On the cover of New York Magazine’s September 3–16, 2018, Fall Preview issue highlighting the best forthcoming movies, TV shows, books, pop albums, and more, Jonah Hill discusses making his directorial debut with film Mid90s. Highlights of the issue include a look at newcomer KiKi Layne’s starring role in Barry Jenkins’s Moonlight follow-up, If Beale Street Could Talk; Kiernan Shipka growing out of Sally Draper in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina; Troye Sivan’s sophomore album, which aims for broad pop stardom; and 20th-century mystic and pioneering abstract painter Hilma af Klint finally getting taken seriously at the Guggenheim.
“As usual, working on our Fall Preview issue made me even more excited for all the impending entertainment of the next four months,” says New York culture editor Lane Brown. “This year, it almost felt like there were too many great-looking things to cram into one magazine.” Brown says the magazine tried to feature the culture makers who could speak to as many of them as possible, including Lucas Hedges, who appears in three fall films and makes his Broadway debut in The Waverly Gallery, and Jonah Hill, writer-director of Mid90s and star of Netflix’s Maniac. “But this issue will also introduce readers to people they don’t know yet but might soon,” says Brown.
