Here are my top 5 picks below!

Marvel’s Doctor Strange:

First up is Marvel’s Doctor Strange. This movie looks so interesting! What do you think? We have enjoyed so many Marvel movies in the past, and I hope this one will be just as enjoyable.

Synopsis from IMDB.com: After his career is destroyed, a brilliant but arrogant and conceited surgeon gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil. This movie will arrive in theaters on Friday, November 4, 2016.

Rachel McAdams
Mads Mikkelsen
Benedict Cumberbatch
Tilda Swinton

Cute, cute, cute…that is what I thought when watching the trailer for Trolls. November 4, 2016, is the date that this animated movie will hit theaters. Yay! 🙂

Synopsis from IMDB.com: This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach. Featuring original music from Justin Timberlake, and soon-to-be classic mash-ups of songs from other popular artists, the film stars the voice talents of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Russell Brand, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Gwen Stefani, and many more. DreamWorks’ TROLLS is a fresh, broad comedy filled with music, heart and hair-raising adventures.
