  • ‘Killer Joe’
  • Starring: Matthew McConaughey,
  • Emile Hirsch
  • Directed by: William Friedkin
  • Rated: NC-17

With the summer film season coming to a close, the box office winner will be “The Avengers” with “The Dark Knight Rises” a close second; both earned $100 million-plus. Already trailers for fall and holiday season movies are popping up in theaters, signaling that it’s time to look ahead.


September has never been a strong month for movie openings. Vacations end, school starts and the box office take goes down. The releases for September are usually weak, with one huge exception for 2012.
