  • The 5 cinema releases that you need to watch in November

With films eyeing-up the awards season and festive flicks on the horizon, November is a great month for movie releases.

Here are our picks for the films that you mustn't miss in the cinema this month...

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 -  20th November

The final movie from the young adult fiction series, as Katniss launches an all-out revolution in a bid to bring down the all-powerful Capitol.

Jennifer Lawrence picks up her bow and arrows for her last outing as the freedom fighter which will have teenage girls queuing for days to see the climax.

Why should you see it?

Just like the final Harry Potter, this is a moment in YA cinema history - the fourth film, three years after the series debut; expect more action, death and tense stares that ever before.

Black Mass - 27 November

Having spent the past few years flouncing around the screen as Jack Sparrow, Mad Hatter and the ill-fated Mortdecai, Johnny Depp features in a role that will make people say: "Wow, I forgot Johnny Depp could act seriously."

The true-life tale of Whitey Bulger, one of America's most violent 20th century gangsters and him eventually becoming an FBI informant to take down a rival mob family.

Why should you see it?

Depp is set to blow audiences away with his portrayal as the ruthless and infamous gangster, bolstered by a splendid supporting cast, including Benedict Cumberbatch and Sienna Miller.

Kill Your Friends - 6th November

The American Psycho for the millennial era, Nicholas Hoult plays a high-flying A&R man at the height of the '90s Britpop, as he goes to murderous lengths to stay at the top.

Set in the era of 'Cool Britannia,' the dark comedy-thriller is based on the 2008 novel from John Niven, who has turned his book into a script.

Why should you see it?

Nicholas Hoult has proved his leading man potential in recent years with roles in X-Men, Mad Max: Fury Road and Warm Bodies, and this one is set to be one of the most inventive and interesting film ideas since American Psycho.

The Good Dinosaur - 27th November

If the dinosaurs had never been wiped out and are still roaming the Earth, a young Apatosaurus named Arlo falls into a river and is knocked out, finding himself far away from home.

Teaming up with a young caveboy, Arlo has to find a way back to his home on the Clawed-Tooth Mountains.

Why should you see it?

After a few years of merchandise-grabbing sequels and underwhelming efforts, Pixar returned to form this year with Inside Out and is immediately following that up with The Good Dinosaur, so expect big things from Arlo the Apatosaurus.

Steve Jobs - 13th November

Michael Fassbender stars as Apple's legendary CEO, in a portrait of the man behind the digital revolution as the story unfolds at three of Apple's iconic product launches, from the original Apple Macintosh back in 1984, to the release of the iMac in 1998.

With Fassbender as the uncompromising Apple chief, Seth Rogen puts on his dramatic hat for a turn as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Kate Winslet and Jeff Bridges play various members of the Apple bigwigs.

Why should you see it?

With the dream team of Fassbender, Danny Boyle behind the camera and screenplay written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, Moneyball) even if you aren't an Apple fanboy, you know you're in for a wonderfully-told story of Jobs' rise, Apple sacking and subsequent return.
