Here are some of the movies to check out this December: Kill Your Darlings Kill Your Darlings is Daniel Radcliffe’s latest attempt to shed his Harry Potter image. The murder of David Kammerer’s pulls together the three great poets of the beat generation. Together they explore bold new literary ideas that would challenge the sensibilities of their time. However, for all their creativity, their desires and choices lead to more serious transgressions that would mark their lives forever.

Former DEA agent Phil Broker moves his family to a small quite American town to try live a normal simple life. However being the new family in town they attract unwanted attention and Statham must fight to rescue his daughter. A movie for any action fans and with James Franco playing the main villan this is worth a watch just to see him in this unusual role.
