Top Films for December

It’s finally here. We are in the last month of 2019! And we’re set to go out with a bang, judging by the films that are coming up. Here’s a rundown of the releases I’m most excited for this month:

Honey Boy 

This Shia LaBeouf biopic is so sad and moving, you’ll see the actor in a whole new light. The film depicts his turbulent relationship with his father (who LaBeouf portrays himself) while shooting Even Stevens in LA as a child. It’s certainly not a fun watch but it deserves to be seen. My current favourite child actor Noah Jupe plays a young LaBeouf, while Lucas Hedges plays him in rehab. You can read my review here. Released: 6th December

Jumanji: The Next Level

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was such a pleasant surprise and did so much better than anyone expected. Naturally, that can only mean a sequel. The teenagers go back inside the game and become their avatars – played by Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Jack Black and Kevin Hart – once again, only this time they’ve been mixed up. I’m sad Black isn’t playing Bethany this time! I wasn’t sold on the trailer but perhaps it’ll surprise me once again. Released: 13th December

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Well, this is a very obvious choice but of course, I want to see how the Skywalker saga concludes! I’m already excited to see the likes of Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac back on my screens. I’m anxious about how it all wraps up! Cannot wait. Released: 19th December

 

Cats

I can’t say I’m excited to see Cats but I’m definitely intrigued to see how it is done. A lot of commotion has been made about the digital fur technology used to make the actors – like Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen and Taylor Swift – look more like cats and I want to know if this is something audiences can accept while watching the film. I also don’t see what the content of the movie is going to be since Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s stage musical has literally no plot. Released: 20th December

Little Women

Normally I wouldn’t be excited about another film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel but the director and cast are irresistible to me. I loved Greta Gerwig‘s first directorial effort Lady Bird and she reunites with its stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet as well as Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Meryl Streep and Laura Dern. What a line-up! I’m sold. Released 26th December
