This week on Movie Picks with Alice Reese, Alice previews the upcoming movies for December.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens:

It's set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher return as their original roles, but this film mainly focuses on a new generation of characters. Alice thinks it will be as big as all the hype.

The Revenant:

This film follows the story of Hugh Glass, an explorer and fur trapper, who gets mauled by a bear and left for dead by his team. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Glass, and Alice says this role might finally earn him that Oscar.

Daddy's Home:

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg battle it out as two men fighting for the attention of children. It's rated PG, so it's seemingly safe for the family.
