#2.)  Hugo  (PG)

An orphan living in the walls of a Paris train station meets a girl with a heart-shaped key, and it unlocks an invention his father gave him.  It’s Martin Scorcese’s first 3D film, and it’s based on the children’s book “The Invention of Hugo Cabret”.

Hugo’s played by a 14-year-old named Asa Butterfield, and Isabelle is Chloe Grace Moretz, who was Hit Girl in the movie “Kick Ass”.  The adult cast includes Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Christopher Lee, and Jude Law as Hugo’s dad.

#3.)  Arthur Christmas  (PG)

A computer-animated movie about Santa’s two sons.  Hugh Laurie is Steve, the son running Santa’s new high-tech operation who’ll become the next Santa, and James McAvoy is his younger brother Arthur, a clumsy kid working in the mail room.

But when Steve screws up and misses one of the presents, Arthur uses their grandfather’s old wooden sleigh to try to deliver it before the sun comes up.
