Along with all of the fun home-based festivities that the holiday season brings, something that is also becoming more of a tradition for people is going to the movies at Christmas time! The big studios usually hold back some of their biggest releases for this time of the year, and believe me when I say that 2018 looks set to be one of the best years ever for December drops!
