We’re pretty much done with the summer movie season, and while it hasn’t been a total bust, it has been a bit of a letdown. But hope begins anew with every new season, and there’s reason to be excited by the films coming up for the remainder of 2016. We’ve got huge franchise pictures like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Doctor Strange, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sitting comfortably alongside major awards films like Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Hacksaw Ridge, and Loving. We’ve also got some solid-looking comedies like Keeping Up with the Joneses, Bad Santa 2, and Office Christmas Party. It’s a diverse slate for the rest of the year, and it can be a bit overwhelming.
That’s why we’ve cut it down to the 42 movies that should be on your radar for the next four months. Granted, there could be some breakthrough pictures at TIFF and we still don’t have an exact release date for Silence, but for movies with a fixed release date, these are the most promising of the bunch. Read on for why you should be excited about what’s on tap for fall 2016.
