There may not be much time left in the year, but the upcoming holidays sure aren’t stopping the movie industry from bringing laughter, tears, and fright to the big screen!  Halloween is just a few weeks away, and we’re being revisited by the classic movie Halloween, based off of the 1978 horror starring Tony Moran as the source of fright: Michael Myers.  Forty years after the original story takes place, the unforgettable mask returns to the big screen just in time for the season of fright.  Halloween is in theaters on Friday October 19th with Jamie Lee Curtis returning as Laurie: a woman who escaped Mike Myers’ dangerous clutches.  The movie focuses on Laurie facing her worst fears, after years of living in fear after her experience with the ruthless figure.  What will she do when she comes face to face with the man who tried to kill her so many years ago?

Even more so, with the passing of Halloween, another holiday is on the minds of many – Christmas!  Dr. Seuss’s the Grinch has the family-favorite Christmas grump returning this holiday season.  This is the first rendition of the classic Dr. Seuss tale since the 1966 version, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!  The live-action version of the story from 2000 starred Jim Carrey and Christine Baransky.  The 2018 film stars a includes well-known actors, actresses and even musical artists.  This includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, and Pharrel Williams.  The film will be released on Friday, November 9th, giving moviegoers plenty of time to see the movie before Christmas.

Another movie that peoples of all ages are looking forward to is Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie telling the story of timeless band Queen.  It details the life of Freddie Mercury, the band’s lead singer, and how the band grew to reach the fame that it still retains today.  Rami Malek portrays Freddie Mercury in the movie, and there are already rumors of him being a possible Oscar nominee in 2019.  WWHS sopomore Alexandra Gougousis is, “very excited about the movie,” and plans on seeing it as the 1975 hit Bohemian Rhapsody is “one of [her] favorite songs”.  The movie is coming out on November 2nd, and critics are sure it won’t disappoint.
