“High Life”: Acclaimed director Claire Denis’ first English-language film also is her first excursion into science fiction. Robert Pattinson stars as one of two survivors — the other is a baby — on a doomed space mission. The movie is, according to an admiring review in Variety, “extraordinary, difficult, hypnotic and repulsive.”

Also: “Hotel Mumbai”

“Captive State”: It could be a World War II movie about an occupying force, its collaborators and the resistance movement that rises up against it. Except for the spaceships. “Captive State” relocates the war-movie staples to near-future Chicago, the focal point for an alien invasion. Chicago Sun-Times movie critic Richard Roeper says it has the “cerebral, social-commentary” feel of an indie film rather than an extended firefight like “Starship Troopers.”

Streaming

“Murder Mystery”: Spencer and Tracy. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. Well, maybe not. But Netflix is pushing the “back in action” angle for “Murder Mystery,” which does, in fact, reunite the stars of “Just Go With It.” If you find that funny, you might well enjoy this blend of globe-hopping thriller — an American couple on vacation become suspects in a murder on a luxurious yacht — and sitcom humor. (Debuts Friday on Netflix)
