5 must-watch November movies: 'Twilight' 'Argo', 'The Master', more

By
Ben Affleck in Argo (2012)
Strolling into the multiplexes in November, movie fans will find Oscar hopefuls - helmed by Paul Thomas Anderson and Ben Affleck, no less - sitting alongside the closing entry in Stephenie Meyer's multi-million dollar grossing Twilight Saga. In a bumper month, there's also a new film for Jennifer Lawrence and a clever new take on the well-worn cop genre to look forward to.

Digital Spy previews five must-see movies for November below:

The Master
Release Date: November 2
Why you should see it: Paul Thomas Anderson brings together the tantalising duo of Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman for this drama inspired by the formation of controversial religion Scientology. It makes for a brilliant head-to-head between a loose cannon and a charismatic cult leader - expect Oscar nominations to head in this direction come January.


Argo
Release Date: November 7
Why you should see it: Ben Affleck's third film behind the camera is an absolute corker. Part thriller, part Hollywood satire, it focuses on the remarkable true story of a CIA exfiltration expert who poses as a film producer to free hostages from a Canadian embassy in Iran. There's stellar support from the likes of John Goodman, Alan Arkin and Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, too.


The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2
Release Date: November 16
Why you should see it: In the year's second big franchise finale (The Dark Knight Rises beat Twilight to the punch), Bella is a vampire and her daughter with Edward Cullen has become a target for sinister vampire clans. All is well in the world of K-Stew and R-Patz, but how will Twihards cope once it all comes to an end?


Silver Linings Playbook
Release Date: November 21
Why you should see it: The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence teams up with The Hangover's Bradley Cooper for David O Russell's comedy-drama about a teacher who moves back in with his parents after a stint in an institution. There's already strong Oscar buzz surrounding this one - for the film and its leads Cooper and Lawrence.


End of Watch
Release Date: November 23
Why you should see it: The cop movie gets an adrenaline shot to the arm as David 'Training Day' Ayer pairs up a shaven-headed Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena as LA police for a found footage thriller. The duo find themselves in over their heads after crossing a cartel, and Ayer's handheld technique makes for a fresh and bracing genre piece.
