The fall movie season is around the corner, meaning an increase in releases at the multiplex that are more dramatic as studios and distributors try to build up award-season buzz.
That said, there will still be plenty of must-see releases like "It: Chapter Two," the Will Smith action movie "Gemini Man," and end-of-the year titles like "Frozen 2" and "Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker."
These are all things the industry is happy to see. Hollywood is hoping for a strong second half at the box office to close out 2019, since the summer movie season didn’t pack as big a punch as 2018.
From "Joker" and "The Irishman," to "Jumanji: The Next Level" and "Cats," here are 36 movies that will be worth your time coming out in the fall and beyond:
“It: Chapter Two” — September 6
