Remain warm and well, and keep an eye out for the new films coming out in December on your screens!

1. Silent Night

Joel Kinnaman in a Christmas vengeance thriller directed by John Woo? What a wonderful gift. In Silent Night, Kinnaman’s Brian Godlock fights the villains who killed his kid as a lone man. He accomplishes this silently because there is no speech in Silent Night. After a twenty-year hiatus, John Woo makes his Hollywood comeback with the movie. The director of Silent Night is regarded as one of the most incredible action pioneers in cinema, and his work has already received high praise.

2. Renaissance: Beyoncé’s Film

Beyoncé’s Renaissance: A Film chronicles her remarkably produced, performed, and lucrative ($579M in ticket sales) performances. The movie version carries on the concert movie revival trend that Taylor Swift started: The Eras Tour, a theatrical release that was a huge hit.

3. Candy Lane

Eddie Murphy’s character, Chris Carver, aims to triumph in the neighborhood holiday decorating contest. He makes a magical agreement with an elf, determined to win. The trouble? This elf isn’t all sweetness and light and spices. Chris finds out that the other people the elf signed up for are stuck inside plastic toy bodies, and he has to work quickly to save them from this destiny. 

4. Godzilla minus one

Being the King of the Monsters never gets old. He’s frightening and socially relevant once more with the highly regarded Godzilla Minus One. Renowned Japanese director Takashi Yamazaki is responsible for this reimagining of the 1954 Godzilla movie. From the ruins of nuclear war rises a Godzilla as ruthless as his creators in 1947, two years after American bombs decimated Tokyo.

5. The Archies

It’s best that you get ready to dance. With The Archies, a Hindi-language Indian musical comedy based in Riverdale—a community where young adults have fun, make errors, make friends, and defy social corruption—which director Zoya Akhtar reimagines in the Archie comics. The Archies derive their name from the fictional band that includes Archie Andrews (Agastya Nanda), Jughead Jones (Mihir Ahuja), Betty Cooper (Khushi Kapoor), Reggie Mantle (Vedang Raina), and Veronica Lodge (Suhana Khan).

6. A Diary of Wimpy Kid: Christmas Cabin Fever

Greg Heffley (Wesley Kimmel), a middle school student, wants a new game console for Christmas. Instead, he gets stuck at home with his folks due to a blizzard. What a terror! Is Greg destined for failure, or can he maintain his composure long enough to merit that comfort? Based on the critically acclaimed Jeff Kinney books, A Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Christmas Cabin Fever is the seventh film in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise.

7. Wonka

The writer-director of Paddington and its follow-up, Paul King, focuses on the tale of Willy Wonka’s birth. The film’s main character, played by Timothée Chalamet, is a chocolatier who, after being inspired by his mother (Sally Hawkins), becomes both a revered and strangely terrifying figure. Hugh Grant, the sardonic, dry-humored Oompa-Loompa Lofty, Keegan-Michael Key, Rowan Atkinson, and Olivia Colman join Chalamet.

8. Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget

After 23 years, the chickens are running once again. Molly Ramsey, Thandiwe Newton, and Rocky Levi’s daughter flee in pursuit of adventure in this follow-up to Chicken Run. The hens’ vindictive old enemy, Mrs. Tweedy (Miranda Richardson), who has extravagant plans involving deep-fried nuggets, kidnaps her immediately.

9. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

In James Wan’s Aquaman sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Jason Momoa’s character, Arthur Curry, is content with his life as a spouse, parent, and member of the Justice League. Does it not seem too fantastic to be true? When his family is threatened by the vengeful Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), Arthur partners up with his estranged half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) to save those he loves and take on the role of leader his nation sorely needs. Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, Amber Heard, and Nicole Kidman play the same parts again.

10. Ferrari

A Michael Mann biopic is not your typical biopic. Mann’s Ferrari, which is based on Brock Yates’ book Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Races, the Cars, the Machine, chronicles a year in the life of Adam Driver’s character, Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the well-known sports car company. Enzo’s son, 24, passed away, leaving him with a bad financial situation and a broken personal life despite his successful legacy. 


As the year comes to a close, cinemas and streaming platforms are set to unveil a plethora of thrilling narratives and blockbusters. From Beyoncé’s extraordinary concert documentary ‘Renaissance’ to Timothée Chalamet’s enchanting portrayal in ‘Wonka,’ there’s an eclectic mix to cater to every film enthusiast’s taste. With various genres, from action and comedy to musicals and biopics, December’s new movie releases promise an exhilarating cinematic experience for all.
