8 Biggest Movie Releases of October 2021

Check out the 8 hottest movies releasing in October 2021!

From big-name sequels to excruciatingly delated releases, the movie schedule for October is looking to be just the antidote to get people back into cinemas; and we’ve rounded up 5 of the most-anticipated releases we can’t wait to get our eyes on:

No Time to Die

Release date: 1 October 2021

It’s been 4 years since the last James Bond movie, but Daniel Craig is back to follow up Spectre in the next (and supposedly his last) film as 007. In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. Alongside Craig, Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek takes on the role of the villain this time around, with Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, and Jeffrey Wright all along for the ride.

Don’t Breath 2

Release date: 1 October 2021

2016’s horror-thriller Don’t Breath was one of the most tension-packed and disturbing releases of the year, and it’s getting a sequel this August. Hiding out for years in an isolated cabin, the Blind Man (Stephen Lang) has taken in and raised a young girl orphaned from a house fire. Their quiet existence is shattered when a group of kidnappers show up and take the girl, forcing the Blind Man to leave his safe haven to save her.

The Last Duel

Release date: 15 October 2021

Ridley Scott’s latest historical epic tells the story of In knight Jean de Carrouges and his squire Jacques Le Gris in 14th Century France, who are ordered to fight to the death after Carrouges accuses Le Gris of a heinous crime committed against his wife. The film stars Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Adam Driver, and Nicole Holofcener.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Release date: 15 October 2021

Spider-Man villain spin-off Venom was a standout success for Sony and Marvel upon its release in 2019, and the sequel is finally releasing after numerous delays. Venom: Let There Be Carnage picks up after the events of the first film, with Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) now learning to live with his symbiote attachment, Venom. However, a new threat in the form of Cletus Kasady (played by Woody Harrelson) emerges, who goes on to become iconic Spider-Man villain, Carnage. Directed by Andy Serkis, the film also stars Michelle Williams and Naomie Harris.


Release date: 22 October 2021

An all-star cast featuring Timothée Chalamet, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Jason Momoa, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Oscar Isaac, and Stellan Skarsgård headline this remake of the 1984 film, which was based on the 1964 Frank Herbert sci-fi novel. The film is directed by Denis Villeneuve, who helmed the sublime Hugh Jackman feature Prisoners and The Arrival. Being the first part of a two-part release, Dune follows a brilliant and gifted young man who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people as he hunts for the source of the galaxy’s most powerful resource.

Ron’s Gone Wrong

Release date: 22 October 2021

Ron’s Gone Wrong is an endearing-looking animated film that pairs some great talent. The film follows a socially awkward teenager named Barney who gets a B-Bot (AI-controlled bots which are used as friends), but Barney’s ‘Ron’ isn’t exactly working as specified. The film is directed by Jean-Philippe Vine and Sarah Smith and written by Peter Baynham and Sarah Smith. Zach Galifianakis, Jack Dylan Grazer, Olivia Colman, Ed Helms, Justice Smith, and Rob Delaney all lend their voices.


Release date: 29 October 2021

Anything Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pacific Rim, The Shape of Water) touches is going to feature frightening or monstrous creatures and a compelling story, and that seems to be the case with Antlers. Del Toro is producer on the film, with Scott Cooper (Black Mass, Hostiles) directing. The film follows a small-town Oregon teacher (Keri Russell) and her brother (Jesse Plemons), the local sheriff, who discover that a young student (Jeremy T. Thomas) is harbouring a dangerous secret that places the entire town in danger. The script for Antlers was adapted from short story from Nick Antosca, creator of horror anthology series Channel Zero, although not much is known about Antlers other than the basic premise.

Halloween Kills

Release date: 29 October 2021

Halloween Kills looks to be a finale of sorts, and a sequel to 2018’s Halloween and the twelfth instalment in the long-running Halloween slasher series. Franchise veteran Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle reprise their roles as Laurie Strode and Michael Myers, with James Jude Courtney also portraying Myers again. Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, and Will Patton also reprise their roles from the previous film, with Anthony Michael Hall and Thomas Mann also join the cast. The film, which begins precisely where the previous film ended, sees Strode and her family continuing to fend off Myers, this time, with the help of the Haddonfield community.
