Top Films for September

sept1

How is it September already?! Winter is swiftly approaching (did we even have a summer?!) which means some of the best of 2015 movies are on the approach, starting with September, which has a few treats in store. Check out my preview highlights:

No Escape

This is an intense thrill ride that I would never have expected Owen Wilson and Lake Bell to star in. They are a couple who are relocating their family to some Asian country when they are caught in the middle of a violent uprising against the cooperation Wilson now works for. The rebels want all Americans dead and they must find their way to freedom. Awesome. Review coming soon. Released 4th September

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

This won rave reviews and prizes at the Sundance Film Festival and this quirky indie movie is so adorable and sweet. Thomas Mann plays Greg, who makes mini movie parodies with his friend Earl and he documents his budding friendship with Sophie, who has leukaemia. It’s heart-warming, charming and much funnier than you would expect. Review coming soon. Released: 4th September

Legend

Who can say no to some double Tom Hardy action? I haven’t seen one actor play two characters in a legit serious movie in years so it will be interesting to see how the technology has evolved and how convincing he is as two vastly different brothers – the infamous London gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray. From the trailer, this appears to be both violent and funny, which is a combo I’m down with. Released: 11th September

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

I don’t think the first Maze Runner movie convinced people but I have read the book to the sequel and it is much better and I’m won over by the trailer. It seems to have an injection of cash, the effects are better, the dystopian world setting looks cooler and it seems more adult. This time around Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and the remaining Maze survivors are put through a second test – this time they must make it through the Scorch – a desert land filled with crazy people-killing weirdos. Released: 11th September

Everest

This is a disaster movie on an epic scale featuring an all-star cast. This essentially follows two climbing groups as they fight for survival on Mount Everest when it is struck by a severe snow storm. The setting and beautiful effects has me sold but check the cast, which includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Keira Knightley, Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin and Sam Worthington (and many more!) Released: 18th September

Life

This drama biography looks interesting to me as I know very little about James Dean and I hope this gives us a good insight. He is played by Dane DeHaan and it focuses on a small section of his short life where he is accompanied by Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson), a photographer for Life Magazine for a photoshoot. I like these actors and I’m so intrigued by this. Released: 25th September

The Martian

I am in the middle of reading the Andy Weir novel at the moment so I’m very excited for this sci-fi drama. Matt Damon plays Mark Watney, an astronaut who is left on Mars presumed dead after a mission goes wrong. This follows his fight for survival and how his crewmates and NASA respond when they discover he is not dead after all. This is SO up my street. Released: 30th September
