Most Anticipated Films: Fall/Winter 2015

September is here and now the really great, adult oriented and exciting films of the year will be released. The ones by the top-tier talent and ones that will be pushed during the awards season. The festivals — Telluride, Venice, Toronto, New York, London and AFI — will be the center of the film world and then, in early December, the awards begin. Yes, this is the best time of the year for film lovers like myself. Not because of the awards, but because of the high-caliber of films being released. Four months of the goods and there are quite a few big films coming out.

We will get films from last year’s Oscar-winning Best Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu,  David O. Russell, Quentin Tarantino, J.J. Abrams, Todd Haynes, Oliver Stone, Steven Spielberg and Guillermo del Toro, just to name a few. The festivals will push some of these films forward and others will fall backwards, but I will try to not let the negative or positive reviews sway my desire to see them all. Some people love going to the movies during the summer blockbuster season, but not me. This is the best time of the year. I have compiled a list of films I am highly interested in seeing and instead of doing a top ten, this will just be a fulfilled, well-thought out list of the many films I am looking forward to throughout the rest of the year. Why relegate it to just ten. I assembled them by release month, but  easily the film that has the highest intrigue, craziest production and the best trailer of the year so far, is Iñárritu’s The Revenant. It stands far above all the rest. Enjoy and get out there and see these films!!!

On a side note, if Martin Scorsese’s Silence and the Coen brothers Hail, Caesar!, which already has a release date of February 5, 2016, get pushed into 2015, they are easily on this list.
