I love fall movie season! It signifies the studio's releasing their very best projects in hopes of contending during award season.

From Anne Hathaway stepping into Miranda Priestly's shoes, to a marooned Matt Damon, here are some movies I'll be spending money on at the box office in the coming weeks.
