December film highlights 2012
The top five films you need to see this month
Peter Jackson is back for more Tolkein, Martin McDonagh is back with Colin Farrell and Ang Lee puts 3D through its paces.
In a sentence:
Diminutive recluse is contacted by elderly hobo and his 12 hirsute pals for a spot of light criminal activity… digitally generated havoc ensues.
Why we’re excited:
It’s Jackson, it’s McKellen, it’s Tolkein, it’s New Zealand. Okay, so the story of ‘The Hobbit’ isn’t in the same epic league as ‘The Lord of the Rings’, but the plot offers plenty of scope for PJ to spread his directorial wings.
Who’ll love it?
The Tolkein heartlands: kids and fantasy nerds. Plus, anyone who enjoyed the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy… and that’s a lot of people.
When’s it out?
