Movie theatres in Canada are beginning to open their doors. For some, this might be a welcome development. Others might not feel comfortable attending a night out yet.
For those that wish to keep their movie nights at home, here is some fresh streaming content to check out this September.
I'm thinking of Ending Things - September 4
Based on Iain Reid's acclaimed novel of the same name, this film follows of a young women (Jessie Buckley) who travels with her new boyfriend to his parents' secluded farm. After arriving, she comes to question everything she thought she knew about him, and herself.
Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich) has written some incredibly unique films in his career. This story is on the thriller/horror side of the equation, so I'm excited to see how he tackles the adaptation. Kaufman is also the director for the film.
The Devil All the Time - September 16
After watching the trailer for this film, I can confidently say that I have no idea what it's about, but I'm on board. The synopsis states, "Sinister characters converge around a young man devoted to protecting those he loves in a postwar backwoods town teeming with corruptions and brutality."
The synopsis for the film probably doesn't make the plot any more straightforward. However, the cast is comprised of Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Riley Keough, Haley Bennett, Jason Clarke, and Bill Skarsgard (without the clown makeup). So I have high hopes.
Enola Holmes - September 23
Netflix decided to end their month of original movies with a lighter, more family-friendly film. Enola Holmes, Sherlock Holmes' teen sister sets off to find their missing mother.
Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) lands her first leading role with Henry Cavill playing Sherlock. This is another book adaptation from the Nancy Springer novel of the same name.
The Boys Season 2 - September 4
The second season of Amazon's critically acclaimed original series drops early in September. The Boys takes place in a world where superheroes abuse their powers rather than use them for good and "The Boys" who embark on a journey to expose and destroy them.
The Boys isn't your average superhero show. It's gory and over the top, but also provides non-stop entertainment. Season 2 has already received praise from critics and is said to dive deeper into the complex characters from the first season.
Utopia Season 1 - September 25
Amazon is coming out with another original TV series, this one created by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Widows). Utopia centers on a group of comic book fans who meet online and bond over their obsession of a comic called, "Utopia." Together they unearth hidden meanings within the pages of the comic, discovering threats to humanity.
Utopia seems like a big change from Flynn's usual body of work, but they cast Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute from the Office) so it has my attention.
Mulan - September 4
A live-action remake of the beloved Disney animated film, Mulan is the story of a young Chinese maiden who disguises herself as a male warrior in order to save her father.
Although Mulan is going straight to Disney+ instead of a normal theatrical release, it isn't entirely included with the service. Mulan will cost $34.99 in additional to the regular subscription fee. It appears that Mulan will eventually be included with a regular Disney+ subscription, but there is no timeline for when that will occur.
All of these titles are available to stream next month. Stream on without worry, all CityWest Quantum Internet packages come with the security of no data caps.
