The Fall movie season usually brings some great films, fun-filled blockbusters, and most of the times, the year’s best picture. Today, we are going to look at 10 films that should get you attention in the final three month of 2016.

Up first in the book to film adaptation The Girl on the Train. This thriller stars Emily Blunt as a train passenger who witnesses an incident that leads into an intense mystery. If you like 2014’s Gone Girl, then you will love this movie. This film will be released on October 7.

Coming out the same weekend on October 7 is The Birth of a Nation. Director, writer, producer, and star Nate Parker is bringing the story of Nat Turner to life, a black male who when taking a trip, realizes the horrible treatment of African American and decides to stand up and fight against the condition they are living in. Expect this to be a major awards contender in a few months.

If you are fan of either Ben Affleck or Anna Kendrick, then you might want to check out The Accountant. This film follows Christian Wolff as he delves into the secrets of his client, as the body count starts to raise. This thriller had a great trailer, and with that all-star cast, this is one you should check out on October 14.

The first fall blockbuster is being released on November 4, Doctor Strange. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange, who ends up in a fatal car accident, and to save himself and the world, must defy reality and introduce, for the first time, magic into the Marvel movies.

After that, on November 18, comes another tale in the wizarding world of Harry Potter, Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them. Set in 1920’s New York, Eddie Redmayne plays Newt Scamander, who unleashes by mistake a case of magical creatures and it is up to him to stop them from wreaking havoc. As a major fan of Harry Potter, this film should be a great return to the franchise.

Now a film that could earn the Best Picture Oscar come February, Manchester by the Sea. Casey Affleck plays Lee, who must take in his brother, and all the trouble that comes along with it. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and has a lot of buzz for everything in it. Look out for this film on November 18.

For Thanksgiving, Disney is giving us a brand new animated film, Moana. The Polynesian princess, singing songs by the creator of Hamilton, takes on an immense challenge by teaming with the demigod Maui, voiced by Dwayne Johnson, to try to save their home. This film should continue the Disney renaissance and comes out on November 23.

Last year, one film made over two billion dollars, that being Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Anyway, since the sequel can not be made until 2017, the corporate minds behind the galaxy far, far away decided to make a prequel film about rebel officers who stole the Death Star plans that occurred before the first Star Wars. This film is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Starring Felicity Jones and Forest Whitaker, they start their journey to steal the plans and defend themselves against the greatest threat in film history, Darth Vader. Prepare yourself to be wowed just like The Force Awakens on December 16.

Lastly, you might know two actors with the name Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. In Passengers, they star as astronauts who wake up early from their space sleep because of a problem on their ship. What they find out could end their lives and the rest of their passengers. Look out for this sci-fi film to follow the trends of Gravity, Interstellar, and The Martian on December 22.

Overall, I hope you check out at least one of these films this fall, and until next time, enjoy the popcorn and see some movies.
