December is a time to stay indoors! Leave the snowman building and sledding to everyone else.
As we look forward to Christmas, we decided to give you guys the gift of foresight!
For this month, we’re going giving you the lowdown on new things to watch, plus the shows and movies leaving your favorite streaming services—so watch while you can!
1) The Disaster Artist (Theatres, December 1)
This movie has had a lot of buzz behind it and rightfully so. The movie, starring and directed by James Franco, is about the making of The Room, which is regarded as one of the worst movies ever. It’s one of those so-bad-it’s-good movies and The Disaster Artist seems to be one of those so-good-it’s-good movies.
With a star cast that includes James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, and Alison Brie, this movie is already one of this month’s must-see films!
2) Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Theatres, December 15)
This is the second installment in the Star Wars sequel trilogy and we already know it’s going to be tough for the other movies to compete with this one.
The first film in the trilogy, The Force Awakens, ended up making 2 billion dollars worldwide and it’s not hard to imagine that this upcoming movie will draw a similar number.
Who’s counting the seconds?!
3) Bright (Netflix, December 22)
This Netflix original film is definitely one to watch.
Will Smith stars as a cop, Daryl Ward, in an alternate present-day world where humans, orcs, fairies, and elves have been co-existing together since the beginning of time. Ward’s partner is an orc named Nick Jakoby, played by Joel Edgerton.
The trailer boasts strong visuals and shows glimpses of the conflict that a world like this could have.
4) The Post (Theatres, December 22)
This Steven Spielberg-directed film is already looking like a strong contender for film of the year!
Meryl Streep plays Katharine Graham, a journalist for The Washington Post and the country’s first female newspaper publisher. With help from The Washington Post’s editor, Ben Bradlee (played by Tom Hanks), Graham works on uncovering secrets involving the U.S government and The Vietnam War.
Inspired by true events, the movie also stars Alison Brie, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, and Matthew Rhys.
5) Dave Chapelle: Equanimity (Netflix, December 31)
What better way to enter the new year than by watching a Dave Chappelle comedy special?
In the short teaser trailer for Equanimity, Chapelle is shown making fun of Stranger Things (so obviously, we’re down). This new special is a part of Chapelle’s $60 million Netflix deal—not bad, right?
If Equanimity is as funny as Chapelle’s previous stand up specials then audiences should get ready to laugh!
1) It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Netflix, December 9)
Say it ain’t so! Philadelphia’s favorite drunk idiots will be leaving Netflix this month and we don’t know how to cope.
But it’s not too late to catch up on seasons you’ve missed or just binge-watch all 11 seasons for a week. Just call off work, grab a cold one, and give yourself an early Christmas gift by watching this hilarious show before it’s too late!
2) Nightcrawler (Netflix, December 10)
Jake Gyllenhaal plays another thrilling role in this film as Louis Bloom, a scavenger who picks up an interest in recording breaking news with his camera and submitting it to news stations for money. His character becomes obsessed with his work throughout the movie.
This Oscar-nominated film is a must-watch film so catch it before it’s gone from Netflix forever!
3) Holes (Netflix, December 10)
If you’re looking for a movie to watch with the whole family then check this one out.
This Disney classic stars a young Shia Labeouf (before all his antics), plus Sigourney Weaver, Jon Voight, and Patricia Arquette. After getting arrested for stealing sneakers, Stanley (Shia Labeouf) gets sent to a camp where he and his new friends are forced to dig holes all day.
Throughout his experience, Stanley uncovers the truth about the camp and has moments of self-exploration. It’s your childhood fave for a reason!
4) Her (HBO, December 31)
If you’re looking for an excellent, emotional rollercoaster of a film, then this is the one for you. This movie won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 2014.
The film, which takes place in a future not too far from now, stars Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson. Phoenix plays Theodore, who is still hung up on his past relationship and ends up falling in love with the operating system on his phone, Samantha (Scarlett Johansson).
Watch this acclaimed film before HBO pulls the plug!
5) Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (Hulu, December 31)
If you haven’t watched this film you’ve definitely seen a show or movie spoof one of its many iconic scenes.
High school kid Ferris Bueller plays hooky one last time before graduation and calls in sick. Bueller and his friends end up having a memorable day throughout Chicago, avoiding numerous obstacles which all combine for a fun and hilarious movie.[Feature Image Courtesy Dish Info]
