[Movie News] In Theaters This Week – December 16th

Many theaters are still not open in the US. Some have had to close again due to health restrictions being put back in place or simply due to a lack of people coming in. While many big-name movies are pushing their release dates back even further, or choosing to premiere overseas first, a number of movies are still determined to make their way to theaters.

This week’s films are full of action, adventure, and sci-fi goodness! There’s the drama about a family fighting for survival in the wake of a natural disaster, a space cruiser crashing into a planet home to an intergalactic prison, another video game adapted for the big screen, and much more!
