With LITTLE WOMEN, LADY BIRD writer-director Greta Gerwig returns with a new and vital take on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott. Emma Watson, Meryl Streep, Saoirse Ronan, and Timothée Chalamet, and Laura Dern star in the story of four sisters struggling to come of age and define their places in American society following the Civil War. Gerwig's signature wit and tender approach to character make her a perfect fit to adapt Louisa May Alcott's timeless story.

Acclaimed filmmaker Sam Mendes (SKYFALL, SPECTRE) takes us back to World War I for the story of two young British soldiers who are given a mission that may well be impossible. They have to take a message deep into enemy territory, to save a squad of fellow soldiers from falling into a trap. Mendes and acclaimed cinematographer Roger Deakins created 1917 to look like the entire film is one single continuous shot, which adds a unique layer of technical spectacle to what already looks like an intense war movie.

UNCUT GEMS comes from GOOD TIME directors Josh and Benny Safdie, and marks one of the rare occasions when Adam Sandler takes on a dramatic role. It's no exaggeration to say that Sandler absolutely crushes the role of Howard Ratner, a jewelry store owner and compulsive gambler who’s up to his neck in debt to some very dangerous people. Howard has to find a way to pay them off before all his bad decisions tighten like a noose around his neck. UNCUT GEMS also stars Idina Menzel, NBA star Kevin Garnett (as himself), Lakeith Stanfield (“Atlanta”), and Judd Hirsch.
Donnie Yen returns to play the title role in this long-running martial arts series. IP MAN 4: THE FINALE sees the master's relationship with his son dissolving in the wake of his wife's death. To ensure a future for the young man, Ip Man journeys to the United States, where he ultimately faces problems that he never expected, and which force him to revaluate his relationship to martial arts as he meets a new student (Danny Chan Kwok Kwan) who will redefine how the world sees martial arts: Bruce Lee.

Lance Sterling, voiced by Will Smith, is a super-famous and super-capable super-spy. But even a great espionage agent like Sterling can't do everything alone. Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) is the young man who works behind the scenes to design gadgets and weapons Sterling. One of his new gadgets works a little too well, leaving the spy trapped in a tiny, feathered disguise. Can this spy still save the world while transformed into a pigeon, or will Beckett have to step up to active duty in order to save the far more experienced agent?
Andrew Lloyd Webber's smash hit stage musical comes to the big screen at long last! The CATS movie features Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba, Judi Dench, Ian McKellan, Rebel Wilson, James Corden, and Taylor Swift — in addition to a whole host of dancers — as singing, dancing cats whose community rallies together for one very special night. You haven't seen a movie like this in 2019 — possibly ever!

Mark Ruffalo stars in this film inspired by a shocking true story, as a tenacious attorney who uncovers a dark secret that connects a growing number of unexplained deaths due to one of the world's largest corporations. He risks everything – his future, his family, and his own life - to expose the truth. DARK WATERS co-stars Anne Hathaway, William Jackson Harper, Bill Pullman, and Tim Robbins, and comes from Todd Haynes, the acclaimed filmmaker behind CAROL.
The cult classic 1970s horror film is updated by filmmakers Sophia Takal and April Wolfe to create a new vision of chilling horror that draws on their deep love of the genre. In BLACK CHRISTMAS, as a college campus empties for the holidays, the women living in one sorority house are targeted by a violent stalker — or perhaps more than one. But these supposed victims, played by Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon and Brittany O'Grady, aren't going to passively accept their fate, and they come up with a plan to fight back.

Director Clint Eastwood and screenwriter Billy Ray adapt Marie Brenner's article "American Nightmare: The Ballad of Richard Jewell," which tells the story of a man whose good deed turned his life into a nightmare. RICHARD JEWELL, chronicles the title character, a security guard who discovered pipe bombs hidden on the grounds at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta during the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. Despite the fact that Jewell reported the bombs and helped evacuate people from the site before they went off — saving dozens of lives — inaccurate reporting labeled him a suspect in the bombing. “I was interested in Richard Jewell’s story," Clint Eastwood says, "because he was the common man, the average person. He was never prosecuted, but he was in every way persecuted. There was this rush to judgement to accuse him, and he didn’t have any power to escape it and was, for a long time, too naively idealistic to see he needed to save himself. That’s why I wanted to make this picture - to restore Richard’s honor."
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black return to play the characters inside the video game Jumanji, but there's a new twist in this sequel. Danny DeVito and Danny Glover play the two old men who are sucked into the game — much to their confusion — alongside Martha Kaply (Morgan Turner) and "Fridge" Johnson (Ser'Darius Blain) — as they search for the missing Spencer (Alex Wolff). That means that JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL is a chance to see The Rock act as if he is possessed by Danny DeVito (and Kevin Hart playing as Danny Glover), which is a pretty amazing holiday gift.

BOMBSHELL looks at the inner workings of Fox News, as several women inside the organization stand up to CEO Roger Ailes (John Lithgow). Charlize Theron stars as Megyn Kelly, who, along with Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) accuses Ailes of sexual harassment. Margot Robbie plays Kayla Pospisil, a composite character based on several other women who worked for Fox News at the time, and the film, directed by Jay Roach, turns their efforts to rebuff Ailes into a satire on modern corporate culture.

Terrence Malick, whose films (THE TREE OF LIFE, DAYS OF HEAVEN) tend to be gorgeously dreamy explorations of the intersection between morality, family, and ambition, returns with A HIDDEN LIFE. August Diehl stars as Franz Jägerstätter, a conscientious objector who refused to fight for the Nazis during World War II. Because he spurns the war machine, the Austrian farmer faces execution for treason. Family and faith initially sustain Jägerstätter as he stares down oppression, but can those pillars support him as his trials draw on?
A family coping with a horrible loss struggles to navigate life and letting go under the guidance of a controlling patriarch. This indie is the latest movie from Trey Edward Shults, and it explores ideas similar to those in his last film (IT COMES AT NIGHT), but this time through the lens of a powerful drama, rather than horror. The cast includes Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”), Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Alexa Demie (“Euphoria”). [In Select Theatres]

In HONEY BOY, Noah Jupe (A QUIET PLACE) and Lucas Hedges (BOY ERASED) star as Otis Lort, who we see at two different ages, as a child actor and young man whose ascent to stardom has not prepared for life. Shia LaBeouf wrote HONEY BOY based on his own life and career, and in fact the actor plays a fictionalized version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and felon. Cutting-edge documentary filmmaker Alma Har'el (BOMBAY BEACH) directs a cast that also includes singer Natasha Lyonne, Martin Starr, and FKA twigs, in her feature film debut which is also one of the best independent films of the year.

PLAYMOBIL is an animated action adventure in which a top-secret organization has caused citizens from different lands to vanish from thin air. But there's a top-notch team on the case! Or… at least a very enthusiastic one. Charismatic secret agent Rex Dasher (Daniel Radcliffe) partners with smooth-talking food truck driver Del (Jim Gaffigan) and the smart and savvy Marla (Anya Taylor-Joy) to rescue the missing people. Their quest takes the trio on a fantastic journey across stunning new worlds to gather clues for their rescue mission.
