Spring clean, dust off the winter cobwebs, take back control of your entertainment choices at home by renting or buying digital content. September sees some of the biggest movies of the year hitting our screens, and it’s cheaper and more comfortable to watch new movies fresh from cinemas.
Highway to the danger zone! 36 years after Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell first buzzed the tower in the iconic F-14 Tomcat, Top Gun: Maverick proves that Australian audiences still feel the need for speed. Already the 3rd biggest film ever at the Australian box office, Tom Cruise’s instant classic can now be watched at home, even while it’s still in cinemas!
Incidentally it’s the first movie at the cinemas I watched with DRN’s Chief Unboxing Officer, what a father and son bonding moment we had over 2 hours 11 minutes. Can’t wait to break out the popcorn and soda at home to watch it again.
Another of the biggest films of the year, Thor: Love and Thunder, also drops this month. This latest MCU instalment sees Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi reunite after the success of Thor: Ragnarok, this time with the addition of Oscar-winner Christian Bale as supervillain Gorr the God Butcher.
One for the bookworms who devoured Delia Owen’s coming-of-age murder mystery, Where The Crawdad’s Sing is a gripping whodunnit that is definitely worth seeking out if you missed it in cinemas.
You can also catch Owen Wilson like you’ve never seen him before in the family friendly superhero adventure, Secret Headquarters.
In addition to these huge hits, there are also a slew of new movies hitting digital retailers in September. From the Mel Gibson starring action thriller Hot Seat, to the emotional WWII drama The Survivor by the Oscar-winning director of Rain Man.
Available across a variety of digital platforms including the Apple TV app, Google TV, Fetch, Foxtel Store, iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Telstra TV Box Office, YouTube and Microsoft Store, these top tier titles are dropping all throughout the month of September.
