Just because the summer season is behind us that doesn't mean all the sizzle is gone for the rest of the year. Quite the contrary, as the fall season brings with it a number of high profile festival darlings and the occasional chop-socky kung fu flick that will be jockeying for a little awards love. We've got some new looks at a bunch of them, so let's just get right to it....
First up are a couple of new images from Flight, starring Denzel Washington as a pilot deemed a hero after heroically saving his passengers, only to be revealed as a hard-drinkin' drug fiend. Basically he's like Sully Sullenberger if he turned heel. Don Cheadle, James Badge Dale, Kelly Reilly, and Brian Geraghty co-star in what will be the first live-action film from Robert Zemeckis since Cast Away. Flight opens on November 2nd.
Catfish) are back to direct, and if this image is any indication the Internet may be a factor. Internet and spooky voyeur demon children. Paranormal Activity opens on October 19th.
MTV has dropped this new photo from Tom Hooper's adaptation of Broadway hit, Les Miserable. Since I'm not exactly a Les Mis aficianado, it's hard for me to put this scene into context, so either Jean Valjean(Hugh Jackman) is roughing up a distraught Fantine(Anne Hathaway), or he's trying to soothe the poor factory worker. Between this and the harmonizing dwarfs of The Hobbit coming out on the same day, expect to hear a lot of singing come December 14th.
from the clip we saw just a couple of days ago, in which Bruce Willis gets the jump on his younger self and beats the snot out of him in a crowded restaurant. Hell of a way to start your morning. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a "looper" in the present, a hitman who kills targets sent to him from the future. Looper opens on September 28th.
Wu-Tang Clan founder the RZA prepares to slice 'n dice his foes in The Man with the Iron Fists, his directorial debut and homage to high-wire kung fu classics. Fittingly presented by Quentin Tarantino and feature a script co-written by Eli Roth(Hostel), the film features a badass gunslingin' performance by Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung, Dave Bautista, Pam Grier, and more. The Man with the Iron Fists slashes its way into theaters on November 2nd.
This is probably the most laid back image from the most laid back scene from the long-delayed Red Dawn remake. In a rare moment where they aren't screaming and giving away their position from the invading North Koreans, this shot shows Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Connor Cruise, and what looks like Josh Peck on a scouting mission. Bullets, explosions, and lots of flag waving are soon to follow. Red Dawn bursts into theaters on November 21st.
