15 huge movies coming to the big screen in September
Cinema lovers have an absolutely STACKED month of movies to look after to!
If you thought the difficult cinema decision of choosing between Barbie and Oppenheimer was tough when they were both released on the same day... we've got an even trickier one for you. Your local cinema could be showing SIX new arrivals on the very first day of September, and the must-watch list doesn't slow down much after that!
SOUND OF FREEDOM - Sept 1
Already one of 2023's most talked about and most controversial movies (read all about it here), Jim Caviezel stars in what is reportedly based on a true story of a man who attempts to single handedly stop a child trafficking ring.
APOCALYPSE CLOWN - Sept 1
At the time of writing, this Irish comedy has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 100%. It tells the story of a troupe of clowns travelling across a post-apocalyptic Ireland, all in search of one last shot to make their dreams come true.
COBWEB - Sept 1
Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) and Anthony Starr (The Boys) are the parents to a young boy who is being tormented by the knocking sounds inside the walls of his home. A creepy psychological horror from the minds behind This Is The End and Pam & Tommy.
PASSAGES - Sept 1
A man (Ben Whishaw) has his life turned upside down when he discovers that his long term boyfriend (Franz Rogowski) has embarked on an affair with a young woman (Adèle Exarchopoulos). A very modern romantic drama.
THE EQUALIZER 3 - Sept 1
Denzel Washington is back to exact revenge on any wrong doers, except this time he's doing it in Southern Italy. We will never forgive them for not calling this The Threequalizer. (Note: there are advance screenings in some cinemas from 30 August.)
JURASSIC PARK - Sept 1
We wrote about this movie's 30 year anniversary when it arrived back in June (deep dives on the mega blockbuster can be found here and here), but this re-release will see Spielberg's dino disaster get either a 4K update or special 3D screenings, depending on your local cinema.
MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 3 - Sept 8
This was very well timed, wasn't it? Just as Aidan is wrapping up in And Just Like That Season 2, star John Corbett returns with Nia Vardalos for this rom-com sequel. The first one was pretty great, the second one was kinda awful... so we'll have to wait and see how this one turns out.
PAST LIVES - Sept 8
Cards on the table: we've seen this movie already, and at the time of writing, it is our favourite movie of 2023 so far. Go in knowing as little about this romantic drama as you possibly can (even avoid the trailer below), and then thank us after the credits begin to roll.
THE NUN 2 - Sept 8
The 2018 original was really quite bad, but it was also a massive box office success. However, we've got a good feeling about this sequel, as the script is coming from the same writer behind recent bonkers horror hits Malignant and M3GAN. If they can bring that same energy to this movie, we could be on to a winner.

A HAUNTING IN VENICE - Sept 15
Following on from Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile, this is the third entry in the murder mystery series directed by Kenneth Branagh. As one of his fellow guests at a seance is murdered, Poirot must figure out who the killer might be. Branagh's co-stars include Jamie Dornan, Tina Fey, Jude Hill, Kelly Reilly and Michelle Yeoh.
DUMB MONEY - Sept 22
Craig Gillespie (I Tonya, Pam & Tommy) directs this drama based on the true story of the GameStop stock scandal. The massively impressive cast includes Paul Dano, Pete Davidson, Vincent D'Onofrio, America Ferrera, Nick Offerman, Anthony Ramos, Sebastian Stan, Shailene Woodley and Seth Rogen.
BALLYWALTER - Sept 22
One week after his first episode as host of The Late Late Show, Patrick Kielty will have his first dramatic role arriving in cinemas. He co-stars with Seana Kerslake (The Hole in the Ground, A Date for Mad Mary), telling the story of a unique connection made between two strangers in the titular town.
THE LESSON - Sept 22
Ireland's own Daryl McCormack is at the centre of this psychological thriller, hired as the tutor for the son of a famed author (Richard E. Grant) and his wife (Julie Delpy), but before long, he begins to uncover to some very dark secrets from their shared past.
EXPEND4BLES - Sept 22
Iko Uwais (the guy from The Raid movies) is the lead villain in this latest entry in the all-star action franchise. Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture return, this time joined by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Megan Fox, Tony Jaa and Andy García.
THE CREATOR - Sept 28
Gareth Edwards (Rogue One, Godzilla) directs and co-writes this high concept sci-fi action thriller set against the backdrop of a war between humanity and an AI force.
