Directed by Anthony Mandler, Monster is a legal drama that centers on Steve Harmon (Kelvin Harrison Jr.), a 17-year-old honor student whose world comes crashing down around him when he is charged with felony murder. The film follows his dramatic journey from a smart, likeable film student from Harlem attending an elite high school through a complex legal battle that could leave him spending the rest of his life in prison.

The Woman in the Window, meanwhile, stars Amy Adams as an agoraphobic psychologist who befriends a neighbor across the street from her New York City brownstone condo, only to see her own life turned upside down when the woman suddenly disappears. The psychological thriller is based on the 2018 novel of the same name by A. J. Finn.

Lastly, Army of the Dead follows a group of mercenaries who plots a heist on a Las Vegas casino during a zombie outbreak. The Zack Snyder-directed film stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana de la Reguera, Theo Rossi, and more.
