5 Must See November ‘017 Movies

This is a big month for the box office. Currently dominating the month’s opening weekend records are major franchises Hunger Games, Twilight, and Harry Potter, accounting for 9 of the top 10 money makers. There are at least two films that can make a push for top spot.

Despite the great month of film ahead, I find myself much more excited for a couple of major book releases, including the long-awaited third book of the Stormlight Archives series by Brandon Sanderson, Oathbringer. The other novel that should make waves is Artemis, the highly anticipated sophomore book from Andy Weir, author of The Martian.

Anyways, this is a film series; I am just excited is all. So, let’s take a look at five movies that will get us out to the theatre next month:


Based on the Brian Selznick novel of the same name, Wonderstruck promises childlike excitement. Following two young children from different eras with developing similar paths and mysteries, the film has already seen much praise at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.


Pixar has yet to disappoint me, and by the looks of Coco, it will not be happening anytime soon. This animated film looks bright, colourful, and fun while being themed around the topic of death. An artistically stunning event that will deliver great music, all from Pixar Studios, what is not to be excited about?

Justice League

Well, here it comes. The lead up to Justice League has been big. Despite my well-documented feelings on Bat-fleck, there are some things to get us excited. The return of Wonder Woman is enough to get many fans out but, Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman all look like stunning additions to the franchise. There is still a deep concern on what the final product will look like and right now it could go either way. We will find out soon enough if we get another BvS, or if WW set a new trend.

Murder on the Orient Express

I may, or may not, be too pumped for this movie. Adapted from the classic Agatha Christie series that follows detective Hercule Poirot, the story is simple but a proven winner. Filled out with a star-studded cast including Daisy Ridley, Willem Dafoe, and Michelle Pfeiffer, this will be a slam dunk.

Thor: Ragnarok

Since the moment that first preview dropped, I have been waiting for this MCU film. It looks to add the retro style fun of Guardians with the magic of Thor, and a Planet Hulk storyline added in to make it that much better. This is also the last film of an original Avenger before the pinnacle event of Infinity War. Something big is going to go down.

Thanks, filmnerds, if I miss any of these films, it is because I will be busy reading.

    I was so excited for the superhero movies, I forgot about Murder on the Orient Express! It’s my favorite Agatha Christie book.

    I never thought I ever say this because I always prefer the Marvel movies, but I’m actually looking forward to Justice League (cause of the sexy Aquaman) 🙂

      Haha, he is pretty dreamy! I just cant get myself pumped for Justice League. I will watch but, I am still sceptical.

    Not so sure about Justice League – these DC movies are too dark and dreary
    Thor: Ragnarok was so much fun – more enjoyable than GotG Vol. 2
