Starting on Nov. 4, new shows and movies will be coming out for the month.

With October having flown by and the year rolling into its penultimate month, the release calendar is still going strong. Shows like “Andor,” “Atlanta,” and “The White Lotus” still have new episodes left on their docket, but for those in the mood for the latest premieres, here’s a look at what’s coming to screens big and small this November.

In the most immediate future is a rather stacked movie weekend on Nov. 4. Hitting theaters is “Armageddon Time,” a 1980-set historical drama from director James Gray (Ad Astra). Anne Hathaway, Jeremy Strong, and Anthony Hopkins headline the cast. Making their way onto streaming are “Enola Holmes 2,” landing on Netflix two years after its predecessor, “My Policeman,” a Harry Styles romantic drama available on Amazon Prime Video, and “Causeway,” A24’s psychological drama featuring Jennifer Lawrence and Brian Tyree Henry, on Apple TV+.

Arguably the most noteworthy release left on the 2022 calendar, Marvel’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will come storming through cinemas on Nov. 11. A sequel to one of America’s top 10 highest grossing films of all time, the cap-off to the fourth phase of the MCU, and what is ultimately shaping up to be the studio’s tribute to Chadwick Boseman, expect “Black Panther 2” to make an impact one way or another.

The month’s TV landscape will be mostly dominated by Netflix. The calendar holds new episodes of “Manifest” (Nov. 4), “The Crown” (Nov. 9), “Dead to Me” (Nov. 17), and “Inside Job” (Nov. 18). Two new series will also drop on the platform : “Blockbuster,” a workplace comedy from the writers of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” about the world’s last Blockbuster video store, and “Wednesday,” an Addams Family spin-off featuring Jenna Ortega in the title role. Release dates are Nov. 3 and 23 respectively.

As much content as Netflix has, they aren’t the only service with new releases lined up. Disney+ will be premiering a sequel to “Enchanted” on Nov. 18 and the “Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special” a week later. “Willow,” a fantasy series from Lucasfilm, will also debut there on Nov. 30. “Titans” returns to HBO Max, the new season kicking off on Nov. 3, and Paramount+ will begin airing the fifth season of “Yellowstone” on Nov. 13.

The final two weekends of the month will have theaters just as packed as the streaming platforms. Releasing on Nov. 18 is “The Menu,” a darkly comedic horror film starring Anya Taylor-Joy and Ralph Fiennes, and “She Said,” a biographical drama about the New York Times’ breaking of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

Thanksgiving weekend is even heavier. Disney’s latest animated adventure “Strange World” drops on Nov. 22 and the following day will see several more. Director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me by Your Name, Suspiria) returns with “Bones and All,” a horror-romance led by Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet.

Jonathan Majors and Glen Powell star as Navy fighter pilots in biographical war drama “Devotion” and Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans,” a drama loosely based on his own childhood, will also be getting a wide release. Finally, “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” will have a week-long limited theatrical run prior to its December release on Netflix, also on Nov. 23.

November is practically overflowing with content, which means there should be something for everyone. Check back for reviews and enjoy this month’s lineup.
