September 2019 Movies to See

2019 Motion Picture Slate: Mark your calendars for movies to see in 2019 including features from Disney, Marvel, Warner Bros. Pictures. 20th Century Fox, DreamWorks, Universal Pictures and Paramount Pictures. -

August has been filled with all kinds of excellent options for your movie-viewing pleasure, so it’s possible you didn’t hear the collective gasp that happened last week. Disney/Marvel and Sony threw us the movie version of a curve ball when they announced that Spider-Man: Far From Home would likely be the last Spider-Man movie that incorporated the super hero into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Okay, they didn’t say that in so many words, but that’s the gist of their failure to extend the agreement that welcomed him into this realm in the first place. What this does is emphasize the importance of not taking the movie-going experience for granted. 

While the list of September movies releasing nationwide isn’t quite as robust as the list of August movie releases, you’ll find a variety of quality titles from Universal Pictures, Lionsgate, Warner Bros. Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Amazon Studios, Focus Features and STX Entertainment.

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”

With the school year now under way, you’ll need to either use non-school time wisely to see movies as a family OR simply go to the movies while the kids are in school! That’s what we plan to do!

Will you see one of these September releases or will you catch an August one that you missed?

  1. I definitely want to see IT Chapter 2. I watched the first and really liked it.
    I watched Ready or Not in theater on Monday night. Didn’t care for it. I like scary movies but draw the line at sacrilegious.

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Ready or Not, Terra. I actually wanted to get to the theater to see that one, but sounds like it can wait until it’s on Netflix. 🙂
