*AN: Hey everyone, sorry for the large gap in posting anything. I have been away completing my final year at University. However, I have graduated and I’m back! I will be posting regularly more TV and Movie reviews, as well as other entertainment content. I have lots of content planned! My names April and I approve this message *
The past few months have offered plenty of great movies. Some of my favourites being Spider-Man: Homecoming (Jon Watts, 2017), Baby Driver (Edgar Wright, 2017), Wonder Woman (Patty Jenkins, 2017) and Dunkirk (Christopher Nolan, 2017). Despite these great movies, we have some pretty exciting films coming out next month, from remakes of classic horror to highly expected sequels. So without further ado, here are my top 3 anticipated movies of September.
3) Flatliners (Niels Arden Oplev, 2017) will be first released 28th September.
Some of the most asked questions we ponder about are: what happens after we die? What lies beyond life? Do I need to get out of bed this morning, like do I really need a job? (Answers: I don’t know, hopefully lots of dogs and yes, money).Well a group of students create an experiment in an attempt to answer the first two questions. They stop their hearts/ Flatline, to experience death and see where we are headed after we slip in the shower or eat an out of date sausage roll. What could possibly go wrong? Well, the afterlife doesn’t appreciate this jump between realms so part of the spirit world follows them back. (Insert some silly joke about being followed back on Instagram that will probably make me cringe when I re-read this post). It honestly looks very creepy! With disappearing figures that are trying to murder you. This science fiction horror could be a great movie, if they haven’t just shown all the good parts in the trailer. The film stars Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev, Diego Luna and James Norton so we can expect some realistic acting, BONUS! This thriller is in fact a remake so if you want to get a good feel of the film beforehand I suggest a watch (Joel Schumacher, 1990).
2) The Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Matthew Vaughn, 2017) will be released 20th September.
The boys are back! We have more guns, more ridiculous plot lines, more eccentric villains and some Americans (they wanted to supersize the sequel). There isn’t much to say about the plot, just think JAMES BOND. We have a villain with a plan to destroy the world and our boy Eggsy needs to save the world with the help of their American cousins ‘The Statesmen’. This might end in a mini patriotic war between our great nations. One who has the annoying orange as their president and the other, who decided to divorce the rest of Europe. “It’s not me, it’s you”. It’s going to be funny, action packed and full of some great music. I am also interested to see how they play out the Harry situation (never forgive, never forget). If you have seen the first film, you will know what to expect. Guns, fun, hot men in suits, sarcasm and a cute pug! If you haven’t seen the first, go now, run, run away to the nearest computer, sit and watch it, experience cinema. I think some of my excitement stems from the fact that I was able to watch them filming one of the chase scenes in Birmingham, UK. It took them 3 days to film 1 min 34 seconds worth.
1) IT (Andrés Muschietti, 2017) will be released 8th
Ok so first off, Ahhhhh! It looks so scary! Hollywood is bringing back the nightmare of our past clown traumas from this year. I swear if that craze starts up again I will send a strongly worded email to Stephen King himself (I’m British, this is how we show anger… that and tutting). Basically Pennywise the clown lurks around the town of Dairy and kills children. The film will focus on a group of children in particular, as they face the nightmare inducing clown. Hey Mike for Stranger things is in it…cool. In all seriousness, the original novel is terrifying and the mini-series is brilliant so they have a lot to work with. I’m sure that this is a horror film that will actually be good. Bring on the jump scares!
