DO NOT USE

The last two months of the year at the boxoffice are packed with awards season hopefuls.

Once upon a time -- oh, say, two years ago -- major studios and indie boutiques alike held back their awards-caliber movies until the tail-end of the year for a token post-Christmas eligibility release in New York and Los Angeles. But because of the recently shortened awards-campaigning schedule, Hollywood has been making adjustments. A few major titles aside, this might be the first year in recent memory when the average moviegoer -- not just those with access to press screenings and Academy screeners -- will be able to view the most significant awards contenders by Christmas.Following is a weekend-by-weekend breakdown of the movies likely to make the most noise this awards season, as well as the sleepers lying in wait, and the movies that just want your money, not your accolades.
