Happy Wednesday Storytellers! Summer is winding down everywhere (except here in Texas–it’s still the devil’s front porch out here) and school is officially back in session! I hope everyone’s classes are going good and you are seriously digging the coursework and your teachers! For all my storytellers who are no longer in school (praise bless), I hope your Air Conditioners are treating you well and the ice cream consumption is a solid 10/10!
September seems to be a pretty chill month in my anticipated lists with only a few that I am really looking forward to seeing. Nonetheless! Grab your calendars and some popcorn folks; and lets look at all the exciting films that will be gracing our cinema’s come this September!
The Goldfinch (September 13th)
Directed: John Crowley
Starring: Nicole Kidman, Finn Wolfhard, Sarah Paulson, Ansel Elgort
A boy in New York is taken in by a wealthy Upper East Side family after his mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Based of the acclaimed novel, I’m excited to delve into this story both in the written medium as well as on the big screen! Plus I’m dying to see Ansel Elgort acting range and am hoping that this will show how diverse I think he is!
Hustlers (September 13th)
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Crime, Thriller
Directed: Lorene Scafaria
Starring: Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer
Inspired by the viral New York Magazine article, Hustlers follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients.
Strippers getting revenge and Cardi B–enough said.
Abominable (September 27th)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Directed: Jill Culton, Todd Wilderman
Starring: Albert Tsai, Chloe Bennet, Sarah Paulson, Eddie Izzard
When teenage Yi encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin and Peng , name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish, a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara to help Everest get home.
THIS TRAILER GIVES ME ALL THE FEELS! The Yeti is adorable and I high key would like one to live with me for forever so we can be best friends and he can make giant slices of pizza and fruit so food would last longer and I wouldn’t spend so much on things. Wow, I have thought this thing through way too much…
Ad Astra (Sept. 20) | 21 Redemption (Sept. 27) | Downton Abbey (Sept. 20) | Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice (Sept. 6)
