2014 Fall Preview - Part II (November & December)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - SGN A&E Writer

The Holiday Movie Season begins with a literal bang this weekend, Christopher Nolan's ambitious science fiction spectacular Interstellar and Disney's superhero, anime-inspired computer animated Marvel-mashup Big Hero 6 each opening to huge expectations and even greater box office aspirations. But they're just the tip of the iceberg as far as November and December go, high-minded dramatic fare fantasizing of Oscar glory crossing paths with big budget extravaganzas looking to sell hundreds of millions of dollars in tickets hitting theaters each and every week.

While The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I (Nov. 21) is sure to be the dominant cinematic force for the remainder of 2014, smaller, more intimate fare like the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything (Nov. 14) and the Alan Turing WWII-era melodrama The Imitation Game (Nov. 28) fearlessly heading into the fray right up against Katniss Everdeen herself. Steve Carell and Channing Tatum chase Academy Awards with what some feel are career-defining performances in Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher (Nov. 28), battling sequels and spinoffs like Horrible Bosses 2 and The Penguins of Madagascar (both Nov. 26) as all three look to fill seats to the point they're overflowing.

December is even more of a crowded crapshoot. The family dollar finds itself under assault by high profile musicals Annie (Dec. 19) and Into the Woods (Dec. 23), while mega-budget sequels Night at the Museum: Secrets of the Tomb (Dec. 19) and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (Dec. 17) hope to live up to the gargantuan takes of their hugely successful predecessors. Ridley Scott goes epic with the Ten Commandments spectacle Exodus: Gods and Kings (Dec. 12), Angelina Jolie takes up director's reins for the second time with the WWII survival story Unbroken and Clint Eastwood brings to life the story of the most lethal soldier in history of the U.S. military with American Sniper (both Dec. 23).

And that's just the tip of the iceberg, the holiday multiplex chaos sure to be massive as more than 100 pictures crowd into theaters looking to turn heads and send audiences out the door with a smile. The following is a small sampling of the films scheduled to hit Seattle between now and the end of the year.
