September is approaching, and so is the Fall movie season, when the studios push their Oscar contenders. So I have updated my Movies I’m Looking Forward To page with new titles and new trailers.
There are films by Clint Eastwood, Mike Leigh, Terrence Malick, Peter Weir, Sophia Coppola, Julie Taymor and the Coen Brothers. Two of my favorite lesser-known directors, Suzanne Bier (Brothers, After the Wedding, Things We Lost in the Fire) of Denmark and Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) of France, have new movies. Darren Aronofsky will release his newest film after hitting it big with The Wrestler – Black Swan with Natalie Portman.
Helen Mirren will star in three movies: The Debt, Brighton Rock and The Tempest.
The Oscar Bait includes The Town, The Fighter, Another Year, Somewhere, Hereafter, True Grit, Howl, The Way Back and The Tree of Life. Wall Street: The Money Never Sleeps and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest look to me like the surest Fall hits. Another Year, The Town, Hereafter and The Way Back look like they will be the best movies. We should have a better feel for the buzz after Toronto’s film fest in mid-September.
