    DC's favorite femme fatale, Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) takes center stage, in this redemption song, as she shakes her toxic relationship with Joker and connects with a gang of three deadly women – Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), and Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez) – to take down crime boss Black Mask (Ewan McGregor).

    A slain soldier (Vin Diesel) is re-animated and infused with superpowers in this Valiant Comics adaptation. The unfortunate coronavirus outbreak destroyed any legs this action/superhero hybrid might have had, but perhaps it will find some rejuvenated life at home.

    In the thick of World War I, two young infantry soldiers (George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman) are tasked with a mission to cross enemy lines and deliver a message to halt a deadly attack that could kill hundreds of soldiers. Shot as a continuous take, Sam Mendes' Oscar-winning war drama is an immersive experience that makes you feel the story's time crunch as if you're there alongside the characters.

    Winner of the Sundance Dramatic Grand Jury Prize, Chinonye Chukwu's portrait of a warden that confronts the personal demons of her job as she prepares for another execution of an inmate, earned lead actress Alfre Woodard critical praise and a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination. It may have been overlooked by the Academy Awards this past awards season, but if you're looking for riveting drama, don't pass this one over.
