6 Flicks Picks for September 2017 Movie Release Schedule

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, September 1, 2017
Welcome to another edition of 6 Flicks Picks, wherein I list all of the upcoming films that are scheduled to be released in the United States for the month which is about to begin and break down which ones I'll be watching in theaters, which ones I'll wait to rent at home, and which ones I'll be skipping out on entirely. After going through the list, I'll choose which six films stand out to me as the ones I want to see the most, even if there are more or less than six that interest me.

Note: The list below is based primarily off the expanded nationwide USA release dates on IMDB as well as some other random outlets if possible, so some information may be different. If I am missing some of the limited releases or the dates conflict in some fashion, please let me know in the comments below and any adjustments and corrections will be made!

Without further ado, another new month means another new set of films, so what's coming soon to theaters in September 2017?

Which films make the cut?

6. Battle of the Sexes — I almost gave this spot to It, but I don't like horror movies and I think if push came to shove, I'd go with this one because I do have a horror-esque movie on this list already at #5. Battle of the Sexes looks like it's a bit of Oscar bait, but for not being interested at all in the history of this, nor tennis in general, the trailer had me thinking maybe.

5. Flatliners — Admittedly, I'd be more interested in this is if were more of a drama and less of a thriller, but the premise seems really cool and I'm curious how they try to explain the afterlife stuff.

4. American Assassin — I like Dylan O'Brien and Michael Keaton and I had actually written this movie down on my phone after seeing a trailer for it a few months back. This is definitely more of a rent later than a theater watch, but I still think it could be really solid.

3. American Made — Just like the aforementioned movie, this is something I wrote down in my phone at the theater when the trailer came on. I instantly knew it would be something that could be up my alley and I'm glad to see Tom Cruise doing something a little different.

2. The Lego Ninjago Movie — While I don't love the first movie as much as most people, I looooooved The Lego Batman Movie. I have no attachment to this Ninjago thing, nor do I even know what it is, but I'll give it a shot.

1. Kingsman: The Golden Circle — Just take my money already.
