HYPE LIST OCTOBER 2022: MOVIES & TV SHOWS

From intense horror films to sports documentaries and even down to superhero and mythologically-centered tales. The month of October 2022 is just jam-packed with amazing films and shows that you won’t want to miss out on and our Hype List brings you the low down for each notable release. 

NETFLIX

FEATURED CONTENT

Doll House

Release Date: October 7

Baron Geisler stars in this Netflix original Filipino film that revolves around a troubled lead singer of a rock band who tries to undergo a journey of recovery from his demons of drugs and alcohol. His ultimate mission for redemption begins when he sets out to rekindle the relationship that he never had with his long-lost daughter. The story seems to be a very cutesy comedy-drama which may feature a side to Geisler that we haven’t seen before. We have to wait and see how it all turns out when Doll House drops on Netflix this October.

The Redeem Team

Release Date: October 7

From the filmmakers of the Michael Jordan documentary series The Last Dance comes the story of the US men’s basketball team as they seek to redeem themselves during the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

This series dives into how it all went down.

The Watcher

Release Date: October 13

The Watcher is based on the true story of a married couple who, after moving into their dream home in New Jersey, are harassed through letters signed by a stalker named The Watcher. This show is the brainchild of American Horror Story and Glee creator Ryan Murphy and it stars Naomi Watts and Bobby Cannavale. Based on the trailer, this looks like a very promising and utterly creepy offering that is just in time for the month of October.

Release Date: October 19

After getting unleashed from his 5,000-year imprisonment, Black Adam uses the almighty powers of the ancient gods to uphold his unique form of justice in the modern world while still being haunted by his past and those who hurt him and his family.

DISNEY+

HYPE LIST OCTOBER 2022: SNEAKERS AND STREETWEAR

Yeezys. Converse Chucks. Jordans. Reeboks. The month of October offers something cop-worthy for sneakerheads or even those looking to pull off a hype beast pair to match their OOTD.

New Balance 550 “Lakers”

  • Release Date: October 5
  • Price: Around Php 5,795

New Balance 550 "Lakers Pack" Release Date | SneakerNews.com

While unofficial, both 550 colorways in dominant white really fit the color scheme of the Los Angeles Lakers in Purple and Yellow. While there’s not much a difference from them with your usual 550, we think that the color scheme and unofficial Lakers association will make them hype-worthy.

A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Chuck 70

  • Release Date: October 6
  • Price: $110 (around Php 6,500)

A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Chuck 70 Release Date | SneakerNews.com

A-COLD-WALL* works on another collab with Converse, this time focusing on the Chuck 70. Keeping its simple, techwear vibe, both colorways of the upcoming collab feature reflective film prints and ACW patches on the lateral side, and translucent vulcanized soles, all while keeping the canvas upper that’s part of the Chuck 70’s core DNA.

adidas Yeezy 700 MNVN Analog

  • Release Date: October 6
  • Price: Around Php 13,000

Laceless adidas Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN "Analog" IG4798 | SneakerNews.com

Forget about the Kanye West drama, as adidas is still pushing through with its Yeezy Drops with this upcoming Analog Yeezy 700 MNVN. Unlike previous Yeezy 700 MNVN models, the Analog completely ditches the bungee lacing system for a complete laceless look. Pair that with a white/black color blocking, and they are a clean slip-on pair.

Reebok Answer IV Dynamic Blue

  • Release Date: October 7
  • Price: $150 (around Php 8,800)

Reebok Anwer IV "Dynamic Blue/Flash Red" HP3125 | SneakerNews.com

Reebok is coming back strong, and we’re excited to see some of Allen Iverson’s signature sneakers come back–even if they are not OG colorways like this Dynamic Blue one. We like the color blocking on these, as the red accents give it either a low-key Gundam vibe or a Clippers-inspired colorway

Reebok Question 97 Lux

  • Release Date: October 14
  • Price: $160 (around Php 9,400)

Reebok Question Mid Lux Black Gold Metallic H01308

Another interesting Reebok sneaker is this mid version of the Question (also known as Question 97) in a luxe black and gold color blocking. Aside from the color blocking, it’s said to be made of premium materials like smooth leather and nubuck, along with metallic gold accents to give it a luxurious appeal

Air Jordan 4 White/Nav

  • Release Date: October 25
  • Price: $210 (around Php 12,400)

Air Jordan 4 Midnight Navy DH6927-140 Release Date | SBD

While it’s not an OG colorway, this one mixes up the “Cement” Air Jordan 4 with Navy Blue accents, giving it a new look to the sneaker while keeping a close-to-OG look. It’s a true Air Jordan 4 through and through with its plastic winglets and heel tab, along with tumbled leather for the upper and its trademark midsole.

Chronicling the tales of ‘13 sleepless nights,’ the “Cardigan” singer is releasing her tenth studio album.

Returning to her lucky number, the brand new album features 13 songs, though the singer-songwriter has remained rather tight-lipped about them, their titles, and what they exactly will be about.
