Daily Steals Guide to Highly-Anticipated Movies
Thanksgiving through the New Year is a tremendously important time for the entertainment industry. Americans, in the festive spirit, see more movies, buy more new music, purchase more consoles and video games, and even pick up more books (the paper kind) than at any other time of the year. So when you're brainstorming how to entertain that pesky nephew or which movie to see on that extra day off, where do you look? Fear not - the Highly-Anticipated Daily Steals Guide to Highly-Anticipated Movies is here to save the day.
1. The Hobbit. The prequel to Peter Jackson's three-part Lord of the Rings epic is one of the most anticipated films of the last five years.
Starring Ian McKellen and Martin Freeman, it's sure to be a fun, family-friendly romp with plenty of suspense and excitement.
2. Zero Dark Thirty. Kathryn Bigelow tells the story of the operation leading to the capture of Osama bin Laden. Full of tension and uncertainty (much like Bigelow's previous picture, The Hurt Locker), ZDT is not a movie for the faint of heart. Expect to see Parks and Recreation's Chris Pratt ("Andy") take a turn for the serious.
3. Les Miserables. This old classic hardly needs a description. In the time of the French revolution, a prisoner struggles to start a new life.
Is that a wildly underwhelming description for what's sure to be a momentous movie? Absolutely. But we'll let you take in Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman on their own. Just don't catch tuberculosis.
