Release Date: Dec. 19 (limited)
Director: Rupert Wyatt
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jessica Lange
Pros: Star Mark Wahlberg was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "The Departed" and as a producer for "The Fighter." The legendary Jessica Lange is a two-time Oscar winner. Screenwriter William Monahan is an adapted screenplay Oscar winner, and costume designer Jacqueline West is a two-time nominee. Lots of talent.
Cons: "The Gambler" got mixed to positive reviews. At this point it doesn't seem like a real Oscar contender.
