Your guide to Autumn's upcoming film releases with release dates, posters and trailers


Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Monday, October 28, 2013

Autumn PreviewSummer is definitely over and with it, the mega blockbuster season as we slowly move into the part of the year that is all about Festivals and gearing up for the forthcoming awards season or as I like to call it the start of the really good films season. The UK Film Distributors Association launched their Autumn preview a little while back I was away for the launch but am steadily getting back into the swing of things and with over 150 films coming up I won't be the only film watcher who'll be spoilt for choice.

Autumn releases typically are a big draw and expectations are that over 40 Million film tickets will be bought over the months of October, November and December. But upcoming releases are going to have to work hard to break previous box office record holders earnings - with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone pulling in £66.1 m, Avatar coining £94.0 m and king of the box office Skyfall pulling in £102.8 million.

UK FILM DISTRIBUTORS LAUNCH SPECTACULAR AUTUMN LINE-UP
150+ films to open in UK cinemas, with 40+ million admissions anticipated, in autumn 2013

The exciting and eclectic range of films for release in cinemas this autumn was recently launched by Film Distributors’ Association (FDA). Autumn is an important season for cinemagoing: ten of the UK’s twenty top-grossing cinema releases of all time were released in the three months October – December. As well as accommodating a half-term holiday, Halloween and the run-up to Christmas, it is also the season when many of the following year’s film award contenders open for UK cinemagoers.

This autumn’s vast selection includes many ambitious British-made films, while British filmmakers also populate high-profile international productions. For example, between now and January 2014, Benedict Cumberbatch will appear in three strikingly different roles in The Fifth Estate, August: Osage County and 12 Years A Slave (set for a January 10 release ).

The new line-up is a reflection of modern times and talking-points in many ways:

AN INCESSANT THIRST FOR GREAT STORYTELLING

The latest works by some of the world’s most highly acclaimed filmmakers are released to UK cinema audiences this autumn, including:  Kenneth Branagh, directing Jack Ryan which has been pushed back to a January 2014 release, Ridley Scott's The Counsellor.

The Establishing Shot: RIDLEY SCOTT'S THE COUNSELOR HOUSE CLIP - 15 NOVEMBER 2013

Stephen Frears - Philomena, Paul Greengrass - Captain Phillips, Joel and Ethan Coen's Inside Llewyn Davis, Spike Lee's Oldboy and Alexander Payne's Nebraska.

Among the British directors whose first feature films are released this autumn are:  Jeremy Lovering with the chiller - In Fear.



Paul Wright with a striking Scottish-set mystery - For Those in Peril and Kieran Evans directing Antonia Campbell-Hughes in Kelly + Victor.


The line-up offers much cinematic spectacle and larger-than-life adventure. From Marvel’s Thor 2: The Dark World to Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and 47 Ronin with Keanu Reeves, audiences will be transported to fantasy lands by cutting-edge digital effects – in the company of extraordinary characters facing dilemmas that are only too human.

A WICKED SENSE OF HUMOUR

A ‘who’s who’ of British comic talent visits cinema screens this autumn in films including: The Harry Hill Movie with Harry Hill, Sheridan Smith, Matt Lucas and Simon Bird, One Chance with James Corden as Paul Potts, Julie Walters and Colm Meaney, and Powder Room with Sheridan Smith and Jaime Winstone.


Many favourite US comic talents return to cinemas, too. There’s The Delivery Man with Vince Vaughn and Cobie Smulders,  Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues with Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd.



Girl Most Likely with Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening and Matt Dillon;  Bad Grandpa, the latest from the Jackass stable; and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, directed by and starring Ben Stiller, with Kristen Wiig and Sean Penn.


The choice of comedies is very wide. Some are laced with romance such as Love Punch starring Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson and Timothy Spall; and Austenland starring Keri Russell, JJ Feild and Jane Seymour, while others are laced with crime like Filth, starring James McAvoy, Jamie Bell and Imogen Poots; and The Family starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer.

NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL SECURITY

Anxieties that are part and parcel of today’s shady world emerge in a range of films, such as: Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks as the captain of a cargo ship hijacked by Somali pirates.



Closed Circuit, a modern-day thriller in which lawyers involved in a terrorist case in London find their own lives at risk; and The Fifth Estate, the biographical thriller starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange that explores the costs of keeping as well as exposing secrets. The dystopian world of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire reflects our obsessions with celebrity, wealth, outer beauty and reality TV.
