Step right up, ladies and gentlemen! Behold the amazing colossal man (or at least Arnold Schwarzenegger in The 6th Day). Gasp before the incredible bearded movie star (Tom Hanks in Cast Away). Wonder at the pneumatic powers of the gravity-defying miracle girls (Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu in Charlie’s Angels). See the most shocking collection of freaks ever assembled for a studio tent pole (Jim Carrey in Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Adam Sandler and his devilish friends in Little Nicky, Glenn Close in 102 Dalmatians).

The Greatest Show on Earth (a.k.a. the fall movie season) is about to roll into town. But before you buy your tickets, take a peek into the future — all you have to do is turn the page — and let EW’s annual fall preview reveal which flicks will be delivering true magic and which might be peddling snake oil.
