It’s going to take a lot to knock “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” off its pedestal, even if studios tried their best this weekend, firing off both barrels against a global blockbuster. Families and teens supported 'An Unexpected Journey' over the holiday period, defeating two high-profile newcomers to be the top attraction for the third straight week. 'The Hobbit' is now eyeballing $300 million domestic, but as always international dollars are a big factor, and by time January 1st rings in the New Year, it will cross $700 million worldwide.

Happy almost new year, cinephiles! To ring in the last week of 2012 the studios are releasing films that feature the most wretched, bloody, depraved, licentious, gruesome characters imaginable. To ensure you don't forget how extreme these storylines are, the roles are filled by Hollywood's most beautiful and talented people. The irony, in addition to the movies, is excellent. Dig in, and enjoy! And let us know what you're seeing below.

Looks like this is the film set to test your patience over the upcoming holiday season. Andy Fickman, whose credits include “She’s The Man,” “The Game Plan” and “Race to Witch Mountain,” directs “Parental Guidance,” which sees Billy Crystal and Bette Midler agreeing to look after their three grandchildren when the kids’ parents have to leave town. Hilarity inevitably ensues when their parenting methods clash with the current child-rearing culture, and when Billy Crystal just generally does his schtick.

It's going to be a tough decision for moviegoers who want to escape the family togetherness of Christmas Day for a few hours. They could either escape into the dusty, blood-splattered old west of Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" or they could face something even more horrifying: a Bette Midler/Billy Crystal comedy called "Parental Guidance." Based on the just-premiered trailer (courtesy of Yahoo), this could be absolute torture.
