Upcoming Releases — November
Here's a look at all the new releases headed our way in November!
Friday, November 4:
Dr. Strange — This is the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it's a bit different than the others. This one focuses on a different plane of existence. Directed by Scott Derrickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, it's one of the most anticipated films of the year.
Hacksaw Ridge — This is the latest film from Mel Gibson. It's about a soldier who refuses to carry a weapon or kill. It's drawn some good reviews and looks like it could be inspirational.
Trolls — A family-friendly entry for November. This one centers on the popular kids toy come alive and features the voices of Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake.
Friday, November 11:
Arrival — Starring Amy Adams, this thriller comes from the director of "Sicario." It's about the arrival of aliens, and what it might mean for humanity. It should be one of the best of the month.
Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk — From director Ang Lee, this drama is about a soldier re-adjusting to life at home after a traumatic incident in battle. It should feature Lee's trademark stunning visuals.
Almost Christmas — This family comedy starring Danny Glover and Gabrielle Union is meant to help get you in the holiday spirit.

All Eyez on Me — This is a biopic of Tupac for those more interested in his life.
Friday, November 18:
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them — This is a story tangential to "Harry Potter" from JK Rowlings. It's likely to kick off a new series of films and could be one of the gems of the fall.
Bleed For This — Starring Miles Teller, this is a biopic of a boxer who, against the odds, fought his way back to the ring.
Edge of Seventeen — This film, from James L. Brooks, is about a girl struggling with her teen years. I like Hailee Stienfeld and Woody Harelson, and the trailer's pretty funny. I have high hopes.
