The Woman in the Window

After being delayed from theaters due to COVID, Amy Adam’s The Woman in the Window is finally hitting Netflix. Based on A.J. Finn’s 2018 novel, follows an agoraphobic woman who believes her neighbor in the building next door has disappeared. 

Mixing Hitchcockian suspense with a model mental health twist, this thriller also features an incredible cast. Gary Oldman, Anthony Mackie, Jennifer Jason Lee, and Julianna Moore co-star in this twisty thriller.

Army of the Dead

Debuts May 21

Zack Snyder returns to the world of zombies for the first time since his film career began with Army of the Dead. If you’ve been overwhelmed by the dour sadness of his DC movies, this looks like the return of fun Zack Snyder. 

The premise is simple: A group of mercenaries travels to Las Vegas during the zombie apocalypse to rob a casino. What other movie this year is going to give you zombie tigers and Tig Notaro firing an automatic weapon? We can’t wait to see just how over the top this movie is.
