Release Date: September 7, 2016

When will man learn that engineering a human-robot hybrid (humanoid, duh!) will never be a safe thing to do? Starring Kate Mara, Rose Leslie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Toby Jones, Paul Giamatti and many more, Morgan will make viewers wish that science would not go as far as creating life out of nothing at all.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

(Manila Millennial’s pick)

Release Date: September 14, 2016

A (not-so) romantic Hawaiian wedding awaits a clan who insist on bringing respectable dates! After placing an ad on Craigslist, two fun-loving siblings decide to pick two charming and seemingly normal waitresses. Once they arrive on the island, however, things turned out to be not-so-normal. With Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick, Adam Devine, and Aubrey Plaza in one movie, expect a lot of crazy scenes filled with hilarious twists and turns.

More trailers will be coming within the last two quarters of the year. For now, this is what we will be seeing this September.

Tell Me How I Die is a story about a group of people who took part in a drug experiment. Of course with drugs, side effects are always present and unfortunately for this one, the side effect involves seeing one’s death. Because of this, fear and paranoia grew stronger within the members of the experiment. Together, they try to outsmart and outlive the killer. Starring Nathan Kress, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Ryan Higa, Virignia Gardner, and Ethan Peck, Tell Me How I Die will be coming to theaters this September.

The Light Between Oceans
