October is here and that means it’s time to watch some good movies.
The fall season has already started off strong with impressive titles like the blockbuster “It” and the Oscar-buzzy Jake Gyllenhaal drama “Stronger.”
And things will only get better with event movies like “Blade Runner 2049” and “Justice League” mixed with dramas like “Call Me By Your Name” and “Mudbound,” coming soon.
Here are 34 movies coming out this fall that you shouldn’t miss:
