It’s that time of year again: fall movie season. A period in which local theaters are beaming with a select choice of arthouse films that could become trophy contenders and the megaplexes are packing one holiday-worthy blockbuster after another. Only this year, like everything else, fall movie season — and with it, the kick-off of awards season — won’t exactly be business as usual. It won’t be as muted as last year, though.

Several tentpole titles will finally be released — some of them after being postponed for months — either in theaters or on streaming services — or both.

Netflix has a full slate of fall film releases. Some of them will make select theater debuts, and some titles will be simultaneously released in movie theaters and on other streaming platforms like HBO Max or Apple TV+. Other services like Prime Video are also stockpiling film releases for the holiday season.

Here are some of the most relevant movie titles to be released in the fall of 2021.
