The “epic conclusion to The Hobbit trilogy”, The Battle of the Five Armies, is our pick of the week and there’s also Unbroken, Into the Woods, the complete Fast & Furious series (so far) and more this week on DVD and Blu Ray.
Taken 3 became the first new movie to take the top spot at the box office this year, with the second best opening in January history, while none of the movies that expanded wide had a particularly spectacular weekend.
The Hobbit managed to top the box office for the third weekend in a row and the first weekend of 2015 while the annual first of the year horror release, Woman in Black 2, had a mediocre debut.
There’s at least four new movies out on Christmas Day with two bio pics, a big budget musical and a remake of a James Caan classic.
If you like musicals, you’ll probably have a great Christmas as both Annie and Into the Woods are coming out while for everyone else there’s movies like The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies, Exodus and The Interview hitting this month.
Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and Rapunzel are all featured in the upcoming Disney musical, Into the Woods, adapted from the Broadway musical with songs by Steven Sondheim.
