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.

Stars: Naomi Scott, Cote de Pablo, Antonio Banderas
Directed By: Patricia Riggen
Synopsis: Based on the real-life event, when a gold and copper mine collapses, it traps 33 miners underground for 69 days.
Our Two Cents: Painful true story, but it looks like a not so good TV docu-drama.
Stars: Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Mélanie Laurent
Directed By: Angelina Jolie
Synopsis: Set in France during the mid-1970s, Vanessa, a former dancer, and her husband Roland, an American writer, travel the country together. They seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/café-keeper and a hotel owner.
Our Two Cents: Feels like a big drama for Oscar season.
Stars: Tye Sheridan, Michael Cera, Lotte Verbeek
Directed By: Rick Alverson
