Justice League, Lady Bird, Bad Moms Christmas and all of the movies you need to see this November!


November might just be the most exciting month of the year thus far when it comes to going to the movies. Finally all of those highly anticipated blockbusters, awards-buzzed indies, and holiday season films are hitting the big screen.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the fall season, a good way to take a break from your early Christmas shopping is to chill out with a great movie—and November offers plenty that we’d whole-heartedly recommend.

Check out our list of the movies you need to see in theatres this month!

Thor: Ragnarok

Release Date: November 3rd, 2017

For fans of: Marvel, Neon, Evil Cate Blanchett

See it in: IMAX 3D

See it with: Your sibling rival

The new Thor film looks like it’s taking a giant swing in a neon-coloured direction. Clearly taking inspiration from fellow Marvel entry Guardians of the Galaxy, we’re excited to see a more fun and upbeat version of the formerly more Shakespearean inspired character played by Chris Hemsworth. In the film we’ll find out what was going on with him and The Hulk while the rest of The Avengers were busy in Civil War. We’re also stoked to see Cate Blanchett enter the franchise as villain Hela, and Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster who oversees the epic battle between Hulk and Thor.


Bad Moms Christmas

Release Date: November 3rd, 2017

For fans of: Moms behaving badly at Christmas time

See it in: VIP

See it with: Your best mom friends

Bad Moms was an unexpected smash hit last year, and we can’t wait to see the reunion of characters played by Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. It turns out audiences love moms who behave badly, and we’re in for much more when their moms join the party, played by Cheryl Hines, Christine Baranski and Susan Sarandon. We’re counting on this to be the best comedy of the Christmas season.


The Killing of a Sacred Deer
(Limited)

Release Date: November 3rd, 2017

For fans of: Suspense, Colin Farrell giving his best dead pan, Deers

See it in: A packed theatre

See it with: A friend

One of our favourite movies out of the Toronto International Film Festival was this extremely messed up tale from Greek provocateur Yorgos Lanthimos. A director known for trying to shock audiences, as he has with previous films Dogtooth and The Lobster, he’s taking things to a whole new level with The Killing of a Sacred Deer. You’d be better off not knowing much going into this, other than that it’s a tale of revenge with a creepy performance from Dunkirks Barry Keoghan, and with Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman doing some of their best work as a couple in distress. Be prepared to watch this one on the edge of your seat.


Novitiate

Release Date: November 3rd, 2017

For dans of: Nuns, Critiques, Razor-sharp Melissa Leo performances

See it in: VIP

See it with: A friend

On the surface, Novitiate is a film about what the process of becoming a nun is like, which in itself is an intriguing topic rarely portrayed in films. What we get is so much more—a rich story filled with complicated characters and with an almost exclusively female cast, lead by the extraordinary, villainous Melissa Leo as Reverend Mother. This was another film that was saw at TIFF, and it’s definitely a must-see, if not for the breakout performances by its talented cast, then for the universal themes and what it has to say about the way women are treated in society.


Murder on the Orient Express

Release Date: November 10th, 2017

For fans of: Agatha Christie, Murder, Trains

See it in: VIP

See it with: Your Parents

An Agatha Christie adaptation, re-imagined for the second time by Kenneth Branagh, with a star-studded cast, where do we sign up? This holiday season, we feel like this will be the film to see with the family, as it’s a good old-fashioned crime story, and your parents may even be nostalgic for the original 1974 version. This cast includes Daisy Ridley, Josh Gad, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe and Dame Judi Dench…just to name a few.


Wonder

Release Date: November 17th, 2017

For fans of: Jacob Tremblay, The book, Uplifting stories

See it with: Family

The best-selling children’s novel Wonder ​​was a phenomenon partly because it promoted self-love and acceptance. The film follows Auggie (Jacob Tremblay) who has a facial disease called mandibulofacial dystosis. He is entering a public school for the first time and is scared of how others will treat him. The cast also features Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson and the film is directed by author turned filmmaker Stephen Chbosky, who himself wrote one of the defining coming of age novels, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower.


Justice League

Release Date: November 17th, 2017

For fans of: DC, Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor

See it in:
IMAX 3D

See it with:
Your crew

Wonder Woman was one of the biggest films of the year, and we're lucky enough to get a double dose of the iconic character with Justice League. However, we can't forget that there's also Batman, The Flash, Cyborg and Superman, and we can't wait to see this crew get together for the first time on the big screen. The film takes place after the events of Batman v. Superman, and will likely be an extravagant spectacle, best suited for IMAX 3D.


Lady Bird

Release Date: November 17th, 2017

For fans of: Greta Gerwig, Steven Sondheim, Coming of Age stories

See it with: Your Mom

Greta Gerwig's directorial debut Lady Bird is one of the most relatable coming-of-age films we've ever seen. That's partly because of the impeccably authentic relationship between Lady Bird (Saoirse Ronan) and her mom (Laurie Metcalf). The film is an examination of this mother-daughter relationship first and foremost, but is also a sincere tribute to feeling out of place in your home, learning who you are, and finding out who is really there for you. Also, it's absolutely hilarious and will likely make you cry.


Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Release Date: November 17th, 2017

For fans of: Martin Mcdonagh, Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell

See it in: VIP

See it with: A good friend

This year's Peoples Choice Winner at the Toronto International Film Festival, Three Billboards is a seeing dark comedy with a lot of heart. The film gives Frances McDormand yet another role that could win her an Oscar, as the mother of a teenage girl who was brutally raped and murdered. When the local police department fails to catch the murderer, Mildred (McDormand) takes matters into her own hands by putting up three giant billboards to call out the Police Chief Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) for his lack of action. We're counting on Three Billboards to be one of the most celebrated films of the year.

Coco

See it in: 3D

See it with: Your family

Disney and Pixar's latest film will be a colourful and musical adventure centered around the Land of the Dead.
