Following Shang-Chi's record-setting start to the month of September, this week's batch of releases will look to carry that momentum by offering something different. Leading the way is director James Wan's newest horror offering, Malignant. As his first new original film in quite a while, longtime fans should be eagerly awaiting this movie. Joining it this week are the major releases The Card Counter from director Paul Schrader and After We Fell, the third installment in the After romance drama franchise, as well as a limited release. ~Paolo Maquiraya.
