Tough thought it might be to believe, November is here and we're just eight-ish weeks away from the end of 2018. Meanwhile, October was certainly a busy and diverse month at the movies, serving up big-budget tentpoles and smaller art-house offerings in almost equal measure.
Netflix had arguably their best month for Originals ever with numerous high-profile, critically-acclaimed releases from auteur filmmakers, while cinemas juggled awards-baiting fare with a deluge of post-summer tentpole films.
Despite a few less-than-stellar offerings, it was a totally rock solid month for the most part. There wasn't a single terrible major movie released in October, and a number of legitimately great ones no less.
So, what does November hold? Steve McQueen's Widows, Nazi-zombie flick Overlord, The Grinch, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Suspiria, Robin Hood, The Girl in the Spider's Web, Creed II and Ralph Breaks the Internet. Busy times ahead, then, but before November kicks off in earnest, this is how October went down...
