Ironically most of the movies coming out on Christmas day this year don't have a thing to do with the actual holiday. But, if you're looking for a flick to catch after you're done with all the gift-giving and eggnog, here's a rundown of what's hitting theaters this Christmas:
Nine: The film adaptation of the Broadway musical teams Academy-award winners Daniel Day-Lewis, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman and of course Kate Hudson in an all-star cast that illuminates the sexcapades of fictional film director Guido Contini (Day-Lewis) in the glitzy world of high glamour:
It's Complicated: Oscar insiders say Meryl Streep may be up for her third Academy Award in this Nancy Meyers-directed romantic comedy about a woman (Streep) who dumps her husband when she finds out about his pretty young thing on the side and tries to reclaim her single life again with a new beau (Steve Martin), while also falling back into a steamy love affair with her scumbag ex-husband (Alec Baldwin):
The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus: Oscar-winner Heath Ledger's last movie is said to be "a fantastical mortality tale," following a traveling show headed by Dr. Parnassus who asks that his audience choose between two things: light and joy or darkness and gloom. Taking place in the present day, what his audience doesn't know is that their host has made a deal with the devil for his immortality in exchange for youth, that is until his first born turns 16, at which she will then be sold to the devil. The film also stars Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell:
Sherlock Holmes: Newly cemented Robert Downey Jr. plays the famed investigator and takes Rachel McAdams and Jude Law along for the ride as they embark on his latest assignment in this wacky remake of the fictional icon. Check out the trailer below and see an exclusive clip here.
