Fall brings pumpkin spiced lattes, cooling temperatures, and, of course, upcoming fall movies students have been waiting for since last Christmas.
Jessi Bullis, junior psychology major, said she looks forward to witness what Disney will do with the upcoming installment of “Star Wars.”
“J.J. Abrams, my favorite director, is going to be directing, and I have complete faith in Abrams after ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Super 8,’” Bullis said. “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens,” is coming to theaters in Dec. 18.
Bullis said he grew up with her brother introduced as a “movie buff”, who accustomed the entire family to traditions like watching movies through the end of the credits.
“It’s fascinating to me that someone can put in so much work into a movie and for one small moment, a select few individuals in the cinema will get to see their name roll across the screen and honor themselves,” Bullis said.
Other students have traditional movie-going routines like Raymond McDowd, sophomore psychology major, accompanied by his three children and a large popcorn.
Alyssa Ares, junior communication disorders major, is excited for the last part of “The Hunger Games” trilogy, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” is in theaters Nov. 20.
“I was a fan before the movies, but I love the way they have put the previous films together and how the special
effects keep getting better,” Ares said.
Fall movie premieres offer entertainment for families and friends during the upcoming holiday seasons.
Kyle Perry, CBU master’s student in higher education, said he looks forward to “Black Mass,” an Irish gangster film in theaters now with Johnny Depp in the lead role. Perry also looked forward to the recently released “Z for Zachariah” a post-apocalyptic film currently in theaters.
“The films are fun to watch because it stirs our imagination and the actors in the movie are some of my favorites,” Perry said of the upcoming fall film season.
