Fall Movies We Can't Wait to See

Summer's gone and it's not yet all about Oscar. 'Tis the season for grownup films like 'Looper' and 'Lincoln'

After the summer blockbusters, and before the final weeks of December — when high-profile Oscar bait fills the screens — Hollywood releases some of its most interesting offerings of the year. Seasoned actors taking on meaty parts, plots that challenge conventional tastes and stories that appeal to the over-30 crowd make autumn the best time to go out to the movies. Here are the fall films that we're most looking forward to.

Trouble With the Curve (Sept. 21) Clint Eastwood hasn't put himself in the hands of another director for nearly 20 years, when Wolfgang Peterson put the actor through his paces as an aging Secret Service agent in 1993's In the Line of Fire. But Robert Lorenz has been working as Eastwood's assistant director ever since The Bridges of Madison County, so he'll definitely know how to get his boss's good side. This time Eastwood plays a veteran baseball scout heading out to appraise one last prospect. His daughter (Amy Adams) comes along for the ride.

Won't Back Down (Sept. 28) With the kids back in classes, parents may be eager for this drama about two mothers (Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal) who are fed up with local schools failing their children (and they're not talking about report card grades). The great supporting cast includes Ving Rhames, Holly Hunter and Rosie Perez.

Looper (Sept. 28) The last time Bruce Willis starred in a time-travel action flick, we got Terry Gilliam's unforgettable 12 Monkeys. This time he's a decade-skipping hit man sent back in time to be assassinated by — his younger self (Joseph Gordon-Levitt).
