The September movies that will get you over that Game of Thrones slump


So summer 2017 is rolling to a close but even more upsettingly, we're having to say goodbye to Westeros. Again.

Seriously though, what about that Game of Thrones climax? And what are we supposed to do in the aftermath?

Well we've got the solution in the form of our mini September round up – banish those post-Thrones blues with a look ahead to these must-see releases.

Patti Cake$

Released: 1st September

It went down a storm with our Unlimited members and this acclaimed hip hop drama is set to win over a wide audience from this Friday. Aussie newcomer Danielle Macdonald stuns as a young New Jersey girl pursuing her dream of a music career, refusing to let her tough upbringing and environment dictate her future.

It's a quintessential heartwarmer laced with grit and tough emotional insight, with a banging soundtrack. Plus, Raging Bull legend Cathy Moriarty is on hand as Patti's no-nonsense grandmother.

The Limehouse Golem

Released: 1st September

Who can resist a bit of Bill Nighy? This atmospheric period chiller casts him as brilliant Scotland Yard detective Inspector John Kildare who is investigating a series of gruesome deaths in 19th century London. Is a creature from folklore responsible?

Adapted from Peter Ackroyd's 1994 murder mystery novel Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem, the movie also features rising British stars Douglas Booth and Olivia Cooke.


Released: 8th September

Hate clowns? Best look away now. Love being scared? Then you've come to the right place. Stephen King's doorstop 1986 tome unleashed one of his most frightening creations upon the world in the form of shape-shifting entity Pennywise, and now the infamous clown makes his big-screen debut.

Bill Skarsgard chills the blood as the eponymous villain under the direction of Mama filmmaker Andres Muschietti. Meanwhile the talented young ensemble making up the story's Losers Club includes the likes of Finn Wolfhard from Stranger Things. Critical reactions have been very positive – there are many reasons to expect great things.

American Assassin

Released: 14th September

After a blast of violent action? Then Maze Runner actor Dylan O'Brien acts as your guide through the morally murky world of CIA black ops.

O'Brien plays Mitch Rapp in this adaptation of Vince Flynn's bestselling 2010 novel, with Spider-Man: Homecoming's Michael Keaton providing juicy support as his ambiguous mentor.


Released: 15th September

Pennywise isn't the only monster stalking the big screen this autumn. Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream director Darren Aronofsky has lined up a nerve-shredding tale of psychological angst that is all-the-more intriguing for how mysterious it is.

All we know so far is that Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem are a seemingly happily married couple whose abode is invaded by a sinister Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer. The trailer promises all kinds of Satanic-looking imagery and explosive terror – an area in which Aronofsky has specialised in the past.

Victoria and Abdul

Released: 15th September

It's not all about horror and action this month. Expect sweeping historical prestige from director Stephen Frears in this fact-based drama, one centred on the ageing Queen Victoria's friendship with her Indian manservant Abdul Karim.

This has got some heavyweight talent behind it: not only is Philomena and The Queen director Frears behind the camera but it also sees the esteemed Judi Dench returning to one of her signature roles following 1997's acclaimed Mrs. Brown.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Released: 20th September

Here's something to blast away those autumn cobwebs. Matthew Vaughn's follow-up to his smash-hit 2015 spy movie reunites us with the immaculately tailored Kingsman, who this time must team with their American counterparts the Statesman to take down a nefarious villain.

Taron Egerton steps back up to the plate as Eggsy with Colin Firth returning as fan-favourite Harry Hart. Meanwhile the talented cast has swelled exponentially with Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry and Julianne Moore all getting involved. It'll soon be time to get those old Brogues out again.

Goodbye Christopher Robin

Released: 29th September

Something far more family-friendly arrives with this nostalgic and heartfelt drama exploring the literary creation of children's classic, Winnie the Pooh.

Star Wars and Brooklyn actor Domhnall Gleeson adds another impressive turn to his roster as author A.A. Milne whilst Suicide Squad's Margot Robbie plays his devoted wife, Daphne. Expect laughs and tears aplenty.
