Fall movie preview: 22 films you should see

A staggering 130 films will be released between now and Dec. 31. Let’s face it, many of them will not be worth your time or money. But there are some films you won’t want to miss.

Film critic Peter Travers, who is host of ABC News’ “Popcorn With Peter Travers,” shares his top fall picks.

“Mother!”

Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem team up for this new psychological thriller from director Darren Aronofsky. The couple’s relationship is tested when unexpected guests arrive at their home. Heavy hitters Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer round out the star power in the film that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

“This is a horror movie. It’s hallucinatory. It’s as crazy as anything I’ve ever seen,” Travers said. “Prepare to be blown away when you see it.”

“The Greatest Showman”

Hugh Jackman returns to the big screen, this time as showman Phineas Taylor, aka P.T. Barnum. This film is an original musical celebrating the birth of show business. Travers pointed out that musicals are risky, but the success of last year’s “La La Land” may be a sign that moviegoers might be open to their return.

“The composers of ‘La La Land,’ Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, have written the music for this 19th century musical. But they’ve written songs that are all sounding like top 40 hits today,” Travers said. “Really risky. I’m so into this.”

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is the upcoming eighth film in the Star Wars saga. Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill will return in starring roles.

“We’re all crazy about any ‘Star Wars’ movie. If you think you’re going to beat ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ at the box office, think again,” Travers said.

“Justice League”

Ben Affleck is back as Batman in the all new “Justice League.” This time he brings along friends in an effort to save the planet. Affleck’s superhero buddies will include Gal Gadot, whose “Wonder Woman” became became the summer’s top-grossing film, crossing the $400 million mark at the domestic box office.
