Fall Movie Preview
The holiday season is just around the corner, and that means time for some brand new blockbusters and some Oscar worthy films. In addition to the obvious money makers (looking at you, Frozen 2) there are some awesome movies filmed right here in NYC coming to theaters very soon.
November 1st – The Irishman
Martin Scorsese’s long anticipated passion project is almost here! The film uses de-aging technology to change the appearance of star Robert De Niro in flashbacks as he recounts his career as a hitman. The movie also stars the likes of Joe Peschi, Al Pacino, Bobby Canavale, and Anna Paquin. The Irishman will be in select theaters starting November 1st, but available for streaming on Netflix on November 27th.
November 6th – Marriage Story
Starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson, Marriage Story tells the story of a coast-to-coast divorce between an actress and a director in Los Angeles and New York City. The movie is already getting Oscar buzz for both leads. With plenty of dramatic subway scenes in the trailer, we know we’ll see much more of New York in this movie. The film is coming to select theaters November 6th, and then will stream on Netflix starting December 6th.
November 22nd – A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Coming to theaters on November 22nd, Tom Hanks stars as the iconic Mr. Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. One scene with Mr. Rogers and a reporter character played by Matthew Rhys took place at the Hudson Theater in Midtown, with some other scenes utilizing a set built to look like New York City.
November 22nd – 21 Bridges
On the very same day don’t miss action thriller 21 Bridges starring Chadwick Boseman of Black Panther fame. He stars as an NYPD detective that has to put all of New York City on complete lockdown in order to track down the film’s killers. From the trailer, we can already see Grand Central Station and some of the titular bridges that go in and out of Manhattan.
