Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
The ladies of Stars Hollow are back for more in this heartwarming Netflix revival, which sees the return of creator Amy Sherman-Palladino after her sudden departure following the drama’s sixth season finale in 2006. Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel reprise their roles as Lorelai and Rory, respectively, along with a score of familiar faces, including Melissa McCarthy, Milo Ventimiglia, Scott Patterson, Keiko Agena, and Kelly Bishop.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres Friday, Nov. 25 on Netflix.
Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard team up for the first time in Robert Zemeckis’ thrilling period drama Allied. The film sees the Oscar winners portraying a pair of WWII-era operatives — Max, a Canadian intelligence officer, and Marianne, a French resistance fighter — who fall in love while on a deadly mission in Northern Africa. They eventually marry in London, though Marianne’s loyalties to Max come under scrutiny as his military superiors suspect she is a Nazi spy. The film has thus far received decent reviews from critics, particularly EW’s Chris Nashawaty, who calls the film’s leads “smart” and “smoldering” in his B+ review.
Allied is now playing in theaters nationwide.
