The fall movie season often gets overlooked, nestled between the summer and winter holiday blockbuster seasons. However, while the season doesn’t draw the highly anticipated films, there are still many films worth seeing.
Here is a list of the movies coming out this Friday, Oct. 26.
Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving
Summary: Based on the 2004 novel by David Mitchell, which won the British Book Awards Literary Fiction Award, this story takes place in a nineteenth century distant post-apocalyptic future. The story line follows six major characters, whose lives intertwine and affect each other, and the sequence of events flows from past, present and future. This action, mystery and romance will likely keep audiences guessing, and require their undivided attention, as the story jumps from character to character, past to present, and present to future. Screening is available in IMAX
Silent Hill: Revelation
Starring Sean Bean, Kit Harington, Adelaide Clemens
Summary: Based on the video game series by Konami, this sequel to the original horror film “Silent Hill” follows the main character, Heather Mason (Clemens), as she approaches her 18th birthday. Upon her coming of age, Mason realizes her supposed identity is false, further dragging her into the demonic universe she has been avoiding. This horror film, appearing in 3D, is likely to follow along in the first films footsteps with a thrilling, engaging plotline.
Starring Gerard Butler, Elizabeth Shue
Summary: This biographical film follows the life of American surfer Jay Moriarty. Moriarty sets off with large ambitions as a teenager, aiming to ride America’s biggest wave. Moriarty encounters experienced surfer and local legend Frosty Hesson (Butler), who takes him under his wing and mentors him. This film explores themes of apprenticeship and ambition, and is a must-see for surfer fans.
Starring Thomas Mann, Victoria Justice, Johnny Knoxville, Chelsea Handler
Summary: This comedy follows a teenage girl, Wren (Justice), forced to take her younger brother trick-or-treating for Halloween. When Wren decides she would rather go to a party with her friends and brings her brother along, she looses track of him and he goes missing. Wren teams up with her fellow partygoers in an attempt to find her brother before her mother (Handler) finds out. While the plotline seems a bit stale, with comedians like Knoxville and Handler, any story can become comedic genius.
