Let the holiday season begin! But before you start spending all your hard earned cash by buying toys for the loved ones, let’s spend it on yourself and on cinema.
We got some great options this month to wrap up the year.
The expanded released of Out of the Furnace with former Batman Christian Bale and current Batman’s brother Casey Aflleck will kick off the month. The movie is about a brother who takes matters into his own hands after the popo don’t follow when his brother “mysteriously” disappears. Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson and Forest Whitaker are also on the cast.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the year long anticipated film finally here. The Peter Jackson second film to The Hobbit franchise In this part, Bilbo seems to have taken possession of a certain ring…if you know I mean.
Tyler Perry is back with his holiday stories with Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas. Madea (played by director and writer Tyler Perry) is on a quest to help a friend see her daughter for Christmas. You know, the usual Christmas story..
A writer seems to have taken up some of kind of relationship with an operating system he just purchased seems to be what Her is about. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Wilde, and Rooney Mara and it’s directed by Where the Wild Things Are‘s Spike Jonze.
The Walt Disney company has made a lot of movies and not many of them are about Walt Disney himself…selfish. That will all change though, thanks to Saving Mr. Banks. Tom Hanks will portray the entertainment legend Walt Disney in this film about a meeting between an author (author of Mary Poppins) and Mr. Disney. The movie also stars Colin Farrell, Emma Thompson and Paul Giamatti.
Now comes the most anticipated comedy of the year, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues starring Will Ferrell. The film is basically just more of Ron Burgundy. The film some kind of lineup of established actors, let’s list them: Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson, Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, Vince Vaughn, Kristen Dunst, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Christina Applegate and much, much more.
No, Walking With Dinosaurs is not the other Jurassic Park film. It’s just a film that puts you in a setting and feeling of when big dinosaurs ruled the world. John Leguizamo and Justin Long have added their voices into the film.
Five films will compete for your lovely eyes…and cash, starting with American Hustle. Director David O. Russell has put together a cast of Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Louis. C.K., Jeremy Renner and more to tell a tale about Bonnie & Clyde partnership that works for the F.B.I.
I might be the only one excited to see Keanu Reeves return to some action. 47 Ronin is a samurai film, cuz nothing says “Merry Christmas” like people getting killed by samurais.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is directed and starred by Ben Stiller. Sean Penn, Patton Oswalt and Kristen Wiig, star along with him in a film about an imaginative person who has to stop imagining…I guess? Here’s the trailer.
To Martin Scorsese fans, here’s The Wolf of Wall Street, Merry Christmas. The film adaptation of the book written by Jordan Belfort stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill and more. It is about the rise of a wealthy stockbroker as he fell into crime and corruption.
