On the cover of New York Magazine’s 2019 Fall Preview issue, Renée Zellweger talks to Jonathan Van Meter about taking time off and making a comeback at age 50. Elsewhere in the issue Rachel Handler and Hunter Harris go behind the scenes of the making of the movie Hustlers (which is based on a New York Magazine story); E. Alex Jung profiles Regina King; Jerry Saltz takes readers through a landmark show of artwork by prisoners; and critics share their picks for the best forthcoming movies, TV shows, books, pop albums, and more.

“This year’s Fall Preview is a mix of excitement and curiosity, discovery and celebration,” says New York editor-at-large Carl Swanson of the inspiration behind the package. “It’s fun to have an issue where we get to hear from opera divas, podcast innovators, first-time novelists, and longtime theater directors all at once — the whole cultural banquet, from Regina King to Marisa Tomei, Jeff Tweedy to King Princess.”
