The biggest summer-movie season tentpoles have already arrived, and the fall awards contenders have yet to debut, but that doesn't mean August has nothing to offer the intrepid moviegoer. Beginning with a long-awaited Stephen King-based fantasy epic and the latest from The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow, and ending with a rollicking all-star heist film from Ocean's Eleven director Steven Soderbergh, the coming month is set to deliver a bounty of strong Hollywood and indie releases. Highlighted by Robert Pattinson's stellar NYC crime saga Good Time, the next few weeks aren't going to disappoint, so start scheduling your multiplex time wisely now.
