This time around, September will be a slow month for the ‘blockbusters.’ Even though there won’t be any big-time blockbusters, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some solid movies. This will be a month where some smaller budgeted movies might be able to shine. I’ve picked 5 movies that I’ll be watching come September.
5. The Green Inferno
A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone – and that no good deed goes unpunished.
Horror is kind of my guilty pleasure genre and I’m always looking for a bone-chilling experience. Now when there’s a horror movie with the name Eli Roth attached to it, I get very excited. After year’s of absence, he’s back to his twisted ways and the fact that he took his entire crew to the Amazon to film with a real tribe, I’m super interested to see how it turns out.
The Green Inferno was suppose to open on September 5th, 2014, release date is now up in the air.
4. The Drop
Bob Saginowski finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.
Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini in a Crime Drama, I’m freaking in. And the fact that it’s also James Gandolfini’s final movie after his passing, a movie genre where he is so incredibly good at, I’m excited to watch this one unfold.
The Drop will hit theaters on September 12th, 2014.
A man is captured by a maniac and tortured, physically and mentally, into becoming a walrus.
Any movie that Kevin Smith is directing interests me right away. Plus, like I said above, a horror movie is always a guilty pleasure for me. And that last line from the trailer, ‘I don’t want to die in Canada!’
Tusk is out in theaters on September 19th, 2014.
2. The Maze Runner
Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they’re all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow “runners” for a shot at escape.
Really the only big ‘blockbuster’ of the month as it’s an adaptation from a best-selling novel. Many people are iffy on it and think they’ve seen this kind of movie before, but I am looking forward to it. I think Dylan O’Brien will be a star in this business for a long time to come and I don’t read the books so I want to know what happens that much more.
The Maze Runner will run into theaters on September 19th, 2014.
1. The Skeleton Twins
After ten years of estrangement, twins Maggie and Milo coincidentally cheat death on the same day, prompting them to reunite and confront how their lives went so wrong. As the twins’ reunion reinvigorates them both, they realize that the key to fixing their lives just may lie in fixing their relationship with each other.
For a long time now, we’ve known Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader as hilarious comedic actors. They have proven themselves time in and time out, but as of late they have both ventured into the drama side of movies and have once again shown their talents. Putting them together as they play twins, I can’t wait to see the chemistry on-screen in a movie that is already getting really good reviews.
The Skeleton Twins will open on September 12th, 2014.
Honorary mentions: The Longest Week, This Is Where I Leave You, A Walk Among the Tombstones, and The Equalizer.
