Summer's movie blockbusters are giving way to more serious, adult fare at the box office this season.

Hollywood prefers to unveil its Oscar-caliber films late in the year so judges will remember them clearly when it's time to vote, early in the new year. This year is no different.

Kenneth Turan, film critic for The Los Angeles Times and author of "Never Coming To A Theater Near You," this week looks at the movie season in store for Sunday Morning audiences.

He examins the following trends and movies for the season:

Computer-Generated Films:
  • "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow"
  • "Polar Express"
  • "Shark Tale"
  • "The Incredibles"
  • "Team America World Police"

    Biopics:
  • "Motorcycle Diaries," about Che Guevara
  • "Alexander the Great"
  • "Finding Neverland," about author J. M. Barrie
  • "Aviator," about Howard Hughes
  • "Kinsey," about sex researcher Ablert Kinsey
  • "Ray," about blues legend Ray Charles
  • "Beyond the Sea," about teen idol Bobby Darin

    Sequels:
  • "Meet the Parents" begets "Meet the Fockers"
  • "Bridget Jones's Diary" begets "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason"
