“Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” (Sept. 24) – The first “Wall Street” rocked, let’s see if director Olive Stone could make a worthy and timely follow-up. Michael Douglas returns as Gordon Gekko, and Josh Brolin, Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mulligan, Frank Langella, and Susan Sarandon complete the cast.
“You Again” (Sept. 24) – Kristen Bell, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Sigourney Weaver star in this romantic comedy involving weddings, but everyone’s going to see this film because of Betty White who plays Bell’s grandmother.

“The Social Network” (Oct. 1) – You really didn’t expect Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies right? Click “like” on this one because it comes from director David Fincher (“A Curious Case of Benjamin Button”).
“Let Me In” (Oct. 1) – This is the American version of the Swedish film “Let the Right One In” based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist. I love the original movie about vampires and romance, and yes, this is far better than the “Twilight” films.

“Nowhere Boy” (Oct. 8) – This one chronicles John Lennon’s childhood!
“Secretariat” (Oct. 8) – Diane Lane is Oscar-ready playing the real-life part of Penny Chenery, owner of the racehorse Secretariat who won the Triple Crown in 1973. “Seabiscuit” anyone?
“Red” (Oct. 15) – Helen Mirren co-stars with Bruce Willis, Richard Dreyfuss, Morgan Freeman, and John Malkovich in this action comedy about high-tech assassins and retired black-ops agents.
“Conviction” (Oct. 15) – Hilary Swank plays another real-life figure, this time it’s Betty Anne Waters who spent almost a decade trying to free her brother (Sam Rockwell) from a wrongful conviction.

“The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” (Oct. 15) – I can’t wait for this third installment of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy.
“Paranormal Activity 2” (Oct. 22) – I enjoyed the first film, and the filmmakers swear that the sequel will not be along the lines of the horrible “Blair Witch Project 2.” This one will stick to what made “Paranormal Activity” worked – ghosts, demons, and shaky camera!
“Hereafter” (Oct. 22) – Clint Eastwood dabbles with the supernatural in his latest directorial effort starring Matt Damon. The script from Peter Morgan (“The Queen,” “Frost/Nixon”) is Oscar-ready.
“Saw 3D” (Oct. 29) – You know exactly what you’re going to get with this film.
“My Soul to Take” (Oct. 29) – Horror genre icon, Wes Craven, returns to a subject he knows too well – serial killers.
