6 Movies Pushed Into 2014
Movies are dropping like flies from the Oscar season this year. Or rather, that seems to be the conventional wisdom out there as a handful of pictures have moved out of the awards season, switched dates or been punted into 2014. And you’ve heard time and time again that it’s a crowded season this fall and winter. And it is, but it’s really no more crowded than any other year -- this prestige season is always busy and there are always casualties and movement. Sure, the Oscar landscape is changing, and there’s been seismic shifts under our feet. George Clooney’s “Monuments Men” is now landing in February, what everyone thought was a surefire Oscar nominee in “Foxcatcher” has moved to unknown lands in 2014 and several other pictures thought to be 2013 Academy contenders have also adjusted plans.

Monuments Men
It has been a bit of wild awards season as we head into the closing months. Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" got pushed to 2014, while there has been a continual question mark around Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street," and whether or not it would be ready in time. But it looks like yet another movie is bowing out of the season.

Monuments Men
The conversation until now has positioned George Clooney's "Monuments Men" as an "Ocean's Eleven"-esque WWII caper, but not a serious Oscar contender. But that talk will likely change with the arrival of the newest trailer for the film, one that still has the lighter tone of the first teaser, but imbues with some serious elements.

The great George Clooney Hang Out With His Pals And Maybe Get Some Awards movie "Monuments Men" is still a couple of months off, but the big question for Oscar types is whether or not it'll be a piece of popcorn entertainment, a wild WWII adventure or something in between. We'd wager the latter, if only because this cast looks like it's impervious to not having fun.

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.

We've got two one-sheets for two very different fall movies. One likely a moodier, small scale thought piece, the other a star-studded piece of awards baiting entertainment...

So, what is "Monuments Men"? A WWII version of "Ocean's Eleven"? A lighter take on "The Good German" era? Well, whatever the film turns out to be, it's a consciously lighter turn from writer/actor/director George Clooney. "[Producer] Grant [Heslov] and I were looking to do a film that was less cynical than a lot of the films we do," Clooney told USA Today, and with the first trailer for this upcoming movie arriving today, it'll prove that point.

We're saying DAYUM in this post for many reasons. For the star-studded casts, for the excitement of three major fall movies, and for the sizzling hotness of Amy Adams. Prepare thy eyeballs and let's get into this...

Well, it's hard to argue with a cast that includes George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, and John Goodman. Indeed, that's the impressive lineup Clooney has put together for his next directorial effort "Monuments Men" (which yes, he's also starring in) but if it feels like there's a name missing, well, there is.

Already a movie we're predicting to be a Best Picture contender next year, George Clooney (fresh from his Oscar win as a producer on "Argo") begins production in Germany today on his World War II tale "The Monuments Men." The press release confirmed the cast that includes Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and John Goodman, but it also included another tidbit, which is yet more reason to get excited for the movie.
