As we’ve seen in the past month or two, the return to theaters has been a long time coming. October showed out with some seriously heavy hitting releases such as Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Halloween Kills, Dune, The French Dispatch, and Last Night in Soho. Despite the momentum of October movie releases slowing down a bit, we’ll still be getting a handful of highly-anticipated movies going into the holiday season.
Release date: November 5, 2021
Marvel’s The Eternals, directed by Academy Award-winning director, Chloe Zhao, follows an immortal alien race created by the Celestials (basically gods) who have dwelled anonymously on Earth for the past 7,000 years. They were instructed and all told to explicitly promise to refrain from interfering in any conflicts — which included The Blip that Thanos and the Infinity Stones caused. But now, in the present-day, they resurface and reunite to protect the world from an impending threat posed by their evil counterparts — the Deviants. Fingers crossed that they will mention the X-Men.
