Britt-Marie Was Here

Based on the novel by Fredrik Backman (A Man Called Ove), this heartwarming comedy-drama finds 63-year-old Britt-Marie (Pernilla August from Fanny and Alexander) suddenly reconsidering her purpose in life. After discovering her husband of 40 years has been cheating on her, she accepts the unusual (and seemingly impossible task) of coaching a children's soccer team at a ramshackle youth center in the backwater town of Borg. Invigorated by the team's youthful energy, Britt-Marie steps out of her bubble to find meaning (and possibly romance) in life. In Swedish with English subtitles. 94 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 11/15)

Charlie's Angels

The world really didn't need the 2000 reboot of Charlie's Angels. And it probably doesn't need this one either. But here we are. Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska are our three new international superspy detectives (or whatever Charlie's Angels are supposed to be). Elizabeth Banks (who also wrote and directed this one!) is our new Bosley. Seems that a young computer technician has blown the whistle on a dangerous new technology and is marked for assassination. It's up to the Angels to protect her. 118 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 11/14)

Gift

Inspired by Lewis Hyde's beloved classic The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World, Robin McKenna's documentary looks in on "gift-based cultures" around the world and how they are challenging the logic of global capitalism and pushing the boundaries of art. In the Pacific Northwest, an indigenous carver prepares for a potlatch. In Rome a factory occupied by migrant families is transformed into a living museum. And in the weird wasteland of the Burning Man Festival, a mutant bumblebee art car distributes honey in a post-apocalyptic landscape. 90 minutes Unrated. (Opens Tuesday 11/19)

The Good Liar

Sir Ian McKellen stars as a heartless elderly con artist who can hardly believe his luck when he meets a wealthy widower (Helen Mirren) online. But our protagonist's dastardly plan starts to fall apart when he finds himself caring about his mark—who may be significantly less helpless than she appears. There's a comfortable pleasure in seeing McKellen and Mirren's first onscreen team-up. But the film's countless twists and turns are too tame and tidy to elicit many thrills. 109 minutes R.

No Safe Spaces

No Safe Spaces

Comedian Adam Corolla and author Dennis Preger turn their comedy/political lecture tour into a "documentary" with the help of the guy who co-wrote, co-produced and co-directed Dinesh D'Souza's batcrap-crazy conspiracy theory rants 2016: Obama's America and America: Imagine the World Without Her. The boys are deeply concerned about the state of the First Amendment, particularly on America's college campuses—but mostly because rich white comedians can't tell jokes about gays and blacks anymore, and our good friends the "alt-right" neo-Nazis aren't being given a big enough platform. Despite all the talk about a calm and reasoned debate between political opposites, the film ignores liberals, showcasing them only in snarky cartoon segments that mock "safe spaces," "racial politics" and "social justice warriors." FULL REVIEW: Conservatives cry over “cancel culture” by Devin D. O’Leary (11/14/2019). 95 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 11/15)

The Warrior Queen of Jhansi

Lakshmibai—the historic queen of Jhansi, who fiercely led her army against the British East India Company in the infamous mutiny of 1857—is the subject of this 1857-set action drama. (Indians in the movies really do not like the British East India Company.) Among the international cast are Jodhi May as Queen Victoria, Rupert Everett as Sir Hugh Rose, Derek Jacobi as Lord Palmerston and Devika Bhise as Rani Lakshmibai. 104 minutes R. (Opens Friday 11/15)

An American Werewolf in London (1981)

John Landis' humorous horror classic is back, courtesy of the folks at Dark Room Horror. American tourists David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) get caught out on the Yorkshire moors while hiking across England. Jack is killed by a mysterious monster and David wakes up in the hospital with a nasty bite. It's not long, of course, before he's undergoing a full-moon transformation, turning into a bloodthirsty werewolf (courtesy of special effects genius Rick Baker). 97 minutes R.

The Polar Express (2004)

Chris Van Allsburg's gorgeous, award-winning children's book comes to life in a computer-animated fantasy directed by Robert Zemeckis (Cast Away, Forrest Gump, Back to the Future). The simple story has a skeptical kid boarding a magical train to the North Pole and meeting Santa Claus. The "photo-realistic" CGI was faintly impressive from a technical perspective back in 2004, but is still flat-out creepy to watch. 100 minutes G.

Princess Mononoke (1997)

This grandly mythical tale comes from Japanese master animator Hayao Miyazaki and is considered one of the finest pieces of modern animation. It relates the tale of a cursed warrior prince who gets caught in a war between the industrial owners of Iron Town and the title character, a feral female guardian of the forest. Screened in English dubbed and English subtitled versions. 134 minutes PG-13.

The Addams Family

Charles Addams' enduringly ghoulish cartoon characters return (appropriately enough) in computer-animated form. The all-star voice cast includes Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Charlize Theron (Morticia), Chloë Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Finn Wolfhard (Pugsley), Nick Kroll (Uncle Fester), Bette Midler (Grandma) and Snoop Dogg (Cousin Itt)—all of whom do right by their characters. If only the dull story weren't so bogged down in kiddy film moralizing. 87 minutes PG.

Arctic Dogs

Renner plays "Swifty," an Arctic fox who works for a wintery package delivery service. While on the job, he stumbles across the lair of an evil walrus who wants to melt the Arctic and become the world's supreme ruler. Naturally, Swifty recruits his animal friends to stop him. 93 minutes PG.

Black and Blue

Cop drama doesn't come much more pulpy and undercooked. Naomie Harris (Moonlight, Skyfall) stars as a rookie cop who witnesses a some New Orleans police officers murder a suspect. She's got to get back to the police station with her police-cam footage before the crooked cops (and, seemingly, every criminal in the Crescent City) finds her and kills her. There's plenty of propulsive action here, but you've seen this urban chase scene countless times before. 108 minutes R.

Countdown

What if, like, there was this phone app that could predict—down to the second—when you would die. And then, I don't know, some scary monster popped out and killed you or something. That's pretty much the pitch for this bargain bin variation on Final Destination/One Missed Call/The Ring. Elizabeth Lail ("Once Upon a Time"), Jordan Calloway ("Unfabulous") and Talitha Bateman ("Hart of Dixie") are among the TV-friendly young cast. 90 minutes PG-13.

He meets a young girl with powers similar to his own and tries to protect her from an evil cult that preys on children with powers in order to remain immortal.

Jojo Rabbit

Taiki Waititi (What We Do In the Shadows, Thor: Ragnarok) writes, directs and stars (as Adolf Hitler) in this irreverent, occasionally surreal and surprisingly big-hearted dramedy. Our titular Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) is an undersized German kid who wants desperately to be a good Nazi. Unfortunately, he's way too sensitive and kindhearted. But that doesn't stop him from having conversations with his imaginary childhood friend Hitler (Waititi). But when Jojo finds a young Jewish girl hidden in the attic by his concerned mother (Scarlett Johansson), he experiences a crisis of dogma (and grows up just a little). This is a tough tonal balancing act, and Waititi nails both the silly satire and the painful drama—even if the story is ultimately a slight one. 108 minutes PG-13.

Joker

Joker

After Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill, Heath Ledger and Jared Leto put their stamp on the character, moody method actor Joaquin Phoenix tries DC's iconic villain on for size. This one swings pretty far afield of the traditional comic book origin stories, but writer-director Todd Phillips (Old School, The Hangover) offers a distinctive, Martin Scorsese-esque vision of a failed comic being disenfranchised from society and reinventing himself as an outsized supervillain for the ages.

Last Christmas

Pretty people fall in love in this tale of a young Yugoslavian emigrant to England (Emelia Clarke, "Game of Thrones"), prone to making terrible life decisions, who finds herself working as a department store elf while dreaming of becoming a singer. One day she meets a handsome, charming and rather mysterious man (Henry Golding, Crazy Rich Asians). Don't worry, romance fans: There are plenty of weepy complications and George Michael tunes to get all sappy over—if you can weather the film's one ridiculous twist (involving the very literal interpretation of a George Michael lyric). 102 minutes PG-13.

The Lighthouse

From filmmaker Robert Eggers (The VVitch) comes another moody tale of isolation and (possible) supernatural disorder. In the late 1800s, a retired timberman (Robert Pattinson) is sent to serve as an apprentice lighthouse keeper on a storm-lashed New England island. There, he meets a superstitious old sea dog (Willem Dafoe). Over the coming weeks, the two descend into a hallucinatory fog of booze, isolation, madness and some very ominous storm clouds. Shot in a boxy black-and-white frame, the film looks like some long-buried, Poe-inspired film from a particularly demented filmmaker in the silent era. What exactly happens in this eerie, old-tyme sea shanty is kind of up for debate. But Eggers' stylized ode to cabin fever is a hypnotizing, haunting (and occasionally hilarious) two-hander nonetheless. 109 minutes R.

Pain & Glory

Pain & Glory

Director Pedro Almodóvar and actor Antonio Banderas get together for the seventh time. A bit more serious and a lot more mature than some of their previous outings (Labyrinth of Passions, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!), this self-reflexive rumination of the filmmaking business feels loosely inspired by Federico Fellini's confessional semi-autobiography 8 1/2. Plagued by illness both physical and mental, an aging filmmaker (Banderas) reflects back on his childhood. At the same time, he struggles to determine his legacy in the artistic community. The result is a deeply humanistic portrait of life lived (regretfully or otherwise). FULL REVIEW: Celebrated Spanish filmmaker offers “autofictional” story of celebrated Spanish filmmaker by Devin D. O’Leary (11/7/2019). 113 minutes R.

Parasite

The latest film from brilliant South Korean director Bong Joon-Ho (The Host, Mother, Snowpiercer) is a pitch-black, tragicomic thriller about a poor but loving family scraping by in a crowded "semi-basement" apartment on a grubby side street in Seoul. By chance, the family's intelligent son lands a job tutoring an upper-class teenage girl who lives in a massive modernist mansion. This sudden and vivid contrast in fortunes sets up the film's nasty, near-Gothic twists and turns (none of which should be spoiled). 131 minutes R.

Seems that the apocalyptic Judgment Day was merely postponed, forcing waitress-turned-asskicker Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) to come out of hiding to protect some new target from execution at the hands of killer robots from the future. This time around she's got help in the form of the latest human/Terminator hybid (Mackenzie Davis from "Halt and Catch Fire") and an old frenemy (Arnold Schwarzenegger). 128 minutes R.

Wrinkles the Clown

In 2014 a low-res video of a person dressed as a clown and emerging from underneath a sleeping child's bed appeared on YouTube. The creepy fellow was described as "Wrinkles," a clown-for-hire in southwest Florida who specialized in "behavioral services." Soon, the internet was flooded with tales of Wrinkles' shenanigans. Over a million messages ended up on his answering service, catapulting him to the status of urban legend. Who is this scary clown and what the hell is his deal? Filmmaker Michael Beach Nichols tracks down the cryptic man behind the mask, exposing our country's collective coulrophobia in the process. Local author Benjamin Radford (who wrote the nonfiction book Bad Clowns and appears in the film) will be on hand to introduce the documentary! 78 minutes Unrated.

Hollywood, evidently, can't make Fast & Furious movies at a fast and furious enough pace.

The squabbling duo are reluctantly paired up to fight a "cyber-genetically enhanced" villain (Idris Elba) with super powers.

Jacob Tremblay (Room), Keith L. Williams ("The Last Man on Earth") and Brady Noon ("Boardwalk Empire") are the three little scamps getting into some seriously R-rated trouble. 89 minutes R.

The cast—now consisting of Donald Glover, Beyoncé, Chiwitel Ejiofor, James Earl Jones, Alfre Woodard, Keegan-Michael Key, Seth Rogen and John Oliver—is mighty impressive.

The Peanut Butter Falcon

A young man with Down syndrome (Zack Gottsagen) escapes from the Deep South retirement home he's been stuck in by clueless officials in hopes of joining a pro wresting school run by his idol, the Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). He soon befriends an angry jerk of a fisherman (he's got a backstory, so it's OK) played by Shia LaBeouf. Naturally, the two travel downriver on a raft, Huck and Finn style. Later on, improbably, they're joined by a pretty attendant (Dakota Johnson) from the nursing home and chased by a couple of evil crab fisherman (played by Yelawolf and John Hawkes). Gottsagen's earnest performance is the heart and soul of the film, and his disarming presence breaks LaBeouf of his worst method acting habits. But viewing this well-intentioned road movie as anything other than a feel-good fairy tale exposes an awful lot of cliché plot beats and schmaltzy sentiment. 93 minutes PG-13.

Now, Mexican horror king Guillermo del Toro produces (but does not direct) this loose adaptation. The film is set in small town New England where a group of young people investigates the mystery of Sarah Bellows, a haunted woman who wrote all of her twisted nightmares into a book. And now all of those stories are coming to life. (Which, if we're being honest, is kinda the plot to 2015's Goosebumps adaptation.) 111 minutes PG-13.
