Rise of the Guardians
Starring the voices of: Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher, Jude Law
Directed by: Peter Ramsey
Why watch: It’s the League of Extraordinary Mythological Figures!
The low-down: Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), The Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), The Sandman, The Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and Jack Frost (Chris Pine) team up to battle bogeyman Pitch (Jude Law).
The buzz: 2012 — or what’s left of it — is definitely the year of superstar gatherings, from ’80s action titans (The Expendables 2) to Marvel comic-book icons (The Avengers) to video game villains (the upcoming Wreck-It Ralph). Now, meet the latest SuperHeavy ensemble based on The Guardians of Childhood book series by William Joyce. “In my mind, Santa was always bigger than life and had an element of James Bond to him,” says Joyce. And Santa, or North, as he’s called in the anime, is the group’s Nick (St Nick?) Fury, a bad-ass toymaker and sword expert. “They might not be fit, toned, gleaming action heroes,” says Alec Baldwin, “but they all have a bit of an edge to them. They’re not all sweet or syrupy.” In other words: Kids, Christmas, as you know it, will never be the same after Rise of the Guardians.

More Real heroes don't wear tights and a mask; they don't come from another planet or have supernatural powers; they live amongst us. In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can't stand idly by — he has to help her. Armed with hidden skills that allow him to serve vengeance against anyone who would brutalize the helpless, McCall comes out of his self-imposed retirement and finds his desire for justice reawakened. If someone has a problem, if the odds are stacked against them, if they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.
