Share This Article:

October is looking to be a pretty exciting month for film, so here's a look at the films that will really be worth your while.

The Girl on the Train

Based on the book by Paula Hawkins, The Girl on the Train is a mystery thriller which follows divorcee Rachel Watson who fantasises about Scott and Megan Hipwell’s relationship while commuting to work. However, she soon gets caught up in a missing persons investigation when Megan disappears and is presumed dead.

With a stellar cast of Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux and Luke Evans, The Girl on the Train is looking to have to have as much success as the book did. The trailer alone is thrilling, and is looking promising to be one of the biggest and best releases this month.

The Girl on the Train is released 5th October through Entertainment One.

My Scientology Movie

Everyone’s favourite documentarian is back, taking on one of the most controversial organisations in the world. Louis Theroux has explored neo Nazis, swingers, porn stars, prisoners, zionists, black nationalists, and now he’s taking on Scientology. In a rare feature length documentary, he investigates the infamous Church of Scientology. However, in true Scientology fashion, as Louis and director John Dower attempt to make a film about the notoriously private church, they in turn film Louis and the crew in retaliation.

My Scientology Movie is sure to have more of Louis’ insistent questioning, awkward moments, and revelations about the people he spends time with- all of the things that makes his documentaries unique and so enjoyable to watch.

My Scientology Movie is released on 7 October through Altitude Films.

American Honey

Winning the Prix du Jury at Cannes Film Festival, America Honey is looking to be one of the biggest hits on the festival circuit. With it finally being released in cinemas in October, Andrea Arnold’s first film to be directed outside of the UK is definitely one to watch.

In it, free-spirited teenager Star (Sasha Lane) has nothing to lose, and joins a travelling magazine sales crew. She travels round with itinerant labourers who go door to door selling the magazines, but also parties hard at night after the long hours of the day. Star is offered a new life with new family, hope, and freedom.

American Honey, also starring Shia LaBeouf and Riley Keough, looks to be a unique take on the coming-of-age drama.

American Honey is released on 14th October through Universal Pictures.

I, Daniel Blake

Auteur Ken Loach is once again fighting the common man’s struggle in I, Daniel Blake, which tells the story of a middle aged carpenter in need of state welfare, who meets a single mother in the same desperate situation. Loach is again working with Paul Laverty, after success on a number of other projects including The Wind that Shakes the Barley, Sweet Sixteen, and The Angels’ Share.

Despite countless nominations and wins at festivals and prestigious award shows such as the BAFTAs, Loach’s work never loses its essence which fights the battles for those without a voice.

Having already won the Palme D’or at Cannes, I, Daniel Blake is sure to be another emotional journey.

I, Daniel Blake, is released on 21st October through Entertainment One.

The Queen of Katwe

Disney are taking things in a new direction with this biographical drama which follows young Phiona (Madina Nalwanga) living in the slum of Katwe, Uganda. When she one day meets Robert Katende (David Oyelowo), who teaches her how to play chess, her world changes. In becoming fascinated with this game, she is successful in competitions and soon sees light at the end of the tunnel, and a chance to escape an impoverished life.

Disney really know how to do rags to riches tales, and there’s no doubt this one’s going to be just as wonderful and uplifting as the rest.

Queen of Katwe, is released on 21st October through Walt Disney Studios.

Doctor Strange

Marvel’s latest release sees Benedict Cumberbatch in a completely new role, playing Dr Stephen Strange, a surgeon who suffers a terrible accident and loses his ability to operate. Having no chance at what looked to be a successful career, Dr Strange seeks advice from a mystical being, where he learns that he is Sorcerer Supreme, and is responsible for protecting the planet. No biggie right?

Doctor Strange is set to be the biggest release of the month, boasting an impressive cast of Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen.

Doctor Strange is released 25th October through Walt Disney Studios.
