Entertainment Weekly has posted its fall movie preview, which offers quite a few new images for us to pore over.  Most notably, this is our first official look at Leonardo DiCaprio in J. Edgar.  And we’ve seen Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander in a number of promotional images, but this looks like the first still from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  After the jump, you’ll also find new images of Chloe Moretz and Asa Butterfield in Hugo, George Clooney and co-stars in The Descendants, Laurence Fishburne and Kate Winslet in Contagion, and Adam Sandler and Adam Sandler in Jack and Jill.

Based on Brian Selznick’s award winning and imaginative New York Times bestseller, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, this magical tale is Academy Award-winner Martin Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D.
