Traditionally January has never been very exciting as far as new movie releases go. However, over the past few years we’ve seen a bit of a rise in popularity for movies coming out just after the holiday season. In fact the top 3 grossing January box office releases of all time, have all come within the last few years – 3. Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) 2. Ride Along (2014) 1. American Sniper (2015). 2018 looks to be kicking off on a high note with a wide variety of choices hitting theatres. Movie expert Matty D joined Fresh Mornings for a preview!
