Where to get your fill of science fiction, fantasy and horror on the big screen in the next few months. Looking for something to watch from the comfort of your sofa? Check out our list of new television shows to get excited about this Autumn.

The Martian

The much-anticipated adaptation of Andy Weir’s The Martian, his debut novel about an American astronaut who becomes stranded alone on Mars and must improvise in order to survive.

UK release date: 30th September 2015

 

Macbeth

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard take their turn as the original power couple in the latest adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. 

UK release date: 2nd October 2015

 

The Witch

A family living in a remote part of New England in the 17th century are thrown into despair when their youngest child inexplicably goes missing. As they hunt for the lost child, paranoia breeds within the family and the growing belief that supernatural forces are at work. This looks unmissable.

UK release date: 12th October 2015

Crimson Peak

In a crumbling mansion in Cumbria, young author Edith Cushing falls in love and marries Sir Thomas Sharpe but soon discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be. Mia Wasikowska is great, and I think about Tom Hiddleston’s performance in Only Lovers Left Alive at least once a day, so I can’t wait to see this.

UK release date: 12th October 2015

 

The Lobster

In a dystopian future, single people are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods. And you thought Take Me Out was harsh.

UK release date: 16th October 2015

 

The Hallow

Moving to the countryside is always a recipe for disaster and in The Hallow that disaster comes in the form of demonic forest-dwellers. And also some sullen Irish people.

UK release date: 13th November 2015

 

 

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

After that ending, the second part of Mockingjay can’t come soon enough.

UK release date: 20th November 2015

 

The Good Dinosaur

In an alternate timeline where dinosaurs co-exist alongside humans, a young Apatosaurus named Arlo loses his father in a tragic accident. One day, Arlo falls into a river and gets knocked out by a rock, finding himself far away from his home. While trying to find his way back, he befriends a human caveboy.

This is giving me serious Land Before Time flashbacks. Too. Soon.

UK release date: 27th November 2015

 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

You might not have heard of this one, but apparently some people are pretty excited about it.

UK release date: 18th December 2015

    The Martian looks to be the stand out movie from the crowd and maybe Matt Damon will be recognised at last for his exceptional acting chops, he shows he is not afraid of anything and tries everything. Oscar anyone?
