After a number of good films came out in September and October, there are still a number of Oscar-worthy films coming right after Halloween. There is something for everybody, whether it be sci-fi, war movie, and even an animated film for kids. Here’s the list of the 5 most anticipated films in November.
Benedict Cumberbatch headlines the month of November not as Sherlock Holmes, but as the Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange. Through the guidance of the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), he battles evil forces that try to control the world. The film also stars Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Doctor Strange will be hitting the theaters on November 4.
Dreamworks fights with Marvel on November 4 with this animated adaptation of the 90’s most popular toys. Hopefully, the story will be as cute as the little creatures themselves and bring back happy memories of childhood. Trolls have a powerhouse cast that lent their voices to the animated film, including Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Gwen Stefani, and Russel Brand.
