November is over flowing with movies to see, with more side dishes than the best Thanksgivings meal we are invited to see old friends (The Peanuts Movie, Spectre, Creed and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2), some fresh, new, possibly Oscar worthy fare (Carol, The Danish Girl, Trumbo, Spotlight and Brooklyn) and few that just are too enticing to miss(The Secret In Their Eyes, The Night Before and Legend). So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.
