Holiday cinema

From Nicole and Tom to Jennifer and Brad, former couples are dueling at the box office this December. Throw in the holiday season that brings as many films per week as does the summer blockbuster season and sprinkle in the fact many films will end up Oscar favorites - the Christmas movie season is huge.

Mickey and Evan Rachel take a walk

December 17

The Wrestler
Mickey Rouke stars in The Wrestler, a film that is supposed to catapult the actor back onto the A-list including an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. SheKnows is eager to see how Evan Rachel Wood manages to have audiences believing she could be the love interest of the 54-year-old Rouke. Could be interesting, we're pulling for Mickey!

Gran Torino
The revenge movie in Clint Eastwood's hands, sounds like Dirty Harry's grown up and gotten a little weary of his neighbor's. Either way, the trailer is intense and as director, Eastwood can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned, Gran Torino looks like a grand experiment, but one worth taking.

 

December 19

Yes Man
Pure Jim Carrey, at least that's what Yes Man seems it will be, except if you've read the book.

 

Zooey Deschanel is charged with the task of keeping up with Carrey. Deschanel stars as an indie rocker love interest for Carrey who also performs a few tongue-in-check ballads on the soundtrack.

SheKnows is all over this film from its opening to interviews with its stars. Don't miss our coverage beginning December 15.

Jim and Zooey say Yes

The Tale of Despereaux
You have to admit the animated mouse movies of late have been quite good. The Tale of Despereaux stars the voices of Matthew Broderick and Dustin Hoffman. Broderick's mouse is kicked out of the mouse community when he befriends a princess voiced by Emma Watson.

Animated mice always score well!

Watch for SheKnows interviews with the entire cast beginning December 15.

 

Nothing but the Truth
Kate Beckinsdale and Alan Alda star in a Rod Lurie film that is based on the story of Judith Miller. Miller, a New York Times journalist, got in hot water when revealing the identity of a CIA agent. In Nothing But the Truth, Beckinsdale further gets to flex her acting muscle.

 

Seven Pounds
Will Smith looks serious. After enjoying himself turns as Hancock and series as Oscar work in Pursuit of Happyness, Smith turns to a love story with Rosario Dawson that also serves as a faith uplifter from the director of Smith's Happyness

.
