Ah, fall. The air is (finally!) cooling down, and it’s socially acceptable again to sit inside a dark theater. There are quite a few movies coming out this season that we’re excited about. Now if only MoviePass can stay around long enough for us to see them all … here’s hoping and here’re our 10 picks of the fall!

The Predator

Release date: September 14
Starring: Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Thomas Jane
Director: Shane Black
Fun Fact: Arnold Schwarzenegger was approached to reprise his role as Dutch, but he turned it down.

Venom

Release date: October 5
Starring: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Fun Fact: Tom Hardy’s Venom was allegedly inspired by Woody Allen, Conor McGregor, and Redman.

Bad Times at the El Royale

Release date: October 5
Starring: Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson

First Man

Release date: October 12
Starring: Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Kyle Chandler
Director: Damien Chazelle
Fun Fact: Originally, this film was going to be directed by Clint Eastwood, but Damien Chazelle ended up taking the reins, and it’s now his first movie to not be based around music (La La Land and Whiplash).

Halloween

Release date: October 19
Starring: Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Nick Castle
Director: David Gordan Green
Fun Fact: Nick Castle, who portrayed Michael Myers in the original 1978 film, reprises his role in this direct sequel to the original film. Meaning all the previous sequels are being ignored … thankfully.

Serenity

Release date: October 19 (release date pushed to January 25, 2019)
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Diane Lane
Director: Steven Knight
Fun Fact: This movie was filmed in Mauritius, an island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Madagascar.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Release date: October 24
Starring: Rami Malek, Aiden Gillen, Lucy Boynton
Director: Bryan Singer
What to Expect: Director Bryan Singer was ultimately fired before filming was completed because he reportedly threw an object at star Rami Malek when Malek complained about Singer’s long absences from the set.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Release date: November 16
Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, Jude Law
Director: David Yates
What to Expect: Johnny Depp, who plays baddie Gellert Grindelwald, signed on to this series without reading a script because he is such a big fan of the Harry Potter series.

Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet

Release date: November 21
Starring: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Mandy Moore
Directors: Rich Moore and Phil Johnston
What to Expect: All the Disney princesses are appearing in this film, and all are voiced by their original voice actresses, except for Mary Costa (Aurora in Sleeping Beauty) due to her age.

Aquaman

Release date: December 21
Starring: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe
Director: James Wan
What to Expect: Despite Aquaman being introduced in Justice League, this film won’t feature any other superheroes because director James Wan wants to keep the story clean and simple.
