10 New Releases Worth $10
Romantic films are flooding the box office this holiday season. Find out which are our picks!

Money woes got you down?  If you're one of the 1.2 million Americans who have lost their job this year (thanks ABC News for that terribly depressing statistic) then chances are tracking your spending down to the very last dime.   When you do splurge you want to make sure you're getting the most bang for your buck, especially when date night at the movies could end up costing you a good $50 (think popcorn, tickets, soda).  To that end, YourTango (with a little help from noted film junkies across the web) has pulled together a list of the 10 most romantic new releases coming out between now and the end of the 2008. 

Twilight (November 21)
There's an audible shiver (in the theater) as they first spy the teen vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), his impossibly gorgeous face caked in a mime's pallor, sitting in biology class next to young Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart). It rekindles the warmth of great Hollywood romances, where foreplay was the climax and a kiss was never just a kiss. —Time

Australia (November 26)
Nicole Kidman plays Lady Sarah Ashley, an English woman who inheirits land down below that she must protect from interlopers with help from a man known only as the Drover, played by Hugh Jackman. Romance, adventure, and action rumored to be on a scale not seen since Gone With the Wind have Oscar-watchers on high alert. —Premiere.com

Four Christmases (November 26)
Reese and Vince find their annual holiday escape plans foiled when fog grounds their San Francisco flight. When their relatives catch wind that they're still in town, they find themselves forced out of obligation to endure a Christmas get-together with each of their respective divorced parents and wild siblings. —ET Online

The Reader (December 10)
Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes star in The Hours director Stephen Daldry's haunting period romance tracing the complicated love affair between a German teen and a mysterious woman twice his age. —All Movie Guide

The Brothers Bloom (December 19)
Mark Ruffalo and Adrien Brody play the titular brothers Bloom, a con artist duo out to swindle an intoxicatingly zany heiress (Rachel Weisz). The film employs the quirkiness and anachronistic flourishes one might find in a Wes Anderson flick, but ultimately becomes something uniquely, refreshingly its own: a light-hearted caper, an endearing romance and a hankie-necessitating drama rolled into one. —Moviefone
