Laura Vandervoort in Jigsaw (2017)

Jigsaw | U.S. Release Date: October 27

The Plot: Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one man: John Kramer. But how can this be? The man known as Jigsaw has been dead for over a decade.

The Buzz: Seven years after Saw 3D: The Final Chapter, the franchise is being "reinvented" with a new story line, characters and a new "Saw for 2017" approach as directors Michael and Peter Spierig look to tone down the viciousness and up the fun, while keeping the gore that fans have come to expect.

Julianne Moore and Matt Damon in Suburbicon (2017)

Suburbicon | U.S. Release Date: October 27

The Plot: Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns — the perfect place to raise a family. In the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) must navigate the town's dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence.

The Buzz: We have to wonder if the highly neurotic trailers for George Clooney's latest offering as a director will appeal or repel audiences who might otherwise be attracted to whatever Clooney has crafted this time with the Coen Bros. (who wrote the script) and BFF Matt Damon.

Miles Teller and Haley Bennett in Thank You for Your Service (2017)

Thank You for Your Service | U.S. Release Date: October 27

The Plot: A group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq struggles to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they've left the battlefield.

The Buzz: Miles Teller will certainly turn heads with his portrayal of a soldier torn to pieces by his own internal struggles and will help to reignite a broad conversation about the domestic implications of war abroad. But the most eye-catching performances here will be from Haley Bennett, who takes on a character wildly divergent from her role in The Girl on the Train, and Amy Schumer, who doesn't need much screen time to make a big emotional impact.

All I See Is You | U.S. Release Date: October 27

The Plot: A blind woman's relationship with her husband changes when she regains her sight and discovers disturbing details about their marriage.

The Buzz: Directed Marc Forster, this romantic thriller made its debut at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival to mixed reviews. However, critics did agree that lead Blake Lively delivers a strong performance as a blind woman trying to navigate the world after she regains her sight.

Colin Farrell in The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)

The Killing of a Sacred Deer | U.S. Release Date: October 27

The Plot: This psychological horror centers on a charismatic surgeon who is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behavior of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister.

The Buzz: The film polarized critics when it debuted at Cannes, and was described as "a disturbing melodrama with shades of thriller and even horror." It went on to win the best screenplay prize at the festival, with Nicole Kidman's performance opposite Colin Farrell singled out for particular praise. But this does not look like a film for the feint of heart.

Margaret Qualley in Novitiate (2017)

Novitiate | U.S. Release Date: October 27

The Plot: Set in the early 1960s and during the era of Vatican II, a young woman in training to become a nun struggles with issues of faith, the changing church and sexuality.

The Buzz: A first-time feature from Margaret Betts, Novitiate is graced with a strong cast of women that includes Margaret Qualley, Melissa Leo, Morgan Saylor, Dianna Agron, and Liana Liberato. Set at a critical turning point in the history of the Catholic Church, elements of drama spice up a story that might otherwise have become a religious procedural.

Terry Notary in The Square (2017)

The Square | U.S. Release Date: October 27

The Plot: A poignant satirical drama reflecting our times — about the sense of community, moral courage and the affluent person's need for egocentricity in an increasingly uncertain world.

The Buzz: The latest film from award-winning director Ruben Östlund, this Swedish drama won the Palme d'Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and was also chosen as Sweden's official 2018 Oscar entry for Best Foreign Language Film.

A Bad Moms Christmas | U.S. Release Date: November 3

The Plot: Amy, Carla, and Kiki decide to rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. And if creating a more perfect holiday for their families wasn't hard enough, they have to do all of that while hosting and entertaining their own mothers.

The Buzz: Is it rational to hope that this sequel to the breakout hit Bad Moms will become the kind of holiday movie we watch alongside The Addams Family and The Ref?

Jeff Goldblum, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Mark Ruffalo, Karl Urban, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson in Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Thor: Ragnarok | U.S. Release Date: November 3

The Plot: Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

The Buzz: Taika Waititi brings his quirky humor, his indie sensibility, and Oscar-winning Cate Blanchett to the Thor franchise. If the record-breaking teaser trailer (136 million views in 24 hours) is anything to go by, this could be the biggest Thor film to date.

Last Flag Flying | U.S. Release Date: November 3

The Buzz: Last Flag Flying is the latest from Richard Linklater. Last Flag Flying is the sequel to The Last Detail, and both movies are based on novels of the same name by Darryl Ponicsan. Ponicsan and Linklater co-wrote the screenplay, and Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne star. Carell, Cranston and Fishburne portray older versions of the characters in The Last Detail by Randy Quaid, Jack Nicholson, and the late Otis Young.

Denzel Washington in Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017)

Roman J Israel, Esq. | U.S. Release Date: November 3

The Plot: When defense attorney Roman J Israel is called upon to serve in a higher profile role at his prestigious L.A. firm, he soon learns about the company's nefarious practices, ultimately causing him to take extreme action to set things right.

The Buzz: We'll be amazed if this legal thriller doesn't undergo yet another title change because Roman J Israel, Esq. is a seriously hard-to-market concept, but the white-hot script in the hands of Dan Gilroy and Denzel Washington could become one of the winter season's breakout hits — even if Denzel is looking his frumpiest as a lawyer turned action hero.

Woody Harrelson in LBJ (2016)

LBJ | U.S. Release Date: November 3

The Plot: LBJ centers on the political upheaval that Vice President Johnson faced when he was thrust into the presidency at the hands of an assassin's bullet in November 1963. With political battles on both sides of the aisle, Johnson struggles to heal a nation and secure his presidency by passing Kennedy's historic Civil Rights Act.

The Plot: Based on the classic Agatha Christie novel, what starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into a mystery in which 13 strangers become stranded on a train, and everyone’s a suspect.

The Buzz: Kenneth Branagh directs this thriller and stars as detective Hercule Poirot, sporting a grand moustache that seems to be a character of its own. The all-star cast, that includes Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, and Dame Judi Dench among others, could ensure a strong turnout for this classic mystery.

The Plot: Father Dusty and stepfather Brad have joined forces to provide their kids with the perfect Christmas. Their newfound partnership is put to the test when Dusty's old-school, macho Dad and Brad's ultra-affectionate and emotional Dad arrive just in time to throw the holiday into complete chaos.

The Buzz: A blended family Christmas gets a little more complicated and over the top with two disparate grandfather figures. John Lithgow plays Will Ferrell's similarly quirky dad, while Mel Gibson plays a fitting father to Mark Wahlberg's character, even if he's only 15 years older than him in real life.

Frances McDormand in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri | U.S. Release Date: November 10

The Plot: After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town's revered chief of police.

The Buzz: The latest film from Academy Award-winning director Martin McDonagh, Three Billboards ... has a powerhouse cast including Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, and Peter Dinklage. The film is making its rounds on the festival circuit and will likely be a strong contender for awards season.

Justice League | U.S. Release Date: November 17

The Plot: Batman and Wonder Woman recruit a team superheroes to save the world from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

The Buzz: This superhero epic has been dogged by rumors of trouble almost since inception. But the introduction of Avengers director Joss Whedon to help finish the film, and the blockbuster success of Wonder Woman has given fresh hope to the film, and could provide the boost needed for the DC Extended Universe.

Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Izabela Vidovic, and Jacob Tremblay in Wonder (2017)

Wonder | U.S. Release Date: November 17

The Plot: August Pullman, a young boy with facial disfigurement, is about to enter fifth grade at his first ever mainstream school.

The Buzz: For anyone of a certain age, this drama will be inextricably linked to their relationship with the movie Mask. For younger generations, it would be appear to be a new rallying cry against bullying and otherness. The not-so-secret weapon here is writer/director Stephen Chbosky, who notched a permanent young adult victory with his adaptation of his own work, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Zachary Levi, Keegan-Michael Key, Gina Rodriguez, Steven Yeun, and Aidy Bryant in The Star (2017)

The Star | U.S. Release Date: November 17

The Plot: A small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill.

Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become unlikely heroes in the story of the first Christmas.

The Buzz: Kickstart the holiday season with this animated retelling of a classic Biblical story ... from the point of view of donkey. The voice cast boasts a diverse group of stars from movies and TV, including Oprah Winfrey, Gina Rodriguez, Zachary Levi, Keegan-Michael Key, and Tyler Perry among others.

Anthony Gonzalez in Coco (2017)

Coco | U.S. Release Date: November 22

The Plot: An aspiring singer and self-taught guitarist who dreams of following in the footsteps of the most famous musician in the history of Mexico, Miguel teams up with a scrappy, streetwise skeleton on an extraordinary journey through the Land of the Dead.

The Buzz: Anticipation is high for Pixar's first non-sequel since 2015. Much of the buzz centers around the creative team: The movie is helmed by Lee Unkrich, whose bona fides include Finding Nemo and Toy Story 3. But the big story around this movie is the thematic material. Coco delves deeply into Mexican culture and traditions. Pixar went to great lengths to ensure authenticity and accuracy: from hiring an all-Latino cast to securing consultants to sweat all the details, such as the incidental music and the architectural elements of the Land of the Dead. Disney-Pixar is pulling out all the stops: Olaf's Frozen Adventure is the short that will play before Coco in theaters.

Death Wish (2018)

Death Wish | U.S. Release Date: November 22

The Plot: A mild-mannered father is transformed into a killing machine after his family is torn apart by a violent act.

The Buzz: Eli Roth's contempotary take on the iconic Charles Bronson character, family man turned vigilante Paul Kersey, already has certain people stirred up, saying the director is projecting an "alt-right fantasy." To others, it might look like the B movie of the winter season?

Idris Elba and Jessica Chastain in Molly's Game (2017)

Molly's Game | U.S. Release Date: November 22

The Plot: The true story of Molly Bloom a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested by the FBI.

The Buzz: We love movies like this — seductive thrillers that feel like Vanity Fair feature articles come to life, and sense that the pairing of Aaron Sorkin and Jessica Chastain could make for one wicked, adult-oriented caper.

Gary Oldman in Darkest Hour (2017)

Darkest Hour | U.S. Release Date: November 22

The Plot: Within days of becoming Prime Minister, Winston Churchill must face his most turbulent and defining trial: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation.

The Buzz: Stop and realize for a moment that Gary Oldman has only been nominated for an Oscar once in his career; it was five years ago for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. He's essentially a lock for a nomination this year in a picture that looks to be a return to solid form for director Joe Wright.

Michael Stuhlbarg, Armie Hammer, and Timothée Chalamet in Call Me by Your Name (2017)

Call Me by Your Name | U.S. Release Date: November 24

The Plot: Summer of 1983, Northern Italy. An American-Italian is enamored by an American student who comes to study and live with his family. Together they share an unforgettable summer full of music, food, and romance that will forever change them.

The Buzz: There's a dialogue-free shot in this trailer where Timothée Chalamet is upset and his mother, played by Amira Casar, consoles him — one hand running through his hair, the other on the steering wheel of her car, holding a lit cigarette. It's this moment, which we're imagining comes near the end of the movie where Chalamet's character, a well-educated and worldly young man who is going through his first heartbreak, that devastates us. It's also one of many reasons that Luca Guadagnino's latest film might be at the top of our personal fall movie list.

Polaroid (2017)

Polaroid | U.S. Release Date: December 1

The Plot: High school loner Bird Fitcher has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the mysterious Polaroid vintage camera she stumbles upon, but it doesn't take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic end.

The Buzz: Polaroid is based off a short story and award-winning 14-minute short film by Norwegian director Lars Klevberg, who also helms the American feature-length remake. The terrifying Javier Botet, best known for playing the monsters in Mama, Insidious, [Rec], The Conjuring 2, and the upcoming Slender Man is cast in an unnamed role, which immediately makes Polaroid that much scarier.

James Franco in The Disaster Artist (2017)

The Disaster Artist | U.S. Release Date: December 1

The Plot: The true story behind the making of The Room, a film described as the Citizen Kane of bad movies, which has become a cult phenomenon and made filmmaker Tommy Wiseau an underground star.

The Buzz: The first look at this film generated a huge response from IMDb's Facebook followers, perhaps proving it has a draw outside simply those who know the cult original. Stars James Franco and Seth Rogen also prove a draw, and reviews out of SXSW, where the film debuted, hailed Franco's performance as his best since 127 Hours.

Justin Timberlake in Wonder Wheel (2017)

Wonder Wheel | U.S. Release Date: December 1

The Plot: On Coney Island in the 1950s, a lifeguard tells the story of a middle-aged carousel operator and his beleaguered wife.

The Buzz: With a voter-friendly release date, this film will position both Woody Allen and star Kate Winslet as serious contenders for awards season. Additionally, the movie, the first to be fully distributed by Amazon Studios, will premiere as the closing-night film of the New York Film Festival. Wonder Wheel will serve up plenty for critics and fans to enjoy, not the least of which are cinematography by three-time Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro and 1950s-era lifeguarding by 10-time Grammy winner Justin Timberlake.

Doug Jones and Sally Hawkins in The Shape of Water (2017)

The Shape of Water | U.S. Release Date: December 8

The Plot: An other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa's life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

The Buzz: Everything about Guillermo del Toro’s passion project has got us excited: Doug Jones' return to embodying del Toro’s otherworldly beings, a fairy tale in an unlikely setting of a 1963 government-research laboratory, and the stellar cast that includes Michael Shannon, Sally Hawkins, and Octavia Spencer. The film is already gearing up for awards, having been selected to be screened in the main competition section of the 74th Venice International Film Festival.

All the Money in the World | U.S. Release Date: December 8

The Plot: The story of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, the heir to the Getty oil fortune, and his mother’s desperate attempt to get the cash for the ransom.

The Buzz: All we know about Ridley Scott's latest is that the director, like Steven Spielberg, is speeding through post-production to get the picture ready for awards season. We also hear the dynamics of Michelle Williams' character, Gail Harris, could put her in Oscar contention.

Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley in Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi | U.S. Release Date: December 15

The Plot: Having taken her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey continues her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the saga.

The Buzz: After The Force Awakens provided a new hope for fans of the Star Wars universe, this next chapter in the Skywalker saga needs to deliver on that promise. Shrouded in mystery, it looks to take a more bleak turn as Luke declares: "It's time for the Jedi to end." The film will also mark beloved star Carrie Fisher's final appearance in the series.

John Cena in Ferdinand (2017)

Ferdinand | U.S. Release Date: December 15

The Plot: After Ferdinand, a bull with a big heart, is mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure.

The Buzz: Walt Disney created an Oscar-winning animated short version of author Munro Leaf's flower-loving, pacifist bull back in 1938 (a mere two years after Leaf's book was published). In the ensuing years there have been so few adaptations of the character, it's a bit jarring for long-time fans to see him in computer-generated animated form. Hopefully everything Ferdinand stands for won't get lost in this particular translation?

Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, and Nick Jonas in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

Bastards | U.S. Release Date: December 22

The Plot: Two brothers, raised to believe their biological father died, find out their mother slept with many powerful and famous men in the 1970s, and the siblings hit the road to find their real father.

The Buzz: Justin Malen's script has been on the Black List (an industry countdown of the top-rated unproduced screenplays) since 2011, when Hollywood was snatching up R-rated comedies in hopes of finding the next Hangover-sized hit.

Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig in Downsizing (2017)

Downsizing | U.S. Release Date: December 22

The Plot: A couple signs up for a radical new procedure where they will shrunken to four inches tall so they can have a better lifestyle and be more eco-conscious at the same time.

The Buzz: Like Nebraska, Downsizing is one of Alexander Payne's projects that he's slowly developed over time, and it's the first time he's flirted with the sci-fi genre, one of many reasons audiences are breathless to see mini Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig navigate Payne's utopia. We've seen scenes from the movie and were left speechless in the best sense of the term.

Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Hana Mae Lee, Chrissie Fit, Hailee Steinfeld, Ester Dean, and Shelley Regner in Pitch Perfect 3 (2017)

Pitch Perfect 3 | U.S. Release Date: December 22

The Plot: On a hiatus after the A Capella World Tournament, the Bellas reunite for one last singing competition: A USO tournament with both bands and a cappella groups.

The Buzz: We're 99% sure this is the last time you'll see Anna Kendrick in Bella-mode, and 100% sure the Pitch Perfect franchise will be spun-off or rebooted within a few years — with or without Hailee Steinfeld. Until then, we're liking the fact that the end of the trilogy finds them entertaining the troops instead of, say, on a reality competition show.

Tom Hanks in The Post (2017)

The Post | U.S. Release Date: December 22

The Plot: A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country's first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between journalist and government.

The Buzz: Steven Spielberg has sped through production to get his latest, a look at how the Washington Post won a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that allowed the outlet to continue reporting on the Pentagon Papers, an account of the country's long involvement in Vietnam/Indochina. Reportedly the film has an All the President's Men feel to it, right down to Tom Hanks portraying Ben Bradlee, the Post editor played by Oscar-winner Jason Robards in AtPM.

The Current War | U.S. Release Date: December 22

The Plot: Electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse compete to create a sustainable system and market it to the American public.

Happy End | U.S. Release Date: December 22

The Plot: The lifeless business and personal affairs of the affluent Laurent family, who own and operate a successful construction and transport company, are seen through the eyes of Ève, the youngest member of the clan.

The Buzz: More than one critic has offered that Michael Haneke's latest movie acts as a sequel to Amour in that it slowly tracks the hopeless interpersonal dynamics between family members with a teasing, masterful hand. Fanzine Harduin, who plays 13-year-old Éve, is said to turn in a noteworthy performance.

Daniel Day-Lewis in Phantom Thread (2017)

Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Project | U.S. Release Date: December 25

The Plot: Set in the fashion world of 1950s London, a dressmaker is commissioned to design for members of high society and the royal family.

The Buzz: For now, we can consider this to be Daniel Day-Lewis' last role since the three-time Oscar winner has claimed this will be his final appearance on the silver screen. If this turns out to be true, thankfully he's decided that Paul Thomas Anderson will be the last person to direct him, since they made lasting impression together in There Will Be Blood a decade ago.

Hugh Jackman and Keala Settle in The Greatest Showman (2017)

The Greatest Showman | U.S. Release Date: December 27

The Plot: Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is a musical that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

The Buzz: Hugh Jackman is no stranger to origin stories or the musical genre, and the feather-light touch that seems to be in play here could result in one of those unstoppably popular holiday releases that continues Jackman's high-functioning relationship with 20th Century Fox.
