The 5 cinema releases that you need to watch in November

With the festive period on the horizon, November boasts some of the biggest pre-Christmas releases including one of the biggest sequels of the year.

With a few other blockbusters and some more diverse releases, here are the releases you need to see this month.

Frozen 2 - 22nd November

The first film was a juggernaut success - winning two Oscars, two Grammys and grossing over $1.2bn as the song 'Let It Go' became lodged into the brains of children and their grudging parents the world over.

The sequel is set three years after the first film, with Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Hans, his pet moose Sven and loveable snowman Olaf heading north to discover the origin of Elsa's powers to save their kingdom.

With Disney putting all their weight behind this sequel, if it's anywhere near as good as the original, it's going to be another runaway hit.


Doctor Sleep - 1st November

Ewan McGregor plays 'Dan' Torrance, as he returns to the Overlook Hotel 39 years after Jack Nicholoson's legendarily unhinged performance as his father Jack.

Dan meets a young girl who shares his 'Shining' powers, and the pair a life-or-death battle battle against a cult named The True Knot who prey on children with powers to become immortal.

The feedback has been glowing, including from the book's author Stephen King, who notoriously hated Kubrick's version of The Shining, as this could be set to rival the original for popularity.


Knives Out - 29th November

Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has turned his attention to the murder mystery genre, writing and directing the new star-studded murder mystery Knives Out.

When a renowned crime novelist (Christopher Plummer) is found dead, a detective (Daniel Craig) is drafted in to investigate his death and the eccentric and dysfunctional family of the deceased.

With a cast boasting the likes of Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon and Toni Collette, married with Johnson's skills with writing and directing, this could be the best whodunnit of the last 30 years.


Le Mans '66 - 15th November

Christian Bale has been at his body-transforming best again, this time losing 70lbs to play racing driver Ken Miles in Logan director James Mangold's story  about the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans race.

Matt Damon plays American car designer Carroll Shelby, who teams up with driver Ken Miles to build a car for Ford that can topple serial winners Ferrari at the 24 Hour race at Le Mans.

Already boasting a positive reception from early reviews, with it being labelled a gripping human drama, and lavishing praise on Bale and Damon's performances.


The Good Liar - 8th November

Dreamgirls director Bill Condon has drafted in two of Britain's finest acting talent in the form of Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen for this drama-thriller based on Nicholas Searle's bestselling novel.

McKellan plays a career conman who meets a well-to-do widow in the form of Helen Mirren, and as he plies his long con on her, finds himself caring for her and putting his situation into jeopardy.

Carving out a different option to blockbusters Doctor Sleep and Frozen 2, The Good Liar may end up being the most intriguing and engaging release this month.
