The Christmas movie season is already underway even though it isn’t even December until tomorrow. You may have already seen THOR: RAGNAROK, JUSTICE LEAGUE, or COCO, but they are just the start of a very packed schedule over the coming weeks.

Here is a quick look at just a few of the cinematic treats on the way this holiday season:

Dec. 8: THE SHAPE OF WATER (Fox Searchlight)
Guillermo Del Toro’s latest is a dark fantasy that has received comparisons to his classic PAN’S LABYRINTH, and Oscar talk for star Sally Hawkins.

Dec. 8: I, TONYA (30West)
Margot Robbie IS Tonya Harding in this nasty and funny look at the notorious figure skater’s life.

Dec. 15: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI (Walt Disney)
Almost certainly the season’s premiere blockbuster. It’s also the longest STAR WARS film to date at 152 minutes.

Dec. 15: FERDINAND (Fox)
COCO is not the only big animated movie this season. John Cena and Kate McKinnon lead the voice cast for this story of a friendly bull who is mistaken for a dangerous beast.

Dec. 22: THE GREATEST SHOWMAN (Fox)
Hugh Jackman leaves superheroes behind and returns to his musical blockbuster roots for this look at the life of circus impresario P.T. Barnum.

Dec. 22: THE POST  (Fox)
Steven Spielberg’s latest is getting raves, and offers a powerhouse cast, including Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.

Dec. 22: JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE (Sony)
Dwayne Johnson heads up the cast of this remake of the ’90s Robin Williams fantasy/comedy classic.

Dec. 22: ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD (Sony)
This Ridley Scott look at the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III made headlines recently when it was announced that the film would undergo rushed re-shoots with Christopher Plummer replacing disgraced co-star Kevin Spacey. As of this writing, it is still scheduled to open on Dec. 22nd.
