6 Movies Families Can Look For This Fall

Dinosaurs and superheroes might have dominated theaters during the early summer but the last few weeks haven’t been very friendly for family audiences at the theaters.

Thankfully now that the weather is turning cooler and students are headed back to school, there are a few more movies you can take the kids to on the weekend.

September 18 If your kids haven’t read The Maze Runner series, you might want to pull out the books before taking them to the screen adaptation. In the second film, The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trial, the group of kids who escaped from the labyrinth find themselves at the mercy of adults who have another test for the teens. Expect lots of action and violence in this film.

September 25 Count Dracula learns all about being a grandfather when his daughter gives birth to a baby boy who may or many not have inherited the family vampire genes in Hotel Transylvania 2. Like the first film, this animated film sports a host of Halloween-ish characters that live in seclusion. This ghoulish tale will likely be best for kids who aren’t spooked by monsters.

October 9 The story of Peter Pan has made it to the big screen in over a dozen versions. But that isn’t stopping the directors behind the new swashbuckling adventures of Peter Pan in the pirate movie Pan. Levi Miller stars as Pan and Garrett Hedlund plays Captain Hook.

Football fans who aren’t at a game can catch more gridiron action in the new sports movie My All American. Freddie Steinmark has all the heart he needs to play football but he lacks the size he requires to be a shoo-in for the team.

October 16 The spooky kids books by R. L. Stine were popular in the 1990s. Now the monsters have escaped from their books and are coming to the big screen in the movie Goosebumps. Jack Black stars as author R.L. Stine in this live action horror comedy.

October 30 The 80’s cartoon Jem and the Holograms makes it to the big screen in this live action story about a small town girl who goes from Internet sensation to the global stage when her musical talents are discovered. But stardom comes with a price that she might not be willing to pay.
