Terminator Dark Fate

Here’s what should be on your cinematic radar this month!

November brings a host of new movie releases to please sci-fi franchise lovers, mystery aficionados, and crime-thriller fans. We’ve rounded up the biggest and best movies you need to see this month:

Terminator: Dark Fate

Release date: 1 November 2019

While the whole Terminator movie timeline has become a bit of a tricky one to follow, the latest entry into the franchise brings things back to the sweet-spot of the series, as Terminator: Dark Fate picks up right after and is the chronological sequel to the franchise’s best film, Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (T-800) return in their iconic roles from the first two films, with Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta also joining in on the action. James Cameron is on producing duties, while Deadpool‘s Tim Miller directs this one.

Doctor Sleep

Release date: 8 November 2019

IT Chapter 2 wasn’t the only Stephen King adaptation arriving in 2019, as Doctor Sleep makes its big-screen appearance in November. Acting as a follow-up to The Shining (which was released 39 years ago), the film follows Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor), the young psychic boy from the The Shining, who is now in his midlife suffering from alcoholism. Coming from Mike Flanagan, the man behind Netflix’s Gerald’s Game and The House on Haunted Hill, There’s no doubt that this will be full of mind-bending and haunting moments.

Black and Blue

Release date: 8 November 2019

Black and Blue is a fast-paced action thriller about a rookie cop (Naomie Harris) who inadvertently captures the murder of a young drug dealer on her body cam. After realising that the murder was committed by corrupt cops, she teams up with the one person from her community who is willing to help her (Tyrese Gibson) as she tries to escape both the criminals out for revenge and the police who are desperate to destroy the incriminating footage.

Charlie’s Angels

Release date: 15 November 2019

After a successful reboot franchise in the early 2000s, the iconic crime-fighting trio of Charlie’s Angels gets another reinvigoration, with Kristin Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska making up the cast, with Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect) in the director’s chair. It looks like a fun take on the franchise, and should bring some fun back to the series.


Release date: 15 November 2019

Playing on the idea that there’s an app for everything, Countdown explores a supernatural mobile app which can predict the day you’re doing to die. Of course, this results in some silly soon-to-be-victims to download it out of curiosity, only to learn that its more than an elaborate prank. This should appeal to fans of the Final Destination series.

Ford v Ferrari

Release date: 22 November 2019

In Ford v Ferrari, Matt Damon takes on the role of Ford vehicle designer Carroll Shelby with Christian Bale as his British driver Ken Miles as the two join forces to try and unseat Ferrari in the 1966 edition of the Le Mans race. Ford v Ferrari is directed by James Mangold (Logan) and also stars Jon Bernthal (The PunisherThe Walking Dead), Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), and Noah Jupe (Honey Boy), and will hit theatres in November.

21 Bridges

Release date: 29 November 2019

Starring Chadwick Boseman as an NYPD detective on a citywide manhunt, 21 Bridges is the first post-Avengers: Endgame movie which is in line with the likes of Street Kings and The Departed. Fans who enjoy crime-thrillers should keep 21 Bridges on their radar to see Boseman flex his acting skills out of the Black Panther catsuit.

Knives Out

Release date: 29 November 2019

Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in Knives Out, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death.
