Good Bye Halloween November Movies Have Arrived
With the fun and merriment of Halloween here on Long Beach Island still fresh in our minds let’s turn our attention to what Hollywood has to offer on the silver screen in November. Starting on the 1st, the movie industry is dropping out big films in advance of the holidays. So as Thanksgiving approaches, you will have numerous choices to indulge your film interests. Here’s a look at some of the movies headed our way.
Kicking off the month on November 1st, A Bad Mom’s Christmas hits theaters. It is the sequel to last year’s comedic hit Bad Moms. Starring Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis, and Kathryn Hahn, this comedy promises to be a solid follow-up to the first film as the moms navigate the challenges of Christmas. Don’t expect this installment to be the last of this budding franchise.
On the heels of A Bad Mom’s Wednesday release, three other interesting movies arrive at theaters on Friday, November 3rd to kick off the first weekend of the month. First, we have the Marvel Universe film Thor: Ragnorak. The action movie features Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett. This time around the Norse god will be teaming up with The Hulk to battle a new villainess.
Also out on 11/3 are Last Flag Flying and LBJ.
The war drama Last Flag Flying stars Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne, and Steve Carell as three men who served in the same Marine unit who 30 years later reunite to attend the funeral of the son of one of the trio who was killed in action during the Iraq War.
Woody Harrelson stars as President Lyndon Johnson in LBJ with the story centering around the political upheaval Vice President Johnson faced as he was thrust into the presidency with the assassination of President Kennedy.
Things don’t slow down for the second weekend of the month. On Friday, November 10th another big sequel comedy will be released. Daddy’s Home 2, with stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg returning as the titular dads but this time around must contend with their own fathers, played by John Lithgow and Mel Gibson.
Also, out on 11/10, is Murder On The Orient Express. The Agatha Christie novel has been made into film previously, but this new version has a stellar cast including Michelle Pfeiffer, Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Willem Defoe, Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz, and Josh Gad among others. It has the look and feel of an excellent adaptation and I am very much looking forward to it.
Last and certainly not least is the super hero blockbuster Justice League, rolling into theaters on Friday November 17th. Wonder Woman will be teaming up with the likes of Batman, Aquaman, and The Flash against the bad guys.
November will of course feature more films than these, but this should wet one’s appetite to see a movie around Thanksgiving.
Have a great November and wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
