Labor Day has passed us by and there’s a bit more of a chill in the nighttime air. Summer has moved on and we’ve made our way into fall.

But while summer blockbuster season may be over, there are still plenty of big movies coming to the big screen over the next couple of months. There are sequels and reboots, literary adaptations and animated affairs – not to mention a few award-season contenders.

No matter what you’re looking for, this fall has something in store for you.

As we come to the end of another cinematic year, certain elements of the Hollywood machine are ramping up into high gear.

Obviously, we’re entering into prestige season, where studios have traditionally trotted out their awards contenders in order to ensure that they are fresh in the minds of voters when balloting takes place.

Granted, that has changed somewhat in recent years – the combination of an expanded Best Picture field and a willingness to recognize more mainstream and commercial fare has led to less specificity with regards to where a film lands on the calendar. Still, the lion’s share of Oscar bait rolls out close to the cutoff date.

On the flip side, this late part of the year has also become a sort of second summer in terms of blockbuster fare. Films expected to do massive box office are no longer just the purview of June and July – December has now become a perfectly acceptable spot to place your nine-figure franchise powerhouse.

What follows is a look at some of the upcoming films that are closing out 2018, divided into two categories – “Awards Bait” and “Blockbusters.” This should give you an idea of not only what films are coming our way, but what KINDS of films they might be. Take a look.

A few fine films for fall

With the shift in the seasons, we also get a bit of a shift in our cinematic offerings. After a summer that featured blockbuster after blockbuster, a season of nine-figure box office dynamos led by all-time high-grossing superhero movies such as 'The Avengers' and 'The Dark Knight Rises,' things are calming down a bit this fall.

That's not to imply that there aren't some potentially great films coming out over the coming months.

The fall of 2012 has an awful lot to offer. You've got the triumphant return of a great director with Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master.' You've got a once-in-a-generation talent like Daniel Day-Lewis taking on the title role in the biopic 'Lincoln.' There's melodrama and intrigue, goofy animation and gritty science fiction. It looks like there could be some really good movies coming our way.

And also 'Twilight.'
