I recently read an article on how movie ticket sales have been down this year. With as many flops and fails that were intended to be box office smashes, it doesn’t come as a surprise. The only saving grace thus far has been super hero movies, which everyone has been worried would dry up. Ticket sales have been down as much as, the last couple weeks local theatres have had discount pricing on all of their showings. Well, September brings hope, not much, but, there is one movie that I think we all would like to see. I have faith that it can at least knock out the reigning September box office champion, Hotel Transylvania 2. Let’s have a look at what is coming out shall we?
Kingsman: The Golden Circle
The Kingsman makes its highly anticipated return, after a somewhat surprising successful first film. The Golden Circle features bigger losses, and higher stakes, as they team up with the American Statesman organization, to defeat a new villain played by none other than the fantastic Julianne Moore. This film may not get me to the theatres, but it will be worth a watch.
A remake of the 1990 hit film that featured an unforgettable cast of Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, and Kevin Bacon. This new go-around shines a bright cast itself with Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev, and Rogue One hero, Diego Luna reprising roles. With technology where it is 27 years later the thrills of Flatliners may be all that more… thrilling. Worth a watch.
Goon: Last of the Enforcers
Say what you will, Goon was a great comedy. Maybe I am a sucker for hockey films- I always did love me some Mighty Ducks. The return of Doug Glatt is an easy cant miss for me, especially watching him come full circle now being the aging, retiring enforcer. With the hockey season coming up, I’m honestly jonesing for this flick.
The Lego Ninjago Movie
Thus far Lego movies have not disappointed. I am a big fan of The Lego Movie, and The Batman Lego Movie, so watching this one with the kids is a no-brainer. With a cast featuring Jackie Chan and Dave Franco, this may be another homerun in Lego’s take over of the big screen. An absolute can’t miss.
Without a doubt, It has been one of the most anticipated films of the year, internationally. The Stephen King novel is a horror classic, the t.v. film is a cult horror must, and with the rise of popularity with shows like Stranger Things, Pennywise’s first appearance on the big screen is a near guaranteed nightmare. In a good way. The trailers alone have been enough to freak me out, when I see this one in theatres, I will try and make it a matinee, so I don’t have to walk back to my car in the dark.
Thanks booknerds, happy viewings!
