While November’s “Breaking Dawn- Part 2” movie is already drawing plenty of attention, September appears to be packed with good possibilities.
“The Words” –
Opens Sept. 7
Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Irons, Zoé Saldana and Ben Barnes star in the new release being directed by Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal.
The PG-13 movie is about a desperate writer (Cooper) lucks upon a brilliant lost manuscript, which he proceeds to publish as his own, instantly becoming a literary sensation.
However, the party is cut short when the real author (Irons) confronts him.
It’s been a while since Cooper has played in a movie not about drinking and figuring out what happened the next day. It’s going to be interesting to see how he acts in a true dramatic film.
“The Perks of being a Wallflower”
– Opens Sept. 14
Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller play in the film directed by Stephen Chbosky.
“The Perks of being a Wallflower” was originally thought of when Chbosky was in college, but at the time all he thought of was the title, and the main character Charlie, which is now played on film by Logan Lerman. Lerman plays a painfully shy high school freshman.
While recovering from a break-up, Chbosky returned to writing, finishing the book and making Charlie the main focus again.
In the new film, Charlie is taken under his wing by two older students, Sam (Emma Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller).
While there isn’t a lot of information on this movie out yet, I would say the title alone is intriguing.
“Touble with The Curve” –
Opens Sept. 21
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the legend Clint Eastwood on the big screen, but the award-winning director and actor has teamed up with Justin Timberlake and Amy Adams in “Trouble with the Curve.”
Previews for the film look promising, with Adam’s playing Eastwood’s resentful daughter who loves baseball just as much as him, and now as an adult finds herself on the road with her angry father.
This is the first film in almost two decades that Eastwood has not acted and directed. The film is directed by Robert Lorenz.
Opens Sept. 28
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Jeff Daniels team up to play in “Looper,” directed by Rian Johnson.
In the film, Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, a looper forced to close his loop by killing his final target, which is himself, only 30 years older, which is where Willis fits into the film.
This movie has a chance because Gordon-Levitt seems to have an ability to choose good projects. He has definitely emerged as a top-notch actor since “50/50.” But based on the little information we have on this movie right now, it doesn’t sound like such a promising movie.
“Hotel Transvlvania” –
Opens Sept. 28
There is a movie for the kids this fall, with the opening of Adam Sandler’s latest. Previews are already garnering plenty of conversation with Adam Sandler playing Dracula in a hotel meant to make the “odd” feel comfortable.
The plan is working well in the hotel until a human (Andy Samberg) comes to stay.
The animated film also features Salena Gomez and Kevin James.
This is one that could either flop, or be an instant hit. We’ll have to wait and see.
