30 Tabulous Fall Films: 1~15

September 26, 2018

By Tab Byrum

There are so many movies coming out between now and the end of the year, some of them I’m really excited about and I’m going to share 30 of them with you today and tomorrow.  Enjoy!!!

A House With A Clock In Its Walls


We saw The House With A Clock In Its Walls last week and loved it. I read the book as a child and remember how fun it was. I’ve heard some people say the film was too much for their younger kids so I’m not sure you should take anyone under 12. The movie is very fun and if you and your kids are Harry Potter fans you’ll like House. Opened September 14th.



I’ve always been fascinated by the tale of Lizzie Borden, the woman accused of murdering her father and step-mother but then is acquitted of the crime.  Lizzie is the 2018 retelling of the tale premiered at Sundance earlier this year and is getting great reviews. The film opened September 14th.


Bel Canto


I’ve been hearing and reading a lot about Bel Canto and am very intrigued.  The film stars Julianne Moore and Ken Watanabe, she’s an opera star and he’s a wealthy Japanese industrialist. Long story short, she’s scheduled to give a private performance in South America at a private home and terrorists raid the party and take everyone hostage for a month and people fall in love, PERFECT!!! Opened September 14th.




The film Colette is based on the life of the French novelist of the same name. It tells the story of a French woman who set the world on fire with her stories of Claudine but the kicker is that the stories are thought to be written by her husband. You can check out the trailer for the film here it opened on September 21st in limited release and nationwide October 12th. 

A Star Is Born


Ever since this movie was announced the world has been waiting to see what Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper would do to the story of A Star Is Born. This is the fourth incarnation of the film with the others starring Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand telling the story of the young woman plucked from obscurity by the man who is already a star, but what happens when her stardom begins to eclipse his. The film opens on October 5th. 




The newest release from the Marvel Comics Universe is Venom, the story of a reporter played by Tom Hardy who fuses with an alien creating one big toothed bad creature. The film also stars Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson and opens on October 5th. 

The Happy Prince


I’m so glad to see Rupert Everett return to the big screen, especially in a film he not only stars in but also wrote and directed, The Happy Prince. The film looks at the life of the Irish author and playwright, Oscar Wilde, especially in the last days of his life. The film also stars Colin Firth and Emily Watson and opens on October 10th. 

Bad Times At The El Royale


Billed as disorienting with plenty of plot twists, Bad Times At The El Royale promises to be fun, weird and mysterious set in a Lake Tahoe hotel in the 1960’s. The film has an all-star cast with Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, John Hamm and Dakota Johnson among the cast. You can check into the El Royale on October 12th. 

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween


When I taught elementary school the Goosebump books from R.L. Stine were one of my favorite things to read aloud to the kids, especially in the fall around Halloween. Just in time for everyone’s favorite spooky holiday is Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, where Slappy the puppet wants to create his perfect family with the help of all his ghoulish fiends…I mean friends. The film opens on October 12th. 



Just in time for its namesake holiday Halloween is back in 2018 and Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode. This film is being billed as a direct sequel to the original Halloween which came out 40 years ago. This time Michael Myers is coming back for his little sister but she’s armed and ready for him…she hopes. You can revisit Laurie and Michael on October 19th. 

Can You Ever Forgive Me?



I love it when great comedians dive into the world of drama and Melissa McCarthy does just that in Can You Ever Forgive Me? McCarthy plays author Lee Israel who is famous for writing celebrity biographies but when her books are no longer selling she has to find another way to make a living, her new career involves forgery. I’m really excited about this film, it opens October 19th. 

Hunter Killer


Submarine thrillers are really big at our house, I can’t tell you how many times we’ve watched Hunt For Red October, and this new film, Hunter Killer, is set in that same genre. The film stars Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman in a story of kidnapping the President of Russia and the Americans send in a submarine to help rescue him…sounds a little too close to home. The film opens on October 26th. 

Bohemian Rhapsody

We’ve loved Queen since we were teenagers, know all the lyrics by heart and were heartbroken when Freddy Mercury died way too early but now we can celebrate Freddy and Queen all over again with this new biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, the story of Queen’s rise to fame and the man who led them. The film opens November 2nd. 



Suspiria was originally made in the 1970’s and the thing that grabbed my attention about it was that it starred Joan Bennett who had been in Dark Shadows, one of my favorite shows as a child. Now we have a remake of this haunting tale of witches and ballet set in Germany, this time starring Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson. Check this out on November 2nd. 

The Nutcracker And The Four Realms


Just in time to kick off the holidays, The Nutcracker And The Four Realms is a new retelling of the classic Nutcracker Ballet. The film is being compared to Alice In Wonderland in a good way and looks visually amazing, hopefully, the acting and the script is equally as amazing. This film opens on November 2nd. 

That’s the first 15 films we’re excited about for the last quarter of 2018, check back tomorrow as we check out 15 more films. Have a great day and Enjoy!!!
