THE MUPPETS ARE BACK! The Muppets return in their first theatrical film in 12 years. Jason Segel, who also co-wrote the screenplay, takes the lead as Gary, who attempts to save the Muppets’ theater from oilman Tex Richman, played by Chris Cooper. Amy Adams plays Gary’s girlfriend, Mary, also along for the ride to raise $10 million. Expect a gazillion cameos in this sure-to-be classic film. A Dangerous Method David Cronenberg takes a shot at a historical period piece with “A Dangerous Method,” his third collaboration with Viggo Mortensen. Based on the relationships between psychiatrist Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), his mentor Sigmund Freud (Mortensen) and Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), a troubled yet beautiful woman who comes between them, this should be yet another Oscar buzzed-about film. Arthur Christmas (3D) This animated family comedy, to be released in the ever-popular 3D format, reveals what secret high-tech operations Santa has up his sleeve at the North Pole. Santa’s son Arthur must complete one final mission before Christmas morning. British actors James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent and Bill Nighy voice their talents. Hugo (3D) Martin Scorsese takes a stab at his first 3D film with “Hugo,” an adaptation of the children adventure novel “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.” Hugo is an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station, and embarks on an adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy. Ben Kingley, Sacha Baron Cohen and Jude Law are just a few of the names attached to this Oscar bait. Piranha 3DD We needed a sequel to “Piranha 3D” like we needed a hole in the head, but that didn’t stop the producers of “Piranha 3DD.” And yes, that is a reference to breast size. A year after the attack on Lake Victoria that took place in the last film, the creatures begin traveling through the town’s plumbing, gaining access to swimming pools and the newly opened waterpark “Big Wet.” Don’t ask. Ving Rhames and Christopher Lloyd reprise their roles from the last film while “Feast” director John Gulager steps in for original helmer Alexandre Aja.
