The article reports on the opportunities provided by specialty films for increasing the profits of film studios in the U.S., as they are slated for release in the fourth quarter of 2006. Revamped specialty divisions have been added, like Picturehouse, the Weinstein Co. and the reconfigured Miramax. Actors and filmmakers work on the supposition that a fall release means instant awards consideration. The shortened awards race is one reason the fall of 2006 is loaded with studio projects that could be mistaken for art films.
