Looking for a movie to watch over the Thanksgiving break this year? Well, even though these three have nothing to do with the holiday, here are some movies coming out in the next two weeks!
1. “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2”
Picking up right where the previous “Mockingjay” left off, this movie will be the exciting conclusion to “The Hunger Games” series. Based off of the 2010 young adult novel by Suzanne Collins and directed by Francis Lawrence, this movie returns to the nation of Panem, a futuristic dystopian United States, as the districts are starting to be destroyed by the Capitol.
The reluctant leader of the rebellion, Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, must lead an army against the leader of the nation, President Snow, while trying to keep everything she holds dear safe as well. This movie hits theaters tomorrow, Nov. 20.
2. “The Good Dinosaur”
From the amazing studio of Disney Pixar and directed by Peter Sohn, “The Good Dinosaur” is set in an alternate timeline in which the asteroid never hit Earth. As a result, the dinosaurs never went extinct.
The story centers around a young Apatosaurus (long-neck) named Arlo (voiced by Raymond Ochoa) who loses his father in a tragic accident (thank you, Disney).
As an orphan, he grows up in the Clawed-Tooth Mountains, where he accidently falls into a river and gets knocked out by a rock. Having drifted far downstream, he awakes to find himself far from home. While trying to find his way back, he befriends a human cave boy he names Spot, and the two travel together.
This movie finds its way into theaters Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Yet another take on the old “Frankenstein” tale, directed by Paul McGuigan, this movie is told from the perspective of Igor (played by Daniel Radcliffe), the assistant of Frankenstein.
In this movie, we see more into the troubled past of Igor and his redemptive friendship with the medical student, Viktor Von Frankenstein, and how Igor became the eyewitness to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the legend that we know today.
This story comes to theaters Wednesday, Nov. 25.
