Casting Workbook’s top Movie Picks for December

December is right around the corner and that means: a new month of movies! So, whether it’s a night out with the family or a much-needed break from holiday shopping, here are some December film releases that we’re most excited for (in order of release date):

Heart of the Sea – December 11th

Trailer c/o: Warner Bros. Pictures

Why?
We love a good adaptation and Heart of the Sea is no exception. Directed by Ron Howard, the film stars Chris Hemsworth and is based on the true story that inspired Moby Dick.

Sisters – December 18th


Trailer c/o: Universal Pictures

Why?
BFFs, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are sisters who plan on reliving their glory days through one last highschool-esque party. We can only imagine the hijinks that ensue. If you’re interested in this one, we recommend leaving the kids at home as it is rated R.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – December 18th

Trailer c/o: Starwars YouTube Channel

Why?
We think this one is self-explanatory.

The Big Short – December 23rd

Trailer c/o: Paramount Pictures

Why?
The Big Short has an all-star cast consisting of Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Steve Carrell.  The film centres around the story of the potential global collapse of the economy and how these four outsiders, who saw it coming, dealt with it.

JOY – December 25th

Trailer c/o: 20th Century Fox

Why?
Like the majority of the world, we are huge Jennifer Lawrence fans. Lawrence is reunited with her Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle family joining  Bradley Cooper and director David O. Russell.  The film tells the story of a family across four generations and centres on Lawrence’s character (Joy) as she becomes the successful matriarch.

Daddy’s Home – December 25th

Trailer c/o: Paramount Pictures

Why?
Another great comedic duo,  Daddy’s Home stars Mark Wahlberg and Will Farrell. Both Farrell and Wahlberg face-off to be top “dad” in the eyes of their children/step-children. A Wahlberg/Farrell comedy wouldn’t be complete with out a cheerleader getting a basketball to the face or adorable kids saying “poop”. As with Sisters, we recommend leaving the kiddos at home for this one. Although it is not yet rated, we’re predicting some classic adult humour.

So there you have it. December is looking like a great month for releases. What do you think? What movies are you looking forward to this December?
