The Christmas season is on its way, but fall has yet to end. Though winter sees the most movies released than almost any other time of the year, there are plenty of gems to be viewed in October and November.
Premiering Oct. 25 will be Blue is the Warmest Color and The Counselor. Blue… is based on a graphic novel by Julie Maroh about two young women in a lesbian relationship. The film stars Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux and is written and directed by Abdellatif Kechiche.
The Counselor is based on a script written by Cormac McCarthy about a drug trafficking lawyer. Well-know director Ridley Scott and star actor Michael Fassbender make this movie worth seeing. The cast also includes Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz.
In The Wolf of Wall Street, Leonardo Di Caprio plays stock market criminal Jordan Belfort in a film based on Belfort’s memoir, directed by Martin Scorsese. The film premieres Nov. 15.
Seven days later will be the premiere of Catching Fire, the adaptation of the second installment in Suzanne Collins’ bestselling Hunger Games trilogy. Nov. 22 will also be the premiere of Nebraska, a black-and-white film directed by Alexander Payne, which stars Bruce Dern as an old man who’s been scammed by a sweepstakes competition.
Fall is already seeing some interesting choices for entertainment as the year draws to a close, with more on the way as winter approaches.
