The latest film by Mexican Alfonso Cuarón heads our list. He won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. It is a black and white film that tells the story of a family that lives in the Roma neighborhood of Mexico City, where Cuarón grew up, during 1970. As the Taste of Cinema website mentions, it is It would be the director's first Spanish movie, after "Y tú mamá también", from 2001. It is expected to be available on the Netflix platform, since it is from the production company, in mid-December.
It is the latest film from the universe of the creators of The Conjuration. Although IMDB has a score of just 5.9 out of 10, this film was one of the most anticipated of the year due to the rumors that in its premiere people from the public had to leave the theater. It is a horror film in which a priest, a peasant, and a novice are sent to investigate the suicide of a nun in an ancient monastery. The nun is already on billboards in Latin America for all terror fans.
The Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos is characterized by rare and uncomfortable films. He also writes stories set in the future (The Lobster) or imagines other worlds out of time (DogTooth). This time he has chosen to direct a period history. It is about the story of Queen Anne of England and a battle between a duchess and her cousin for his attention. It has a cast of first: Olivia Colman, who will play Queen Elizabeth in the third season of The Crown, Oscar winner Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, who has already collaborated with Lanthimos. This, the only comedy on our list will be released in November in North America and we expect it to be released in December in Latin America.
It is a remake or, as the director prefers to call it, a reimagining of Argento's classic. It is the director of the box office and very applauded Call me by your name, Luca Guadagnino. A series of disappearances in a German ballet school torments the protagonist of this film, a recently arrived American. It is an Italian horror film classic. This time, the film will star Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton. It will be released in November on the platform of its production company: Amazon Studios.

It is the first film in English of the Belgian director Felix Van Groeningen. It is a drama of a father and son in which the son will be interpreted by Chalamet and the father by Steve Carell. It will be released in the United States in October, but it does not have a release date in Latin America.
According to Taste of Cinema, it revolves around the years that led the legendary English band Queen to the concert Live Aid in 1985. This film changed its director, which has put the public in doubt. However, it remains one of the most anticipated films by the audience, because we all want to see the great Freddie Mercury alive again in the interpretation of the protagonist of Mr. Robot, Rami Malek. It is expected to be released in movie theaters in November of this year.
Another autobiographical film on our list: First Man tells the story of Niel Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. Best of all: Damien Chazelle, director of the acclaimed La La Land meets again with his protagonist, Ryan Gosling. We will also see Claire Foy, Queen Elizabeth in The Crown. In the Venice show, there was a lot of talk about this film, so we can not wait. Between October and November will be in theaters of Latin America.

A boy from Arkansas (Lucas Hedges) is interned by his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crow) in a gay youth rehabilitation camp. This film, which seeks to shed light on this issue, is based on the memoirs of Garrard Conley, who, in effect, was admitted to conversion therapy when his parents knew he was gay. The film, which has a score of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, will be released in November.
Mary, Queen of Scots
The two fashion actresses star in this other historical drama: Soirse Ronan (Lady Bird) and Margot Robbie (I, Tonya).

This film revolves around the correspondence between the two cousins and explores their relationship: a friendship turned rivalry. You reach the Billboard Latin America later this year.
