Among other things, November will bring us a bunch of sequels, plus one movie that sounds like it must be a sequel but actually isn’t.
‘Big Hero 6’ (Nov. 7)
For a few years now, Disney Animation Studios has pumprf out better “Pixar movies” than Pixar. ‘Big Hero 6’ appears to follow suit. All you need to know is that it’s about a kid and his robot… and his group of friends who all become makeshift superheroes.
And see the first clip here:
‘Interstellar’ (Nov. 7)
Each passing hour brings us closer to ‘Interstellar’. Christopher Nolan returns with an epic sci-fi drama set in the very near future when the Earth is dying. To potentially save mankind, Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway head off on an space travel mission in search of the answer to Earth’s crisis. In the process, McConaughey leaves behind his children, knowing that if/when he returns, they’ll be much older. Movies with long runtimes can be a drag, but I’m praying that this one pushes three hours. I’m well aware that sci-fi movies never take home the important Oscars, but, dammit, Nolan deserves it.
‘The Theory of Everything’ (Nov. 7)
The director of ‘Man on Wire’ gives us the bio-pic about Stephen and Jane Hawking. Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones star as the brilliant couple whose love thrived through the body-crippling disease that couldn’t break the most scientifically intelligent man who ever lived.
‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1’ (Nov. 21)
The ‘Hunger Games’ franchise stepped up in a big way last year with ‘Catching Fire‘. Here’s hoping that Katniss can keep it going in the first part of the franchise’s climax.
‘The Imitation Game’ (Nov. 21)
Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the genius mathematician tasked with cracking Germany’s secret code during World War II. Keira Knightley and Matthew Goode co-star in this historical drama from the Norwegian director of ‘Headhunters’.
‘Horrible Bosses 2’ (Nov. 26)
After watching the teaser trailer, the ‘Horrible Bosses‘ sequel looks like it’s going the route of the ‘Hangover’ follow-ups: a carbon copy, ad-libbed rewrite. At the same time, the first movie is so funny that there’s a glimmer of hope that part two will be just as funny while being original. With Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine joining the cast as the new horrible bosses, I hope that the yet-to-be-released full trailer will distance the sequel from the first. All of the “surviving” original cast, including Jamie Foxx, return.
‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’ (Nov. 26)
Didn’t Vinnie Chase already make this movie in ‘Entourage’? If you need to see a longer version, Benicio Del Toro takes on the role of the notorious drug lord. Josh Hutcherson stars as a Canadian surfer who gets mixed up with the wrong girl while vacationing in Colombia. Her uncle just so happens to be the biggest cartel boss of all time. Will this Pablo Escobar movie be a success, or will it fail as badly as Chase’s fictional ‘Medellin’?
