Trailer Watch: Which Christmas film will you watch this weekend?
Here are a few options for festive watching.

EVERY THURSDAY EVENING, we bring you trailers for films that are out this weekend.

Here are three trailers for festive films you can catch in the cinema or streaming.

The Muppet Christmas Carol (30th anniversary)

Rotten Tomatoes Classic Trailers / YouTube

Selected cinemas and Disney+: To mark three decades since the classic Muppets film (starring Michael Caine) was released, you can catch it in selected cinemas (like Cineworld) nationwide. This is a retelling of the Dickens classic, about a curmudgeonly businessman who gets visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future – starring Muppets. 

Home Alone

Rotten Tomatoes Classic Trailers / YouTube

Selected cinemas and Disney+: Yep you can still catch this in cinemas (Odeon and Cineworld both are showing it), and what better way to usher in the big day itself than watching a young Macauley Culkin fight off two ne’er do wells when his parents abandon him accidentally? Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is also in the same cinemas. Both are great craic.
