We may not be getting the crisp fall weather just yet, but we are getting previews for tons of movies opening in the fall. In preparation for this autumn and winter at the theaters, I've broken up the lengthy list of upcoming movies into many small themes for my Fall Movie Preview series. This way, you'll be in the know when the chillier months roll around, bringing a whole new crop of new films. Today's roundup features three of the sci-fi flicks we can expect to see in the coming months.
I Am Legend
In I Am Legend, Will Smith plays Robert Neville, who is "the last man alive. He busies himself with preparing for a nightly attack from the rest of the world — all of which have transformed into blood-thirsty vampires." Well, at least he has his dog. Check out the trailer for the movie before I Am Legend hits theaters December 14.

Resident Evil 3: Extinction
This third film in the Resident Evil trilogy picks up five years after the second one ended, when about 98% of the world's population was infected with the T-Virus. According to the plot description: "The movie setting takes place primarily in a now barren, deserted Las Vegas wasteland and Alice (Milla Jovovich), the movie’s main protagonist, leads the caravan of human survivors through the Nevada desert on a long trek to Alaska, where it was discovered that there are no infections. Along the way, it is determined that the heinous Umbrella Corporation is continuing its evil work and must be destroyed once and for all. Sought after by the evil underlings of the diabolical Dr. Isaacs, Alice has Undeads hungry for her flesh, and lab rats hungry for her blood — whilst Alice hungers for only one thing: revenge!" Check out Jovovich and Ali Larter in this third Resident Evil film when it opens September 21.
Alien vs. Predator Requiem (AVP2)
Okay, this image just makes me laugh (is that the laser equivalent of spitting in someone's eye?), but I know that this film is a big deal for some sci-fi fans who are really into the Alien and Predator movies and video games. This movie finds, well, Alien and Predator pitted against one another, waging "their most brutal battle yet in an unsuspecting Colorado town." The fight begins December 25.
