Fall Movie Preview
The sound of summer fun is fading away into the distance, taking a slew of blockbuster tentpole films along with the sunny days, cookouts, beach vacations and (hopefully) those summer pop music anthems that we're all kind of sick of by now. Of course, recent years have seen a major shift in the landscape of seasonal releases: whereas Fall used to be a sort of plateau between the peaks of summer blockbusters and winter awards season contenders, we now find that Fall has become "blockbuster season part two," and this year will offer some pretty big genre fare. We'll get superheroes (Thor: The Dark World), sci-fi thrills (Gravity, Ender's Game, Catching Fire), horror (Insidious 2, Carrie), crime drama (The Counselor) - and that's all happening BEFORE we get to the go-for-broke holiday movie season with The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Jack Ryan, 47 Ronin and more! In fact, by the time you're done with our 2013 Fall Movie Preview, you too may agree that Fall is starting to look a lot more appealing than summer - as far as movies are concerned.
