After a hiatus of almost eighteen months, cinemas in Pakistan have been recently re-opened with flicks like “Venom 2”, “Conjuring 3”, “Jungle Cruise”, “Malignant” and “Dune”. Most of the cinemas have already resumed operations and with Cinepax Cinemas and Nueplex Cinemas to also re-open their sites in coming days, exciting times for movie buffs have surely began.

Here are the films that have been slated for release in cinemas this fall.
