New Movies To Watch This Oct 2016
The Girl on the Train (Oct 7th)
"The Girl On The Train" is the high-profile movie premiere of the month. This Emily Blunt-led drama is a film adaptation of the best-selling novel authored by British author Paula Hawkins. I haven't personally read the book, but many critics have compared the vibe as being similar to "Gone Girl," which is a novel I read and a movie I loved. The trailers look suspenseful and great, something I am definitely eager to watch!
The Accountant (Oct 14th)
I'm not gonna lie: the trailers for "The Accountant" left me wondering how this movie will play out. Accountants are stereotypically perceived as boring people, so it feels like this movie added a Jason Bourne-esque badassery to the central character – and I'm not sure if it will work. I'll trust that Ben Affleck, who hasn't been disappointing me at all for the past few years, didn't get involved in a corny project and that the story will justify this accountant-by-day, vigilante-by-night character.
Inferno (Oct 28th)
Author Dan Brown and his novel "The Da Vinci Code" were the most hyped up things in the entire universe back in 2006 (ten years ago!) when the movie adaptation for that book came out. But the movie treatment just didn't do that well with critics and the sort-of-sequel "Angels & Demons" movie came out in 2009 with much less expectation surrounding it. Now, "Inferno," the third and seemingly final installment of movies following Tom Hanks' character Professor Robert Langdon, is finally coming out. I'm sure it will be, at the very least, a good and nerdy investigative experience.
