Downsizing

 

Release date: December 22, 2017.

Starring: Matt Damon, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis, Christoph Waltz, and Kristen Wiig.

What you need to know: Think Honey I Shrunk the Kids but with less ’90s vibes and more Matt Damon vibes. Basically, this movie is about a dude who shrinks himself and his wife as a solution to over-population. Obviously, hijinks ensue, which sure/fine, but Rick Moranis did it first.

The Shape of Water

 

Release date: December 8, 2017.

Starring: Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, and Michael Stuhlbarg.

What you need to know: This atmospheric film is about a janitor who falls in love with a sea monster in a high-security ’60s-era government lab. In other words, it’s about an interspecies relationship ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Guillermo del Toro never fails to deliver, and The Shape of Water looks lovely and weird.
