2011 Fall/Winter's Most Anticipated



Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
Taut thrillers have been left by the wayside in recent years - action films and rom-coms are more sure investments - but here, a prize one, has been placed right into our laps. George Smiley (Gary Oldman) has been tasked with finding a mole in his agency. When men start dying the stakes cannot be higher. But who can you trust?

Drive
Stuntman by day, criminal by night. Everything comes easy to (Gosling), whether it be flipping a car at exactly the right moment, or escaping hordes of police cars, nothing really frightens him. So when a score goes horribly awry, the adrenaline kicks in and the man paid to run goes on the prowl.

The Ides of March
The cast alone should convince you to purchase a matinee ticket. Clooney, Gosling, Hoffman, Giamatti. Running for President is treacherous. The only thing more treacherous is ambition. When idealistic aide (Gosling) is convinced he can become a Kingmaker to charismatic (Clooney) a sure thing quickly unravels and everyone becomes a liability.

A Dangerous Method
Michael Fassbender has been a very industrious man. If you look closely enough you will notice he has been in every film this summer. So it should come as no surprise that he leapt at the chance to work with Viggo Mortensen and David Cronenberg on a project that explores the dark recesses of the human mind.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
I was not a fan of the original, but along came a very tantalizing teaser trailer and know I'm curious. Rooney Mara nailed every one of her scenes in The Social Network, so the prospect of giving her much more screentime and a juicier role is hard to resist. And the tagline: The Feel-bad movie of Christmas. Perfect.

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
