November brings plenty to be thankful for with a cornucopia of options for moviegoers, including (certainly ironically) multiple films about dining, including the foodie satire The Menu and the cannibal coming-of-age story Bones and All. (The latter of which won Best Director and Best Young Actress at the Venice Film Festival.)

This month will also see the release of more films off the festival circuit, such as Causeway, The Inspection, and My Policeman — all of which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival — as well as Steven Spielberg's crowd-pleasing The Fabelmans, which won TIFF's top prize.

And then there's Marvel's highly-anticipated Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which will be equal parts superheroic and heartfelt as it pays tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman. Scroll on for more movies hitting theaters and streaming platforms this November.


Having earned her first Oscar nomination for 2010's Winter's Bone, Jennifer Lawrence reconnects with her indie film roots playing a soldier who returns home from Afghanistan with a brain injury.

Causeway marks the feature directorial debut of acclaimed theater director Lila Neugebauer.

A young couple, Margot and Tyler (Anya Taylor-Joy and Nicholas Hoult), travel to a remote island for an exclusive restaurant run by an enigmatic chef (two-time Oscar nominee Ralph Fiennes).
