  1. Love, Rosie (opens December 5). All the awards to the people who thought of making Lily Collins and Sam Claflin do a rom-com. Below is an interview with the two showing their amazing chemistry—it's three minutes of pure fluff you'll want to watch over and over again! We can't wait to see the actual movie, which is based on Cecelia Ahern's book Where Rainbows End. Editors note: The screening date for Love, Rosie has been pushed to January.

  2. Exodus: Gods and Kings (opens December 5). Revisit the story of Moses in this new movie starring The Dark Knight's Christian Bale.

  3. Dumb and Dumber To (opens this month). Lloyd and Harry go on a new adventure 20 years after they first made us laugh our hearts out. Take your dad and titos to this one—they’ll enjoy the throwback humor of the sequel.

  4. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (opens December 12). The epic conclusion promises to deliver a ton of surprises. Screenwriter Philippa Boyens teases, "It's bigger in scale—if you can imagine!—than perhaps even the Battle of Gondor in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King."

  5. English Only, Please (opens December 25). Boy needs to learn how to speak Filipino, girl teaches him (and herself) a thing or two about love.

  6. Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo (opens December 25). Daniel Padilla lets you in on the real deal about Philippine hero Andres Bonifacio (played by his uncle Robin Padilla).

  7. Shake, Rattle & Roll 15 (opens December 25). The ensemble franchise delivers a different kind of chill in the air this season.
