Need to know what’s worth nerding out on this month? We’ve been combing the release calendars to find all the awesome movies, shows, and games headed your way. Here’s what’s got our attention!
The Shape of Water – December 1
Out now! The Shape of Water might end up being the most refreshingly original thing you see this month. The latest tale from Guillermo del Toro is about a mute woman working as a janitor at a government lab in the ’60s. She makes a new friend, and that friend is merman-like sea creature, and romance happens. Great reviews so far, and if nothing else, it’ll be worth it just to get another look inside del Toro’s imagination.
Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi – December 15
I know, this one might have flown under your radar. Thank me later. Rey, Finn, Poe, and BB-8 return to the big screen on December 15, but more importantly, Luke Skywalker actually gets speaking lines this time! The creative team has long been saying that while The Force Awakens was very similar to the original trilogy, the next two episodes will go in radically different directions. We’ll see soon!
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – December 20
Did we need another Jumanji? Well, not really, but there are early rumblings that this reboot has actually turned out pretty well! This time, the kids don’t get stuck in a board game come to life — they get sucked into a video game and dropped into player characters brought to life by The Rock, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black.
