December Movies

Ah, the holiday season: a time for gift-giving, merry-making, and apparently, movie-going with family. Thanksgiving and Christmas bookend the second-largest movie release window of the year, just behind the early summer action-packed blockbuster films. Gather up the family and head out to one of Orlando’s many great movie theaters to catch some of these awaited releases.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

NR | 14 December 2018

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse follows Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) as he discovers a parallel universe where multiple people have Spider-Man powers. Alternate universes are a common occurrence in comic books, but this is one of the only recent movies of note to cross these lines in telling a superhero story. Miles runs into another Spider-Man (Jake Johnson) who takes him under his wing to teach him everything that comes with having these powers.

Mortal Engines

NR | 14 December 2018

Produced by Peter Jackson, the mind behind The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies, Mortal Engines takes place in a desolate, dystopian future where the Earth, once lush and full of life, has become barren and bleak. Cities evolved into mobile fortresses which survive by consuming smaller cities for their resources.

Mary Poppins Returns

PG | 19 December 2018

This spiritual successor to the 1964 classic Mary Poppins taps Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow, The Devil Wears Prada) to take her turn in the titular role made iconic by Julie Andrews. The film sees Mary Poppins, with the aid of her friend Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), visiting a grown-up Jane and Michael Banks (Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw, respectively) to help them through a difficult, personal loss.

Aquaman

NR | 21 December 2018

Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Conan the Barbarian) stars as Arthur Curry AKA Aquaman, the oceanic superhero who made his debut in last year’s Justice League: the DC Comics superhero crossover movie that tried to rival Marvel’s Avenger’s series but ultimately fell flat. Aquaman will hopefully be better. It looks to provide us with a bit of backstory and flesh out the title character as he attempts to prevent a war between land and sea.

Backseat

NR | 21 December 2018

Backseat has an interesting premise: it seems to cover the story of Vice President Dick Cheney. This upcoming movie features a star-studded cast (Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carrell) and is directed and written by comedic genius and Saturday Night Live alum Adam McKay (The Big Short, The Other Guys, Anchorman). Without a trailer or a more detailed synopsis as of yet, it is difficult to tell if this movie will appeal to everyone. It is listed as a biography and a drama on IMDb, but McKay’s background and the announced cast point towards a comedic version of this slice of history.

Bumblebee

NR | 21 December 2018

This Transformers universe movie throws it back to 1987, where the ever-popular Bumblebee is found by 17-almost-18-year-old Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) in the junkyard of a small beach town. Charlie doesn’t recognize the car and buys it, only to later discover that it is, in fact, a Transformer. As Charlie and Bumblebee get to know each other, they help each other overcome the challenges they face.
