Major Studio Releases*:

The month of September is anchored by the third highest-grossing film of all time, the mega-hit "Marvel's The Avengers" from writer and director Joss Whedon, featuring a star-studded cast.  Fans of Whedon are also treated to another of his films this month, "The Cabin in the Woods."  Plus, MOD premieres extended versions of a couple of hit films with footage you couldn't see in theaters - the unrated version of "The Five-Year Engagement," and "Snow White & the Huntsmen (Extended)."   Also, Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, two of the grandes-dames of the theatre, star in "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel." Plus, the romantic comedy "What to Expect When You're Expecting" is sure to be a big draw on MOD.
