The 5 Most Anticipated Movies Opening in September

September 22 is officially the end of Summer and the beginning of Fall, and if you’re an avid follower of the Hollywood trends, you know what that means. This is traditionally the dead zone for the movie industry, when families are either taking last-minute vacations or sending their kids back to school. That said, there are still a few notable titles to keep an eye out for, including an update on an ’80s action-horror classic and the latest entry in another contemporary horror franchise. Read on to see what RT readers and our fans across social media have deemed worthy of their attention in September.

The Conjuring appears to be the franchise that keeps on giving. Not content to produce two films of its own (with a third potentially on the way), it’s already spun off the Annabelle series, and we now get The Nun. This one takes the story back a little further in time to the 1950s, with a change of locale to Romania, where a Catholic priest (Demian Bichir) and a young novitiate (Taissa Farmiga, sister of The Conjuring‘s Vera) are sent to investigate the mysterious suicide of a nun at a monastery. If the trailers and controversial marketing campaign are any indication, this one should help reinvigorate your healthy fear of the jump scare.
