20 Fall Movies We Can't Wait to See
Viggo Mortensen, The Road
It's not as showy as his nominated performance in Eastern Promises, but Mortensen's turn as a dad protecting his son in a post-apocalyptic world anchors a tough film to watch with relatable emotion.
JACKPOT: Avatar (2009)
With an estimated budget around $500 million (including marketing costs), James Cameron's long-awaited follow-up to Titanic is the priciest movie ever made. And with is reliance on 3-D animated lead characters to guide audiences into an epic (and, at 162 minutes, epically long) sci-fi adventure, it was never a sure thing. But Cameron's gamble has paid off: Avatar has already grossed more than $642 million worldwide.
