The start of term is swiftly approaching, but you've still got September to immerse yourself in Netflix without feeling bad about neglecting your studies. Make the most of it with this new batch of films coming to the platform this month.

1. Iron Man Trilogy - 1st September

Superhero fatigue is real, and maybe you've lost patience for keeping up with a 20 film long franchise, but with Coldplay's "The Scientist" playing, Netflix is taking us back to the start. Transport yourself back 10 years and remember why you love superheroes again. Maybe skip Iron Man 2 though.

2. The Mummy Trilogy - 1st September

Another full franchise to binge, The Mummy Returns and Tomb of the Dragon Emperor all arrive on Netflix today too! Take a trip down memory lane to some of the most iconic films of our childhood, and join Brendan Frasier and Rachel Weisz on their mythological monster-hunting shenanigans. Ain’t nobody got time for the Tom Cruise remake.

3. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping - 1st September

Brooklyn Nine Nine star Andy Samberg's parody popstar film is an absolute must-see for everyone who ever forked out for a cinema ticket to unironically watch the Justin Beiber movie. Lonely Island meets SNL in this inspired comedy.

4. Sierra Burgess is a Loser - 7th September

To All The Boys I've Loved Before unleashed a hunger in us all for new-age rom-coms. Sierra Burgess is here to keep the ball rolling. Oh, and it helps that Noah Centineo's in it too. A classic case of mistaken identity, romance, female friendship, and general high school shenanigans. We can't wait.

5. Film Stars don't die in Liverpool - 11th September

Annette Bening and Jamie Bell deliver career defining performances in this brilliantly moving drama about an ageing Hollywood star and an unlikely romance. It's intense, it's beautiful, you'll probably cry.

6. Burn After Reading - 12th September

A Coen brothers classic with a team up as old as time - George Clooney and Brad Pitt star alongside an all star cast including Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, John Malkovich and JK Simmons. 2 bumbling gym employees stumble across a CIA disc containing secret information and hijinks ensue.

7. American Honey - 20th September

It's a Sunday afternoon sort of film. 163 minutes long and worth every second, this dreamy roadtrip film follows Star, the hypnotic Sasha Lane, as she joins a travelling magazine selling crew travelling across the midwest. Co starring Shia LeBeouf and Riley Keough, this film is essential viewing for anyone looking to find themselves by losing themselves for a few hours.

8. Queen of Katwe - 25th September

Lupita Nyong'o and David Oyelowo star in this true story of Phiona Mutesi, a Ugandan chess prodigy whose whole life changes through the game. An inspirational film with a fantastic leading performance from newcomer Madina Nalwanga, it'll no doubt inspire you to download that chess app on your phone.

9. The Grand Budapest Hotel - 30th September

It really does contain everything you could want from a Wes Anderson film - beautiful pastel colours and pleasing symmetry, Ralph Fiennes as a legendary adventuring concierge, plots, prison, romance, a priceless painting, and a family fortune. It's a masterpiece.

10. Seven Psychopaths - 30th September

If you loved Three Billboards, Martin McDonagh's earlier work will really do it for you. Colin Farrel stars as a struggling screenwriter in this meta story, caught up in the LA criminal underworld after a dog kidnapping scheme targets the wrong guy. Michael Stuhlberg, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, and Woody Harrelson star in this hilariously clever dark comedy.
