Top Films for September

Been a bit behind with my September cinema preview – but here we are! Better late than never! Here are my recommendations for films hitting UK cinemas this September.

American Animals 

It annoys me that this isn’t getting a wide release because this is the easiest 5/5 I’ve given in a while. American Animals is excellent and not your average heist film. It stars Evan Peters and Barry Keoghan as two students who plan to rob a university library to steal valuable rare books – but they have no clue what they are doing. This is unbelievably a true story and features the real guys talking about what they did documentary-style. Fascinating stuff. Review coming soon. Released: 7th September

A Simple Favour

Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively together in a film?! That’s all I need to know about A Simple Favour, about a blogger who tries to uncover the truth about her best friend’s sudden disappearance. I love these two, I love director Paul Feig, so I have high hopes. Released: 21st September

 

Crazy Rich Asians

Everyone has been raving about this so I can’t wait to see what all the hype is about! It follows Constance Wu as Rachel, a New Yorker who travels to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s wealthy parents. I love a romcom so I think this is going to be right up my street! Released: 14th September

The Predator

I wasn’t particularly excited about another Predator film but the trailer for this actually makes me think it could be quite good. The cast list is pretty sweet, with stars like Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay and Boyd Holbrook. It is basically about a ragtag team of ex-soldiers who come together to defeat the aliens after they are accidentally brought back to Earth by a young boy. Thrilling stuff. Released: 13th September

The Miseducation of Cameron Post 

I saw this at Sundance London and I was blown away by Chloe Grace Moretz‘s performance. She plays a girl who is packed off to a gay conversion camp after her religious family find out she’s a lesbian. It is gripping, moving stuff. Released: 7th September
