new movies in theaters on September 17th 2010

This might be the best week of new movie releases since I began writing this weekly post over five months ago. There are at least 5 movies here that I consider must-sees.

Will one of these movies will become your favorite film of all-time?

The Townwatch the trailer

Critics are making this out to be another gem of a movie from director Ben Affleck. In my opinion, the world is a better place when Ben’s around.

Devilwatch the trailer

This movie has so much going against it (not screened for critics and Shyamalan to name but a couple) but I’ll be damned if this isn’t the flick I’m most looking forward to this month. The trailer is a ton of fun and at 80 minutes with credits, it should at least go by fast.

Easy Awatch the trailer

I initially dismissed this modern retelling of The Scarlet Letter as some silly teen junk but it’s been getting very solid reviews. Plus, Emma Stone is super cute.

Never Let Me Gowatch the trailer

The Kazuo Ishiguro novel this movie is based on is one of the best I’ve ever read. It’s getting mixed reviews but all the critiques make it seem like it’s exactly the way I would want it put to film.

Edward Norton in a movie about pot as a set of polar-opposite twins. I don’t see how it can be anything but stellar.

    Definitely the most promising week of new releases in awhile. I’ve been pumped for Easy A since the first trailer, and with the combined talents of Amanda Bynes, Stanley Tucci, and Lisa Kudrow, it should pretty much be awesome.

    The Town has definitely become a movie I’ve grown more and more excited for as I’ve seen/heard more about it. Never Let Me Go is something I’ll watch because of it’s Oscar prospects, and Mulligan is awesome (Go watch An Education!).

    Devil is something that I think looks cool, but will probably just get a DVD watch for me. Same with Catfish. Too many good releases this week and next week (I’ll watch anything with Sigourney Weaver or Betty White in it, so You Again is in my wheelhouse).
