There’s no shortage of new shows and films to watch and enjoy this November, from Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla and a new Meg Ryan-directed romcom, to the long-anticipated A Murder at the End of the World.

This month’s TV slate also sees familiar favorites making their return, including For All Mankind, The Crown (beginning its final season), and even Fargo (whose cast this season includes Juno Temple and Jon Hamm).

Similarly, you could have a pretty good November at the movies simply by catching up with some titles that made their debut at the end of October. Nyad, The Killer, and The Holdovers all crept into the end of the month in limited release but will soon be more widely available. That’s also true of the first film on our list, which played a few theaters at the end of the month. Beyond that, it’s a November filled with new and exciting shows and movies.

Here’s your guide to what’s heading to theaters and streaming this month, from Priscilla to Fingernails.

Best Movies and Shows to Watch: November 2023

Priscilla (Theaters, 11/3)

Working from Priscilla Presley’s 1985 memoir Elvis and Me, Sofia Coppola’s latest keeps the focus squarely on Elvis Presley’s wife, from the moment she met the King of Rock & Roll as a 14-year-old in Germany through the end of the marriage. It’s a showcase for Cailee Spaeny (Mare of Easttown), who depicts Priscilla’s transformation. It’s what Rolling Stone calls “Sofia Coppola at her best.” Get Tickets on Fandango

What Happens Later (Theaters, 11/3)

For her second film as a director, Meg Ryan returns to the genre that made her a star via a rom-com about aging and second chances. Ryan stars Willa, who finds herself forced to reexamine her past after bumping into an ex named Bill (David Duchovny), then spending the night reminiscing with him when they found themselves snowbound at an airport. Get Tickets on Fandango

All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt (Theaters, 11/3)

A Sundance hit, Raven Jackson’s debut film earned widespread acclaim for its lyricism and confidence. Set in Mississippi, the film follows Mack (played as an adult by Charleen McClure and at various ages by Kaylee Nicole Johnson and Zainab Jay) from childhood to adulthood. Get Tickets on Fandango

Fingernails (Theaters / Apple TV+, 11/3)

In the near future, love can be verified scientifically. Or can it? Jessie Buckley stars as Anna, a woman who takes a job at a love-testing institute alongside Amir (Riz Ahmed). Christos Nikous directs. Stream it on Apple TV+

Rustin (Theaters, 11/3, Netflix 11/17)

Colman Domingo leads a star-packed cast in this biopic of civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, the 1963 March on Washington architect. Those joining Domingo in this George C. Wolfe-directed film include Chris Rock, Audra McDonald, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and Jeffrey Wright. Get Tickets on Fandango

Lawmen: Bass Reeves (Paramount+, 11/5)

The Taylor Sheridan TV empire expands with this series based around the life of Bass Reeves (David Oyelowo), whose life took him from slavery to service as a lawman. Dennis Quaid co-stars. Stream it on Paramount+

The Buccaneers (Apple TV+, 11/8)

Edith Wharton never finished her final novel but that doesn’t mean it can’t be adapted. In fact, maybe it opens up more possibilities, giving British comic Katherine Jakeways, who serves as the series’ showrunner, leeway in reworking Wharton’s story about four American women’s misadventures in 1870s London. Stream it on Apple TV+

The Marvels (Theaters, 11/10)

The latest entry in the MCU is sort of a sequel to Captain Marvel but also sort of a continuation of two MCU TV series, Ms. Marvel and WandaVision. Confused? So are the characters in a plot that has Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) unexpectedly trading places and powers. Get Tickets on Fandango

Albert Brooks: Defending My Life (Max, 11/10)

The great comic and filmmaker behind Lost in America and other classics talks to old friend Rob Reiner about his life and career. That’s a pretty simple set-up for a special, but with Brooks it will undoubtedly be enough. Stream it on Max

Dream Scenario (Theaters, 11/10)

Norwegian director Kristoffer Borgli drew the attention of those who appreciate the weird with last year’s Sick of Myself and hasn’t wasted any time in making his next film. Borgli’s English-language debut stars Nicolas Cage as a college professor who inexplicably begins turning up in the dreams of others. Get Tickets on Fandango

The Curse (Showtime, 11/12)

Nathan Fielder’s follow-up to The Rehearsal finds him partnering with Benny Safdie (who co-created the show and serves as a co-star) for another genre-bending series. In The Curse, Fielder and Emma Stone play married hosts of a home improvement show whose latest venture may be, well, cursed. Stream it on Showtime

A Murder at the End of the World (Hulu, 11/14)

Fielder’s not the only cult favorite resurfacing this November. Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, creators of The OA, return with a series starring Emma Corrin as Darby Hart, one of a handful of guests at the home of billionaire Andy Robson (Clive Owen) when a murder occurs. Can she solve it? Chances are it won’t be simple. Stream it on Hulu

Saltburn (Theaters, 11/17)

Writer/director Emerald Fennell’s follow-up to Promising Young Woman, Saltburn offers a dark riff on Brideshead Revisited via the story of Oliver Quick (Barry Keoghan), an outsider at Oxford who joins his friend Felix (Jacob Elordi) for a summer at Felix’s stately family home. Rosamund Pike, Richard E. Grant, and Carey Mulligan round out the cast. Get Tickets on Fandango

Please Don’t Destroy: The Treasure of Foggy Mountain (Peacock, 11/17)

The SNL comedy trio of Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy make a venture into feature films with this story of three sporting goods store employees in search of a precious artifact. Conan O’Brien and Bowen Yang co-star. Stream it on Peacock

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (Apple TV+, 11/17)

An extension of the MonsterVerse — the movie franchise featuring Godzilla, King Kong, and occasionally both — this new series explores the history of Monarch, the mysterious organization that keeps track of the giant monsters threatening the Earth. Jumping between several decades, its stars include both Wyatt Russell and dad Kurt Russell, who play the same character at different ages. Stream it on Apple TV+

Scott Pilgrim Takes Off (Netflix, 11/17)

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Edgar Wright’s adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series, underperformed at the box office in 2010 but picked up a fervent cult following. That undoubtedly helped lead to this sequel / reworking, which reunites the original cast of Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin and others (or their voices, anyway) for an animated series. Stream it on Netflix

Napoleon (Theaters, 11/22)

Ridley Scott loves sweeping stories set in the past and his latest is no exception. Reuniting with his Gladiator director, Joaquin Phoenix stars as French emperor with Vanessa Kirby by his side as Josephine. Get Tickets on Fandango

Wish (Theaters, 11/22)

Disney’s latest animated feature is set in the Kingdom of Rosas where Asha (Ariana DeBose) senses there’s something terribly suspicious about the land’s king (Chris Pine). To save Rosas, she must pair with an anthropomorphic star (and, presumably, sing a song or two). Expect some echoes of Frozen in the film, which was co-written by Jennifer Lee (working with Allison Moore) and co-directed by Chris Buck and Fawn Veerasunthorn. Get Tickets on Fandango

Maestro (Theaters, 11/22)

Returning again to the world of music (if a different branch than the one found in A Star is Born), Bradley Cooper directs, co-writes (with Josh Singer), and stars in Maestro. It’s a dramatization of the life of Leonard Bernstein and his complex marriage with actress and activist Felicia Montealegre. The supporting cast includes Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, and Sarah Silverman. Get Tickets on Fandango

Leave the World Behind (Theaters, 11/22)

A married couple’s (Julia Roberts and Ethan Hawke) vacation takes an unexpected turn when the owners (Mahershala Ali and Myha’la) of the Airbnb in which they’re staying show up unexpectedly. What’s more, they bring news of a blackout that may signal a more extensive cataclysm. Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot) directs Leave the World Behind, adapting the novel by Rumaan Alam.
