New movies usually open on Fridays, but since the Thanksgiving holiday means many people will have had enough of socializing with their relatives long before then, you’ll be able to sneak out as early as Wednesday to check out this week’s new offerings.

In the animated ‘Arthur Christmas,’ Santa Claus’ son Arthur is on an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.

Director Martin Scorsese makes a rare foray into family-friendly fare with ‘Hugo,’ the tale of a wily and resourceful boy looking to unlock an important secret left to him by his father.

And ‘The Muppets‘ sees our favorite felt-covered friends like Kermit and Miss Piggy reuniting to stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever.

Here’s a sneak peek.
