Denzel Washington‘s son, John David Washington, can be seen this month in The Creator, but Washington Sr hasn’t given up on action movies himself. In The Equalizer 3, the 68-year-old returns as Robert McCall, the retired government agent who was played by Edward Woodward in the 1980s TV series, and by Queen Latifah in the recent CBS reboot. Washington’s ultra-violent version of the character is now living quietly on Italy’s idyllic Amalfi Coast, but his sojourn ends when the Mafia target some of his new friends. Dakota Fanning co-stars as a CIA agent.  The movie was released in the UK on 30th  August, and on general release from 1 September.


Roger Ross Williams,known in the movie as  Cassandro, stars Gael García Bernal as Saúl Armendáriz, a gay Mexican wrestler who is paid to lose all of his matches in humiliating style. But at the end of the 1980s, his trainer (Roberta Colindrez) encourages him to develop an empowered new persona, Cassandro, a character who is feminine, flamboyant, and willing to defeat his opponents. He changes both his own life and lucha libre (Mexican wrestling) in the process. Glowing with García Bernal’s magnetism, Cassandro balances the triumphant exaltation of Armendáriz’s singular evolution as a trailblazer with the obvious, still not entirely eliminated partiality that made his trajectory so significant and ground-breaking in the first place. It will be released on 15 Sept in the US and the UK, and on 22 September on Prime Video.

  1. SAW X:

The Saw franchise began severing limbs and gouging flesh almost two decades ago in 2004. Its main villain, the serial-killing John « Jigsaw » Kramer (Tobin Bell), was killed off in 2006 in Saw III, but that didn’t stop him popping up in flashbacks throughout the series – and now at last, he is getting his main character moment. Saw X is a prequel-sequel, set between the events of Saw and Saw II. Kramer travels to a clinic in Mexico in search of a cure for his terminal cancer, but when he discovers that he is being scammed, he sets some typically elaborate traps to punish (or « reawaken », as he’d put it) everyone involved. The movie is to be on general release from 28 September.


It talks about a home invasion chiller with a twist, the cheerily titled No One Will Save You stars Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart) as a reclusive young woman who has to fend off an alien creature that sneaks into her house. Not much else has been revealed about the film, which is written and directed by Brian Duffield, but we do know that Dever won’t have taken long to learn her lines. « The film’s screenplay is almost entirely dialogue-free, » says Brendon Connolly in Film Stories. It’s going to be very action-driven, and it’s going to be a film that leans heavily on visual storytelling – on atmosphere, on shot design, on cutting, and on performance. » To be released on 22 Sept on Disney Channel.


Gareth Edwards, the director of Godzilla and Rogue One, returns with another science-fiction action epic. The Creator is set in a dystopian future in which humanity is engaged in a Terminator-like war against AI-controlled robots. Its hero, John David Washington, is a soldier on a mission to track down the enemy’s ultimate weapon, only to discover that the weapon is actually a robotic young girl. The dangers of artificial intelligence are a hot topic, both in real life and in the movies (such as Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One), but Edwards was inspired more by the film’s central dilemma. « It’s a really, really twisted father-child story, » he told Eric Eisenberg at Cinema blend, « in that basically this little kid to John David’s character is Hitler, and you can stop World War Two if you just kill this kid. So, his whole thing is he’s taking this kid on this journey ultimately to be executed, and it starts to make him question everything. » To be on a general release from 27 September.


In January 2021, numerous small-time investors bought shares in GameStop, an ailing video game shop, and made a fortune from the hedge fund managers who bet on the stock’s value plummeting. The investors’ unlikely guru was Keith Gill, a young financial analyst who offered his advice via amateurish YouTube videos and Reddit posts. His David-v-Goliath story was recounted in Ben Mezrich’s book, The Antisocial Network, and that in turn has been made into a comedy drama by Craig Gillespie, the director of Cruella and I, Tonya. Paul Dano stars as Gill, alongside Shailene Woodley as his wife, and Seth Rogen and Nick Offerman as two of the Wall Street tycoons he outsmarted. On a  general release by 15 September


My Big Fat Greek Wedding was a big fat phenomenon. Starting life as an autobiographical one-woman play, written by and starring Nia Vardalos, it went on to be one of the most profitable romantic comedies ever, with a budget of $5 million and a worldwide gross of $368.7 million. A spin-off sitcom and a belated sequel weren’t as successful, but maybe the threequel can recapture some of the initial magic. Once again, a Greek-American travel agent, Toula Portokalos (Vardalos), and her non-Greek husband (John Corbett), are dealing with her close-knit family, but this time they are in sunny Greece. After the death of Toula’s father (Michael Constantine, who died in 2021), the family visits the town where he grew up. To be  released  by  6 September.

  1. MR JIMMY:

There are Led Zeppelin fans and then there is Akio Sakurai, the subject of Peter Michael Dowd’s fascinating documentary, Mr Jimmy. A Japanese ex-kimono salesman, Sakurai has devoted his life to impersonating Led Zeppelin’s guitar god, Jimmy Page. But « impersonating » is putting it mildly. Sakurai doesn’t just want to approximate Page’s playing; he prides himself on being able to recreate exactly how Page sounded, looked and moved during every single recorded concert. His obsessiveness won the approval of Page himself, who caught one of his shows in a Tokyo bar in 2012, but when Sakurai moved to Los Angeles and tried to impose his stratospheric standards on a Led Zeppelin tribute band, his colleagues weren’t quite so impressed. The documentary is  trying to inspire others to follow an impossible dream of second-hand perfection. » To be released in the US on 1 September.


 A Haunting in Venice is a different matter. It’s adapted from a lesser-known Christie book called Hallowe’en Party, so its plot will be unfamiliar to most viewers, and Branagh has given it an unfamiliar tone, too. As usual, he has gathered a star-studded cast to play the suspects, including Michelle Yeoh, Tina Fey and Jamie Dornan (who played his younger self’s dad in his autobiographical Oscar nominee, Belfast), but he has added the spectral spookiness of a horror movie. Expected to be  general released from 13 September


It’s a colourful musical comedy that uses stop-motion animation (with some hand-drawn 2D animation thrown in) to visualise Leonardo da Vinci’s last years. Having upset the Pope (voiced by Matt Berry) in Italy, Leonardo (Stephen Fry) joins the French court where he is befriended by Princess Marguerite (Daisy Ridley), and is free to experiment with flying machines, mechanical lions and other contraptions. Co-directed by Pierre-Luc Granjon, this is the first feature film to be directed by Jim Capobianco, a Pixar veteran who co-wrote the Oscar-nominated Ratatouille screenplay. To be released on 15 September in the US.
