Ah, Thanksgiving. A time for turkey (or, perhaps tofurkey), togetherness and hardcore family time. Sitting around the dinner table with your loved ones is one way to connect, but there is nothing like a good movie to bring people together. Here are some upcoming movies to see on the big screen at AMC Theatres this holiday season.
In 2019, Carol Danvers (Academy Award® winner Brie Larson) became one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of her first solo film, CAPTAIN MARVEL. A key aspect of her appeal, in addition to her no-nonsense attitude and commitment to justice, is her immense, nearly incomparable power, but even the unbeatable need some help every once in a while.
Help is what the Kree warrior shall receive in THE MARVELS, in the form of Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), also known as Spectrum, and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), who likes to call herself Ms. Marvel after the trio find themselves mysteriously swapping places with each other whenever they use their powers. CANDYMAN director Nia DaCosta is helming the sequel – and 33rd MCU movie – which is poised to be a fun time for the whole family.

Journey To Bethlehem
A young man named Joseph (Milo Manheim) must journey to take his pregnant wife, Mary (Fiona Palomo), to a safe place for her to give birth to the son of God, Jesus. It is a story you have likely heard many times before, but have never seen told quite like this.
Adam Anders – producer of recent movie musicals like Netflix’s THE PROM and composer for 2012’s ROCK OF AGES – makes his directorial debut with this musical retelling of the Biblical story of the Nativity that he also co-wrote with HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL writer, Peter Barsocchini. Also starring Antonio Banderas, JOURNEY TO BETHLEHEM is a perfect choice for families seeking a holiday treat that explores the roots of the season.

The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes
Decades before Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteered for the 74th annual Hunger Games, changing the course of her people’s history, Coriolanus Snow – the future president of Panem – made an impression on the dystopian nation as the Capitol tribute for the event’s 10th anniversary. His story will be told in THE HUNGER GAMES: THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS AND SNAKES.
Up-and-coming English actor Tom Blyth stars as young Snow, leading an all-star cast that also includes Rachel Zegler, Hunter Schafer, Jason Schwartzman, and Viola Davis. The prequel, based on the YA fantasy novel by series creator Suzanne Collins, also marks the return of director Francis Lawrence to the franchise which, despite its dark subject matter, is sure to have something for everyone to enjoy.
