Happy Tuesday (at least for me, since holiday vacation starts at 5:01pm) and thanks for joining me for this week's YA Onscreen! Are my fellow US citizens preparing their Thanksgiving pants for Thursday? Here are some links to peruse while you begin your cooking marathon:
Justice League is out and no one seems to care as the first week numbers are in at a mere $94 million domestically, falling short of all other benchmarks from movies like Wonder Woman and even Suicide Squad. What's next for the struggling DC Universe?
Everything leaving and joining Netflix in December, so you can plan out your Christmas break viewing ahead of time.
As we pointed out in Pro-Tips last Friday, we're less than thrilled with the fact that Johnny Depp is being featured prominently in the Fantastic Beasts sequel and this article perfectly sums up why.
Has everyone been watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend lately? These last few episodes have been a real rollercoaster of emotion (I dare you to watch Rachel Bloom's acting in November 10's episode and not tear up). Exec producer Aline Brosh McKenna discusses Rachel's diagnosis, Nathaniel, and what's next for Josh.
For some behind the scene bits on Ex-Girlfriend, read up on the creation stories of 5 songs from the show and find out which songs the cast used during their auditions. (Let's Generalize About Men is such a hilarious bop.)
Check out the teaser trailer for Incredibles 2:
21 movies to watch with your friends during Friendsgiving, or with your family, or just while you're chilling out alone during the holiday because your family drives you crazy.
New trailer for the giant CW superhero Crisis on Earth-X crossover:
Two Time Lords in a Tardis: The Doctor Who Christmas special first look.

How To Train Your Dragon 3 has found their villian with F. Murray Abraham.
Kat Dennings is heading to Hulu to star in a new show called Dollface about a young woman coming off a breakup trying to rekindle her female friendships.
Wonder is doing well in the box office. Have you seen it?
New Regency has acquired the movie rights to an April 2018 YA book by debut author Emma Berquist, called Devils Unto Dust. The synopsis says it's a cross between True Grit and 28 Days Later (side note: Westerns in YA sort of snuck up on me, but I'm realizing--is this now the new trend after werewolves, vampires, mermaids, and kidnapping books? Discuss.) and is set in 1870's West Texas where a virus is turning people into "Shakes". *slinks off to Goodreads to add to never-ending TBR list*
