Every movie coming to theaters in october 2022.

October 2022 will see the return of a terrifying clown, a new movie from the DCEU, the final killing spree of Michael Myers, and more.

October 2022 will see the arrival of more horror movies right on time for Halloween season along with movies from other genres, such as the sequel to a terrifying slasher movie, Michael Myers’ final killing spree, a new superhero movie from the DC Extended Universe, a drama movie starring Harry Styles, and more. Although cinemas around the world are open and working as usual again, thus allowing studios to release their movies in theaters again, many are still opting for simultaneous releases on different streaming platforms or shortening the window between theatrical and streaming releases, and some of October’s newest movies will follow some of these plans.

September saw a variety of movies arriving in theaters , such as the horror movie Barbarian , Kevin Smith’s Clerks III , the historical epic story The Woman King , the horror movies Pearl and Smile , and the psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling . Some of September’s releases were simultaneously released on streaming platforms and more, as were the cases of Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul on Peacock and House of Darkness on VOD and digital.

The Biggest Movies Coming to Theaters in October 2022

movies in movie theaters october 2022

The industry enters October desperately needing a rebound after the lows of August and September. 

The doldrums were preceded by a strong summer, with June coming in only -16% behind the same month in the last pre-pandemic year of 2019; July had only a -12% dip. But things changed dramatically when August plummeted down to -44% versus the same month in 2019. September was even worse, possibly finishing at worse than -50% behind 2019. September 2022 even finished lower than September 2021, when the box office was still only tentatively starting to recover from the Covid pandemic. During Labor Day weekend in early September this year, the release schedule was so sparse that re-releases accounted for not one but two of the frame’s top 10 films: 1975’s Jaws and 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home .

October looks to give the box office a boost—though, admittedly, it’s not until later in the year that two potentially gargantuan sequels ( Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and  Avatar: The Way of Water) hit screens. (Both original installments earned $700M+.) Still, October sees Hollywood unveiling a new DC Comics adaptation, a romantic comedy starring two of the biggest movie stars on the planet, a horror sequel, and even a musical with original songs.

Here are the biggest movies coming to cinemas in October 2022.

Friday, October 7

Premise:  Margot Robbie, Christian Bale, and John David Washington ( BlacKkKlansman and Tenet ) play the three leads in 20th Century Studios’ historical crime comedy-drama set in the glamorous 1930s. David O. Russell wrote and directed, with an all-star supporting cast including Robert De Niro, Rami Malek, Anya Taylor-Joy, Zoe Saldana, Taylor Swift, Chris Rock, Michael Shannon, and Mike Myers.

Box office:  Current projections are around $35M-$60M, in line with with Russell’s previous release, 2015’s  Joy ($56.4M). Similar adult-skewing crime films with large ensemble casts include 2021’s House of Gucci ($53.8M), 2013’s  Gangster Squad ($46.0M), and 2015’s The Big Short ($70.2M).

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile

Premise: Based on Bernard Waber’s bestselling 1960s picture book series about a crocodile who lives in New York City, Sony Pictures’ musical stars Shawn Mendes as the voice of the CGI animated reptile, with Javier Bardem and Constance Wu as his live-action friends. Original songs for the film were co-written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who previously wrote songs for La La Land and  The Greatest Showman .

Box office: Current projections are around $65M-$95M, in line with  DC League of Super-Pets at $91.6M (to-date) and on track for a total around $95M. Other comparable films with live-action humans and CGI animals include 2016’s Pete’s Dragon ($76.2M), 2018’s  Christopher Robin ($99.2M), and 2015’s  Alvin and the Chipmunks: Road Chip ($85.8M). Having Mendes post a few times to his Instagram account with 70+ million followers surely won’t hurt the box office, either.

Halloween Ends

Friday, october 14.

Premise: Based on the title, one would assume this is Universal’s final installment in the longrunning Halloween horror franchise, which dates back to 1978. Jamie Lee Curtis’s character Laurie Strode is back yet again, having miraculously survived every previous encounter with masked serial killer Michael Myers. David Gordon Green, who directed the franchise’s two prior installments, returns behind the camera.

Box office: Preexisting box office projections went out the window when Universal announced  Ends would be released day-and-date simultaneously in both cinemas and on Peacock, news that only came out on August 23, less than two months before the film’s release. Universal used the same day-and-date release strategy for October 2021’s prior installment Halloween Kills , which earned $92.0M. That marked a -42% decline from the pre-pandemic, theatrically exclusive Halloween, which earned $159.3M.

Friday, October 21

Premise:  The newest entry in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe stars Dwayne Johnson as the titular antihero. The film has been in the works for a while, with Johnson reportedly in talks for the role as early as 2007. Pierce Brosnan costars, with Jaume Collet-Serra directing after having previously helmed Johnson’s 2021 film Jungle Cruise .

Box office: Current projections have this earning somewhere around the same amount as 2019’s fellow DC release Shazam! with $140.3M. Several of Johnson’s most recent live-action starring roles have also earned in that $100M-$200M range, including 2018’s  Rampage ($101.0M), 2019’s  Hobbs & Shaw ($173.9M), and 2021’s Jungle Cruise ($116.9M with a simultaneous day-and-date release in cinemas and on Disney+).

Ticket to Paradise

Premise: Universal’s romantic comedy pairs George Clooney and Julia Roberts as a divorced couple who feel old sparks return when they team up and travel to the tropics in an attempt to stop their daughter from marrying a man she just met. The real-life friends have costarred in four prior films: 2001’s Ocean’s Eleven , 2002’s  Confessions of a Dangerous Mind , 2004’s  Ocean’s Twelve , and 2016’s  Money Monster . Ol Parker (2018’s Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again ) directs.

Box office:  Current projections have this film earning around $40M-$65M. Even though it’s hardly in the same genre, the aforementioned Clooney/Roberts Money Monster earned a similar $41.0M. A best-case scenario would be March’s romantic comedy (and fantasy adventure) The Lost City with $105.3M.

Friday, October 28

Premise: The 1955 murder of black 14-year-old boy Emmett Till in Mississippi became a pivotal point in the civil rights movement after his mother Mamie Till-Mobley insisted on an open-casket funeral and the national publication of the corpse’s photograph. United Artists Releasing’s historical drama stars Jalyn Hall as Emmett Till and Danielle Deadwyler as his mother. Chinonye Chukwu ( Clemency ) directs. 

Box office: Till opens in limited release on Friday, October 14 before expanding wide two weeks later. A worst-case scenario might be 2021’s Aretha Franklin biopic Respect ($24.2M). Medium comparisons would include 2019’s Harriet Tubman biopic Harriet ($43.0M), 2015’s Selma ($52.0M), and 2013’s 12 Years a Slave ($56.6M). Best-case scenarios, albeit unlikely ones, including grosses like 2013’s 42 ($95.0M) or 2013’s Lee Daniels’ The Butler ($116.6M).

Prey for the Devil

Premise:  Lionsgate’s horror stars Jacqueline Byers as Sister Ann, a nun who realizes the demon she must exorcise from a young girl is the same one who haunted her own mother years before. The film has been long delayed, having originally been scheduled for January 2021. Daniel Stamm directs, of 2010’s The Last Exorcism , directs.

Box office:  The Last Exorcism earned $41.0M, although  Devil seems highly unlikely to match that—its total may not even reach Exorcism ‘s $20.3M opening take. For comparison, last year’s main weekend-before-Halloween horror release was Antlers, which finished with $10.6M total. In 2019, that main horror release was Countdown , which earned a higher $25.6M.

Every movie you need to know about for October, including Ticket To Paradise, Black Adam, and the final Halloween

Every movie you need to know about for october, including ticket to paradise , black adam , and the final halloween, your october moviegoing schedule figures to be packed, with films starring george clooney and julia roberts, dwayne johnson, cate blanchett, and harry styles.

Clockwork from bottom left: Halloween Ends (Photo: Ryan Green/Universal Pictures); My Policeman (Photo: Amazon Studios); Black Adam (Photo: Warner Bros. Pictures); Hellraiser (Photo: Spyglass Media Group); Ticket To Paradise (Photo: Vince Valitutti)

October typically brings about a horror bonanza for moviegoers, and the final Halloween installment and a new Hellraiser certainly fit the bill. But after the horror hits of September 2022 , this month’s theme seems to be simply a deluge of cinema: awards season is heating up, so Cate Blanchett in Tár , Colin Farrell in The Banshees Of Inisherin , and Harry Styles playing a gay cop in My Policeman are in the mix, but there’s also all-but-guaranteed blockbusters like George Clooney and Julia Roberts’ Ticket To Paradise and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Black Adam . Read on for The A.V. Club ’s moviegoing recommendations for October and what you should know about each.

Amsterdam (October 7, theaters everywhere)

Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and John David Washington lead a stacked cast—including Robert De Niro, Rami Malek, Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Rock, Zoe Saldaña, and so many more—in Amsterdam , a frantic 1930s murder-mystery caper from David O. Russell ( American Hustle , Silver Linings Playbook ). When an army general dies under mysterious circumstances, his daughter (Taylor Swift) asks two former soldiers from his unit (Bale and Washington) to look into it. Together with a nurse and aspiring artist (Robbie) they befriended in Amsterdam after the war, the trio uncovers a conspiracy deeper than any of them could have imagined.

The political undertones linking this period piece directly to what’s going on in the country today will likely become a major talking point, as will the showy performances by the actors come awards season. It’s not hard on the eyes, either, although there is a running gag where Bale’s character keeps losing his fake one. If that sort of comedy sounds appealing, this should be right up your (very dark) alley. [Cindy White]

Tár (October 7, theaters everywhere)

Cate Blanchett’s forte on screen is women unraveling. Think Blue Jasmine (2013) or Notes On A Scandal (2006). Her characters are often barely holding it together, with circumstances conspiring to make them completely lose it. Blanchett seems to have found another opportunity to tear into such a role and give another ferocious, searing performance. In Todd Field’s Tár , Blanchett plays the fictional Lydia Tár, an internationally renowned composer and the first-ever female chief conductor of a major German orchestra. As she prepares to record her greatest symphony, her world comes crashing down when a scandal threatens both her personal and professional lives. An actor ( Eyes Wide Shut ) as well as director, Field made two highly acclaimed films in the early Aughts: In The Bedroom (2001) and Little Children (2006). Many projects have been announced since then, and none came to fruition until Tár , which he wrote specifically for Blanchett. Venice Film Festival buzz was through the roof; critics are embracing Field’s comeback after a 16-year absence and Blanchett’s performance has been hailed as another peak in her much-lauded career. [Murtada Elfadl]

Triangle Of Sadness (October 7, select theaters)

The title refers to the area between the eyebrows that contains the “worry wrinkle,” frequently and swiftly botoxed by the rich and vain. The director is Ruben Östlund, making his English-language debut after wowing audiences at Cannes and elsewhere with The Square , his scathing satire of pretentiousness in the arts, and the way real life often imitates performance art. In Triangle Of Sadness , he targets pomposity on the part of the rich in general and social media influencers in particular.

Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (the late Charlbi Dean ) play models on an extravagant cruise that appears to have everything ... except protection against storms. Under the command of a drunken Marxist ship captain (Woody Harrelson), nerves fray, an extravagant meal leads to copious amounts of vomiting and diarrhea, and eventually it turns into a Lord Of The Flies desert island scenario. Popular Filipina actress Dolly de Leon plays the toilet manager, who presumably has more than her metaphorical hands full. If you’re not the type to be easily put off by a poster of a wealthy woman vomiting liquid gold, proceed. [Luke Y. Thompson]

Hellraiser (October 7, Hulu)

Hellraiser , written and directed by Clive Barker, and based on his novella The Hellbound Heart , wowed horror fans in 1987 with its gore, mounting tension, and perverse sensuality. The plot centered on a mysterious puzzle box that, when solved, unleashed Cenobites, demonic creatures that derive pleasure from torturing their victims. Doug Bradley, as the lead Cenobite—later called Pinhead—chewed the scenery, earning his place as a horror convention staple alongside Robert Englund, Tony Todd, Linda Blair, etc. Sadly, after 1988’s Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 , the eight subsequent Hellraisers proved frightfully bad, devoid of budget, story, or both.

That brings us to October 7, when Hulu—via Disney Platform Distribution!—will unleash Hellraiser , a reboot that reanimates the source material. The trailer won’t make sense to non-fans, but for the Hellraiser faithful, its effects and familiar notes from the original’s score look promising. David Bruckner ( The Ritual, The Night House ) directs, Odessa A’zion stars as Riley, a young addict who comes into possession of the puzzle box, and Jamie Clayton, the trans Sense8 sensation, plays the new Pinhead. Best of all, Barker is a producer and was reportedly hands-on. [Ian Spelling]

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile (October 7, theaters everywhere)

One of the biggest shocks in all of cinematic history is the sheer perfection that is Paddington and its somehow-even-better sequel . Nothing could prepare audiences for the cuteness, the cleverness, and the simple loveliness of them both. Naturally, studios are looking to copy that template and Sony Pictures is first out of the gate with a live-action adaptation of a popular classic children’s book: Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile . The film’s trailer reveals a family discovering Lyle the crocodile in their bathtub, opening their front door to find his owner (Javier Bardem, dressed like a grungy circus owner) standing there looking creepy, as he is wont to do. Cue the uplifting music as a young boy tries to convince everyone that the croc isn’t dangerous but instead highly talented at singing (indeed, Lyle is voiced by pop star Shawn Mendes). We’ll find out how charming another live-action talking animal vehicle is when Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile hits screens on October 7. [Don Lewis]

Till (October 14, select theaters)

One might naturally assume this to be a movie about Emmett Till, the 14-year-old whose brutal 1955 lynching drew national attention to the Civil Rights movement and inspired the likes of Rosa Parks. But rather than dwell on the violent murder, Till actually focuses on the life of his mother, Mamie Till-Mobley (Danielle Deadwyler), and her pursuit of justice over the years. Whoopi Goldberg plays her mother Alma, and Frankie Faison is her brother John. Doctor Who ’s Tosin Cole plays slain activist Medgar Evers, with Roger Guenveur Smith as activist Dr. T.R.M. Howard.

Emmett Till’s late cousin Simeon Wright served as a consultant on the project, which draws on years of research and the reopening of the case in 2004, a year after Till-Mobley died. Director Chinonye Chukwu follows 2019’s impressive, Sundance-winning anti-death penalty movie, Clemency starring Alfre Woodard, with what is sure to be an equally powerful look at racial injustice. We can only hope that some of the people in this country who could really use a refresher on the subject actually take it in. [Luke Y. Thompson]

Halloween Ends (October 14, theaters and Peacock)

Haddonfield’s real estate market must be dead by now. The small town has served as the slaying grounds for Michael Myers, the masked slasher who began his carnage in John Carpenter’s 1978 Halloween . Many sequels later, director David Gordon Green ditched most of the muddled canon and revitalized the franchise with 2018’s Halloween and 2021’s Halloween Kills . Those two installments once again pitted iconic Final Girl Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) against the murderous Michael. Laurie failed to stop his reign of terror and Ends culminated with her daughter, Karen (Judy Greer), meeting a gory demise at the hands of The Shape.

The final chapter of Green’s trilogy, Halloween Ends , promises a brutal showdown between Laurie and Michael. But can evil truly die? Ends picks up four years after Michael’s previous bloodfest. Laurie is in a good place. She’s taken steps to put all the fear behind her. But that tranquil existence soon shatters when a young man is accused of killing the boy he was babysitting. Somehow, that death ties into Michael, and with his return, Laurie must summon the strength to put this boogeyman to rest … once and for all. But considering the movie’s trailer teases an intense kitchen brawl with Michael throwing Laurie around and almost jamming her hand down a garbage disposal, it might be this Final Girl’s last stand. [Bryan Cairns]

The School For Good And Evil (October 19, Netflix)

Based on the first book in the School For Good And Evil series by Soman Chainani, this fairytale fantasy follows two best friends who are drafted into an elite program that trains both heroes and villains. They soon learn that all the stories they thought were make-believe are actually based on past graduates of the school. When the two girls are set on very different paths, their friendship is tested in unexpected and perilous ways.

Directed by Paul F ei g ( Bridesmaids , Ghostbusters ), the film stars Sophia Anne Caruso and Sofia Wylie as the two students (one of which is also named Sophie, just to make things more confusing). The teaching staff is filled with recognizable names and faces, including Kerry Washington, Charlize Theron, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Peter Serafinowicz, Rob Delaney, Mark Heap, Patti LuPone, Ben Kingsley, and Rachel Bloom. The plot will reportedly not follow the original book exactly as written, but Chainani, who is credited as an executive producer, did give input on the changes and made sure to preserve the standout moments, so fans can be assured that the project is in good hands. [Cindy White]

My Policeman (October 21, select theaters)

Harry Styles is everywhere right now: atop the pop charts, on a sold-out world tour, dating Olivia Wilde, fronting music videos for his songs, making hearts everywhere beat just a little faster, and acting in two fall movies. You may have heard he stars opposite Florence Pugh and Chris Pine in September’s Wilde-directed psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling , and alongside Emma Corrin and David Dawson in My Policeman , which will open on October 21 in limited theatrical release before streaming on Amazon Prime Video on November 4.

My Policeman seems like the more daring choice for the versatile Styles. He stars as Tom, a young, closeted policeman in 1950s England who marries school teacher Marion (Corrin) while carrying on a romance with museum curator Patrick (Dawson). How long can Tom and Patrick keep their secret ... a secret? Not for long, if award-winning stage director Michael Grandage, making his second feature (after Genius ), sticks to Bethan Roberts’ 2012 novel on which the movie is based. Linus Roache, Gina McKee, and Rupert Everett play the older versions of Tom, Marion, and Patrick. [Ian Spelling]

Raymond & Ray (October 21, Apple TV+)

Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke team up for this dark comedy about a pair of estranged half-brothers forced to reunite after their mutual father dies. McGregor plays Raymond Harris, who must inform his younger brother Ray, played by Hawke, of their father’s death—and his last request, that his sons not only attend his funeral together but dig his grave. To learn more about the man they both despised, they seek out the people who knew him best near the end of his life, including his last wife (Maribel Verdu), their son Simon (Maxim Swinton), his pastor (Vondie Curtis-Hall), and his nurse (Sophie Okonedo). In these second-hand accounts they discover a softer side of him they never knew existed.

Colombian director Rodrigo García (whose work you’re likely to have seen on TV series like In Treatment , Six Feet Under , and The Sopranos ) leads this exemplary cast through Raymond & Ray ’s unexpectedly emotional journey of grief, pain, resentment, hope, and catharsis. We probably never would have thought to pair these two up as siblings, but it works. [Cindy White]

The Banshees Of Inisherin (October 21, theaters everywhere)

The Banshees Of Inisherin reunites the In Bruges trio of Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and writer-director Martin McDonagh, which should be plenty enticing for any self-respecting moviegoer. But McDonagh also has our curiosity piqued as to how he’ll manage to take his wisp of a story idea and expand it into one of his trademark tales of masculinity tested and found into something sad and slightly ridiculous. Gleeson plays a brooding fiddler named Colm who, without any apparent reason, suddenly decides he no longer wants to be friends with his longtime pub mate, Pádraic (Farrell). As the hurt and confused Pádraic presses Colm for a reconciliation, or at least an explanation, Colm threatens to cut off one of his own fingers with a set of shears every time Pádraic talks to him.

Look for Farrell, who’s getting better with age, and Gleeson to have a field day with McDonagh’s brilliant dialogue, which can be acerbic, poetic, and recognizably human, often at the same time. The film, which co-stars Kerry Condon ( Better Call Saul ) and Barry Keoghan ( Eternals ) takes place during the Irish Civil War and was shot on an island off the Irish coast that looks appropriately bleak and isolating. It’s the perfect location for this interpersonal drama about a grievance that is both petty and existential, one that explodes into a conflict as tragic yet unavoidable as the war that wages across the unyielding sea.

The Return Of Tanya Tucker – Featuring Brandi Carlile (October 21, select theaters)

Only 13 years old when her debut hit “Delta Dawn” propelled her out of the Nashville bubble and into the pop stratosphere, honey-voiced hellraiser Tanya Tucker defiantly bucked the conventions expected of country queens. On and offstage, she favored skintight Elvis Presley pants over flowy, flowery Loretta Lynn gowns, reigning as a sexy, non-conforming outlaw who followed her own muse until time and a hard-living lifestyle took a toll. Seventeen years after her last album, with life and experience adding even greater, smokier authenticity to her voice, The Return Of Tanya Tucker finds her coaxed back into the studio by none other than Brandi Carlile—a young fan she inspired who also found her own way to superstardom—revealing the country icon’s life journey through song. This Sony Pictures Classics documentary provides an intimate glimpse into Tucker’s at-first hesitant steps into what would become a glorious professional comeback, as well as an argument for her rightful place in the country music pantheon, all as one contemporary musical success story pays tribute to a legacy artist who bravely paved the way.

Ticket To Paradise (October 21, theaters everywhere)

George Clooney and Julia Roberts in a good, old-fashioned lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers-again romantic comedy? Yes, please! While the rest of October’s releases may be dark, scary, heavy, or at least edgy in some way, this lighthearted rom-com set in gorgeous Bali is like a tropical holiday for your overworked brain and frazzled nerves. Give them both the night off and give in to the pure fluff of Ticket To Paradise .

The two ultimate A-listers play a divorced couple who discover on the way to their daughter’s (Kaitlyn Dever) destination wedding that the only thing they still have in common is a desire to keep her from making the same mistake they did. They agree to make amends long enough to stop the wedding from happening. Will they come to their senses and realize that she’s old enough to make her own decisions? While also rekindling their still-smoldering romance? It wouldn’t be much fun if they didn’t. The real enjoyment here is in watching it all happen and appreciating the crackling chemistry between two legendary romantic leads. [Cindy White]

Black Adam (October 21, theaters everywhere)

Have you heard? The hierarchy of the DC Universe is about to change. While the tagline is more likely a pithy marketing strategy courtesy of Dwayne Johnson than a factual statement, Black Adam does look like it’ll be an entertaining entry into the DCEU and deliver classic superhero smash-up action and visuals. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra ( Jungle Cruise ), Black Adam is centered on the antihero Teth-Adam, granted powers by the gods and awakened 500 years after his imprisonment. His harsh form of justice puts him in the crosshairs of do-gooders like The Justice Society of America: Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), and Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan). But they must put aside their differences to stop the demonic villain, Sabbac (Marwan Kenzari).

Black Adam has been a passion project for Johnson since 2007, and the actor has been very hands-on throughout the film’s development, calling it his most challenging role to date. While the character, best known as a Shazam antagonist, isn’t one of DC’s most well-known characters, there’s a lot riding on the film. From sequels to spin-off projects revolving around the JSA, and even a much-rumored clash with Superman, Black Adam could very well decide the future of the DCEU as it enters a new transitional period. So hopefully whatever The Rock’s been cooking for 15 years wins over DC fans and global audiences. [Richard Newby]

Armageddon Time (October 28, theaters everywhere)

The master filmmaker memoir is becoming a cinema mainstay. Alfonso Cuarón started this recent resurgence with 2018’s Roma , and we’ve since seen 2019’s Pain and Glory from Pedro Almodóvar, 2021’s Belfast from Kenneth Branagh and The Hand of God from Paolo Sorrentino. Soon we’ll have The Fabelmans from Steven Spielberg. All of these directors have revisited their childhoods to devise fictionalized stories inspired by events they lived through. Armageddon Time is James Gray’s version. The director of Ad Astra and The Immigrant has always tried to examine the validity of the American Dream in his movies, and it seems that he continues to do that with this memoir piece.

And rather than a rosy nostalgia exercise, Gray means to explore the structural inequities of the American experience. This story centers on a young Russian Jewish boy from Queens, New York, based on Gray and played by Banks Repeta, and his friendship with a Black boy from the neighborhood played by Jaylin Webb. An incident of boyish transgression sends the friends on completely different paths due to both their actions and the community’s response. Anne Hathaway, Jeremy Strong, and Anthony Hopkins round out the cast as the lead character’s parents and grandfather, respectively. [Murtada Elfadl]

Decision To Leave - Mubi

Kaitlyn Dever will surely charm audiences in Ticket To Paradise , but the week prior she’ll do the same playing the eponymous role in Rosaline (Hulu October 14), a comedic twist on Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet centered on Juliet’s cousin. In fact, compelling lead actresses abound this month: Andrea Riseborough and Allison Janney star in To Leslie (select theaters October 7); Maika Monroe is back in thriller mode with Significant Other (Paramount+ October 7); Elizabeth Banks leads abortion history drama Call Jane (select theaters October 28); and Claire Denis directs Margaret Qualley in Stars At Noon (select theaters October 14).

Netflix has a typically busy month, with Mila Kunis in Luckiest Girl Alive (October 7); Jaeden Martell and Donald Sutherland in Mr. Harrigan’s Phone (October 5); Halloween caper The Curse Of Bridge Hollow (October 14); the stop-motion-animated Wendell & Wild (October 21); Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne in The Good Nurse (October 21); and a German remake of All Quiet On The Western Front (October 28). Speaking of non-English-language fare, don’t miss Park Chan-wook’s film festival hit Decision To Leave (Heojil Kyolshim) , to be released on Mubi and in select theaters October 14. [Jack Smart]

The 5 Most Anticipated Movies of October 2022

A dc antihero rises to the top of the list, eding out a pair of horror icons and a couple of smaller films with big names both in front of and behind the camera..

movies in movie theaters october 2022

TAGGED AS: movies

It is officially spooky season, but you wouldn’t necessarily know that from looking at the results of our social media polls. Sure, a couple of notable horror films made the Most Anticipated list for this month, but they were both trumped by a superhero flick led by Dwayne Johnson. Plus, fans couldn’t resist the potential of a David O. Russell movie with a stellar ensemble or the promise of an  In Bruges reunion for Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and writer-director Martin McDonagh. Read on for the 5 Most Anticipated Movies of October 2022!

Black Adam (2022)

#1 on Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube; #3 on Facebook In theaters on October 21

Heading the pack this month – and, as previously noted, beating a couple of high-profile horror flicks – is Warner Bros.’ DC superhero movie  Black Adam , which likely enjoyed a nice bump from the star power of Dwayne Johnson. Originally slated to appear as a villain opposite Shazam, Black Adam was ultimately given his own film partly thanks to a bit of persuasion on the part of Johnson, who had been attached to the project since as early as 2006. Now we not only get Black Adam, but the introduction of the Justice Society of America, and that has rightfully sparked fans’ interest.

Halloween Ends (2022)

#1 on Facebook, #2 on Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube In theaters and streaming on Peacock on October 14

Pulling into second, not far behind  Black Adam , is the final chapter in David Gordon Green’s Halloween sequel trilogy, as Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode faces off against Michael Myers for the last time… presumably. It’s not hard to imagine Universal will try to revive the franchise again in some form or another down the line, but for now, it’s been fun to follow along this more serialized story and get some closure to it. At least, that seems to be the consensus among our followers on social media.

Hellraiser (2022)

#2 on Facebook, #3 on Instagram and Twitter, #4 on YouTube Streaming on Hulu on October 7

The  Hellraiser franchise has been a horror staple since the original film was unleashed upon audiences back in 1987, but even fans of the series would admit that the subsequent nine films saw a dramatic decline in quality. With that in mind, it’s a pleasant surprise that a new direct-to-streaming installment has made it this high on the list, and that’s at least partially due to the trailer that was released just a couple of weeks ago, promising a gory, disturbing return to form. The other factor here may be the involvement of director David Bruckner, who has given us a couple of rock-solid thrillers in recent years with  The Ritual and  The Night House .

Amsterdam (2022)

#3 on YouTube, #4 on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter In theaters on October 7

Even if we didn’t know anything about the film, Amsterdam probably would have made it on this list by virtue of its cast and director alone. It’s the latest from David O. Russell ( Silver Linings Playbook ,  American Hustle ) and it boasts an expansive cast of A-listers that includes Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Rock, Michael Shannon, Robert De Niro, and a bunch more folks. Unfortunately, early reviews have not been kind, and that may have dampened some of the enthusiasm for it, but it still ranks fourth on this month’s list.

The Banshees of Inisherin (2022)

#5 on Facebook and Instagram In theaters on October 21

Finally, just squeezing its way into the top five ahead of the stop motion-animated Wendell & Wild and the Cate Blanchett showcase  Tár , we have  The Banshees of Inisherin , which might have more casual moviegoers scratching their heads. The primary reason this is a must-watch for some fans is because it marks the reunion of writer-director Martin McDonagh and stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, who last worked together on a little 2008 dark comedy called In Bruges , which went on to earn a devoted cult following. The film has already earned rave reviews out of its Venice premiere, so this could become a sleeper hit.

We have entered spooky season and this week has everything you could possibly want to keep you in the mood. Below, we share the best new weekend movies to watch in theaters and available on streaming services that you won’t want to miss.

Each and every week a boatload of new movies comes out, and I’m sure you’re like me and can’t find what you want to watch or what channel any of them are on. With the vast amount of streaming platforms , you know that you can easily miss things. However, we here at Hidden Remote like to help you stay on top of the new releases.

Weekend movies to watch (and stream) today

  • Tár , Theaters
  • Hellraiser,  Hulu
  • Catherine Called Birdy,  Prime Video
  • Significant Other,  Paramount+
  • Werewolf by Night,  Disney+
  • Luckiest Girl Alive,  Netflix

There has been a MASSIVE amount of praise surrounding Cate Blanchett for her performance as Lydia Tár in the upcoming film  Tár . Some people have already locked her in as the winner at the Oscars and honestly, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit.  Tár will probably only release in select theaters, but from what I’ve heard, it is a MUST-SEE in theaters, so seek it out!

We are about to see Marvel take their biggest risk to date with the release of Werewolf by Night.  The upcoming movie/TV special follows a superhero who fights evil using the abilities given to him by a curse. The movie is directed by famed composer Michael Giacchino ( Spider-Man: No Way Home ) and stars Gael Garcia Bernal.

Are you a fan of Pinhead? Well, Hulu is set to bring out another Hellraiser film that I’ve heard through the grapevine is actually really good. Honestly, I am not 100% sold as I am not a fan of Pinhead, but I hope it exceeds my expectations.

Next. Are there plans for a third Hocus Pocus movie?. dark

What will you be watching this weekend? Will you enjoy a movie in theaters or streaming?

(His response: paranoid conspiracy theories about the enemy concocting fake news.) Was Onoda a self-deluded fanatic or a paragon of patriotism? Harari’s poignant, epic drama reveals the complexities of the man who became a modern myth – and the inspiration for Werner Herzog’s recently published novel, The Twilight World .

Are you ready to be blown away by the upcoming 'Twister' sequel? The first trailer for the Glen Powell film was revealed during the Super Bowl. Here's the latest updates on the movie.

Daisy Edgar Jones Glen Powell

Twister   was unlike anything movie theatergoers had seen before when it came out in 1996. The epic disaster movie, about a group of amateur storm chasers trying to deploy tornado research in Oklahoma, featured ground-breaking visual effects that wowed audiences. The film was a smash hit, grossing nearly $500 million worldwide, and scored two Academy Award nominations for Best Visual Effects and Best Sound.

It took over 25 years until it was finally announced that a long-awaited  sequel film , titled  Twisters , is coming out. Daisy Edgar-Jones, who rose to fame with her breakout role in Normal People , was the first major star attached to the sequel, and Top Gun: Maverick’s Glen Powell is joining the (turbulent) fun. The first trailer for the sequel came out during Super Bowl LVIII on February 11.

Twister  was a movie way ahead of its time, and the sequel is bound to blow audiences away when it arrives in theaters. Here’s everything you need to know about  Twisters , including the release date, the cast, and more.

Twister

Twister 2  Confirmed

Initial plans for a  Twister  reboot from Universal Pictures began back in June 2020. At the time,  Variety reported that  Top Gun: Maverick   director Joseph Kosinski was in talks to direct the film. Over two years later, in October 2022,  Deadline   reported that Universal Pictures and Steven Spielberg ‘s production company, Amblin Entertainment, were meeting with directors to get a start on the sequel, which was confirmed to be titled  Twisters  at that point. Spielberg, who was a producer on the first film, reportedly read the script for the sequel and helped get the project green-lit.

The  Twister  sequel was confirmed to be happening in December 2022, along with the release date announced. Lee Isaac Chung  was also announced as the director, per  Variety .

Release Date

Twisters  is scheduled to hit movie theaters on July 19, 2024. That’s almost 30 years since the original film came out on May 10, 1996. Filming on the sequel is slated to begin in early 2023 in Los Angeles, according to a report from MovieWeb .

Twister

Cast & Crew

Daisy Edgar-Jones

On April 14, 2023, Glen Powell confirmed reports that he would be starring in Twisters . He reposted articles and tweets about his casting on his Instagram and wrote, “I love a good chase.” Glen is coming off an incredible year where he was the breakout star of Top Gun: Maverick .

While Twister  was directed by Jan de Bont , the sequel will be helmed by Lee Isaac Chang . Lee is the recipient of two Academy Award nominations for directing and writing the 2020 movie  Minari .

She is lured back to the open plains by her friend, Javi to test a groundbreaking new tracking system. There, she crosses paths with Tyler Owens (Powell), the charming and reckless social-media superstar who thrives on posting his storm-chasing adventures with his raucous crew, the more dangerous the better. As storm season intensifies, terrifying phenomena never seen before are unleashed, and Kate, Tyler and their competing teams find themselves squarely in the paths of multiple storm systems converging over central Oklahoma in the fight of their lives.”

Everything to Know About Marvel's The Fantastic Four

Marvel recently announced the official cast list for 'The Fantastic Four'

Marvel is finally assembling the cast of The Fantastic Four . 

After many casting rumors and speculations, Disney confirmed the official cast list on Valentine’s Day with a fun graphic featuring Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm.

The upcoming Marvel movie has been in the works since 2019 when Disney first acquired the rights to the characters through their Fox deal. Marvel president Kevin Feige later confirmed the film during San Diego Comic-Con .

The new film will be the third movie adaptation of the Fantastic Four comic, following the 2005 film starring Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis and the 2015 film starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell. 

Marvel previously teased the introduction of the Fantastic Four in 2022 when John Krasinski played an alternate version of Reed Richards in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (who was quickly killed off). 

Here’s everything to know about the new Fantastic Four movie ahead. 

Who is in the cast of The Fantastic Four ?

On Valentine’s Day, Marvel officially announced the cast list for The Fantastic Four by sharing a cute graphic of the actors in characters. 

Pedro Pascal will lead the cast as Reed Richards, a.k.a. Mister Fantastic, the leader of the Fantastic Four. The rest of the superhero group includes Vanessa Kirby as Sue Storm, a.k.a. Invisible Woman; Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Ben Grimm, a.ka. the Thing; and Joseph Quinn as Johnny Storm, a.k.a. the Human Torch. 

What is The Fantastic Four about?

In the comics, the Fantastic Four centers around a group of astronauts who get exposed to cosmic rays in space and gain superhero abilities. 

Though Marvel hasn’t revealed the official tagline for the film, Feige previously teased that the movie would not center around how the Fantastic Four got their powers as previous iterations have. 

“A lot of people know this origin story. A lot of people know the basics. How do we take that and bring something that they’ve never seen before?” Feige said during San Diego Com-Con in 2022. Acknowledging that the superhero group launched the Marvel Comics universe back in 1961, he added, “We’ve set a very high bar for ourselves with bringing that to the screen.”

Who is directing The Fantastic Four ?

Matt Shakman, who previously worked on Disney+’s WandaVision series, is slated to direct the upcoming movie. 

While speaking with Collider in October 2023, Shakman gushed about working on the upcoming Marvel film, teasing it would be very “different” from past iterations. “We are doing things very differently from a story standpoint, from an approach to the filmmaking standpoint, that really fits the material,” he told the publication. “I think it's going to be unlike anything you've seen before, and certainly unlike anything at Marvel that you've seen before.” 

Who is writing The Fantastic Four ? 

Frederick M. Brown/Getty

In September 2022, Jeff Kaplan and Ian Springer were tapped to write the script, however, in March 2023, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Josh Friedman, who previously worked on Avatar: The Way of Water , would be reworking the script. 

When does filming begin? 

Per Variety , filming for the new movie is expected to begin by summer 2024. Shakman previously told Collider the movie would film in London at Pinewood Studios, where many other Marvel projects have been filmed, including The Marvels , Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and the Loki series. 

When will The Fantastic Four be released?

Prequel "A Quiet Place: Day One" (in theaters June 28) revisits the early days of that fan-favorite series, and you're getting two Shyamalans this year: M. Night has the thriller "Trap" (Aug. 2) and his daughter Ishana makes her directorial debut with creature feature "The Watchers" (June 7). And we've got the exclusive debut right here of the trailer for "Tarot" (May 10), about youngsters fated to die after playing with some sinister tarot cards.

But you don't need to be a fortune teller to know there's some eerie stuff on the way to theaters. Here are 10 fright fests you'll want to check out in the coming months:

'Lisa Frankenstein' (Feb. 9)

In the Tim Burton-esque horror comedy set in 1989, Lisa (Kathryn Newton) is an outcast who discovers a lightning storm has resurrected the corpse of a lovelorn Victorian dude (Cole Sprouse), and the two embark on a killer quest to fix him up with new body parts.

'Stopmotion' (Feb. 23)

Following the death of her overbearing mother, a stop-motion animator (Aisling Franciosi) creates macabre puppets for a new movie about a scared girl being hunted by a dark figure and is driven mad when the creepy characters come to terrifying life.

'Imaginary' (March 8)

DeWanda Wise stars as a woman who returns to her childhood home and realizes the imaginary friend she had back in the day is ticked off it got left behind, and now it's threatening her stepdaughter (Pyper Braun) in the form of an old teddy bear named Chauncey.

'Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire' (March 22)

Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson reprise their ghostbusting roles from the 1980s franchise – and even Slimer's back! Director Gil Kenan's latest installment finds the iconic firehouse and the rest of New York City iced over, paranormal style, courtesy of an evil force let loose by the discovery of an ancient artifact.

'Late Night With the Devil' (March 22)

On Halloween night 1977, fictional talk-show host Jack Delroy (David Dastmalchian) struggles in the ratings against Johnny Carson and just lost his wife so he needs a win. Jack brings on a parapsychologist (Laura Gordon) and a teen who survived a Satanic church's mass suicide to goose ratings but instead unleashes evil.

'The First Omen' (April 5)

In 1976, "The Omen" centered on a young boy as the son of Satan. The new prequel stars Nell Tiger Free as a young American woman sent to begin a life of service at a Roman church and her belief system is shaken to its core when she discovers the unholiest of conspiracies: to birth the Antichrist.

'Abigail' (April 19)

Melissa Barrera, Dan Stevens and Kathryn Newton star as criminals tasked to kidnap the ballerina daughter (Alisha Weir) of a wealthy underworld figure and keep an eye on her overnight at a mansion. The job goes awry for everyone when the girl reveals herself as a vampire and gleefully murders her captors one by one.

'Tarot' (May 10)

Avantika ("Mean Girls") and Jacob Batalon ("Spider-Man: Homecoming") are among the young stars in this horoscope horror. College friends pull a major no-no of tarot readings when they break the "never use someone else's deck" rule, receive seriously bad fortunes and then fight to escape the freaky fates doled out by the cursed cards.

'Nosferatu' (Dec. 25)

Directed by Robert Eggers ("The Witch"), the remake of the 1922 horror classic stars Lily-Rose Depp as a young woman who becomes the object of desire for a dangerous vampire (Bill Skarsgård). The gothic tale features a stellar cast including Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Willem Dafoe, Emma Corrin and Nicholas Hoult.

'Terrifier 3' (holiday season)

Director Damien Leone's last "Terrifier" went viral in 2022 with reports of audiences fainting and vomiting over the film's graphic violence and brutal kills . That's bad news for most movies but not a slasher series: Indie horror icon Art the Clown (David Howard Thornton), the demonic silent villain with the face paint and mini top hat, returns in the third film for Christmastime shenanigans.

10 Movies Like The Beekeeper to Watch Next

These thrilling action movies feature unstoppable heroes and will take you on a thrilling ride, much like The Beekeeper.

2024 has barely begun, and The Beekeeper may very well be on its way to becoming one of the year’s top action movies. It premiered on January 26 and has since been a trending topic on social media sites around the world. Much like other Jason Statham movies , it is a roller-coaster of entertainment that keeps viewers glued to their screens with its adrenaline-pumping stunts, intense gun fights, and gripping, revenge-driven plot. And, of course, Statham’s magnetic presence only adds to the film’s charm.

The Beekeeper is directed by David Ayer and tells the journey of Adam Clay (Statham), a former operative of "The Beekeeper," who embarks on a mission to avenge his neighbor's tragic suicide, who was a victim of a phishing scam. For those craving more adrenaline-pumping adventures with expertly choreographed stunts and unstoppable heroes at the center, here are some recommendations to keep the thrills coming.

10 Extraction (2020)

Extraction Poster

*Availability in US

Not available

Tyler Rake, a fearless black market mercenary, embarks on the most deadly extraction of his career when he's enlisted to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord.

Extraction is a high-octane action movie directed by Sam Hargrave and produced by Mike Larroca, Eric Gitter, Paul Schewrin, Chris Hemsworth, and the Russo Brothers, famed for their work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It stars Hemsworth as Tyler Rake, a black market mercenary and follows his mission to rescue the kidnapped son of an Indian crime lord.

How It’s Like The Beekeeper

Extraction is a thrilling ride from start to finish, guaranteed to keep viewers on the edge of their seats in the same way The Beekeeper did. From explosive action sequences to jaw-dropping stunts, the film delivers non-stop thrills. It also features that cinematic spectacle seen in The Beekeeper , featuring beautiful cinematography, well-crafted sets, and amazing performances that transport viewers into its adrenaline-pumping world. Stream on Netflix

9 John Wick (2014)

John Wick

Like Adam Clay in The Beekeeper , John Wick 's titular character is a force to be reckoned with, relentless in his pursuit and unstoppable in his mission, regardless of the overwhelming obstacles in his way. He’s ready to destroy everything and take down any adversary to exact his revenge. John Wick’s story begins with avenging his dead dog, which leads him to confront some of the toughest members of a deadly assassin organization.

Also a revenge-driven film , John Wick is pitted against numerous villains. The film features striking cinematography to complement the beautiful stunts. Both The Beekeeper and John Wick have their own strengths and are worthwhile additions to the action genre. Keanu Reeves is never-better as John Wick, just as Statham is as Adam Clay. Stream on Netflix

8 Nobody (2021)

Nobody

A docile family man slowly reveals his true character after his house gets burgled by two petty thieves, which, coincidentally, leads him into a bloody war with a Russian crime boss. Starring Bob Odenkirk and Christopher Lloyd.

Read Our Review

In Ilya Naishuller’s Nobody , Bob Odenkirk, known for his role as Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul , portrays Hutch Mansell, a seemingly ordinary family man with a secret past as a lethal former government operative. However, when two burglars break into their home, his violent instincts are unleashed.

Derek Kolstad, the writer of the John Wick series, uses some of the spice from the franchise to create a sharp, action-packed narrative centered on a likable yet vengeful hero not to be messed with. Odenkirk also delivers an impressive and surprising performance as the determined and tough character with a hidden past. With its well-paced story, bloody and intense fight scenes, thrilling chases, and high-stakes confrontations, fans of The Beekeeper will surely enjoy this film. Stream on Freevee

7 Ambulance (2022)

Ambulance 2022

Two robbers steal an ambulance after their heist goes awry. Jake Gyllenhaal stars in this new film from Michael Bay.

Michael Bay’s Ambulance stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as adoptive brothers Danny and Will, who team up to rob a Los Angeles bank to cover medical bills for Will’s wife. However, when their escape plan fails, they end up hijacking an ambulance with a paramedic (Eiza Gonzalez) and police officer inside to evade the law.

How It’s Like The Beekeper

Similarly to The Beekeeper , Ambulance offers action, suspense, and thrilling adventure. While it ventures into mindless action territory and may stretch believability, the film delivers everything that makes a Michael Bay action film : plot twists, car chases, big explosions, and physical and emotional conflicts that height the tension and excitement. There’s even some weird humor in this heist movie. Stream on Starz

6 Stone Cold (1991)

Brian Bosworth as Joe Huff, face bleeding in Stone Cold

Stone Cold offers another exciting ride with a bad-ass hero willing to take on a notorious biker gang. Brian Bosworth plays the rebellious and unconventional cop, Joe Huff, who is recruited by the FBI to go undercover and infiltrate a motorcycle gang known as “The Brotherhood”.

How It's Like The Beekeeper

While Stone Cold follows a formulaic action movie plot, it is undeniably entertaining. Bosworth delivers a charismatic performance as the rugged undercover cop, proving himself a true action star. William Forsythe and Lance Henrikisen also shine in their roles. Overall, the film is well-directed by Craig R. Braxley. And even though it seems illogical and over-the-top sometimes, it is quite satisfying to watch. Despite criticisms of clichés and cheesy one-liners, many consider this to be an underrated action flick. Not Currently Available to Stream or Purchase

5 Shoot ‘Em Up (2007)

Shoot 'Em Up

Shoot 'Em Up

If you love action movies with over-the-top action sequences, stylized violence, and dark humor, Shoot ‘Em Up is the movie for you. Directed by Michael Davis, the film follows a mysterious and skilled gunman who is determined to protect a newborn from an assortment of assailants.

Shoot ‘Em Up received mixed reviews upon its release, with some praising its inventive action scenes and Clive Owen's performance, while others criticized its thin plot and excessive violence. Nevertheless, the film truly shines by fully embracing its over-the-top nature. With a fast-paced plot filled with shootouts, fist-fighting, and a level of violence reminiscent of a video game , this film’s 86-minute runtime flies quite fast, leaving viewers eager for more. Rent on DIRECTV

4 The Transporter (2002)

the transporter

The Transporter

The Transporter is often hailed as one of the standout action films in Statham’s filmography. Directed by Corey Yuen, the movie stars Statham as Frank Martin, a skilled and enigmatic driver who transports goods with no questions asked. The Transporter has over four movies in the franchise that follow the thrilling and risky adventures of Frank Martin.

Like The Beekeeper, The Transporter was praised for its high-octane action sequences, including adrenaline-pumping car chases, hand-to-hand combat, and Statham’s charismatic performance as the reserved yet resourceful Frank Martin. The film’s sleek visuals, well-choreographed fight scenes, and fast-paced plot contribute to its reputation as an entertaining action flick. It may not be groundbreaking in terms of character development, but it has nonetheless become a fan favorite among action movie enthusiasts. Stream on Starz

3 Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning (2023)

Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part I

Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning

Undoubtedly, Mission: Impossible is one of the greatest action franchises in cinema history. It originated from a 1960s television series of the same name and has since captured people’s imaginations with its thrilling action sequences, intricate plot, and charismatic performances. Continuing the franchise’s legacy, the 2023 installment, Dead Reckoning , wowed audiences with yet another high-stakes plot focused on Ethan Hunt’s impossible missions.

Like other Mission: Impossible movies , this one offers a mix of breathtaking stunts, clever espionage, and intense action sequences, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats — like The Beekeeper also succeeds in doing. Tom Cruise’s dedication to performing his own stunts also adds an extra layer of excitement and authenticity to the film. Overall, the film is funny, action-packed, polished, and definitely deserves to be experienced on the largest screen possible. Stream on Paramount+

2 The Man from Nowhere (2010)

The Man from Nowhere

The Man from Nowhere

Often praised for its intense action sequences, emotional depth, and compelling performance by Won Bin in the lead role, this South Korean thriller is a top-tier action movie worth seeing after The Beekeeper . It follows Tae-Sik, a pawn shop owner embroiled in a deadly battle against ruthless drug dealers after his neighbor’s kidnapping. Like Adam Clay, this hero stops at nothing to accomplish his mission.

The Man from Nowhere is a brutal action film that tugs at heart strings with its deeply tragic story. While it may initially seem like other run-of-the-mill action movies, it carves its own identity with its unique narrative. With themes of revenge and stylish action akin to John Wick , it may have inspired the acclaimed series. Its knife combat scenes rank among the most gripping and visceral seen in action movies. Stream on Netflix

1 The Equalizer (2014)

The Equalizer

The Equalizer

Inspired by the 1980s television series of the same name, The Equalizer film series revolves around Robert McCall, a retired CIA black ops operative who seeks justice for those who have been wronged. Spanning from its inception in 2014 to its most recent installment in 2023, the series is known for its intense, thrilling and dark tones.

Generally, The Equalizer film series has the ability to captivate audiences with its intense thrills and gripping drama. Denzel Washington’s portrayal of Robert McCall adds depth and gravitas to the role, elevating the film beyond typical action fare. With heart-pounding hand-to-hand combat scenes to gun fights and tactical maneuvers, each delivers an exhilarating experience. For fans seeking action-packed movies with spectacular stunts and intense fight scenes as seen in The Beekeeper, The Equalizer is totally worth checking out. Stream on DIRECTV

The 10 Most Anticipated Sexy Movies of 2024

From Challengers to Love Lies Bleeding , discussions about sex onscreen are as fervid (and often as unreasonable) as they were in the early ‘90s.

preview for Challengers trailer (Warner Bros.)

Every product was carefully curated by an Esquire editor. We may earn a commission from these links.

Now, obviously, things are different. Online, it feels like discussions about sex onscreen are as fervid (and often as unreasonable) as they were in the early ‘90s. Often, it’s kicked off by a social media post declaring sex scenes pointless—or worse, a violation of consent—that multiple outlets have all weighed in, giving rise to discourse about the discourse. And yet Saltburn and Poor Things were two widely discussed films from 2023, due in no small part to their depictions of sex. Saltburn might not have gotten half the play that it did were it not for the kinky bathwater-drinking, grave-humping, and dick-out dancing by Barry Keoghan’s character, Oliver. Poor Things , which in part explores the pragmatic enjoyment of sex via a woman who hasn’t been socialized to be ashamed of her sexuality or body, has been nominated for 11 Academy Awards.

It’s a good time for sex in movies. As someone who thinks about sex a lot (I co-write Slate ’s " How To Do It " advice column) and pays close attention to matters of media representation, I eat all of this up. I am excited for creative approaches to sex on screen, both in terms of the act itself and the greater impact it has on characters’ cultures, dynamics, and personalities. I’m looking forward to the year ahead of sex in movies, and to kick off this year’s column, below is a preview of what to expect.

Drive-Away Dolls (February 23)

Ethan Coen’s first narrative feature he’s directing without his brother, Joel, has been kicking around since the mid-‘00s, when it was called Drive-Away Dykes and had Selma Blair, Holly Hunter, Christina Applegate, and Chloë Sevigny attached. Now, it has a more user-friendly name, but is still very much the lesbian road movie that Coen and co-writer Tricia Cooke (his wife) always intended it to be. In Drive-Away Dolls, Margaret Qualley, wielding an emphasized Southern accent, stars as the extremely sexually comfortable Jamie. She's a foil for her more buttoned-up lesbi-friend Marian (Geraldine Viswanathan), as they take a road trip from Philly to Tallahassee, Florida, while carrying… hot cargo. Criminals are trailing them, to boot. Expect copious copulation in the form of girl-on-girl oral, toy play, and more. If you thought Burn After Reading was horny, you’re in for a wild ride.

Mea Culpa (February 23)

At long last, the world gets to see Tyler Perry’s take on the erotic thriller. The auteur wrote and directed Mea Culpa , which Netflix is marketing as a “steamy thriller,” and its trailer has the hallmarks of golden-era erotic thrillers. Kelly Rowland is a defense attorney (of course) representing an artist ( Moonlight ’s Trevante Rhodes) accused of murdering his girlfriend (naturally), who says things like, "I’m the kind of man that likes to see pleasure on my woman’s face. Not pain.” (Sure, buddy.) Something that is also very vintage erotic thriller? A voiceover comparing human carnality to that of animals: “A snake is never violent when stalking their prey. It’s only when they get right into striking distance that they become very violent,” says one character. Check!

Dune: Part Two (March 1)

OK, so we can’t expect too much along the lines of sex from Denis Villeneuve’s follow-up to his code-cracking 2021 adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi masterpiece . But the second half of the book does contain a sort of spice orgy that’s part of the Water of Life ritual Lady Jessica undergoes. Some fans of the book are concerned: “ Dune Part 2 's Spice Orgy Is A Problem” reads a subheading in a Screen Rant piece about whether or not Villeneuve will remain faithful to the book while incorporating the all-important sex-party imagery.

Love Lies Bleeding (March 8)

Rose Glass’s follow up to 2019’s Saint Maud was a sensation at Sundance this year. It stars Kristen Stewart as a gym manager who falls for a female bodybuilder. Lots of gunfire and Ed Harris with a bald-on-top-long-on-the-sides hairdo follow. T he Telegraph deemed it “jaw-dropping” in its five-star review , while The Hollywood Reporter wrote that among its “passionate and intimate lesbian sex scenes” are depictions of “oral sex, brief toe-sucking and one encounter that finds Lou instructing Jackie to masturbate while she watches from inches away.” Sign us up!

Challengers (April 26)

Talk about making love mean something in tennis. The trailer for Luca Guadagnino’s racket romance depicts what seems to be the beginning of threesome between three characters: Tashi (Zendaya), Patrick (Josh O’Connor), and Art (Mike Faist). They sit in a line on a bed; she kisses Art, then Patrick, and then…? It seems like—but is unclear if—that’s a flashback. (Per MGM’s official summary , she eventually marries Art and he and Patrick face off on the court.) Also unclear: Whether this threesome will be MFM or MMF. Knowing Guadagnino, bet on the latter.

Housekeeping for Beginners (April 5)

The past two movies from Macedonian Australian writer-director Goran Stolevski, 2022’s You Won’t Be Alone and 2023’s Of an Age , have both featured pivotal and bold sex scenes. There’s no reason to believe that the chosen-family, cinéma vérité-esque drama Housekeeping for Beginners won’t do the same—it’s R-rated, in part for sexual content.

The Feeling That the Time for Doing Something Has Passed (April 26)

Joanna Arnow’s latest film did the festival circuit in 2023 and will open for general audiences later this year. Its protagonist Ann (Arnow) is a woman in a “ long-term casual BDSM relationship ,” the portrayal of which could go a long way in bringing kink without shame or stigma to moviegoing audiences.

Sebastian (TBA)

In the London-set Sebastian , via Finnish-British director Mikko Mäkelä, Ruaridh Mollica plays Max, a writer who turns tricks on the side. He does this mostly without pathos. Around the time of his movie’s Sundance premiere, Mäkelä told Variety that he wanted to “approach the topic of [sex work] becoming more common and continue to interrogate any lingering stigmas around it.” Practically speaking, Max exists in two modes: his writerly one, in which he uses his given name, and his sex-worker one, where he goes by Sebastian. The movie is explicit—Max is casually versatile with his trade—and Sebastian's laid-back approach to its subject is fresh.

Ponyboi (TBA)

Where Sebastian is casual, Ponyboi —another queer sex-worker movie that premiered at Sundance this year—is tense. The titular character (played by River Gallo) spends much of the film on the run in North Jersey, after a trick dies from smoking bad meth. Turns out, it was provided by Ponyboi’s pimp (and occasional sex partner), Vinny (Dylan O’Brien). It’s reminiscent of 2015’s Tangerine , though it looks much better (no iPhone cinematography here) and is deeply invested in Ponyboi’s interior, even if the character is somewhat ambivalent about what’s going on under the hood. “I don’t even know what I’m supposed to be anymore,” says Ponyboi, who, like Gallo (the mastermind of the project, according to an interview at Sundance with director Esteban Arango), is intersex. There’s a lot going on in this one, but its frenetic pacing ensures this is no chore to endure.

Last Summer (TBA)

It would be crude and unfair to say that Catherine Breillat’s drama is the French arthouse equivalent of stepmom/MILF porn, but Last Summer touches on the taboos and morality questions inherent in that particular (yet popular) pornographic subgenre. This remake of the 2019 Danish film Queen of Hearts finds Anne (Léa Drucker) drawn to the 17-year-old son her husband had in a previous marriage. Mess ensues. of course, but it’s rather mannered and tasteful mess!

The Rest of 2024

a person wearing a black dress

There are, of course, many other movies set to be released that could have enticing sexual elements of sex in them, but too little is known about them currently. The third part of Ti West’s Mia Goth-starring X trilogy, MaXXXine , is expected this year—the early teaser suggested its porn-starring protagonist may be entering her VHS era, though a report from a screening suggested it is “homage to Dario Argento and the sub-genre of giallo,” and compared it to Lucio Fulci’s roughie The New York Ripper . Robert Eggers is trying his hand at Nosferatu (due out by the end of the year), which is almost certain to contain vampiric lust. And will Todd Phillips continue pushing the envelope in Joker: Folie à Deux by staging sex between Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and Lady Gaga’s (rumored) Harley Quinn? Anyone down for some clown-on-clown action?

Zone of Interest Movie Online Release Date Revealed: When Will It Start Streaming?

The Zone of Interest movie

A24's The Zone of Interest had its online release date confirmed, hinting at when the movie will eventually come to streaming. 

The Jonathan Glazer-directed wartime drama has been described as one of the more harrowing films of 2023, following a Nazi commandant and his family as they move to live outside the Auschwitz concentration camp. 

The film was an incredible critical success upon its release in December, racking up five Oscar nominations including Best Director and Best Picture. 

[ Where to Watch The Zone of Interest Movie - Streaming and Theater Details ]

The Zone of Interest Is Heading Home

The official online release date for The Zone of Interest has finally been confirmed. 

According to WhenToStream on X (formerly Twitter), the A24 drama will hit digital storefronts on Tuesday, February 20.

One can assume this is to get the movie out in front of the 96th Academy Awards (which air on Sunday, March 10), as voting for the awards ends mere days later on Tuesday, February 22. 

This marks a 67-day theatrical-to-digital window, which is about standard for A24 films of late. 

Aside from Ti West's Pearl (which came to digital a mere 39 days after theaters), A24 has been sticking around that 60-day timing before bringing its films to digital. 

Recent hits from the studio like Aftersun and Beau Is Afraid came in on the lower end of that scale both hitting exactly 60 days between their big-screen and digital debuts. 

The Oscar-winning The Whale took a little longer, getting its digital release 74 days after hitting theaters in late 2023. 

Here is a list of other recent A24 films and their theatrical-to-digital windows:

  • Pearl : September 16, 2022 - October 25, 2022 (39 days)
  • Aftersun : October 21, 2022 - December 20, 2022 (60 days)
  • The Whale : December 9, 2022 - February 21, 2023 (74 days)
  • Beau Is Afraid : April 14, 2023 - June 13, 2023 (60 days)

When and Where Will The Zone of Interest Be Streaming?

As The Zone of Interest lays out its digital release plans, fans will most definitely turn their focus to when the A24 drama will come to streaming. 

No official streaming release has been laid out for the film specifically.

Traditionally, A24 has leaned on the longer side when it comes to its streaming releases; however, given a recent deal between A24 and Warner Bros. , any sort of past precedent from the studio can be thrown to the wind.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter in December, A24 and Warner struck a deal to make Max the official streaming home of the studio's films. 

While this deal is in its early stages, with not many (if any) films to go on to find any sort of precedent indicating when The Zone of Interest might come to the service, there is one movie fans can go off of. 

The first film as a part of the new Warner-A24 deal is Sofia Coppola's Priscilla . 

After hitting theaters on October 27, Priscilla will come to Max 119 days later on February 23. 

If Zone of Interest follows a similar streaming journey, then Max subscribers can expect the film to hit the service sometime around Friday, April 12. 

Given there is only one movie to go off of, take this Zone of Interest prediction with a grain of salt.

But with other recent A24 films like The Iron Claw also coming to Max - with a currently unknown streaming release date - a pattern may begin to emerge as the year goes on. 

The Zone of Interest comes to digital on Tuesday, February 20.

MOANA, Moana (voice: Auli'i Cravalho), 2016. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures / courtesy Everett Collection

The line where the sky meets the sea is calling Moana once again. Disney announced a sequel to “Moana,” which will be released theatrically on Nov. 27.

The company’s CEO Bob Iger revealed the news on CNBC ahead of Disney’s first quarter of fiscal 2024 earnings report. The second “Moana” was originally developed as a TV series but became a feature film because Iger was impressed with the footage.

“’Moana’ remains an incredibly popular franchise,” Iger said in a statement. “We can’t wait to give you more of Moana and Maui when ‘Moana 2’ comes to theaters this November.”

Dave Derrick Jr. is directing the sequel, with music from the duo of Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear, as well as Opetaia Foa’i and Mark Mancina, who worked on the first film. Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote “How Far I’ll Go” and “You’re Welcome,” isn’t expected to return with new songs for the follow-up.

“Moana” became a success for Disney, generating more than $680 million at the box office. The animated musical found renewed life on Disney+ with 1 billion hours streamed last year.

Iger’s decision to put “Moana 2” in theaters follows Disney’s rough 2023 at the box office. Disney Animation’s “Wish” joined a long line of misfires, including “The Marvels,” “Haunted Mansion” and “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.” Pixar’s “Elemental” struggled to start but ultimately rebounded with $496 million globally.

“Moana 2” is separate from the studio’s live-action remake, which is currently in the works with Dwayne Johnson back as the tattooed demigod Maui. Auli’i Cravalho, who voiced Moana in the 2016 film, is expected to reprise her role in the animated sequel.

Wilton Mall movie theater to reopen

W ILTON MALL, N.Y. ( NEWS10 ) — The movie theater in the Wilton Mall, which has been closed since the COVID-19 pandemic, is set to reopen. Scene One Entertainment, formerly known as Bow Tie Management, is reopening the theater.

“We’re thrilled to add the Wilton Mall Cinemas back ‘to the family.’ It first opened on my birthday in 2013, so this one holds a special meaning for me,” said Joe Masher, owner and CEO of Scene One Entertainment. “The theater is in fantastic shape and the mall has maintained it beautifully since its pandemic closure.”

The movie theater opened in October 2013 by Bow Tie Cinemas before closing in 2020. The Wilton Mall Cinemas will have eight screens, Dolby Digital surround sound, leather rocking chairs, concessions, and a private party room.

“Scene One Cinemas fulfills one of the most-requested uses from guests and brings the former theater space in the Food Court back to life,” said Wilton Mall General Manager Mike Shaffer. “It’s just one more element in our ongoing, thoughtful redevelopment that makes Wilton Mall a great place for people to live, work and play.”

Scene One Entertainment also operates Scene One Movieland (formerly Movieland 6) in Schenectady and owns Huck Finn’s Playland in Albany. The Wilton Mall Cinemas are expected to open in February.
