Here are the top three most anticipated movies of the fall! Mark your calendars!
- A Star Is Born
Release Date : October 11th
Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga star in a romantic musical saga in which the paths of a troubled superstar and an young aspiring singer-songwriter collide – a modern-day remake of the 1976 A Star Is Born, featuring Barbra Streisand. The incredible voice of Lady Gaga combined with original lyrics have created “spectacular” musical hits, and the movie is predicted to be nominated for several Oscars. Definite a must-watch!
- Crazy Rich Asians
Release Date : November 1st
Crazy Rich Asians is the first Hollywood blockbuster with an all-Asian cast and is the highest-earning romantic comedy since 2009 – and it’s no surprise why ! This “Cinderella”, culture-clash remake will make you laugh, cry, and leave you wonderstruck as we follow the story of Rachel Wu, a native New Yorker who is very much in the middle class, who visits her boyfriend’s family in Singapore, and is shocked to find out they are not only wealthy, but crazy rich. Don’t miss this highly-acclaimed romantic comedy/drama! It might just be a new favorite.
- Fantastic Beasts : The Crimes of Grindelwald
Release Date : November 15th
While I know any Harry Potter fan is just counting down the days until this film comes out and surely knows every single detail about it, I’ll help the unknowing few catch up about this highly-anticipated sequel in the epic world of Harry Potter. The Crimes of Grindelwald will feature the adventures of self-proclaimed magizoologist Newt Scamander as he battles the threat of Dark Magic and the infamous wizard Grindelwald (played by Johnny Depp). November 15th cannot come soon enough!
