Upcoming fall 2016 new movies: our selection

Finally, some great movies are coming to the big screen this fall!

Here’s our pick!

Sully (September 9)

Tom Hanks, Clint Eastwood and the story of the “Miracle On The Hudson” forced water landing. What more do you need ?

The Light Between Oceans (September, 2)

A couple unable to have a baby of their own rescue and unoffically “adopt” a little girl… All is well  until the real mother shows up in their lives…. Pass the hankies!

The Magnificient Seven (September, 23)

Honestly, I don’t think Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke are a match for Yul Bruynner and Steve Mc Queen in this remake of the classic western, but let’s keep an open mind…

The Girl on The Train (October 7)

If, like me, you’ve loved the book, then you must be highly anticipating the movie adaptation. If it’s as good, then you’ll be sitting by the edge of your seat!

Check this link for a full list of upcoming movies!
