Santa's Bringing Movies

Seems like there will be something for everybody in theaters this Christmas season.

It was recently announced that Nine is being moved from November to smack dab in the month of December going into a limited release on the 18th. A week before Christmas, this musical drama along with similarly limited released period drama The Young Victoria will try to serve as alternative programming against James Cameron's much anticipated and much hyped sci-fi adventure epic Avatar.

On Christmas Day, Nine will go wide but will have to share space with a lot more movies. A lot more movies. The sequel to Alvin and the Chipmunks will cater to the family audience while older audiences looking for a laugh will most likely flock to Meryl Streep's comedy It's Complicated. For everyone else there is also Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr. and in limited release, Heath Ledger's final film, the fantastical The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

Not enough for you? Oscar potentials Up in the Air with George Clooney, Peter Jackson's literary thriller adaptation The Lovely Bones, and A Single Man with Colin Firth will all expand.

Whew. I'm exhausted just writing this.


  1. I'm so glad I'm in NYC and I'll be able to catch some of these titles before Christmas cause I don't know how I'd be able to cram all those films in such a short period of time!

    When will distributors learn that we want good movies all year round and not just on one day?

  2. I hear you. If I didn't live near NYC, I don't know what I would do!


Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
