Fall Movie Preview 2015: Biopics, Bond and ‘The Force Awakens’

From Oscar contenders to new Tarantino and ‘Star Wars’ films, all you need to know on the season’s big movies

Fall Movie Preview 2015

Fall is the time of the year when studios release the movies they're not ashamed of and that won't suck the soul right out of you. That's right, they save the best for last in the hope of winning audience applause and maybe Academy gold. Box-office gold wouldn't hurt either (hello, Star Wars: The Force Awakens). So, after checking out the contenders and sifting out the crap (that includes you, Adam Sandler), this guide will point you in the right direction.

‘The Revenant’ (December 25th)

Talk is that Alejandro 
G. Iñárritu turned the filming of this revenge Western into a Canadian-wilderness version of Survivor. The cast, led by Leonardo DiCaprio as a 19th-century hunter left to die by his pals (Tom Hardy and Domhnall Gleeson), froze their actor pee-pees off. "What good is a happy cast," says Iñárritu, "if the film is a piece of shit?" Point taken. Talk now is that The Revenant is a piece of gold, likely to get Iñárritu back on the Oscar stage, where his Birdman won Best Picture and Director. That, folks, is what makes fall the film season that counts.
