Three of the Most Anticipated Films of the Season

 

 

IT Chapter Two

Sept 6

Pennywise the Clown and his terrifying tricks frightened audiences across the globe in 2017, racking up an impressive $700 million at the box office. This fall, the shape-shifting monster portrayed with demented glee by Bill Skarsgård is back in this film that pits the members of “The Losers Club” against the evil being once again, now as adults 27 years after their initial scrap.

 

Ad Astra

Sept 20

This sci-fi epic starring Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones is a fairly safe bet if you’re looking for a tentpole flick with big names and even bigger special effects. Telling the story of an astronaut (Pitt) who discovers that his missing father (Jones) harbors a weapon that can destroy the Earth, the film offers a Heart of Darkness-like take on space.

 

Joker

Oct 4

Following Heath Ledger’s immortal performance in The Dark Knight is no easy task, but Joaquin Phoenix gives it his best try in this gritty new film directed by Todd Phillips. Reimaging Batman’s arch nemesis as a down-on-his luck oddball set against a Gotham now reminiscent of a 1970s Al Pacino flick, this fresh take on the beloved DC character may prove a potentially divisive, and pretty decent, fall film.
