There Are A Bunch Of Movies Coming Out Around Christmas — Here's Which Ones You Should See
December is a BIG movie month.
For those heading out to theaters on Christmas, there are eight movies coming out. Of those, four are big wide releases.
Not sure what to see? We've broken down which films are worth watching for everyone.1. Skip: "47 Ronin"
What it's about: Reeves swings around a sword as a samurai as he leads an army of 47 warriors to avenge the death of their master.
The only reason to see it: Keanu Reeves.
It's the actor's return front and center in a big-budget film for the first time in 10 years.
Why you should pass:
We love Reeves, but after some thought, we're not convinced from the trailers this looks like a great film. Maybe it's the monstrous woman turning into a cheesy-looking CGI dragon, maybe it's the fact the film has a tumultuous production story — it's been pushed back since Nov. 2012 with a budget estimated at $225 million — either way, both leave us hesitant.
At the least, you should check out the graphic novel.
The once-Matrix actor really resonates with fans and no matter how bad this movie may be it may very well end up surprising at the box office despite all the competition.2. Run out and see: "The Wolf of Wall Street"
Paramount Pictures and Red Granite Pictures
What it's about: Leonardo DiCaprio is back as another wealthy socialite, this time as crooked stockbroker Jordan Belfort.
Why this is a must-see:
Other than the sex, drugs, and over-the-top wild parties on screen?
