The Best Movies in Theaters Right Now

As February goes on, these are some of the best movies currently playing in theaters.

There's never been a better time to be a movie fan, especially if you love checking out your local movie theaters . From re-releases of classic titles to exciting big-budget spectacles, it seems as if there's always something new and exciting to stare at over a bucket of popcorn. However, with the popularity of streaming among a huge influx of popular titles arriving in the coming days, how are you supposed to know what the best movies in theaters are?

Thankfully, we're here to address those concerns. We've taken the time to highlight a number of prominent releases, both old and new, that are currently playing in theaters. From terrific dramas to heart-pounding action films, there's certainly no shortage of things to see whenever you head down to your local cinema. Don't believe us? Here are just a handful of the best movies currently playing in theaters . We'll be updating this list periodically to reflect the best of the best movies as they come and go.

1 Lisa Frankenstein (2024)

Lisa Frankenstein

Lisa Frankenstein

Lisa Frankenstein is more than just its title suggests. A neon-soaked film set firmly within the 1980s, Lisa Frankenstein tells the story of Lisa Swallows (Kathryn Newton), a goth girl living in a world that can't seem to understand her. However, when she takes an interest in the corpse of a boy from the Victorian era, she takes initiative. With morbid science at her disposal, she revives the boy, aiming to make him into the man of her dreams. Cole Sprouse of Riverdale and The Suite Life of Zack & Cody fame co-stars as Lisa's undead companion.

Lisa Frankenstein Pairs Zelda Williams With Diablo Cody

Lisa Frankenstein has all the pieces for a fantastic film. Zelda WIlliams makes her directorial debut here, melding the 1980s with all the terrifically tacky camp you could ask for. Combine that with a screenplay by Diablo Cody, who previously made waves with her terrific horror comedy Jennifer' s Body , and you have the makings of what could very well be one of the most entertaining movies of 2024. For anyone interested in a fresh retelling of Mary Shelley's classic tale, Lisa Frankenstein will surely deliver. Watch the trailer for Lisa Frankenstein on YouTube

2 Scrambled (2024)

Scrambled

Read Our Review

Scrambled is a movie that originally made the rounds through film festivals in 2023, though now it has finally been released to the public. An auteur project by Leah McKendrick, who stars in this film in addition to writing and directing, Scrambled tells the story of Nellie Robinson. As she approaches her mid 30s, Nellie is given an unfortunate ultimatum by her doctor. With a certain biological clock ticking down, Nellie makes the decision to freeze her eggs, all while dealing with the ripples her choice has in her personal life.

Scrambled Is Delightfully Sincere

Being a film inspired by McKendrick's own life experiences, a genuine sense of sincerity shines through its palpable drama and hearty laughs. Its relatability and personable themes will feel welcomed by those who share a similar plight with Nellie, as she struggles with making an important decision while figuring out her life path. The laughs found throughout also do an excellent job of balancing out the film's more insightful moments. Watch the trailer for Scrambled on YouTube

3 The Beekeeper (2024)

The Beekeeper

The Beekeeper

Read our Review

Director David Ayer and legendary actor Jason Statham unite to bring us The Beekeeper , a film in which Adam Clay (Statham) tends to a modest hive of honey bees on a quiet Massachusetts farm. Of course, he also happens to be a former operative of the "Beekeeper" organization, an illusive group who trained Clay in the art of violent espionage. When Clay's landlady, Eloise Parker (Phylicia Rashad), falls victim to a disastrous phishing scam, the tragic fallout will lead Clay on a personal quest to find those responsible. However, the more he digs, the more he'll realize just how far the rabbit hole goes.

The Beekeeper Has High Octane Action

If David Ayer is known for anything, it's for his stylish direction. With notable high points in his filmography, including titles like Fury and End of Watch , it's natural to expect a similar level of flair in The Beekeeper . Combined with Statham's gritty performance and villains you can't help but hate, The Beekeeper delivers a straightforward if not highly effective action film that's sure to entertain. If that's not enough of a sell, you'll be happy to know that Kurt Wimmer penned the film's screenplay, having previously collaborated with Ayer on his 2008 film Street Kings . Watch the trailer for The Beekeeper on YouTube

4 the boys in the boat (2023), december 25.

The Boys in the Boat

The Boys in the Boat

George Clooney produced and directed The Boys in the Boat , a film based on the titular 2013 novel by Daniel James Brown. Just as the book does, The Boys in the Boat depicts a true story set in the 1936 Summer Olympics, focusing specifically on the University of Washington rowing team. An underdog story at its core, the film follows their triumphant story as the team overcomes their troubled pasts and tense competition at this historically significant event. Joel Edgerton stars as the team's coach, Al Ubrickson, with Callum Turner playing the role of Joe Rantz.

An Effective Underdog Story

Against the backdrop of 1936, which featured the last Olympic Games prior to the advent of World War II, The Boys in the Boat is an effective sleeper hit that'll touch on familiar story beats from the sports genre. Clooney clearly had a clear vision in mind for this film, and if you're the type to enjoy a classic sports story, The Boys in the Boat is right up your alley. Of course, the film is made even more effective with performances provided by Peter Guinness, Jack Mulhern, and James Wolk. Watch the trailer for The Boys in the Boat on YouTube

5 American Fiction (2023)

December 15.

American Fiction poster

American Fiction

Cord Jefferson's directorial debut presents a particularly intriguing tale caked in nuance. American Fiction tells the story of Thelonious Ellison (Jeffrey Wright), a novelist based in Los Angeles who is currently facing a financial rut. When his latest book is rejected by his publisher due to creative differences, Ellison comes up with a plan: instead of writing from the heart, he creates a book that deliberately satirizes stereotypical depictions of Black people under a pseudonym. Unfortunately, the book's unintentional breakout success both critically and commercially puts him in a brand-new rut.

American Fiction Combines Hilarity With Bias

An incredibly effective comedy film, Jeffrey Wright could've easily carried American Fiction with his performance were it not for the other positive elements found throughout. The film's many jokes allow us to look inwardly at our own racial and cultural biases, and given its wide acclaim from a plethora of critical institutions, it certainly resonated with a sizable audience. The film itself would go on to be nominated for Best Picture, with Jeffrey Wright and Sterling K. Brown garnering nominations for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor respectively. Watch the trailer for American Fiction on YouTube

Speaking of Sterling K. Brown and Jeffrey Wright, be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Brown and Wright below:

6 Wonka (2023)

Wonka

Willy Wonka (Timothée Chalamet) gains friends and powerful enemies while trying to achieve his chocolatier dreams.

First impressions were admittedly pretty mixed when Wonka was first revealed to the public. Thankfully, this reimagining of the titular candy mogul's origins is as entertaining as it is sweet. Timothée Chalamet dons the famed chocolatier's persona in Wonka as he rises to the top from humble beginnings, presenting an overall narrative that stands on its own when compared to other films featuring the character. That said, this musical comedy features plenty of memorable songs and reprisals of familiar themes.

Wonka Is a Surprising Prequel

It's safe to say that Wonka was a pleasant surprise in a sea of legacy sequels and prequels. Chalamet does a fine job in presenting a younger version of Willy Wonka, with the surrounding cast — including the likes of Rowan Atkinson, Keegan-Michael Key, Hugh Grant, and more — giving it their all in this musical comedy. The film is incredibly whimsical , and best of all, it delivers more than you would expect from a typical legacy prequel. Watch the trailer for Wonka on YouTube

7 Poor Things (2023)

Poor Things

Poor Things

A critical darling shortly after it premiered, this late 2023 film is still hanging around in theaters if you haven't gotten a chance to see it. Poor Things is the latest venture by director Yorgos Lanthimos, adapting the titular novel originally written by Alasdair Gray. In it, a young woman named Bella (Emma Stone) is miraculously brought back from the dead via the work of scientist Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). However, to do so, Godwin had to replace Bella's brain with that of an unborn child. What follows is an eclectic journey of self-discovery as Bella's worldview starts to quickly shift into something more mature.

Yorgos Lanthimos setting with Emma Stone, with her performances from The Favourite and Poor Things

How Yorgos Lanthimos Brings Out the Best in Emma Stone

Yorgos lanthimos dazzles yet again.

Lanthimos has certainly built up a reputation for his unconventional films, with notable titles like Dogtooth and The Lobster being two particularly eclectic examples. In spite of its strange premise, however, Poor Things struck a chord with a wider audience. Not only did the film receive nominations for both Best Director and Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but it also delivered some impeccable casting as well, with talents like Mark Ruffalo and Jerrod Carmichael grounding the film's strange premise. Emma Stone would even secure a Best Actress nomination for her performance here as well. Watch the trailer for Poor Things on YouTube

New Movies in Theaters Now: What’s Playing

Here’s what’s out at your local multiplex

movies in movie theatres right now

The December holidays is a time for many to gather with friends and/or family and eat a lot of food, but plenty also take the opportunity to head to the local multiplex to check out a new movie. But if you’re wondering just what new movies are playing in theaters right now, we’ve got you covered. Below we’ve run down the major new releases currently playing, from Oscar contenders to thrillers to blockbuster sequels.

Avatar: The Way of Water

avatar-the-way-of-water-jake-sully

Over a decade after “Avatar” first hit theaters, James Cameron’s long-awaited sequel (the first of a planned four sequels in total) has arrived. And “Avatar: The Way of Water” is precisely the kind of movie for which movie theaters were made. This is an eye-popping, three-hour thrill ride that transports you to Pandora well beyond the sights and sounds of the first film. As the title suggests, water is a big theme here as Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and his family spend a significant amount of time with the reef tribe of Na’vi who live near the ocean. See this one in IMAX 3D if you can to really get the full experience. – Adam Chitwood

avatar-the-way-of-water-image

A three-hour epic of a different sort, “Babylon” is a very R-rated look at 1920s Hollywood before, during and after the arrival of talkies. Margot Robbie plays a young ingenue who becomes a silent movie starlet (and sex symbol); Brad Pitt is an iconic silent film star who struggles to transition to talkies; and newcomer Diego Calva plays a wide-eyed Mexican-American who dreams of working in the movies. Oscar-winning “La La Land” and “First Man” filmmaker Damien Chazelle directs it all with panache to spare, and an absolutely stacked ensemble cast that includes Spike Jonze, Jean Smart and Jovan Adepo. This one’s drawn a divisive response from critics so your mileage may vary, but if any of the above sounds compelling, give it a go. Just be warned, the R-rating is no joke. – Adam Chitwood

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

puss-in-boots-the-last-wish

At long last, another “Shrek” movie! Kind of. “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” is a sequel to the 2011 spinoff starring Antonio Banderas’ lovable cat, and this story finds him having used up eight of his nine lives. With one life left to live, Puss goes in search of a way to extend his life, but along the way he must tread carefully — he’s only got one life to live now, literally. – Adam Chitwood

Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Naomie Ackie as Whitney Houston in "Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody" (2022)

Whitney Houston gets the biopic treatment with “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” from director Kasi Lemmons (“Eve’s Bayou”) and the screenwriter of “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Anthony McCarten). Naomi Ackie fills the role of the songstress, and the film surprisingly gets into some of the more intimate aspects of Houston’s life — including her attraction to women and drug use. Ackie lip syncs to Houston’s songs in the film, and the story celebrates the major hallmarks of her career. – Adam Chitwood

Violent Night

Violent Night

If you’re looking to watch something specific to the holidays, how does David Harbour as an ass-kicking Santa Claus sound? “Violent Night” stars Harbour as a gruff iteration of Jolly Old Saint Nick who finds himself stranded in a warehouse and battling a who’s who of bad guys. Throw in John Leguizamo as the Big Bad and you have yourself an R-rated good time. – Adam Chitwood

Horror 2022

“Black Swan” and “mother!” filmmaker Darren Aronofsky returns with his new drama “The Whale,” which stars Brendan Fraser as a morbidly obese teacher who attempts to reconnect with his daughter while battling convestive heart failure. This one’s drawing significant Oscar buzz for Fraser’s performance, but be forewarned: it’s a bummer.

Anya Taylor-Joy in "The Menu"

Before or after your Thanksgiving feast, “The Menu” could make you feel better about what might have gone wrong in your preparations or celebration of the holiday. With a screenplay from writers Will Tracy (“Succession”) and Seth Reiss (“Late Night with Seth Meyers”), the film embarks on a creepy culinary experience with several well-known stars. Something sinister lurks beneath the surface of Hawthorne, a lavish restaurant located in a remote island location where a domineering chef rules. His servers see themselves as family, but he warns a certain character that there is a line between guests and help, and she must be careful once she crosses it. Anya Taylor-Joy and Nicholas Hoult star opposite Ralph Fiennes in this “eat the rich” thriller. John Leguizamo also appears. – Dessi Gomez

Anya Taylor-Joy in "The Menu"

The Fabelmans

fabelmans

Steven Spielberg is back with a brand new film, and this time it’s personal. Extra personal. “The Fabelmans” finds Spielberg telling a story directly inspired by his childhood, of a young boy who becomes obsessed with movies (and moviemaking) all while his parents’ marriage begins to dissolve, unbeknownst to him. Michelle Williams and Paul Dano plays stand-ins for Spielberg’s parents, and this one’s already generating series Oscar buzz. While the filmmaker has mined his personal life (and particularly his parents’ divorce) in many of his films via metaphor, this one sees him taking a more direct route – he even co-wrote the screenplay. – Adam Chitwood

Gabriel LaBelle shot by Jeff Vespa

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

black-panther-wakanda-forever-shuri-okoye

The simultaneously tragic and triumphant sequel to Marvel’s “Black Panther” (2018) brings the meaning of family home, allowing time to mourn Chadwick Boseman’s character and grieve the shift in his family. “Wakanda Forever” expands the MCU beyond Wakanda, diving deep underwater to the kingdom of Talokan, home of new antagonist Namor (Tenoch Huerta). Letitia Wright reprises her role of Princess Shuri alongside Angela Bassett as Queen Ramonda, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia and Danai Gurira as General Okoye. Winston Duke also returns as M’Baku. – Dessi Gomez

Black Panther Wakanda Forever

The investigation that led to the conviction of Harvey Weinstein is chronicled in the drama “She Said,” which stars Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan as the two New York Times reporters who broke the story – Jodi Cantor and Megan Twohey. The film is based on the book of the same name by Cantor and Twohey. – Adam Chitwood

The Best Movies in Theaters Right Now

Looking to head to the theater? We've got you covered.

For several years, we had “The Best Movies in Theaters” as a running article. We felt it was a helpful utility for those looking for a night out at the movies. Obviously, the pandemic shut all that down pretty quickly, but now that the vaccines are here and widely available, that means there’s a path back to the movies. Let us stress that you should really only be going back to the movies if you’re fully vaccinated. To return to an enclosed space where people may or may not be wearing masks and may or may not be infected with COVID is not a wise decision. While you should still wear a mask whenever possible at the theater (per current CDC guidelines), it’s far safer to go to the movies once you’re fully vaccinated.

If you have been fully vaccinated, you’re probably itching to go back to the movies, and the good news is that there are some great films worth checking out. Below you’ll find our recommendations of films that are currently playing in theaters. While some of these movies are also on streaming, nothing can compare to the theatrical experience, and we think it’s worth going out to see these films on the big screen.

However, what's most important is your health. Please only go to the movies if you're fully vaccinated and feel comfortable being in an auditorium.

Editor's note: Last updated August 2nd to add The Green Knight and Jungle Cruise .

The Green Knight

the green knight movie image

Writer/Director: David Lowery

Cast: Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sarita Choudhury, Sean Harris, and Ralph Ineson.

Fair warning: The Green Knight is weird. If you haven't seen David Lowery 's 2017 movie A Ghost Story , you may be thrown by the kind of unique tone he brings to his adaptation of the medieval chivalric legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight . However, the story is still easy to follow--the young, untested Gawain ( Dev Patel ) meets the challenge of dealing a blow to the Green Knight ( Ralph Ineson ) with the understanding that the blow will be returned in a year's time. When Gawain tries to show off by beheading the Knight, he's startled when the Knight picks up his own head, and says he'll meet Gawain in the Green Chapel one year hence.

So begins an episodic journey where Gawain is repeatedly beset by temptations and challenges as he goes to meet his destiny against a foe who promises to behead him. It's a fascinating, sumptuous film that explores what it means to live with honor in the face of certain death. If you can get on board with what Lowery is doing here, you'll be rewarded with one of the year's best films. - Matt Goldberg

Jungle Cruise

jungle-cruise-cast-dwayne-johnson-emily-blunt-social

Director: Jaume Collet-Serra

Writers: Glenn Ficarra, John Requa, and Michael Green

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, Édgar Ramírez, and Paul Giamatti.

The latest adaptation of a Disney theme park attraction wisely borrows some plot points and energy from Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl . The film follows scientist Lily Houghton ( Emily Blunt ) and her uptight brother MacGregor ( Jack Whitehall ) as they join with acerbic boat captain Frank ( Dwayne Johnson ) on the search for a mystical flower that's said to have incredible healing powers. However, the trio is pursued by a German officer ( Jesse Plemons ) hoping that the flower will help him win World War I as well as the cursed spirits of Spanish conquistadors.

Jungle Cruise has a light, fun adventure energy that makes it perfect for an afternoon out at the movies. It's charming, Blunt and Johnson have terrific chemistry, and the film is colorful and fast-paced. It's the kind of movie you could easily slot alongside the original Pirates or 1999's The Mummy for a lazy weekend in that it provides a good time without making any heavy demands of its audience. - Matt Goldberg

zola-riley-keough-taylour-paige-1

Director: Janicza Bravo

Writer: Janicza Bravo and Jeremy O. Harris

Cast: Taylour Paige, Riley Keough, Nicholas Braun, Ari'el Stachel, and Colman Domingo

Before you turn away at "based on a Twitter thread", give Zola a chance. Yes, the film was based on a famous Twitter thread by Aziah "Zola" King from 2015, but director/co-writer Janicza Bravo turns it into an electrifying and satisfying story of backstabbing, increasing insanity, race, sex, Internet culture, and more. The film follows Zola ( Taylour Paige ) and her odd friendship with Stefani ( Riley Keough ), who says that the two of them can make some easy money stripping in Tampa, but once along for the ride Zola realizes this is not the fun trip she was promised. Thankfully, she always manages to keep her head as everything continues to spin out of control around her. Bravo's razor sharp direction shows she's a filmmaker to watch, and you'll easily get wound up in this stranger-than-fiction tale. - Matt Goldberg

In the Heights

in-the-heights-anthony-ramos-social

Director: Jon M. Chu

Writer: Quiara Alegría Hudes

Cast: Anthony Ramos, Corey Hawkins, Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera, Olga Merediz, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Gregory Diaz IV, and Jimmy Smits

If you’re looking for a big, bold, colorful, and exuberant theatrical experience for the summer, you probably won’t do much better than Jon M. Chu ’s adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda ’s Tony-winning musical In the Heights . The story follows a group of young Washington Heights residents during the summer and their various dreams. There’s Usnavi ( Anthony Ramos ) who dreams of moving back to his father’s homeland of the Dominican Republic; Nina ( Leslie Grace ) who wants to move back home after making it to Stanford due to feeling like an outsider; and Vanessa ( Melissa Barrera ), who wants to get out of the neighborhood to work as a fashion designer. The story explores the complexities of the immigrant and 1st-generation American experience without ever losing the vibrancy and immediacy of the musical numbers that are destined to get stuck in your head. If there’s an ideal film to welcome people back to theaters, In the Heights is it. - Matt Goldberg

The Sparks Brothers

The Sparks Brothers

Director: Edgar Wright

If you’ve never heard of Sparks, that’s okay. The thesis of Edgar Wright ’s first documentary, The Sparks Brothers , is that you’ve never heard about one of the greatest bands of all-time, but your favorite bands have. The massive documentary flies by as Wright covers all 25 albums from Sparks, a band comprised of brothers Russell and Ron Mael . Through interviews with both the band, their admirers, and a wealth of footage, The Sparks Brothers makes the convincing case that Sparks was a game-changing band that never got the recognition they were due despite their creative bravado and willingness to chart their own path. If you’re not a fan of Sparks going into The Sparks Brothers , you will be by the time you leave it. – Matt Goldberg

Best Movies in Theaters Right Now

A s the turbulent 2023 movie season transitions into 2024, audiences are about to be inundated with all kinds of new films, including franchise tentpoles, emotionally resonant independent films, and more. With so many films in theaters right now, it truly seems that cinema is back and better than ever.

However, with movies of all age ratings and genres playing in theaters at the same time, it can be easy to lose track of each new feature. While some of the films currently in cinemas can be skipped, others are playing right now that audiences simply won't want to miss.

Updated January 2, 2024 by Jordan Iacobucci: This article has been updated to reflect films that are currently in theaters.

The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes

The hunger games: the ballad of songbirds and snakes.

Coriolanus Snow mentors and develops feelings for the female District 12 tribute during the 10th Hunger Games.

Release Date 2023-11-17

Director Francis Lawrence

Cast Tom Blyth, Peter Dinklage, Jason Schwartzman, Hunter Schafer, Rachel Zegler, Fionnula Flanagan, Viola Davis, Burn Gorman

Rating PG-13

Runtime 2 Hours 37 Minutes

Main Genre Sci-Fi

Genres Drama, Thriller

Writers Suzanne Collins, Michael Lesslie, Michael Arndt

Production Company Color Force, Good Universe, Lionsgate

REVIEW: The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes is Enjoyable and Captivating, but Falls Apart in its Third Act

Eight years after the conclusion of the Hunger Games franchise, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes offers an origin story for the villainous President Coriolanus Snow. The film follows a young Snow as he mentors a District 12 tribute in the 10th annual Hunger Games, only to find that he has fallen in love with her.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes reignites the passionate Hunger Games fanbase that has remained dormant for the better part of a decade. The film includes all of the best parts of the Hunger Games movies while telling a compelling and necessary story in the franchise's overall plot.

Godzilla Minus One

Original title: Gojira -1.0

Post war Japan is at its lowest point when a new crisis emerges in the form of a giant monster, baptized in the horrific power of the atomic bomb.

Release Date 2023-12-01

Director Takashi Yamazaki

Cast Yki Yamada, Minami Hamabe, Sakura And, Rynosuke Kamiki

Main Genre Action

Genres Drama, Adventure

Writers Takashi Yamazaki

Runtime 2 Hours 4 Minutes

Production Company Robot Communications, Toho Company, Toho Studios

REVIEW: Godzilla Minus One Revitalizes the Franchise by Going Back to Its Roots

As the Godzilla franchise reaches a new Renaissance with multiple films and series planned for the next several months, Toho delivers one of its best films featuring the iconic King of the Monsters. Godzilla Minus One goes back to the days following World War II when a recovering Japan discovers that a massive beast has been awakened in the ocean — and it is bent on destroying everything in its path.

Godzilla Minus One is the perfect counterpart to the ongoing American Monsterverse franchise, choosing to focus on a cast of compelling characters as they navigate Godzilla's destruction. The film doesn't shortchange audiences when it comes to epic kaiju action, either, delivering some truly outstanding action sequences despite its tiny budget.

Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom

Aquaman and the lost kingdom.

Aquaman balances his duties as king and as a member of the Justice League, all while planning a wedding. Black Manta is on the hunt for Atlantean tech to help rebuild his armor. Orm plots to escape his Atlantean prison.

Release Date 2023-12-22

Director James Wan

Cast Dolph Lundgren, Patrick Wilson, Jason Momoa, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Ben Affleck, Temuera Morrison

Runtime 124 minutes

Main Genre Superhero

Genres Superhero, Action, Adventure, Fantasy

Writers David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, James Wan, Jason Momoa

REVIEW: Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Jason Momoa stars in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, wherein Arthur Curry struggles to balance his responsibilities as a father, husband, son, brother, and king of Atlantis. Things take a turn for the worse, however, when he is confronted by his old nemesis, Black Manta, who has unleashed an ancient and deadly power. Arthur is then forced to team up with his brother Orm to defeat Black Manta and save the world.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is the final entry in the DC Extended Universe before James Gunn's rebooted DCU launches. While it is far from the best that the DCEU has to offer, audiences will want to check out Aquaman's last adventure, if only to say goodbye to the long-running franchise.

A family of ducks try to convince their overprotective father to go on the vacation of a lifetime.

Director Guylo Homsy, Benjamin Renner

Cast Carol Kane, Elizabeth Banks, Danny DeVito, Awkwafina

Runtime 92 minutes

Main Genre Animation

Genres Animation, Action, Adventure

Writers Benjamin Renner, Mike White

Migration is an animated family film following a family of ducks as they leave the confines of their safe home and travel around the world. Along the way, the family meets a series of colorful characters and explores picturesque locations. The film also features a star-studded cast, including the vocal stylings of Kumail Nanjiani, Elizabeth Banks, Awkwafina, Keegan Michael-Key, and Danny DeVito.

For audiences looking for a fun family comedy, Migration is a perfect choice. The film follows in the footsteps of many animated classics before it like Rio and The Croods in featuring a family sticking together as their entire world changes around them.

Anyone But You

After an amazing first date, Bea and Ben's fiery attraction turns ice cold - until they find themselves unexpectedly reunited at a destination wedding in Australia. So they do what any two mature adults would do: pretend to be a couple.

Director Will Gluck

Cast Darren Barnet, Alexandra Shipp, Sydney Sweeney, Glen Powell

Runtime 103 minutes

Main Genre Comedy

Genres Romance, Comedy

Writers Ilana Wolpert, Will Gluck

Anyone But You is a romantic comedy starring Top Gun: Maverick 's Glenn Powell and Euphoria 's Sydney Sweeney. Loosely based on William Shakespeare's classic play, Much Ado About Nothing , the film follows Bea and Ben as they pretend to be a couple, only to uncover a fiery romance that neither expected to find.

In a landscape increasingly devoid of good romantic comedies, Anyone But You fills the void in many viewers' lives with a fun and engaging story filled with twists and turns. Complimented by a captivating cast of up-and-coming actors, Anyone But You is a delight.

The Color Purple

A woman faces many hardships in her life, but ultimately finds extraordinary strength and hope in the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood.

Release Date 2023-12-25

Director Blitz Bazawule

Cast Colman Domingo, Halle Bailey, Elizabeth Marvel, Louis Gossett Jr., Taraji P. Henson, David Alan Grier

Runtime 140 minutes

Main Genre Musical

Genres Drama, Musical

Writers Marsha Norman, Alice Walker, Marcus Gardley

Based on Alice Walker's classic novel and the original 1982 film adaptation of the same name, The Color Purple depicts the difficult landscape for Black men and women in early 20th-century America. Nevertheless, two sisters band together to make lives for themselves against all the odds.

While Hollywood may be choked with cynical remakes, The Color Purple defies the trend by delivering a spectacular reimagining of a classic story. The film is elevated by its phenomenal cast, which includes The Little Mermaid 's Halle Bailey , Taraji P. Henson, Corey Hawkins, Danielle Brooks, Colman Domingo, and more.

Set in the summer of 1957, with Enzo Ferrari's auto empire in crisis, the ex-racer turned entrepreneur pushes himself and his drivers to the edge as they launch into the Mille Miglia, a treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy.

Director Michael Mann

Cast Shailene Woodley, Adam Driver, Sarah Gadon, Penelope Cruz

Runtime 130 minutes

Main Genre Biography

Genres Biography, Drama, History

Writers Brock Yates, Troy Kennedy Martin

REVIEW: Michael Mann Delivers a Compelling But Uneven Biopic in Ferrari

Adam Driver stars in Ferrari , a biopic about the prolific founder of Ferrari S.p.A. Based on Brock Yates's biography of Enzo Ferrari, the film depicts the waning years of the car manufacturer's career as well as his turbulent personal life following the death of his son Dino.

While Ferrari is not always as exciting as its trailers promised, the film is bolstered by a powerful performance from Adam Driver, who perfectly inhabits the look and mannerisms of Enzo Ferrari. The film showcases just how much of a powerhouse Driver can be, while also featuring notable performances from co-stars like Shailene Woodley and Penelope Cruz.

The Boys In The Boat

The boys in the boat.

A 1930s-set story centered on the University of Washington's rowing team, from their Depression-era beginnings to winning gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Director George Clooney

Cast Peter Guinness, Joel Edgerton, Callum Turner, Sam Strike

Main Genre Drama

Genres Biography, Drama, Sports

Writers Mark L. Smith, Daniel James Brown

Based on Daniel James Brown's book of the same name, The Boys in the Boat is the inspirational true story of the University of Washington's rowing crew, which defied the odds to compete in the 1936 Summer Olympics. The film follows the lives of the rowers and their coaches as they struggle with personal demons, family drama, and other complications, yet persevere through it all to become heroes.

Directed by George Clooney, The Boys in the Boat is a well-made and well-acted project that will leave audiences inspired and in awe of the determination and brotherhood found among the titular crew. While it may be devoid of the action and glamor of Hollywood's other end-of-the-year releases, The Boys in the Boat is a story everyone should experience.

The Iron Claw

The true story of the inseparable Von Erich brothers, who made history in the intensely competitive world of professional wrestling in the early 1980s.

Director Sean Durkin

Cast Maura Tierney, Zac Efron, Harris Dickinson, Jeremy Allen White

Genres Biography, Drama, sport

Writers Sean Durkin

Production Company A24, Access Entertainment, Access Industries

REVIEW: The Iron Claw is a Stunning Display of Zac Efron's Formidable Talents

The Iron Claw tells the true story of the Von Erich brothers, all of whom have been raised with the expectation of becoming star wrestlers. The film follows their wins and losses, their triumphs and tragedies, and their unending love for one another in the midst of hardship.

Elevated by a tremendous cast including Zac Efron, Lily James, and Jeremy Allen White, The Iron Claw is one of the best cinematic offerings from the end of 2023. Simultaneously inspirational and heartbreaking, The Iron Claw will leave audiences with much to contemplate regarding the Von Erich family and the legacy they leave behind.

With dreams of opening a shop in a city renowned for its chocolate, a young and poor Willy Wonka discovers that the industry is run by a cartel of greedy chocolatiers.

Release Date 2023-12-15

Director Paul King

Cast Rowan Atkinson, Timothee Chalamet, Hugh Grant, Sally Hawkins, Olivia Colman, Keegan-Michael Key

Runtime 116 minutes

Main Genre Fantasy

Genres Comedy, Adventure, Fantasy

Writers Simon Farnaby, Roald Dahl, Paul King

Hollywood's latest attempt at adapting Willy Wonka for the big screen comes in the form of a musical prequel starring Timothee Chalamet. Wonka follows a young Willy Wonka as he begins his zany career as a chocolatier.

Although Wonka was met with instant backlash following its early trailers, the film pleasantly surprised audiences upon its release. Featuring a colorful world of pure imagination as it has never been depicted before, Wonka is a terrific time at the theater, even if it doesn't always live up to the heights of Roald Dahl's original work.

  • Best Seattle-area movie theaters? We break it down

We’re lucky, in the Seattle area, to have a great wealth of movie theaters, from tiny indie screens to vast suburban multiplexes. And I, as The Seattle Times’ primary movie reviewer for more than 20 years (gulp), have visited most of them. Here are some of my favorites, should you have a specific cinematic need. And if you’ve got a favorite that I didn’t name, share it in the comments!

For an intimate movie date without even an armrest between you : If you’re looking to do some PG-rated snuggling during the movie, both the Grand Illusion and Big Picture (in Issaquah) feature a cozy love seat. (You can reserve the one at Big Picture in advance; it’s seats A4 and A5.) And the Prestige Room at the Ark Lodge Cinemas offers velvet couches as well as cushy armchairs.

For an adults-only experience : While the AMC Seattle 10 isn’t what it once was (I miss the Sundance Cinemas, and the Landmark Metro before that), it’s still a 21-and-over venue, so you won’t have to deal with noisy kids or texting teens. (Not that adults aren’t perfectly good at texting during movies, more’s the pity.) Also 21-and-over: Big Picture, Cinemark Reserve Lincoln Square (not to be confused with Cinemark Li n coln Square , which is all-ages), Regal Cinebarre Mountlake . McMenamins Anderson School Theater requires patrons under 21 to be accompanied by a parent/guardian; likewise the Ark Lodge, for under 18.

For when you want to go to a movie downtown but don’t want to walk in the rain : Take the light rail to the Westlake Station tunnel stop, go through Nordstrom to the top floor, take the sky bridge to Pacific Place, et voilà: You’re at AMC Pacific Place 11 , and you didn’t even get wet.

For an old-school balcony experience : I will maintain that the center seats in the balcony of the SIFF Cinema Downtown (the former Cinerama) give you the best movie view in town — but it’s not the only balcony around. The SIFF Egyptian has one (though it’s not open for every screening), as does the Historic Admiral Theater in West Seattle and the Edmonds Theater . (Fun bonus for the latter: you have to be over 18 to sit in the balcony, so there won’t be kids tossing popcorn over the edge.)

For an old-school experience, period : History buffs will appreciate the charm of the Seattle area’s handful of century-old theaters: the Admiral (which has a delightful aquatic theme, with sea horses decorating the exit signs and charmingly old-school underwater murals in the theaters), the Edmonds Theater and the SIFF Cinema Uptown . (The latter’s only 98 years old this year, but I’ll let it slide in.) Also charmingly housed in century-old buildings are the Ark Lodge and the SIFF Egyptian, the latter of which would make a perfect setting for an old-school murder mystery.

For watching a movie while (almost) lying down : Recliners, once an unheard-of cinematic luxury, are now quite commonplace in newer theaters; at this point, it’s probably easier to list theaters that don’t have them than those that do. Among my favorites are the delightful two-person recliner pods at the IPIC in Redmond, the Regal Meridian recliners that are so comfy they almost make up for the theater’s questionable sightlines and the very posh leather recliners at Bellevue’s Cinemark Reserve.

For seeing something you won’t see anywhere else : While most movie theaters offer the same handful of films, a few local cinematic treasures offer repertory programming with a broad variety of movies from all eras; among them: The Beacon , the Grand Illusion, Northwest Film Forum and Central Cinema . Check their calendars, and revel in the joy of seeing a classic or a rarity on a big screen.

  • Better food, cheaper tix: How Seattle area movie theaters are luring audiences back
  • Moira Macdonald and Bethany Jean Clement pick the best of Dinner at a Movie
  • How to see cheap(er) movies in Seattle

For going really, really big : Speaking of big screens, the Pacific Science Center IMAX theater (note that you want the Boeing IMAX, not the PACCAR IMAX, which is smaller) will make you feel like a wee ant gazing up at a mountain. Also wonderfully large: the SIFF Cinema Downtown (always and forever Cinerama in my heart), which feels even bigger than it is; the IMAX screens at Regal Thornton Place and Cinemark Lincoln Square; and the XD theater at Cinemark Totem Lake , which has a very fun color-changing entrance door that makes you feel as if you’re entering a theme park ride.

For going out to a movie with small/noisy children in tow : You can opt for a kiddie matinee and hope that somebody else’s kids are louder than yours, or you can visit the Varsity Theatre in the University District, which has an actual glass-enclosed crying room in which you can request to be seated. The sound’s through a wall-mounted speaker and not as good as the sound system in the theater — but hey, your kid’s crying anyway and at least you got out of the house, right? Give the theater a day’s notice to book the crying room: Call the main office at 206-780-0766 or email [email protected] .

For screenings with open captions : Many local theaters offer closed caption options, in the form of individual devices that provide text translation of screen dialogue (check the theater’s website or call and ask). But only a few offer open-captioned screenings — i.e. screenings with the dialogue and sounds subtitled as text on the screen, requiring no special equipment. Among them: Regal Thornton Place and Regal Meridian (select screenings throughout the week; consult the theater website) and all SIFF theaters ( on Tuesdays and Sundays ).

For easy parking : It’s not easy to find free parking at a movie theater within the Seattle city limits, but the AMC Oak Tree 6 in North Seattle has plenty of spots available in its adjacent (and free) lot. Outside the city, most theaters have easy free parking, including the Landmark Crest Cinema Center , the Regal Cinebarre Mountlake and really any theater that’s in a suburban shopping center.

For when you’re hungry : Popcorn is always a delight, but should you be in need of a more substantial meal, or a stronger drink than fountain Diet Coke, my Dinner at a Movie partner Bethany Jean Clement and I have spent many hours eating in the dark (not always easy!) and have you covered. We recommend the fare at Cinemark Reserve Lincoln Square , IPIC , Central Cinema , Regal Cinebarre Mountlake , Big Picture and Anderson School Theater . (For more details, go to our roundup of several Dinner at a Movie write-ups .)

For truly unique popcorn : I have gone on record saying I don’t like it (it tastes like chocolate-flavored soap!), but the people have spoken and most of you disagree with me. So here it is: SIFF Cinema Downtown, i.e. The Former Cinerama, is popping chocolate popcorn as we speak; go, and enjoy.

Netflix may get most of the attention, but it’s hardly a one-stop shop for cinephiles looking to stream essential classic and contemporary films. Each of the prominent streaming platforms caters to its own niche of film obsessives.

From the boundless wonders of the Criterion Channel to the new frontiers of streaming offered by the likes of Ovid and Film Movement Plus, IndieWire’s monthly guide highlights the best of what’s coming to every major streamer, with an eye toward exclusive titles that may help readers decide which of these services is right for them.

Here is your guide for February 2024.

“The Heroic Trio” (dir. Johnnie To, 1993)

Nobody runs with a theme quite like the Criterion Channel, and — between Valentine’s Day and Black History Month — February has given the streamer even more to work with than usual. First up is a tribute to the transcendent heartache of interdimensional romance, as the Channel’s immaculately curated selection of classics from the sub-genre includes canonical masterpieces like “After Life” and “A Matter of Life and Death,” heart-on-their-sleeve experiments like Francis Ford Coppola’s “Youth Without Youth” and Alain Resnais’ “Je t’aime, je t’aime,” two versions of “Solaris,” and a recent anime favorite for good measure (that would be Makoto Shinkai’s “Your Name,” of course).

The Channel’s annual celebration of Black History Month offers an incredible survey of Black history on film, ranging from documentaries like Shirley Clarke’s indelible “Portrait of Jason” and Marlon Riggs’ profoundly impactful “Tongues Untied” to generation-defining favorites like “The Watermelon Woman,” the recently restored “Alma’s Rainbow,” and Kathleen Collins’ quietly earth-shaking “Losing Ground,” which IndieWire recently named as one of the best films of the 1980s.

As if that weren’t enough, the Channel is also busting out a Gothic Nori series (“Ministry of Fear,” “The Seventh Veil,” “The House on Telegraph Hill,” etc.), mini retros devoted to Jonathan Glazer and the Safdie brothers, first-run streaming exclusives like “Amanda” and “Unrest,” a golden opportunity to watch Chen Kaige’s long-unavailable epic “Farewell my Concubine,” and a grab bag of Hong Kong hits that include the Jackie Chan/Sammo Hung team-up “My Lucky Stars,” Jeffrey Lau’s slapstick historical parody “The Eagle Shooting Heroes,” and — our pick of the month, selected more for its screenshot than anything else — Johnnie To’s deliriously fun “The Heroic Trio,” which forever redefined the idea of an all-star cast by putting Michelle Yeoh, Anita Mui, and Maggie Cheung above the title in the same movie about a baby-kidnapping wizard.

“The Marvels” (dir. Nia DaCosta, 2023)

Well, “The Marvels” is one of two movies premiering on Disney Plus this month, and I haven’t seen the other one (it’s a documentary about Black astronauts called “The Space Race,” and it will also be streaming on Hulu).

“578 Magnum” (dir. Dung Luong Dinh, 2022)

movies in movie theatres right now

An endlessly reliable source for rich and unexpected cinema from around the world, Film Movement has been connecting great movies to curious movie-lovers for more than 20 years, and — as of last December — that mission was made a lot easier, as Film Movement Plus is now available as a channel on Prime Video (the streamer’s free-standing SVOD platform remains intact at filmmovementplus.com ). To celebrate this kick-ass moment in streaming accessibility, Film Movement Plus has programmed the single most ass-kicking movie that anyone has submitted to the Oscars in a very long time. Dung Luong Dinh’s “578 Magnum” may not have landed a Best International Film nomination for Vietnam last year, but I love that the country’s nominating committee went with a go-for-broke action movie that essentially has the same plot as “Commando.” Alexandre Nguyen stars as Hùng, a truck driver — with a militarized past — who punches his way through the entire Vietnamese underworld after someone makes the deadly mistake of kidnapping his six-year-old daughter. Ribs are shattered, heads are smashed into shipping crates, and copious amounts of dye are used to turn a routine chase scene into a multi-colored explosion of death. “578 Magnum” may not have quite the same prestige as the two Naomi Kawase movies that are also making their way to Film Movement Plus this month (what does?), but it’s a bruisingly good time.

Available to stream February 23

– “Radiance” (2/23) – “Still the Water” (2/23)

“All of Us Strangers” (dir. Andrew Haigh, 2023)

movies in movie theatres right now

Arguably the single best movie to be shut out of this year’s Oscar nominations, Andrew Haigh’s “All of Us Strangers” begins with a premise so poignant that even the slightest miscalibration could make the whole thing ring false. Good thing the movie doesn’t have any of those. Andrew Scott of “Fleabag” fame stars as a lonely gay screenwriter named Adam, who’s all too at home in the eerie new London high-rise where he seems to be one of the only two residents. And wouldn’t you know it, the other renter — Harry — looks an awful lot like Paul Mescal, who plays the part with a sex-forward puckishness that disguises the same pain that it advertises with every glance (no actor on Earth is as good at selling an open wound). As the two men begin to let each other into their apartments and lives, Adam begins writing a script about his childhood in suburbia, a process that sees him visiting the house where he (and Haigh!) grew up, and communing with the spirits of his parents (Jamie Bell and Claire Foy) who died before they really got to know him.   

And so the stage is set for a plaintive ghost story whose lo-fi approach to the afterlife cleaves much closer to the wistfulness of Hirokazu Kore-eda’s “After Life” than it does the sentimentality of “Field of Dreams.” Which isn’t to suggest that “All of Us Strangers” isn’t a nuclear-grade tearjerker, because it is most definitely that, especially once Adam’s burgeoning relationship with Harry begins to compound the one he resurrects with his parents. But Haigh tells this potentially maudlin story with such a light touch that even its biggest reveals hit like a velvet hammer, and his screenplay so movingly echoes Adam’s yearning to be known — across time and space — that the film always feels rooted in his emotional present, even as it pings back and forth between dimensions.

Available to stream February 22

– “Predator” (2/4) – “Prometheus” (2/15) – “Monica” (2/25)

“Cold Case Hammarskjöld” (dir. Mads Brügger, 2019)

Danish journalist and TV personality Mads Brügger is on the hunt for evidence in this comic documentary about the 1961 death of United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld.

So here’s what we know: In 1961, United Nations secretary-general Dag Hammarskjöld died when his plane crashed in an isolated field shortly before it was scheduled to land in Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). Hammarskjöld, a fierce proponent of returning power to the various African peoples, had been on his way to negotiate a cease-fire between UN forces and the secessionist Republic of Katanga, a breakaway state that would eventually be dissolved two years later. Of the 16 victims who perished in the crash, Hammarskjöld’s body was the only one that was found intact — there was an ace of spades tucked into the lapel of his shirt. Some people were immediately suspicious of foul play. The day after the crash, former U.S. President Harry Truman said that Hammarskjöld “was on the point of getting something done when they killed him. Notice that I said ‘when they killed him.’”

Enter Mads Brügger, a conspiracy-loving Danish shit-stirrer whose impish documentaries tend to expose political and humanitarian crises through a well-calibrated mix of comedy, fearlessness, and personal humiliation. His “Cold Case Hammarskjöld” is among the best of the recent glut of WTF true-crime documentary films and series, and one of the few that has real-world implications that stretch beyond the story at hand. If this epic swan dive into the darkest abyss of modern African history is also the longest, most circuitous, and most glib of those films, Brürgger at least has the decency to argue that he couldn’t have told this story any other way.

Available to stream February 21

– “Mister America” (2/4) – “V/H/S 2” (2/7) – “Grand Piano” (2/20)

“Dicks: The Musical” (dir. Larry Charles, 2023)

movies in movie theatres right now

Anyone who reads this column on a regular basis knows that I tend to play pretty fast and loose when selecting the “best” new movies streaming each month (the “process” is heavily biased towards new exclusives over rotating library titles), and this might be the clearest possible example of how that works: I’m literally highlighting “Dicks: The Musical” over “Citizen Kane.” I mean, “Dicks: The Musical” isn’t even the best A24 movie coming to Max this February (“Priscilla,” “The Bling Ring,” and “Midsommar” offer some pretty stiff competition for that particular distinction), but choosing “Menashe” instead of “Citizen Kane” isn’t nearly as funny as choosing “Dicks: The Musical” instead of “Citizen Kane.” 

Directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”), funded by the petty cash that A24 didn’t have to spend on interns during the pandemic, based on Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp’s off-Broadway show “Fucking Identical Twins,” and starring that same duo as overtly gay parodies of the worst straight men you know, “Dicks: The Musical” is a ridiculously irreverent musical riff on “The Parent Trap” in which the estranged identical twins aren’t cute tweenage children but rather grown-ass men who sing about sacks of cum and clearly want to have sex with each other. I’m not saying that’s better than anything Orson Welles ever came up with, but I’m not not saying that, either. 

Available to stream February 2

– “Citizen Kane” (2/1) – “Midsommar” (2/1) – “Priscilla” (2/23)

“Eve’s Bayou” (dir. Kasi Lemmons, 1997)

movies in movie theatres right now

MUBI’s February release slate is a bit lighter than usual, but each of its new exclusives packs a punch (don’t miss the rare Roy Andersson short “World of Glory,” or Wang Xioshuai’s epic Chinese tear-jerker “So Long, My Son”). Most exciting of all might be the streamer’s “Cut to Black” series, which is honoring Black History Month with major work from some of the greatest Black filmmakers of the last 30+ years. You can never go wrong with Carl Franklin’s razor-sharp crime thriller “One False Move,” and the under-appreciated “Red Hook Summer” deserves another look for kickstarting the latest renaissance in Spike Lee’s ever-unpredictable career, but special attention is reserved for Kasi Lemmons’ remarkable “Eve’s Bayou,” which grows more powerful with every re-watch, and placed high on IndieWire’s recent list of the 100 best films of the 90s. Here’s what writer Leila Latif wrote about it at the time :

Set in an affluent Black community in ’60s-era Louisiana, Kasi Lemmons’ 1997 debut begins with a regal artfulness that builds to an experimental gothic crescendo, even as it reverberates with an almost “Rashomon”-like relationship to the subjectivity of truth. That uncertainty starts with the very first words we hear from Jurnee Smollett’s young protagonist, Eve Batiste: “Memory is a selection of images, some elusive, others printed indelibly on the brain. The summer I killed my father, I was 10 years old.” 

The film that follows spans the story of that summer, during which Eve comes of age through a series of brutal lessons that force her to confront the fact that her family — and her broader community beyond them — are not who childish folly had led her to believe. Lemmons’ grounds “Eve’s Bayou” in Creole history, mythology and magic all while assembling an astonishing group of Black actresses including Lynn Whitfield, Debbi Morgan, and the late-great Diahann Carroll to create a cinematic matriarchy that holds righteous judgment over the weakness of men, who are in turn are still performed with enthralling complexity by the likes of Samuel L. Jackson and Roger Gueunveur Smith. For a film of such intricate gender, racial, and sexual politics, the choice to focus it through the lens of a child gives the film an innate warmth (even at its cruelest), and keeps the plot machinations on the right side of melodrama. Throughout it all, Smollett gives an extraordinary performance that belies her age, grounding the far-reaching tragedy around her while gradually building to the bittersweet catharsis she earns for Eve by the end.

Available to stream February 1

– “One False Movie” (2/1) – “Night of the Living Dead” (2/1) – “So Long, My Son” (2/1)

“Mary and the Witch’s Flower” (dir. Hiromasa Yonebayashi, 2018)

movies in movie theatres right now

Anime fans are well aware that Netflix recently acquired exclusive streaming rights to Studio Ponoc’s upcoming release slate (founded by Studio Ghibli producer Yoshiaki Nishimura, Ponoc has long been touted as a potential successor to Ghibli’s legacy), but subscribers won’t have to wait until the release of those upcoming films to enjoy the fruits of this partnership, as Ponoc’s debut feature — 2017’s flawed but promising “Mary and the Witch’s Flower” — arrives on Netflix this month as a taste of what’s to come. And that isn’t the only worthwhile animated film that’s new on the service, as Ponoc’s glorified proof-of-concept is joined by the delightful, Charlie Kaufman-scripted kids adventure “Orion and the Dark.” And while Netflix’s release model insists that all of its awards contenders have already been released onto the platform, the streamer is compensating for that by dropping last year’s Best Picture winner, “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” 

– “Orion and the Dark” (2/2) – “Thanksgiving” (2/17) – “Everything Everywhere All at Once” (2/23)

“For the Plasma” (dirs. Bingham Bryan & Kyle Molzan, 2014)

movies in movie theatres right now

It’s rare that we get a chance to shout out a movie that splits the difference between “Celine and Julie Go Boating” and David Lynch, so the arrival of “For the Plasma” on OVID this month is reason to celebrate. Here’s what IndieWire’s former Executive Editor Eric Kohn wrote about this one-of-a-kind indie when it played at BAMCinemafest in 2014 :

You’re unlikely to see a more peculiar debut than co-directors Bingham Bryan and Kyle Molzan’s sneakily cryptic “For the Plasma,” the only world premiere at BAMcinemaFest this year. Set in a solitary lakeside cabin in Maine and its surrounding forests, this strange, muted science fiction story suggests Jacques Rivette’s “Celine and Julie Go Boating” by way of David Lynch. The story finds a pair of old friends (Anabelle LeMieux and Rosalie Lowe, both excellent and subdued) working together to monitor CCTV of various isolated regions of the forest, a meditational practice that one of them figures out how to use to predict the stock market. Meanwhile, there are inexplicable power outages possibly attributed to ghosts, meandering camping trips to monitor the footage up close, and bizarre encounters with a creepy older neighbor who delivers his lines in eerie deadpan. The dialogue features abrupt references to Proust and other existential musings that emphasize the movie’s otherworldly quality, but it never loses the overarching serenity of its environment. Sort through the pieces or just glide through its dreamlike state: “For the Plasma” offers many pleasures, but no single interpretation, and that open-ended state is a liberating alternative to anything else in recent American cinema.

– “Meeting the Man: James Baldwin in Paris” (2/8) – “Jess + Moss” (2/16) – “The Upsetter: The Life and Music of Lee Scratch Perry” (2/29)

“Past Lives” (dir. Celine Song, 2023)

movies in movie theatres right now

A slew of strong — if familiar — library titles are waiting at the summit of Mt. Paramount this month, as a pair of Audrey Hepburn classics (“Roman Holiday” and “Sabrina”) are being added to Paramount Plus alongside a variety of more recent favorites like “Zodiac” and “Magnolia.” But the biggest new prize for subscribers is undoubtedly “Past Lives,” which has arrived on streaming on the heels of being nominated for Best Picture. Even more prestigiously, Celine Song’s wistful debut was crowned the best movie of 2023 by this very website (we called it “an unforgettable romance that unfolds with the tender resignation of a Leonard Cohen song”). Watch it while you can, or spend the rest of your life wondering if this immaculate film was the one that got away. 

– “Magnolia” (2/1) – “Roman Holiday” (2/1) – “Zodiac” (2/1)

“Oppenheimer” (dir. Christopher Nolan, 2023)

movies in movie theatres right now

Oscar season is the time of year for all of the streamers to flex their most prestigious exclusives (isn’t corporate synergy fun?), and none of them have a bigger feather in their February plumage than Peacock, which is about to become the exclusive streaming home of “Oppenheimer.” And this is definitely how Christopher Nolan intended for his epic study of the American Prometheus to be watched: Frequently interrupted by commercials for “The Traitors” (Team Parvati all day). 

Paced like it was designed for interstellar travel, scripted with a degree of density that scientists once thought purely theoretical in nature, and shot with such large-format bombast that repetitive scenes (or at least Nolan-esque slices) of old politicians yelling at each other about expired security clearances hit with the same visceral impact as the 747 explosion in “Tenet,” “Oppenheimer” is nothing if not a biopic as only Christopher Nolan could make one. It’s the ideal vehicle for the filmmaker’s career-long exploration into the black holes of the human condition — the last riddles of a terrifyingly understandable world. Then again, it doesn’t feature a scene where Philip Seymour Hoffman shouts “white chocolate!” while raining airballs in a game of street basketball, so maybe we should’ve chosen “Along Came Polly” for our pick of the month. Lucky for Peacock subscribers, they won’t have to choose.

Available to stream February 16

– “Along Came Polly” (2/1) – “If Beale Street Could Talk” (2/1) – “Creed” (2/15)

“This Is Me… Now: A Love Story” (dir. Dave Meyers, 2024)

movies in movie theatres right now

If the only thing Prime were adding to its platform this month were J. Lo’s “Cloud Atlas” (aka “This Is Me… Now: A Love Story”), that would have been enough. But Jeff Bezos’ favorite content farm isn’t stopping there. Prime Video subscribers are also in store for the exclusive streaming premieres of “Bottoms” (which is easily the best “Not Another Teen Movie” since “Not Another Teen Movie”), and the totally radical “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.” Those 2023 standouts are joined by a fun array of library titles, ranging from Jane Campion’s increasingly reclaimed “In the Cut” to “Ghost World” and “12 Angry Men” — the latter of which fits the major streaming service philosophy that movies from before 1990 are okay as long as their titles also explain their entire plots. 

– “12 Angry Men” (2/1) – “Bottoms” (2/13) – “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” (2/21)

“Videodrome” (dir. David Cronenberg, 1983)

movies in movie theatres right now

It’s a good month for gore-hounds and horror lovers in general (Valentine’s Day who?), as Shudder is turning out with one of its strongest new release slates in recent memory. “Chopping Mall” is one of cinema’s finest tributes to the glory days of American mall culture, “Dario Argento: Panico” offers an incredible look inside the creative process of the greatest of all Giallo masters, “Knives and Skin” is a campy/creepy send-up of the “Young Girl Goes Missing in a Small Town” sub-genre, and “Slumber Party Massacre” is probably the best movie ever made about being getting massacred at a slumber party — unless you’re more into “Slumber Party Massacre 2,” which is also coming to Shudder this month.

But our February pick is none other than David Cronenberg’s “Videodrome,” which recently placed towards the top of IndieWire’s list of the 100 Best Movies of the 1980s. Here’s what Christian Zilko wrote about it at the time :

“Long live the new flesh” might be the most succinct distillation of an artistic worldview that a filmmaker has ever inserted into their own movie. As David Cronenberg enters his fifth decade of making films about the tension between the laws of the universe and the emerging technologies that allow humans to skirt them in pursuit of our baser instincts, “Videodrome” is an essential skeleton key for understanding his singular mind. Both a master class in practical effects and a primer on the themes that have guided Cronenberg’s career, the box office bomb has emerged as the definitive entry in the Canadian auteur’s endlessly prescient filmography.

Stylistically, “Videodrome” is a product of the 1980’s if there ever was one, immersing audiences in an aura of dated techno-sleaze that pairs perfectly with a story about an antique medium like cable television. But while we’ve abandoned the days of staying up late prowling for violence and smut on obscure TV channels, depraved Internet porn and the reality distortion field of social media have validated Cronenberg’s damning predictions a thousand times over. “Videodrome” is unparalleled in its understanding of the ways that contemporary entertainment consumption can reveal just how chained we are to our primal urges. The “Videodrome” TV show might not be broadcasting from Malaysia anymore, but humanity may never shake the feeling that there’s a world of secret pleasures that could liberate us if we could only find the forbidden media that contains them.

– “Chopping Mall” (2/1) – Knives and Skin” (2/1) – “Dario Argento: Panico” (2/2)
