Hey, movie fans!

Here’s some of what we’ve been covering over the last week. Our co-chief film critic Manohla Dargis took a look at women action stars, and how they’ve made her think differently about representation. With Broadway shuttered, Alexis Soloski wrote about how streamers and Hollywood studios are looking to keep theater enterprises alive on home screens. And Thomas Vinciguerra paid tribute to the life and career of Sean Connery, who died on Oct. 31 at age 90.

New movies out this week include the Kevin Costner and Diane Lane-starring drama “Let Him Go” and the Eva Green-starring astronaut tale “Proxima.” And if you didn’t get enough scares in during October, plenty of new horror is carrying over into this month. That includes terror in the woods (“Triggered,” “Koko-di Koko-da”) and terror right at home in the family (“Kindred,” “The Dark and the Wicked”). Enjoy the movies!
