1. 'Richard Jewell'

Veteran actor, director, producer and composer, Clint Eastwood returns to theaters on January 1 with his new and expected film ' Richard Jewell ', which has not stopped receiving compliments since its US premiere in December 2019.

After directing ' Mula ' and '15:17 Train to Paris ' in 2018, Eastwood returns to directing this drama based on real events and dealing with what happens when a piece of false news published in the media hides the truth. ' Richard Jewell ' focuses on the case of Richard Jewell, the security guard who reported finding the terrorist attack device that took place at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. At first, he was presented as a hero, since his quick reaction allowed him to save many lives. However, in a matter of days, the aspiring police officer became the number one suspect in the FBI.

2. '1917'

Sam Mendes, the director of the Oscar-winning ' American Beauty ' and ' Road to Perdition ', returns to the billboard after five years since his last film, ' Specter ', and this time he arrives on top with the nominee for Golden Globe for best film drama, ' 1917 '.

With a script written by Mendes himself with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, this war film is set in the First World War and focuses on two young British soldiers, Schofield, played by George MacKay, known as ' Captain Fantastic ', and Blake, played by Dean-Charles Chapman, actor of Tommen Baratheon in ' Game of Thrones '. These receive a seemingly impossible mission, and in a race against the clock, they must cross the enemy territory to deliver a message that will prevent a deadly attack against hundreds of soldiers, including Blake's own brother.

With a script by Robert Eggers and Max Eggers, 'The Lighthouse' is a black and white film, recorded in 4: 3 format, which is set in the late 19th century. The film tells the story of two lighthouse keepers who work together on a remote and mysterious island of New England. Both face against total isolation and end up deteriorating their mental health and fighting against their worst nightmares. The tension will increase until both characters reach a point of no return from which everything will go downhill.

Nominated for two Golden Globes in 2020, for best comedy film and best actor, ' Jojo Rabbit ' arrives in theaters on Friday, January 17 with great expectation due to all the good opinions received since its US premiere in October of 2019, even being considered by many critics as one of the best films of the past year.

This comedy is about a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy named Jojo, played by Roman Griffin Davis, whose vision of the world turns upside down, when he discovers that his single mother, Rosie, is hiding a Young Jew, named Elsa, in the attic.

In this film, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle, a renowned doctor, and veterinarian of Victorian England lives locked in himself since he lost his wife, with the only company in his collection of exotic animals.
