Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City – December 3rd  

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is an upcoming horror movie based on the iconic video game series of the same name. 

Many fans are excited for the reboot, as it is set to stick more closely to the games’ storyline; however, some are concerned that this close-knit narrative will make the movie unoriginal. Despite this, the trailers released for the feature look incredible; the cast seems perfect, the scares seem genuine, and the story appears to be engaging. 

Whether fans are excited or not, it will be interesting to see just how thrilling this movie really is. 

Silent Night – December 3rd 

Silent Night is a Christmas film with a rather damning twist. Keira Knightley stars in this story of festive glee that is overshadowed by the end of the world. 

While family and friends gather to celebrate the holidays in the beautiful English countryside, doomsday is getting closer and closer. Despite all the joy the group are trying to share with one another, the feeling of extinction isn’t far behind. 

This is definitely a Christmas movie with a difference, as festive films don’t usually focus on the end of the world; however, it will definitely be an interesting and original one to watch. 

Clifford The Big Red Dog – December 10th  

On December 10th, Clifford, a beloved oversized pup, will be heading to cinemas. While many know Clifford’s story through books, soon everyone will be able to witness this tale of love and joy on the big screen. 

Clifford, the runt of his litter, is found by Emily (Darby Camp), who is beyond surprised when she wakes up the morning after bringing the crimson canine home to find out he has grown almost too big for her room. 

The movie follows Emily, Clifford and Uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) as their lives change rather drastically; Clifford causes chaos as he runs through the streets and parks of New York City as Emily and Casey try to somehow hide the gigantic hound. 

Spider-Man: No Way Home – December 15th  

The third instalment in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy is getting closer and closer to its release date, and fans cannot contain their excitement. 

Spider-Man: No Way Home is one of the most anticipated releases of 2021, as the multiverse has been opened and a whole host of Spider-Man villains from Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s movie series return.

Spidey is at a loss, and must battle those who have a vendetta with a Peter Parker (Holland), but not the one you think... 

This movie is set to be an action-packed and outstanding experience, and it seems everyone will be flooding to cinemas in order to see what’s really going on. 

The Matrix: Resurrections – December 22nd  

The Matrix series has been one of the most beloved film series since 1999, and seeing as though the fourth instalment in the franchise, The Matrix: Resurrections, is on its way to cinemas, it seems that fans can’t get enough. 

Keanu Reeves is back in his iconic role as Neo, but nothing is as it seems in this forthcoming feature centred around the chaotic mystery that is the Matrix. 

The trailer poses both questions and intrigue, as things from the past are dug back up, and new threats and challenges arise... 

The King’s Man – December 22nd  

The Kingsman franchise has been a great success ever since 2014, when Eggsy (Taron Egerton), a young working-class man, surpasses all expectations after being invited to join the Kingsman secret service. 

On December 22nd, however, we will witness the origins of the Kingsman; audiences will see all the struggles and challenges previous Kingsmen made in order to protect the country from the worst of the worst. 

The King’s Man is set to be an exciting, thrilling adventure showcasing the wonderous world of espionage. 

Boiling Point – December 29th  

Boiling Point is one of this year’s more interesting releases, as Stephen Graham helms this feature all about the stresses of being a chef at a busy time. 

On the busiest night of the year at one of the most popular restaurants in London, charming yet commanding chef, Andy Jones (Graham), must keep his cool as a variety of stressful crisis threaten to destroy all he’s worked for. 

A surprise health and safety visit stresses out the staff as the place fills with guests, and Jones must try his best to keep everything afloat. This movie seems to combine adversity with passion as Jones battles problem after problem.
