Films coming to cinemas this September

BN1 Magazine’s monthly round up of the latest blockbusters coming to cinemas. Here is Septembers ‘what films to watch’ list…

THE EQUALIZER 3 

Out now

Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen) directs this much anticipated third slab of violent vigilante action. Alongside Dakota Fanning, David Denman, Sonia Ammar, and Remo Girone, Denzel Washington plays the secretive Robert McCall. By day he’s quiet and unassuming, trying to get through at a menial job. By night, he’s America’s most dangerous pensioner.

This retired US Marine and former CIA operative has moved to Southern Italy, in an attempt to escape from his past. It’ll be no great surprise to discover his new circle of friends are under the control of the local Mafia. The following events turn horrifying, where Robert unleashes his past self and dishes out some bloody justice.

MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 3

Fri 8 Sept

Starring Elena Kampouris, John Corbett, and Louis Mandylor, we get a welcome third helping of this classic romantic comedy franchise. Directed by Nia Vardalos, we call in again on the Portokalos family. They are now on a typically chaotic trip to Greece. 

Gus Portokalos has passed away, and his big wish was that the family go to the village in Greece where he was raised and connect with all their extended and delightfully colourful family. Fans can expect laughs, plenty of romance, family escapades, healthy servings of souvlaki and… just maybe… a wedding. After all, Ian and Toula’s daughter, Paris, is still single. Sounds promising.

THE NUN II

Fri 8 Sept

Not everything is black and white. The ninth instalment in The Conjuring Universe franchise promises to be a spooky gothic affair. Starring scream queen Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story, The Bling Ring), Jonas Bloquet (Elle, Private Lessons). Bonnie Aarons (The Princess Diaries), Storm Reid and Anna Popplewell. It’s set four years after the ending of The Nun.

We’ve learned that Maurice had become possessed by the demon Valak, and that this somehow ties in with the impending death of a main character. So, now we follow Sister Irene as she once again confronts this nun-shaped evil force at a boarding school in France. Don’t go in alone.

Europe’s most picturesque city gets a supernatural treatment, when Kenneth ‘Chuckles’ Branagh returns as a certain iconic Belgian detective.

A new generation joins the world’s top action stars for one more adrenaline-fueled adventure.

John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is back, in the most chilling instalment of this gruesome horror franchise yet. We get to explore the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s most personal game. 

Set between the events of the first two films, a sick and desperate John travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure in hopes of a miracle cure for his cancer. But he realises the entire operation is a scam to defraud the vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, John returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way through a series of ingenious and terrifying traps.
