Joker
Starts January 7

Warner Bros.

You’ve seen origin stories about comic book heroes, but what about a villain? In what might be a movie first, Batman’s nemesis gets a stand-alone cinematic deep dive. In a powerful performance by Joaquin Phoenix, viewers get a window on what made Arthur Fleck become the Joker. The character study is described as visceral, brilliant, and unforgettable—which is why Phoenix won the Golden Globe for his performance.


Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
Starts January 14
Rated PG
Disney

The sequel to the global box office hit, Angelina Jolie returns as Maleficent—set years after she and Aurora bond. Despite the love between the two, hatred between man and the fairy world continues. When Aurora and her prince are about to marry, a war unfolds, testing the ties between Maleficent and her “beastie.” There are heroes, villains, eye-popping visuals, and plenty of Disney heart making this a worthy watch!


Zombieland: Double Tap

Sony Pictures

After years of rumors about a sequel to the cult favorite, it is finally here with the same fantastic cast, irreverent humor, and yes, blood.

Hot tip: one reviewer says to be sure to stay on your couch through the credits!


The Addams Family

Gemini Man
Starts January 21
Rated PG-13
Paramount

Audiences loved this sci-fi thriller starring Will Smith…and Will Smith. Directed by Ang Lee, Smith plays a hitman who is targeted by a mysterious young who looks and acts suspiciously like himself. There’s action and mystery plus a lot of Lee’s usual commitment to creating a visually thrilling film.

Saran Connor is BACK. This movie picks up after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day—so 28 years after Sarah (Linda Hamilton) prevented that fateful event.
