HBO NOW New Releases for November 2018

November on HBO NOW

Just like almost every month, a Time Warner giant opens with several blockbuster movies to be streamed this November with a couple of exciting movie premieres, a new foreign-language series, and the return of the Duplass brothers’ anthology show, Room 104. High-profile films making their HBO debut this month include a sci-fi sequel Pacific Rim Uprising and a horror prequel Annabelle: Creation, as well as an erotic thriller Fifty Shades Freed. Several movies also leave the platform so this is your last chance to see Charlize Theron’s action-packed spy film Atomic Blonde, as well as Harry Potter spinoff feature Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

List of shows

The full list of shows that will appear this November on HBO NOW can be found right below but we would like to recommend a couple of movies that will definitely be worth your time.

Our recommendations

1. A Cure for Wellness - delightfully bizarre, absurdly violent and grotesque movie by Gore Verbinski. A nod to the line of movies with the mad scientist conducting experiments that “defy god and nature” in a picturesque old castle. A horror epic which will not disappoint.

2. Darkest Hour – a biographic drama with an absolutely amazing role of Gary Oldman depicting Winston Churchill. This year’s Academy Awards double winner and four-times nominee – speaks for itself. A must-watch.

3. A Perfect World – a 1993 classic directed by Clint Eastwood starring Kevin Costner telling a compelling story of an unusual friendship between a kidnapped boy and his captor with delicate, nostalgic use of the Texas countryside, as well as the natural performances of the actors. A very good movie.

4. Atomic Blonde – a rollercoaster of a movie with Charlize Theron as a super-spy and James McAvoy set in a Cold War era Berlin. A female version of Jason Bourne crossed with John Wick, which makes it even more attractive to watch.

5. War for the Planet of the Apes – the latest and definitely the most impressive instalment of the Planet of the Apes franchise with yet another awesome role of Andy Serkis and special effects that will make you gasp. Look at this featurette and come back to HBO NOW to see the entire movie.

6. Pacific Rim: Uprising - the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi monster epic starring Star Wars hero John Boyega. Although the movie did not necessarily gain a lot of critical appraisal but it is pure adrenaline-pumped action just when you want to relax and not dive too deep into the meanders of a human soul.

7. Tomb Raider – a new take on a legendary game heroine Lara Croft made famous by the line of movies with Angelina Jolie, now played by Alicia Vikander. Fun to watch and worth checking out, if only for comparing purposes.

8. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – another this year’s double Oscar winner with unforgettable roles of Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson. A deeply morally serious movie in a volatile comedy-drama style showing a universal human tragedy in a microcosmic world of a small town.

9. The Lego Batman Movie – something for the kids. Although not a serious movie as you probably suspect, it does, however, genuinely care about the Batman mythos making it one of the most surprisingly authentic Batman movies ever made. Lots of fun anyway.

10. American Made – an action biography comedy in a typical catch-me-if-you-can spirit with infallible Tom Cruise as an American pilot who became a drug-runner for the CIA in the 1980s in a clandestine operation that would be exposed as the Iran-Contra Affair. Good old Tom.

Limited acces

All those shows will be available in November but, as you probably know, they may not be available everywhere. Because of geographical restrictions, the best streaming services are limited to certain locations, mostly to the US. What it practically means is that if you happen to be outside the United States, you will get the message that content is not available for your location…
