Coming in hot -- and in arguably much higher volume than this past summer -- are a slew of autumn movies to be psyched about. From Halloween-time horror to Oscar hopefuls, browse through for TheWrap's list of the most anticipated new 35 fall movies worth obsessing over.
Sept. 7: "The Nun"
"The Conjuring" is one of the most popular horror movie franchises out there, and "The Nun" spinoff is only looking to elevate the series.
Sept. 14: "The Predator"
Though it was always billed as a reboot, director Shane Black has stressed that his movie “The Predator” is closer to a sequel, actually expanding on the backstory of the Predator aliens seen in the first two Arnold Schwarzenegger films. And while it includes the likes of Boyd Holbrook ("Narcos") Trevante Rhodes (“Moonlight”) and Thomas Jane, early looks at ComicCon highlighted Black’s sense of humor as well, with Keegan Michael-Key and Olivia Munn doing some heavy lifting.
Sept. 14: "Lizzie"
The new take on the Lizzie Borden murders, starring Kristen Stewart and Chloe Sevigny, captivated fans at the Sundance Film Festival.
Sept. 21: "Maniac"

Alluding to his 2004 documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11," Michael Moore's upcoming documentary takes aim at Donald Trump in the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election.
Sept. 21: "Colette"
Keira Knightley plays the real-life French writer who publishes her works under her husband's name -- and then defies early 20th century norms with gender-bending affairs. "Colette" was all the rage at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
Sept. 21: "Assassination Nation"
Another movie that made waves at Sundance, this film sold to the Russo brothers and Neon for a whopping $10 million, and follows a small town that absolutely loses its mind. Odessa Young, Hari Nef, Suki Waterhouse, Bill Skarsgard and Bella Thorne star.
Oct. 5: "Venom"
Tom Hardy steps into the role of Venom, one of the most popular characters from Spider-Man's rogues gallery. Thanks to incredible effects, Venom looks like he literally stepped out of the pages of the Marvel comics. Sony rebranded all its Spider-Man characters into "Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters" with Venom leading the charge.
Oct. 5: "A Star Is Born"
Bradley Cooper! Lady Gaga! Bradley Cooper SINGING (and directing for the first time)! We get it all in this movie.

Oct. 12: "Beautiful Boy"
Timothée Chalamet captured everyone's hearts with last year's "Call Me by Your Name," and early critics have been raving about the movie that looks at the experience of struggling with addiction over many years. Steve Carell also stars as his dad.
Oct. 19: "Halloween"
A reboot of John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic of the same name? Count us in! David Gordon Green directs, with Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as Laurie Strode.
Oct. 19: "The Hate U Give"
“The Hate U Give” may end up being one of the timeliest movies of the year. This adaptation of Angie Thomas’s young adult novel of the same name follows an African American teen turned activist after she witnesses her friend shot and killed by a white police officer. Amandla Stenberg plays Starr Carter opposite a great cast including Regina Hall, Anthony Mackie, Issa Rae, Common and Russell Hornsby.
Nov. 2: "Bohemian Rhapsody"
The film has been in the news a lot, for good and bad -- director Bryan Singer was fired and replaced by Dexter Fletcher, for one. But the movie amped up anticipation again with the first trailers in which star Rami Malek looks identical to Freddie Mercury. The casting couldn't have been better.
Nov. 2: "Suspiria"
To be honest, Luca Guadagnino's upcoming remake of Dario Argento's creepy horror movie "Suspiria" has been haunting us for months with stills, teasers and most recently, its first trailer. Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton star.

Nov. 21: "Green Book"
Peter Farrelly, of “There’s Something About Mary” fame, may seem like an odd choice for a biopic resembling “Driving Miss Daisy” and two Oscar nominees. But “Green Book” plays on the humor and true story drama between pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and his driver Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a surly, Italian American former bouncer. Set during a tour of the South in the ‘60s, “Green Book” probes themes of race as well as friendship.
Nov. 21: "Creed II"
2015's "Creed" made a huge dent, both critically and commercially, and even scored Sylvester Stallone a Best Supporting Actor nomination from the Academy. We can't wait to see what Michael B. Jordan and new director Steven Caple Jr. cook up in the sequel.

Nov. 23: "Shoplifters"
Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s thoughtful and often heartwarming family dramas have long been a staple of Cannes and the art-house circuit, but his latest, “Shoplifters,” finally won him the Palme D’Or at Cannes last May. It tells of a family of small-time thieves who find a missing child on the street and welcome her into their home, only to have their shoplifting habits come under the microscope.
Nov. 30: "If Beale Street Could Talk"
All eyes are on Barry Jenkins after the Best Picture-winning success of his 2016 film “Moonlight.” His follow-up, which he writes and directs, is an adaptation of a 1974 novel by James Baldwin in which a Harlem woman named Tish (newcomer KiKi Layne) tries to prove that her imprisoned fiancé is innocent while pregnant with their child.
Dec. 7: "Mary Queen of Scots"
Early photos of Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie as royal cousins amped up anticipation for the historical drama scripted by Beau Willimon ("House of Cards").

Dec. 21: "Cold War"
Pawel Pawlikowski's follow-up to his 2013 Best Foreign Language Oscar winner "Ida" is a searing love story that plays out over 10 years amid the, well, Cold War in 1950s Poland and Paris. Ten different chapters offer glimpses at the rough love between a conductor (Tomasz Kot) and his ingénue (Joanna Kulig). An unforgiving, stylish and cynical lens make Pawlikowski's cursed lovers all the more watchable.
Dec. 21: "Alita: Battle Angel"
