New Movies to Watch in Theatres on Thanksgiving 2020

10/26/2020 • 3 min read

(Updated 08/25/2022)

Thanksgiving is always a good time to watch new movies in theatres. Some of the year's biggest films are released when families have time off and plenty of opportunities to go to the movies. The last couple of Thanksgiving holidays were a bit different than most, but we're hoping that in 2022 Thanksgiving will be a lot more, well, normal.

We're looking forward to all the things Thanksgiving represents — being able to be with our families, loved ones, and friends for a good meal and a trip to the movies — more than usual this year, even if we have to achieve all those things in different ways than normal. Movies, however, will be the constant. Here are the new movies to watch in theatres over the long weekend, too!

New Movies In Theatres on Thanksgiving 2022

Strange World

Disney's new original action-adventure animated journey travels deep into an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threaten to topple their latest—and by far— most crucial mission. STRANGE WORLD is a nod to the pulp sci-fi magazines of the '50s and '60s, and the movie is directed by Don Hall (BIG HERO 6) and co-director/writer Qui Nguyen (RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON co-writer).

The Fabelmans

THE FABELMANS is a movie by Steven Spielberg that is loosely based on his own childhood. The movie covers about 10 years of his life, from ages 7 to 18. While we don't know explicitly what the story covers at this point, we'll likely see his family's move to Arizona, where Spielberg became acutely aware of his Jewish background. It also covers the time in which Spielberg made his first home movies, and ultimately made a feature film. Read more about THE FABELMANS here.


Devotion, an aerial war epic based on the bestselling book of the same name, tells the harrowing true story of two elite US Navy fighter pilots (played by Jonathan Majors and Glen Powell) during the Korean War. Their heroic sacrifices would ultimately make them the Navy's most celebrated wingmen. Read more about DEVOTION here.

Movies Still in Theatres on Thanksgiving

In addition to the new Thanksgiving movie releases for 2022, several movies from earlier in November and prior months will still be in theatres. Here are just a few.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. Read more about BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER here.

The Son

Florian Zeller, who last directed the Oscar-winning THE FATHER, reunites with Anthony Hopkis for a potent new generational drama that follows a family as it struggles to reunite after falling apart. Peter (Hugh Jackman) has a new partner and an infant but finds his life upended when his ex-wife Kate (Laura Dern) appears with their son, who is now a teenager. Peter strives to take care of his troubled son as he would have liked his own father to have taken care of him. While juggling work and multiple families, he loses sight of how to hold onto his son Nicholas in the present.

The Menu

A couple (Anya Taylor-Joy and Nicholas Hoult) travels to a coastal island to eat at an exclusive restaurant where the chef (Ralph Fiennes) has prepared a lavish menu, with some shocking surprises.

She Said

Carey Mulligan (PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN) and Zoe Kazan (THE BIG SICK) star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who together broke one of the most important stories in a generation, about abuses perpetrated by Harvey Weinstein. It's a story that helped launch the #Metoo movement, shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood and altered American culture forever.
