Six great movie premieres for September

Now that the University just started, I’m sure you are thinking about how you can relax as soon as possible. Here’s our recommendation.

It: Chapter Two

After the success of the first part the sequence of the american horror has finally arrived. The story starts twenty-seven years after the first movie, when the Losers Club defeated Pennywise. The children have grown up, they moved and gone on their separate ways, while a strange phone call got the team together again. Chapter Two is based on the novel of Stephen King too. And besides, the actors are also much stronger (compared to films in the same genre) with such great names as James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, or even the young rising Finn Wolfhard.

Trouble

At first sight this film might seem familiar. The feeling can come from the fact that it resembles the appearance of the movie The Secret Life of Pets. But don’t let that thought influence us, because it is hardly similar to the foregoing one in the content and quality of the cartoon. Meaning that Trouble have became a great animated cartoon. According to the story Trouble, who’s a little bit troublesome laze around happily in every minute of he’s life. But one day the spoiled doggie’s beloved owner dies, and the dog and it’s new owner inherits his goods and chattels. At this point Trouble’s life became more and more out of hand, because his new family isn’t nice at all, but they are more money-grubbing. The doggie decides to escape.

Ad Astra

Probably you remember that in past years „astronaut” movies were really popular such as Gravity, Interstellar, Alien or Passangers. So the question is, can the next astronaut movie give us something new? The answer is: based on the trailer and the story it can. Shortly the plot: Roy, the astronaut sets out to traverse the Solar System and find out the truth about his father, who has been disappeared in space for 20 years. During his travel, he finds out secrets that can change the survival of humanity and its regular place in the cosmos. The main character Roy (Brad Pitt) first seem to be a very typical protagonist, but the director said the character still has a lot under the surface.
