It appears that as the summer movie season continues to grow and as a result becomes more and more oversaturated, some big releases are making the journey to the fall in the hopes of capturing the holiday crowd. Whereas past Novembers have featured one, maybe two big releases, there's now a month-long parade of blockbusters.
As far as the box office is concerned, any month that features a highly anticipated YA release and a Marvel movie is sure to be huge, which puts a lot of pressure on the other November releases to pull their share of the pie. Additionally, there are several November releases, like Last Vegas and the animated film Free Birds, that could surprise us, even if they don't look terribly compelling. But really, it comes down to Thor and Hunger Games.
Which films are you looking forward to this month? Do you think Catching Fire or Thor 2 will win the November box office battle?
Once again, here are the 5 movies we're looking forward to this month:
- November 1st: Ender's Game
- November 8th: Thor: The Dark World
- November 22nd: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Delivery Man
- November 27th: Oldboy
