Now that the superhe—er—summer movie season is coming to an end, Warner Bros. is readying its end of year slate for its awards season hopefuls. We previously reported that Clint Eastwood’s biopic J. Edgar and Stephen Daldry’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly close had been set for October and December respectively, but now the films have firm release dates. Per Deadline, Leonardo DiCaprio-starred J. Edgar will open in limited release on Wednesday November 9th, with a wide release set merely two days later on November 11th, opposite the Adam Sandler comedy Jack and Jill and Tarsem Singh’s action film Immortals.

The studio has also dated the drama Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close for a limited release on December 25th. Starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, the Scott Rudin-produced film will open nationwide on January 20th against Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire and the George Lucas-produced Red Tails. Alfonso Cuaron’s highly anticipated 3D film Gravity has been given a release date of November 12th, 2012. The sci-fi flick stars Bullock and George Clooney.
