It’s hard to believe, but fall is right around the corner. Gone soon are the long days of sunshine, picnics and summertime vibes. Fall is a cozy season when the leaves turn colors and a warm cup of tea is always top of mind. What better way to get into the season than plopping down on the sofa, cuddling with your favorite blanket and watching a movie? 

Movies have a way of making us feel at home. They take us to places we’ve never been – or would never want to go – and awaken our imaginations. We’ve picked eight movies that can help you shake off the end of summer blues and seamlessly transition into the fall season.


On the go or at home, watch these great movies and more on a brand new iPhone 14! Find amazing deals here.


Sept. 28 on Netflix

Blonde arrives on Netflix following rave reviews from the Venice Film Festival. Garnering a rare NC-17 rating, the film stars Ana de Armas as Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe. Taking a cue from more recent creative biopics, this one follows her life from the beginnings of Norma Jean to becoming a world famous actress, her death, and finally the enduring icon we know today. 



Hocus Pocus 2
Sept. 30 on Disney+

Halloween season with Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy can only mean one thing – The Sanderson Sisters are back! In this long-awaited sequel to the 1993 film, the sisters again face off against two young foes who’ve summoned them.

Creating family-friendly spooks was no small task (clearly, given the time it took for the sequel), but this one is sure to please both young and old. 


Sept. 30 on Prime Video

While this one technically isn’t new, it is new to a streaming platform and a little bit different than the other films on this list. This big production will have you on the edge of your seat with more gunshots and car chases than you can manage.

A remake from a 2005 Danish film, this one stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who rob a bank (with just cause, of course) and must outrun the police. Set in Los Angeles, this is one unexpectedly wild ride for fall.


The Greatest Beer Run Ever
Sept. 30 on Apple TV+

Following up his Oscar win, Peter Farrelly offers another drama based on a historical story. Starring Zac Efron as John “Chickie” Donohue, this crazy misadventure takes us from 1960s New York City to the jungles of Vietnam, where our main characters have landed to have a beer in support of the troops in the war.

Why they chose to go into a warzone remains to be seen, but when Chickie is mistaken for a CIA officer due to his civilian appearance, the story becomes even more complicated – and fun. 


The Munsters 
Sept. 27 on Netflix

Not known for light-hearted affairs, but rather blood-soaked terror fests, Rob Zombie crosses over into family fun with a reboot of the beloved 1960s sitcom, The Munsters. This reimagining – now in color – takes us to the beginnings of this kooky family, who relocate from Transylvania to an American suburb with comedy aplenty.

Get ready for some good laughs and eye-popping visuals from one of the more notable names in horror. 


Goodnight Mommy 
Sept. 16 on Prime Video

Twin brothers visit their mother after what seems to have been major facial surgery. She’s wearing bandages that cover her entire face, and she is acting very cautious, if not downright bizarre. Things are not what they appear and as their time with her becomes more eerie and tense by the day, danger could be just around the corner.

Starring Naomi Watts, who is no stranger to horror, this English-language remake of the 2014 Austrian film of the same name promises to be the spine-tingler must-see movie of the Halloween season.


Do Revenge 
Sept. 16 on Netflix

This Hitchcock-inspired tale will bring new meaning to the phrase “bad girls.” A slick, stylish thriller starring Camila Mendes and Maya Hawke, the two young women scheme a plan to take revenge on each other’s high school bullies.

While Drea (Mendes) wants to get back at her ex for leaking a provocative video of her, Eleanor (Hawke) is going after those that made her into an outcast. It looks to be a fun, memorable little film. 


Sept. 2 on HBO Max

Director Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis stars Austin Butler in a career-making performance as the King of Rock n’ Roll. Songs, hip-thrusts, and stunning production design, this movie is an exciting – and unique – entry into the many tales of this legendary artist.
