New York city movies - December 2010 releases

By movies-in-new-york, 09:03

Watch the top 5 blockbusters of the month, Tron: Legacy, Yogi Bear, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Fighter and Tangled. Sit back and enjoy this bunch of captivating and fantastic set of movies, which have highlighted the box office rates.

Tron: Legacy released on 17th December 2010 is a follow-up of the 1982 film Tron: Joseph Kosinski. This is an American Science Fiction film which is produced by world renowned Walt Disney Pictures. Though the storyline is not very attractive but the out-of-the-world special effects have caught the viewer’s attention.

Portraying an image of an inventive character of more than 50 years old, Yogi-Bear has made a successful come-back in the big screens. The film, which was released on 17th December 2010, is actually based on a simple story but is fast moving and freakishly special-effected.

This movie, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treaders (2010) is the sequel to the third book of the most famous novel The Chronicles of Narnia. The basic storyline of the movie revolves around Edmund and Lucy boarding the Narnia ship, Dawn Treader with Prince Caspian, after returning to Narnia along with their cousin Eustace.

The Fighter is a true story of the junior welterweight Micky Ward. In this movie boxing takes the main lead. The casts of the movie are incredible and spot-on, and the movie is an absolute entertainment bummer.
