>> absolutely. he is back. tom hanks is pretty much a lock to get an oscar nomination for this. it's a theme we'll see a lot at the oscars. survival stories. gravity which opened this past weekend. we'll see that a lot.
>> and then the walking dead coming back.
>> are you excited?
>> okay. so last season there were a lot of human problems. there was the governor, this season we're back to zombies. all zombies all the time. so many of them. hundreds and hundreds.
>> looking forward to that october 13th .
>> october 18th two big movie releases, first "all is lost".

>> like castaway but at sea.
>> there's no volleyball.
>> no wilson?
>> he hasn't been nominated for an acting oscar since the sting in 1974 .

>> he'll get one for this.
>> carrie is another one.
>> yes, the remake of the 1976 classic horror movie . perfect timing around halloween. julianne moore plays her bible quoting mom who throws her in the baseball.
>> i cannot wait for a new book coming out on the 22nd, actually a sequel to "a time to kill".
>> it's interesting because he could not find a publisher for this book. he would shop it around from publisher to publisher and everyone was like no and then he became big later and they published it. this is a sequel to it and he deals with another case.
>> called "sycamore row".
>> and katy perry also releasing her album.

>> yes, she performed it at the mtv movie awards . great song.
>> and two weeks from friday, a couple of shows coming out. "grimm" is back and the premiere of dracula".

>> i know.
>> friday nights on nbc.
>> j.k.rowling, new book.
>> this is the hogwarts library. this is a collection of the magical beasts and thing just repackaged. just another way to repackage and maybe make more money.
