VULTURE: 18 Movies We Can’t Wait to See This Fall Prepare thyself for vampire fascists, demonic crime lords, and a trip to the chocolate factory.
August 21, 2023
Around here, the Venice Film Festival marks the start of the fall movie season. Stars will glide in on gondolas and unveil some of this year’s most promising titles, including new movies from some of our favorite directors — Sofia Coppola (Priscilla), David Fincher (The Killer), Michael Mann (Ferrari), and Pablo Larraín (El Conde) among them. Most will hit U.S. theaters in the weeks and months to come alongside the likes of Killers of the Flower Moon, Dune 2, and Ridley Scott’s take on Napoleon. Strap in for awards season, in other words, though this fall is packing more than just statue bait. Did you know we’re now up to ten Saw movies? Ten! A24, meanwhile, has made its first musical: Dicks: The Musical, which until recently we’d been calling F**king Identical Twins. And Harmony Korine will surely bamboozle us all with Aggro Dr1ft, a film shot all in infrared(?) and at least partly preoccupied with demonic crime lords and swords(??). There’s too much weird and great and silly stuff coming to squeeze into one paragraph. So we’ll let Vulture’s esteemed movies writers guide you from here...
