Top Films for October

I don’t know how September has been and gone already but here we are at October, which means it’s once again time to look ahead at the releases coming to cinemas this month.

Judy

Renee Zellweger has been receiving Oscars buzz for her portrayal of Judy Garland in this biopic, which follows her disastrous run of shows at London’s Talk of the Town nightclub several months before her death in 1969. I need to see this performance! In cinemas now

Joker

Joker has been hitting all the headlines recently and you can see what all the fuss is about this Friday. Joaquin Phoenix should get an Oscar nomination for his work in Todd Phillips’ movie, which charts how the mentally ill failed comedian Arthur Fleck becomes the iconic Batman villain. You can read my review here. Released: 4th October

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Angelina Jolie‘s back on the big screen! She’s playing Disney villain Maleficent once again while Elle Fanning is back as Aurora. This time they’re joined by Michelle Pfeiffer who plays Aurora’s future mother-in-law and the main antagonist. Released: 18th October

 

Official Secrets

I love true stories about remarkable people and this totally falls under that category. Keira Knightley plays GCHQ employee Katharine Gun, who receives a memo asking staffers to gain information to help the US blackmail certain countries into voting for the Iraq War. She leaks this memo to the press and has to suffer the consequences. Released: 18th October

Zombieland: Double Tap

I love the original Zombieland and I’m so excited that the original foursome of Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin are back and joined by my fave Zoey Deutch. The plot is quite vague – it just follows them dealing with evolved zombies and tensions within their makeshift family – but I’m sure it will be hilarious. Released: 18th October

Terminator: Dark Fate

This could be totally rubbish but I’m really excited to see Linda Hamilton back as Sarah Connor and Mackenzie Davis kicking ass in her first action role. She plays a hybrid cyborg human who teams up with Sarah to protect a young girl from a newly modified Terminator from the future. Arnie is also back! Released: 23rd October

Doctor Sleep

This adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining sequel stars Ewan McGregor as a now-adult Danny Torrance, a man with psychic powers whose peace is shattered when he encounters a teenager with a similar gift. Spooky stuff. Released: 31st October
