The JoBlo.com 2013 Fall Preview

With Labor Day weekend having come and gone, the summer of 2013 is officially in the books. We now begin the fall movie season. For my money, this is the best movie-going season of them all, as it's during the fourth quarter (which technically kicks off in October) that all the studios release their “prestige” movies, and Oscar contenders. This week, I'll be heading off to the Toronto International Film Fest to get an early look at some of this year's big contenders, and I'll be posting my reviews throughout the fest.

Still, it's not all academy bait. The fall season is also loaded with genre fare, and more than a few massive tent-pole movies that are sure to get every kind of film buff more than a little excited. The following is our list of the most heavily anticipated movies of the season.

What Fall movie are you most ramped up for? Strikeback below!

20. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

OK- so I know THE HUNGER GAMES is a little tweenish, but I have to admit, the first movie wasn't half bad. I still haven't read the books, but I really liked Jennifer Lawrence in her star-making part as Katniss, and I'm looking forward to this Francis Lawrence (I AM LEGEND)- directed follow-up, which will likely turn out to be one of the biggest financial hits of the year. Hopefully it'll improve on it's predecessor and be the anti-TWILIGHT a lot of it's fans have been claiming it is.

19. Ender's Game

Thanks to Orson Scott Card's diarrhea of the mouth- with his rampant homophobia just about pissing everyone off- the long-awaited ENDER'S GAME adaptation hits theaters this fall under a nasty cloud. That said, Card's books have entertained generations of readers, and while he may well be a homophobic jerk, that doesn't change the fact that his novel has become a classic. Gavin Hood, who last directed the execrable X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE is at the helm, with Harrison Ford and HUGO's Asa Butterfield starring. The early buzz is pretty decent.

18. Out of the Furnace

The great Christian Bale has two buzzy Oscar hopefuls coming out this fall, with OUT OF THE FURNACE being the first to hit theaters. A gritty, revenge drama directed by Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART), this stars Bale as an ex-con who's drawn into his depressed Mill Town's underworld in order to avenge his brother (Casey Affleck). Sounds gritty and cool.

17. Jackass: Bad Grandpa

I'm an unapologetic JACKASS fan. While I was never big on the show, I had a ball with the three big-screen JACKASS movies, and this vehicle, which spins off Johnny Knoxville's obnoxious Grandpa character into his own film, should be fun. The trailers, which promise lots of hidden camera gags tied together by a loose plot, are very funny, so here's hoping this is going to be a blast.

16. Insidious: Chapter 2

INSIDIOUS was a box office sleeper back in 2011, with James Wan's spooky, POLTERGEIST-style thriller, delivering enough thrills and chills that fans were begging for a follow-up. Coming off this summer's smash hit, THE CONJURING, and primed to helm the next FAST & FURIOUS installment, Wan's suddenly rocketed to the A-list, and fans are expecting great things from what he's saying just may be his last ever horror film.

15. 12 Years a Slave

By the time this article runs on JoBlo.com, I will have hopefully seen Steve McQueen's follow-up to SHAME, with this being the true story of a free black man who was made a slave in the pre-civil way south. Coming off triumphant screenings at Venice and Telluride, star Chiwetel Ejiofor is being tipped as an early front-runner for Best Actor at this year's Oscars. One thing's for certain: if it's a McQueen movie, it'll be powerful and controversial.

14. Escape Plan

It's FINALLY here, the action movie fans have been dreaming of since the 1980's. After years of promises, rumors and a couple teases (thanks to EXPENDABLES 2) Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are finally going mano-a-mano in a big action team up. Formerly titled THE TOMB (a way better title) ESCAPE PLAN sees Sly and Arnie as two inmates in a futuristic prison, who plan a prison break. Sounds cool, and the buzz coming out of the early comic con screening has been good.

13. 47 Ronin

Carl Erik Rinsch's 47 RONIN is one of the more troubled projects to get a release this fall. It originally began shooting way back in March 2011, but reshoots and trouble on the set has led to delay after delay and a budget that hovers somewhere around $175-200 million. This is Keanu Reeves' first big scale action movie in awhile, and being a major fan of the man both as an actor and a human being, I hope it's worth the wait. The early trailers are intriguing.

12. Jack Ryan

Kenneth Branagh's reboot of the JACK RYAN series (based on Tom Clancy's books) is an exciting prospect, but so far, there's been so little buzz surrounding it, I'm wondering if it's actually going to make it's Christmas release date, or if it'll be pushed to Spring. Whatever the case, once it finally does see the light of day, there's a lot riding on it, with Paramount obviously hoping for the beginning of a viable new franchise for leading man Chris Pine. We'll see.

11. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

OK, so at first I wasn't terribly enthused about Ben Stiller doing a remake of the 1947 Danny Kaye movie, THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY. It's been one of those projects seemingly every comedic leading man has been attached to at some point. I get why it's an appealing concept, with the everyman hero daydreaming about becoming a hero to win the woman he loves. However, I must admit I was blown away by the first trailer, which looks positively epic. Who would have thought that a Ben Stiller comedy would be tipped as the next LIFE OF PI, and perhaps even an Oscar contender?

10. Machete Kills

Truth be told, I didn't really care for the first MACHETE. The fake trailer before GRINDHOUSE was great, but the movie itself was very so-so. However, I must admit the trailers for MACHETE KILLS have been awesome so far, with Charlie Sheen on-board as a sex and drug crazed U.S president (HAIL to the chief baby!!!) and Mel Gibson returning to the big-screen in a rare villainous turn as Machete's adversary. I'm game.

9. The Monuments Men

George Clooney. Matt Damon. Bill Murray. Cate Blanchett. Jean Dujardin. John Goodman. WW2. True Story. Nuff' said. This one is a Must-see.

8. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

OK, so many of us found THE HOBBIT to be more than a little long and drawn out. Granted, nobody, not even Peter Jackson, ever assumed THE HOBBIT would be able to live up to LORD OF THE RINGS, and while it wasn't "amazing", it wasn't half bad either. Part 2, THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG boasts the Benedict Cumberbatch-voiced titular character, as well as Orlando Bloom's return as Legolas, and Evangeline Lily, as another warrior elf. Hopefully this one will be a little more contained, although I'm not relishing going through the whole 48fps debacle again.

7. Lone Survivor

Peter Berg apparently redeems himself (and then some) for BATTLESHIP with LONE SURVIVOR, his fact-based account of Seal Team 10's ill-fated mission to capture a notorious Taliban leader in 2005. Mark Wahlberg heads an all-star cast, with Eric Bana, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, and BATTLESHIP star Taylor Kitsch all playing SEALS. This one apparently turned out so well, Universal bumped it from it's original 1st quarter 2014 release date to qualify for the Oscars.

6. Thor: The Dark World

The God of Thunder, Thor is back for more fun. Fresh from THE AVENGERS, THOR: THE DARK WORLD looks even more lavish than it's predecessor, with Chris Hemsworth by now being a fully-minted superstar. GAME OF THRONES vet Alan Taylor takes over as director, and while not too much is known about it yet, it looks more fantasy based than the last movie, and packed to the brim with eye candy (most impressive of which is Natalie Portman, in her first movie in two years).

5. Anchorman: The Legend Continues

I can't believe it's taken ten whole years, but Adam McKay and Will Ferrell have FINALLY managed to get the ANCHORMAN gang back together, for the aptly named "THE LEGEND CONTINUES" sequel. Everyone's back, from Paul Rudd, to Steve Carell, to Christina Applegate. Heck, even Baxter's back, as Ron Burgundy (a God among men) finds himself working for a CNN-style cable news company in the go-go eighties. If Burgundy doesn't wear pastels at some point, I'm going to be disappointed.

4. American Hustle

David O. Russell, who found himself an Oscar contender just a year ago with SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, is back with the Abscam comedy-drama AMERICAN HUSTLE (formerly AMERICAN BULSHIT, a way cooler title). This one looks like a kind of O. Russell MVP movie, with his SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK stars Bradley Cooper (sporting a jerry-curl seventies do) and Jennifer Lawrence, teaming up with his FIGHTER stars Christian Bale (with a comb-over) and Amy Adams. This one looks like it could be this year's ARGO, only more cynical, and way less heroic.

3. Gravity

Lucky me, I'll be seeing Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY, his first film since his 2006 masterpiece CHILDREN OF MEN, at TIFF this weekend. You can look for my review this week, but the early buzz from Venice and Telluride is white-hot, with this apparently being a white-knuckle thriller, that finds Sandra Bullock and George Clooney marooned in space. Cuaron's a genius, and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us this time.

2. The Counselor

Ridley Scott takes on Cormac McCarthy with this being the author's first attempt at a screenplay. Friends of mine who have read it tell me that it's so dark it makes NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN look like Sesame Street. I'm pretty sure Ridley Scott's the ideal guy to do McCarthy justice, and to be sure, he's assembled one hell of a cast. Scott's PROMETHEUS star Michael Fassbender is on-board as the titular character, who finds himself embroiled in the drug trade. Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz and a bug-nuts Cameron Diaz co-star.

1. The Wolf of Wall Street

Martin Scorsese's latest is poised to be the conclusion to a loose "hustler/wiseguy" trilogy he began with GOODFELLAS in 1990, and continued with CASINO is '95. While Robert De Niro is sitting this one out, Scorsese's new go-to guy Leonardo DiCaprio is all-aboard, playing real-life Wall Street stockbroker Jordan Belfort, who, in the early nineties operated a "boiler room" on Wall Street which landed him in major hot water with both the authorities, and the mob. This looks to be Scorsese (and DiCaprio) and his very best, and a sure-fire winner.

Scott and McCarthy... I'm in!

The talent assembled here is outstanding... And the only part of what I see that is less than outstanding is Diaz, but even that isn't an immediate negative. She may be bad more often than she is good, but I'm not one to forget how outstanding she was in The Last Supper, Vanilla Sky, Being John Malkovich, or Any Given Sunday. The woman does dark very well, and she does crazy even better. Let's hope this is one of those roles for her.

When is the movie supposed to be released in the States ?
This is one of the best film of the year for, me at least (And I obviously mean the un-butchered version we'll have this October in France)...

One of my most anticipated movie of the Fall season

'It looks more fantasy based'... EVERYTHING I've seen is more Sci-Fi than Fantasy, with spaceships and laser beams...
POSSIBLE SPOILER
And about Portman, she claimed, numerous times, that she didn't want to be involved too much in another 'big' franchise. So, ad to that the trailer, and the fact that her Comics counterpart is dying in the from cancer in the current comics arc of Thor, and you'll probably see the last of Jane Foster in this film !

It isn't my number one but it's a solid choice. Great cast, pretty good trailer, a director who knows better than anyone how to do a movie like this and a story that can be made into a great film as proven in the past (Wall Street)

This is my most anticipated movie of Phase 2 thanks to a change in the director seat (although I liked what Brannagh did in the first one... for the most part) and having the majority of the film away from Earth. Iron Man 3 was very bland, Captain America just doesn't interest me outside of his WW2 roots and I have zero knowledge of Guardians of the Galaxy (though this is the second most intrigueing film in their slot)

I've never heard a thing about them making this movie before the trailer but that was one of the most hilarious teases of the year. The problem is, it is a two minute sketch stretched out to a full feature so I don't know about that

I haven't read the books but I wasn't a fan of the first movie. It was shot absolutely horribly. They changed the director so that's a good start but the story really didn't intrigue me to get back into that world. It all just felt like been there, done that for some reason.

It's like Gatsby but you completely loathe the main character. Should probably receive a mountain size level of discussion this season, being a Scorsese film. I just hope there's something to enjoy in the pic beyond DiCaprio playing a hugely egotistical douchebag.

I'm intrigued that its remained so low key in terms of what the film is about, yet I'm unsure if that's a good or bad thing. Staying cautious, since Ridley's last few pictures haven't hit the mark where they should have.

It looks like he's gonna try to homage Scorsese with this one, hoping for something more focused than Silver Linings Playbook, at the level of quality which The Fighter was on.

Avoiding all trailers, commercials, and the like, because I don't want the experience to be ruined. I loved the original back in 2004, it's probably up there with Star Wars and Pulp Fiction as my most rewatched/quotable film, and I'll be pissed if Ferrell & co. don't bring the same level of energy and performance to this long in the making sequel.

I'm thinking the larger scope this will offer should be enticing to all Marvel fanboys, as well as people who weren't extremely hot on the first Thor movie. I honestly thought it tied with Iron Man as the best film in Phase One (pre-Avengers), so I'm stoked to see the series progress.

I think Mark Wahlberg wanted to make his personal project a prestige picture, after starring in six films which wouldn't exactly qualify as 'Oscar worthy' (Contraband, Ted, Broken City, Pain and Gain, and 2 Guns). It should be ok-ish, yet I'm already seeing parallels with The Grey and how it was bumped up to take advantage of a prominent lead star in a quasi action-drama performance.

The trailer wasn't well put together (awkward sound in first scene, not enough supporting talent on display, bad song choice overall), but I imagine there's another one coming soon, around when Gravity premieres and Clooney is a talked about name. It'll be a decent film overall, but it takes more than names to give out a solid recommendation in my view.

They casted very well to make this sequel more than something that's a one-note joke...hoping they didn't go to far. I thought the original was ok for a campy piece of sleaze, but I don't want to see Rodriguez become a parody of himself at the same time.

Also this is way way way too high on the list. I expect it'll be out of theatres four weeks after opening.

I think this could be Ben Stiller's best film since The Cable Guy. Hoping it is as big of a hit as Fox wants it to be, for once I'd like to see some comedic talent get repped at the Oscars.

Expect the marketing blitz to begin shortly. Very odd that it releases in 3 1/2 months and yet nothing has been marketed to people, except for some photos. And that title's gotta go - Jack Ryan isn't a very popular character, considering his last on-screen venture was 11 years ago, and its as bland as names come anyway.

This is gonna be the Christmas movie that underwhelms. Its nice they're releasing such a varied piece of counterprogramming, but it's gonna struggle to make anything more than $60-70 million.

Not to be a pessimist, but I'm getting a strong Righteous Kill feel from this team-up. It'll satisfy longtime fans, but actually being a good movie is a whole other story.

Laughed harder at the Toddlers in Tiaras scene than anything else I've seen in a trailer this year. Gonna skip though, it looks like a more tame version of Trash Humpers.

Could be another good performance, like 'The Fighter'.
Could also be something under the radar, like 'Harsh Times'.

Will have to wait and see, gonna stay optimistic though if they're releasing it this late.

Could also be something under the radar, like 'Harsh Times'.

I had the ending spoiled for me, still intrigued by the very notion it's finally hitting the big screen after years of development

I'm surprised this is last, considering it probably will be in the top 3 grossing films for the entire season.

Well, not my number 1 (or even in my top five really), but it does seem like it will be a return to form for Scorcesse. A good list though. Pretty much all of these look like fun at least, if not excellent and award worthy. Hopefully the fall is better than the summer has been, because this summer was terrible for movies.

Looking forward to this, but it's a shame they waited until they were old men to team up together. I can only imagine what a film with the two of them in it would have been like when they were in their prime.

Looks absolutely hilarious. I thought the Jackass films were entertaining, but nothing outrageously funny. The context of this one though makes it seem like it will be funnier.

A trilogy?

Really that is reaching a little too far, why does everything have to be a trilogy nowadays. Can't wait til that fad ends.

Surprised by the first one, loved how it was shot. Hope this one remains the same in terms of style. Francis Lawrence is pretty cool.

After a shitty beginning of the year

2013 has really been lackluster so far. I am hoping that the final part of the year will make up for it. Marty doesn't seem like he is slowing down at all. His movies are always a big deal and it seems like he has made something special. I hope Leo gets his Oscar for this.

Intrigued

There are so many factors that can make this the movie of the year. I love how the plot isn't fully known and oh yeah.... CORMAC MCCARTHY!!!

Should be higher

I have been following this movie forever and it seems like it is everything that I imagined it to be. October can't come soon enough.

I don't expect this to be anything less than great with a cast like this.

Hopefully this will be something

Unlike that crap "Iron Man 3". Will Alan Taylor bring the same magic he has to "Game of Thrones" here?

I will see this one in 48fps

I didn't get to check it out. I will probably disapprove it like everyone does but you never know. I am awaiting to see what Cumberbach does with Smaug.

Wasn't too impressed by the trailers

It seems too cute and "Clooney-ish". Will it be something special or "Ocean's 11" in World War 2?

After seeing how large-scale Tropic Thunder was, if anyone was going to make a comedy this epic, it would be Ben Stiller.

Crossing my fingers for Stiller

I hope that Stiller's cred is raised with this film. It looks like he has done something special with this film. I heard that Wiig's part in this film is that she represents his will whenever he wants to give up and then appears to encourage him. I love that. I never saw the original but will definitely check this one out.

I still have to read this book

I am afraid though that the action is going to be overshadow the story. My friend said that what makes this book so good is the internal thoughts of Ender.

So many great movies . . .

I'm not going to join the chorus of "you forgot _________" but I have to say this one of the stronger Fall seasons I've ever seen. Looking forward to it.

You forgot both of Tom Hanks movies. Captain Phillips in October and Saving Mr. Banks in December. Both considered to be Oscar contenders. So many amazing movies coming out yet this year. I didn't even know they were rebooting Jack Ryan. I mean I know they were talking about it but I didn't know they made it. I'll be amazed if it doesn't get pushed back.
