From Spider Man: No Way Home to The Matrix Resurrections, these December films will surely complete your Christmas season
Let’s be honest, ever since the pandemic started, it’s been harder to keep track of all the films being released, even if they are making a huge buzz all over the internet. One of the probable reason would be for the most part of the last two years the cinemas are closed, and not everyone has access to international films aside from those being released in popular streaming sites.
However, this end of the year, we are looking forward to a more hopeful future with as the Covid virus cases are becoming less each day if we keep this hard work and self-discipline up by following the standard health protocols, our public spaces will continue to open up again like our beloved cinemas.
Since it’s highly likely that this Christmas season, movie-watching will be one of the things friends and family could do together this season whether in a theater or at home. So, to help you plan ahead on what to watch, here are some of the highly-anticipated films this December.
Spider-Man: No Way Home

In this supposedly third and final film, Tom Holland suits up for his third solo joint as Peter Parker, who seeks help from Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to somehow make his not-so-secret identity a secret again, and when the latter’s attempt to do so goes awry, Spidey finds himself squaring off against villains from other universes.
The Matrix Resurrections

Don’t Look Up, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as a pair of astronomers who discover a comet headed straight for Earth and attempt to warn the world, only to be met with varying degrees of incompetence or indifference. This star-studded film will hit the silver screens harder than the comet with names like Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet, and Cate Blanchett on the marquee, it deserves to be on this list due to its cast alone.
