Upcoming November Movie Releases

It's that time again. What movies are coming out next month you ask? I'm here to tell you.

About Time released November 1.

Alright, so I was going to put the synopsis, but it's massive, so I'm just going to summarize it.

Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) finds out that all the men in his life have the ability to travel through time. He then meets Mary (Rachel McAdams), they fall in love and then due to an unfortunate time travelling incident it's like they've never met at all. They meet again and again, and he uses his time travelling to win her heart. He uses his ability to fix his life (perfect proposal, stop awful best man speeches at his wedding...) but finds out that his ability can't stop him from experiencing the same ups and downs as normal people, and that it could be dangerous too.
I thought it looked kind of cute, it's a different sort of movie than most that are being released nowadays. Fun fact that I learned while looking this movie up, Tim plays Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (also Mad Eye's son :) haha). I'm not sure if I'll end up making it to theatres to see this, I don't think I want to drag my boyfriend to it, but if he's interested or I find a girl friend to go see it with then perhaps I will. On a Tuesday. :)

Next up is Thor: The Dark World released on November 8

Marvel's Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel's Thor and Marvel's The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Thor. Enough said. I have seen all, and own almost all of the Marvel franchise and am actually excited to watch the new ones. I've been hearing from some people that they're not as excited about this one as they were for the others. But since I don't really know much about what's "right" or "wrong" about the adaptations, it doesn't really bother me. I won't be going to see this opening night, but once it dies down a bit I will definitely be checking it out.

Being released on November 22 is Catching Fire

Ok fine, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. If people need to be told it's part of the Hunger Games trilogy, they shouldn't be watching it.

Here's the synopsis

Katniss Everdeen has returned home safely after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way, Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.

If I remember correctly (it's been a while) the first movie was fairly well done in relation to the book, so I'm hoping the second one will be the same.

Last but not least, Frozen is being released on November 27
Fearless optimist Anna sets off on an epic journey-teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven-to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.

This one I haven't really heard or seen much about. But it's Disney, so I will be watching it. From what I have seen, the snowman and the reindeer seem pretty hilarious. Apparently my favourite parts of kids movies are the animals...

Next up are the DVD releases

November 5 is White House Down

Capitol Policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum) has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx). Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation’s government falling into chaos and time running out, it's up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country.

I never actually got a chance to see this in theatres, and I've heard that it was not the greatest movie, so I will not be buying it. However I will somehow find a way to watch it because, duh, Channing Tatum. Fun fact I learned when I was looking up the synopsis, it was filmed in Montreal! Woot! Haha

On November 12 it's a bird, it's a plane, no it's Man of Steel

Ok I know that's not the saying, but who cares.

Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young man who feels alienated from others because he has powers beyond anyone's imagination. Clark, who was transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, struggles with the ultimate question – "Why am I here?" Raised by his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark is shaped by their values and soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. When the world comes under attack, can Clark's abilities be used to maintain peace or will they ultimately be used to divide and conquer? Clark has to become the hero known as "Superman," not only to protect his loved ones but to take his place as the world's last beacon of hope.

This one I did see and very much enjoyed. You can find my full review here. I will be buying this at some point, just probably not right away (I'm being cheap these days) or I may just add it to my Christmas list.

So those are the November movies I'm looking forward to. How about you? Did I miss any of your favourites?


  1. I want to see About Time, Frozen, and Catching Fire. I think there was another one I wanted to see but it may have come out was a sort of romancey type one. Ah well.

    1. I have no idea what movie you're talking about lol.

  2. It *might* be I Give It A Year...can't find anything else that fits and I'm tired of searching, haha
