'Tis the season to finally watch the December 2017 movies we've been waiting for all year long.

Obviously, the most anticipated movie of 2017 is Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but there are other good movies coming out in December, like Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water; Steven Spielberg's The Post starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep; and Alexander Payne's Downsizing starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig. 

If you need a good laugh during the holidays, there are many December comedies to enjoy, like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black; I, Tonya starring Margot Robbie as figure skater Tonya Harding; and The Disaster Artist starring Seth Rogen, Dave Franco, and James Franco as Tommy Wiseau.

Movies being released on Christmas Day include Aaron Sorkin's Molly's Game, starring Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba, and Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
