Fall Movie Preview

Fall Movie Preview

Fall movie season has prestige-filled roster -- The new crop of films includes numerous biopics, R-rated puppets, quirky ensemble comedies and a whole lot Jude Law

Still catching summer flicks? Hollywood’s ahead of you. The shakers have staked out fall, and this year’s prestige-picture lineup teems with the lives of famous guys: Kevin Spacey is crooner Bobby Darin (''Beyond the Sea''), and Jamie Foxx is the late Ray Charles (''Ray''). Colin Farrell dons a tunic to play Macedonian king Alexander, Gael García Bernal embodies revolutionary Che Guevara in ''The Motorcycle Diaries,'' and Liam Neeson frets in a lab coat as sex researcher ''Kinsey.'' You can also expect dueling cheekbone action from Leonardo DiCaprio (''The Aviator'') and Johnny Depp (''Finding Neverland''). If all that sounds too A&E Biography, there’ll be CG superheroes (''The Incredibles''), not to mention a chick flick or two (''Wimbledon,'' ''Shall We Dance?''). And if you’ve got a Jude Law jones, rejoice: He appears in six films before New Year’s, beginning with our first entry, ''Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.'' So let it out, and let it in. Hey, Jude, begin!
