November 2018 Movie Guide


These are my picks (complete with the reason for my choice) for the movies coming to
theaters in November, but feel free to check out all of November's releases by visiting


week of November 2

Synopsis: A young girl is transported into a magical world of gingerbread soldiers
and an army of mice.
Why? This will probably be a fun holiday movie to see with the family.

Synopsis: A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen's legendary appearance
at the Live Aid (1985) concert.
Director: Bryan Singer
Why? I'm assuming this is going to be amazing.


week of November 9

Synopsis: A grumpy Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the village of Whoville.
Why? It's the Grinch, and it's animated! What's not to love?

Synopsis: Young computer hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael
Blomkvist find themselves caught in a web of spies, cybercriminals and corrupt
government officials.
Director: Fede Alvarez
Why? The first one was great. New cast and director, so hopefully this will
be good too.

Synopsis: The story of two American soldiers behind enemy lines on D Day.
Director: Julius Avery
Why? I'm cautiously optimistic.


week of November 16

Synopsis: The second installment of the "Fantastic Beasts" series set in J.K.
Rowling's Wizarding World featuring the adventures of magizoologist Newt
Scamander.
Director: David Yates
Why? More stories in the world of Harry Potter? Sign me up!

Synopsis: Set in contemporary Chicago, amidst a time of turmoil, four women
with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands'
criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future
on their own terms.
Director: Steve McQueen
Why? This looks like it could be a nice, dark drama.


week of November 23

Synopsis: Six years after the events of "Wreck-It Ralph", Ralph and Vanellope,
now friends, discover a wi-fi router in their arcade, leading them into a new
adventure.
Why? This is exactly what I want to see Thanksgiving weekend!

Synopsis: A war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander mount an
audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure
packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a
timeless romance.
Director: Otto Bathurst
Why? Honestly, there are quite a few good movies out this week, but I'm
a sucker for Robin Hood stories. Let's see how good this modern take is.


week of November 30

Synopsis: A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven - at
Christmas - forcing Anna and her friends to fight, slash and sing their way to
survival, facing the undead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. But
they soon discover that no one is safe in this new world, and with civilization
falling apart around them, the only people they can truly rely on are each other.
Director: John McPhail
Why? Just because.

Synopsis: When a cop who is just out of rehab takes the graveyard shift in a city
hospital morgue, she faces a series of bizarre, violent events caused by an evil
entity in one of the corpses.

Why? This is a different take on possession stories. After the exorcism
goes wrong, the possessed girl's body is taken to the morgue… but has the
demon really left?
