Early buzz is starting to pour in for Brad Pitt's 'Moneyball' -- slated to hit theaters on September 23 -- and if early-screening moviegoers are right, this will be one of the must-see films of the fall.

The sports drama -- rewritten by Aaron Sorkin (who just won an Oscar for 'The Social Network) and directed by Bennett Miller -- digs into Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), the general manager of the cash-strapped Oakland A's. After the team loses many of its key players, Beane hires an economic genius (Jonah Hill) and they begin using advanced statistical analysis that gives them a hidden advantage over other, wealthier teams. Other supporting players include Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Wright, so while Hill mixed with Pitt might make this seem comedic, it is, indeed, a drama -- one that's attracting some great buzz and gushing about love and triumph.
