The official end of summer isn’t for a few weeks, but let’s get real. School is back in session, leaves are beginning to fall and if you choose to wear white jeans, someone is gonna make a comment.
Thankfully, there’s no need to board up your windows and go into hibernation until next spring. We’re in the final third of 2013 and it’s time to bring out the big guns when it comes to dramatic films. Thanksgiving. Winter break. The weather is getting crappy and studios know we have money to spend and no where to go.
All this week we’re looking at the best films still to come in 2013. Today we list the top five drama films worth yo’ money.
1. Prisoners, September 20
Hugh Jackman and Terrence Howard play two men whose daughters go missing, with Jake Gyllenhaal as the detective assigned to their case. The film is premiering this week at TIFF and is produced by Mark Wahlberg, who already has one Academy Award nomination for Best Picture under his belt with The Fighter. Marky Mark knows his way around a gritty drama.
2. Gravity, October 4
Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are astronauts who are separated from their ship and left to float through space. After the film was pushed back a number of times, it seemed like maybe two of Hollywood’s biggest A-listers had a dud on their hands, but early reviews for Gravity have it in Oscar contention.
3. The Fifth Estate, October 18
Also opening at TIFF is The Fifth Estate, based on the WikiLeaks controversy and its creator Julian Assange, played by fan favourite Benedict Cumberbatch.
4. The Counselor, October 25
Roll call! Cormac McCarthy on the keyboard, Ridley Scott behind the camera, and Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt on the big screen. Let’s not forget that the last time Bardem was forced to sport a horrendous hairstyle for a film written by Cormac McCarthy it won Best Picture.
5. The Wolf of Wall Street, November 15
Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio team up for the fifth time and minus Shutter Island, the two make incredible films together. They just don’t win many Oscars.
