So, still waiting for the opening of Rogue One? Yea, so are we, but unless you’re going to attend the premiere on Saturday, we’re all stuck looking for something else to see. Let’s check what openings are slated for this weekend:
|Office Christmas Party
When the CEO (Jennifer Aniston) tries to close her hard-partying brother’s (T.J. Miller) branch, he and his chief technical officer (Jason Bateman) must rally their co-workers and host an epic office Christmas party in an effort to impress a potential client and close a sale that will save their jobs.
A resident of Grundy, VA, considers selling his family business when the economy sours, despite the fact that doing so would mean canceling the town’s beloved annual Christmas pageant. However, he decides to tough it out and help stage the event when he befriends a young boy who still believes in Christmas miracles. Ryan O’Quinn, Shawnee Smith, Danielle Nicolet, and Issac Ryan Brown star in this faith-based drama written and directed by Billy Dickson.
Willing to bend the rules for her clients, Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) remains one of the most sought-after lobbyists in Washington, D.C. When asked to help oppose a bill that imposes regulations on firearms, she instead joins a scrappy boutique firm that represents the backers of the law. Her defiant stance and determination to win now makes her the target of powerful new enemies who threaten her career and the people she cares about.
A successful Los Angeles art-gallery owner’s idyllic life is marred by the constant traveling of her handsome second husband. While he is away, she is shaken by the arrival of a manuscript written by her first husband, who she has not seen in years. The manuscript tells the story of a teacher who finds a trip with his family turning into a nightmare. As Susan reads the book, it forces her to examine her past and confront some dark truths.
A powerful swordsman is haunted by the destructive impact his deadly talents have on others. Weary of the bloodshed and violence from the martial arts world, he banishes himself to the humble life a vagrant, wandering the fringes of society. But his violent past refuses to let him go quietly. The master swordsman must regain the ability to wield his sword and fight those disrupting the peace he so desperately craves.
