A huge survey of the season's most anticipated films, Entertainment Weekly's annual fall movie preview hits newsstands today. We've rounded up some highlights here.

The issue features a spread on "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," a sequel landing this fall almost ten years after its 2004 predecessor "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy." The $50 million comedy reunites cast members Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd, while throwing new stars into the mix including Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig, Jim Carrey and Harrison Ford. According to Ferrell, they "actually attempted to get President Obama in the movie -- that would have been the cameo of cameos. But he's got a lot on his plate." Director Adam McKay also talks about the struggle to make this sequel, which arrives on December 20.

Jennifer Lawrence reveals the pre-production snafus surrounding "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" (November 22). Just months before production was set to begin, the movie had no director or script. "We went through a phase where we were like, 'Dude, we have no idea what's going to happen,'" the Oscar winner tells EW. Fortunately, Lionsgate broad about "I Am Legend" director Francis Lawrence in the nick of time.

Anticipating Oscar season, the fall preview also highlights a number of awards hopefuls. Jonah Hill discusses Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" (November 15), co-starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a real-life stockbroker who committed elaborate securities fraud and went to jail for it in the early 90s. All the characters in the film inhale a lot of cocaine. "You snort vitamin powder," Hill tells EW. "We would sometimes be snorting this powder all day... So I probably sounded nasally like I had an actual cocaine problem during the whole shoot. But at least I had plenty of vitamins, so I felt amazing!"

Julia Roberts talks the Oscar-bound "August: Osage County," director John Wells' adaptation of the hit Tracy Letts-penned play. The film centers on a dysfunctional family reuniting in rural Oklahoma after the patriarch (Sam Shepard) vanishes, leaving the cancer-ridden, pill-popping mother (Meryl Streep) in emotional disarray. "This kind of material is like acting the Olympics," Roberts, who plays Streep's daughter, tells EW. "To have Meryl Streep play your mother... these are the things I've dreamt about for the past 25 years." "August" will screen at TIFF in September.

Look for EW's fall movie preview today.
