This month offers loads of movies belonging to a wide plethora of genres. That includes action flicks, dramas, comedies, horror, adventure, sci-fi, and thrillers.

Some of them include Netflix original movies, such as: Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey a family musical; The Princess Switch: Switched Again a romantic comedy; Hillbilly Elegy a drama; The Christmas Chronicles 2 a comedy, and also a few other new movies.

Most of the VOD releases are also opening in select theatres before, or simultaneously, launching on digital platforms.
In the last three months, many theatres across various countries are reopened and new movies are getting released wherever theaters are available, instead of waiting for other theaters to come back in full form. But in the next two months, many are planning to close once again. Some November movies have a limited release in select theaters before they head to streaming, while others are having as wide a release possible. Those are Let Him Go a drama, Freaky a comedy thriller, Ammonite a romantic drama, and DreamWorks Animations’ The Croods: A New Age an adventure comedy film.
