    With big thanks to Pablo for the research on this info...

    September 2010 premieres:


    Starz Highlights:
    Starz Saturday Premieres: Did You Hear About the Morgans, Dear John, and Armored.
    • 9/4 - Zombieland (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin)
    • 9/11 - Did You Hear About the Morgans (Hugh Grant, Sarah Jessica Parker)
    • 9/18 - Dear John (Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, Richard Jenkins)
    • 9/25 - Armored (Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne)

    Starz also has the return of their original stand-up comedy series, "Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand-up". Returns on Fridays beginning September 10. To get ready for the new season, there will be a marathon from Season 4 of the series airing on Thursday, September 9 featuring four back-to-back episodes starting at 11PM (east).

    For some reason I'm thinking that Starz could have done a better job of picking what to premiere on 9/11, but perhaps that's just me.

    Encore Highlights: a Labor Day Marathon on Monday, September 6th called "When Sequels Attack II" featuring the sequels to Rambo, Die Hard, Rush Hour, The Karate Kid, American Pie, Police Academy and others. There's also a 10-film spotlight on recent Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges.


    HBO
    Touted via HBO's August downloadable guide: HBO original series Boardwalk Empire (premieres Sunday, 9/19/2010, 9PM east) with returners Bored to Death and Eastbound & Down. Absolutely NO movie premieres touted in the "Coming in ..." next month part of the downloadable guide info. It could be a slim month at HBO :(
    • 9/4 - A Perfect Getaway (Tim Olyphant, Milla Jovovich, Kiele Sanchez, Steve Zahn) 8PM
    • 9/11 - Couples Retreat (Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Faizon Love, Kristin Davis, Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell, Jean Reno) 8PM
    • 9/11 - Boxing After Dark 10PM
    • 9/18 - Love Happens (Aaron Eckhart, Jennifer Anniston, Dan Fogler, Judy Greer, Joe Anderson, John Carroll Lynch, Martin Sheen)
    • 9/25 - HBO original series: Boardwalk Empire premieres at 9PM (east). Cast includes: Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt, Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon (whose picture at HBO's website looks an awful like he might have been separated at birth with Leonardo Dicaprio), Dabney Coleman (whose picture at HBO looks more like Ben Stein), Shea Whigham, Anthony Laciura, Stephen Graham, Aleksa Palladino, Michael Stuhbarg, Vincent Piazza, Paz de la Huerta, Paul Sparks, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Gretchen Mol. Created by (Sopranos writer) Terence Winter, with Martin Scorsese, and Mark Wahlberg showing Executive Producer credits (and Scorsese carrying a Director credit). Set in Atlantic City (New Jersey) at the dawn of prohibition. Politics and corruption will be the main stories of this drama series.
    • 9/25 - Up in the Air (George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick and Danny McBride)

    Comments on premiering films TBA


    Cinemax
    Touted via August downloadable guide: Sherlock Holmes and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
    • 9/4 - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Daniel Radcliffe, Michael Gambon, Dave Legeno)
    • 9/11 - Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams)
    • 9/18 - Cirgue du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (John C. Reilly, Josh Hutcherson, Chris Massoglia, Jessica Carlson, Michael Cerveris)
    • 9/25 - Ninja Assassin (Rain, Naomie Harris, Ben Miles)

    Comments on premiering films TBA


    Showtime
    Highlight information to come (hopefully)
    • 9/4 - Title to come ()
    • 9/11 - Everybody's Fine (Robert De Niro, Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale)
    • 9/18 - Title to come ()
    • 9/25 - The Hurt Locker (Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty)

    Ooooooh, Academy Award type film time for Showtime. That's a little surprising, but great news for Showtime fans that haven't yet seen The Hurt Locker. I count myself as one that hasn't yet seen the film, but this might present the opportunity for me.


    The Movie Channel
    It looks like The Movie Channel will be continuing their Splatterday on Saturdays line-up of horror themed films (double feature of horror themed movies on Saturday nites actually).
    (If you aren't a horror fan then it seems that The Movie Channel is going to have slim pickin's for you :()


    Some epix news (from The Futon Critic):
    On September 18, EPIX will turn to Louis C.K., writer, director, editor and star of the critically acclaimed FX series Louie, for the television premiere of the unique and dynamic live stand-up concert film Louis C.K.: Hilarious.

    Thanks again Pablo, Phrelin and others for helping to get this info together!

    Funny you single that one out... I watched a rental of same and put up my review of that one at Amazon ages ago. It was ok (you'd see that in the review I linked), but I'm not sure I'd go much farther than that.

    It'll be interesting to see what HBO and Showtime will have for the month (as they get their schedules up...)

    And as soon as I had finished noting that it could be a slim month at HBO for movie premieres I was able to find the information for the first two weekends (sorry, they still don't have the 3rd or 4th weekend's information available as I write this...)

    Couples Retreat looks amusing. I could be wrong but A Perfect Getaway already premiered elsewhere earlier.

    Updated with additional information on Starz and Encore. Still can't see information for later part of September for HBO.

    If anyone finds information on new content for Epix or Showtime, please speak up. Neither are good about making their new content (with some minor exceptions) well known.

    1) 9 and 500 days were on Cinemax in August, not HBO (according to the HBO guide)
    2) They are listed as HBO Premieres on Dish.
    3) Sorry I wasted your time.

    A clever, offbeat romantic comedy, 500 Days of Summer is refreshingly honest and utterly charming.
    Although its story is perhaps too familiar and less complex than some might wish, 9 is visually spectacular, and director Shane Acker's attention to detail succeeds in drawing viewers into the film's universe.
    Some may find its dark tone and slender narrative off-putting, but Spike Jonze's heartfelt adaptation of the classic children's book where the wild things are is as beautiful as it is uncompromising.
