With summer over, it’s time for the more high-falutin’ pics to enter our multiplexes, in a bid to capture the awards glory. That said, there’s still plenty of big-budget action to be had.

The Martian (2 October) is adapted from Andy Weir’s self-published bestseller and stars Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars. The book was all about scientific detail, so it’s likely that’ll be eased somewhat, but as directed by Ridley Scott, it’ll look fantastic.

007 is also back of course in Spectre (26 Oct), though details are still thin on the ground. What we do know is that Bond is very angry about M’s death, there’s a new M in Ralph Fiennes and Christoph Waltz may or may not be playing Blofeld.

Apple nerds will be rejoicing at the release of Steve Jobs (13 Nov), director Danny Boyle’s biopic of the Mac genius. Michael Fassbender will be donning the spectacles (let’s hope he does a better job than Ashton Kutcher in the earlier straight-to-video version), while Seth Rogen goes serious as collaborator Steve Wozniak. Last time writer Aaron Sorkin did this kind of topic it was The Social Network, which won him an Oscar, so…

Meanwhile, British book fans will be fascinated to see how cult book Kill Your Friends (6 Nov) fares on-screen. A sardonic and brutal tale of the music industry by John Niven, Nicholas Hoult stars, but will it divide audiences like the novel? Some despise it, others think it’s the one of the best modern books ever written. Watch this space.
