6 Flicks Picks for September 2018 Movie Release Schedule

Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, September 1, 2018
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 2018?

Which films make the cut?

6. A Simple Favor —Admittedly, I'm curious what this is all about.

5. Love Gilda — Gilda Radner wasn't one of my favorite SNL cast members, but this is at least about SNL and not about something like a period piece drama about an 1800s candlemaker or something lame.

4. Peppermint — Meh, generic action. It's mindless and there might be a few decent set pieces.

3. Smallfoot — Could be cute. I don't know. The preview wasn't bad that I had seen before Incredibles 2.

2. Night School — Maybe with AMC A-List, it'll get a few laughs out of me.

1. The Predator — I liked the original.
