Sadly days are getting shorter, fall is around the corner but so is a rich crop of fall movies. Now don’t be mistaken, we still have a few block busters to contend with Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, The Transporter Refueled and add a bit horror to that with The Visit, Green Inferno and Before I Wake to help bring summer to a close. Bringing in the fall we have a couple boomer comedies A Walk in the Woods, The Intern and a few indies; 99 Homes, Black Mass and the IMAX / 3D event The WalkSo whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.
