Autumn is now in full swing with the weather growing colder and the leaves changing to beautiful bright colors. If you need some entertainment this autumn, then there are some new movies being released on the big screen to interest people of all tastes. Here’s your guide to new movies being released in November 2010.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” is undeniably the biggest movie opening in November 2010. This is the newest instalment of the Harry Potter series. Due to the length of this book, it has been split into two parts (this is part one, covering roughly the first half of the book; part two should be released in 2011). Harry Potter fans around the world are counting down to go see Harry, Ron and Hermione as they look for the Horcruxes that will help them to defeat the evil Voldemort. I have to admit that if I only see one movie in the theater this month, it will be this one.

Robert Downey Jr. stars in the new comedy “Due Date”. His character, Peter, plays a man who is desperate to get home before his wife gives birth to their baby (she’s due in just five days). However, nothing goes according to plan and he becomes part of a cross-country adventure. Will he survive the trip? Will he make it in time for his baby’s birth?
I generally like Robert Downey Jr., so I want to be excited about this film. Honestly, though, it looks mostly obnoxious with just a few cheap laughs thrown in. Hopefully it will be better than I’m expecting. Click here to find out more about “Due Date” and decide for yourself.
“The King’s Speech”
Although “The King’s Speech” is only going to have a limited release, I’m so excited about this film that I have to include it. Based on the true story of George VI, “The King’s Speech” tells the story of how this younger brother must conquer his speech difficulties in order to unexpectedly become king (his older brother famously abdicated). The incredible Colin Firth stars as King George VI, with a supporting cast including Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, and Guy Pearce. This film has been hugely praised at film festivals. It looks beautifully made, and I for one can’t wait to see it.
