Here are the coming attractions for September.
Kin is in theaters today. Starring Jack Reynor, Zoë Kravitz, Carrie Coon, with Dennis Quaid, and James Franco, introducing Myles Truitt. Myles plays Eli, the adopted teenage brother of a recently released ex-con. Eli stumbled upon a mysterious weapon and he and his brother are now on the run from the feds, a vengeful criminal after his brother and a gang of otherwordly soldiers after their gun. I’m guessing based on the trailer. It looks like a fun little movie for back to school and with a great cast too! Carrie Coon, if you don’t recognize her, played Proxima Midnight in Infinity War.
Opening Sept 7. Jennifer Garner returns to the big screen and I’ll be honest, when the trailer started it looked like the same soccer mom movies that Jennifer has starred in lately. But watch the trailer. Because Jennifer Garner returns to her Sydney Bristow roots and kicks ass Alias style. I can’t wait to see this movie! Garner said during the junket she used Body by Simone to get back into shape for this role. I’ll be seeing this opening weekend.
A Simple Favor
In Theaters September 14. A Simple Favor stars some of our favorite actresses, Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. But we also get hottie Henry Golding fresh off of his turn in Crazy Rich Asians. Broadway star Andrew Rannells rounds out the rest of the star cast of Linda Cardellini, Jean Smart, and Rupert Friend. Anna plays a mommy blogger whose best friend Emily (Lively) disappears suddenly. Kendrick must get to the bottom of it but, at what cost.
Bel Canto is based on a true story of the Japanese embassy hostage crisis that took place in 1996. Ken Watanabe happened to be working in Peru then and had just left the country the week before. Had he stayed, he may have attended this party where rebels took hostages and the standoff lasted for more than four months. Julianne Moore looks amazing in this and while she can sing, they use the amazing voice of soprano, Renee Fleming. In theaters September 14.
If you can’t get enough This is Us on your TV, the director and writer brings that feel to the big screen with Life Itself on Sept 21st. Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde star as the main couple that we follow through life from college to marriage and birth of their first child, Life Itself. This looks to be a tear-jerker and a great offering from Amazon Studios in theaters. Is this a first for Amazon?
Also in the film are Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening, and Mandy Patinkin.
Is anyone tired of Keira Knightly in period costumes? Colette may be one of her best twirls in period looks yet. Forced to write novels for her husband, she challenged gender norms and apparently sexual ones. Her husband may have apparently encouraged relationships or affairs with other women according to history. In fact, in 1907 she almost caused a riot when she kissed another woman on stage. Colette hits theaters September 21st.
The House with a Clock in its Walls
Jack Black and Cate Blanchett star in this family-friendly fun fall thriller based on the middle grade books. Owen Vaccaro is a ten-year-old Lewis goes to live with his uncle (Jack Black) in a creaky old house that contains a mysterious ticktock noise. When Lewis accidentally awakens the dead, the town’s sleepy facade magically springs to life with a secret world of witches and warlocks. Looks like a fun follow up to the Goosebumps type films. Film hits theaters Sept 21st.
