Opening this week at a theatre near you:

Sherlock Holmes – A Game of Shadows:

Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson (Jude Law), are back, and this time they are trying to solve the murder of a Prince. There is evil behind the murder, and it’s a thrilling ride across Europe to catch the man responsible, Professor Moriarty. Along the way, Holmes and Watson get help from a mysterious Gypsy fortune teller (Noomi Rapace) and Holmes’ own brother, Mycroft (Stephen Fry).

What to Watch For: This is Noomi Rapace’s English language film debut, but fans know her well from the Swedish trio of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo films.

Word on the Street: Look for Rachel McAdams as the love of Holmes’s life, Irene Adler, with only a small role in this film. Her appearance, though, could set up a third film or a possible spinoff for her character.

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team are on the run when the Mission Impossible team is blamed for a bombing at the Kremlin. Hunt must figure out who is really responsible for the bombing while trying to stay alive.

What to Watch For: Will open at IMAX only screens on Friday, Dec. 16th and then opens nationally on Wednesday, Dec. 21st.

Word on the Street: This just might be the last mission for Tom Cruise. It’s rumored that Jeremy Renner will headline the next Mission Impossible film.

Alvin and the Chipmunks – Chipwrecked!:

The Chipmunks, the Chipettes and Dave are on a cruise ship bound for a music awards show. Their cruise is cut short by who else, Alvin, who causes the gang to find themselves on a deserted island. Can Dave find the boys before they get into too much trouble?

What to Watch For: Voicing the Chipmunks/Chipettes is an impressive group of actors: Justin Long (Alvin), Matthew Gray Gubler (Simon), Jesse McCartney (Theodore), Amy Poehler (Eleanor), Anna Faris (Jeanette) and Christina Applegate (Brittany).

Word on the Street: The film goes heavy on Lady Gaga and Katy Perry songs, sung, of course, in that Chipmunk style.
