Another new month is upon us, meaning it’s the time when I would normally go into a long-winded spiel about the kinds of movies you can expect over the next few weeks, but I think we all know the drill:…
January is upon us, which as we all know is the time of year reserved for that curious mix of Oscar bait finally going wide, obvious duds that got pushed back from summertime/holiday releases, and the rare diamond in the rough taking advantage of a total lack of competition. In other words, expect Rogue One to dominate the box office for the foreseeable future.
Rogue One takes a different approach, and is both a prequel and an interquel, taking place between Episodes III and IV (immediately before Episode IV, as it eventually turns out) and details how the Rebellion managed to get hold of the Death Star plans that served as the MacGuffin of the original film.
December is the time of the year that brings yule tidings, whatever the hell those are, along with the studio's most family-friendliest blockbusters and their most Oscar-batiest of awards contenders. The release of another Star Wars film is imminent and looms large over this month's releases, but there are still plenty of other films vying for your hard-earned ticket dollars this December.
