Fall Movie Preview and Most Anticipated Films 2021

While this past summer saw a deluge of blockbuster movies, that’s nothing compared to the films in store for audiences this fall. Long-awaited tentpoles like No Time to Die, Dune, and countless others will hit the silver screen after many delays. On top of those films, we’ll start to get into the early days of awards fare. If you thought summer was crazy, well, you frankly haven’t seen anything yet. 

Even though the Delta variant continues to surge, audiences have shown they’re willing to show up and show out for actual theatrical releases if the conditions feel safe. So, if you’re up to it, make sure to head to your local theater chain with your favorite snack and drink to watch these movies on the biggest screen possible. From The Guilty to Nightmare Alley, these are the 20 most anticipated movies of fall 2021.

Genre: Action, Spy

Release date: Oct. 8

After several delays, No Time to Die, the much-anticipated final outing for the Daniel Craig era of James Bond, will arrive in early October. Picking up after the events of Spectre, Bond is reluctantly pulled back into the fold to help fight against a new global threat posed by Rami Malek’s villainous Safin. In addition to serving as Craig’s last turn as Bond, No Time to Die marks the 25th overall installment in the Bond franchise.

While we’re particularly eager to see how the story of Craig’s Bond will conclude, we’re just as excited about the talent behind the camera as well. True Detective and Beasts of No Nation director Cary Joji Fukunaga will lend his mastery to the lens, working off a script he wrote with Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and Fleabag’s Phoebe-Waller Bridge. Considering the epic scale of most Bond films, we’re glad we’ll get a chance to see this on the biggest screen possible. Let’s just hope this one is worth the excruciating wait.
