Playing in theaters now is a good mix: Sony Animation's incredible Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, plus Disney's Mary Poppins Returns, James Wan's Aquaman, Travis Knight's Bumblebee, Jennifer Lopez in Second Act, Robert Zemeckis' Welcome to Marwen, Etan Cohen's Holmes & Watson, Mimi Leder's On the Basis of Sex with Felicity Jones, and Adam McKay's Vice. Plus a limited release of Pawel Pawlikowski's acclaimed Polish romance Cold War. Next year's Christmas line-up looks awesome already. In theaters on Christmas Day in 2019: Sam Mendes' WWI film 1917, Chris Sanders' remake of Call of the Wild, Greta Gerwig's fresh remake of Little Women, and Ben Falcone & Melissa McCarthy's next film Superintelligence. But of course the big one opening on December 20th, 2019 is J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode IX, which we still don't even know the title for yet. Also that weekend is Tom Hooper's new take on the Cats musical, if that tickles your fancy. Enjoy the holiday break & a few new 2019 trailers.
