Off to the Cinema: Here Are the Most Anticipated Autumn Films

Hungary Today 2023.08.24.

Many cannot wait to see Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio on the big screen, according to the Hungarian film database, Mafab. The most anticipated films include westerns, animated movies, and three book adaptations, reports Magyar Nemzet.

The top list is based on the database’s aggregated, quantified data that shows the most sought after films by domestic viewers. The ten most popular movies account for 100 percent of the total. In this context, Scorsese’s western, Killers of the Flower Moon, starring Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Lily Gladstone, based on a true story and opening in cinemas on October 19, is by far the most popular film, with almost 22% of viewers saying it was the film that attracted the most attention.

The animated movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, starring Jason Momoa, is expected to be released in December. It is in second place with 11.64%. Orm’s defeat is far from the end of the story, as the future of Atlantis remains uncertain.

The third most anticipated film, with 10.91%, is the star-studded Expend4bles, debuting on September 21 and once again brings together the world’s best elite mercenary team and leaves no stone unturned.

From September 28, the fourth-placed sci-fi thriller The Creator can be seen, in which a future war between humans and armies of artificial intelligence is set.

In fifth place is the horror film The Nun 2, which will be released on September 7. The storyline of the nun became one of the most exciting narratives after The Conjuring 2, where the character appeared first.

The sixth most anticipated film is another horror movie, The Exorcist: The Believer. Set to hit cinemas on October 12, it is intended as a direct sequel to 1973’s The Exorcist.

In seventh place is the horror film Saw X, which Hungarian audiences will have to wait until October 5 to watch. In the most exciting part of the franchise so far, Jigsaw’s most personal, yet unseen game takes place.

Perhaps surprisingly, only the eighth most anticipated film is Dune: Part Two, which will be screened from November 2 with a superb cast. The first part of the movie was a huge success and some of the scenes were shot in Hungary.

In ninth place we also find another sequel. The Hunger Games: Ballad of the Songbirds and Snakes, set six decades before the first part of The Hunger Games, which will be released in cinemas on November 16, and will introduce us to the creator of the cruel game.

Finally, The Marvels, hitting cinemas on November 9, closes the list with Captain Marvel reclaiming her identity from the tyrannical krees and taking revenge on the Supreme Intelligence.

As we reported recently, Hungarians are not idle in the film industry either, as they are putting the finishing touches on a 10-part series on John Hunyadi (Governor of Hungary between 1446 and 1453, and a leading commander against the Turks in the 15th century), titled Rise of the Raven, soon to be released. Moreover, the premiere of the film about the Árpád dynasty, the Rise of the Árpáds was also held over the weekend.
