While some have ceded the Oscar race to "12 Years a Slave," the might of David O. Russell can't be forgotten. On paper, "Silver Linings Playbook" didn't look like much more than a quirky rom-com, but after storming the Toronto International Film Festival and winning over critics and audiences, it played huge with Oscar voters, with eight nominations (the entire lead cast got nods) and a win for Jennifer Lawrence for Best Actress. And certainly, while this might look like some high-gloss entertainment, Russell usually has some more subversive notes to play.

We've got them for your scrolling pleasure.

2013 Fall Film Preview, Her, American Hustle, Counselor
With this week feeling, release-wise, a little like the industry at large is taking a deep breath while effecting the gear change from Summer tentpole scheduling to awards season programming, it’s a good moment to pause and take a look at the goodies to come in the waning months of 2013. It’s a pretty stellar lineup, as films we've seen throughout the festival year start to make their way into awards-friendly end-of-year slots, vying with films we haven't yet seen but have been patiently, and in some cases pantingly, looking forward to for months now. In fact the lineup is so stellar that for the purposes of whittling down a manageable list of the films we're most anticipating, we made the decision to exclude anything that features in our Most Anticipated Toronto Internatioal Film Festival list just to narrow the field a little.

Yeah these haircuts look amazing right? Seems like the stuff of a good, "The Informant!" style comedy, doesn't it? Well, hold on to that thought as Sony has stressed that David O. Russell's upcoming "American Hustle" is strictly a drama, though we think the '70s setting and wardrobe are still pretty lol-worthy. But we're sure once the story gets moving, all of that will be pushed to side because it's based on a pretty fascinating true tale.

Christopher Nolan’s name sits central to “The Dark Knight” trilogy, with three distinct entries, a towering worldwide box office take, and a new vision of how superhero films could be created. But alongside him and writer/producer David Goyer, producer Charles Roven was and continues to be a key collaborator to that duo’s creative process.

Okay, while we might prefer the original working title "American Bullshit," it probably would've created a marketing nightmare, so the official replacement? Yeah, it's not too shabby at all.
