New Movies Releasing in Theaters This Month

Well, you don’t need my big mouth to tell you that new movies are releasing in theaters this month, but you might need it in case you aren’t sure what all’s coming or in case you don't feel like searching. Allow me to enlighten you, my sweet little movie-loving readers.


Armageddon Time – Starring Anne Hathaway, Anthony Hopkins, and Jeremy Strong (HBO’s Succession), this Focus Features’ coming-of-age story takes place in New York City in the 80s. It’s about a 12-year-old Jewish boy whose rebellious streak gets both him and a Black public-school classmate into serious trouble. Directed by Ad Astra’s James Gray. In theaters Nov. 4

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Perhaps the biggest-title release this month, or the most anticipated, is the Black Panther sequel, Wakanda Forever. One of the biggest films of all time, the Black Panther franchise underwent a restructuring after the 2020 passing of its beloved star, Chadwich Boseman. The plot sees Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. Directed by BP director Ryan Coogler. In theaters Nov. 11

She Said – Another heavy hitter, this Universal Pictures drama tells the true story of the two New York Timesjournalists, Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, whose 2017 investigative reporting brought down the perverted Hollywood producing mogul Harvey Weinstein. Stars Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) and Zoe Kazan (Clickbait, Ruby Sparks). In theaters Nov. 18

The Menu – Who doesn’t love a good psychological thriller, especially with Anya Taylor-Joy (Split, Peaky Blinders)? This one sees her as a select guest at an uber-exclusive restaurant run by a sadistic chef, played by the infamously creepy-when-he-wants-to-be Ralph Fiennes (Red Dragon, The King’s Man), who has more than just a meal planned for his customers. Directed by Mark Mylod (Succession). In theaters Nov. 18

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery – If you loved 2019’s Knives Out, chances are you’ll also love its follow-up. By far the “widest theatrical release in Netflix history” (as reported by Box Office Pro), this mystery-comedy sequel sees Daniel Craig return to the role of Detective Benoit Blanc. Tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) invites his friends for a getaway on his private Greek island. When someone turns up dead, Det. Blanc is put on the case. Also stars Kate Hudson, Kathryn Hahn, Ethan Hawke, Dave Bautista, Serena Williams, Leslie Odom Jr., and Angela Lansbury, among others. In theaters November 23 FOR ONE WEEK ONLY; Airs on Netflix Dec. 23

Strange World – Walt Disney Animation Studios’ latest feature is a trippy little fantasy about a family who gets more than they bargained for while exploring a strange world. Featuring the voices of Jake Gyllenhaal and Dennis Quaid. Directed by Don Hall (Big Hero 6, Moana). In theaters Nov. 23

Devotion – A historical action drama starring Glen Powell (“Hangman” from Top Gun: Maverick) and Jonathan Majors (HBO’s Lovecraft Country) as a pair of fighter pilots—one black, one white—during the Korean War. If you saw TG:M, chances are you loved Hangman, so I wouldn’t balk at seeing this one! In theaters Nov. 23

The Fabelmans – A semi-autobiographical tale of a boy and aspiring filmmaker growing up in 1950s suburbia. Directed and co-written by Spielberg, this is his first feature film writing credit since 2001’s A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Features Michelle Williams as the mother, Paul Dano as the father, Seth Rogen, and newcomers Mateo Zoryon Francis-DeFord and Gabrielle LaBelle (The Predator). In theaters Nov. 23

Bones and All – Starring Taylor Russell (Waves) and, one of my absolute favorite actors to watch, Timothée Chalamet, this film follows two young lovers in 1980s America … who are both cannibals. Directed by Luca Guadiagnino (Call Me By Your Name), this genre-defying title is based on the novel by Camille DeAngelis and co-stars Mark Rylance (The Outfit, The BFG). In theaters Nov. 23
