From Summer Days to Midnight Mass, See This Week's New Trailers and Posters

Say goodbye to summer and hello to fall drama

Summer is coming to a close, which means things are taking a turn for the dramatic.

First, Michael Keaton comes straight from the headlines in two of the most impactful disasters from the 21st century: 9/11 and the opioid crisis. Then we get a welcome reminder that the fall scaries are right around the corner with a new haunted adventure. Finally, spirits are lifted with a bit of stage time, magical ponies and a final taste of summer.

Say goodbye to summer and take a look at some of the stories headed your way this fall with this week's trailers and posters.
