September 2017 Movie Preview

In a new recurring article to MovieBabble, a preview of the films to come in the following month will be listed and discussed.  The first month discussed will be September 2017 (but you already knew that from clicking on the article).  Without further ado, let’s take a look at what will be coming out in the September 2017 movie preview:

September 1st

As like in year’s past, Hollywood has officially punted away from releasing any new films nationwide.  However, there are still films that will be released.  One film that is coming out in limited release is Tulip Fever which has a star-studded cast including Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz, and Cara Delevingne.  However, the film has been sitting on the shelf for quite some time so it might be best to lower your expectations for that film.  Among the other noteworthy films to get released is Goon: Last of the Enforcers, the sequel to the sleeper hit Goon.  The film has a VOD release so you can watch it from the comfort of your home.

September 1st is certainly the dullest weekend in the September 2017 movie preview.

Here’s a complete list of the films getting some type of release on September 1st:

Tulip Fever



Get Big

I Do…Until I Don’t

Goon: Last of the Enforcers

Viceroy’s House

Hazlo Como Hombre

September 8th

The second weekend of the month is where things get interesting.  Hype is growing for Stephen King‘s It, with many statistics pointing to a $50 million-plus opening for the creepy clown flick.  Home Again may be perfect counter programming to It, as it details an offbeat, comedic relationship between Reese Witherspoon and four different men.

The story of the weekend, however, may be the film entitled 9/11 that stars Charlie Sheen and Whoopie Goldberg.  It follows the story of a group of people that get stuck in an elevator shaft of one of the twin towers during the 2001 attacks.  It looks every bit as offensive as it sounds.

Here’s a complete list of the films getting some type of release on September 8th:


Home Again


The Limehouse Golem

The Good Catholic

Napping Princess

Second Nature

Gun Shy


September 15th

The highlight of the 15th is definitely Darren Aronofsky’s mother! starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem.  Although it might get buried by a strong second weekend from It, it looks as creepy and unnerving as you might imagine.  mother! may be the most intriguing, under the radar film in the September 2017 movie preview.

Some attention may be averted to First They Killed My Father, Angelina Jolie’s Netflix film that details the genocide of nearly two million Cambodians.  This film should be taken with a grain of salt as Jolie reportedly dangled money in front of starving ethnic children and took it away to see how they’d react in casting for the role.

The other notable films to be released are American Assassin starring Michael Keaton and Dylan O’Brien as well as Brad’s Status which stars Ben Stiller and looks to have a very tender father-son relationship at its core.

As far as super indies go, Rebel in the Rye could be an interesting story as it depicts J.D. Salinger living a reclusive lifestyle after the fame and success of Catcher in the Rye.

Here’s a complete list of the films getting some type of release on September 15th:


American Assassin

All I See Is You

Brad’s Status

Infinity Chamber

The Wilde Wedding

First They Killed My Father

The Show

In Search of Fellini

Because of Gracia

Rebel in the Rye

September 22nd

MovieBabble’s personal must-see for the September 2017 movie preview goes to Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  It looks to double down on the heightened espionage of the first film while keeping all of the fun.

September 22nd is a very packed weekend.  By MovieBabble’s standards, there are four movies worth seeing in their opening weekends (Kingsman 2, Stronger, The LEGO Ninjago Movie, and Battle of the Sexes).

Both Stronger (starring Jake Gyllenhaal) and Battle of the Sexes (the story of the tennis match between Billy Jean King and Bobby Briggs) are receiving early Oscar buzz for their troubles.  If nothing else, they’ll probaby have great performances from Gyllenhaal in Stronger and Emma Stone and Steve Carell in Battle of the Sexes.

Here’s a complete list of the films getting some type of release on September 22nd:

Kingsman: The Golden Circle


The LEGO Ninjago Movie

Battle of the Sexes

The Houses October Built 2

Friend Request

Victoria and Abdul

Loving Vincent

Last Rampage

The Tiger Hunter

The King’s Choice


Bobbi Jene

September 29th

Tom Cruise‘s American Made is receiving some solid early buzz, currently holding an 87% on Rotten Tomatoes.  More likely than not, this critic will look to see that film first before checking out Sony’s reboot/remake/sequel/soft reboot of Flatliners.  It appears to be suitably off the rails considering its subject material while Flatliners may be another dud for Sony which isn’t having the best 2017 (The Emoji Movie, The Dark Tower, etc.).

Unfortunately, this may be seen as the gap week between Kingsman 2 and Blade Runner 2049 for many moviegoers, causing some to skip out on going to the theater altogether.

Here’s a complete list of the films getting some type of release on September 29th:


American Made

‘Til Death Do Us Part

Top Cat Begins

Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House

A Question of Faith

Our Souls At Night

Super Dark Times


Literally, Right Before Aaron

I’d like to learn more about Rebel in the Rye. I’m a huge fan of Salinger’s work from way back!

I’m intrigued as well, I’d like to peel back the layers on that story!
