Lovers of movies were no doubt disappointed when Sony Pictures moved sci-fi sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage from September 24 to October 15, and Paramount pulling the live-action Clifford the Big Red Dog from September 17 to a to-be-determined date.

Well, I am a movie enthusiast, and I wasn’t impressed at all. But to cuddle my frustration, as am sure other avid watchers would agree, there are some big movies for us this September.

Here is a list of movies currently slated for release this September according to boxofficepro.com.

  1. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Friday, September 3

Premise: Simu Liu stars as the superhero title character in Disney’s MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) installment. Avoiding the day-and-date controversy of July’s prior MCU release Black Widow, which premiered simultaneously in theaters and for a $30 surcharge on Disney+, Shang-Chi is committing to a 45-day theatrical exclusivity window. Destin Daniel Cretton, of Just Mercy and The Glass Castle, directs.

  1. Malignant

Friday, September 10

Premise: Annabelle Wallis stars as Madison, a woman who can telepathically witness murders occurring elsewhere, in this Warner Bros. horror. James Wan of horror titles SawThe Conjuring, and Insidious — not to mention less frightening fare including Aquaman and Furious 7 — directs.

  1. The Card Counter

Friday, September 10

Premise: Oscar Isaac stars as the title character, a former Abu Ghraib soldier turned casino gambler named William Tell. (Seriously.) Recruited by Cirk, the son a fellow soldier who committed suicide, the pair hatch a plan to exact revenge on a military commander played by Willem Dafoe, whom Cirk blames for his parent’s death. Paul Schrader, who penned the screenplays for Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, writes and directs this Focus Features thriller.

  1. Cry Macho

Friday, September 17

Premise: Clint Eastwood stars and directs this Warner Bros. drama-thriller about an old man hired by his former boss to return his son back to Texas from a dangerous part of Mexico. The film is based on the 1975 novel of the same name by N. Richard Nash — which, ironically, was originally written as a screenplay before Nash retooled it into a book.

  1. Blue Bayou

Friday, September 17

Premise: Justin Chon wrote, directed, and starred in this Focus Features drama about a Korean-American man living in Louisiana, adopted and brought to the U.S. when he was three, who’s targeted for deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) due to his criminal record. Academy Award-winning Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) costars as his wife.

  1. Copshop

Friday, September 17

Premise: Gerard Butler stars as a hitman assigned to kill a target, except the target get himself arrested by sucker-punching a rookie cop — so to get himself closer to his target, the hitman intentionally gets himself locked up in jail, too. Now it’s up to the rookie cop (played by Alexis Louder) to prevent the hit job from taking place, in this R-rated action thriller from Open Road Films and Briarcliff Entertainment.

  1. Dear Evan Hansen

Friday, September 24

Premise: Universal’s musical about the misfit high school title character is adapted from the 2016 Broadway play, which won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Ben Platt, who won that year for Best Actor in a Musical, reprises his role in the film adaptation costarring Julianne Moore and Amy Adams. Stephen Chbosky of Wonder and The Perks of Being a Wallflower directs.
