Best Movies in Theaters in September 2018 – Top Movie Releases This Month
Peppermint (September 7)
Jennifer Garner is pissed. After members of a drug cartel kill her husband and daughter, Riley (Garner) seeks revenge from a system too afraid and corrupt to bring them to justice. Five years later, she returns with a new haircut, a white tank top, and a thirst for bloody vengeance. This is the closest Garner has come to going full-Alias again, and that’s a good thing.
The Nun (September 7)
Do you love religious horror and clergy members with disfigured faces? Good news! The Nun is for you. When a young nun takes her life in Romania, a priest and a novitiate just shy of taking her vows head to the Vatican to investigate. Looking at the trailer, your faith has to run deep if you’re still willing to team up with God full time after this.
The Predator (September 14)
As if there’s not enough to worry about in 2018, the Predator franchise is back—and bad news: These aliens are better at hunting, evading death, and eating the flesh off your stupid human body than ever before. After their release back on Earth, it’s up to Boyd Holbrook, Sterling K. Brown, Olivia Munn, and the kid from Room to stop the insanity one. more. time.
White Boy Rick (September 14)
Based on a true story, Ricky Wershe Jr.’s life is brought to the big screen. Why would you make a movie about a 16-year-old in the 1980s? Well, he was a kingpin, a dealer, a hustler, and an FBI informant at the height of the War on Drugs. Meanwhile, what were you doing at 16? If it’s like us, it’s nothing that crazy. Bonus: Matthew McConaughey stars as his dad.
A Simple Favor (September 14)
Stay with us here. On the surface, it looks like a Blake Lively/Anna Kendrick movie where one of them stars as a mommy vlogger. Strange, right? But when you look closer, Paul Feig (!!) is directing it, and it’s most certainly not a comedy. When Lively’s character goes missing, the psychological thriller follows Kendrick’s character through the mystery that is her disappearance.
The House With a Clock in Its Walls (September 21)
This is the perfect film for anyone who might be having a little bit of Harry Potter withdrawal. With Jack Black leading the magic-filled cast, a young boy discovers that he’s a warlock (not a wizard, Harry) when he moves in with his uncle. Together, they must destroy… You guessed it: the clock inside its walls. And this isn’t a regular clock. If they fail, nothing good is going to happen, that’s for sure.
The Sisters Brothers (September 21)
Set for a late September release, The Sisters Brothers is a star vehicle if there ever were one. Jake Gyllenhaal, Joaquin Phoenix, and Riz Ahmed lead the western/comedy mix set in Oregon in 1851, which is the closest we’ve seen to the live-action Oregon Trail movie that we all deserve.
Fahrenheit 11/9 (September 21)
If you aren’t getting your daily dose of existential dread from Twitter, or if you’re just looking to OD on the state of American politics, then this follow up to Fahrenheit 9/11 is the perfect nugget for your September movie plans. Asking the question “What the fuck happened?” Michael Moore is at it again, following the strange ascent and reign (can we use that word? I’m going to use that word) of Donald Trump.
Blaze (September 21)
Blaze comes from four-time Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke, who is at the directing helm instead of in the starring role. The film follows Blaze Foley, a Texas songwriting legend whose life met an early end at the height of his career.
Night School (September 28)
Night School is the perfect comedic combination: Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart. Hart? A high school dropout who needs to snag that GED to finally become a financial analyst, because, why not? Haddish? The night school teacher who is standing between him and his GED. *chef’s kiss*
