  • The 5 cinema releases that you need to watch in September

With the summer blockbuster season over and the award season not quite upon us, it would seem like we're in a 'no man's land' of film releases.

But far from it, September boasts an incredible list of releases, including potentially the two scariest horror films of the year and one long-awaited blockbuster sequel...

It - 8th September

The first time we will see Pennywise grace our screens since Tim Rice played the evil clown in the 1990 TV miniseries will see Bill Skarsgård putting on the haunting makeup which will certainly leave viewers scared of clowns for years to come.

Argentinian horror director Andrés Muschietti steps in to bring Stephen King's 1986 horror novel to life, with a second concluding installment planned for the future.

Muschietti has assembled a very capable group of child actors (including Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard) for the Losers' Club, and if Skarsgard's performance is as scary as the promotional marketing material, this could scare cinemagoers out of their skins.

Mother! - 15th September

Darren Aronofsky, the Oscar winning director behind Black Swan, The Wrestler and Requiem for a Dream, returns to the screen for his latest psychological horror, casting his girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence in the lead.

Lawrence plays a young woman living a tranquil life with her husband (Javier Bardem), only for things to get unsettling when a mysterious couple (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer) arrive at their house and stay with them.

With Aronofsky's well-established directing skills and a star-studded cast, mother! could potentially challenge for prizes when Awards Season rolls around.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle - 22nd September

After Kingsman: The Secret Service was a runaway success back in 2015, a sequel to the spy action-comedy was almost guaranteed, and the Kingsman comic books, created by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, gave writer/director Matthew Vaughn plenty of material for the sequel.

Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, and Colin Firth return, while an impressive cast, including Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal join, as the series heads to America to see the Kingsman team up with their American equivalent - The Statesman.

Bigger, bolder and brasher than the original, we're expecting more big stunts, violent scenes and silliness from Eggsy and the rest.

Goodbye Christopher Robin - 29th September

Domhnall Gleeson stars as author A.A. Milne in the biopic of the creator of the Winnie the Pooh stories inspired by his son Christopher Robin.

Meanwhile, Margot Robbie plays Daphne, Milne's wife and the mother to Christopher Robin, while Simon Curtis - who helmed My Week with Marilyn - directs.

With a touching subject material and superb leading actors, Goodbye Christopher Robin is set to be a thought-provoking and insightful look into the creator of one of the most famous childrens stories.

Victoria and Abdul - 15th September

Based on the interesting true story of the real-life friendship between Queen Victoria and her Indian servant Abdul Karim - with Judi Dench taking on the role of the famous long-serving monarch.

Philomena and Florence Foster Jenkins director Stephen Frears is behind the camera, and with a cast including Eddie Izzard and Michael Gambon, it comes with very high pedigree indeed.

Having its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, big things are expected from this touching and heart-warming drama.
