Joyeux Noel! Gledelig Jul! Frohe Weihnachten! Mele Kalikimaka! From all of us at FirstShowing.net, we want to wish every one our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays! Whether you're in hanging out at home alone, spending the time with family or friends, or just with your partner; or whether it's snowing or sunny where you are, we hope you have a lovely weekend full of relaxation and warmth and smiles. Yet another year of the pandemic has added stress, but movies have still kept us entertained and moved and inspired. Thanks for reading and thanks for following FS throughout this latest year. I'm glad we've all been able to revel in many exciting movies from 2021 - The Matrix Resurrections, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Dune, The Power of the Dog, Godzilla vs Kong, Barb and Star, Candyman, Malignant, and No Time To Die. Stay safe, movie lovers. News and trailers always slow down during the holidays, but we'll be operating at full-speed again by 2022. Keep an eye out for a few more updates leading us into the New Year.
