Big buzz BIG BUZZ: Michelle Rodriguez in a scene from Avatar C HRISTMAS is the peak movie season, leading into the major film industry awards such as the Academy Awards and Golden Globes, with Boxing Day the biggest release date on the annual movie calendar. This year, moviegoers will have a wide choice of summer releases, including several attractions also being offered in 3-D, which is becoming the standard format for major titles. On Boxing Day alone, eight new titles will open in cinemas. But theres no need to wait until then to enjoy time in a cool theatre. The buzz has been building for months now ahead of the release of Titanic director James Camerons revolutionary new 3-D sci-fi film Avatar, boasting Australian Sam Worthington in the lead role. The waiting will end on December 17 when the film is released on screens across Australia. Avatar is expected to be such a strong drawcard that all other studios apart from Paramount have avoided scheduling any releases for December 17. Now Paramount has moved its Pedro Almodovar release Broken Embraces, starring Oscar winner Penelope Cruz, to share that date with Avatar, sensing that female moviegoers in particular might be attracted to a flick that pays homage to the big Hollywood studio dramas of the post-war era. Boxing Day releases are headed by a movie squarely aimed at littlies: the self-explanatory titled Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel. Alvin, Simon and Theodore this time will have some female counterparts, the Chipettes, and new songs in three-part harmonies. SEARCHING for a cool oasis this Wet? Try the cinema, writes DES PARTRIDGE
