It’s time time of year again! Can you believe it? There’s almost nothing better during the holiday season than snuggling up with loved ones and watching something warm and fuzzy. It’s like there’s a little magic in the air that makes us more open to love and kindness. Fortunately, movie-makers know how to capitalize on that and, year after year, we watch our classics at home but we also bundle up and venture out to theaters to see what’s new – even if it is super cheesy! Here’s what you can expect to find this year!

The Night Before – A great cast leads this story of yet another group who converge on Christmas Eve. Three childhood friends realize that, with the changes that come in adulthood, they are facing the end of an era.

Krampus – Halloween might be over for this year but if you would like a little scare with your Christmas, check out this movie about a young man named Max who loses faith in the holiday due to the constant fighting within his dysfunctional family. Unfortunately, that lack of cheer causes all hell to break loose when an ancient evil is unleashed to punish non-believers – December 4, 2015.
Christmas Eve – Six groups of New Yorkers are trapped in elevators after a power outage on Christmas Eve.

While they may not fit the bill exactly, a few other noteworthy movies are coming out during the holiday season. Katniss Everdeen leads a revolution in the thrilling conclusion of the series when

The Good Dinosaur is a great family flick with a message – what would life on Earth be like if dinosaurs still ruled the planet? Contemplate that after seeing it on November 25, 2015. Of course, it seems like the entire world is waiting for
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the film that marks the beginning of a new trilogy featuring some old favorites alongside a trio of new heroes. Tickets are already on sale for the premiere on December 18, 2015.
