22 Must-See Movies Coming Fall 2013

Summer is over, but it’s no time to get depressed. The fall movie season is just revving up, and there are plenty of possibly great films hitting theaters over the next several months (September through November). Half of them seem to star Michael Fassbender or Matthew McConaughey.
