17 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Since the beginning of the year, we’ve seen Oscar contenders premiere at Sundance, Cannes, Berlin, Telluride, Toronto and New York, but as we approach the end of October, some films have yet to make their debut. Here are ten films that have been garnering Oscar buzz that will be debuting through December (in alphabetical order):

American Sniper; Dec. 25

Top 10 Musicals That Should Be Made Into Movies

20 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There are two upcoming movie musicals that, for a long time, I've wanted to make into motion pictures, should someone with money be willing to give me the funds to make them -- Into The Woods and The Last 5 Years. I'm both nervous and excited to see how directors Rob Marshall and Richard Lagravenese, respectfully, have interpreted the material I hold so close to my heart. I am especially nervous for Into The Woods, given Marshall's less than impressive track record. If someone is going to screw up something I cherish, it should be me. Of course, there are far more than two musicals I have a deep connection to. Some have already been made into films, like Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Les Miserables, but there is a vast collection of musicals I have thought could make fantastic films, but have never been made. »

19 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kyoto — Koji Yakusho was awarded the Toshiro Mifune Award at the closing ceremony of the Kyoto International Film and Art Festival, which unspooled Oct. 16-19 at locations around Japan’s ancient capital. Named in honor of the first Japanese actor to win worldwide recognition, the prize is awarded to Japanese actors considered to have international potential.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Time Travels From December To February

15 October 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In an extremely unsurprising turn of events, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has been shifted from its previous Christmas release date to February 20th of next year. The holiday season is always tremendously crowded at the box office, and the competition is so steep this year that the raunchy sequel wouldn’t have stood an ice cube’s chance in hell at the box office.

Clark Duke, Rob Cordrry, Craig Robinson, Chevy Chase and Collette Wolfe all return for the follow-up, in which Lou (Cordrry) becomes the father of the Internet and is shot by an unknown assailant from the future, leading the gang to jump into the time machine to save their friend. John Cusack is not returning, and Parks and Recreation‘s Adam Scott will be taking on a new role to fill in for him. Community‘s Gillian Jacobs also has a part.

Javier Bardem In Talks For 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5" Villain

14 October 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales is rushing to a theater near you as fast as any seemingly unnecessary sequel to a $3.7 billion dollar franchise can: it's coming regardless, so let's lean in and hope for the best, even if 2011's Gore Verbinski-less, Rob Marshall-driected installment, On Stranger Tides, felt a little...off somehow.

Johnny Depp is of course returning to play Captain Jack Sparrow who will be facing off against Captain Brand a ghost who blames Captain Jack for the death of his brother. Geoffrey Rush will return as Captain Barbosa and I think he's technically alive at this point. So room for only one major ghost pirate at this point and The Wrap reports that Javier Bardem - portrayer of excellent villains in Skyfall and No Country For Old Men - is in talks to be Captain Brand. 

There's probably room »

Remembering Superman Reeve Ten Years After His Death

10 October 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Christopher Reeve: 'Superman' and his movies (photo: Christopher Reeve in 'Superman' 1978) Christopher Reeve, Superman in four movies from 1978 to 1987, died ten years ago today. In 1995, while taking part in a cross-country horse race in Culpeper, Virginia, Reeve was thrown off his horse, hitting his head on the top rail of a jump; the near-fatal accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. He ultimately succumbed to heart failure at age 52 on October 10, 2004. Long before he was cast as Superman aka Clark Kent, the Manhattan-born (as Christopher D'Olier Reeve on September 25, 1952), Cornell University and Juillard School for Drama alumnus was an ambitious young actor whose theatrical apprenticeship included, while still a teenager, some time as an observer at London's Old Vic and Paris' Comédie Française. At age 23, he landed his first Broadway role in a production of Enid Bagnold's A Matter of Gravity, starring Katharine Hepburn. »

Can Costume Designer Colleen Atwood Pull Off an Extremely Rare Oscar Feat?

8 October 2014 7:04 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

An actor cannot be nominated for an Oscar more than one project in the same category in the same year — but can a costume designer? That was a question that I was asked by a colleague this week after she noticed that costume designer Colleen Atwood, a 10-time nominee and three-time winner, worked on two of this year's highly-anticipated awards hopefuls: Tim Burton's drama Big Eyes and Rob Marshall's musical Into the Woods. The answer: absolutely — it has happened 13 times in the past to eight people — although Atwood would be the first person

Oscar Season Preview

29 September 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

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. »

The first Fall stab at Golden Globe predictions

26 September 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s that time again…time to take a stab at Golden Globe predictions. As I previously mentioned in my last installment, I was originally planning on waiting to take a new look at Golden Globe predictions until the summer was over (so basically now), but I just couldn’t resist. Fast forward to today and I’m back now with what’s my fourth look at the Golden Globe Awards, with this time around, another new theory to try and drum up some different/more accurate predictions. Anyway, here goes nothing! To reiterate one more time, the biggest difference that you’ll see here between the Academy and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is that they tend to go for the bigger names or the bigger productions, as well as more European fare. So yes, films like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, David Fincher’s Gone Girl, and Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher are here, »

22 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »
