Best of 2012: 5 movies that stuck the landing

The Great Ending has become an unexpected casualty of Hollywood’s franchise era: Because a sequel is always strongly implied, the final moments of most big movies are now just temporary breaks in action, instead of definitive conclusions.

'The Grey,' 'End of Watch' back in theaters Dec. 7 to perk up Oscar buzz

Oscar voters and fans, take note.

Distributor Open Road Films is making a strategic move to bump up awards season buzz for films The Grey, starring Liam Neeson, and End of Watch, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, by re-releasing them in theaters this Friday.

The Grey, in which a hulking Neeson battles vicious wolves after a plane crash, will have an exclusive run at local Southern California theaters Laemmle Monica and Laemmle Town Center, Open Road announced Monday. End of Watch, which showcases Gyllenhaal as an L.A. police officer going up against a cartel, will return to theaters nationwide.

Other films such as Les Miserables make their theater debut in late December to hit the Oscar radar hard and swift, in the thick of awards season campaigning, while a select number of films released earlier in the year creep back in to remind us of their worth.
