Watch Out For These Thanksgiving Movie Releases

It's the best time of the year - turkey and movies.

Although most of us won't be headed to the movie theatres this Thanksgiving, that won't stop new movies from coming to your TV screen next Thursday.

Embattled Trailer

MMA fighters don't play around, but how would you feel if you had to go up against your 18-year-old son? That's what actor Stephen Dorff's character undergoes in Embattled. Dorff told Advocate Channel what the movie is all about:

"It's a tense movie, it gives a real true look at what the inside of a mind of a cage fighter champion is, what a family's reaction around it, a young fighter coming up."

We all know MMA fighters have to be in tip top shape for the sport, and Dorff told us his fitness journey for the role:

"Once the training kicked in and the endorphins and then I started in the mirror and I got gold teeth and a shaved head and I looked nothing like my last guy or myself, I thought 'Jesus, okay, I guess this is who this guy is. Let's get it on'."

Embattled is available now on VOD.

Hillbilly Elegy

Oscar nominees Glenn Close and Amy Adams star in this movie revolving around a family's struggle with addiction. Director Ron Howard said:

"I love family stories, but I've never had one that was a true story that dealt with characters from rural America and that's my family's background."

Look for the highly anticipated film starting November 24th on Netflix.


Sara Paulson plays a deranged mother in Hulu's upcoming thriller Run. The film is available on the platform for streaming now.

The Christmas Chronicles 2

Kurt Russell is back for the second edition of The Christmas Chronicles coming to Netflix on November 25th. Goldie Hawn makes an appearance as Mrs. Clause for the popular movie series.

Happy movie-watching!
