6 Flicks Picks for November 2018 Movie Release Schedule

Posted by Anthony Mango Thursday, November 1, 2018
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 2018?

Which films make the cut?

6. Shoplifters — I was going to give this spot to Bohemian Rhapsody, but then I checked out the trailer for Shoplifters. Something about that caught me. I'm not sure what, especially since I usually don't bother with foreign language films, but I honestly may go out of my way to watch this.

5. Widows — My original thoughts after seeing this trailer at the movies was "bad ass" and even though I don't think it'll be something that will win any Oscars, I could see it being one of those films where people are surprised at how good it is and a few actors having some buzz about nominations, even if they don't get them.

4. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald — This is a case where I've seen so many other films in the franchise and I enjoyed most of them, so I'm just going to continue watching them until it really annoys me. Fantastic Beasts wasn't anything special to me, so I'm not holding out hope for this to be great. But what the hell, right? Magic's never been my thing but Harry Potter was solid.

3. Ralph Breaks the Internet — I really enjoyed most of Wreck-It Ralph. This doesn't look anywhere near as good, but the trailers could just be doing it a disservice. Can't judge it until I see it, so there's no reason for me not to give it a shot.

2. Robin Hood — I'm probably going to regret this, but I legitimately want to see this movie. I don't even really know why. I can't put my finger on what it is that makes this different from every other adaptation of this and King Arthur and all the other similar things. Maybe it's just Taron Egerton. That guy's so good and I really want his stardom to just blow up.

1. Creed II — As a whole, I enjoy the Rocky series more than each individual film. By that, I mean I can't really ever feel the need to want to put on Rocky III or something, but the overall arc of this franchise is amazing if it were condensed into one movie, so to speak. Creed II capitalizing on bringing Drago back is just the right type of fan service. Give it to me.
