2016 fall movie preview

This 2016 fall movie preview was written by Jacob Hall and Jack Giroux.

The summer is over and the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting milder and (fingers crossed) the movies are going to start getting better. The next four months offer an embarrassment of cinematic riches, with new films from Martin Scorsese, Damien Chazelle, Tim Burton, Gareth Edwards, Paul Verhoeven, Mel Gibson, Robert Zemeckis, Park Chan-Wook, Terrence Malick, J.A. Bayona, Jeff Nichols, Ang Lee, Denis Villeneuve, Kenneth Lonergan, and other filmmakers of note waiting in the wings.

We’ve narrowed down the list of must-see movies to 32 titles and have ranked them from “We really want to see this!” to “We will push you out of the way at a sprint to see this!”

jack reacher never go back poster

A widely released action movie starring Tom Cruise shouldn’t need people rushing to its defense, but I’ve spent the past four years sticking up for Jack Reacher. Christopher McQuarrie’s cinematic take on Lee Child‘s long-running series of novels about a homeless military police veteran who wanders the country solving problems with both his keen wits and his fists is nothing short of fantastic, an old-school, small-scale thriller that feels like it was made for, well, adults. The action is rough and intimate. The central mystery thoroughly engaging. The characters are rich and often very funny. It even features a brilliantly staged, low-key car chase that puts the bombast of most modern blockbusters to shame. Jack Reacher is the real deal.

As we approach the October release date of the sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, I find myself equally excited and trepidatious in equal measure. Cruise is back, but McQuarrie is not, with Edward Zwick now sitting in the director’s chair. Zwick has made good movies and bad movies, but he’s a solid journeyman when paired with the right material. Is a Jack Reacher sequel the right material? Can a new poster and extended TV spot answer that question?

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back trailer

Last week we got our first look at Jack Reacher: Never Go Back thanks to Entertainment Tonight. Unfortunately, the video was periodically interrupted by star Cobie Smulders as a talking head. (Don’t blame her, it’s the Entertainment Tonight way.) This week we’ve got the first real, full Jack Reacher: Never Go Back trailer, now with more context, more action, and fewer pointless interjections.

Tom Cruise returns as the stoic vigilante hero, who visits Virginia to meet with the head of his former unit (Smulders) and learns she’s been charged with espionage. Then he discovers he’s a wanted man, too. Oh, and that he might have a daughter he never knew about. Lots of drama for our guy this time around.

Jack Reacher Never Go Back trailer

Tom Cruise is back in action this fall with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, the Edward Zwick-directed sequel to Chris McQuarrie’s 2012 film. And our hero hasn’t lost a step. In the first promo from the film, the former military police officer once again finds himself in a sticky situation, and once again kicks, punches, and puzzles his way out of it. Watch the first Jack Reacher: Never Go Back trailer below.  Read More »

Tom Cruise in JACK REACHER

Tom Cruise may not be dangling from any skyscrapers or strapping himself to any moving airplanes this year, but we’ll still get to see him back in action later this fall. He’ll return as former military police officer and current professional badass Jack Reacher in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, based on Lee Child‘s bestselling series of novels. Ed Zwick directs this time, taking over from Chris McQuarrie who helmed 2012’s Jack Reacher. The first Jack Reacher 2 images have just hit the web, and you can get a look below.  Read More »

CinemaCon

We’re back in Las Vegas at CinemaCon, the annual gathering of movie theater exhibitors. As you probably know by now, theater owners from around the nation gather to, among other things, watch presentations from all of the major movie studios previewing their film slates for the upcoming year and beyond. The opening night presentation was Paramount Pictures, which came to Vegas to promote Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Ben-Hur, the first teaser trailer for the Ring franchise film Rings, the first footage from Tom Cruise’s sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Robert Zemeckis’ spy thriller Allied, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and a very early look at Baywatch starring The Rock and Zac Efron.

But the two biggest surprises involved Prisoners/Sicario/Blade Runner 2 filmmaker Denis Villeneuve adaptation of Story Of Your Life and the shocking lack of any Star Trek Beyond preview despite having Simon Pegg and JJ Abrams in town and on stage for an award celebration. The new Villeneuve film seems like a smart science fiction film, think Contact meets Close Encounters of a Third Kind. Hit the jump to watch a video blog reaction talking about all the clips shown at the presentation.

Jack Giroux’s Most Anticipated Movies of 2016

George Clooney in Hail Caesar

As Jacob noted the other day, this is the time of year we get to rest comfortably in our bubbles of excitement. We rarely feel any disappointment this early in the year with what’s hitting theaters (unless you were one of the few really pumped about The Forest), so we’ve yet to reach the point of skepticism about our most anticipated films of the year.

After the jump, help me countdown my most anticipated movies of 2016.
