12 Movies We Most Want to See this Fall

It's officially Fall 2018. We usually talk about Fall in terms of wardrobe, putting away our madras and linen and seersucker in favor of flannel and knitwear and chukka boots. When we can't travel over the weekend, film is our favorite getaway. Another reason we love Fall is saying goodby to the silly flicks of late summer (looking at you, The Meg). Now is the time for Oscar-fare and prestige films. We'll take a large popcorn w/ butter and a Coke, please. It's too early for a review, but based on the synopsis on each film's website here's a list of the 12 movies we looking forward to the most.

1. Bohemian Rhapsody - In theaters November 2, 2018
"Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day."
