'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close'
: Dec. 25
Based on the book by Jonathan Safran Foer, 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' focuses on a young boy (newcomer and former 'Jeopardy' champ Thomas Horn) who lost his father (Tom Hanks) in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, and must solve a mystery he's left behind. Co-starring Sandra Bullock and Max Von Sydow and directed by Stephen Daldry, 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' could be one of the bigger Oscar movies release this year. After all, Daldry is three-for-three when it comes to Best Director nominations, and Bullock and Hanks are no strangers to Academy favor. -- Christopher Rosen
