The BFI London Film Festival is now just a few weeks away and there are a whole host of movies that we are excited to see.
And if you are hoping to catch some of the movies while the festival is in town then you can book your tickets from today.
There will be a whole host of movies from all over the world to choose from but there are five in particular that FemaleFirst are excited to see.
- End Of Watch
There has been a real lack of Jake Gyllenhaal on the big screen of late but he is back with End Of Watch.
The movie sees him team up with Michael Pena and director David Ayer - who also penned the script.
Police officers Taylor (Gyllenhaal) and Zavala (Peña) are partners and best friends. A night-school student in film production, Taylor affixes tiny cameras to his and Zavala’s uniforms to record their daily routines, collecting material for a short video about the real lives of the LAPD.
Life is good - until a seemingly routine vehicle check finds the pair stepping on the toes of powerful drug traffickers.
End Of Watch promises to be adrenaline-fuelled, throat-grabbingly suspenseful, and one hell of a thrill ride - this is a movie not to be missed this autumn.
Ben Affleck has made quite a name for himself behind the camera with Gone Baby Gone and The Town already under his belt - not to mention that both movies were met with acclaim.
He is back with his new political thriller Argo which is already being talked about as an early Oscar contender.
Could we be seeing Affleck battle it out for Best Director and Best Picture? The movie continues to gain support on the festival circuit and looks set to feature this awards season.
On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage.
But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador.
Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA "exfiltration" specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country.
- Beasts of the Southern Wild
Another movie that is gaining early Oscar support is Beasts Of The Southern Wild and from early trailers this movie looks like nothing else we will see this year.
Benh Zeitlin is in the director's chair for the movie as he makes his feature length debut with the film.
He has assembled a fairly unknown cast that includes Quvenzhané Wallis, Dwight Henry and Levy Easterly and critics are already raving about the movie.
In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood.
Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality.
Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.
- Song For Marion
Vanessa Redgrave is also a possibility for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in what is set to be one of the most heartwarming movies of the year.
Song for Marion is a comedic drama about grumpy pensioner Arthur (Terence Stamp) who is reluctantly inspired by his beloved wife Marion (Vanessa Redgrave) to join a highly unconventional local choir.
At odds with his son James (Christopher Eccleston), it is left to choir director Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton) to try and persuade Arthur that he can learn to embrace life.
Arthur must confront the undercurrents of his own grumbling persona as he embarks on a hilarious, life-affirming journey of musical self discovery.
One of the movies that we are most looking forward to is Tim Burton's Frankenweenie as he returns to the world of stop motion animation for the first time since The Corpse Bride.
Frankenweenie is a remake of Burton's own 1984 short of the same name and brings together a great voice cast that includes Charlie Tahan, Winona Ryder and Catherine O'Hara.
After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life - with just a few minor adjustments.
He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new 'leash on life' can be monstrous.
