It is about that time.

With the release of THE AMERICAN this week, we are getting our first taste of this year’s fall movie lineup, and with that, apparently comes a bevy of new clips from some of the upcoming season’s most talked about films.

Check out all the clips, after the break!

First off, while not a true fall film (it hits theaters on December 31), it is definitely a film that many people are going to be talking about once it continues its festival run at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, a film called BLUE VALENTINE.  Starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, the film has been garnering a massive amount of buzz ever since its premiere at Sundance and subsequent showing at Cannes, and is on many people’s list of Oscar contenders to keep an eye on.

MTV has a new clip for the film, and looks at the first time our two leads, Dean and Cindy, met.  Those who have seen it (such as The Playlist) say that this is a pretty good example of what to expect from the film as a whole, which after seeing this really beautiful and wonderful little clip, makes me all the more excited for this film.

Next, MTV has yet another scene, this time from the latest from Mark Romanek, entitled NEVER LET ME GO.

Starring Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley, Andrew Garfield and Sally Hawkins, the film hits theaters on September 15th, and has been one on the tips of many people’s tongues, particularly and most interestingly after a reveal by Spike Jonze, who said that the film actually made him cry.  Now, that may not be a lot to most people, but as a big fan of both Romanek and Jonze, that is all I need to hear to have this thing be one of the films I’m looking forward to most.  I love the look of the film, at least based on this clip and the trailer, so hopefully this lives up to the massive hype.

Finally, we have a new clip from IT’S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY (again, thanks to MTV), the adaptation of the Ned Vizzini novel, of the same name.  Boasting one hell of a cast, including Keir Gilchrist, Emma Roberts and Zach Galifianakis, and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (best known for their two films HALF NELSON and SUGAR) and you have a project that definitely has a lot of people talking.  Now, I wasn’t a huge fan of the first trailer, but having seen it a few times in theaters, it has definitely grown on me, and this clip just adds to that ever growing anticipation that I have for this project.  It’s one that I can’t wait to check out.

What do you think?
