Netflix: 15 Best Movies (And One TV Show) Leaving In September

A host of classic movies are leaving Netflix this month, although only one TV series. Here's everything you should try and tick off your watchlist.

Netflix movies leaving in September

A new month means that, once again, it’s time to bid farewell to some of Netflix’s best films and TV shows as the service clears out the catalog to make way for new series (and plenty of new original movies, as they start to put more time and money into bigger feature films).

There’s only one series leaving Netflix this September, though, so there’s still time to binge it before we bid farewell to Rules of Engagement - or, for superhero fans, time to squeeze in a last watch of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight before they also head off the streaming service (for a while, at least).

Check out some of the other films that you may also want to watch one more time, before Netflix bids them farewell.

15. 13 Going On 30

13 Going On 30

13 Going On 30 is a sweet rom-com starring Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner goes time traveling, as a dorky thirteen-year-old girl wishes herself into the perfect future life, complete with a hot boyfriend, a great job with a magazine, and an incredible apartment in New York. However, as she starts to really explore her new life, she learns that everything is not as perfect as it seems… and that what she really wants is to reconnect with the boy next door, who was her best friend before everything changed.

Leaving: September 1

14. Batman Begins

If the DCEU and Batfleck aren’t quite to your taste (or even if they are), enjoy a final watch of Batman Begins, and think fondly of a time before superhero movies existed in massive, multi-movie universes. The first installment in Christopher Nolan’s iconic Dark Knight trilogy, Batman Begins introduced Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, and launched one of the most popular Batman adaptations on the big screen.

Leaving: September 1

13. Dead Poets Society

Get the tissues ready for this tear-jerking classic about the ways that a teacher can truly inspire their students. The late Robin Williams stars in this 1989 film about a boy’s school, and the students who learn how to look at poetry- and life - in a whole new way thanks to a passionate teacher. A film that has inspired generations of viewers, Dead Poet’s Society is beautiful, every time you watch it.

Leaving: September 1

12. Ghostbusters

Bill Murry’s Groundhog Day may be arriving on Netflix this month, but Ghostbusters is leaving - which is sure to sadden plenty of Murray comedy fans. Enjoy the last chance to watch the bumbling team of paranormal investigators as they attempt to take on a supernatural presence much bigger than they should be able to handle… with hilarious results.

Leaving: September 1

11. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

The second installment of Disney’s blockbuster Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, Dead Man’s Chest features Johnny Depp at his Jack Sparrow best, cavorting through the Caribbean in search of a chest that contains the heart of none other than Davy Jones. Swashbuckling family fun - although the whole series is not currently available for a true binge session.

Leaving: September 1

10. Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall came to Netflix in March, and now it’s headed off again in September - clearly, the beach vibes of this island rom-com suited the summer! Starring Russell Brand, Jason Segal, Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell, it’s a star-studded romp through a terrible breakup, and a holiday that finds two exes stuck at the same paradise getaway.

Leaving: September 1

9. The Bucket List

Jack Nicholson in The Bucket List

Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman star in this sweet and inspirational film about two cancer patients who are sick of hospitals and decide to do some real living before they die. As the two work through a bucket list, they go skydiving, traveling, and indulge in the best food that the world has to offer. However, as they travel, they start to learn a little more about the regrets of their lives that can’t be solved with a simple plane ticket…

Leaving: September 1

8. The Dark Knight

It’s not just Batman Begins that we are saying goodbye to this September. The Dark Knight also heads off the streaming service at the start of the month, meaning that none of Christopher Nolan’s Batman adaptations will be around to watch in the fall. Superhero fans needn’t despair, though, as there are plenty of new superhero offerings on the way, including Marvel’s Black Panther.

Leaving: September 1
