3. “Bridget Jones’s Baby” (Sept. 16)
More than a decade later, Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth will return to their original roles in this sequel to 2004’s “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.” Now in her 40s and single, Bridget Jones finds herself in a predicament when she discovers she is pregnant but doesn’t know who the father is.
4. “Snowden” (Sept. 19)
Directed by the legendary Oliver Stone, “Snowden” features an ensemble cast which includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto, Scott Eastwood, Timothy Olyphant, Nicolas Cage and more. Stone reportedly did such a good job at telling Snowden’s story that according to The Hollywood Reporter, one early viewer of the film said, “What he did that’s so brilliant is, he gave this kid’s whole back story, so you really like him.”
5. “The Magnificent Seven” (Sept. 23)
If any September movie release is sure to be a hit, it’s “The Magnificent Seven.” Directed by Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day,” “Shooter”), the remake of the 1960 film of the same name stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio and more.
6. “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” (Sept. 30)
Based on the novel which tells the tale of a boy who follows clues that lead him to an abandoned orphanage, there was no better person to direct this film than Tim Burton. The film stars Eva Green, Chris O’Dowd, Samuel L. Jackson and Allison Janney.
7. “Storks” (Sept. 30)
Storks are known for delivering babies but in “Storks,” the birds are all about delivering packages. That is until Junior (Andy Samberg ) activates the Baby Making Machine and produces a baby. Junior and Tulip (Katie Crown) must then deliver the baby.
