Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Daggers in the Back: The Glass Onion Mystery., Strange World o Pinocchio by Guillermo del Toro are some of the most eagerly awaited movie premieres of the many that are scheduled for this month of November that has just begun. And as not all of them fit, we select as always the most outstanding ones in this, our monthly section, dedicated to the seventh art.
It goes without saying that here we collect, mainly, but not only, the most mainstreamso if you consider yourself a cinephile, this is not your section, nor is this your place. But if you feel like going to the movies and you’re just looking for a friendly reminder of what you’re going to find on the billboard, then yes, it’s going to be useful, beyond Black Panther and so on. And without spoilers!
In fact, to see Black Panther: Wakanda Forever you’ve got to hold on for a week yet, let alone. Daggers in the Back: The Glass Onion Mystery.. However, you have interesting movie releases starting now and if you don’t want to wait or if you prefer to watch it all at home, you can find them every week in the online platforms at New VOD releases.
November 3 and 4 movie releases
Later today, November 3, the first of the releases scheduled for this month is released in theaters and you can see which one it is: One Piece Film Reda new film -the fifteenth already- based on the popular adventure anime.
If you’re not in the mood for cartoons and feel like something more serious, Friday comes to the big screen. The prodigyan Irish production directed by Chilean Sebastián Lelio (Disobedience, Gloria Bell) and starring Florence Pugh (Midsommar, Black widow) in which you’ll find sobriety and mystery in equal parts. From film to Netflix goes this one.
Another one going from movies to Netflix is. Bardo, false chronicle of a few truths.. The new film by Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman, The Reborn) is a dramedy with groundbreaking pretensions and awards aspirations that, against all odds, is not very well received by those who have had the opportunity to see it at festivals.
If you are into Spanish cinema, there are several premieres this weekend, although No mires a los ojos is in all likelihood the most outstanding. A drama with hints of thriller directed by Félix Viscarret (Patria) and starring Paco León (Aida, The plague), Juan Diego Botto (Stories of the Kronen, Martin (Hache)) or Leonor Watling (Talk to Her, The Oxford Crimes), among others.
November 11 movie releases
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
For the weekend of the second week of November comes what is set to be the blockbuster of the month: Black Panther: Wakanda Foreverthe sequel to the soporific, but successful Black Panther original, without the great asset of the same, the sadly deceased Chadwick Boseman. And they don’t point to any improvement the trailer, but to Caesar what is Caesar’s.
The best is the new film by Rodrigo Sorogoyen (Riot Control, Stories to keep you awake), a Spanish-French co-production set in deep Galicia in the form of a rural drama with a touch of suspense and a touch of social denunciation that may sound like a hodgepodge, because it is, but it had a devastating preview among critics.
Another European dramedy that is making waves, though not in all cases for the better is. Memories of Paristhe French production chosen to represent the country at the next Oscar Awards ceremony. As a backdrop, the Islamic terrorism suffered in France in the last decade.
A different kind of animation with a lot of history and legend to its credit: Icarus and the Minotaura Luxembourg production for the whole family that may be a risky bet, but at least it feels fresh. An interesting game would come out of the plot the visual style that it proposes.
November 18 movie releases
For the penultimate week of November, we expect the premiere of Armageddon Timethe new film by James Gray (Ad Astra, The lost city of Z) and one that comes preceded by excellent reviews and looks set to sweep the awards season. It’s a hackneyed drama, but well-crafted by all accounts and with a top-notch cast: Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables, Interstellar), Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs, Remainder of the day), Jessica Chastain (Molly’s Game, Secrets of a marriage)…
Just past Halloween there are scarce scary releases, but there is something. Starring Christina Ricci (The Addams Family, Sleepy Hollow), Monsters is a thriller whose trailer, you get the feeling, has a hint of deception in it, so perhaps it was necessary to add a psychological… But you never know.
Let there be no lack of action either: The Perfect Muggerthe new film from Allan Ungar, best known for directing the fan film of Uncharted than for everything else he’s done. For this one, however, he surrounds himself with a casting powerhouse led by Josh Duhamel (Like life itself, Jupiter’s Legacy), Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Lethal Weapon) or Elisha Cuthbert (The House of Wax, 24), among others.
Kings vs. Santa is a Spanish comedy for the whole family whose title says it all and whose proposal smells like an unmitigated bodrio… But bodrios also entertain and not only that. If not, tell that to Amazon, which has kept it with the purpose of releasing it on Prime Video this Christmas, taking advantage of the time. A freaky movie that, if there is anything weird about it, is that they talk about Santa and not Santa Claus…
Movie releases on November 23, 24 and 25.
For the penultimate week of November, the last for all practical purposes as far as movie releases are concerned, the most outstanding bet is that of Daggers in the Back: The Mystery of Glass Onion, a Netflix production and sequel to the original 2019 title. Another black comedy in which Rian Johnson repeats in the direction and Daniel Craig in the leading role, who will be accompanied by a huge cast full of familiar faces: Edward Norton (Fight Club, American History X), Ethan Hawke (Gattaca, Training Day), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, Dune), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist, The Matrix Resurrections)…
And more Netflix movies you’re going to be able to see earlier in theaters: Pinocchio by Guillermo del Toro. An adaptation of the children’s classic somewhat in the style of the recent Guillermo del Toro’s cabinet of curiosities.with the Mexican director’s name in the first line, which may well mean that his vision tarnishes everything… And it doesn’t have to be bad, quite the contrary. It’s a Stop Motion animated film, but after Disney’s absolute disaster with its sketchy live-action adaptation, as if he shot it with chopsticks.
Speaking of Disney, at the end of the month it releases. Strange Worlda new animated film as part of his classic feature films, which is being produced by the studio of Encanto and Don Hall, responsible for titles such as Big Hero 6, Vaiana or the more recent Raya and the last dragon. From film to Disney+, of course, with the standard margin.
Month ends level hardcore like The woman kinga period story supposedly based on real events with very modern ingredients: bad whites, good blacks, empowered women… In all fairness, it takes up the terrible European presence in Africa and, instead of forcing any inclusion, puts the real protagonists where they belong, with a strong cast: Viola Davis (How to Defend a Murderer, Fences), John Boyega (Star Wars, Pacific Rim: Uprising), Lashana Lynch (No Time to Die, Captain Marvel), Thuso Mbedu (The Underground Railroad, Scandal!)… Heads will roll.
The icing on the cake is this: Swiss-produced frikada del quince… like cheese itself. Or like Heidi herself, the angelic character who, in this new adaptation, takes not one, not two, but a few more twists and turns. In a nutshell, Mad Heidi “it’s the milk, it’s brutal”… literally: comedy, horror, gore and more, all in the trashy way, in your trusted cinema.
