6 Flicks Picks for November 2017 Movie Release Schedule

Posted by Anthony Mango Wednesday, November 1, 2017
Welcome to another edition of 6 Flicks Picks, wherein I list all of the upcoming films that are scheduled to be released in the United States for the month which is about to begin and break down which ones I'll be watching in theaters, which ones I'll wait to rent at home, and which ones I'll be skipping out on entirely. After going through the list, I'll choose which six films stand out to me as the ones I want to see the most, even if there are more or less than six that interest me.

Note: The list below is based primarily off the expanded nationwide USA release dates on IMDB as well as some other random outlets if possible, so some information may be different. If I am missing some of the limited releases or the dates conflict in some fashion, please let me know in the comments below and any adjustments and corrections will be made!

Without further ado, another new month means another new set of films, so what's coming soon to theaters in November 2017?

Which films make the cut?

6. Coco — This looks more like a Dreamworks type film and not up to the regular Pixar quality, but because it's Pixar, it edges out the others that don't quite make the list, like Wonder and Three Billboards and Chappaquiddick.

5. My Friend Dahmer — I don't know too much about Dahmer, but this trailer kept my interest enough to make me curious about what he was like before what we regularly do know about him, so why not?

4. Thelma — Interesting song for the trailer, someone acquiring powers...okay, this could be a Movie Pass type deal for sure.

3. Murder on the Orient Express — Now we're in the films that I can actually see myself watching in theaters. I had read the book many, many years ago (we're talking like 15+...holy shit I feel old) and I enjoyed it at the time, so there's no reason why I shouldn't want to see a movie adaptation that has such a great cast like this.

2. Thor: Ragnarok — Bought my tickets weeks upon weeks ago. You shouldn't be shocked at all.

1. Justice League — Excuse me, it's fucking Batman. Of course this is #1. I still maintain that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (at least the Ultimate Edition) is fucking awesome, so even though I have my doubts about this being as good as Marvel's The Avengers, it's still one of my most anticipated films of the entire year, behind The Last Jedi.
