Goal! Director: Danny Cannon Starring: Kuno Becker, Stephen Dillane, Alessandro Nivola Prelude: There have been loads of football movies, but none with the authenticity of Goal!, which involves a real football club, real-life football stars and live Premiership games. The plot: Up-and-coming Latino star Becker (left) plays Santiago - a poor, amateur footballer in Los Angeles whose extraordinary talents are spotted by Newcastle United. Young and ambitious, he is determined to overcome all obstacles - injuries, personal woes and temptations - to succeed in the glamorous world of international football. Behind-the-scenes: Instead of reusing television footage, the filmmakers set up seven cameras at Premiership games to capture the action. Using computer-generated effects, the actors were placed in the middle of the action to make the scenes look realistic. Things to watch: Appearances by football stars such as Newcastle United's Alan Shearer and Real Madrid luminaries David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane and Raul. How will it fare: As the first part of a rags-to-riches football trilogy, the film will be a mouthwatering appetizer for football fanatics in the run-up to next year's World Cup. Tim Burton's Corpse Bride Directors: Tim Burton and Mike Johnson Voicers: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Emily Watson The story: Depp voices an animated character called Victor - a young bachelor whose rich parents have arranged for him to marry Victoria, the daughter of a poor, aristocratic couple. Too shy to utter the marriage vows, Victor flees from the church to a nearby graveyard and accidentally places the wedding ring on the twig-like finger of Emily, a corpse bride. He is then taken to the underworld where he encounters his childhood pet Scraps - a dog who is now all bones - and other joyfully entertaining skeletons. The gist: There are two sides to Burton. He is both a filmmaker who is happy to closely follow the script of high-budget films (Batman, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and a maverick who is sympathetic towards quirky social misfits (Ed Wood, Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands). Corpse Bride is the work of Burton's maverick side, which is his more creative and endearing half. How will it fare: With very few significant competitors this fall, it will likely cause a stir among trendy moviegoers. It's a freakish and funny animated tale that will appeal to all ages.
