The way this list will work is I’ll give you the full schedule, some buzz and my thoughts. But instead of telling you let me show you. I’ll also mainly be talking about nationwide releases, with a few limited releases. Also some of these limited releases will most likely get wider releases as the release date approaches. (Release dates are according to Box Office Mojo and IMDB)
The Theory of Everything (limited): The movie takes a look at the relationship between the famous physicist Stephen Hawking (played by Eddie Redmayne) and his wife played by Felicity Jones. Both Redmayne and Jones are on the rise in Hollywood and what better way to get them more up there than a biopic of one of the most famous men in the planet.
Big Hero 6: Disney’s first real animated movie based off a Marvel property and it looks pretty great. It looks like Disney has created a great world for us to fall into and it looks like Baymax may be another lovable character.
Interstellar: What else can I say about this movie? Directed by Christopher Nolan with a A-list cast like Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck and more.
Foxcatcher (limited): The movie is based on a true story of Mark Schultz, an Olympic wrestler (Channing Tatum), whose relationship with his sponsor John du Pont (Steve Carell) an brother Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) leads to unlikely circumstances. The movie is said to possibly get some award buzz, other than that I haven’t really heard a lot on whether it’s good or not.
Rosewater (limited): Written and directed by Jon Stewart from The Daily Show, it tells the story of a real life journalist that was held prisoner by Iran for thinking he was talking to spies from the U.S. Haven’t heard anything from it yet, but I am looking forward to it.
Beyond the Lights: I’ve seen the trailer for this a couple times and both times it has not interested me. The movie is one of the few movies with a majority black cast, which is good because Hollywood is finally realizing that it should target the black community.
Dumb and Dumber To: After years of talking about it, The Farrelly Brothers, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels came together again for another Harry and Lloyd adventure.
V/H/S: Viral (limited): The third part of the V/H/S series takes its focus on kids trying to go viral on the internet. Of course add in some horror and it will lead to be enjoyable watching…hopefully.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1: Arguably the biggest release this month is the first installment of the final Hunger Games movies. It’s going to be interesting to see where they actually split the movie – I have read the book – but more importantly if it will be any good. The other thing about the movie is of course the appearance of Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
The Imitation Game: The movie is based on English mathematician Alan Turing that helps crack the Enigma Code during WWII. The movie has a great cast of Benedict Cumberbatch (playing Turing), Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Mark Strong and Rory Kinnear. But the buzz of the movie is pretty great as well, especially for Cumberbatch.
Penguins of Madagascar: I’ve never seen the Madagascar movies so this one might slip by me as well. But, it also serves as a prequel/origin for the Penguins, which have been said to be a highlight from the previous movies.
Horrible Bosses 2: I really liked the first Horrible Bosses so the fact that the movie got a sequel, I was extremely happy. The movie also brings back the first film’s cast and adds Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine. The trailers also look like they upped the laughs.
What movie are you looking forward to this November?
