Tis the season to be jolly. The month of December is here as Christmas is vastly approaching while people are out shopping to exchange gifts, decorate Christmas trees, attend church, share meals with family and friends, and of course, children waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. Here are two Black Christmas films premiering this month to get you in the Christmas spirit.
A Christmas Fumble follows an ambitious and competent crisis manager Nicole Barnes, played by “Eva Marcille” known for her roles in tv shows like ‘The Young and the Restless,’ and ‘House of Payne.’ She is the Queen of crisis management, who has maintained a spectacular record throughout her career. However, when she gets assigned the scandalous case of her ex-boyfriend and controversial ex-footballer, Jordan Davies, played by “Devale Ellis,” known for his roles in Sistas and The Blacklist. Nicole must live up to her name and handle the most complicated and difficult case of her career. She is faced with many obstacles and also is in danger of not becoming a partner at her firm before Christmas.
The Great Holiday Bake War
Is a comedy love story starring LeToya Luckett known for her roles in “Greenleaf” and “Power” and Finesse Mitchell known for his roles in “Whos your Caddy?” and “The Comebacks”.

They each have their own plan for winning the prize money, but there can be only one winner unless they work together. As the two let the flour fly, they realize the true prize is finding each other again. They strive to put their differences aside to create an amazing new recipe, but the baking process isn’t easy as they experience a rocky road ahead of themselves while Brianna struggles to support her daughter Willow and Julian longs to escape his mother’s shadow.
