The Complete Guide to Hollywood Movies Opening in November 2020

Soul (19 Nov) is a Pixar movie which I really hope will be good, and No Time to Die (12 Nov) has more spy intrigue with Daniel Craig in his probably(?) final appearance as James Bond. But who even knows what will open in November? Let’s wait till we’re in the month itself and then see what’s not been moved.*

*Edited on 6 Oct 2020* Yeah, James Bond isn’t opening anymore.
