MoviedfiedNYC’s Opening this Weekend November 22 and on Thanksgiving November 27

Mary J Blige in Black Nativity
November is chock full of family, friends, holiday plans, and movies to see. While you’re deciding on which recipe you will use for the stuffing or if three pumpkin pies are enough, take a break and head to the movie theaters which are overstuffed (pun intended) with amazing autumn fare–About Time, Last Vegas, Free Birds, The Book Thief, Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Frozen, Mr. Nobody, Black Nativity, Nebraska, and Old Boy, are just a few that have caught my eye. You certainly don’t want to cram all these in right before awards season begins. So, whether you choose to check out that indie you heard so much about or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.

Delivery Man 

Delivery Man
This American remake of the French Canadian film Starbuck features Vince Vaughn as the likeable underachiever David Wozniak, whose life is turned upside down when he finds out that he fathered 533 children through sperm donations he made twenty years earlier. He tries to find solace in anonymously helping his kids as a sort of guardian angel.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (IMAX) 

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
75th Annual Hunger Games puts previous victors back in the arena. There is clearly a bigger budget on display this time around with more of the Capitol to see, some impressive effects shots, a very menacing Donald Sutherland, and just a tease of the action that kicks off the new games themselves.

Philomena (Limited)

Philomena
British filmmaker Stephen Frears is getting rave reviews saying that Philomena is his best work since The Queen. The film stars 78-year-old Oscar winning actress Judi Dench as Philomena Lee, a woman searching for her son, who was taken away from her decades ago after she became pregnant and was forced to live in a convent. Steve Coogan stars as a “world-weary journalist” assigned to her story that joins in the search.

The Christmas Candle

The Christmas Candle

Deep in the heart of the English countryside lies the enchanting village of Gladbury. Legend has it every 25 years an angel visits the village candle-maker and touches a single candle. Whoever lights this candle receives a miracle on Christmas Eve. But in 1890, at the dawn of the electric age, this centuries old legend may come to an end. Based on the book by international bestselling author, Max Lucado, who also makes a cameo in the film.



November 27 (Wednesday – Thanksgiving)
Black Nativity

Black Nativity
Black Nativity is the big screen adaptation of Langston Hughes’ 1961 Broadway musical with Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett, will sing on the big screen in the musical adaptation with Jennifer Hudson. The story follows a young black teen from Baltimore who is sent by his single mother to Harlem to spend Christmas with the grandparents he’s never met. Through his grandfather’s Christmas Eve sermon and a stylized, dream-sequence retelling of the classic Nativity story, he learns about the importance of faith and family. I’ve got to be honest here, I can’t wait to hear Samuel L. Jackson sing! 

Frozen (3D)
Frozen
Kristen Bell seems to be a great new animated leading lady, and Josh Gad will be cracking people up as that little snowman. However, if the quest is to bring summer back, what’s going to happen to him when all the snow goes away? 

Homefront
Director Gary Fleder’s new crime thriller Homefront, puts Jason Statham against James Franco. As a retired DEA agent, Statham finds himself confronting a crime ring led by Franco when their children get into a schoolyard confrontation. When Franco aims to gets some dirt on the new small town resident, he learns he’s an undercover cop and assumes he’s there to bust him. Oh, and look at white trash Kate Bosworth!

Oldboy MoviefiedNYC’s Most Anticipated

Oldboy

Fans of Chan-wook Park‘s revenge film Oldboy have been eager to see what director Spike Lee does with his take on the original manga property. Josh Brolin leads the film as a kidnapped advertising executive held captive for 20 years. What follows is a grizzly quest for revenge to find out who kidnapped him and why. This is going to be one intense thriller.


Out of the Furnace
In director Scott Cooper’s gritty drama Out of the Furnace. Christian Bale stars in the film as Russell, working a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day, and caring for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell’s brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and disappears. Since the cops can’t get the job done, Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice.
