Summer is over, and autumn is upon us, which means many new movies will be coming to the streaming platform for the coming season. Here are the best movies to screen in September.
Although released in June, “Luca” is an exhilarating story of adventure, friendship and acceptance. Taking place on the Italian Riviera, Luca goes on adventures with his friends, is filled with bikes, and eats spaghetti constantly while hiding their secrets as sea monsters. “Luca” was inspired by the experience of director Enrico Casarosa while growing up in Genoa with his best friend, Alberto. The film stars Jacob Tremblay, Jack Dylan Grazer, Maya Rudolph and Jim Gaffigan. “Luca” is currently airing on Disney Plus.
If you want to get ready for Latino Heritage Month, which begins Sept. 15, “Vivo” airs on Netflix. This family-friendly musical, starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Gloria Estefan, Zoe Saldana and Michael Rooker, tells the story of a kinkajou who goes on a journey to deliver a song to an old friend’s lover. Held in Miami and Cuba, the musical features salsa music and new original songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda, filled with vibrant and stunning locations.
Marvel’s “Black Widow” premiered in theaters in June, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great autumn movie. Still on Premiere Access at Disney Plus, “Black Widow” is full of shocking action, adventure, and comedy. Scarlett Johansson repeats her role as Natasha Romanoff to face a dangerous conspiracy from her past. Florence Pugh, David Harbor and Rachel Weisz along with Johansson as family members found the non -biological and dysfunctional Natasha who helped the Avenger bring down the Red Room. “Black Widow” aired on Disney Plus.
“Edge of Seventeen”
Woody Harrelson, Hailee Steinfeld and Haley Lu Richardson star in this film that will grace theaters in the fall of 2016. Steinfeld plays Nadine, a high school junior who finds it difficult to attend school, especially when she finds out her best friend (Haley Lu Richardson) is dating her “perfect” sister, causing Nadine to feel more isolated than usual. A number of teenagers can relate to Nadine – perhaps not with the same experience – but with the struggle of finding their place in school or with themselves, and how good it is to sometimes feel lost. “Edge of Seventeen” aired on Netflix.
“Ouija: The Origin of Evil”
If you want to get into the Halloween spirit earlier, this paranormal movie will be your focus. Directed by Stiles White, this 2016 supernatural horror film is the sequel to the 2014 film “Ouija.” “Ouija” stars Lin Shaye, Olivia Cooke, and Daren Kagasoff, tells the story of a teenager and a group of his friends using an Ouija board to summon their fallen friend, instead of summoning a creature far more evil than they believe.
In her sequel, “Ouija: Origin of Evil,” a widowed mother who runs a seasonal fraud business inadvertently invites a terrifying evil spirit into her home, which later has her youngest daughter. The family then has to face an unbelievable fear to save him and send the demonic spirit back to the other side. The film stars Kate Siegel, Henry Thomas and Elizabeth Reaser, who have also collaborated on “The Haunting of Hill House” and “The Haunting of Bly Manor.” “Ouija: Origin of Evil” is currently airing on HBO Max.
“The Road to Fear”
The original Netflix trilogy “Fear Street” is really scary to watch. This three -part horror film is heartbreaking and filled with fear, perfect for the early Halloween spirit. Loosely based on the Goosebumps book series, the “Fear Street” trilogy tells the story of a curse mentioned in the town of Shadyside, where a girl, her sister and their friend must try and stop Sarah Fier, an ancient witch, from killing them by breaking the curse she set in their city.
“Fear Street” is divided into three parts to tell the story of not just the year -round killers in Shadyside, but how they relate to Sarah Fier. The first part took place in 1996, the second part in the summer of 1978 and the third part in 1666.
