“Krampus”- December 4

There are a lot of things you could say this movie is not, but original wouldn’t be one of them. After Christmas day didn’t turn out as well as he planned, a young boy accidentally summons a Christmas demon to his home, terrorizing him and his family. The film stars Adam Scott (“Step Brothers,” “Parks and Recreation”), Allison Tolman (“Fargo”), and David Koechner (“Anchorman”). With the tagline “You don’t want to be on his list,” comedy, scares, and laughs are sure to ensue. – T. Davis

“In the Heart of the Sea”- December 11

Classic literature has been immortalized in both books and movies. But what if your favorite classic novel had an insanely awesome backstory? “In the Heart of the Sea” follows the tale of doomed whaleship Essex, which became the inspiration for the novel “Moby Dick.” Soon after setting sail the ship is capsized by a massive “great white whale,” leaving the crew stranded with no food, no shelter, and no water—resorting to extreme, and question- able survival methods. The movie directed by Ron Howard (“The Da Vinci Code”), stars Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”) and Cillian Murphy (“Inception”). – H. Santilli

“Sisters”- December 17

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (each “Saturday Night Live” alum)
are teaming up again to make us 2laugh. The two comedic besties star in their new movie “Sisters,” which comes out just before the holiday season when we return home to annoying, but loveable, siblings. The movie follows two sisters who go home to clean out their old bedroom before their parents sell the house. Before that, they throw an epic party in commemoration. – H. Santilli

“Star Wars: The Forces Awakens” – December 18 

What more could be said about a film that, before its release, has al- ready collected 50 million dollars in ticket sales? The franchise’s seventh installment stars Oscar Isaac (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) and brings back Harrison Ford as Han Solo, fearless pilot and beloved friend of Chew- bacca. If you thought “Jurassic World” had a big summer, “The Force Awakens” will blow you away like a laser shot from the X-Wing Star- fighter. Join the movement and pre-order tickets online if you hope to see it within the first two weeks of its release. – T. Davis
