We know not everyone has time for every major release or big movie, so instead of featuring 10 great films a month, these are four films that cannot be missed in September. They’ll either be films coming out in theaters or something on Netflix I think that’s worth the watch. Also, don’t forget that you don’t necessarily have to watch whatever film I choose. Watch whatever you want! I’m just throwing in my 2 cents of what should be watched! It’s a pretty cool mixture of genres! Check out my article for what films should of been watched back in August.

Riddick

Starring Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, and more. Out in theaters now, it’s the sequel and it’s directed by David N. Twohy.

Synopsis:

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.

Prisoners

Starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Melissa Leo, Maria Bello, Viola Davis, and Terrence Howard. Out in theaters on September 20th, it’s directed by Denis Villeneuve. It has plenty of awards buzz!

Synopsis:

How far would you go to protect your child? Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter, Anna, is missing, together with her young friend, Joy, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a lack of evidence forces the only suspect’s release. Knowing his child’s life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. The desperate father will do whatever it takes to find the girls, but in doing so, he may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?

rush

Rush 

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Alexandra Maria Lara, Daniel Bruhl, and Olivia Wilde. Out in theaters on 27th, it’s directed by Ron Howard. Check out our favorable advance review here. 

Synopsis:

Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl star as legendary Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda respectively in this biographical drama set during the 1970s, at the peak of their heated rivalry. Both on the track and off, Hunt (Hemsworth) and Lauda (Bruhl) couldn’t have been more different. Yet as much as Englishman Hunt’s showy public persona clashed with Lauda’s reputation for tightly-controlled perfectionism, both men remained bound together by one undeniable fact — they were both among the best drivers ever to grace the racetrack. When a horrific crash during the 1976 Grand Prix at the Nürburgring nearly claims Lauda’s life, however, a grudging respect begins to develop between the two racers as Hunt realizes just how devoted his greatest adversary is to the sport they both love. Olivia Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara co-star in a film directed by Academy Award-winner Ron Howard, and penned by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, Hereafter).
