12 Biggest Movies of September 2015

We take a look at what are the most anticipated and exciting movies hitting the cinemas this month.

As we head into spring and the weather begins to heat up, we get a wealth of big movie releases hitting theatres this month. From video game adaptations and reboots, to new horrors and sports dramas, there’s something for everyone this September, and here’s the movies we can’t wait to see:

Hitman: Agent 47

Release date: 4 September 2015

The first Hitman movie starring Timothy Olyphant wasn’t great, but it was far from anything to recommend. Well, director Aleksander Bach has decided to take a new crack at the iconic video game assassin in a new movie that reinvigorates the bald-headed anti-hero on the big-screen.

Hitman: Agent 47 stars Rupert Friend as the barcoded head-basher, along with Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, and Thomas Kretschmann also featuring in the cast.

 

The Transporter: Refueled

Release date: 4 September 2015

No one expected a reboot to the Transporter series, let alone one without Jason Statham behind the wheel. Still, The Transporter: Refueled looks like it could prove to be a worthwhile revisit of the action franchise. This time, Ed Skrein – who’s also set to play Ajax in next year’s Deadpool – plays Frank Martin, a skilled fighter and driver with a very specific set of rules.

 

Southpaw

Release date: 4 September 2015

Jake Gyllenhaal made a striking transformation in Training Day director Antoine Fuqua’s forthcoming boxing film Southpaw, which saw the actor train himself in the art of boxing to give a convincing performance as Billy Hope, a prized boxer who goes through personal loss and turmoil and has to face his demons and work his way back to the top.

Alongside Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Forest Whitaker and Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson are among the supporting cast.

 

Vacation

Release date: 11 September 2015

Vacation is the fifth instalment in the National Lampoon’s Vacation series, and this is somewhat of a reboot. Rusty Griswold is now grown up and taking his own family on the same road trip to Wally World he did as a kid in the original film.

This looks fun, it looks like there’s genuinely great comedy at play here – and the cast is perfect. We’ve got Ed Helms (The Office), Christina Applegate (Anchorman), Leslie Mann (This Is 40) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor, Rush, The Avengers) filling out this cast.

 

Dark Places

Release date: 11 September 2015

Charlize Theron returns in this emotional thriller about a woman who confronts traumatic, childhood memories of the murder of her mother and two sisters when she investigates the possibility that her brother (Corey Stoll) is innocent of the crime.

 

The Visit

Release date: 11 September 2015

After breaking out with The Sixth Sense, it’s fair to say that M. Night Shyamalan’s career has been more erratic than most. Many of his films – including 2013 sci-fi adventure After Earth – have been subject of some harsh criticism and middling box office. However, The Visit could be the film to finally get the writer/director back on track.

The film stars Olivia DeJonge and Ed Oxenbould as two children who get more than they bargained for when they stay over at their grandparents’ house. Of course, like many previous Shyamalan films, details about The Visit remain largely under wraps, but what we’ve seen thus far has us intrigued and more than a little creeped out.

 

Everest

Release date: 18 September 2015

Often, nature itself is the fiercest antagonist big-screen heroes can dare go up against. Everest is the latest film to illustrate the awesome power of the great outdoors, as a snow storm wreaks unexpected havoc on an expedition to climb the eponymous mountain.

Featuring a stark color palette and a startling 3D visual scope, the movie features an ensemble cast that includes Jason Clarke, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sam Worthington, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Keira Knightley, Robin Wright and Emily Watson. At this point, it remains to be seen if the film does justice to its stars and the epic adventure it portrays, but for fans of old-school adventure films centering on man versus the elements, Everest will certainly be one to watch.

 

We are your friends

Release date: 18 September 2015

Max Joseph from MTV’s Catfish makes his directorial debut with We are your friends, which stars Zac Efron as Cole Carter, an aspiring DJ caught between a forbidden romance and the expectations of his friends. attempts to find the path in life that leads to fame and fortune. Cole will have to make some tough choices on his way to the top.

 

Max

Release date: 18 September 2015

If you want your heart-strings pulled this month, check out Max. The film picks up after U.S. Marine Kyle Wincott is killed in Afghanistan, Max, his highly trained service dog, is too traumatized to remain in service. Back in the U.S., Kyle’s family adopts the dog, but teenage brother Justin (Josh Wiggins) has problems of his own and doesn’t want the animal. However, Max may be Justin’s only chance to learn what really happened to his brother. With the help of a dog-savvy friend, Justin and Max begin to bond, and set out to unravel the mystery of Kyle’s death.

 

The Intern

Release date: 25 September 2015

Director Nancy Meyers (Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated) brings Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway together, but makes Hathaway the boss in this lighthearted comedy. Throw in Workaholics star Adam Devine and this one could be something worth checking out.

 

Self/less

Release date: 28 September 2015

Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley star in Self/less. The film follows a dying real estate mogul (Kingsley) who transfers his consciousness into a healthy young body, but soon finds that neither the procedure nor the company that performed it are quite what they seem.

 

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

Release date: 28 September 2015

The Maze Runner was one of 2014’s most unique and surprisingly good films, and this month we get the second instalment in the series.

Director Wes Ball returns for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and if anything, the sequel promises to significantly raise the stakes for Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) and the rest of the returning cast. The mystery of the series’ central organization WCKD will begin to come to light, no doubt building up to an epic conclusion in the trilogy-capping Maze Runner: The Death Cure, already in development for a 2017 release.
