The Revenant (15): While exploring the uncharted wilderness in 1823, legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) sustains injuries from a brutal bear attack.

Joy (PG-13): American biographical comedy-drama film starring Jennifer Lawrence as Joy Mangano, a self-made millionaire who created her own business empire.
