WHAT’S ON: December

December is a busy month for students – studying for exams, juggling with books and dictionaries to write the best essays, scrape together the last pennies to buy some presents and train tickets, prepare the stomach for huge amounts of Christmas dinner galore and get home in time for Christmas Eve.

But December is also a busy month for cinemas. What would work better to wash away all the stress from a day than sitting down in a big cozy chair and immerse yourself in a magical film. Seems like studios keep back their center pieces of the year to hit cinema right before Christmas. Here’s a little overview of next month’s releases:
