movie review

This summer saw one of the worst cases of blockbuster fatigue in recent years, with major tentpoles like Star Trek Beyond, Ghostbusters, Independence Day: Resurgence, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Pete’s Dragon, Ben-Hur and even Steven Spielberg’s The BFG wildly underperforming. As the summer movie season winds to a close, we can now look forward to the fall, when studios stop relying so much on IP and start dishing out a wave of prestige films, all of which you can check out in the Fall Movie Preview 2016 below!
