There are some films you won’t want to miss. Film critic Peter Travers, who is host of ABC News’ “Popcorn With Peter Travers,” shares his top fall picks.
Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem team up for this new psychological thriller from director Darren Aronofsky. The couple’s relationship is tested when unexpected guests arrive at their home. Heavy hitters Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer round out the star power in the film that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
“The Greatest Showman”
Hugh Jackman returns to the big screen, this time as showman Phineas Taylor, aka P.T. Barnum. This film is an original musical celebrating the birth of show business. Travers pointed out that musicals are risky, but the success of last year’s “La La Land” may be a sign that moviegoers might be open to their return.
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is the upcoming eighth film in the Star Wars saga. Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill will return in starring roles.
This is a movie directed by Steven Spielberg. It stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. It’s set in the early 1970s when The Washington Post published the Pentagon Papers.
“The Meyerowitz Stories”
Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler join forces for “The Meyerowitz Stories,” a film about siblings gathering in New York to celebrate their father’s work as an artist.
Mary J. Blige is once again proving she’s much more than an amazing singer. Blige is co-starring opposite Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke and Garrett Hedland in the period drama, “Mudbound.”
Kate Winslet can be seen in a couple of movies this fall. But Woody Allen’s “Wonder Wheel” stands out for Travers.
