Fall Movie Preview
A couple weeks ago, BZ shared his ten most anticipated fall movies. If you missed it, you can read it here. Since our taste in movies, music, TV and books is usually very different, and because it’s sometimes fun to write about other things besides politics, I thought I’d compile my OWN list of movies I’m anticipating this fall. In no particular order:
Starring Reese Witherspoon
Opens: Sept. 8
Alice, a 40-year-old mother of two, moves home to L.A. post divorce. She allows three budding filmmakers to move into her guest house and unexpectedly begins to fall in love with one of them who also happens to be 20 years her junior. A romantic comedy about a woman who is still trying to find the best version of herself.
Blade Runner 2049
Starring: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Jared Leto & Robin Wright
Opens: Oct. 6
The sequel to the 1982 Blade Runner film follows a new Blade Runner LAPD Officer who has discovered a dark secret that could send humanity into disarray. What he discovers leads him on a mission to find a former Blade Runner who’s been missing for the past 30 years.
Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston
Opens: Nov. 3
The third Thor movie and seventeenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe finds Thor in a battle against his old friend Hulk. In order to save Asgard, Thor must defeat him in a gladiator style challenge and escape imprisonment by his new foe, Hela.

Auggie Pullman was born with a debilitating condition that’s left his face unusually different than most other kids his age. Homeschooled all his life, he decides it’s time for him to branch out and go to school with other kids. A heartwarming tale that’s sure to move audiences.

From director Aaron Sorkin comes the true story of an Olympic class skier who ran a high stakes poker game and also became a target of the FBI. Her poker players included Hollywood elite, athletes and even the Russian mob.
Pitch Perfect 3

The Bellas are back for one last performance – this time competing overseas on a USO tour.
I’m also looking forward to Mother!, Battle of the Sexes, Stronger, and Justice League but BZ already covered those. No need to duplicate! What movies are you anticipating this fall? Comment and let me know!
