Films For October

Gone Girl 

I have been excited about this for a really long time and this highly anticipated adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel does not disappoint. It cannot fault it. Ben Affleck stars as Nick Dunne, who discovers his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) is missing and he is the prime suspect. Did he do it? Check out my review here. Released: 3rd October

The Maze Runner

Dylan O’Brien stars as Thomas, a teenage boy who has lost his memory and wakes up in an elevator. When the elevator reaches the top, he finds himself inside The Glade,  a camp filled with young boys trying to find a way out by running the surrounding maze. However, the maze walls constantly move and are filled with deadly Grievers. All hell breaks loose when a girl arrives in the camp. How can they escape? A new tale to the young adult fold. Released: 10th October

The Judge

Robert Downey Jr. stars as a successful lawyer who heads home for his mother’s funeral and discovers that his father (Robert Duvall) is suspected of murder. Despite their fraught relationship, he defends him when the case goes to trial. This looks like an interesting drama. Released: 17th October

Love, Rosie

This is essentially a ‘can a girl and boy be best friends’ type situation but it looks so good. Lily Collins and Sam Claflin have been best friends since they were five and have been through many life events together but things finally come to a head when he moves to the US for university and she falls pregnant with someone else’s baby. Do they make it happen? I’m sure we know the answer but I’ll love the journey regardless. Released: 22nd October

This Is Where I Leave You

This looks like a great ensemble piece featuring the likes of Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Jason Bateman and Adam Driver. The family all return home for their father’s funeral and are grounded for a week out of respect of his final wishes. Comedy ensues as the siblings and mother vent their issues and long-standing resentments. Released: 24th October

Horns

This looks like Daniel Radcliffe’s weirdest post-Potter outing yet. In this dark thriller, he plays Ig, who has been accused of rape and the murder of his girlfriend. One day he wakes up with protrusions sticking out his head and the ability to get people to confess their darkest secrets. Released: 29th October

Nightcrawler

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a man working as a freelance reporter. He pursues stories and provides video footage of gritty, dirty crimes to TV stations. However, he soon gets in trouble with them unsavoury types. I’m very intrigued by this thriller. Released: 31st October
