The holiday season is officially upon us, observed less through Christmas decorations and cold weather and more by the onslaught of Oscar fare hitting theaters this month. December is always a truly great time for both quality dramas and big bombastic comedies, and this year won’t be bucking that trend.

We’ve got flicks from esteemed directors such as Martin Scorsese, the Coen brothers and David O. Russell; we’ve got highly anticipated sequels; we even have Keanu Reeves fighting monsters. No need to pen a letter to Santa Claus, dear readers, for your wishes have already been granted.

Welcome to Cinema Blend’s official movie preview for December 2013. Hold onto your hats. Wait, that’s Champ Kind’s hat, so kindly give it back to him.

Inside Llewyn Davis
Their first film since 2010’s western True Grit, Inside Llewyn Davis is a movie light on plot and heavy on music, as it follows the titular singer-songwriter through the folk music scene taking over New York in the 1960s. (It’s no surprise its U.S. debut was at the New York Film Festival, following a premiere at Cannes.) And just in case you can’t get enough of the music in the film, it already has a concert documentary coming out on Showtime on December 13. Will this soundtrack be more memorable than O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Director: Ethan and Joel Coen
Stars: Oscar Isaac, John Goodman, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake
Release Date: December 6 (Limited), December 20 (Wide)
