Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.  It has been months since her daughter was murdered, and Mildred Hayes has seen no progress in the case.  In an effort to spur the police chief into further action, Mildred rents three billboards outside of town and covers them with pointed messages to the police and about the case.  Chief Willoughby and Mildred lock horns over the billboards and his perceived inability to move the case forward, a situation not helped by Officer Dixons’ hotheaded ways. 

Phantom Thread.  Amidst the glamour and fashion of post-war London, dressmaker Renyolds Woodcock and his sister Cyril stand as giants.  The important, and those who claim to be, all clamor to be dressed in the finest from the House of Woodcock.  In addition, through Renyolds’ life flow a steady stream of women, until Alma comes into his life.  The young woman soon becomes his muse and more, and his carefully planned and orderly life is disrupted in perhaps the best of ways.

Big Little Lies (Season 1).  A beachfront town may seem idyllic, but underneath the success and beautiful homes lies a hotbed of mischief, greed, jealousy, and murder.  Seen through the eyes of three mothers –Madeline, Celeste, and Jane – the myths that surround society are peeled away to expose truth hiding beneath.  In a community fueled by rumors and divided into haves and have-nots, conflict is sure to pop up.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.  The magical board game/portal to another world is back, this time as a classic video game system.  When four high school students are sucked into the game they become the characters they chose in the game, with all the skills and faults of each character becoming their own.  In a world designed to test their skills and teamwork, can four different individuals come together not just to survive, but win?
