Releases promise star power

SHARE THIS STORY: 
So long, summer 2010.

The season traditionally known for its blockbuster offerings has passed, leaving only a handful of films that seemed to impress audiences ("The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," "Inception" and "Toy Story 3," to name a few).

But Hollywood is relentless, and as the fall season approaches, cinema marquee signs soon will be declaring the next new promising movies.

This week, Get Out! provides a guide to some of the films set to release from now through mid-November. Release dates are subject to change.
