This October, prepare yourself for a lot of emotion. Between joy and sadness, fear and rebellion, or amazement and sorrow, you will get your fill in the coming months!
After her great interpretation of an Alzheimer woman in Still Alice, Julianne Moore returns in Freehold (October 2nd) as a New Jersey officer suffering from cancer. She fights the county’s board of freeholders to pass her pension benefits to her partner Stacee (Ellen Page).
Inspired by actual events, Freehold approaches the gay rights in a bold love story.
Inspired by the true story of the Kray twins, Legend (October 2nd) will redraw their lives as gangsters during the 1960’s in London. Tom Hardy, recently seen in Mad Max, is playing the lead roles. Yep, roles. Plural.
Soon after Interstellar, in which Matthew McConaughey was absolutely stellar* (*self five), we can soon see Matt Damon as the lead in The Martian (October 2nd). Damon is an astronaut stuck on Mars after his crew left to return to Earth after a bad storm, thinking Damon died in the chaos. Now he must find a way to survive, while waiting for Earth to come back for him.
The legendary Peter Pan arrives once again on the big screen, on October 9th. The director, Joe Wright (Atonement: Pride and Prejudice), shows us the origin of Peter Pan and his first journey to Neverland. There, he will meet Hook, Tiger Lily, and the other historic characters from the Pan universe. Wright mixed up the story with the legendary pirate Blackbeard, to be played by Hugh Jackman.
In Danny Boyle’s new movie, Steve Jobs (October 9th), we are presented with the last Apple genius, to be played by Michael Fassbender. The story will go through the launches of three of Apple’s trademark products, and will follow Jobs’ character and his life during this time period.
After the great TV series True Detective, in which Matthew McConaughey delivered a performance almost as brilliant as that in Interstellar, the director Cary Fukunaga has taken a very different direction in his new project. A brutal and heart breaking story about a young orphan trained to join a group of savage soldiers since birth, Beast Of No Nation will be coming out in theaters and VOD on Netflix on the October 16th.
Once again Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks collaborate for our great pleasure in a blockbuster written by the Coen brothers. Bridge of Spies (October 16th) presents a lawyer hired by the CIA to defend a Soviet spy in trade for a captured American U-2 pilot (Gary Powers). What more can I say? This is going to be good.
After being a soldier, a drug addict, and an FBI age, Bradley Cooper is now a Chef in a restaurant in Paris. Burnt (october 23rd) shows the journey of a character with one goal in mind, to land a job at a mainstream restaurant, and it will make your mouth water.
