The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes is almost here.

If you're wondering what to do this weekend, here's an idea: take your loved ones and friends to the movies. The new premiere season brings some hot new movies to theaters this Friday, November 17.

Whether you enjoy musicals, animation, comedy, horror or dystopian genres, there is something for every moviegoer. Just pick one. Or watch them all. What a day that would make!

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes

The most anticipated premiere of the week, the month, and perhaps the season is, of course, the prequel to 2012's The Hunger Games. The new story, based on Suzanne Collins' novel, will expand the Hunger Games universe and delve into the origins of Panem's tyrannical president, Coryo Snow, as he mentors and falls in love with District 12's tribute for the 10th Hunger Games.

News of the upcoming new installment in the franchise has already reignited public interest in the original film series, so we expect theaters to be flooded with fans old and new. Hurry to get your tickets.

Trolls Band Together

The third installment of the Trolls franchise is set to bring Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel and other big names back to the recording booth and fans of the animated jukebox comedy back to theaters.

The upcoming film picks up after the events of the previous installments and follows the two protagonists, Poppy and Branch, in their relationship and on a mission to rescue one of Branch's brothers.


For those still in the mood for horror and thrillers, Sony Pictures offers Eli Roth's new Thanksgiving-themed slasher about a serial killer who dresses like a Pilgrim, is named John Carver, and kills the residents of Plymouth, Massachusetts, with the intention of creating a holiday carving board out of their bodies.

Next Goal Wins

The names Taika Waititi and Michael Fassbender have been in the public eye a lot this season thanks to their new hit projects.

Now, the two join forces as director and star of the biographical sports dramedy about football coach Thomas Rongen and his thrilling journey to take the American Samoa national team from one of the biggest failures in football history to qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Will you go to the movies this weekend?
