A Week in the Woods (Premieres Wednesday, Sept. 2): Don’t brush off this film just because it’s about old people – Hollywood veterans Robert Redford and Nick Nolte take the view on an adventure full of fun and laughs in this dramedy about a newly-retired travel writer, Bill Bryson (Redford) who decides that the best way to celebrate his retirement and his return to America after two decades is to hike the Appalachian Trail with his old friend Stephen Katz (Nolte), who always seems to find himself in trouble. This film, directed by Emmy-nominee Ken Kwapis (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), looks to be entertaining for audience members of all ages.

Creep (Premieres Wednesday, Sept. 2) For all the horror fans out there looking to wallow in the recent death of Wes Craven, Creep is the film for you. Starring Patrick Brice, who also serves as writer and director of the film, a videographer named Aaron (Brice) answers a Craigslist ad for $1,000 for a day’s worth of work. What the work entails, exactly, isn’t immediately known, but once he meets the earnest and dedicated Josef (Mark Duplass, who also co-wrote the film with Brice), the man who put up the ad, Aaron learns that appearances can be deceiving and things aren’t always what they seem.

The Transporter Refueled (Premieres Friday, Sept. 4): Taking place in the south of France, Frank Martin (played by Game of Thrones’ Ed Skrein) is a former special-ops mercenary turned deliverer of packages to unknown, suspicious characters. That is, until he is approached by a clever femme fatale named Anna (played by French actress Loan Chabanol) and her three sidekicks about attempting the biggest bank heist of the century in an effort to exact revenge on a Russian kingpin. From the producers of the Taken trilogy and Lucy, this film is sure to be blockbuster, despite the fact the Jason Statham won’t be making an appearance for the first time in the history of the film series.

Before We Go (Premieres Friday, Sept. 4) As if seeing Chris Evans on screen wasn’t enough, fans can also check out his directorial debut in this romantic dramedy. Filmed in the style of a documentary, a street musician (Evans) tries to help a woman who has missed her train (played by She’s Out of My League actress Alice Eve) attempt to get home before her husband. Thrust into this unexpected adventure, the two go from complete strangers to trusted confidants in this tearjerker.
