I know you’re all probably wondering, “what am I possibly going to do over (Thanksgiving) break?!”, but rest assure I have some ideas for you! Now I know you’re going to eat your weight in delicious Thanksgiving food, catch up with your friends from home, spend some quality time with your siblings that you missed, and of course try to get as much sleep as possible before the inevitable overload of end of the semester work piles on! But I think you should take some time aside to do some other things you normally don’t do! I know I haven’t been to the movies since August or earlier I believe! So that is my suggestion for you- go to the movies! You can go by yourself or with your friends but it’s something relaxing and mindless that should be done! Plus here is a bunch of movies that are coming out (or already out) that you can see over Thanksgiving or Christmas break (also with my own synopsis of what the movie is about)!
So the world is becoming uninhabitable and we must find another place to live. And a NASA physicist devises a plan to take all of the people on Earth and move them to a wormhole. So first, some astronauts (McConaughey) must travel through the wormhole to see which of the planets we can now inhabit.
