By  | 

NEW YORK, N.Y. (NBC News) - Daniel Craig can't get even a “Quantum of Solace” in "Knives Out." This modern-day whodunit features the "James Bond" star as a southern-fried detective. He's investigating the death of a crime novelist on the victim's 85th birthday. And there's no shortage of suspects in this all-star ensemble cast that includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Evans, and Toni Collette. "Knives Out" is rated PG-13.

A couple's first date might also be their last in "Queen and Slim." "Get Out" star Daniel Kaluuya headlines this one. He connects with lawyer Jodie Turner-Smith for an ordinary night out. But when a traffic stop escalates into an abuse of rights, the officer ends up dead, and the fugitives become a symbol of resistance in an era of videotaped police brutality. "Queen and Slim" is rated R.

Anthony Hopkins calls for the “Silence of his Lambs” in "The Two Popes." This drama gives a behind the scenes look at the resignation of Pope Benedict. Hopkins plays the embattled pontiff presiding over the church during the height of the abuse scandal. Jonathan Pryce is a reformer and critic who becomes Pope Francis after Benedict unexpectedly steps-down. "The Two Popes" is in select theaters this week.
