eyes of a police officer, played by Mark Whalberg. The tragedy took place just over three years ago, on April 15, 2013, when three were killed and an estimated 264 injured. In the aftermath, there was a massive manhunt for the suspected bombers, who were eventually found three days after the bombings. There were countless heroic actions taken by police and civilians alike, and this film is one that is certainly going to be worth seeing. Patriots Day opens December 21.
