While we are not able to see most of this year's blockbusters on the big screen, we can find solace in the decent number of new films that are expected to be released on our VOD streaming platforms this November!


As streaming platforms are producing Oscar-worthy titles with an A-list cast, here we've compiled 5 of the must-watch interesting looking original films coming to you this month!

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (Netflix) - 13 Nov

This is truly a special one that signifies the changing of times. Led by an entirely African American cast, it's about time we got a Christmas movie that plays an important part in representation. Forrest Whitaker plays a toymaker whose most-prized creation is stolen by his apprentice, Keegan-Michael Key. Also look for original songs by John Legend, Usher and more!

Small Axe (Amazon Prime) - 20 Nov

Although there are 5 parts to this title, each one is a full-length film rather than episodes. The anthology films, Lovers Rock, Mangrove, Red White and Blue, Alex Wheatle and Education features some familiar faces like Letitia Wright, John Boyega and more. All the films are written and directed by Steve McQueen.

Hillbilly Elegy (Netflix) - 24th Nov

This potential Oscar nominee film by Ron Howard stars an impressive cast of Amy Adams, Glenn Close, Freida Pinto and more. It starts with a Yale graduate returning home in the Appalachia region of US where he reflects on his own childhood and his future. Based on the best-selling memoir of the same name, you don't want to miss this purely for the acting chops of Amy Adams and Glenn Close who get about as hillbilly as they can get.

Uncle Frank (Amazon Prime) - 25 Nov

This comedy drama by Alan Ball stars Paul Bettany and Sophia Lilis. Set in the 70s, the film follows the journey of a gay man who has to face his past. The film co-stars Stephen Root, Margo Martindale, Steve Zahn, Judy Greer and Lois Smith.

Superintelligence (HBO) - 26 Nov

Mellissa McCarthy returns in a new comedy this month! McCarthy stars as a woman who thinks she is going mad when all her electronics start to communicate with her. Turns out she has been selected by the world's first android superintelligence to be observed for eventual world dominance.
