December is already a few days old, but I have some films that may be of interest.

Of course, there's the big one - Rogue One on the 16th

Assassin's Creed - Dec 21 - Michael Fassbender as the main ninja, based on a video game no less. He plays a hunter sent back in time to the Spanish Inquisition days for some reason that is not revealed either in the trailer or elsewhere.

Miss Sloane - Dec 9 - a political thriller with Jessica Chastain.

La La Land - Dec 9 & 16 - If you like musicals, here's an entry you might check out. With Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling?

Office Christmas Party - Dec 9 - a raucous, drug fueled office holiday party with an all-star cast (looks really stupid too. I'm in!)

Collateral Beauty - Dec 16 - A depressed Will Smith finds himself visited by the spiritual embodiments of love, time and death. A kind of weird Christmas Carol. with Kiera Knightly, Helen Mirren.

Why Him? - Dec 23 - A dumb-looking comedy with James Franco and Bryan Crantson (who must have needed the money).

Sing - Dec 21 - A cartoon about animals entering a singing contest, by the folks that make the Minions cartoons. Kids should love it.

Passengers - Dec 21 - Two space travelers are accidentally awakened well before their spaceship reaches it's destination. I have this on my must-see list because it's Jennifer Lawrence and Star Lord.

A Monster Calls - Dec 23 - About a young boy with a dying mother visited by a story-telling monster. Based on a children's book.

Silence - Dec 23 - Jesuit priests bringing the gospel to 17th century Japan. Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield.

Fences - Dec 28 - Denzel Washington reprising his Broadway role in an August Wilson masterpiece play brought to the big screen. Denzel directs as well, with Viola Davis (two heavy hitters).

Patriot's Day - Dec 21 - About the Boston Marathon bombing, Mark Wahlberg stars.

Live By Night - Dec 25 - A Ben Affleck directed drama set during the Roaring 20s about a bootlegger turned gangster.

Hidden Figures - Dec 28 - Three African American women who were instrumental in the 1960s space race. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae. (They may have changed the release date because I saw it listed in Flixster for Jan 6, 2017)

Here are some more lesser known movie releases for December.

Solace, Neruda, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Julieta, I Daniel Blake, 20th Century Women, Paterson

Why Him a maybe, the rest are unknowns to me now.

Although I love Amy Adams, I'm not sure I want to see this in the theater.
I'll wait for the video.

I recently saw the trailer to A Monster Calls, and it looks somewhat like a Guillermo Del Toro film with Liam Neeson doing the voice of the Monster. Although I'm not familiar with the children's book, I liked the look of the trailer so much, I may well go see this in the theater.

I've been wondering about Alan in Rogue One. Will his voice in a blockbuster spur fans to investigate his prior work, like Firefly?
Or has that well already gone dry?

I conjure that younger viewers may migrate towards the Verse.

Solace, 16 December. Looks like a great cast. I'm in.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1291570/

Neruda. 16 December. Not sure about this one. Is this why I've been deluged with reruns of 1894 and Kafka on TV? Not sure if this film will be show nearby me.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4698584/

The Autopsy of Jane Doe, with Ophelia Lovibond and Brian Cox - I'm in, but I don't see it showing this year, except in Estonia.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3289956/

Julieta, 21 December. The synopsis seems meaningless. But looks like Pedro's normal showcase for hot babes - is this the prime reason for watching it?
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4326444/

Daniel Blake, when is this supposed to be showing? Not sure why I would see this one.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5168192/

20th Century Woman. 25 December. Elle Fanning could be a big pull, but she was also in Neon Demon. Bening definitely a negative. If it looks like Elle is prominent, I'll suffer through it. But the whole theme doesn't pull me, I knew too many of these characters in the day.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4385888/

Paterson. 28 December. Not sure if this looks like a film I'll be able to see nearby. I might try to catch it in cinema, otherwise wait for DVD.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5247022/

This was better than I expected. This must be the best role that I have seen Olivia Munn in any film - she really pulls her weight here, although others have higher billing and just don't seem to bring it.
