Fall Movie Season: September 2010


Summer is coming to a close and now it’s almost Fall. So what movies can we expect the first month after Summer? My prediction is that this month’s potential box office hits will either come from a family film or a scary/horror movie. Chris Rodriguez’s latest film “Machete” and the latest installment (in 3D) of the “Resident Evil” franchise open this month as the Halloween precursor movies.

Family films “Alpha and Omega” and “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” seek to rule the box office and both are presented in 3D. “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” is based upon the novels by Kathryn Lasky.

Looking for more of a rom com or comedy film? Perhaps check out “Easy A” starring Emma Stone and Amanda Bynes. “The Romantics” starring Josh Duhamel and Katie Holmes and “You Again” which stars Kristen Bell and Jamie Lee Curtis.

A possible sleeper hit could be “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”, which stars Academy Award winner Michael Douglas reprising his Oscar winning role of Gordon Gekko. The film also stars Shia LaBeouf (“Transformers”) and Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan (“An Education”).

My spotlight picks of the month are “Waiting for Superman” and “The Town”. “Waiting for Superman” is a documentary which focuses on education in America and is directed by Academy Award winning director Davis Guggenheim (“An Inconvenient Truth”). Academy Award winner Ben Affleck (“Good Will Hunting”) directs and stars in “The Town” along with Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker”), Rebecca Hall (“The Prestige”) and Mad Men’s Jon Hamm.

Well that’s my September overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out this month and check back next month for more Fall Movie Season picks.

  1. The Wall Street movie sounds good and I believe lots of people are going to go watch it because of Shia LeBoeuf and M. Douglas. I’m also gonna watch The Town probably ’cause it just looks like the kind of movie I like.
