Skyfall

NOV. 9

STARRING: DANIEL CRAIG, JUDI DENCH, JAVIER BARDEM AND RALPH FIENNES

Summer can keep the fellas in capes; fall’s most anticipated hero rocks custom Tom Ford suits. Craig is back as James Bond, with what producer Michael Wilson calls “the greatest cast ever.” Bardem as the bad guy? We’re there.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

SEPT. 21

STARRING: LOGAN LERMAN, EMMA WATSON AND EZRA MILLER

Who doesn’t wish Emma Watson were their high school best friend? Quirky seniors (Watson and Miller) introduce a shy freshman (Lerman) to kissing, vintage clothes and The Rocky Horror Picture Show in a drama based on the hit novel.

Argo

OCT. 12

STARRING: BEN AFFLECK, BRYAN CRANSTON AND JOHN GOODMAN

To get six Americans out of hostile Iran in 1980, a CIA agent (Affleck) pretends to make a science-fiction movie. Sounds crazy, but it’s a true story. “When I got the script, I just thought, ‘I have to do this. It’s amazing,'” says director Affleck. Expect Oscar buzz-and award-worthy facial hair.

Cloud Atlas

OCT. 26

STARRING: TOM HANKS, HALLE BERRY AND HUGH GRANT

Hanks and Berry fall in and out of each other’s lives across oceans and aeons in this epic from the Wachowskis (The Matrix) and codirector Tom Tykwer. Be prepared for major mind-twisting.

The Master

SEPT. 14

STARRING: PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN, JOAQUIN PHOENIX AND AMY ADAMS

Yup, it’s (allegedly) about Scientology-and a lot more. Director Paul Thomas Anderson’s drama about a Navy vet (Phoenix) falling under the sway of a writer who starts his own religion (Hoffman) could be fall’s most contentious film.

Lincoln

NOV. 9

STARRING: DANIEL DAY-LEWIS, JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT, SALLY FIELD AND TOMMY LEE JONES

The Oscar expectations riding on it are heavy, but Lincoln has a strong back. Steven Spielberg directed the biopic, and Day-Lewis looks so much like the Great Emancipator, he could’ve popped off a penny.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2

NOV. 16

STARRING: KRISTEN STEWART, ROBERT PATTINSON AND TAYLOR LAUTNER

A moment of silence, Twihards, for our shared sadness: not over all that “trampire” drama, but over the end of our journey. At least Edward and Bella (finally out of rescue-me mode) get to kick some Volturi butt while raising their freaky daughter.
