October 2018 is going to be a very exciting time for film. A Star Is Born, which has been one of the most awaited movies of the year, is coming out that month, giving Lady Gaga fans a different side to the pop icon, as well as showing off Bradley Cooper’s musical side. But besides that, there are so many other Oscar contenders coming out in October, and you're going to want to see them all.
Timothée Chalamet will likely receive an Oscar nomination for the second year in a row for the biopic Beautiful Boy, where he portrays Nic Sheff, a heroin addict whose father desperately tries to help. His co-star Steve Carell also has a high chance of being nominated. Then there's Melissa McCarthy, who has a high chance of being recognized for her first dramatic role in Can You Ever Forgive Me?, a biopic based on Lee Israel’s true crime memoir.
Many of these movies have the potential to be game-changing roles for each star, considering they’re vastly different from others they’ve portrayed in the past. But in addition to those exciting titles, there are plenty of more films coming out in October that’ll make you want to spend all of your free time in the movie theater.
