Now that summer movie season is over, it’s Oscar season. During winter and fall many Oscar-hopeful movies are released. This is our overview of what you can expect leading up to the 2015 Oscars.
For fans of film, fall and winter are the best times of the year. This is when, typically, some of the most well-received films are released. Unofficially, we call it Oscar Season, and there’s good reason that the year’s best films are saved for last. Any film released before the end of the year is eligible for Oscar nomination. Therefore, if you release your film towards the end of the year, it will be fresher in audience and critic minds when awards time rolls around in early March/late February (February 22nd, 2015 to be exact).
In preparation for the fall and winter movie season, we’ve put together this preview of films that have been getting lots of attention. »

Last week we got a new poster for Morten Tyldum’s (Headhunters)’s World War II drama The Imitation Game, and now we have another one-sheet for the Toronto prize winner, which puts the focus squarely onto Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the famed British codebreaker Alan Turing…
Read our review here
The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing. The pioneer of modern-day computing, Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

HBO hasn't made an official announcement yet, but its being reported this morning that Rachel McAdams has been offered the female lead role in Season 2 of True Detective. The actress is close to signing on, and we should have a definite answer sometime very soon.
Just yesterday, it was said that Keira Knightley had entered the race for the coveted role, auditioning alongside a number of actress both well known and somewhat obscure. Elisabeth Moss was the most popular choice, with Rosario Dawson also said to be a strong contender. Other auditioning actresses included Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, and Jamie Alexander, Oona Chaplin, Brit Marling, and Kelly Reilly.
If Rachel McAdams officially signs on, she will join Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn who were both officially confirmed by HBO earlier in the week. Taylor Kitsch is expected to take the fourth lead role.

We reported this morning that Keira Knightley had been thrown into the ring for the female lead in HBO’s True Detective season two. Now, Variety‘s sources say that Rachel McAdams has been offered the much-coveted role.
McAdams has been in the running for the part for some time now. Since the earliest rumours fired up concerning the major female part, she was touted to be the network’s prime candidate. While it’s stated that she has been offered – but not yet accepted – the role, this surely knocks out the slew of other actresses keen to nab the part.
Today’s news now indicates that despite an apparent scheduling conflict standing in the way of her commitment to Detective, McAdams is likely re-arrange her slate. After all, this is one of the hottest shows on the box right now. If she opts to take it, she’ll shoot Detective this fall, »

Given the flurry of verbiage typed upon each microscopic update (yes, we're implicating ourselves) you would think that "True Detective" season two was being directed by J.J. Abrams and is feature a Millennium Falcon. Neither is true, but there's no denying HBO's show is buzzy as all get out, and now it looks like Nic Pizzolatto and co. are circling in on a female lead. Beating out an array of contenders including Rosario Dawson, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, Abigail Spencer, Oona Chaplin, Jaimie Alexander, Brit Marling and the recently revealed Keira Knightley, Variety reports that Rachel McAdams now has the offer from the network for the lead female role. Moreover, Taylor Kitsch is "expected" to be on board as well for a second season that will follow three police officers and a career criminal who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. So, »

Update: Variety is reporting that HBO has offered the lead female role in the second season of "True Detective" to Rachel McAdams, who was previously thought to be the likeliest candidate for the role. Variety also expects Taylor Kitsch to land the fourth lead role, alongside McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell. The original post follows... When Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell were announced to star in the upcoming season of HBO's "True Detective", with Justin Lin (Fast and Furious 6) set to direct the first two episodes from scripts written by series creator Nic Pizzolatto, noticeably absent from HBO's press release was confirmation of a female lead that has been speculated about ever since the second season was announced earlier this year. In an interview with HitFix back in March, Pizzolatto promised a story about "hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system. »

In recent months, talk surrounding season two of HBO’s True Detective has focused on the possibility of two female leads taking centre stage. The likelihood of that iteration has died down, following two official confirmations from the network; Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will co-star. As the second season steers into familiar territory though, there’s still a wealth of roles so far uncast.
In the running for what’s deemed a major female part are… well, most of Hollywood. According to Deadline, last Thursday eight big name actresses sat down to read for creator Nic Pizzolato in New York. A fresh name that was thrown into the mix is none other than Keira Knightley, who is a newbie to the True Detective rumour mill. Rosario Dawson, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, Abigail Spencer, Oona Chaplin, Jaimie Alexander, Brit Marling and Rachel McAdams have all been linked to the part in the past. »

The Imitation Game starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley brings a unique history lesson, marking the English-language debut of Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (Headhunters). Benedict Cumberbatch is Alan Turing in this true-story of a brilliant mathematician who helped break the German Enigma code, allowing the Allies to win WWII, only to later be prosecuted for his sexuality. "Behind every code is an enigma" promises the new poster, hinting that not all is as it seems with Turing in this stirring new drama. The Imitation Game is in theaters this November, just in time for awards season.
In The Imitation Game, Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Alan Turing, the genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII. Turing went on to assist with the development of computers at the University of Manchester after the war, but »
With Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn now confirmed for "True Detective," the internet has decreed that the second season of the HBO procedural will either be the best or worst thing ever. And yet another name has entered the mix for one of the major female roles on the show. Deadline has tossed Keira Knightley into the fray that currently includes Rosario Dawson, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, Abigail Spencer, Oona Chaplin, Jaimie Alexander, Brit Marling and Rachel McAdams. The actresses were all invited to read for one of the female leads, though the trade also says some could be contending for a different female role. So basically, nobody really knows anything except that Nic Pizzolatto has sat down or will sit down with all these folks. With fever around "True Detective" season two reaching iPhone 6 levels of hysteria before even a frame has been shot, perhaps everyone needs to chill. »
