It's that time of year again, when Hollywood peddles some of its best and brightest wares in the form of heavy-hitting dramas.

Fall films normally fall under the Oscar contender category, and 2013 is no slouch. We've got George Clooney and Sandra Bullock in "Gravity," a slew of celebs in "Prisoners," including Hugh Jackman and Viola Davis, and Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender rounding out the blockbuster cast of "12 Years a Slave." And that's just the beginning.

So grab your Kleenex and get ready: These movies will either leave your heart pounding or your eyes tearing ... or perhaps both.
