More Movies to Watch in September 2016: On Demand With ScreenCrush
Every single week, new movies open in theaters. Even if you go to the multiplex regularly, there’s just not enough time to see it all (at least without losing your job and family). So when you’re looking to catch up with some of the year’s best, where should you start?
That’s where our new series, On Demand With ScreenCrush, comes in. Every two weeks, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Matt Singer joins you to recommend three handpicked new titles you can watch at home right now from Movies on Demand. These are big new releases you won’t find streaming on Netflix, and the choices run the gamut from indie favorites, to major blockbusters, to insightful documentaries, and everything in between — all available with your remote.
In our fifth installment, we’re rounding up some of the coolest movies of 2016 you might have missed in theaters. We’ve got a great little horror thriller about a killer shark trying to eat Blake Lively (and her trusty sidekick, Steven Seagull). We’ve got a fun action comedy featuring Dwayne Johnson (and his trusty sidekick, Kevin Hart). And we’ve got a great indie coming-of-age movie about a young boy on the run in New Zealand (with his trusty sidekick, Sam Neill from Jurassic Park). No matter what kind of movie you want (featuring a trusty sidekick), you’ll find it on demand.
On Demand With ScreenCrush is a brand new original series about the world of movies. This is our fifth episode, but we’ll be back with a new show in two weeks. Plus, we want your feedback.
