The Personal History of David Copperfield
A fresh and distinctive take on Charles Dickens' semi-autobiographical masterpiece, The Personal History Of David Copperfield, set in the 1840's, chronicles the life of its iconic title character (played by Dev Patel) as he navigates a chaotic world to find his elusive place within it.
Master filmmaker Christopher Nolan returns with his most ambitious film yet. Armed with only one word -- Tenet -- and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.
A searing look at a day in the life of an assistant to a powerful executive. As Jane follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the insidious abuse that threatens every aspect of her position.
The Invisible Man
(124 minutes) R
The Invisible Man is a horror-thriller from Universal starring Elisabeth Moss as Cecilia, "C," a woman who escapes her abusive boyfriend Adrian (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) only to find out that Adrian, "a leader in the field of optics" who supposedly died by suicide early in the film, is actually still alive, and has designed a suit that makes him completely invisible...
(119 minutes) MA
Sam Mendes' First World War film looks like it was made in one take because he and cinematographer Roger Deakins designed it that way. The story takes place over about 10 hours as two men are sent forward across several miles of no man's land to make contact with a British unit, cut off from communication. PB
(117 minutes) PG
Jane Austen's Emma is the consummate romcom. Played by Anya Taylor-Joy , everything revolves around Emma's propensity for meddling in the lives of those who surround her. Seduced by the delusion that she knows what's best for everybody, she takes on a new protegee, Harriet Smith (Mia Goth). SH
(108 minutes) M
Writer/director/actor Taika Waititi plays a comedic version of Hitler, who appears as a 10-year-old German boy's imaginary friend. It's an audacious form of comedy. Jojo Rabbit is bold in its reimagining of a familiar subject. PB
(135 minutes) G
Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women in 1868. Feminists have long argued about whether the book empowers young girls or enfolds them in a corset of middle-class fantasy about home and hearth. Director Greta Gerwig glosses over that hump with minimal fuss and admirable simplicity by allowing for both. PB
(86 minutes) M
Military Wives is director Peter Cattaneo's (The Full Monty) story of a group of wives and partners who find strength and solace in singing, while their men (and some women) serve in Afghanistan. The possibility of death on the field of battle hangs over their practice sessions like a sword, waiting to strike someone mid-song . The performances from Kristin Scott Thomas (Kate) and Sharon Horgan as Lisa are the film's best asset. PB
Sonic the Hedgehog
(100 minutes) PG
Sonic the Hedgehog is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster video game franchise from Sega that centers on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound -- human -- best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. The film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.
The Call of the Wild
(105 minutes) PG
Living a charmed life in the sunny climes of Santa Clara valley, rambunctious, super-strong St Bernard/Scotch Collie Buck is stolen and transported to the snowy wastes of the Yukon. Becoming a sled dog, he crosses paths with bereaved outdoorsman John Thornton (Harrison Ford) who sets off an adventure into the unknown.
THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON
(97 minutes) M After breaking out of an old folks home, Zak, a good-hearted young man with Down syndrome, heads down the coast of North Carolina in search of his wrestling idol, aided by new friend Tyler (Shia LaBeouf) and pursued by well-meaning carer Eleanor (Dakota Johnson). JW
It is very weird to think a highly respected thespian of Vin Diesel's refined calibre has never graced the frame of a superhero movie until now. Vinny D ain't exactly making up for lost time with his late entry into the genre. In fact, he barely pushes himself to make any effort at all in Bloodshot.

Theatre or Theater?
Theatre and theater are both nouns that mean a building, room, or outdoor structure for the presentation of plays, films, or other dramatic performances. Theatre is by far the preferred spelling in British English.
