The 5 Most Anticipated Movies in September

by | September 8, 2017 | Comments

The summer blockbuster season may be over, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of high profile movies to look forward to. RT decided to take a look at all of the big releases coming out this month and figure out which movies all of you were most excited about seeing.

After looking at the number of Want-To-See votes on all of September’s films, we were able to narrow down the top 5, presented below. We also asked our followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram which movies they were looking forward to, and those results are listed as well. Without further ado, here are the 5 most anticipated September movies on Rotten Tomatoes… and one Honorable Mention.

Andy Muschietti directs this new adaptation of the Stephen King novel about a group of kids calling themselves the “Losers Club” (played by Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis, among others) who are terrorized by a shape-shifting monster that takes the form of a killer clown named Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård). The film is already Certified Fresh, and after a lackluster summer, it could be the perfect jolt of excitement to lead into the rest of the fall season.

Taron Egerton reprises his role from the surprise 2015 hit Kingsman: The Secret Service as Eggsy Unwin, the street-savvy petty thief-turned-super spy in the employ of a top secret agency. This time around, Kingsman headquarters is destroyed, and Eggsy and his fellow agents must team up with their American counterparts, the Statesmen, to unravel the conspiracy. Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) returns to the directing chair, while the supporting cast is rounded out by the likes of Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, and Channing Tatum, plus Colin Firth and Mark Strong from the first film. Kingsman: The Secret Service is Certified Fresh at 74%, and if The Golden Circle is anything like its predecessor, it’ll make for a fun, funny, adrenaline-filled adventure at the theater.

Jackie Chan, Justin Theroux, Dave Franco, and Olivia Munn headline a voice cast in the latest animated film to come from Warner Bros.’ successful collaboration with LEGO. Based on the popular martial arts-themed Lego Ninjago line of toys, the story revolves around a young Master Builder named Lloyd, who is secretly also the Green Ninja. Together with his friends, Lloyd must battle against The Worst Guy Ever for the fate of Ninjago City. Both The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie were huge successes and fun for the whole family, so it’s fair to expect Ninjago will be the same.

Dylan O’Brien and Michael Keaton star in this adaptation of the Vince Flynn novel of the same name, about a troubled young man who is recruited by the CIA and brought on board an investigation into a number of seemingly random violent attacks. This is one of just a couple straightforward action films opening wide this month, and nearly all of director Michael Cuesta’s (Kill the Messenger) films are Certified Fresh, so if you need a gritty espionage fix, this is movie for you.

Tom Cruise reunites with director Doug Liman for this drama based on real events. Cruise plays Barry Seal, a commercial pilot for TWA who is recruited by the CIA to fly secret reconnaissance missions over South America, but decides to incorporate a bit of drug smuggling for the Medellín Cartel on the side. Cruise and Liman previously found success with the Certified Fresh sci-fi action film Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow, and so far, this one has earned pretty great reviews as well, specifically calling out Cruise’s charismatic performance.

Darren Aronofsky’s (The Wrestler, Black Swan) latest is a psychological thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence as a woman married to a poet (Javier Bardem) whose life begins to unravel when mysterious, unexpected guests arrive at their country home. Though this film technically fell to #6 on our list, it made it to the top three on all of our social media surveys. Plus, Darren Aronofsky is a perennial awards season contender, the star power involved is impressive (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer appear in supporting roles), and early festival reviews have been strong.
