  • Cast: Michael Keaton, Winoa Ryder, Jenna Ortega, Catherine O'Hara, Monica Bellucci, Willem Dafoe, Justin Theroux
  • Director: Tim Burton

Thirty-six years after Tim Burton and company first said Beetlejuice three times, the ghoul is back in Beetlejuice 2, now officially titled Beetlejuice Beetlejuice. Michael Keaton reprises his role as Beetlejuice, as does Winoa Ryder as Lydia Deetz and Catherine O'Hara as Delia Deetz, with the newest member of then Deetz family, Astrid, played by Wednesday star Jenna Ortega. The original Beetlejuice is a classic, so there are bound to be lofty expectations for the sequel.

Speak No Evil

  • Release date: September 13
  • Cast: Mackenzie Davis, James McAvoy, Scoot McNairy, Alix West Lefler, Kris Hitchen, Motaz Malhees
  • Director: James Watkins

The latest in the US remakes of international horror movies, Speak No Evil is a Hollywood adaptation of the 2022 Dutch movie of the same name. The story focuses on a family invited to spend a weekend at a seemingly idyllic country house. However, the weekend soon turns into a psychological nightmare.

Transformers One

  • Release date: September 13
  • Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm, Keegan-Michael Key, Brian Tyree Henry, Laurence Fishburne

  • Cast: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Amy Ryan
  • Director: Jon Watts

Ocean's Eleven stars George Clooney and Brad Pitt reunite in Wolfs, but this time as two lone-wolf fixers who get assigned to the same job. With the two-stars attached, this looks like it has the potential the kind of more adult-driven entertainment that we just don't get enough of these days. Wonder if the movie will explain why they opted for the incorrect spelling of wolves, but whatever.

Saw XI

  • Release date: September 27
  • Cast: TBD
  • Director: TBD

Just about a calendar year from the release of Saw X, horror fans are getting another entry in the franchise with Saw XI. There are no details on who is directing or who is in the cast as of yet, but we'd be surprised if Tobin Bell didn't return.

Untitled MonkeyPaw Movie

  • Release date: September 27
  • Cast: TBD
  • Director: TBD

Another movie with mystery surrounding it is this Untitled MonkeyPaw Movie. MonkeyPaw is Jordan Peele's production company, but with Peele's fourth movie releasing on Christmas Day, this is going to be something entirely different.

  • Release date: October 4
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Lady Gaga, Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland, Zazie Beetz

Get ready for more as Joker: Folie à Deux brings Phoenix back to the role of the Joker with Lady Gaga joining with him to put her own spin on Harley Quinn.

  • Release date: November 8
  • Cast: Tom Hardy
  • Director: Kelly Marcel

Tom Hardy's Venom gets to complete this trilogy, as what we're just calling Venom 3 for now (the official title hasn't been announced) helps cap off Sony's year of Spider-Man adjacent characters on the big screen. The third Venom movie was originally slatted for a summer 2024 debut, but the movie's fall release is in line with its previous two premieres, which worked out pretty well at the box office.

Alto Knights

  • Release date: November 15
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Debra Messing, Katherine Narducci
  • Director: Barry Levinson

While Robert De Niro's most recognizable collaborator is Martin Scorsese, the Oscar-winning actor has also worked frequently with Barry Levinson over their careers, and will do so again with Alto Knights.

  • Director: Ridley Scott

Movie fans are getting the chance to return to the colosseum with Ridley Scott's long awaited sequel to his Best Picture-winning movie Gladiator. However, one key component will be missing from Gladiator 2 — Russell Crowe's Maximus won't be back (not surprising considering how the first movie ended). There's still plenty of star power in the movie though to make up for that, including Denzel Washington, Pedro Pascal, Paul Mescal and Barry Keoghan headlining the cast.

Moana 2

Can the movie enter into the conversation of best movie musicals

After rebooting The Lion King in 2019 with hyper-realistic animal characters, Disney is returning to Pride Rock once again with Mufasa: The Lion King, but this time with a story that focuses on Mufasa's origin story. How did the young lion become the respected king that we see in The Lion King? That's what we expect this movie to explore.
