Closed Circuit
While the summer movie season has mostly left us disappointed at the multiplex, with studios serving movies with lots of flash and little else, there has been a silver lining for those avoiding the sequels, superhero movies and CGI tentpoles. There's been a healthy amount of smarter fare for discerning moviegoers, and coming at the end of the month is another picture with the potential to shake the blockbuster blues. It's "Closed Circuit," the latest from "Boy A" director John Crowley, boasting a script from "Eastern Promises" scribe Steven Knight and two compelling leads in Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall. And we've got a special preview for you today.

Another Oscar player in the mix? With Peter Berg's "Lone Survivor" getting a late season contending run, Universal is certainly hoping the film has a chance at getting a little awards season boost, and if the true story captures the attention of audiences and voters, you never know.

Closed Circuit
It's going to be a long summer of explosions, CGI and dick jokes, as your stomach sours from too much buttery popcorn and your brain hurts from endless 3D spectacles. But capping off the season will be a movie that will hopefully have some smarts, and it at least promises some strong talent in a compelling picture.

Given that we've seen something from nearly every summer movie coming in the next three or four months, it might be easy to forget that there are still a couple yet to reveal themselves, and one that's on our radar is "Closed Circuit." Why? We'll, we'll give you a few reasons.

"Deadfall" starts off strong enough – three criminals, led by Addison (Eric Bana) and his sexy sister Liza (Olivia Wilde) speed away from some unspecified job (it's later revealed to be a casino heist). It's icy out and their driver (the only black character in the whole movie) overcompensates, avoiding a deer, which sends their vehicle cartwheeling over a snowy embankment. As Addison and Liza climb out of the wrecked car they notice their very-dead driver, his head through the windshield. "He should have been wearing his safety belt," Bana grumbles, dripping a syrupy Southern accent on top of his natural Australian drawl.

As we head into the tail end of September, summer light is fading and the temperature is beginning to dip. And as we'll soon be pulling jackets out of the closet and putting flip flops away until year, one movie is coming along that embraces the wintry season to tell a taut little tale.

Unknown ObjectWith Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch and Taylor Kitsch already on board for Peter Berg's Navy SEAL flick "Lone Survivor," you might think the cast couldn't get any beefier. But that's where you're mistaken.

"He should have been wearing his safety belt," Bana grumbles, dripping a syrupy Southern accent on top of his natural Australian drawl. It's a perfect way to begin the movie – darkly comic, oddly thrilling, weirdly sexual (there's definitely an incestuous vibe between the siblings) – but these opening moments are probably the strongest in the movie's 94 minute running time.
