Winter break will be coming soon and so are four attention grabbing movies. These films will be coming out in December and air at theaters all over America.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” 

This movie will be released on Dec. 15. It will be the eighth movie in the “Star Wars” saga that will last a little over two hours and continue from the previous film.

The plot follows Rey (Daisy Ridley), with other characters such as Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe (Oscar Isaac), in her quest to stop Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and embrace her fate. With the trailer at over thirty six million views, theaters will be packed with viewers.

“The Disaster Artist”

The infamous Tommy Wiseau film, “The Room,” was the best of the worst when it came to being a movie. The estimated budget, as said by IMDb, is six million and the estimated gross in the US, 2013, was two thousand.

Before viewing “The Disaster Artist,” watching only ten minutes of “The Room” can give a good glimpse as to why a movie is being made. It will be

released the first of December and will be a good laugh for any of it’s viewers.

“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”

While some fans of the classic “Jumanji” (1995) despise the thought of this remake, others embrace it and hope for its success. It will be released on Dec. 20, and may be a good watch as a sequel instead of a remake of the old film.

Famous actors such as Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan will star in this upcoming film. They will be under the control of teenagers who are trapped within the video game called Jumanji and must escape from it in this action/ adventure film.

“The Greatest Showman”

Another musical is coming soon, starring Hugh Jackman, Zach Efron, and Zendaya. It is based on the true events that led to the creation of the Barnum and Bailey Circus. This film will be released Dec. 20.

The four films are vastly different but they are some of the most interesting movies coming out in December. If there is free time or nothing to do at all, heading out to see these movies will be a good and worthwhile decision.
