Frances Ha End Of Watch

It's beginning to look at lot like Christmas and while the arthouses will be filled with Oscar contenders, next year brings a bunch of auteurs to theaters. But first, one fall movie is doing a victory lap...

David Ayer's cop drama "End of Watch" is returning to theaters on next Friday, December 7th. The POV, mixed media movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña earned very strong reviews and decent box office, taking $40 million on a budget of $7 million, which frankly, isn't too bad for an R-rated thriller with two leads who aren't always a guaranteed draw in the ticket line. Open Road likely want to get a bit more out of the movie before it goes to home video and next weekend is shockingly dead, with only Gerard Butler's "Playing For Keeps" going wide, which no one wants to see anyway. So it's a nice move, and perhaps a nice way to remind Oscar voters that there are some leftfield choices out there if they want to do something a bit different from the pack.

Meanwhile, let's jump to next spring. Noam Baumbach and Greta Gerwig's charming "Frances Ha" will now hit theaters on May 17, 2013. The film, which played Telluride and TIFF to rave reviews (including our own), stars Greta Gerwig in a picture that we said "feels more like a spontaneous mumblecore picture, but with an exuberant dash of whimsy and fancifulness not seen in either of their previous pictures" and falls somewhere between "Manhattan," "Breathless" and "Girls." For real.

Next, SXSW winner "Gimme the Loot" will drop on March 22, 2013. Directed by Adam Leon, the NYC-set drama is a vibrant look at two graffiti artists from the Bronx (Tashiana Washington and Ty Hickson) who seek revenge on a local gang by tagging a famous city landmark. You can read our review right here, but in short, we definitely reccomend this tough and tender flick.

Last, Abbas Kiarostami will confound audiences on February 15, 2013 with "Like Someone In Love." The director's headscratcher centers on the relationship between an older professor and a young escort. The movie sort of spins its narrative wheels as we said in our review, but the ending will have everyone talking. [BoxOfficeMojo
