The calendar may have turned from summer to fall a while back, but that doesn't mean audiences will be lacking the same kind of big budget spectacles they were treated to earlier this year. Amidst all the Oscar contenders, there will be major blockbusters making noise, include The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, and of course, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.
