Christmas is always an excellent time to be a film fan. Coinciding with the peak of awards season, yuletide movie releases are usually guaranteed to be among the best of the year. It’s traditionally a time for studios to unveil some of their most anticipated titles, and for filmmakers and performers to flex their most impressive artistic muscles.
2016 is no exception, with a vast tidal wave of cinematic efforts reaching our theatres in the space of just a few weeks. It’s a notably crowded Christmas slate, but thankfully, we’ve put together this handy guide to help you sift through the broad range of possibilities.
These 14 theatrical releases are the films that will be dominating the chatter around the water-cooler for the next two months, and the films you might not want to miss on the big screen.
