Movies we’ll be seeing this fall

On this cool spring morning, fall seems a long way away — but movie studios are already busily filling in the slots for those Oscar-friendly weekends between early October and end of year. A few I’ve recently been made aware of:

— Steve McQueen’s historical drama “12 Years a Slave,” which will reunite the director with his “Shame” star Michael Fassbender, will open in limited release Dec. 27, same day as “Grace of Monaco.

— Lee Daniels’ White House drama “The Butler,” which has an insane ensemble cast (just a few of its members: John Cusack, Oprah Winfrey,  Robin Williams, Melissa Leo, Alan Rickman, Forest Whitaker, Jane Fonda, Lenny Kravitz) will open Oct. 8.

— “August: Osage County,” based on a Tracy Letts’ play and starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Cooper, opens Nov. 8.

— Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, will hit theaters Nov. 15 — same day as Bill Condon’s WikiLeaks movie “The Fifth Estate.”

— David O. Russell’s follow up to “Silver Linings Playbook,” an as-yet-untitled tale of a ’70s con artist, opens Dec. 13 and reunites Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

Enjoy this spring weekend, everyone!
