A Star is Born

A tale of love and romance, starring Bradley Cooper as a famed musician, and Lady Gaga as the protegee he takes under his wing.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

The FBI works closely with an elusive operative to tumble the Mexican cartel’s smuggling ring that has been bringing terrorists into America. When he resorts to dirty tactics and kidnaps a cartel member’s daughter, the lines between good and evil become increasingly blurred.

Vulture says: When The Day of the Soldado truly wallows in violence, it does so exquisitely, with the kind of hopelessness that film violence, especially around this subject matter, should convey.

Overlord

The day before D-Day, a group of American military paratroopers uncover a French town that has fallen under Nazi control, but a closer look reveals much more than they had ever anticipated finding.

Variety says: This J.J. Abrams-produced WWII thriller is less about its not-so-surprising horror twist than the pure pleasure of punching Nazis.

David Lagercrantz’s novel and addition to the popular Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series gets the silver-screen treatment, with an international cast including the likes of Claire Foy and Stephen Merchant.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

The quintessential Christmas classic moves from the stage to the screen, with Clara and Philip braving the elements to retrieve the key that unlocks her late mother’s music box and right the wrongs in the four realms.

Empire says: As sweet as a sugar plum and only slightly more nutritious, this shows scars from a tumultuous road to the screen but still emerges as a whimsical, likeable fairy tale.

Opens November 29
