It is among the movies being released in September. (PROVIDED via Film Select Trailers)

6 movies to be sure to see in September

In the past, September has been a notoriously slow month for box office revenue. But this year, there are more than just a few movies that are sure to shake things up. Check out these six movies this month. 


Stephen King’s It will hit theaters for the second remake of the novel on Sept. 8. Many people who follow the highly-published author have been anticipating the remake after a mini-series was released in 1990. Pennywise the clown, also known as “It”, has been revamped to an even creepier clown. This remake is sure to be just as creepy as the novel and give you nightmares. 


This highly anticipated movie from director Darren Aronofsky starring Jennifer Lawrence will come out on Sept. 15. The trailers give very little idea as to what the actual plot of the movie is, making it even more exciting. The thriller has been labeled as “the most controversial movie since A Clockwork Orange” according to the International Business Times. Lawrence said she “had to go to a darker place than (she’s) ever been in (her) life,” according to The Telegraph. This thriller is sure to have some plot twists no one will see coming. 

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

The action-adventure movie is set to be released Sept. 22. Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, which was released in 2014. The movie will include “statesmen,” the so-called “American cousin” of the kingsmen. The trailer hints that the statesmen are trying to destroy their British cousins. Colin Firth, Channing Tatum and Halle Berry are just some of the names in the film. 


Stronger, a movie about the comeback of Jeff Bauman after the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013, will hit theaters Sept. 22. The movie follows Bauman’s recovery after he loses both of his legs and his adjustment to life. Jake Gyllenhaal portrays Bauman in the biographical drama based off Bauman’s memoir, also titled Stronger.

American Assassin

The action film starring Dylan O’Brien and Michael Keaton is being released on Sept. 15. The movie follows O’Brien’s character as he trains to be a CIA black ops member under Keaton’s character after a terrorist group kills his beloved. O’Brien seems to play a much darker character than he usually does, such as his character Stiles Stilinski in MTV’s Teen Wolf.

Battle of the Sexes

Battle of the Sexes depicts the 1973 tennis match between Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) and Billie Jean King (Emma Stone). The film will include a bit of comedy in it, with Carell’s character poking at Stone’s for being a feminist and not as good of a tennis player. Despite the comedy, the film follows the tennis match and the “enduring fight for equality,” according to the LA Times. Battle of the Sexes will hit on feminist ideals with a hint of comedy.
