September is upon us, bringing a lot of great -- or if not great, at least fun -- new movies to theaters.
If you're planning your cinematic schedule this month, here are the films we're looking forward to seeing in theaters this September. Mark your calendars!
No Good Deed
Releases September 12th. Stars: Idris Elba, Taraji P. Henson. Director: Sam Miller.
This home invasion thriller doesn't look like it breaks from the expected tropes, with Elba playing an escaped criminal who charms his way into Terri's (Henson) home and proceeds to terrorize her and her family. However, Elba and director Sam Miller have worked together before to great results in Luther, and there's a chance this could hit some of those same fantastically creepy notes.
Releases September 12th. Stars: Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, James Gandolfini. Director: Michaël R. Roskam.
Bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) finds himself in the middle of a robbery gone awry when someone holding up his bar takes money destined for the mob. Based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, who also brought us Mystic River and Shutter Island, this could be a solid crime drama. Plus high-caliber talent like Hardy, Rapace, and James Gandolfini in his last role are likely to make it worth watching even if the story does fall flat.
