I was worried about the world because it seemed like Transformers was going to win the summer box office derby, but Guardians of the Galaxy came along and stole the crown. Then the James Gunn directed hit did it one better and climbed to the top of the heap for the whole doggone year.
But that’s old news now. We have officially entered the Fall movie season, which means that a bunch of Oscar quality films are leaning on the starting gate. First up we got The Drop, a mob style thriller with James Gandolfini, Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. Skeleton Twins, with Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader is also up, although in limited release. THere’s also some sort of gory thriller starring Idris Elba as a really bad guy. Not sure that one’s going to be worth it, even with Idris.
