Find The Wretchedness Inside With Trivium At Gas Monkey Live, Practice Your Spanish At The Wild Detectives And Catch A Screening Of Tom Of Finland At The Angelika.
It’s December. And you know what that means. We all get to watch Luke Skywalker die when Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi releases come December 15.
OK, OK. We’re kidding. We have no idea what actually happens in The Last Jedi, but you know, that trailer and its tricky editing sure makes it seem like Rey is going to slice up her dad real good. KIDDING. We don’t know if he’s actually her dad, but come on, we all have our theories.
Still, there are other great movies coming out way this month, as we reported last week, like The Disaster Artist with James Franco and that crew, The Shape of Water from Guillermo Del Toro and All The Money In The World, a film that will forever be infamous after the director decided to reshoot all of Kevin Spacey’s scenes less than a month before the film’s release.
We’re pretty psyched to check these out and you probably are too. Still, those releases are still a few days or weeks away, but the the following events are tonight. No waiting required. — Obed Manuel
