    Here Are The 4 Movies You Should Watch This November And, Yes, "Eternals" Is One Of Them

    "Paul Rudd is in it and that's the extent of my caring about it — because I love me some Paul Rudd."

    So let's dive right into it! Recently we talked with Buzzfeed's Allie Hayes about which movies you need to check out this November. Here's some of what we learned:

    Buzzfeed Daily: So, let's get the big one out of the way — Marvel's Eternals comes out this weekend. It's directed by Chloé Zhao, who is fresh off an Oscar win for Nomadland. This movie stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, plus many others. How are you feeling about Eternals?

    Marvel

    Allie Hayes: I'm pretty excited about it. I'm a huge Marvel fan, as you both well know. There are lots of hot people in this movie, so I have a difficult time believing it will be bad if you're looking at that many hot people. However, I did just learn this morning that it's actually the lowest-rated Marvel movie of all time on Rotten Tomatoes. One big criticism I've been reading is that it doesn't look or feel like a Marvel movie. So I think that might be isolating some fans who have come to expect a certain look when they go to a Marvel movie. However, that just excites me. If you're going to be making 20+ movies at a certain point you want them to look different. 

    Buzzfeed Daily: Also coming out is the Will Smith movie King Richard, which is the story of Richard Williams, father of tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams. Personally, I love Will Smith in an Oscar vehicle, which is something we haven't seen since 2015's Concussion. What's been the reception to King Richard so far?

    Warner Bros.

    AH: From what I've been seeing online it seems very divided. I was looking at IMDb and it has a 6.3 right now, but then on Rotten Tomatoes it has a 91%, so who knows? But the one constant line in every review that I've seen is that Will Smith's performance is just next level and that if he's going to get nominated and going to win, it might be for this movie.

    Buzzfeed Daily: Probably the movie I am most excited for is House of Gucci, which is based on the true story of the famous Gucci murder. Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Adam Driver, Lady Gaga, Jared Leto, and Al Pacino. I mean, come on — Italian fashion, wealthy socialites, murder — what more could you ask for?

    MGM Studios

    AH: Literally nothing, next question. No, but seriously, I'm beyond excited for this. I was like Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, bad wigs — is someone reading my diary? It's also Ridley Scott's second swing for an Oscar nomination this year because he had The Last Duel, which came out last month, and also had Adam Driver in it. So he and Adam Driver are really having a moment together this year.

    Buzzfeed Daily: So I want to talk about one more movie, and that's Ghostbusters: Afterlife. This movie stars Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, and McKenna Grace. It's directed by Jason Reitman, the son of Ivan Reitman, who directed the original Ghostbusters. So now where are we in the Ghostbusters mythology? Is this a reboot? A sequel? What is happening?

    Sony Pictures

    AH: I don't believe this is a reboot from all of the marketing that I've seen. This seems like a very straightforward sequel. It's like something we would see with Star Wars, where decades after the first movie we're getting this movie. From what I've seen, it seems like it's skipping a generation and is following the grandkids. The Ghostbusters have some kind of connection, but we don't really know. Paul Rudd is in it and that's the extent of my caring about it because I love me some Paul Rudd. 

    We also discussed JoJo Siwa's explanation for why she and her girlfriend broke up.

    JoJo Siwa confirmed that she and Kylie Prew, who she started dating almost a year ago, have broken up.

    During an appearance on Paris Hilton’s podcast This Is Paris, JoJo said the two are still friends and are quote “having the time of [their lives]."

    And "Game Of Thrones" Star Gemma Whelan talked about what it was like filming sex scenes without an intimacy coordinator.

    Gemma told The Guardian: "They used to just say, 'When we shout action, go for it!', and it could be a sort of frenzied mess. But between the actors, there was always an instinct to check in with each other."

    She also added: “There was a scene in a brothel with a woman and she was so exposed that we talked together about where the camera would be and what she was happy with. A director might say, 'Bit of boob biting, then slap her bum and go!', but I’d always talk it through with the other actor."
