Here are several movies that would be great to check out if you need a break or happen to have some of that coveted free time on your hands:
Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson star in “About Time.” This movie is an intriguing love story that involves time travel. Gleeson’s character is told by his father (Bill Nighy) that the men in his family can travel in time. Gleeson uses this to his advantage to relive moments that he messes up. He decides to use this power to pursue Mary (Rachel McAdams) and create the perfect scenarios with her. However, he will find that he cannot correct everything, as even time travel comes with consequences, and Mary may no longer remember him. This is a must see rom-com about taking chances and making every moment count (Released Nov. 1).
Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford are among the many famous names that star in “Ender’s Game.” This movie is based on the science fiction book by Orson Scott Card. In this movie, the International Military is looking for a human leader who can save them from an alien attack. A young boy (Butterfield) is selected and trained to destroy the aliens. Also, the future of the Earth rests on his shoulders— no pressure (Released Nov. 1).
Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston star in the much anticipated movie “Thor: The Dark World.” “Thor” is an action, adventure and fantasy movie. Thor must once again save the world from destruction from an evil villain. He must make sacrifices for the good of humanity and even seek allegiance with his brother, who betrayed him in the last movie. This movie is sure to please all audiences as it is another Marvel superhero installment (Released Nov. 8).
Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson star in the highly awaited movie “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” Based off of the beloved novel, Katniss (Lawrence) and Peeta (Hutcherson) find themselves in the midst of a rebellion against the Capitol thanks to the stunt they pulled with the berries in the previous movie. For the 75th year of the Hunger Games, the Quarter Quell insists that the tributes be selected from the pool of victors. That’s right; Peeta and Katniss are headed right back into the games, where they will face deadly opponents and loyal allies. But this is more than just another Games, it is the beginning of a full-scale rebellion (Released Nov. 22).
