The Counselor —
RELEASE DATE: November 15, 2013
CAST: Brad Pitt, Goran Visnjic, Michael Fassbender
WHY IT'S OSCAR-WORTHY: Ridley Scott, already three-time Oscar nominee, directs this screenplay by Cormac McCarthy (novelist, No Country For Old Men). That film's Best Supporting Actor winner Javier Bardem is in on this one, but will that star power be enough to carry shoulda-been nominee Michael Fassbender into the winner's circle? We'll have to wait until 2014 to see.
