We’ve watched hundreds of trailers, umpteenth hours of movies, and shared countless of tears and laughter throughout the year thanks to all the wonderful movies that coloured the film industry this year. People say time flies when you’re having fun, true enough, we’ve almost arrived at the end of 2017.
So here is Rojak Daily’s final must-watch movie list this year for the month of December.
#1 Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You!
Aspiring Pokémon trainers, PokéMasters, and Pokémon fans, this is definitely one movie you cannot miss. This animated movie tells the tale of Ash Ketchum and Pikachu, who go on an epic quest to battle the strongest and rarest Pokémon as well as a chance to meet legendary Pokémons. Psst, we heard that Pikachu actually speaks (in a non-Pikachu way, but more like humans) in this movie!
Cast: Sarah Natochenny (Ash Ketchum), Ikue Otani and Kate Bristol (Pikachu)
Premieres: 7 December 2017
This movie will not only literally make you wonder, but it will also tug at your heartstrings. The film is based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder, a heartwarming story revolving around a young boy, August Pullman, who was born with facial differences that have prevented him from going to a mainstream school. It all changed when Pullman entered fifth grade and was enrolled into his local school.
Cast: Owen Wilson, Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay
