FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD (Warner Bros)

Here’s your handy guide to what’s coming soon to a theater near you. It’s by no means an exhaustive list of “everything good”–this is simply what we’ve covered.

OUT NOW

A Star Is Born: Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga deliver perhaps the definitive version of the decades-old story. (Sean’s Review: 4/4)

First Man: Damien Chazelle & Ryan Gosling reunite for one of the year’s best, both an inspiring biopic and exercise in claustrophobic, white-knuckle terror. (David’s Review: 4/4)

Outlaw King: Cut down by 23 minutes for its Netflix release, the Chris Pine-starring medieval epic never quite gels. (David’s Review: 2.5/4)

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald: Unwieldy and convoluted, the latest in the Wizarding World franchise charms but ultimately disappoints. (David’s Review: 2.5/4)

Widows: Steve McQueen’s follow up to 12 Years a Slave features a thrilling heist and a wildly overqualified cast. (Chase’s Review: 3/4)

Creed II: While lacking the lightning-in-a-bottle artistry of the first film, this is still a franchise worth rooting for. (David’s Review: 3/4)

The Favourite: A wickedly delicious cake of a film, boasting three stellar female performances. (Chase’s Review: 4/4)
